X-Men Franchise Ranked
SO i prefer the X-Men to the MCU except for say Guardians of the Galaxy, but overall, i prefer them, they are my favorite Marvel comic, i think they had Marvel's best cartoon, so here is my ranking of the films!
1. First Class
I think this is a perfect prequel, i loved the 60s vibe, i love Michael Fassbender as Magneo, i loved Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, i loved the whole cast. It had the best action, the funniest moments, and genuine scenes that make you geek out(Magneto killing the Nazis!!)
2. X Men United
I think this is the traditional thought of the sequel being superior to the original, it is an all around great film, not just a great comic film but a great film in general, Pyro was the shit!
3. X Men
In my opinion modern comic films can be traced back to 1998 with Blade, sure we had Superman & Batman but the sequels ruined comics, Blade opened the door, so Marvel was hot, so why not make a well known comic into a film, enter the X Men, this film did more than Spider Man in my opinion, plus it is the franchise to last 16 years!
4, Days of Future Past
This one helped erase Wolverine Origins and Last Stand, and it was a fucking hell of a great film, there is alot to love about this flick, it combines both casts plus it lets you have a fresh start & clean slate....which leads me to some nit picks. The "prequel series" suffers from the fact that we all know who lives at the end of the film, that plus, i wanted a legit sequel to First Class.
The fastest paced and possibly funnest chapter in the series. I can't wait for the sequels.
6. The Wolverine
Highly underrated flick, Wolverine just needed to be R, let him be Wolverine. Plus the stinger was one of the best in comic films in my opinion!
Now we get to the bad
Ugh, so wanted to love this film, it bored the fuck out of me. I like the stinger, i love the stuff with Magneto, same with Quicksilver, they stole the show in every scene. I didn't want to punch Cyclops in the face(i hate the character), i am glad Jubilee wasn't used much, the "Weapon X" scene was cool but the scene was a tad forced, other than that, i hated it, if you saw it, then you might get why i want to watch Nightmare on Elm ST flicks.
8. Last Stand
Let's just erase this flick...oh that happened? Cool!
9. Wolverine Origins
Hey atleast the opening credits were cool!
