'Jack the Giant Killer' follows the trend of taking old stories to new heights

Even before watching the trailer for Jack the Giant Killer, I had a feeling I knew what I was in for. The title easily gave it away, but the change isn’t unexpected. After all, “Jack and the Beanstalk” doesn’t exactly pack as big of a punch as Jack the Giant Killer. While it’s not another Snow White, it is another fairytale remake, which I’ve been a bit sceptical about lately. That’s not to say that every remake is or isn’t doing it right, but I’m starting to warm-up to all these revamped films. I’ll be honest—I rather like seeing the stories we’re so familiar with spiced up with new technology or told with an interesting twist.

Good casting! Michael Fassbender may play young Magneto in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

I am so happy Brian Singer is back in charge of the X-Men franchise. Without him, X-Men: The Last Stand was a disappointment, and don't even get me started on Wolverine, which is one of last year's worst movies. I don't know how people could like that movie. The new film is tackling the origins of the X-Men, something the ill-fated Magneto movie was going to do before its cancellation in favor of more Wolverine movies. 

Michael Fassbender is in negotiations to play a young Magneto, according to the Coventry Telegraph. He'll star alongside James McAvoy, who plays the young Professor X. It's a great casting move. Fassbender is the only bright spot in this week's disastrous Jonah Hex movie. He also looked like the only person having fun with his role. You may remember Fassbender from his roles in 300, Inglourious Basterds, and Band of Brothers. He's a talented guy, and his star seems to be on the rise. Though he's no Ian McKellen, he has the hurt to make a good Erik Lehsnherr. Here's a clip of him from the movie Hunger.
