    The X-Men series needed this movie big time after messing up the series after X2. You can tell Fox didn't care too much about the series until Marvel's success and decided to redo the series to match up closer to the comics and make up for their mistakes, which Days of Future Past does. Building upon the success and foundation laid by First Class, Days of Future Past combines the First Class universe with the previous X-Men movies into one somewhat understable universe. Really you're not supposed to focus on all this and that's fine as the ending undoes almost every mistake Fox made especially from X-Men the Last Stand. It's all about the journey, not the destination. Time travel stories rarely make sense and Days of Future Past uses this to its advantage by not focusing at all on rules and effects and more about the mission: saving mutantkind from extinction. The plot follows Wolverine being sent back to the 70's to stop Mystique from assassinating a scientist which will cause an apocalypic future where indestructible killing machines called Sentinels wipe out most mutants and humans alike. The future is bleaker than most post apocalypic lands and the last remaining X-Men are betting everything on Wolverine to stop Mystique and reunite both Professor X and Magneto together; without them the dream of peaceful cohabitation between humans and mutants will be a pipe dream. One of the biggest problems with X-Men movies is they have overstuffed casts and Days of Future Past has so many that most are cameos at best and don't serve any purpose beyond fan service or use in action sequences. Don't bother to remember any of the mutants in the future as they're only used in set pieces and the one whose scene is easily the best, Quicksilver, is here and gone before you notice eh was even there in the first place. Halle Berry continues her useless streak as Storm by doing her usual routine of doing nothing or calling lightning out of the sky. Hugh Jackman continues to get better as Wolverine with each movie and Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellan are their usual best, but the real treat is their younger selves with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender giving them a run for their money as which pair are the better frienemies. The only weak spot is Jennifer Lawrence whose Mystique isn't that threatening or dark enough like her comic counterpart; it's not that believable. Days of Future Past is the successful redo the X-Men series desperately needed while setting seeds for the future that will next be seen in X-Men: Apocalypse. If you got turned off by the previous mediocre entries, then Days of Future Past will make you like the X-Men once again.

    The Best Buy exclusive edition of X-Men: Days of Future Past 3D is beautiful. The little extra packet of information cards are nothing really, but I like how the whole case is designed. Worth it! The movie itself is undoubtedly among the best X-Men outings yet. The all-star cast and the ways they are utilized are powerful and elegant. Many of the characters have all developed in different ways since we've last seen them, and then you get to watch them evolve as the movie goes on. Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) has reached full flailing a**-kicking mode with some great action sequences that have that particular Mystique style to them. The disparity between Professor X's past and future selves is very interesting, and we get to experience him in such vulnerability and struggle as we have never previously seen. It's also great to see the shades emerge of Magneto's dark personality that Ian McKellen has so wonderfully portrayed. Who better to live up to the expectation than the incomparable Michael Fassbender. Some of the most stunning and memorable sequences in the movie were brought to life by the carefree charm of Evan Peters' Quicksilver. Surprisingly, I was a little disappointed in James McAvoy's performance. He is still a great actor; I just thought a few of his choices of delivery for certain lines were odd and could have been better, but overall, he was still a great Professor X. I'm definitely starting to split hairs here so I'll stop myself from getting into every actor and character. Or, maybe one more. I have to mention Hugh Jackman as Logan, the beloved Wolverine. He still has that same smirking, dismissive wit as always, but he has also matured with the guidance of Patrick Stewart's Professor X. Then when he goes back in time, everything is backwards; he is the mature one, and he must guide the young and troubled mutants. I absolutely loved the way they presented Wolverine in this movie. The main takeaway from this review should be that I could go on and on about how many things there are to enjoy in this movie. I hope I didn't spoil anything for you that you would have liked to discern on your own, but I tried to keep it general with my comments which I think I've done. Either way, I can't have spoiled too much as it is bursting at the seams with all the things that we've come to love in the X-Men franchise. The scope of this movie was truly a very difficult undertaking, but somehow, they managed to make a thoroughly enjoyable and unique movie out of it (And make sure you stay 'till the credits end because you are in for a massively enticing post-credits teaser). I cannot wait for the next one. And all the powers! Ahh, the powers!

    What a great movie with astounding extras! This edition comes with wonderful art cards that are just wonderful to look at. The box is really cool, too. As a matter of fact, as soon as I bought this movie, I instantly threw out the Blu-Rays (I had already seen it in theatres, anyway, and I couldn't bear to watch it again without the near-constant seat-kicking, crunching of popcorn, not-so-whispery whispers of "Oh no he di-n't!", and the almost-baby the girl three rows behind me must've been having), and kept the art. Oh! And by "art," dear reader, what I mean is the *two* collectable booklets of art it comes with. One is a Trask file - well, kind of a mini-one, which kind of made me uncomfortable, as I didn't know if that was meant to be a dig at Peter Dinklage - that contains photo dossiers on all of the X-Crew, really well-posed, as if they knew that, someday, they'd make their way into some supervillain's dossier, and they'd better look good. The other booklet contains fan art, which is great because how often do you get to see the fan's artistic expression of the movie's artistic expression of the comic book's artistic expression? I doubt you'll catch *DC* letting its fans come within a 10-mile radius of *its* art. Roland Barthes once said, "Each of us has his own rhythm of suffering." He must've been talking about *DC Comics* when he said that, because this recent Marvel release indicates a studio that is without suffering, and wishes its fans to be similarly-situated. I also cannot express enough how essential it is that you buy this movie from BestBuy, like I did. Other stores sell this Blu-Ray - or, if your some kind of cave-dwelling cretin, "DVD" - but only BestBuy gives fans the art they so deserve, or, in some cases, created. By including this much art in its Blu-Ray Special Edition, BestBuy is effectively showing the world that if the Met starts charging an actual entrance fee (not like that "suggested" one they have now - I always pay a quarter! HA!), we're still okay. We will still have access to quality art that's on quality paper that comes with a quality movie for when that art gets boring. I really hope BestBuy puts art with more movies, but be careful BigGuy! Let's not let this get out of hand! I don't want to buy a Chagal with my *Think Like a Man, Too*. Some nice, tasteful fan art will quench my thirst just fine, BestBuy, much like the assortment that comes with *X-Men: Days of Future Past*. Thank you, BestBuy, for another fine product that comes with pretty smashing art. I'll definitely come back and see what you have in the Special Edition (Now with More Art!) section soon!

    Bryan Singer returns to steer this excellent sequel to the X-Men saga. In reality the title should probably be expanded to include X-Women as the ladies take on some major roles this time around. Certainly with Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence available, it makes sense to expand her role as Raven/Mystique who is the catalyst for the film’s plot. She doesn’t disappoint…and looks great in blue. Unlike many of the super-hero films, “Future Past” doesn’t rely on dramatic city destruction to hold its audience. This film has an actual story, if to a large extent fantastical. Set sometime in the near future, the X-Men as well as much of humanity is being exterminated by powerful giant robot-like Sentinels. The have adaptive powers and both mutants and humans are fighting for survival. Prof. X (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen), now working together, decide to try to go back in time and change history. Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) uses her time bending skills to return Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) to 1973 in order to stop Dr. Trask (Peter Dinklage) from selling the Sentinel idea to the U. S. government. The key element is Raven whose capture by Trask is the key to the Sentinel’s adaptive ability. Her subsequent killing of Trask, leads Nixon’s (Mark Camacho) government to give the go ahead for the Sentinel acquisition. So the goal is to stop Raven so that there is no sympathy to destroy the mutants. Logan must find Prof. X’s younger Xavier (James McAvoy) and his then enemy Erik/Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and bring them together for the mission. It isn’t all that easy however. A character new to the movie franchise is perhaps the most memorable in his short screen appearance. Quicksilver (Evan Peters) is recruited to help break into the Pentagon prison cell that holds Erik who has allegedly assassinated President Kennedy. Bending those fatal bullets, don’t you know. In a brilliant display of special effects, we see Quicksilver’s ability to move at light speed by slowing down everything around him. It is amazing to watch and hilarious to boot. Alone, it is worth the price of admission. Singer and screenwriter, Simon Kinberg have done a nice job integrating the old with the new. And with a successful mission we see some old friends return, albeit briefly. The film may be a little talky for some, but the action sequences are well done and plentiful enough. This is a terrific movie.

    Welcome back, Bryan Singer

    After years of shaky uncertainty, the X-Men film franchise has taken solid step back on track, proving to be one of the great comic book film properties around. Matthew Vaughn helped get us started in the right direction with First Class, but then the production team came up with a brilliant idea to tie the new films in with the old, by adapting one of the most iconic and famous X-Men storylines of all time, Days of Future Past. Bryan Singer returns to the directors chair, once again showing that he's the man to bring the X-Men to the screen. Don't get me wrong, Vaughn did a fine job with the previous film, but I felt like his own personal stamp was kind of missing. And here, Singer has the benefit of two incredible casts, joined together by the common thread that is Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. Now, some people like complain about how Wolverine has become too much of a central character. First off, Jackman is outstanding in the role, and has come into it much as, dare I say, Sean Connery embodied the role of James Bond back in the 1960s (and this is coming from a massive James Bond fan). Secondly, yes, Jackman is front and center for the beginning of the movie, but the story quickly shifts focus to the broken Charles Xavier of the '70s, wonderfully played by James McAvoy. Just as it should be, this X-Men outing provides plenty of visual effects and action, but much plenty of wonderful character and emotional moments as well, making these characters ones to care about. And of course, there's the stand-out scene with Quicksilver, wonderfully played by Evan Peters. The story overall is very enthralling and engaging, but my biggest criticism is that it starts to drag a little bit towards the end and lose its momentum just a smidge. I'm not going to delve too much more into the film, as there are thousands and thousands of others out there, and I would also like to get to the specifics of this Blu-ray. The picture and audio quality are outstanding, and some of the best I've seen. I had partially bought this on Black Friday for me to test out on my new home theatre set-up, and it's a blast to watch (and listen to). I haven't had a chance to dive into the extras, but even without them, this is a great disc to own.

    An absolute blast from beginning to end! This is a redemption for the X-Men franchise. Showing that you truly can fix things, even after severe damage has been done to it (X-Men 3 and the first Wolverine film). In a bold attempt to bring together what seemed like two separate franchises, DOFP brings two timelines together seamlessly. The writers do a great JOB balancing, and making sense of he time travel, which is a very hard thing to do. I also love how they coincide with, and effect real world occurrences, much like First Class did with the Bay of Pigs. We get another situation in this with a mutant involved in one of the biggest events in out culture's history. There are some incredible performances that are at the root of this film. Hugh Jackman, as usual, excels as Wolverine in his seventh try at the hero. Jennifer Lawrence is used much more that she was in First Class and plays her very pivotal role with a great vulnerability and strength as she is torn between two worlds. Evan Peters as Quicksilver was the biggest surprise of the cast. After the initial pictures of him leaked, I was very worried because he looked like an idiot and his costume design was laughable. After seeing him in action, I can say how totally wrong I was! He is involved in a scene that has the best use of SLOWmotion I've ever seen in a movie! The true star, for me is the incredible Michael Fassbender as Magneto. I can't believe I can say this with confidence, but, Fassbender's Magneto has surpassed Ian McKellen's take on the character. He shows such a great range, and his conflict with Xavier is exploited beautifully this time around. The quality action scenes had me wanting to jump out of my seat from excitement at times. There were several goosebump inducing moments that had me in awe of the scope and magnitude of the film. Bryan Singer has slid back into the role of director as if he never left and he has washed away the bad taste that previous X-Men INSTALLMENTS had left in fans mouths. This is a new beginning for the franchise and I can't wait to go for the next ride that they take us on. If they can keep up the momentum, I can see this franchise being just as successful and even on par with the quality of the Avengers universe!

    This movie works on so many levels and yet never forgets to have fun. It takes a trip in seeing characters from before in the franchise and integrates them with the newer, younger cast from X-Men First Class and does so brilliantly. Most of all, this movie has a different trajectory and flavor to the other X-Men films, and really any other comic book film. It is about attempting to travel into the past to provide a new, if slightly different, but more peaceful outcome. Wolverine, usually the resident gruff action hero has a mere few scenes to display his ferocity; Charles Xavier is nearly retreated to being unrecognizable; Mystique again drives the plot depending on which side she sides with but isn't the central character. Of all the X-Men, Xavier is rarely the focus; we as an audience assume he is in control and the fixed point for everyone else. But here, we see a Charles that has lost all hope, and barely a glimmer of what we know he'll become. If First Class was about a friendship torn with slight emphasis on Magneto, Days of Future Past is Xavier's arc. The movie has a few logic and plot holes that are there but can be enjoyed if not thinking of them up. The antagonist is well-intentioned but leaves a little unexplained of his motivation to do what he does; though at the current running time of the movie it'd be difficult to be too much longer. The score is lush and bombastic and the special effects don't disappoint. The editing is deft and clean, leaving not a single excessive glance or mistimed jumble of action. Best of all, this Rogue Cut includes not only the alternate and original version of the film but also the theatrical, and both with commentaries. It is interesting to see what was cut and why, but also the realization of how different certain scenes mean under a different context. There is enough levity and quiet yet powerful dramatic moments that seal Charles into become Xavier. There is hope brought out in the story and hope for a new for the future of the X-Men series itself.

    I consider myself a pretty advanced comic book fan, so I was well aware of the original storyline, as well as the development of the film and the many changes made between the original source material and this film adaptation. As someone who works in the field, I am also aware of how much has to change in order for the adaptation to be as effective on film as the original was in 4 color print. All that being said, I was very pleased with the film, as both an avid movie-goer and as a comic book fan. This is definitely one of the better X-Men francise movies and I would actually place it as one of the top 3 (alongside X2: X-Men United and X-Men: First Class) X-Men films. It's a solid feature film that continues building the world established in First Class, while paying homage to the original trilogy of films. Humor, action, a strong story, VFX spectacle and solid performances make this a worthwhile film, though new viewers may not find it as enjoyable unless they've viewed the other entries into the series. I highly suggest watching X-Men, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand and most definitely X-Men: First Class prior to watching this film. X-Men Origins Wolverine and The Wolverine are optional, though I highly recommend avoiding X-Men Origins. Bryan Singer's return to the franchise felt surprisingly stale, after the fresh and unique spin applied by Matthew Vaughan in X-Men: First Class, though the usage of the "younger cast" helps considerably in keeping the franchise from feeling as long in the tooth as it actually is. Of course, the stand out cast members are hard pressed to compete with the scene-stealing Evan Peters as Quicksilver and his action sequence definitely stands among the top in the franchise, right up next to the Nightcrawler sequence from X2. The inventive use of camera work and VFX makes for a humorous and lively jailbreak sequence. All in all, I highly recommend this film for fellow film viewers and general audience members alike.

    A welcome return to form for Bryan Singer

    X-Men: First Class was a return to form for the series, hanging critically low in the balance with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, not being the most well liked film, but Matthew Vaughn brought it back with a film filled with a mod look and a lot of (wait for it!) CLASS. The Wolverine was very well done, but Days of Future Past stands as probably one of the best X-Men films, and comic book films in general. I love the mixture of the older and younger versions of most of the characters with an awesome story and some of the most believable time travel elements since Back to the Future. Can't wait for Apocalypse to arrive next year is all I'm saying and you should be equally excited as well! The PQ is of course outstanding being a modern day blockbuster shot on the best digital cameras out there (Arri Alexa), with the natively shot 3D being truly amazing. The 2D image is also amazing, being extremely sharp and detailed, deep colors, and just perfect in every way. The AQ is equally astonishing, being loud and clear, terrific surround sound use and is also perfect in every way. The only low point is the extras, but given how months before this released there was going to be a Rogue Cut with more extras and commentaries, but whats included here is very nice and exclusive to this set. No extras on the 3D disc, but the main disc holds 5 featurettes averaging around 8-10 minutes a piece, deleted scenes with optional Singer commentary, 5 minutes of outtakes, galleries, trailers and a Second-Screen App feauture to run on your phone or tablet. The BBY exclusive holds some exclusive packaging along with a packet of exclusive character cards. Not too shabby, but with the Rogue Cut containing commentaries, documentaries, theatrical cut, and more, that is your best bet. Be noted the Rogue Cut lacks a 3D option, so choose wisely.

    This was one of my favorite marvel movies of 2014 wasn't to comedy just the right set of tone. Days Of Future Past doesn't just mire itself in the toss and tumble of its characters' emotional journeys. Singer throws in a few crackerjack action sequences, opening the film with a heart-stopping massacre that very effectively underscores the dire threat posed by the Sentinels of the future. Crucially, Singer also finds the time and space within the darkest shadows of his story to have a little fun, judiciously tossing quips and sight gags into the mix – particularly in a tour de force prison break sequence, in which the preternaturally speedy Pietro Maximoff (Evan Peters), better known to comic aficionados as Quicksilver, literally runs away with the entire show. Make no mistake about it, this is a behemoth of a film that won't go down well with everybody. Newbies will almost certainly find themselves lost, bewildered, and perhaps even bored. Singer's tale sprawls in so many directions that, if you're not at least marginally invested in the characters, it could prove to be a trying experience. But, for everyone else, ranging from casual fans to enthusiasts and obsessives, Singer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg have crafted something truly remarkable. Steeped in history and lore, both of the cinematic and comic-book variety, Days Of Future Past feels like a dark love letter to the spirit of that original band of mutants and the message of hope, tolerance and humanity that has always accompanied their attempts to find their place on Earth.

    MOVIE RULES, PACKAGING DOESN'T

    XMEN: DOFP is a great and fun "X-Men" movie that thankfully corrects a few of the mistakes the series has made in the past (primarily most, if not all, of X-Men: The Last Stand and ALL of X-Men Origins: Wolverine). It has a great cast lead, as always, by the irreplaceable Hugh Jackman and has awesome special effects. Along with a very easy to follow time travel plot (this is nowhere as mind-bending as say the first time you saw Back to the Future Part II). So the film comes highly recommended. But what does not is BB's exclusive packaging for the 3D version. On the site it looked cool and was priced at the same price most other 3D versions from other retailers was as well. Being a sucker for store exclusive packaging I up and ordered it and was disappointed to not only have the outer box come to me looking worn and torn but also the INSIDE of it looking like it had a few hands touching it. Basically, it looked like a hand me down and did not give me the Brand New feeling. Now, I'm not saying that I got a used copy considering the fact that I got it on release day but BB needs to find better ways to have items shipped to their customers. Especially smaller items like Blu ray movies that come in a cardboard packaging. I kinda wish I just stuck with the regular release that came with the slipcover. But whatever. Next year there will be an extended version that 20th Century Fox will be releasing so I have that one to look forward to. Until then, this is a great movie to enjoy until the newest X-Men adventure comes out in 2016.

    Days of Future Past marks the return of director Bryan Singer to the popular Marvel franchise. DoFP picks up after the end of First Class and continues the story in an effort to further redeem the series after the disastrous X-Men III. For some staunch comic fanatics the changes made from the source material may be a bit of a turn off, but for the average viewer DoFP is an intelligent adaptation of one of the favorite X-Men' story-lines and has some astounding performances by both the new and old cast characters. While the movie itself has garnered world-wide critical acclaim there are many options available when it comes to owning this time-jumping mutant masterpiece. For those skeptical about 3D in general, DoFP benefits from being produced as a 3D feature. Although the 2D version certainly stands well on its own, many of the key battles are brought to life in a masterful and dynamic fashion without resorting to cheesy 3D tricks: in other words, this movie was meant to be experienced in 3D. Perhaps the only thing missing in this package is the Rogue Cut, but as a matter of preference I would opt toward the 3D theatrical cut as the Rogue scenes do little to change the story line and effectively slows and muddles the plot line of an already complex movie. So whether you're a die-hard X-Men fan or just an action movie buff, the 3D version of DoFP offers the best cut in the best format and is an exciting step forward in the storied X-Men franchise.

    Best X-Men in the Series

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This is based on a comic book storyline from the X-Men comic books from somewhere around 1981. It's directed by Bryan Singer-he directed the first two X-Men movies-and I think this film is the best one in the series. It combines both the older and the newer characters by using time travel. The story starts off in the not too distant future, where Sentinels- mutant hunting robots-are eliminating any and all mutants wherever they can find them. The surviving X-Men come up with a plan to send Hugh-Wolverine-into the past, to prevent the building of the Sentinels. It seems that Hugh is the only X-Man that could survive the trip, what with his unique healing factor. Peter-Bolivar Trask-creates the mutant hunting robots in 1973 and Jennifer-Mystique- assassinates him, which causes the speedy production of the Sentinels. Hugh has to jump back in time, get the younger versions of James-Charles Xavier-and Michael-Magneto-to help him find Jennifer and then stop her, before the Sentinels kill the last mutants in the bleak future. There are several new mutants to keep an eye on; Warpath, Blink and Quicksilver are a few and Quicksilver is a real scene stealer. There is also a scene after the end credits which sets up the next X-Men movie; it shows a brief glimpse of the next villain and his name starts with an "A". It's rated "PG-13" for violence, language and has a running time of 2 hours & 11 minutes. I really enjoyed this one and I would buy it on Blu-Ray.

    Okay, I have been a fan of the X-Men for years and have really enjoyed the movies up to this point. So, I have really been wanting to purchase this movie on Blu-ray. I have a brand new 4K Samsung TV and a brand new Sony BDP S6200 Blu-ray player. All of my equipment has been updated. So, I put the regular Blu-ray disc (2d) into the player. The opening sequence with the Fox logo starts playing. Then, a preview of Exodus comes on...picture is great, but NO SOUND. So, I stop the playback and it freezes the Blu-ray player...finally have to completely unplug the player for the disc to be ejected. Well, my thoughts are that it might be just a glitch, but after four more attempts to play, it still did not do anything. I had heard prior to checking this disc that many people had been having problems with the playback, but I was hoping with all the updates I had done that nothing would go wrong. It was to no avail. I am not without my resources, so I turned on my Sony PS3 and the movie started as it should have and everything went well thereafter. However, since the Sony S6200 is an upscaler to 4k and the PS3 was not, I was only able to see the movie in 1080p. Please be aware that this is a problem. Now to the movie. I will say that I enjoyed the storyline in X-Men: Days of Future Past. I came away amazed at the imagery and hope that a new movie is in the works. Other than the original problem I had with the playback, I recommend the movie.

    Days Of Future Past: Epic Story On The Big Screen.

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    In 1981 Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Terry Austin brought "Days Of Future Past" to Uncanny X-Men comic book readers everywhere. This story was in many ways as epic as the Phoenix saga, and is marked by most within comicdom as a defining moment in comic book history. Flash forward to the year 2014, where Bryan Singer explodes this ground breaking story onto the big screen some 33 years later. In the "future" of 2013, mutants and super-powered beings face extinction - almost all have been killed by Sentinels, robots created by humans with the sole purpose of destroying homo-superior beings to ensure the survival of homo-sapiens. A surviving group of mutants seeks to defeat the Sentinels by going back in time to prevent their creation. Kitty Pryde sends Wolverine's mind back 50 years into his younger body to prevent the approaching cataclysm. Can he survive the trip? And if he does, will Wolverine be strong enough to prevent the mutant genocide that is destined to occur? Bryan Singer succeeds wildly in staging and executing this fantastic flight of fantasy that defines the X-Men's canon. The story had already been written, but Singer weaves in numerous tweaks for cinematic effectiveness. The action, cinematography and revised storyline are all top-notch, and a goose-bump inducing pleasure to behold. If you have not seen any of the X-Men movies, now is the time to start - with Days Of Future Past. You're in for a treat!!

    The Box and artwork included are nice touches that compliment the movie and should satisfy those that crave extra content. This version of the movie comes with a nicely published collector's booklet and comes with both the 3-D and Standard Widescreen Versions of the Movie on Blu-Ray Disc in HD 1080P. I personally really like this movie for the story line, actors, acting, and special effects n CGI. I am not here writing a review of the acting or whether it is true to the X-men Marvel Comics multiverse. I am a sci-fi fan but i haven't been cross checking the comics and comparing the script to the comic book adaptation, i think doing that would take a lot of fun out of watching the movie for the first time. All my friends that have watched it on blu-ray with surround sound have walked away with a smile and mentioned that they'd actually like to watch it again to pick up on things they might have missed out on when they stepped outside for a smoke or used the bath room. I give this movie and this format full marks for its value and content, if you don't have 3D then just buy the standard blu-ray and save yourself about $5.00. If u own a 3D HDTV and a 3D capable blu-ray player like the PS3 or any of the numerous sony n samsung dedicated blu-ray multi media players i urge you to take advantage of your hardware and charge up your 3D glasses!

    Xmen Days of Future Past 'Rogue Cut' is is a slightly different (longer) edit of the theatrical release. Though the Rogue Cut is by no means bad, I personally felt the theatrical cut is the better film. It's more focused and concentrates on the central plot points. Rogue Cut adds dialogue between some of the minor characters, and unnecessary dialogue among the lead characters... it doesn't contribute to the main storyline, nor does it really help character development. Also, note that Fox studio has begun re-issuing some recent Bluray releases. The older print (2014/2015) comes with an ITunes digital-HD code, which redeems as 4K/UHD. The newer Bluray release (2018) comes with a MoviesAnywhere digital-HD code -- it only redeems as HD (not 4K/UHD.) If this is important to you, make sure to inspect the back-cover of the Bluray -- if it says "MoviesAnywhere", then it's the newer (less desirable) print.

    I bought X-Men: Days of Future Past when it was first released on Blu Ray and I have to say, I thought it was a good movie. I enjoyed the earlier films more because I felt the cast embodied the characters more. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen feel more like the personifications of Charles Xavier and Magneto than James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender do. My opinion. The fact that this film brought together the original cast with the new, as well as Bryan Singer returning to the director char, was cause for a lot of excitement. At the end I don't think the movie quite lived up to the hype. Still a good movie, just not a great one. When I saw they were releasing The Rogue Cut, my excitement piqued again. I know that Anna Paquin didn't have a lot of time to be on set during filming so her part would be small, and in the theatrical release her role was pretty much just a brief cameo at the end. She maybe had one line. So I was curious to see what unreleased footage they may have shot with her. And while it did expand her part in the film a little bit, really it just felt like nothing more than an extended cameo. So if you've already bought the theatrical release of Days of Future Past, you probably won't get much more out of The Rogue Cut.

    When I first head about this movie, I was very interested in seeing how they would introduce the new characters and mix them with the old ones. As you many of you know, X-Men Days of Future Past embraces the first class and the current ones, even those who remain in the future. The movie was spectacular, 3D was incredible, the direction was great, the movie had your attention the whole time. I really enjoyed it. As being one of those who have read the comics, I can say that I was very satisfied with the adaptation. They sort of adapted the sentinels to be more realistic for a movie, and they did a hell of a job with it. This Exclusive is awesome but I would have loved it even more if it wasn't too big! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the front cover since it's the best I have seen for this movie. I love the extras and the classified files but being honest, I haven't found the time to take a look at them correctly. I'm just happy that Best Buy decided to release this for $22.99. Great price for an incredible set!

    Exciting and Epic

    I was a fan of Bryan Singer's excellent, masterful first two X-Men movies, but was dealt a sucker-punch to the gut with Brett Ratner's stillborn disaster that was "X-Men: The Last Stand." So much so that I couldn't be bothered to continue with any related films after that -- not the two Wolverine flicks, not "First Class." When I learned that Singer was returning to the fold to direct a new X-Men film, I rejoiced. Although he's coughed up some real stinkers lately -- "Superman Returns," "Valkyrie," "Jack the Giant Killer" -- I felt confident that he'd be able to step easily back into form with this series. And he did. WOW...what an exciting, epic and fun movie. Even for someone like me who didn't actually read the X-Men comics when I was a kid or later (thus, not being familiar with the original "Days of Future Past" comics storyline), I had no trouble at all getting into this film's story and becoming engrossed in the action. I was able to follow along easily with which versions of the characters were doing what and where they were. The visuals are jaw-dropping, dare I say almost gorgeous to look at. Everyone in the cast gets their moments to shine. Singer knocked it right out of the park. I'm looking forward to "X-Men: Apocalypse" now.
