Continuing a trend tailor-made for the Twitter generation, here are my quick takes on a few recently-watched genre-related films.
My brief thoughts follow…
- Snowpiercer (2014) – There was a lot to like about this film: interesting premise and story, good acting, the mood it evoked…and even if it doesn’t stand up to the scrutiny of a few questions that come to mind, it was still a fairly powerful (and accessible) film.
- World War Z (2013) – Probably the best thing about this film was the decent depiction of fast-moving zombies., other wise, not much to see here. On the bright side, I hear it’s so different from the source material that I felt comfortable that seeing this would not spoil that reading experience.
- X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) – An apparent attempt to reboot the series. Even so, I enjoyed this one. I likes me some time travel and even though that took away from some of the otherwise more dramatic scenes (the future can change!), it was still solid entertainment.
