Who knew that in 1981 Chris Claremont and John Byrne would write the perfect storyline for the Uncanny X-Men comics to completely erase Brett Ratner's debacle X-Men: Last Stand from our memories. Director Bryan Singer returns to helm his third X-Men movie and the seventh in the franchise. X-Men: Days of Future Past unites the new and old incarnations of the X-Men films acting as a direct sequel to the original trilogy as well as the prequel film X-Men: First Class. Matthew Vaughn reignited the franchise a few years back with the wildly beloved First Class, but can Singer return to the franchise that he created 14 years ago and bring back the magic that made those first two films such a success?
Have you ever thought of an awful/embarrassing/heartbreaking moment in your life and thought, “if I could just go back to that moment…” In The Infinite Man, we find Dean, brilliant scientific mind with the intentions of creating the perfect anniversary weekend for his girlfriend Lana. But, nothing is ever perfect. When events don't go according to plan, Dean works tirelessly for an entire year to invent time travel that will reset the events of the original day. If he can just avoid running into himself. Stuck in a mind-bending loop, both he and Lana ( and a weirdo of an ex-boyfriend) weave in and out of “the present” to amend their relationship.
Writer/Director Hugh Sullivan deserves a job offer from the Doctor Who writing staff. This script is written with such creative precision, it should be studied. I was constantly on the edge of my seat, trying to figure out how each scene would play out in respect to the loop. Catching new clues here and there but ultimately blown away by each new revelation. High five, Hugh. I find myself predicting the ending of most film and television shows about 30 minutes in, these days. This film is a beautiful 85 minutes in length and not once did I even glance at my watch. I had no idea what was ever coming next.
We've all heard that "opposites attract," but why? Writer, producer and director Darren Paul Fisher (The Inbetweeners) offers his explanation in Frequencies with the idea the each person has a certain "frequency," be it high or low. In simple terms, those with low frequencies are unlucky and those with high are in sync with the world around them.
