X Men: Apocalypse

I watched X Men: Apocalypse yesteday. Non-spoiler reaction: oh my gosh, this film is ridiculous rubbish, but I had so much fun watching it. No, really, plot holes you can drive a bus through, fridged ladies, obvious plot exposition, cheesey dialogue, and yet all fun to mock. And amongst the mess some really nice moments and really amusing moments. If you enjoy X Men, yes even at least parts of the thid film, and yes even the Wolverine films, then I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy in this one too. I did.

And now I feel the urge to reread old X Men fanfic, but the first set of films and comics fanfic, before all the Charles/Erik and back in the days when there were lots of X Kids shenanigan fics.

I leave you with one of my favourite X vids, an oldie but a goodie: these are the days (of miracle and wonder) by kaydeefalls. (Password is just above the vid.)
