Dying of cancer, a dishonourably-discharged special forces soldier submits to experimentation to save his life, which was actually to enslave him and resulted in mutant powers with a scarring side effect, forcing him to hunt down his creator for both revenge and the cure.

An adequate movie on-par with the other adequate superhero movies. This has some significant laugh-out-loud moments, and with a lot of blood and cursing to make it an R-rated movie, it rides on the ho-hum samey-same superhero movie trend all the way to success.

Features nothing new or interesting in the expanded universe. In fact, involves nothing from any other movie whatsoever.

Recommended for those who are hipster for the "superhero genre" movie trend.

X-Men - Apocalypse (2016) poster

An Old One is awakened, and renews his takeover of the world.. except we already know the good guys win because this takes place in the 80s and a past movie, set in the then-future, has an intact world with all characters accounted for.

A standard superhero movie, with nothing particularly interesting. Extremely confusing given that this is a sequel to a sequel to a prequel or some shit.

I would have done a few things different, and even a few subtle changes would have made this movie a hell of a lot better.

Definitely pass on this unless you're really into this particular series.

  • Properly titled X-Men: Apocalypse

Five young scientists invent a technology to teleport to some other world, but there are terrible consequences.

An adequate movie. Recommended if you're already into this class of movie. Apparently this superhero retardation is now an entire class of movie. God dammit this is some lazy bullshit.

Iron Man is a prick, dooming the world unless The Avengers can save it.

Another comic book movie. Meh. I'm sure it made money, but it makes no contributions to anything whatsoever. Recommended for pop comic book movie fans.

  • Properly titled Avengers: Age of Ultron.


TODO - I'll add better notes when I get around to re-watching this.

The son of a demon king, destined to destroy the world and all humanity, is just an average guy in a difficult relationship trying to save the world. Or something.

A forgettable movie made all the more terrible because of its attachment to its parent. This movie lacks anywhere near that movie's theme or mood. This is a joke semi-fantasy film.
