X-Men: First Class

Rating: 2/5

Synopsis (via IMDB): In 1963, Charles Xavier starts up a school and later a team, for humans with superhuman abilities. Among them is Erik Lensherr, his best friend… and future archenemy.

Director: Matthew Vaughn

Starring: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence

Time: 132 minutes, with plenty of bathroom break time somewhere in the middle

It’s too bad X-Men: First Class treats the source material from whence it came like a second class citizen. I absolutely LOVE the X-Men, but apparently only in comic form. The creative liberties taken with the franchise are just mind-boggling. Imagine writers and directors using Harry Potter characters to retell their own origin story of the title role. It’s a stupid idea, right? Now, imagine Harry Potter, in all its glory, was already drawn as a comicbook. Not only do movie writers already have the story, but its been storyboarded, too! I’m convinced the only reason Hollywood craps on the originals is to create union jobs. I mean, by now, they have to realize they aren’t better writers than the creators of these beloved characters, right? RIGHT? Read more…

Super Dinosaur #2

Raiting: 3/5

Synopsis: Max Maximus throws a temper tantrum before remembering his ace in the hole: Project X. He later gets a visit from Tricerachops, who reveals her employer to be The Exile. The mysterious newcomer proclaims a new world of dino-men is on the horizon, despite the fact that he seems to have an entirely human body (completely covered from head to toe). As they leave Maximus, the villain tosses a tracer onto The Exile’s cloak, which gets picked up back at the Dynamo Dome. Apparently, Max never bothered to create his own tech after he and the Dynamos split up. Derek and SD follow the beacon to the Arctic and meet The Exile themselves. Good thing the Kingstons – Dynamo Dome’s resident mechanics – just happened to finish designing some Arctic attack gear.
