X-Men: First Class
6 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I have to say, I enjoyed every moment of this movie. It more than delivered on every level of satisfaction, and could be looked upon as one of the best comic book adaptions in movie history. The acting is phenomenal, especially Fassbender, with a nod to McAvoy as well. It doesn't need big explosions or fight sequences to provide entertainment like other summer blockbusters, and creates a captivating story that you want to come back to. I am already stoked for another installment in this series, and where it will go through comic book history.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

To begin, I had my biased opinion out of the gates not being a fan of the franchise. If you love these movies, you will probably enjoy it for what it is. The other people I was with said it was a decent enough film, but in my opinion, it fell short along with all of its predecessors. The charm that was found in many of the characters of the first film has long since disappeared, and the new additions to the cast with Cruz and McShane add little to the formula. Some of the fight scenes did prove entertaining and engaging, but are used up too quickly in the beginning of the story. If you enjoy a mindless time out to the local theatre with a $15 price tag, this might be your movie. If you prefer something with a little more story, originality, or some sort of creativity, take a pass on this one.
