HBO has the 2014 film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, at 5:40. Generally positive reviews for the latest installment of the series with The Washington Post writing, “The new “X-Men,” directed by Bryan Singer from a script by Simon Kinberg, feels urgently important while it’s happening and thoroughly satisfying once it’s over. That’s my definition of a really good time.” Here are the rest of the reviews.
