5 out of 5 🐙


Bryan Singer’s triumphant return. Yes, he directed X-Men: Apocalypse and Superman Returns. But I’ll put his excellent comic book movies up against anyones. I don’t even like time travel and this movie handled it so well that I actually enjoyed it. It’s one of the most famous and twisted and beloved storylines in X-Men comic canon. And Singer turned it into the best X-movie to date. Yes, he had heavy hitters doing the acting but the annals of cinema history are littered with killer casts who got led astray. Not here. The future is now.







(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
