    definitely very flawed. the paloma faith bit is particularly baaad, and the paul dano bit with the kid. but there's some stuff I quite like, especially sorrentino's music taste.

    X-Men: Days of Future Past

    ★★★★

    Film of the summer? Does what it sets out to do in a supremely gripping and enjoyable fashion striking a perfect balance between its serious and jokey tone, Singer's classic X-Men tone basically. It's entertaining, its funny, it actually has satisfying character development, it has heart and emotion to it, the performances are strong and delightful, McAvoy and Fassbender especially. It actually feels like a comic book film as opposed to ones that pretend they are but just get the tone all wrong (Amazing Spider Man) or just plain depressing and stupid (Man of Steel). So yeah, er see it!
