Yaaaaaasssss, I finally got my hands on the blu-ray. I loved the first movie (review) and was avoiding all mention of reviews and whatnot about this movie when it came out (except the soundtrack, because the soundtrack is great).
So you guys know I’m super slow when it comes to watching movies, right? Been meaning to watch this movie for ages but never never got around to it until…well, last month xD And I guess just in time as the sequel is coming out later this month? Spoilers if you have’t watched the movie!
I watched the first movie a few years ago (really weird but according to my databases I never reviewed the movie; which is weird because I could’ve sworn I remember typing up a review of the movie here *ponders*) and was pleasantly surprised at just how good it was. I’ve watched it a few times since and it’s definitly one of my favourite action movies. So naturally I was very excited to watch this movie.
MASSIVE SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the movie (or the first movie)!
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
So here’s the thing: I’ve watched the first two or three X-Men movies but I never really followed the franchise. I loved the 90s cartoon growing up and I didn’t quite feel the same love with the franchise, so even with the reboot and the Wolverine movies I didn’t really follow it. I only watched this movie because my brother had seen it first and was telling me how much he loved it…then I watched a few YouTube reviews from reviewers I follow and they raved about it…and then I finally got around to watching the first trailer (embedded above) and that’s what convinced me to check it out. So yes, MASSIVE SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the movie!
As some of you know, I was going through a bit of superhero fatigue last year-ish but it sort of picked up after watching and enjoying Ant-Man (review) and Doctor Strange (review). As a result, I finally got around to picking up Captain America: Civil War and watching it with my family. MASSIVE SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the movie!
