X-Men: First ClassI saw it recently and I wanted to share my thoughts about the movie. I enjoyed it a lot, and I liked it more than the original trilogy. The cast was excellent, a lot of familiar faces will pop up.

Michael Fassbender was perfect for the role of Erik Lehnsherr (aka. Magneto), I liked his performance the most. It was also great to see familiar characters in an earlier phase. Although the story bares no resemblance to its comic origins, it was entertaining and a great adaptation. People usually criticize these types of movies because the story is different and such, an adaptation will never be the same as the original thing they’re adapting it from.

It’s a great summer movie, and I like that they weren’t over the top like X-Men: The Last Stand was. Great cast, decent story and acting. I recommend it.

I have always been a fan of the filmography world. It’s exciting, dynamic and full of surprises. Also, having a boyfriend that has a projected career path in film helps me be better informed about that world. It’s definitely something to research and read about, there’s always something new or very interesting techniques you didn’t know about. One day Juan suggested I should watch a short film he had watched recently and loved, called Your Lucky Day. This was a 16 minute short film directed by Dan Brown and it was shown at the SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival). The principal cast of this short film: Rider Strong (You’ve seen him in “Cabin Fever” and “Boy Meets World”), Phil Davidson, Lynn Shelton, Sean Nelson, Tony Doupe and Pisay Pao. The plot of this film:

A megaball drawing sends a convenience store spiraling out of control.

I watched that, and loved it instantly. The filmography was very well done, it has the quality of a full-featured film. The time frame used for this film was perfect, you never look at the clock and say “This is too long” or “This is too short”. The 16 minutes were used flawlessly. The theme used has been done several times, but it felt unique. The way things transitioned made the experience completely different. The actors did a great job portraying those characters, I will definitely look forward to Dan Brown’s future work.

Did you watch “Your Lucky Day”? Did you like it?
