I found it interesting a film that trashes a holocaust site amongst a number of interesting ideas could manage to be so consistently dull and bland in execution.

I honestly think that the score is responsible for a lot of the things that happen not hitting the audience correctly.

I mean, that and a terrible plot.

Is the girl that played Jean Grey normally that bad, that was the first time I ever seen her in anything.

Know who was the real MVP? Storm's actress, she took the little they gave her and sold it like her life depended on it

My thing with the X-men movie is that we never see the team actually be a team. When they do all come together its either looks very bad in terms of fighting or the cock tease them about to do awesome shit then don't show it. Last scene of apocalypse they actually had their gear but guess what were never going to see them fight sentinels. Moving into the dark phoenix Saga so fast its like i barely even know the characters, cyclops definately got room to breathe in apocalypse but where already at a major arc in the next movie which probably has no build up.

Man where were these quotes in the movie? Would have saved the movie for me if he just kept saying ridiculous things.

They only had the one good scene with his disabling the nukes.

I was a compositor on the movie, and his eyes weren't always white. Like a few weeks before delivery they requested we go back and add the white to his eyes. In just about every shot with him in it. It was ridiculous.

I quite liked him recruiting Angel just for how inept Apocalypse came across.

I wanted a slowmo scene with nightcrawler and quicksilver. Would have been dope!

Should really go back to the time between First Class and DoFP where the cast of First Class isn't mostly dead or disbanded.

And then the marketing tried to play up this "Choose a side" angle like we were getting some Captain America: Civil War-like moral dilemma. No...Apocalypse is a genocidal maniac.

Guessing they're trying to ride the waves of bvs and civil war
