    It also helps you understand why Xavier did what he did. The idea that she is going to hurt someone was tearing her a part so the knowledge that she killed her mother would have been too much to bear.

    I saw the film and liked it.

    Didn't really care for Beast's arc tho.

    I will watch it again on VOD. And thankfully this filmed killed off the Dark Phoenix saga, so Jean/Phoenix can do other things when she is added to MCU.

    And yes, the film suffered enormously due to the lack of marketing because of the merger and the changing dates and the news about the reshoots did not help. I think most people figured they would wait to see it on VOD.

    Host: “That’s much cooler than just being fast.”

    Fassy: “Yeah, well, he’s still developing….”

    Fassy: “No I’m very proud of him, like I said, he broke me out of prison!”

    Evan: “Thanks dad!”

    It's not like they had three movies where Magneto and Quicksilver encounter each other.

    Or that those movies span three decades.

    Maybe he just doesn't see it that way.

    What "other things?"
    Doctor Strange: "You are the right person to replace Logan."
    X-23: "I know there are people who disapprove... Guys on the Internet mainly."

    Yeah... I wonder if the people writing it even remembered they are father and son

    I just saw DP today. Considering that my little town has really low cost matinees, I thought it was worth the money. I liked it better than X-3 anyway even if it was completely humorless. I think part of the problem was that it was rushed, and although it should pull on your heartstrings it doesn't. Jean's reason for her sacrifice falls flat because they never bothered to really build up the relationship between Xavier and Jean, or Jean with her other team members. Then there is the presence of Mystique as their team leader instead of Scott, and also Magneto. I hope they release the extended version because there was definitely a feeling of missing elements.

    Question, I don't remember the D'bari as an alien species in the Marvel Universe. Did they pull these from somewhere or make them up? I have to ask myself if they were going to bring in aliens, why not the Shi'ar from the original story. Given the budget of this movie they could have done better, although it's obvious this movie was far below some of the MCU budgets.

    Also, rather than using other known mutants, they throw in a few unknowns. Are there not enough mutants in the X-books that they could have used characters that we would recognize.

    Favorite parts: The scene with Dazzler was fun, good action scenes, especially Kurt's fight scenes. Space scene was okay but the Blackbird seemed so much smaller than in other movies.

    The D'BAri are the alien race that were wiped out by Dark Phoenix in the original comics

    They do appear (a few survivors) in some She-Hulk and Nova stories.

    It seemed to me that this wasn't the Blackbird at all, but a smaller vehicle.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    These characters are not real and nobody loves each other for real. They will dump and love people even if it makes no sense just to for the sake of it.
