At the Movies Episode 43: X-Men: Days of Future Past

Director Bryan Singer returns to the X-Men franchise with X-Men: Days of Future Past. With the bar for comic book movies raised in recent years, can Marvel’s Merry Mutants reach the top again? The guys talk spoiler-free for a while, then put up a spoiler wall for those of you who want to stay clean.

And what’s cool this week? Once again, Kenny is a fan of the mobile card game Lies of Astaroth, Jason is bummed out by the cancellation of Revolution, and Blake was impressed with the conclusion to Forever Evil.
