And, lo, there was yet another X-Men film. Hopefully not one too disappointing.



I believe I'm now legally obligated to see this movie.  I'm not even sure I'm happy it exists, but I suppose I'll be catching a matinee at some point.

I kind of feel the way about X-Men movies the way I do about X-Men comics.  It's how I got into comics, but I kind of lost interest at some point, but I'd be sad if they went away.  Also, too much Wolverine.

Is this an accurate depiction of Apocalypse? I mean, he looks sort of the same, but I remember the backstory being different...

So, since we stopped keeping up with X-Men in 1992 or so, they've made some changes. Apocalypse was given this sprawling Egyptian back story at some point that I learned about when I was watching the cartoon in college. I guess it's more or less accurate. Part of my flicker of interest in the X-films is that I have this very strong X-knowledge right up to 1992, and then... not so much. So there are always surprises when i watch the movies. I don't do a lot of "who is THAT guy?" when I watch The Flash or a Batman movie.

At some point I'll probably watch it at home. Can't imagine running out to the theater to see it. If only the kid was into super hero movies.

I liked the last two X-Men movies A LOT. This one has Olivia Munn in it. That is all.

I liked the last two as well, but I never anticipate them. I just realize there's a new X-movie out, look at Jamie and say "Hey, wanna see the new X-Men?" and she thinks about James McAvoy and Fassbender in one movie, and I have a movie buddy. I'm a Patrick Stewart man myself.
