X-Men: Days of Future Past: Director Bryan Singer returns to helm the franchise tackling the eternal time travel quagmire of altering history by preventing a past event. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) travels back to the time of waterbeds, lava lamps, and long hair to prevent Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) from completing an assassination.

Switching between past and future with an above reproach deftness, Singer introduces numerous mutants from the universe (including Quicksilver and a reference to Emma Frost) as they wage an onslaught on the White House lawn. CGI impeccable stunning awesomeness on a comedic stop time slow motion repositioning of characters and weapons and a "wow" upper deck from a stadium.  There are the expected lapses in logic, so nerds enjoy and realists will expound numerous "I can't believe it." Intimate characterization essential in one of the best entries in the continuing series.
