Will "X-Men: Days of Future Past" Make The Prognosis Even Worse?
Here are my personal opinions of the "X-Men" movies....
1. Too many "X-Men" movies have been made already.
2. Within each "X-Men" movie, so many characters are jam-packed together you just don't care about any of them.
3. Even worse, every character mostly looks like a reject from "Beverly Hills 90210"...."Charmed"....and "Smallville." In short, your typically faceless young people carrying S.A.G. membership cards. You could cast these kids in damn near anything, especially "Two and a Half Men" and they wouldn't set the world on fire.
4. Patrick Stewart does his usual schtick of channeling "Jean Luc-Picard" while sitting in his wheelchair.
5. If Bryan Singer really is directing "X-Men: DOFP" (or anyone else for that matter)...what more that is new and fresh could they possibly bring to the table that hasn't already been mowed over to death in all of the previous "X-Men" movies? We already know that we're going to have yet another overly crowded cast of young people with borderline acting abilities.
6. I predict a marginal box office success for "X-Men: Days of Future Past." A quick theatrical run and straight to DVD destination as soon as possible. Nothing special to be seen here. Move along....move along.
7. The problem with "X-Men: Days of Future Past"...is that it will be competing (next year) for attention in the current Hollywood era of much more talented directors than Bryan Singer (Joss Whedon, J.J. Abrams, Chris Nolan) making much more entertaining superhero and fantasy movies than Singer is capable of.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
