Directed by: Bryan Singer
Mystique's CGI looked great
The Future Sentinel things were scary
Way to take the only good thing about the first movie (actually having two well written characters) and stop doing it. Looking back at what I said about First Class, this movie admittedly doesn't have the cringe-y dialogue from before. It just replaced it with snore-inducing, hackneyed shit. Oddly enough, I've come to expect more from my comic book movies.
Directed by: Paul Thomas Anderson
The first half of this movie is basically insufferable. Every character in annoying, the soundtrack is annoying, the story is annoying. There were a few good scenes in the second half, the pace is a little less unpleasant but the story actually gets pretty boring. This is a mishmash and none of it is good except for the character of Barry and the subsequent performance of Adam Sandler.
