I’m James Faraci The Last Of The Americans and the views that I’m about to express are that of my own and some of yours. And Welcome back to another edition of “The Different Cuts” (Whistling version “The Lumberjack Song” is heard as Team TLOTA dressed as Lumberjacks see a gigantic piece of film celluloid and James chops it down and the other members cut it to different lengths and on the ends sticking out of the back of the truck the words “The Different Cuts” are seen in differing syllables. Cut to “X-Men Dark Phoenix” Trailer as James does a voiceover)
With “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” having put the final nail in 20th Century Fox’s rights with the X-Men Franchise and the production company and as of this moment 20th Century Fox now being just another soulless subsidiary of the Mouse eared Empire and that is a shame to see a once mighty juggernaut fall to ruin. But what led us to this point? (Cut to James physically)
Well, some say it all went downhill after one of the more particularly good X-Men Movies (Show Opening Title card of “X-Men: Days Of Future Past”, Cut to Clips of the movie as James does a voiceover)
“X-Men: Days Of Future Past” is actually one of the better X-Men movies in recent history. It rewrites certain movies out of continuity, tells the tale from the comic in its own way and was the second half of a necessary evil in Rebooting the venerated franchise. However, from what has been discovered Anna Paquin was supposed to be in the movie, reprising her role as “Rogue”. But for one reason or another Anna was forcibly cut from the movie. Leaving people stunned, however Bryan Singer wasn’t about to let what Anna did lie on the cutting room floor so the same year “Days Of Future Past” came out in theaters “The Rogue Cut” was released on Blu-Ray and DVD and Digital Download giving us the version that was meant to be seen. But does it mean it’s better? (Cut to James Physically)
Let’s find out as we look at both versions of “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” and figure out what the best version of the retelling of the Comic Book Classic.
