Flatliners is a remarkable film. Specifically, it’s remarkable in that it takes an intriguing and ripe concept and does almost nothing with it. Instead, it fulfills the promise of its title by offering up a boring, lifeless story, fills it with dull, unsympathetic characters, and then keeps the thrills to an absolute…

Bryan Singer has just announced three more cast members for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and they are three very familiar faces. More and more, it seems that Days of Future Past is going to link X-Men: The First Class with the previous X-Men trilogy and its actors.
