Rebecca Romijn looked better in blue makeup than JLaw ever did.

Speaking of which, it's amazing that they had the same screenwriter adapt the same storyline from comic book for a movie and it's pretty obvious he missed the point yet again. A key to the Phoenix storyline is not the destructive Dark Phoenix bit itself but the build-up towards it.

It's pretty amazing that The New Mutants is not coming out now until April 2020, considering it was filmed in the summer of 2017 and had its first trailer drop in October of '17

It's the one with Maisie Williams and the girl from Split

I've seen a few reactions so far from audiences and it sounds like Dark Phoenix can be boiled down to this: It gets the Phoenix Force as being a cosmic force instead of a split personality right. That's about it.

I'm less concerned about how it represents the story from the comics, and more concerned with how entertaining the movie is.  There have been plenty of movies that take the seed of an idea from a comics storyline, but make it their own thing - and those have been pretty effective (Winter Solider, Civil War, Infinity War/Endgame, Extremis in Iron Man 3, Planet Hulk in Thor Ragnarok, etc etc etc.)

 

People trashed X-Men Apocalypse, which I thought was just fine (and better than its predecessor Days of Future Past).  I wouldn't watch either of them again, but they were fine.  I expect this to be fine entertainment, too.  I think the only X-men movie that I thought was actually poor was Origins Wolferine

I heard Aubrey Plaza is great in it.  Timewise, I haven't been able to afford picking up new series since my kid was born.

 

The only X-movies I'd make an active choice to rewatch would be X2, First Class, The Wolverine, and Logan

I thought the story was nice and simple, the character motivation was good, the action was well-choreographed and something different for a superhero movie.  Mangold's filmography is pretty good, overall, with a couple of big award nominees and winners, and for me, The Wolverine and Logan are near the top.

Legion is one of Marvel's best TV series and its a shame it doesn't get the recognition it deserves! 

 

I don't even think of it as a Marvel show, or even a comic book / superhero show.  It's just a good show with some sci-fi elements from the writer of Fargo.  And it's great and went super unrecognized its whole run.  I can't wait for the final season.

She is GREAT in it!  As different of a character from April Ludgate as you can get.  This would be a good one to investigate, as the entire run will only be 27 episodes total (the upcoming 3rd season will be its last, which they knew ahead of time).

She's especially brilliant in the first season. I thought her character was kind of sidelined in the second season.
