    You know, one of the things I love about this film is that they both have credible arguments.

    I'll be honest, I find it be a really problematic narrative. If you were to tell the exact same story using a pagan god and hero, no one here would have any problem condemning Abraham's actions. If...

    Exactly. Jean is the hero and the villain of the film. She's also a Christ figure who takes on all the X-Men's sins (Xavier's egotism, Beast's vengeance, and her own bitterness) and cleanses them in...

    You know, one of the biggest 'missed potential' moments of Civil War was Ben Reilly not being alive at the time, because I think two characters with the same moral foundation on opposing sides is...

    Why? I'm not a fundamentalist, but I don't qualify every single biblical quotation. Jesus is pointing to the universal truth expressed here. God created humanity, and humans are obligated to honor...

    Absolutely! And I think the fights had a logical flow about them. But I enjoy smaller scale, more intimate fight scenes. Not everything needs to be a hundred heroes and villains rushing at each other...

    That's a great example of Jesus not reading scriptures through a fundamentalist lens. He specifically says that Moses, not God, gave the people divorce as a political concession, because their hearts...

    I think Fox has a really good track record overall. I'd say X1, X2, First Class, DoFP, Apocalypse, Dark Phoenix, The Wolverine, Logan, & Deadpool (haven't seen the second one yet) all range from good...

    X-Men and X2 still hold up really well IMO.

    The SFX and choreography are pretty dated, but I don't see it as a detriment. And there's something really cool about the way superhero films were made...

    I thought the development of Scott and Jean's relationship in X-Men: Apocalypse was one of the strongest parts of the film. We get a clear sense of why they connect with each other, as they're both...

    I enjoyed it, warts and all.

    I'll admit I don't get the Apocalypse criticism. He certainly came across as a more fully realized character than he ever did in the 90s comics. I liked the religious...

    I love PAD's run in its entirety. You never knew what was going to happen with the book.

    It's unfortunate that Marvel pushed PAD off the book by demanding the return of the savage, mindless Hulk...
