I loved this movie.  I’ve loved all the X-Men movies I’ve seen (with the exception of Wolverine), but this was definitely my favorite.  I tend to enjoy time-travel and I really appreciated how it was handled in this film.  The action scenes were great, as always, and I loved the focus on character relationships.  Plus, the CAST. I mean, do you see the list above? All amazing actors, and not bad on the eyes.  At one point I was distracted by all the pretty before me on the screen.  Who do I love more, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, or Peter Dinklage? I can’t choose! I even love Peter with his terrible 70s style glasses and pornstache.

Can’t wait for Apocalypse in 2016!
