    Saw the movie last night.

    Storm would get it all day.

    Did you get a small commercial right before the movie featuring the Storm actress(Alex Shipp) telling you that the crew worked hard and to enjoy the movie?

    Didn't really have interest in this movie, but I might get out to see it tomorrow now that it's out. From you guys' experience, if I liked Days of Future Past, will I like this?

    Apoc was really bad. Who the hell told this guy that he was supposed start off speaking in a low pedophile like voice and then go into yelling with autotune? Every dialogue he had was him screaming about nonsense. Why can't Singer think of a better way to portray Apoc instead of the generic "i awoke from my sleep, i will yell to everybody how i will destroy the world, and then get my ass kicked by teen amateurs".

    I agree with Dangerous J on the whole "Hero/Mentor" worship the X-kids did on Mystique. That was really silly and it's one of the things that will really bug the hell out of you through out the movie, especially if you grew up with the X-men like i did during the 90's. I think this factor, along with how silly and lame apoc was is the reason why I have to put BvS over this. BvS just got me bored but this movie got me seriously pissed off, bored, and exhausted (the whole CG orgy at the end was just too much to watch). Mystique had so much boring scenes as well, she just ran around nagging and recruiting mutants.

    Civil War 9/10
    Deadpool 8.5/10
    XMA 7.5
    BatmanVSupes 6/10

    For me:

    #1- Deadpool 10/10- They couldn't have done it any better.

    #2- Civil War 9.5/10- Awesome all-around.

    #3- X-Men Apocalypse 7/10- Had problems but, still good where it counts.

    #4- Batman Vs Superman 4/10- Mess of a movie. Spider-Man 3 all over again. Tried to cram in too much, pissed away potential for future movies with these stories done right, etc, etc. Had some cool scenes for sure but, those handful of moments didn't make up for the rest of it. DC should be embarrassed that their would-be, flagship franchise-builder, turned out this sloppy.

    If you liked past X-Men movies, and are especially an X-Men fan, you'll like this movie i believe. Where you'll rank it among previous movies? I dunno.

    Days of Future Past was definitely better though.

    If you count teen Cyke, he also almost got it on with X-23 (who's canonically prettier than Jean).

    Jennifer Lawrence definetly needs to give this franchise a rest. The trailers already gave us a sneak peek on how annoyingly self-entitled she would be, and the movie itself pretty much drove the point home with a sledgehammer. Her attempts to hog the spotlight are just laughable. Her obvious ploys to avoid the blue body makeup is as subtle as a hippo dancing ballet in a room full of fine china. Rebecca Romjin had no trouble at all being in full character paint in 95% of her scenes in the original trilogy, why does J Law get a pass?

    Her character is also annoying as shit? Why is she viewed as a heroine? She might have stopped Mags in DOFP, sure, but she was about to undo all that by killing Trask, needing Xavier to talk her out of it. Then all she does in this movie is be preachy and not even doing anything useful.

    AXE HER NOW

    Eh, it goes higher up than writing. The writing is being influenced by the likely edict of giving JLaw top billing and basically revolving the franchise around her. As much as we all want her to go away, Fox is probably on bended knee offering her a blank check begging her to stay.

    JLaw has a huge ego and is essentially impossible to work with, she thought doning the blue would hurt her marketability.

    "In this hilarious video from MTV, each of the young mutants from "X-Men: Apocalypse" share what's been bothering them at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters."




    Why "X-Men: Apocalypse" Changed Nightcrawler's Look

    "One thing I wanted to bring to the character that wasn't in the original Nightcrawler makeup from was, if you look at the comic books, he looks feline in the way that he stands and with his tail and yellow eyes and the way the ears are shaped," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. "That wasn't an obvious feature in the original interpretation."

    Morot also said they had to change the color of Nightcrawler's skin from "X2." "Alan was a gray-black in the original movie, and they had a problem lighting him," he said. "So we had to make sure Nightcrawler's look was camera-friendly. But they didn't want him to look painted. So we had to come up with a skin that was not the same as the other blue characters; he had to look somewhat different."

    Another significant change: In "X2," Nightcrawler's tail couldn't move, but for "Apocalypse" Morot designed a LEGO-like 6-foot flexible appendage for Smit-McPhee.

    The main problem with Batman v Superman is that is not loyal at all to the characters or the message these characters have always been supposed to represent. Batman's a complete douche and Superman is puny Jesus; don't even get me started with the terrible Luthor they created...

    Deadpool, Civil War, X-Men... they might have flaws, but the characters and the messages are at least there...

    Well, that and she just thinks things should always go her way and that unless she's getting like Robert Downey Jr. money/billing/credit, she's being discriminated against since she's pretty much an SJW. And it's like sorry, but you are nowhere near Robert Downey Jr.

    She also has an Oscar, which pretty much gives her Hollywood street cred and leverage everywhere.

    I disagree only because you used SJW.

    OT but where did it come from that being a social justice warrior is an insult to people......fighting for social justice???

    Shit don't even make sense. Same thing with people using politically correct wrong. Someone isn't PC just because they don't want people to be disgusting assholes.

    I just saw it. It was okay. I enjoyed it for the most part. It's not as good as First Class and DOFP. It's much better than Batman V Superman. Although that movie was a shit show, that isn't saying much. Side note: I have yet to see Michael Fassbender be bad in anything. Dude is godlike.

    This reminded me that he was in the awful Jonah Hex movie and was the only part of that movie worth watching.

    Yeah, but by that logic, every single person/band in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame has super cred in the rock industry despite a ton of them being nowhere close to rock acts, lol.

    - Not a fan of Prof X getting wasted on the psychic plane by Apoc
    I didn't like that either. Ever since I saw the trailer I knew there was going to be an Astral Plane battle, but I wasn't expecting Xavier to get BTFO. I thought it was going to be a team effort of Xavier beating him up on the Astral Plane while everybody else beat him up physically.
    - Not a big fan of Sinister because he never fights. He's just a biochemist who plans shit and escapes.
    When I saw that Apocalypse was asleep and buried since ancient Egypt until the 80s, I figured that left no room for him to wake up in the 1800s to turn Nathaniel Essex into Sinister. Then the after credits happened and I soiled myself. Thinking more about it, the Morlocks and Sinister were introduced in this movie and Gambit will be getting a movie too. That doesn't sound good for the Morlocks.

    With a 3-day holiday weekend in its corner, X-Men: Apocalypse will only earn $65 million domestically [$78 million across 4-days]. That's a disappointing figure when compared to Batman v Superman's $166 million and Captain America: Civil War's $179.1 million. This figure is also way down from Days of Future Past's $110.6 million opening weekend gross.[/b]
    LOL, the X-Men franchise never aspired to earn as much as the MCU or Batman movies.
