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”.
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.
Nightcrawler was ADORABLE OMG HE WAS MY FAVORITE
Sophie Turner absolutely KILLED IT as Jean Grey. Like, Famke Janssen would be proud.
Tye Sheridan actually made me like Cyclops.
STORM FINALLY HAS AN ACCENT HOLY SHIT
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!
Sometimes when you lose your mobile phone, even though it’s frustrating, it’s sort of rewarding in many ways because, though we do rely on them a lot, we are not reliant on them. The world continues without.
