Today a viral video teaser for the up coming X-Men: Days OF Future Past was released. Take a look Poppers.
The film will be based on the comic book storyline “Days of Future Past,” which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel’s mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.

Hey Poppers and welcome back to Movie Monday.
One of the things I love about the net and YouTube is finding gems in the sand of the internet beach.
PostHuman is one of those. Directed by Cole Drumb. Produced by Jennifer Wai-Yin Luk and starring the voice of Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica). Production company: Colliculi Productions
Animation studio: Humouring The Fates
“Set in an adrenalized future of espionage, assassins, and out of control super science, PostHuman follows a genius hacker and his dog as they help an enigmatic young woman to free the remaining test subject of a black ops ESP test lab.”

If you watch any Japanese anime you will recognize the style right away. This short is well crafted and beautiful. I got more involved in this short piece that most of the movies I saw this summer. The short has won many awards and it is well deserved.
So sit back and enjoy. If you like this short film hit it up with a like on YouTube.
If you have not had a chance to see this music video by The DoubleClicks. This video has a bunch of real nerd girls and some nerd guys showing signs of there proud nerd back grounds. Also of being not excepted because of being female. I am amazed how even in the world of nerds, geeks and dweebs that there is still a form a bigotry. You think that as a group of people ostracized by most of society that we would be some what more understanding. This video shows that we still find someone in our own culture to pick on.
A few hours ago I visited my local theater to see “The Wolverine” and I was not disappointed at all. The movie is superior to the 2009 “X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I like that movie but “The Wolverine” just told a better story and the acting was so much better. Hugh Jackman has to act more in this film and shows it. The cast of supporting actors are also great. Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Rila Fukushima as Yokio, Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen and Svelana Khodchenkova as Viper are all good.
Now I guess you like to know some of the story. Ok here’s a little of it.
Wolverine is now camping out in the woods hiding away trying to run away from who he trully is, a soldier. The death of Jean Grey, seen in his dreams portrayed once again by Framke Janssen still haunts him. Back in WW2 while a prisoner at a Japanese prisoner camp on the out skirts of Hiroshima Logan saves a Japanese soldier from the nuclear bomb dropped on that city. Many years later that same solider sends Mariko to find Logan to say thank you for saving his live.
Well that ain’t all???
The soilder, ( Hal Yamanouchi) offers Logan a chance at a natural death in return for his healling powers. Well Logan refuses and from there the story starts to move along. Ok here’s where I don’t tell you anymore. Well except that the action sequences are good but I am sure that for any young male out there they may find there is not enough. I enjoyed hearing the character talk more that saying a few lines and then the shit hits the fan.
So if you were hoping that I tell you more about the story well to bad. You need to be a little surprised by some of the movie. Oh make sure you stay put at the end. Like many of the Marvel movies there is a little something at the end well worth sticking around for.
So in the end is “The Wolverine” worth you money, hell yeah. I think you will enjoy it.
I give “The Wolverine” 4 claws out of 5.
