So now that this abomination has come out, how would you rank the X-Men movies?

It has Fassbender and Mcavoy, Those alone should make it better than Origins. If it's really that bad I feel sorry for that 2 hours of your life, man.

McAvoy had one of the best scenes in the movie. As far Fassbender... it was an awkward rehash of his prior arcs and a poor use of his talent. Even the best of actors can't work with a garbage script.

Wait a sec... DP is worse than Origins? How can anything be worse than Origins?

Honestly I'd... rather watch Origins. Least it has a plot. And arcs.

Dark Phoenix is... just a mess.

I like your list! The first two films are also my favourites. 🌻

I have to say, I agree with you about Lawrence's Mystique. She does not feel like Mystique to me at all, I just see Jennifer, even through all the blue make-up (which she is rarely in). She seems bored and like she does not want to be there. I feel like they cast her just because she was a big star at the time and she would bring in money.

That's the funny thing. First Class came out before Jennifer Lawrence was big (it was a year before Hunger Games). I don't know why she was chosen because she wasn't a big name before Hunger Games. in fact, she was stuck in her 3-movie contract for First Class, DoFP, and Apocalypse and was underpaid in all 3 movies.

I take it you saw Dark Phoenix. Sorry for your loss.

I did. I saw it with my friend and we treated it like a legit comedy.

I am surprised that you put The Empire Strikes Back in second position instead of in first position.

I acknowledge Empire is a better film. I can't stand the Tatooine portions of VI. But I like VI more; just can't explain it.

Great list! While I do almost fully agree, I have to say, you come off as very harsh against Rogue One. While I understand what you are saying, I thought the flow of the movie and the feelings I got from it made it excellent. While it wasn't a movie I asked for, it's a movie I'm incredibly pleased to have come out.

Sure, but it solely exists as fan service. It's a story that did not need telling; there wasn't some mystery. The people of Rogue One didn't go on to do anything - they just died. And, for the most part, they came from nothing.

It's certainly enjoyable, but I just can't help but see it as hallow.

I basically skimmed this, but I agree with what I read.

Agreed. Batman was too busy being... um... comedic relief? I want a competent Batman.

@smoothjammin:

Honestly, this list is rather outdated. The Secret Six would definitely be in here.
