We don’t eat while recording. Surprise.
This month we return to watch another trilogy that we actually watched in December (I think. I can’t even remember anymore.) It’s X-Men: First Class, Days of Future Past, and Apocalypse. Logan is currently sitting at what 95% on Rotten Tomatoes? Which is a pretty far cry from Apocalypse, but we sat through that movie for you anyway.
Show-notes: Other stuff:
4:51Mag-neato. Pretty neat how this never actually got made. Instead they made First Class, which is a first class movie in my book.
6:01 The heck is this crap?
6:39 Speaking of Inception, apparently some ideas behind Inception and First Class were similar.
9:17 More about Lawrence, Mystique, and possible Mystique spinoff.
15:54 Oh god. Oh god. Vaughn. No.
17:50 Some stuff about special effects and some of the tight schedules they faced.
18:56 Read those article here and here.
19:27Here’s more about the most famous scene from Days of Future Past.
19:45 And here’s more about the shameless rehash of that scene in the next movie.
22:49 Yup. Well, this is probably just a joke. But yup. Almost as bad as those La La Land “If you’ve already seen it, see it again” ads.
33:39 Bryan Singer is dead in the X-men universe.
45:42 If you don’t know what it looks like, this is what it looks like. Also I guess it wasn’t where I thought it was, unless they also put one up on that huge billboard across the street from LAX.
