I’ll miss playing a character that can bounce from A to Z like that and that is the cleverest in the room but also the silliest in the room. You know, just being the Doctor, he’s the Doctor. What a character. Of course there’s always a part of you that goes “I never want to go”. There are no parts like this. I think it’s a good time for me to move on and we’ve got the 50th anniversary. It’s the biggest year in the show’s history and I’m playing the part and I pass it on with a smile to the next guy and say “Good luck, buddy. You’re going to have to work hard”.

X-Men: Apocalypse

So, yesterday, because I am a huge X-Men fan, I went and saw X-Men Apocalypse with my buddy and so I thought I’d leave my thoughts on it. Don’t worry, spoilers will be under the read more cut and I’l tag it as well so, if you haven’t seen X-Men Apocalypse yet, don’t click the read more! Unless you don’t care about spoilers, then go right ahead!

  • SBack with the original X2 theme for the opening credits song. HELL FUCKING YES. WE GOT AN X-MEN MOVIE PEOPLE.
  • HOLY SHIT HOW IS THIS PG-13 THERE IS SO MUCH GRAPHIC VIOLENCE IN THIS MOVIE. DON’T TAKE YOUR KIDS TO SEE IT. LIKE, I’M NOT EVEN SURE 13 YEAR OLDS SHOULD SEE THIS. MAYBE 15+. BUT DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILD TO SEE THIS IF THEY ARE UNDER 13 unless you want nightmares galore and to be “that person” who disrupts the whole movie with a screaming kid and then doesn’t want to take it out because you don’t want to miss the movie.
  • James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender: Still amazing as Charles and Erik. Like… holy shit. They are on the same level as Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen with these characters now and I love it.
  • Jennifer Lawrence: Either stop being a whiny, high maintenance bitch about the Mystique makeup or get out of the movie because I go to see X-Men to see Mystique, not Jennifer Lawrence not wanting to wear makeup.
  • Evan Peters is even better as Quicksilver in this movie. Like… I’m sorry, but I’m happy they split the Maximoff twins because he adds so much humor to this movie.
  • Was Oscar Issac even in the movie? Because all I saw was a big, scary Mutant. Oscar Issac was nowhere to be seen.
  • Sophie Turner absolutely KILLED IT as Jean Grey. Like, Famke Janssen would be proud. 
  • Tye Sheridan actually made me like Cyclops.
  • I hated Psylocke’s character. She was nothing but a cold, unforgiving bitch the whole movie. But she was still kinda cool. Not a slight on Olivia Munn at all, she did a good job being a mean bitch.
  • Awkward, flustered Xavier is my favorite Xavier.
  • Critics are being too harsh on this movie. It’s got some unnecessary parts, which I’ll address, but those can be forgiven.
  • THERE’S A METALLICA SONG IN THIS MOVIE! Four guesses which one (that was a hinty hint) 

All right, playtime is over. Spoilers under the cut!
