X-Men (2000) – Review

x-men-2000Hello interweb, Nate here!  So I claim to be such a huge X-Men fan and yet I’ve only seen X-Men: Days of Future’s Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, and I believe I’ve only reviewed the later on here.  (I would give it a quick review but that movie was so forgettable I’d have to rewatch it first.)  Hopefully, I’ll be able to watch and review X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: First Class sooner than later but I don’t know when that’ll be so no promises.  With all that out of the way, let’s get to the review!  Also, not sure whether this is necessary for a 17 year old movie, but SPOILER WARNING just to be on the safe side.

X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer Review and Explained

Warning:  All of what I’m about to say may very well be me speculating and theorizing.  So if I say something that contradicts something that is revealed later than that is why.  Also just to be on the safe side I’m just going to say there are possible spoilers below but I highly doubt there’s anything that will ruin the movie if I mention it.

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So sorry about how late this trailer review and explain is but I’ve been drowning in post-Christmas break homework assignments.  Before I begin this, I should briefly comment about 90’cember since I did promise four posts from it and I failed terribly to deliver.  I feel like at this point I might as well just not worry about it and continue on but I did decide to do a Comixplanation on the Death of Superman storyline.  Not sure when I’ll do it since I also need to get my Ant-man review up and there are a couple of other posts I have yet to reveal that I really want to make but I’ll definitely make sure to do Death of Superman since that post seemed to be the most anticipate of the four.  With all that said, time to crack this nut open and see what we find (did that make any sense?).

What is an Antihero?

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So this question has been bugging me for quite some time now: what is an antihero?  Now based upon my understanding of the term, an antihero is a character who does villainous things for good intentions.  The best example is the Punisher who’s main shtick is to go around and kill bad guys.  Killing is obviously a villainous trait and most heroes (such as Spider-man, Batman, and Superman [well, when he’s not being directed by Zack Snyder]) refuse to do it, but since he’s doing it to protect the innocent from murderers and thieves he’s not considered a villain; thus he’s an antihero.  Many character easily fit this description such as Deadpool, Deathstroke (yes he’s usually shown as a villain but because he’s a mercenary he’s willing to help the good guys if they pay him enough.  Which is rare but it has happened before.), Spawn, Catwoman, etc. but there are a few characters that people have described as an antihero that has confused me in the past and that’s what I’m mostly curious about here.
