X-Men: Apocalypse – The Road to Dark Phoenix

X-Men: Apocalypse may not be the satisfying third film in the series that one would like but it certainly does the job here. After being teased during a post-credits scene, we meet En Sabah Nur (Oscar Isaac) aka Apocalypse just before the transference.  The next thing we know, it’s 1983 and Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne) awakens the sleeping mutant.  This also launches an earthquake felt across the globe.  At the same time, Mystique frees Kurt…

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Road to Dark Phoenix

X-Men: Days of Future Past is certainly one of the best films in the entire X-Men series and unites both the new and old casts with stakes on the line. After being set up in The Wolverine, the action starts in 2023.  By this point, the elder Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Erik Lehnsherr (Ian McKellan) have gotten over their differences.  The two of them are working together in order to save both mutants and…

X-Men: The Last Stand- The Road to Dark Phoenix

X-Men: The Last Stand is practically non-existent and we owe our thanks to the ret-con provided in X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s a shame that Scott Summers/Cyclops (James Marsden) gets the shaft.  Is this because Marsden decided to join Superman Returns?  Maybe.  Nobody could blame him for doing so with Bryan Singer helming the other film.  With Cyclops gone, both Storm (Halle Berry) and Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) take on an increase in leadership.  Wolverine…

X2: X-Men United – The Road to Dark Phoenix

X2: X-Men United is the comic book adaptation that set the benchmark for all comic book films until The Dark Knight came calling five years later. After Alkali Lake was teased at the end of X-Men, the setting plays a larger focus in the sequel.  It’s the base for Col. William Stryker (Brian Cox), who happens to take on a more villainous role than Magneto (Ian McKelllan).  Stryker is no fan of mutants and lets…

After a mission to find proof of the Loch Ness monster goes spectacularly awful, Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) finds himself on a new quest.  This one comes as a response to a letter from someone.  This someone believes that they know where to find the Sasquatch.  Or as we otherwise know them:…
