At What Point Do Movies Stop Being Made to Entertain Audiences and Instead Turn Solely into Instruments For Trying to Salvage a Director's Career?


The following is based upon the extremely shaky premise that Bryan Singer actually did direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

The upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" promises to be overly bloated with too many characters, the overly used time travel device from "Star Trek", "Tranformers-esque" robots, Patrick Stewart channeling "Jean - Luc Picard" for the umpteenth time, Hugh Jackman flexing his biceps and swinging his claws for the umpteenth time, and the umpteenth story (theatrical) retelling of how the "X-Men" are being persecuted by society. Sheesh!! Isn't there anybody working at 20th Century Fox who wears a business suit smart enough to realize "enough is enough" with this stupid movie series?

I could be wrong (but I highly doubt it)...but the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" (with everything but the kitchen sink thrown in to its mix) is smelling like nothing but a political instrument to try and salvage Bryan Singer's directing career (after the consecutive box office failures of "Jack The Giant Slayer", "Valkyrie", and "Superman Returns.")

Why else would "X-Men: Days of Future Past" need to be made? Everything that can possibly be said about the "X-Men" characters has already been said in the previous six "X-Men" movies, including the two "Wolverine" movies: "These characters are persecuted by society and they have as much right to co-exist (as everyone else) with everyone else who doesn't have a coat of fur, fangs, and claws."

Every other movie series in Hollywood has always managed to wrap up what needs to be said in a "Trilogy." This includes the "Iron Man" movies, "Back to The Future", the original "Spiderman" movies directed by Sam Raimi. On rare occasions a movie series can go on forever if they truly are iconic and immortal. This includes "Star Wars", "Star Trek", and "James Bond." But "X-Men??" These mutants should have been read their last rites four sequels ago.

It seems to me that when a movie series reaches its seventh movie, and at the same time the movie series really doesn't need to be dug up anymore because everything has already been said that needs to be said in the movie series.... Someone has a troubled career in Hollywood and is trying to be rescued by a movie series that should have been laid to rest four sequels ago.


 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.
