‘Days of Future Past’ bound? Get caught up with the X-Men Retrospective!


I hated X-3. There. I said it. In my honest opinion, it was one of the absolute worst superhero movies of all time. Brett Ratner needs to be kept away from anything “super,” “hero” or both.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Pretty bad too. How do you take a character that is infamous for breaking the 4th wall and not doing anything about it? How do you take the mouth away from the “Merc with a Mouth?” Why would you delegate Emma Frost to being a prisoner when she can turn herself into diamond? Why make Sabretooth Logan’s half brother?!

Then we got First Class, and I couldn’t have been happier. We finally got back to a good X-Men film that set the stage for a plethora of future projects. Don’t believe me? Days of Future Past isn’t even credited as a sequel to First Class. That honor goes to X-Men: Apocalypse, which hasn’t even begun production yet. But I’m getting ahead of myself, just like the latest X-Men film. To help you better understand the overarching storyline present here, take a gander at the X-Men Retrospective.

Presented by joblo.com, this little 7-minute supercut of all the X-Films to date (including DOFP) puts everything in perspective and give you a nice little recap of all the films that are considered a part of this cinematic mutant extravaganza, even the horrible little ones I may have mentioned before. So sit back, take a few minutes, and refresh your memory as Professor X, Mystique, Magneto, Wolverine, and all the rest begin a new adventure that could set off an even larger cinematic X-Men universe!

So what did you think? Are your X-genes pumping with excitement? Or is it too little, too late for your X-craze to rise up? Leave your comments below.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens Friday, May 23rd.
