    X-Men: Feelings of the Conditional Present

    As a non-reader of comic books, I have gone into the X-Men (and Avengers, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, etc.) movies with a general knowledge of the characters, but not an extreme opinion of the stories. As such, I can only comment on the movies as they are presented on the screen (and not how they compare to the comic books).

    In general, I have enjoyed the previous installments, but do not consider myself a rabid fan. I can only imagine how difficult it is to balance character and plot development with action sequences. My memories of the previous movies are of well-balanced stories that kept me interested throughout; Origins: Wolverine was the best in many ways. Future Past is a two hour movie, and spends three-quarters of its time on plot and character. The trailers contain portions of every action sequence in the film, so there is almost nothing left to surprise the viewer.

    Additionally, Future Past presents the challenge of reconciling three competing storylines (the original X-Men trilogy, Origins, and First Class) and more characters than I can count! Who do we include? Who do we leave out? And which version to we use? Some of the scenes set in 2023 seemed shoehorned in to remind the viewer of the “other half” of the team.

    Don’t get me wrong; I enjoyed the movie. There were many scenes and sequences that I found engaging, entertaining, or amusing. I liked the cameos at the end to show “all is well.”

    One way of summing up my experience is to simply say, the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer that preceded the film was more exciting. PotA trailers have shown backstory and hinted at engagements, but they haven’t spoiled the enormity that they promise. Time will tell if the movie lives up to the trailers.

    As a person that only saw one trailer. Which was the one at the end of spidey 2. I didn’t have the same issue as others did.

    I did some fun things. Was a bit gruesome with deaths but overall I thought it was a good movie. Second only to first class as far as xmen goes.
