Yes, It Would Seem That "X-Men-Days of Future Past" is Going to Be a Big Hit...In England!!

Yes, the press just loves "X-Men: Days of Future Past" England!!

Let me make some predictions and observations here!!

1. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" isn't going to make much of a splash here in the United States. It's going to get lost in the shuffle with all of the other superhero movies being released in the United States at the same time.

2. If in fact Bryan Singer really did direct this thing, it's going to perform domestically and slightly better internationally the same way every other Bryan Singer movie and "X-Men" movie has ever performed domestically and internationally. Moderately "OK" and not setting the world on fire.

3. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is (putting it bluntly) one too many "X-Men" movies ( Seven "yawn inducing" movies so far including the two 'Wolverine' movies) of a movie series that was never terribly interesting in the first place. Directing the first two "X-Men" movies, Bryan Singer laid the ground work for this movie series in such a way, that it wouldn't be interesting in the slightest to explore these mutant superhero movies. He made the "X-Men" characters boring as hell. Not worthy of further exploration all the way up to a seventh movie. Even a trilogy of movies and stopping there would have been pushing it.

4. The "X-Men" movies have always been hampered by the same tired plot device. "Genetic mutants trying to be accepted by mainstream society." Who cares? No one really cared when this plot device was first introduced in the first "X-Men" movie.

5. We will see time travel in "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Who cares? We also saw time travel in "Men in Black 3" where it was genuinely funny. We also saw time travel in "Back to The Future" where it was genuinely funny. And we also saw time travel multiple times in "Star Trek" where it was genuinely inspiring and funny. Bryan Singer is not inspiring and funny (if in fact he really did direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past.") Besides, time travel has been overused in the movies and television for years.

6. I have seen enough Bryan Singer movies in the theater to realize that he is not the sort of filmmaker capable of engaging and charming an audience on any level. This is based upon audience reactions to his movies. He doesn't have a sense of humor, and he is not an interesting storyteller. I have observed enough theater audience reactions to his movies to realize this (as well as my own reactions.) "General boredom" is the usual response Bryan Singer movies get from theater audiences. It will be no different for audiences with "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

7. In many circles, Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns" is regarded as the worst superhero movie ever made. I've already discussed at great lengths and in great detail the huge faults with this movie. But the main problem was, Bryan Singer made "Superman" boring and not interesting in the slightest. The "dead silent reactions" theater audiences gave to this movie were astounding.

8. One too many "X-Men" movies combined with Bryan Singer's inability to engage and charm audiences (if in fact he really did direct "X-Men: Days of Future Past") promises yet another boring "X-Men" movie due this summer.


 Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on

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 (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.
