    Also, as the finale for a 19-year franchise, it's a must-see. (Sure, there's The New Mutants, but that's so separate, if it even comes out.)

    I've seen every X-Men movie in theaters, not going to change that now. Sucks that it's getting scorched on RT though.

    Also a friend of mine went to the premiere Hollywood last night. She casually took a Snapchat photo with James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence lol.

    This isn't a shock by any means. The early screenings last year got slammed. They went back and literally reshot entire scenes and added new sequences. That's never a good sign.

    Yeah. It's a bummer that the X-Men legacy under Kinberg will be that of missing more than it hit.

    I guess that I must not be as critical as most people. I just got home from watching Dark Phoenix and honestly don't know why it is rated so low. I'm not blind so I know it's not a great work of art or anything but 22%! It's not that bad. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is by far the worst of the X-Men movies and its has a 37. Maybe the recent Avengers movie spoiled these guys or something.

    Edit: The audience score is 67% so maybe it's just the critics. This seems to be the biggest difference in scores between all the X-Men movies.

    Sounds like if Fox would have followed the plan that the director of First Class had then this would have turned out better.

    The article exaggerates the impact but there are still good points to it.

    Yes the screenings went poorly and they decided to reshoot but apparently a lot of the movie was refilmed so it didn't end like Captain Marvel (woman with fiery superpowers destroying an alien fleet.)

    If they would have put it out first without the reshoots, I wonder what (if anything) Marvel would have done to Captain Marvel.

    Yes, I don't understand all the dislike. I loved it. Great acting, amazing score, awesome display of powers, Phoenix being Phoenix and glorious. Emotional. One of the best of the franchise for me.

    I'm almost certainly going to see this eventually, but I can't say that I'm excited for it. Apocalypse was a train wreck and the trailers for this didn't look much better. There seems to be this narrative going around that the X-Men movies are mostly bad with a few times they got lucky. I really don't understand that though. To me it's the other way around they are mostly good (or passable) with a few times where they completely missed the mark. X3, Wolverine Origins (or whatever it's called) and Apocalypse are all pretty bad. X-Men, X2, The Wolverine, Logan, First Class, and Days of Future Past were all good or at least passable (in my opinion).

    It is not amazing. It could have been if they had played the long game that Vaughn wanted. That was to introduce her in his proposed movie after First Class where they fight Magneto over assassinating Kennedy, get to know her more and build her powers up in Days of Future Past that was suppose to be the third movie instead of Apocalypse, and then make her go dark in this movie. I liked First Class and loved Days of Future Past which were both mainly his scripts. He walked because Fox decided they didn't like his second movie as much as Days of Future Past and skipped to it (This is all in the first article I posted up the thread a bit.)

    It was still decent and worth the watch. I particularly liked the train fight even if the villains are a little bland.

    I saw Dark Phoenix over the weekend. Honestly I didn't think it was bad. It was a big improvement over Apocalypse, but over all it was average. Nothing special, nothing terrible either. The biggest problem is that outside of one emotional thing, the rest weren't earned as the story focuses around Scott / Jean and Jean / Charles's relationships but the characters haven't really been around long enough for us to care. Had Scott and Jean been in the movies since First Class it might have been a different story, but they were introduced in Apocalypse and the story beats wanted us to care about them like they've been there from the start.

    I haven't seen the film yet, but I get the impression Fox was banking that our familiarity with Jean and Scott's long standing relationship in the comics would translate over to the silver screen and lend the proceedings some credence. Unfortunately for them it didn't pan out that way.
