    X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX Thoughts and Reviews; The NON-SPOILER Edition

    Good evening, all. With X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX opening tomorrow night (in previews anyway), I though this would be a good time to start the review and commentary threads. This one is SPECIFICALLY for NON-SPOILER reviews and comments regarding the movie.

    As something of a Phoenix Saga purist, I'm still not quite sure what my feelings are regarding this, yet another take on my all-time favorite female comics character in less than 15 years, but I guess I'll be seeing the movie theatrically to see if they've been able to correct the sins of THE LAST STAND or if this movie still has the same "grounded" issues which plagued that movie when it came to Phoenix.
    Oh then, what's this? Big flashy lighty thing, that's what brought me here! Big flashy lighty things have got me written all over them. Not actually. But give me time. And a crayon.

    So...is this movie worth seeing at the theater? I'm trying to avoid spoilers, but I knew the reviews have been horrible, and actual viewer ratings have been tepid. Interested to hear what the geek crowd here thinks.

    It was okay. There are some impressive battle scenes and the X-Men's various powers are showcased to good effect, but overall this movie was relatively lacklustre. Admittedly, it's better than "The Last Stand", but it still isn't a worthy adaptation or even interpretation of the Dark Phoenix story.

    Looking for one CAH Mego Comic Activator (working or non working).

    I plan to watch it after Mego Meet. I'm glad to hear it's better than The Last Stand.

    Watched it today, and didn't really like it. It was nothing like the comic story.
