I need a better hobby

Yes, I went to the movies again.... I need a better hobby, it seems that watching movies is the only thing that I have done lately!  AnyWhoooooo.......

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Freaking Amazing!  The 3D was great, (when it worked, yes I am calling you out Regal Cinemas!!!!)  Enjoyed the storyline, the special effects were on point.  I personally wanted it to be about 30 minutes longer and do some more character building on QuickSilver.  One thing that impressed me was how they paid attention to past XMen movies and tied them together.  You will notice this too if you go watch it.  As I am typing this, the media is expecting XMen to cross $100 Million at the box office for Memorial Day Weekend!  *Spoiler*  Loved all of the original cameos from past XMen movies!


I wanted to like this movie so much, and to be honest I am unable to give an opinion on it.  Yes, I went to see it, Yes, I paid the up sale for 3D.  BUT.... when it came for the huge fight scene where Godzilla fights off the other monsters.... I literally fell asleep in the movie theater.  I guess I was just too exhausted.  I awoke when I heard clapping for the rest of the people in the movie theater that enjoyed the fight scene.  I enjoyed the graphics and storyline that I actually saw.  I will watch it again when it comes out on video.


You cant miss a Tommy Lee Jones film.  Here he plays General MacArthur and he has been given the task to rebuild Japan after WWII.  He gives MO's to some of his men to see if the Emperor of Japan should be tried to war crimes or not.  This movie is a history lesson that you did not learn in school.  Since I like learning new things about historical events, this had my interest the whole time.  If you don't like documentaries, you wont like this movie.
