X-Men: Days of Future Past

GOTDAMN that is a great trailer. The sentinels look way cool. I really really really hope they don't fuck this up and that the good shit from First Class overwhelms all the crap that came out of X-Men 3. ALSO BRING BACK CYCLOPS AND JEAN GREY DAMMIT!

Anyone watch this new show on FOX? I liked the pilot mostly because Dorian seems like a cool character and Michael Ealy does a good job of playing him believably as a humanistic robot. Too bad Karl Urban spends the rest of the pilot doing his best knockoff Hugh Jackman impression, which is a shame considering I usually like the guy in everything he's in. I'll check this out for a bit, considering the dude who made Fringe made this. Also yay for hot ass Minka Kelly being on this (though she appears to have finally aged).

 

Pretty sure the Twist is gonna be that Kennex is actually a robot too, which makes sense considering he was in a coma for like 2 years, can't remember a bunch of shit, and is "special." 

 

 

 


Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Review of the initial episode from the A.V. Club below. They gave it a B, but mentioned that its still the best new network drama of the season.
 
 
Review from Uproxx
 
 
Lots of haterade in those comments, but I don’t see an overall consensus as to what most people really expected. You’re not gonna get super top notch Special Effects or Superhero battles on a network show. Game of Thrones has great effects because since they only have 10 episodes a year, they have more room in the budget per episode to do crazy ish. And its not like anything in the episode was flat out BAD, like in pilots for shows like Under the Dome or The Event.
 
I gave it a B+. Off the bat, Coulson is better than ever. I liked that Skye chick alot, mostly because she had the Whedon dialogue down already and she’s SUPER hot (I also read that she’s only 21, half Chinese and was a pop star in China for awhile WTF). Also I’ve never heard of the phrase “token conspiracy theoriest/groupie before.” Everyone else seems to follow a type or just acts as a character straight from Firefly, but there’s enough hints at backstory for each that they should sufficiently flesh em all out later on. I can’t think of one Drama with a large ensemble cast that OFF THE BAT gave us well rounded, shaded characters (shows like Justified and Breaking Bad did, but they have much smaller casts and are on cable). Otherwise the pilot had some solid action, some pretty funny moments and had a nice unexpected moral lesson at the end that basically spelled out what the show’s really all about. Also I <3 Robin Scherbatsky and am excited to see her on the show next season full time. I thought Maria Hill was supposed to be a cold bitch (or at least that's what I thought was going on in the Civil War comic I heard so much about), so I'm cool with her being kinda snippy and nurturing with Whedon's input.
 
I'm glad that we're finally getting a legit TV show about living in a world with Superheroes and I think Whedon and his crew will do it justice. Plus it will be pretty cool if the stuff the SHIELD guys work toward solving all season eventually affects the plotlines of The Avengers or other Marvel movies. If it gets good enough to eventually warrant cameos from the major stars of The Avengers, then I think the show will be an even bigger success.
 
 
 
Anyway it got huge ratings off the bat, so it should be safe for awhile.

This trailer sold me when Christian Bale played BUTT BONGOS on Amy Adams midway through

 

 

Oh and its directed by David O. Russell and stars the casts of The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook. Give it all the Oscars already.


Orange Is The New Black

So I spent tonight drinking and watching the first 4 episodes of this EXCELLENT new show on Netflix. Can't believe a show about a Women's Prison is the new LOST!  Seriously it is, because it borrows the Flashback structure per episode and Purgatory theme from that show. Check it out it out because its equally hilarious and deep. I guess the chick who made Weeds made this too and its getting crazy good reviews. Also Donna from That 70s Show boobs in the first 30 seconds of the first episode. And Jason Biggs for all you Jason Biggs fans out there?

 

To backup my statements here, I present this article from Warming Glow
