Quick note: I would have had his posted sooner, but our vacation fell at the time of writing my review.

Time travel with awesome affects is probably the best way I can describe X-Men: Days of Future Past.
I have already read a couple different “fanboy” sites where the movie is getting beat up because it doesn’t hold true to the 1981 comic story line.
Review by Logan
What would you do if you woke up after being frozen since World War II? Why, fight another war, of course!
Not that Steve Rodgers wants to fight another war, you understand. The world just can’t seem to keep from blowing itself up without him. That’s not really a euphemism, either.
When I went into the theater, I was jittery. More jittery than I’ve been for a movie in a long, long time. I love Captain America. He’s one of the best heroes in comics. I was greatly disappointed in the first movie (I went to watch Cap beat up the bad guys, not play circus clown to cranky drunk soldiers), but from what I had seen of this one, I had very high hopes for it. Especially since people were saying it was even better than the Avengers. I’m not willing to say it was better than The Avengers. But it’s definitely the best standalone Marvel film to date (that is, non-superhero team movies).
