This franchise might be aging, but don’t count it out. At least, not with this installment that is equal parts brutal and poignant to the point that, hold on, tears might be shed. Fair warning, X-Men fans.


Something I’ll never understand. For instance, who wrote the rule about rewarding movies no one gets to see unless you live in a “major city”? By the time Oscar night arrives, the general public is lucky to have seen about half the nominees. Andsomewhere it must be written that only the crummy movies can be released in early winter or late summer.
