X-Men, You Lost Me Corey O'Brien |

X-Men, You Lost Me

I came across this article on one of my favorite sites, Vice.  Titled, "What the F*@k Is Going on In "X-Men: Days of Future Past?" and after reading it pretty much sums up my feelings as I left the theatre last weekend.  Though I really liked the movie I couldn't help feel like the line between exposition and action was a tough one to walk. We would get a great action scene followed by a lot of explanation. It's a famous story line in the X-Men universe, but if you never read the comics (I know, everyone says they did, but they really didn't) you are are a lost puppy and probably have a lot of questions.

Suspension of disbelief is key in any movie, but does "X-Men: Days of Future Past?" ask us for too much disbelief suspension?

Vice brings up some pretty solid arguments in their article such as:

-Why are people so bad at shooting at Mystique?

-Magneto frequently moves pieces of metal that are more than 100-feet away from him (the stadium, for instance). So why did keeping him 100-feet under the Pentagon matter at all? Couldn't he just drag every metal object in the Pentagon down on top of him?

-Why does nobody in the past have any questions for Wolverine about what happens with culture or technology or fashion or politics in the future?

These are just a few of the questions that are really ruining this movie for me.  Note: there are some spoilers here, but if you want to dive further down the rabbit hole in the X-Men movie universe take the plunge and read on here.

5 Things You Need to Know About the New Zach Braff Movie Corey O'Brien |

5 Things You Need to Know About the New Zach Braff Movie

Zack Braff hit his Kickstater goal, so we're all getting this for Summer.

1. The guy, Donald Faison, from "Scrubs" makes an appearance.  I hate "Scrubs" so this trailer is already giving me a bad taste in my movie-loving brain. It seems like every time I turn on Comedy Central they are showing it like NPR plays "A Prarie Home Companion" on the weekends. Couldn't they show something that is actually funny?  For the record I think Donald Faison is funny.  I just really hated "Scrubs" and I couldn't explain to you why.

2. Expect slow motion shots of people doing things that "surprise them" and "will affect them for the rest of their lives."  You will laugh, cry and feel emboldened until you leave the theater and hit the closest fast food joint, being slammed back to your life.

3. There is a new Shin's song in the trailer.  It doesn't have a title, but that's no matter because you don't really remember any of The Shins' song titles anyway.  You just know why all go "ooooOOOOoooouhhh Oooo ooo ooooo uhhhh" and that's just how you and I like them.

4. This is not "Garden State 2", but let's face facts.  It should be.  Every critic will hold it up to that candle. The math is too easy.

5. With all that said, I will still go see it.  I will get warm and fuzzies and probably want a wife, family life and the strength to embrace middle-age problems when they arrive at my doorstep.  Then I will wise up.  Also, Mr. Braff has such dreamy blue eyes.

Here is the trailer.  The Shins track really kicks in about a minute in. I am pretty sure you would know it right away with me pointing it out.

New "Guardians of the Galaxy" Trailer Corey O'Brien |
05/19/2014 | Filed In: Movies | Corey O'Brien | Guardians of the Galaxy

New

"Guardians of the Galaxy" shared a new trailer today.  I love everything about this movie, especially the racoon with a gun.  What I hate about this trailer and what will annoy me about the movie is the music. "Spirit in the Sky" again, really?  How much money is Norman Greenbaum sucking out of the collective pool of royalty money amongst music budgets in Hollywood. Who is Mr. Greenbaum's attorney that negotiated the sale of his soul to Satan for such blanket coverage? I would like to hire that lawyer.

Here is an actual list of movies and TV shows this song has been in. Put a bag over this song and don't take it off until its spirit is actually in the sky.

If that particular music selection didn't have you sticking tree branches in your ears it's followed by Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling." Did the music supervisor for this film graduate from the University of Unoriginality with a major in boring and a minor in trite?  "Hooked on a Feeling" has haunted me since its use in "Ally McBeal." Remember that stupid dancing baby?  

If these two songs were house guests you would have asked them to leave years ago or resorted to blunt force trauma and a backyard burial just to get away from their grating overuse in mass culture.

We are decades past the 70s, 80s or whatever decade these songs were conceived, back when people made out to them. All they do now is make us wretch and rightly so.

Now that I've got that off my chest I will say something positive...I really can't wait to see this film.  It looks original, close to the comic and it's Mavel so you know it will be slick.  Enjoy the trailer below.
