First Trailer is out.  What do you think?  I'm apprehensive.

I'm not sure I'm 'anything' yet, to be honest. Most X-men movies are just bang up between powered people with a little bit of story to them. Oh, I enjoy them! Hopefully this one just entertains the hell out of me. Smiley

Yeah, looks good, but didn't they all? Haha, that sounded way more down than I really am on this, as I am really looking forward to seeing AND liking this. At least as much as I have all the reboot X movies (the past two).

Heard something on yet another podcast that does make me wonder however ...

"How is it, if Apocalypse is so damn powerful, he got beat down before the X-Men came around? If he was all powerful first mutant, how did he lose before now?"

Did they ever mention that in the comics?

I quite liked it!! Smiley

It wasn't perfect; characterization got a bit skimpy towards the end, and the needless continued super-owered disaster porn went on a bit too long, but I enjoyed all the small moments of the characters I got, and the movie certainly never stopped to dwell too long things.

I was never bored during it, always interested in what was occurring, and highly want to see this X-men team come together again and have more adventures!!

Cool, but this is not the movie I have been waiting for to get your thoughts on. You seen Civil War yet?  Smiley

Finally saw this movie.

It was ... better than "Okay", but I am going to fall short in thinking that it was "Good". No, I enjoyed it, so it that regard it was good, but it wasn't an overly good movie. Haha, I am talking in circles I know. It is no X-Men 3, so hey, winner!!
 Grin

In a small bit of nit-picking, I hated
Angel's hair cut, especially beside Storm. It made it seem like ole Apocalypse had a hair style fetish "I SHALL LEAD YOU INTO A NEW WORLD, but only if you cut your hair so you have a Mohawk. K? Thanx".
Actually, I hated they way they handled Angel all together, but eh, it wasn't he that made the movie less than what I wanted, though I can't put my finger on what did lessen its impact on me

But again, enjoyable, overall, but just short of good.

I liked the part when the student...

got to see Return of the Jedi and come out saying "The third movie is always the worst."  Especially considering this is the third movie in the reboot.   Cheesy

That is funny, though I think, while filming, it was suppose to be a jab at the original X-Men films and its third, but yeah, funny how that worked out, huh?
