X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men: Days of Future Past ★★★★★

I actually love Days of Future Past so much more than I once thought. The fact that they were able to bring together the original and new X-Men casts and give mostly everybody good material bumps this up greatly for me. The Rogue Cut added so much more context and depth to what the hell was going on, and it definitely increased the stakes in those final moments. I'm amazed at how they ended things in the original timeline, successfully retconning their mistakes from The Last Stand while not making it feel entirely like fan service. While I still wish there was a bit more time before they passed the torch, I'm thrilled to see what happens next. They never should've cut Anna Paquin's scenes from the theatrical release.
