"X-MEN" (2000) Review

If anyone had asked me what was the first genuine superhero film, based upon Marvel Comics characters, my choice would be the 2000 flick, "X-MEN". In fact, I suspect that it was the first Marvel film ever shown in the movie theaters. Its success spawned a series of superhero films that continue to this day.

Based upon the Marvel Comics series, the plot for "X-MEN" began first in 1944, at a concentration camp in German-occupied Poland. Thirteen year-old Erik Lehnsherr is separated from his parents, upon entry to the camp. And in an attempt to reach them, he causes a set...

"X-MEN ORIGINS: Wolverine" (2009) Review

I must admit that when I had learned of Marvel’s plans to release a fourth movie in the "X-MEN" franchise, I did not warm to the idea. And when I learned that this fourth movie would focus upon the origins of James Howlett aka Logan aka Wolverine, my wariness deepened.

Fortunately, "X-MEN ORIGINS: Wolverine" eased most of my doubts. It turned out to be a surprisingly entertaining movie. Directed por Gavin Hood, it told the story of how a Canadian mutant named James Howlett (or Logan) became...

Two years following the success of 2014's "X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST", Marvel Entertainment released a new "X-MEN" film set ten years after the anterior one. The movie proved to be the fourth one directed por Bryan Singer.

"THE WOLVERINE" (2013) Review

Fans of the X-MEN have been discussing the making of Bryan Singer's new entry to the franchise recently. But while said fãs wait eagerly for "X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST", 20th Century raposa and Marvel Comics released a segundo movie featuring the mutant with adamantium claws called "THE WOLVERINE".

Directed por James Mangold, who first worked with estrela Hugh Jackman in 2001's "KATE AND LEOPOLD", "THE WOLVERINE" is a tale that begins nearly seventy years earlier, during the waning days of World War II. In August 1945, James Howlett aka Logan aka the Wolverine is a U.S....

"X-MEN: FIRST CLASS" (2011) Review

Recently, I came across a comment that the last "X-MEN" movie, 2009's "X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE", had been a failure. I found this opinion surprising, considering that it actually made a profit at the box office. Failure or not, Marvel Studios decided to continue the movie franchise with a fifth entry called "X-MEN: FIRST CLASS".

Directed por Matthew Vaughn, "X-MEN: FIRST CLASS" is, like the 2009 movie, another origins tale. Only it traced the beginnings of the two friends-turned-adversaries, Charles "Professor X" Xavier and Erik "Magneto" Lensherr. The movie...

Below is the tracklist with a few lyrics to highlight why they remind me of the character of Logan.

01. All is Violent, All is Bright (Instrumental) - GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT

02. It’s Been A While - STAIND

Its been awhile
Since I could look at myself straight
and it's been awhile
since i said i'm sorry
It's been awhile
Since I've seen the way the candles light your face
It's been awhile
But I can still remember just the way you taste
But everything I can't remember as fucked up as it may seem
I know it's me i cannot blame this on my father
he did the best he could for me
