I have a confession to make. I might be more excited to see X-Men: Days of Future Past than Captain America: Winter Soldier or The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Don’t misunderstand, I am poised to LOVE DESPERATELY both of those films even if they are disappointments. While Days of Future Past seems poised to be a train wreck of epic proportions: there’s time travel, killer robots, congressional hearings, and at least 50,000 characters, some new to screen, others returning, some are the same character played by two different actors in two different time periods and/or timelines and others are the same character as in another franchise played by two different actors and they might share the same name (maybe?) and parts of the same history (maybe not?) but nothing that happens in this movie has anything to do with what happens in that movie. Because that is not confusing at all.
And even though there have already been entire magazines devoted to this film and even though I have read the entire comic book story arc I have NO IDEA what this movie is about. Except:
Again, don’t misunderstand: the costumes are like to be just as much of a hot mess as everything else. But! They are also delicious. Look at those belt buckles. Look at that paisley. Look at that leather. Look at Xavier’s completely amazing loafers. Look at them!
