Movies You Should Be Watching: ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’
Posted on June 6, 2014
Marvel’s X-Men: Days of Future Past is a lot of things. It is a time-travel saga. It is a near-perfect comic book adaptation. But at its core, X-Men: Days of Future Past is a study on discovering and accepting who you are.
Just like its predecessor X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a sizeable cast, but its main focus is on the dynamic between Xavier, Magneto, and Mystique. Whereas X-Men: First Class explored the subject of accepting oneself (“Mutant and proud!”), X-Men: Days of Future Past takes things to the next level as these three central characters come into their own and are led by what is most important to each of them.
