MT film critic Corey Hall discusses new 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'


MT film critic Corey Hall was on FOX 2 to talk about X-Men: Days of Future Past. "If you count the spin-offs, the Wolverine movies, this is the seventh movie in the X-Men series, and it shows, because there are a million different mutants in this thing," Hall said. "I mean, they're all over the place, you have to get a scorecard — even a nerd like me, I had to occasionally wonder who some of these guys were."

"And this X-Men stuff, it's been going on since what, 2000? They've made seven movies, it's getting a little convoluted and confusing tying it all together, so they did the easiest thing they could — they did a time travel movie, because those are never confusing," Hall joked,. Nevertheless, Hall said it's a "fun ride" and praised the cast.
