Anyone else see this? It's definitely the best X-Men movie that has been made and I think it's probably the best "super" super hero film in recent memory. It at least deserves its own thread.

The selection of characters was great. Several of them were more recent creations like Azazel and Darwin, but they fit into the early period of the X-Men as well as Prof. X and Magneto did. Kevin Bacon was also pretty awesome as his role as the lead villain, Sebastian Shaw.

What did ya'all think?

Can't really agree. Without implying in any way that it's a bad movie it is definitely my least favorite of the series. Can't really give my reasons though without spoiling.

yeah i don't think you can top fucking up that badly on (a) Juggernaut or (b) Deadpool, so there's gotta be at least two movies worse

Ahhhhh I see. Comic book guys.

I have to admit that if I had already known these characters from marvel and they screwed them up in the movie then I would certainly have a different perspective. Being unburdened with any preconceived notions on what any of the characters should or shouldn't be put X3 higher on my list. What bothered me the most about First Class was actually a plot discrepancy between it and X3 but maybe X3 was the movie with the problem. I look forward to seeing if anyone else notices it and possibly finding out what the correct sequence of events should have been after everyone has a chance to see it.

Not really sure where that's coming from or why I would be surprised. It was just an "ohhhhhh that's why they hate what's probably my favorite X-men movie... different perspective" and a nod that in your shoes I'm sure I'd feel the same. I really don't get how my validating both points of view can be taken negatively.

I don't read x-men comics. The movies have all just sucked at increasing levels until this one.

PS Did you think prof. X road around in a wheelchair in x-men, x2 and x3 just for laughs?

Excellent point. I'm sure that's exactly how it will be resolved in X-men-X The Final X-planation.

Thanks Wikipedia.

In those movies the walking professor is inside someones mind. When he goes into someones mind he is not limited by his physical handicaps.

Please feel free to figure it out for me. I still like the Skrull theory.

maybe first class is intended as a reboot/separate continuity from the other movies

Yeah that's what I was leaning toward when I said maybe X3 was the one with the problem and I look forward to knowing what the correct sequence of events was supposed to be.
At that point I hadn't even remembered that he was also walking around on Three Mile Island.



Anyway... Other than that it was for me a pretty good movie

It looks better than all the previous xmen movies, although that isn't hard to do. But it has a director for once that isn't shit too.

All film reviews should be brief and rhyme just like that.

This movie was great right up to the end where a plot hole developed I couldn't defend.
