Do you avoid online shopping because you have to try clothes on in a store to make sure it fits properly? Well, a new website called Sizable features models of all different sizes and shapes and is geared toward helping women find the right fit without having to go to the store.

The site was launched last week and was founded by Melbourne based fashion writer Larissa Thorne, who became frustrated after getting fed up with online shopping. She said, “When shopping online I could be anything from a size eight to a size 12. You look at a model [on a clothes website] who is a size eight and you have no idea if that’s going to fit you or look good on you."
 
This seems like a great idea. Would you like more clothing sites to follow suit?

New survey out says that 1 and 3 Americans have not worn a bathing suit in more than 5 years if ever!

 

According to a new survey, 7% of Americans haven't worn a swimsuit in public in at least FIVE YEARS.

 

20% haven't worn one in public in 10 years.

 

And 5% have NEVER worn one in public.

 

That's one out of three people who haven't worn a bathing suit in public since 2009. 

Why do you think we, as American's have such body image issues? They have social media, they have "The Media" in other countries. What's our hang up?

For the purposes of this review I am going to talk about X-Men Days of Future Past from a NON-comic book reader’s perspective. If you’d like my comic book opinion hit me up on twitter, @JesseRas

First let me start out by answering a couple of questions:

Q: Do you have to have seen ALL of the X-Men movies to understand and enjoy this film?
A: No, the only one you really need to see is X-Men: First Class. Brian Singer does an excellent job of showing you the impact of the first 3 films without making them necessary to watch so if you jumped on the bandwagon with First Class, you’re ok!

Q: Is there an after credits scene and is it worth staying for?
A: Yes there is at the very end but unless you read the comics or have at least seen the 90’s cartoon, you won’t get it.

X-Men Days of Future Past was an epic undertaking because it bridges the original franchise and the reboot together into one almost seamless world. We start off in the future with some impressive mutant/sentinel fight scenes that really pull you in but also let you know that they are paying for the sins of the past in a big way. One thing I was worried about was the time travel aspect of the film. After all Wolverine is being sent back in time to fix a mistake. The “rules” of time travel and the basic plot are spelled out very simply in the beginning and they move on making the rest of the movie easy to follow along with.

There are many familiar faces among the X-men but also several new ones. Most notably is the appearance of Quicksilver. His brief sequence in the movie and comic relief stole the show. The audience at my early screening applauded that scene. Jennifer Lawrence was good. This was not her best acting job although she looked AMAZING and had a lot of action sequences. Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy were phenomenal! The scenes they had together really carried the film.

Overall this is an epic movie and a great way to continue the summer blockbuster momentum started by Godzilla. It’s a fun summer movie that brought all of the fun from the original Bryan Singer X-Men Movies but still managed to keep some of the realism and social commentary brought forth in the X-Men First Class film. I give it a 4.5 out of 5. A must see for the summer.

 

******SPOILER SECTION******
For those wondering if the events in X3 did occur in this movie, the answer is yes. This is touched upon by a couple of flashbacks. They did an excellent job dealing with that mess except THEY NEVER EXPLAIN HOW THE PROFESSOR IS STILL ALIVE! He seemed to die in X3 but here he is alive and well. It’s not a deal breaker for the film but it is a huge plot hole that bugs me. The best part about this movie was that by the end of it, X3 never happened! That abomination of a film has been stricken from the timeline and the world is better for it!
