Harry survives X-MEN: APOCALYPSE to tell the tale!!! Oscar Isaac can do anything!

It is really true.

There’s a few ways to look at X-MEN: APOCALYPSE…  You can see it as the 9th Mutie film of the Fox world, following, X-MEN, X-MEN 2, X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, THE WOLVERINE, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and DEADPOOL.  You can also look at the film as being the fourth Bryan Singer directed X-MEN film.   Then there’s my feeling that it is the 3rd X-MEN film of the reboot era, which began with X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, which led to Singer’s return with DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and now APOCALYPSE…  
 
Sure, there’s Hugh Jackman connecting them all together, or the X-MEN theme of John Ottman’s…  but prior to Matthew Vaughn’s X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, the only X-MEN film that I just flat out love is X-MEN 2.  I still like the original X-MEN movie, but given the executive hell that movie had to go through, it is just a miracle it worked at all, so I’ve always liked it more than it probably deserved, but it started this ship to sail.
 
If we could time travel X-MEN: APOCALYPSE to 2000 looking as it did today, it would destroy those brains completely.  So how does it play now?  Pretty fucking great.  
 
Since FIRST CLASS’ casting of McAvoy and Fassbender as Xavier and Magneto and Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult as Mystique & Beast…  well, it all started working so much better.  I love Stewart & McKellen, but other than wishing James McAvoy would have his hair fall out every second

Don’t you just love that? Bridges adds class and cool to everything he’s ever been a part of, but for me the role that he is forever branded into my consciousness with is FLYNN in the original TRON.   There was something about his portrayal of that gaming programmer that made me want to tie my life to a computer.   Much like Matthew Broderick in WARGAMES.   Those were the two roles that made me a computer geek forever.

Meanwhile, aren’t you curious as hell about the Golden Circle?   What is it?   All I can think is that they must be going to Iceland.   What you got?
 
Keep it cool,

The Iron Man and The Big Lebowski actor confirmed the news this morning the same way almost every other new cast member has: on Twitter, with a Kingsman graphic bearing cryptic text suggesting something about his character…

Hello ladies and gentlemen, your pal Muldoon here with this week’s picks for SATURDAY SHORTS, your very own screening room here in the heart of AICN. The column is filled with interesting shorts from all over the globe and submitted by the filmmakers themselves (with the exception of one this week). With numerous film festivals going on this weekend, LAFF and Mammoth Lakes Film Fest for example, it’s cool to remember that every day a new film is coming out, or a new filmmaker is premiering their work. While it’s next to impossible to attend every fest out there, SATURDAY SHORTS is here to be watched at your leisure, a weekly film fest that’s sole purpose is to show off cool shorts created by passionate individuals. There are no tickets and no one is going to tap you on the shoulder if you’re watching them in your underwear (which can’t be said about LAFF, as I’ve found myself…). We are all here for the same reason; we love watching movies. Hopefully you find a film or two below that really knocks your socks off, potentially getting you hooked on a filmmaker (who before now) you’ve not known. Remember to crank the volume up, full screen each film, and leave your expectations at the door. Let’s get this show on the road!
Go grab yourself some popcorn, lock your kids in a closet, kill the lights, relax and check out this little weekly film fest we’ve got ourselves here!

2 Chainz – “Gotta Lotta” (Feat. Lil Wayne) Video

Lil Wayne & 2 ChainzGotta Lotta,” the first single from Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz recent collaborative full-length ColleGrove, hilariously interpolated part of Scatman John’s “Scatman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop)” in the hook. Now the two rappers have made the reference even clearer by releasing a music video that borrows its split-screen aesthetic from the … More »
