My Brief Thoughts on X-Men
Thoughts: I have reviewed X-Men movies plenty of times through the years. It has become a staple of the site; I enjoy all of them without question despite how others feel about them. I have wanted to re-watch them slowly through the years. This first chapter in the franchise does bring forward the question of how to maintain mutants in society, so they don’t cause damage to anyone. It deserves credit for being one of the films that helped bring comic book movies back to the serious stage. After Batman & Robin nearly took them all away from everyone.
