Two years following the success of 2014's "X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST", Marvel Entertainment released a new "X-MEN" film set ten years after the previous one. The movie proved to be the fourth one directed by Bryan Singer.
"X-MEN: APOCALYPSE" began in ancient Egypt, where the world's first mutant, a powerful individual named En Sabah Nur, ruled by by transferring his mind into new bodies. Unfortunately, a group of former worshipprs betrayed En Sabah Nur aka "Apocalypse" by entombing him alive. They also...
"X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST" (2014) Review
When the news reached many fans that Bryan Singer would be helming the next film, fans rejoiced. As far as they were concerned, the best movies from the franchise had been directed by Singer. And since he had served as one of the producers for 2011's "X-MEN: FIRST CLASS", that particular film is highly regarded by fans as well.
The latest film in question, "X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST" seemed to serve as a sequel to both "FIRST-CLASS" and the 2006 movie, "X-MEN: THE LAST STAND". Adapted from Chris...
If anyone had asked me what was the first genuine superhero film, based upon Marvel Comics characters, my choice would be the 2000 flick, "X-MEN". In fact, I suspect that it was the first Marvel film ever shown in the movie theaters. Its success spawned a series of superhero films that continue to this day.
Based upon the Marvel Comics series, the plot for "X-MEN" began first in 1944, at a concentration camp in German-occupied Poland. Thirteen year-old Erik Lehnsherr is separated from his parents, upon entry to the camp. And...
Fans of the X-MEN have been discussing the making of Bryan Singer's new entry to the franchise recently. But while said fans wait eagerly for "X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST", 20th Century Fox and Marvel Comics released a second movie featuring the mutant with adamantium claws called "THE WOLVERINE".
Directed by James Mangold, who first worked with star Hugh Jackman in 2001's "KATE AND LEOPOLD", "THE WOLVERINE" is a tale that begins nearly seventy years earlier, during the waning days of World War II. In...
Recently, I came across a comment that the last "X-MEN" movie, 2009's "X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE", had been a failure. I found this opinion surprising, considering that it actually made a profit at the box office. Failure or not, Marvel Studios decided to continue the movie franchise with a fifth entry called "X-MEN: FIRST CLASS".
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, "X-MEN: FIRST CLASS" is, like the 2009 movie, another origins tale. Only it traced the beginnings of the two friends-turned-adversaries, Charles "Professor...

"X-MEN ORIGINS: Wolverine" (2009) Review
I must admit that when I had learned of Marvel’s plans to release a fourth movie in the "X-MEN" franchise, I did not warm to the idea. And when I learned that this fourth movie would focus upon the origins of James Howlett aka Logan aka Wolverine, my wariness deepened.
Fortunately, "X-MEN ORIGINS: Wolverine" eased most of my doubts. It turned out to be a surprisingly entertaining movie. Directed by Gavin Hood, it...
