Rad Recorder is an art and apparel brand assembled by professional nerd artist Vuk Oreb. Fueled by comic books, cartoons, science fiction and spooky stuff. Part nerd, part goth, 110% Rad. This blog delivers fresh and original art, articles and stories, videos and music - all sorts of pop culture stuff. Radness!

Finally saw X-Men: Days of Future Past, here’s my quick review. (Spoiler: It’s good!)

Definitely the best X-Men movie so far, and one of the best comic book adaptations. Better than The Avengers, all Spider-Man movies and any major Hulk movie, and it’s a better action movie than Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which has been heavily praised.

What’s the downside? The fact that it’s more than two hours long and can only feature characters from the X-Men part of the Marvel Universe - it’s too bad that movie licensing is denying fans the possibility of a Spider-Man/X-Men team-up, for example. Another downside is the fact that we’re introduced to Quicksilver, but there’s not enough of him throughout the whole movie. Days of Future Past is just serious enough with its story of a mutant holocaust, offers a very cool twist on time travelling, and respects its comic book origins. Final verdict: fun movie!

First the downsides: 

  • not enough Quicksilver, who owned every scene he was in
  • Wolverine is basically the leader of the X-Men in every X-Men movie, even though it should be Cyclops
  • the movie is more than two hours long
  • due to movie licensing, we only get characters from the X-Men part of the Marvel Universe
  • Toad

Here’s whats good:

  • it’s a comic book movie that presents itself as such
  • plenty of action
  • excellent cast, great leads and supporting characters
  • retro futuristic design of the 1970s done right
  • character development as good as in the comics
  • continuity, plus a twist on time travel worthy of a science fiction film
  • it’s FUN to watch

Rating: 4 out of 5

Ghost Busters trivia! Something I’ve just discovered. Bill Murray and Lorenzo Music traded character roles. Murray was Dr. Peter Venkman in the movies. Music was Venkman in the cartoons. Music was also the voice of cartoon Garlfield. Murray was the voice of live action (okay, CGI) Garfield. So, both of them were Dr. Peter Venkman and Garfield. Music wasn’t the only voice of Venkman, and was replaced by Dave Coulier, a.k.a. Uncle Joey from Full House, in the cartoon’s later seasons.
