  1. You have obviously given it much thought. I think we watched the X-Men franchise for all the other reasons but its good to know why some seemed to miss the mark. Dead pool, you nailed it. Cheers,H

  2. I actually haven’t seen any of the Wolverine movies, but besides them, I would agree with this list entirely. I wouldn’t give Apocalypse that low of a rating, but in the list, that’s still where I would put it.

    I rarely agree with anybody’s list of things, but this time, yup. 100% agreed.

    Great Post!
    Check out my new post about Logan 🙂 feel free to follow and leave a comment

  4. Its funny how similar everyone’s list are when talking about the X-Men movies

  5. Personally, I prefer the original and “X2” above any of the new films (“Deadpool” included). But I definitely agree with your bottom two. “The Last Stand” totally killed this film franchise for me.

  6. Great list!

    Only thing I would change would be to move First Class down a few spots. It’s a great film on its own merits, but I can’t get over how wrong it is from the comic book canon.

      I hear you! I’m not the biggest comic book guy so you’re probably more knowledgeable than I am lol

    • The thing that ruined “First Class” for me was Emma. She was my favorite character in the comics, and they did her no justice at all in the movie. At least “Wolverine: Origins” paired her with Scott. I don’t give that movie much, but I’ll give it that, haha.

    Went to see Logan today. It was REALLY GOOD. I never was a fan of either xmen franchise or wolverine or even Hugh Jackman, but this one was beyond my expectation. It was really violent though. I feel like this movie was what Zack Snyder would want BVS to be (but failed, a bit). I’m really loyal to DC but Logan is for sure my top 3 superhero movie of 2017. I’d give it 8/10

    I have to agree with criticaloptimistblog, while there is some small crossover I don’t think Deadpool is part of the X-Men universe either and since he is not part of the team lead by Prof X and others should not even be in this list IMHOP – other than that your spot on!

  9. I wouldn’t call deadpool an X-Men movie, I know it features collosus, and deadpool is a mutant, but the X-Men films tackle complex issues with a considerable gravitas, while deadpool, by design, is more or less a gigantic joke.

    I’d still put the original X-Men movie as the best. It really is the only one that just really blew me away in the cinema and admittedly that was because I didn’t know what to expect and all the other movies had massive amounts of hype to live up to, but I really just enjoyed the first movie and the others are all kind of take them or leave it.

    • MovieBabble says:

      I could see that! X-Men is a lot like The Avengers in that it’s the first time that all you favorite characters were on screen together and every movie after can’t quite reach that level of magic.

  11. Jaime says:

    X2 is one of my favorites in the franchise. I’m not sure I would argue that it’s better than First Class or Days of Future Past, but it’s still one of my favorites.

  12. Hey very good list. I totally can agree with this 😀

  13. Cool list. So many ups and downs in this franchise! Would like to see an updated article when Logan comes out. Can’t wait for that movie!

  14. film4fan says:

    I agree with all of them, good list!

    […] a time where these films were still struggling to catch on with the general public.  Although the X-Men franchise started a few years prior, many people didn’t jump onboard with the hero movement until Sam […]
