Theatrical Releases: Alice Through The Looking Glass & X-Men: Apocalypse

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE || May 27th, 2016

AliceThroughTheLookingGlass-poster ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS || Lacking any real excitement and following a convoluted plot that basically feels like it meant nothing by the end of it, the sequel to “Alice In Wonderland” does provide the original cast, with Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter, and even Alan Rickman’s voice work, but they all look tired. Sacha Baron Cohen adds a small bit of uniqueness to a film that otherwise feels exactly the same as the first.
XMenApocalypse-poster X-MEN: APOCALYPSE || The X-Men face their biggest villain yet, who also happens to be what is likely the first mutant to ever live, Apocalypse. Thinking he’s a god and that people are following false prophets, his looks to take back control. The new young cast do a decent job, with Tye Sheridan (“Mud”) being the best of these, while Sophie Turner (“Game Of Thrones”) leaves some room for improvement. The film unfortunately squanders several of its best actors, including Michael Fassbender, with a paper-thin storyline and Jennifer Lawrence, who just seems tired. Oscar Isaac as the villain also seems like a waste, as he’s covered in so much make-up, it could literally be anyone.
