It's just that it was so blatantly written to retcon The Last Stand but the franchise has always been so lousy about continuity anyway they could have safely pretended it didn't happen and given us something interesting instead

I honestly haven't really liked any of the movies since First Class. I enjoyed Apocalypse because it felt the most "X-Men" to me and was enjoyable to me even if not a good movie. Dark Phoenix just felt like no one wanted to be there.

Weener and I are going to watch the Disney Robin Hood tonight.

It's her first time seeing it. 
I apologize in advance if we become furries because of it.

I never saw it as a kid, just watched it.

I can see why it made so many girls and women so horny. Robin Hood the fox seems very...flexible.

I don't know why everyone in Robin Hood has a southern accent, but I love it

I'm pretty much right there with you.  First Class was amazing.  I enjoyed Days of Future Past also, but it felt like a little bit of a slide back.

 

What were your thoughts on Logan?  I thought it was a legit good film; probably the best comic book movie in terms of objective cinematic validity (acting, writing, etc.)  I'm not terribly familiar with the comics, so I don't know how it did as an adaptation, though I do know it strayed MAJORLY from the source material.

Logan was powerful but also depressing as fuck. I'm glad I saw it but I don't think I'll ever watch it again

I felt that the early Singer movies were 'alright' or as good as we'd get in that era. I didn't see the 3rd one, but 1st class was pretty solid.

The 1st 2 Wolverine movies all looked horrid from a distance, and from what I heard they were. 
That Jackman was able to get them to do a serious one at the end is admirable--I think if the Nolan Batman movies hadn't shown it could work, that wouldn't have happened either.

 

X-Men as a FOX property would have really transitioned well into a Prestige style set of TV shows, ala the Arow-verse.

As a Disney property, we'll it'll be good but predictable melding into the Marvel movie mold.

 

Would the last few xmovies be any good as a guilty pleasure /  so-bad-it's-fun watch?

I went into Apocalypse with what I thought were the lowest possible expectations and still managed to feel disappointed

Went and saw Joker tonight. It was really good despite the director's seemingly desperate attempts to defame the movie with his shitty right-wing rhetoric. Definitely nothing in it that screamed "white dude in Hero's Journey" to me, either, despite the Internet's attempts to defame the movie with bizarre projections of themes that don't actually show up in the movie. I liked it a lot, and the final act was so full of "Yeah! Fuck yeah!" moments, as any good movie with any ties to superhero universes should be.

You don't see me going to ice cream socials and not eating ice cream and socializing.

Saw that Joker jawn. It was actually really solid.

 

The pacing, lighting, and acting were really well done. Plays on emotions and your expectations in a satisfyingly confusing way.

My tiny review is: I didn't want it to end, but it could have used more violence, and more "Joker."
