X-Men: First Class was the first X-Men movie that I loved. The original trilogy started strong, then crashed and burned in the final third. And the less said about X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the better. 329 more words

X-Men: Apocalypse knows exactly what it's doing in a return to its comic book roots — but is it for the best?
