Film Review No.316: X-Men Days Of Future Past


Not sure who did that fan art up there but for a fan of the original comic arc that this film shares its title with, that art is geek city. Hats off to the unknown sir. Anyway, X-Men Days of Future Past was released today here in the UK and I got back from seeing it a couple of hours ago. Is it a good film? I reckon so. Click the link below for an actual review.

Here’s That There The Wolverine Trailer What You Does Wanted…


Yeah, I made that title more awkward than was needed. Anyway, here’s the trailer for The Wolverine. A sequel to a film that probably shouldn’t have been made. My views on X-Men Origins: Wolverine are pretty much that I can watch it but it’s really weak and messy. It’s not X-Men 3 bad, it’s just normal bad. But hey, at least Ryan Reynolds was cool for the 30 seconds he was in it, right? Anyway, click the link for the trailer for a film that is already looking like an improvement.

Stats Dump! 6 Months Old Edition

The Film Dump is 6 months old today!!! That means I have watched a total of 77 films in 6 months and wrote a review for each one. Actually I’ve seen 78 but I couldn’t decide if Chanbara Striptease was really a film or not and so I ignored it. As you should to. Anyway, I said I’d do a Stats Dump post after 6 months so here it is. Click the link if you’re the sort of boring sod that likes statistics!

Can I hit 100 reviews by Christmas? I don’t doubt it.

Stats Dump Time!

It’s officially the end of month 2 for The Film Dump and stats have been all crazy up in dis bitch over the last month. I did a stats dump entry on May 25th and at the end I said I’d do another at the 6 month mark. But due to the massive leap in views I got this month and the amount the stats have been shaken up I thought I do one now. I’m a bit of a stats geek, hopefully you are too. Here we go…

Seriously, F*** Brett Ratner

So I’ve just read an amazing piece of news. Apparently Brett Ratner thinks X-Men 3 is a better film than X-Men First Class because it made more money in it’s weekend. I think I have a few things to say about that after the jump


Afterthoughts: X-Men: First Class

There’s a danger to reviewing a film right after having seen it. Your brain is so full of swirling ideas about the film that inevitably some things get lost in the shuffle and you forget to write them down. So in this post I shall be throwing up a series of randomly generated thoughts that have popped into my head in the days since seeing the film. I get the feeling this may become a regular feature.

Movie Review No.22: X-Men: First Class

So here it is. The end of the first themed weekend on The Film Dump. I’ve gone through the goodness of X-Men 1 and 2, and then trudged through the hell of X-Men 3 and the mediocrity of the Wolverine movie and now I’m here, at X-Men First Class. Literally just got back from watching it so here we go.

It’s like the X-Men in but with turtlenecks
