Reviewer Michael Moran paints an intriguing picture of this one: The look of the film is luscious. The effects are quite brilliant. There are one or sequences that set the bar pretty high for anyone who might be, for example, making a Star Wars movie in the next year or two. This is, in my book, a better movie than the first Thor film.

The Battle Of The Atom, the current X-Men crossover celebrating fifty years of the comic, has run a number of homages to the history of the comic. At its heart is the most legendary of comics Days Of Future Past, both in its use of time travel and the actions of Mystique’s son similar to those of Mastermind in the original. And by having both X-Men from the past and the future, it’s given the impression that X-Men will continue at least for another fifty years.
