X-Men: Days of Future Past (Movie Review)

Image
Summary:  Believing that mutants pose a threat to humanity, Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) creates the sentinels. Sentinels are enormous robotic weapons that are able to detect a mutant gene and zero in on that person. 50 years into the future, the sentinels are not just targeting mutants anymore; they are targeting everyone who are associated with them. Mutants now facing extinction, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) goes to the past and must rally the X-men of the past to help change a crucial moment in history, thus, saving their future.  Opening Scene: Right off the bat, we see into a dystopian future where mutants and humans alike are being killed and destroyed. In Moscow, we see familiar and new faces such as; Bobby aka Iceman, Kitty Pryde and Colossus. We see them fighting sentinels and these robots are actually adopting/replicating the mutants abilities. It's insane to see how easily our favourite mutants have been defeated and killed. Right away, this movie is thrilli

2016: How It Didn't Break Me!

If you have been alive during 2016 then you know exactly just how brutal it was for all of us. It seemed that I would come across a meme every other day on social media describing and painting 2016 as the year from hell. And if you do look at everything that has happened during this year then yes it has been quite unsettling for most. For this post I"ll go over all the accomplishments and over-bearing moments that I have faced during 2016. While also showing to all of you that 2016 did not beat or in lack of better words break me.  Believe it or not but 2016 has definitely been jam-packed full of lessons, accomplishments and unfortunate moments. Nonetheless, this year was bad in a good way. You know what I mean?  First off I'd like to start with the accomplishments of 2016. I graduated college! During these 3 years of hard long work, unwanted friendships, finding myself and learning about myself I've finally crossed the finish line. I wrote a blog post describing

The Wolverine (Movie Review)

Image
***There will be spoilers.*** Summary: In the present day, Logan (Hugh Jackman) lives as a hermit in Yukon who is tormented by hallucinations of Jean Grey(Famke Janssen); the woman and mutant he loved but was forced to kill. Logan gets tracked down by Yukio (Rila Fukushima) on behalf of Yashida who is dying. He wants to meet Logan because he was a Japanese soldier that Logan saved during World War II. Opening Scene: The scene is set back in World War II, where we can see Logan Aka Wolverine saving a Japanese soldier in Japan where an atomic bomb hits. Which we find out is Logan having a flashback but then is having a hallucination of killing Jean. To be fair if I had to kill the man I loved I would have the same issues. I definitely have an understanding when it comes to Logan trying to enact revenge for the grizzly bear. I don't condone hunting mercilessly, especially, when it's just for sport and the hunters are not showing mercy for these animals. I don't under
