X-Men is “outdated”

FFS, i hope the reason the new X-Men film is called Dark Pheonix, instead of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, has nothing to do with this ridiculousness.

Dark Phoenix was hot garbage. Sad whimper to the final "First Class" cast of films.

I think the only highlight in the whole film was the similarity between Magneto's compound island and the compund in Legion. Was that the same set or what?

I think the only highlight was that the human antagonists at the end was the "Mutant Containment Unit" or "MCU" for short.

Rename it to X-women, if it helps.
It's mostly women saving men, after all, at least in the movie, I was told.

The new(ish) X-Men films with James McAvoy et al are really not good
The only movies I liked.

Saw the movie, it was a hot pile of shit tho.

They are better of canning the series entirely.

Specially the ending really showcased how bad the acting really is between those new versions of the old ones.

God dam it, why do people get old.

they should do a Pixar X-Men movie. IMO they need to try more animated takes on the concept in general, i think it suits it.
