Review: X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, Grim Yet Satisfactory

The makers of the latest installment of a superhero franchise based on comic book characters set themselves a tall order: a prequel that is also a sequel to more than one movie, as well as the middle installment of a...

Another Day, Another Uninspiring X-MEN Trailer

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST: Watch The Japanese Teaser

To put it mildly, I did not like the first trailer for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past. At all. Enough so that I was hesitant to click on the new Japanese teaser for the film. I don't like...

Review: JACK THE GIANT SLAYER Boldly Slashes Forth, Free Of Irony

Weinberg Reviews X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

First, a little history. It was Bryan Singer's X-Men (2000) that more or less heralded the massive superhero movie renaissance we're currently enjoying (or mired in, depending on your tastes), and while it was hardly the first or even...

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Review

A good dozen, maybe more, amply endowed young ladies clad in only their lacy underthings strut into a high class club, each one soon vanishing into a private booth, accompanying at least one wealthy male party attendee as "Palisades Park"...

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Review

X-Men: First Class is a total pleasure, hitting all the action beats we've come to expect from big-budget studio productions, and adding much that makes it unique, at least among the sorry crop of sequels and prequels and mutated...

Hollywood Grind: How Matthew Vaughn Saved a Franchise

What a difference a director makes! Compare, for example, X-Men: First Class with X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine (with your eyes closed, if you wish), and the vast chasm of talent between Matthew Vaughn, Brett Ratner...
