02:43
go ahead and jump into this with our
02:44
non-spoiler review mr. Chuck Taylor why
02:47
don't you go ahead and get started what
02:49
were your feelings on this new movie the
02:52
last movie of the Fox x-men
02:57
well I guess everybody was saying it was
03:00
trash so I guess I just you know I just
03:05
wanted to give it a chance
03:06
oh my gosh everybody said venom was
03:08
trash there's a lot of movies that they
03:09
said were trash that weren't that bad so
03:11
no just going into it kind of just you
03:14
know expecting the worst
03:16
I felt I actually enjoyed the movie yeah
03:19
a lot of plot holes stories didn't
03:21
really line up but what I want to see I
03:23
kind of got the most stuff I saw Phoenix
03:26
doing some crazy stuff definitely they
03:30
did it definitely a lot better on her
03:32
than they did on The Last Stand and they
03:35
actually you know I guess we kind of
03:36
give it a little bit they kind of kept a
03:37
little more truer with the comics on
03:39
this movie with some how how she became
03:43
Phoenix last I was like what the world
03:45
where that comes from but other than
03:49
that you know them standing a little
03:51
more true I enjoyed the third act
03:54
like pride that probably got really
03:56
excelled the movie sold it to me was
03:58
just seeing you know all the different
04:00
battles magneto did a great job in this
04:04
movie
04:05
Charles see him going through what he
04:06
had to go through just kind of really
04:09
getting humbled a little bit in this
04:11
movie so it was it was cool to kind of
04:12
see everybody go through what they went
04:14
through Michael Wolfe but you know I
04:26
enjoy I enjoyed the movie um the patient
04:29
it was a little sad throughout so much
04:34
of the movie so and then it's not like
04:36
um it doesn't really count I guess allow
04:39
you to get that MCU type of feel and
04:42
some of the moves like I said in the
04:44
camera the bridge y'all upbeat and then
04:47
it takes you to a battle type of thing
04:48
it kind of just keeps you like
04:49
flatlining all the way down to the end
04:54
wow this is intense its intense movie I
04:58
thought the actors I thought they did
05:01
really well
05:02
showing them showing how you know
05:04
well-versed they are as actors really
05:06
tapped into some of their emotions I
05:08
definitely felt Cyclops did better on
05:10
this movie then on the last one I read
05:12
it like him on the other one so he
05:14
definitely did a little bit more work on
05:15
this one but oh no no I enjoyed I
05:18
thought was pretty decent movie um why
05:21
one of the better ones of the x-men I
05:23
actually watched it again so I took it
05:25
down first when I first came out I
05:27
thought it was like probably one of the
05:28
best ones now I kind of looking at the
05:30
movie I was like yeah that third act was
05:33
still the best out of all of them but
05:35
the movie the actual storyline and the
05:37
arc and everything there was a few other
05:39
movies like the x-men - even when Logan
05:42
and Logan was really good to me so I
05:45
would pick a couple of some of those
05:47
over over this one but this one I can't
05:49
say it was trash it was still pretty
05:51
good I enjoyed it
05:52
what about you oh man I agree 100%
05:55
except for the Logan part but just
05:57
because I'm not a fan of a Wolverine I'm
06:01
trying to eat my head a man for
06:03
everybody out there
06:04
don't listen to the Crick's man go in
06:06
with an open mind this movie is a good
06:09
movie I really really enjoyed this movie
06:12
like it's it's fun to sit there and sing
06:14
like okay what's gonna go wrong and then
06:15
you see that you're like this is
06:17
actually pretty good like that's pretty
06:19
good but the action scenes of a really
06:21
great you get the chance to see some of
06:23
your other characters I really do their
06:25
thing without being overwhelmed or
06:27
overshadowed by Wolverine it was it was
06:29
nice to actually have a movie with
06:31
Wolverine was that just dominating
06:33
everything and of course we saw it in
06:34
Apocalypse as well but this one like
06:36
some of your characters that you really
06:38
like that haven't had the chance to
06:40
shine really get an opportunity to shine
06:42
and smooth yet and I like that just like
06:44
Chuck said realize that the movie is
06:46
going to get dark and it's going to stay
06:49
there the quicker that you realize that
06:53
going into the movie the better you'll
06:55
be there yes don't expect to you know
06:58
feel good or have any relief for be like
07:00
oh man yeah that was a dark scene but
07:02
I'm glad sits over nice they're gonna
07:04
just punish you they're gonna punish you
07:07
they're gonna make you feel good for
07:08
about 15 minutes and then they're just
07:10
going to make you question your
07:11
existence it's one of the two hours
07:14
after that but I really enjoyed the
07:16
movie I definitely think it was one of
07:17
the best if not the best x-men I could
07:20
definitely see how x2 would be a
07:22
competitor because x2 is a very very
07:24
good movie so its first class okay so
07:30
that is it for our non-spoiler review I
07:32
really encourage you guys to go see this
07:35
movie and make a judgment for yourself
07:37
don't wait for a DVD I'm talking to you
07:40
a case topical but don't weigh from the
07:43
DVD go in and watch the movie yourself
07:45
it's a decent movie anything else to say
07:48
before we get into these boilers you sir
07:52
I went to them to talk go ahead alright
08:00
so it's time for spoilers spoilers
08:01
spoilers bullets take it again man so
08:17
let's go ahead and get into these all of
08:19
review of x-men dark themes
08:22
yeah I mean okay so basically with this
08:27
with this movie I really I really
08:29
enjoyed how to meet gene they kind of
08:31
kept up with the comic books with her
08:32
desorbing the power up in space and you
08:36
know I thought that was a pretty good
08:38
scene whenever when they went out the
08:39
space to rescue the the astronaut yeah
08:44
yeah astronauts you know seeing all them
08:46
kind of work together they kind of
08:48
brought that team feel of x-men back
08:50
okay so they're doing missions and stuff
08:52
together and I thought that was really
08:54
cool to see when when I guess everything
08:59
happened when she was trying to save
09:01
everyone so she kind of called the force
09:03
into her own body that's what kind of
09:05
look like to me on screen I don't know
09:07
if that's what they meant and she became
09:09
the Phoenix and everything just sucked
09:11
this out of her I'm assuming like I
09:13
guess on that point I was like whoa like
09:16
it's a little weird like I don't really
09:19
know if I would be bringing her on board
09:21
of the ship if every like a huge
09:23
explosion just stuck inside of her body
09:26
like y'all just like fly I didn't bring
09:29
right back don't even like think about
09:30
anything
09:31
like that whole point to me when they
09:32
were like just checking her out like the
09:34
whole point when she got back on the
09:35
ship and she went back to the school and
09:38
he did a little basic little look at her
09:39
like I know I know y'all saw her just
09:42
get exploded in space right and all the
09:45
flames and everything went into her body
09:46
like I felt like they just kind of
09:49
walked over that point it was like okay
09:52
we surprised you would let me face not
09:56
necessary left there in space but I
09:57
think they would have had a little more
09:59
precautions at least when they got it
10:00
back but it was like yeah I just walk
10:02
around go have fun and it's something
10:09
you know they won't know that happening
10:12
with us guy we gotta leave her out there
10:14
no G Scott remains so nobody made it
10:20
back the main thing we mate
10:26
when they kind of got into the story and
10:30
then you just saw all the disagreements
10:31
everybody on the team was having I don't
10:34
know I was ready for Raven to go like I
10:38
don't know she aggravated me at the
10:39
beginning the movie I was kind of tired
10:42
of her antics like yeah we need you to
10:45
go ahead and go and what she went to me
10:47
the movie just shot off it's like yes
10:49
it's getting like there now everybody is
10:51
you know everybody's emotions is so so
10:55
high like beasts like me know I go for
10:57
age monster and I'm now I'm teaming up
10:59
with he's teaming up with may need it'll
11:01
trying to get a girl had to kill her he
11:03
you don't care about saving her at all
11:04
he just cares about ending Jean Grey now
11:07
so seeing him and magneto team-up in the
11:10
movie and they have that standoff with
11:13
Charles and the other x-men in New York
11:15
that was a pretty good fight but the I
11:19
guess the real the real enemy of the
11:21
whole movie worthy I know they're not
11:24
the scrolls but they basically were the
11:26
springs did you hear what they call
11:31
those people yeah one dude the black
11:34
dude said d'bari
11:35
like one time yeah it was called the bar
11:43
I don't know anything about them but
11:45
they said they're shapeshifters aliens I
11:46
think that's just a cop-out cuz they had
11:49
scrolls and then everybody was like oh
11:51
well now Disney bought it and it's too
11:53
similar to Captain Marvel - she has
11:54
scrolls and they're fighting the space
11:55
so here will them change everything but
11:58
I guess that's that's kind of why we
12:00
didn't really have a background of those
12:02
other enemies that kind of like just
12:04
showed up start killing people and you
12:07
know and give a little bit of dialogue
12:09
why they were doing it but you don't
12:11
really get a little bit you can get that
12:12
much insight on them so I think they
12:15
could have done better with that I'm
12:16
some of they probably couldn't have to
12:18
move you up when they reach tried
12:20
everything
12:20
I'm sure later the first cut could have
12:23
been a little bit more inclusive and who
12:25
they were you know
12:28
Jabari d'bari but once they came in and
12:31
they really got in jeans hit I don't
12:35
know it's just I really enjoyed Jean
12:37
making those really hard decisions like
12:39
when she's trying to like fight off
12:41
Phoenix and she's like killing her
12:44
friends and she's like trying to stop
12:46
from like you know doing something like
12:49
horrible like when she's making Charles
12:51
come up the stairs I was in the movie
13:15
that I was rolling looking at him cold
13:16
stares and just kind of fast-forward and
13:21
I'm just going through get some of the
13:23
scenes I really liked so that seen her
13:25
and Magneto she just kind of like takes
13:27
a needle out you know with no problem
13:29
but they had some stupid seasonal saying
13:33
I'm the same epic fights like magneto
13:35
pulling up a train out the ground a
13:37
subway when he had a bus sitting right
13:40
there everywhere just grabbed the bus of
13:47
the cars and go fight like okay he had
13:49
to go show his muscle just drag up
13:51
people out there from from the subway it
13:53
was coming I was kind dumb and pointless
13:56
um but you know all at all I like I said
14:01
the last the third act is really what
14:03
saved the movie for me even though some
14:06
stuff it makes sense how that that that
14:09
train scene would when they had the
14:11
x-men all chained up and Davari
14:14
shape-shifting scroll people were coming
14:18
in and they all started fighting he saw
14:20
magneto just go crazy but he was just
14:23
mentioned smacking people with trains
14:25
shooting them up with the bullets
14:27
beast mode was gone
14:29
cutting people up yeah think about it
14:32
was just slicing people and a storm
14:34
actually no actually used some of the
14:37
powers that she has you know she's usual
14:39
Lightning flicker here there she used
14:40
the whole you know she's hurricane winds
14:44
she used frozen rain she was lightning
14:47
thunderstorms everything so she's an old
14:50
repertoire and I was good to finally see
14:52
her let loose I guess I can let loose
14:53
cuz it was like
14:54
invincible aliens it wasn't just people
14:56
that they were trying to stop they can
14:58
they could kill these people
14:59
so great oh no I enjoyed that third act
15:04
so much it made me actually really like
15:05
a movie so I don't know how the rest of
15:08
the movie is you watch that last part
15:09
you're going to meet you can really like
15:11
it so what about you oh man yeah I
15:15
really did I really did like this here
15:17
let me see here the action scenes will
15:20
great Quicksilver and my crawler at the
15:23
space station I mean a space shuttle
15:25
teleporting and all that stuff was
15:28
awesome
15:29
beast and Nightcrawler on the train with
15:31
beasts were like you almost a big beast
15:33
is like a punk now be state no I would
15:36
like these dudes the whole thing oh god
15:41
yeah but the best theme in the entire
15:44
movie was Nightcrawler boy don't piss my
15:47
scroll off man
15:48
don't don't piss him off cuz he will
15:50
teleport you in front of it I'm coming
15:52
train that was the best scene in the
15:56
whole movie right there man um Magneto's
15:59
first appearance right when Jean first
16:02
goes someplace are you trying to figure
16:03
out where she is no sudden you just EG
16:05
magnet just thing or you know hold one
16:14
me up or something he just was just
16:16
standing and he just moved close that's
16:18
like how that was amazing um well they
16:21
acting I liked a lot of the acting in
16:23
the movie I really like Professor X
16:25
showing that that arrogance and kind of
16:27
doing a couple of things that were a
16:28
little shady here and there like that's
16:30
really appropriate to his character like
16:32
that's how Professor X is he's kind of
16:35
big hated and he kind of he tries to do
16:37
right but sometimes his arrogance kind
16:39
of gets the best of him one of my
16:41
favorite parts there was when he and
16:43
beats were arguing and beast was like
16:46
you know just admit it just admit that
16:48
you did something wrong he's like yeah
16:50
Hank I hope you feel better
16:53
he did not be left it um I really like
16:57
Alexandra Shipp as as storms
17:00
I really respect how she portrayed the
17:02
character I thought she did a much
17:03
better job than any time I've seen storm
17:06
play the role and I can see why she
17:08
would be upset that people don't want
17:10
her to be storm because she obviously
17:12
worked very hard at the role
17:14
unfortunately the rule is just not meant
17:16
for her you know
17:17
it's like Tom Cruise trying to play a
17:20
part that was meant for Arnold
17:21
Schwarzenegger like it's not meant for
17:23
you but I felt she did a great job
17:25
very strong I liked her accent I
17:28
respected some of the decisions that
17:30
they made in the movie like taking
17:31
Quicksilver out of the movie pretty
17:32
early because he's trip number one he's
17:34
tradition about x-men and he would
17:36
overshadow others and I like what they
17:38
did with the scrolls their right
17:40
character mom would take notes that's
17:42
what we wanted these are things I
17:43
disliked about - movie though I hate
17:46
that they took out one of the best
17:47
dialogues in the whole thing it was like
17:50
in the in the trailers Mike Scott is
17:51
talking to Professor X he's like tell me
17:53
what to do
17:54
I don't know what to do yeah I thought
18:01
it was a poor decision to remake the
18:04
Dark Phoenix movie I really did and I
18:06
think that that's what's killing them in
18:07
the box office right now I think that
18:09
the last dance which honestly was not a
18:12
terrible movie - the last egg was just
18:15
not a good movie but unfortunately
18:17
sometimes over time things that are not
18:20
good become horrible over time you know
18:23
I think that's what happened to the last
18:25
dan and I think that that killed this
18:27
movie that people like we've already
18:29
seen it you know something it was a
18:32
mistake because the movie is pretty good
18:34
but I think people being burnt but it
18:35
let me see here huh so you know what
18:41
killer movie yeah
18:43
people people were burnt by the last day
18:44
and I think no money oh there's no as we
18:52
killed them that's what
18:54
that's definitely lesson that Fox would
18:56
have gotten out of that death oh we got
19:00
three scoops reshoot sound around
19:03
stabbing people yep
19:05
and this movie would have definitely
19:08
been a much better third movie
19:09
unfortunately they didn't have that
19:10
choice but another channel said it best
19:12
these are characters that we recognize
19:14
but not characters that we care about
19:16
like if there had been another movie
19:18
between this one and apocalypse but we
19:20
really got the chance to learn Jean this
19:22
particular Jean and Cyclops more it
19:25
would have meant more to see Jean going
19:27
bad
19:28
instead of like oh yeah that's the story
19:29
that I recognize um let me see here I'm
19:32
trying to cut it short here I didn't
19:35
like anything about mystique nothing I
19:37
didn't like nothing about her character
19:38
like her light blue scared I don't like
19:41
a light blue skin I was gonna I was
19:43
gonna mention that because some people
19:46
might think I'm reaching here but I
19:48
don't because I think that they tried to
19:50
make her character more of a of a
19:52
leadership role a more likable and
19:55
approachable type of character so what's
19:57
one way to make your character more
19:59
likeable and approachable
20:00
lighten her skin I don't like that I
20:03
don't like the message that that seems
20:06
mystique had been just fine is a parka
20:09
skin blue person and now they lighten
20:11
her skin to me and maybe that wasn't a
20:12
reason but that's kind of what I said
20:14
um I don't like the fact that she's a
20:16
team leader with the x-men mystique is
20:18
one of the x-men's like biggest villains
20:22
that's kind of like Doctor Doom being a
20:27
team leader with the hell with the
20:28
Fantastic Four just hanging out with
20:30
them hey you know is everybody okay your
20:32
money do not we gotta do the same thing
20:34
he's arguing with mr. fantastic about
20:36
about how the team is doing like no that
20:39
that's completely inaccurate as far as
20:41
the character is concerned and they just
20:43
I hate it I'm glad that they get rid of
20:44
her um but the last thing and I think
20:46
this is the biggest problem that people
20:48
have with the movie the tone of the
20:51
movie it's the fact that after the intro
20:53
the tone goes dark and it stays there
20:57
the entire me I say put foot on your
21:00
neck just don't let up like all right
21:05
for the next you know hour 45 two hours
21:08
you know and that's a mistake they
21:10
definitely should I'm not saying that
21:11
they should have some jokes in there but
21:13
they definitely should let up and I
21:15
think the music editing had everything
21:18
to do with this I thought the movie had
21:20
great music but the music editing killed
21:23
it because that music wasn't really the
21:26
thing to me that's putting that foot on
21:28
your neck because the music is commonly
21:30
so sad and the blah blah blah there
21:33
needs to be some scenes where cop there
21:35
can be conversations between people
21:37
without music like when Rome when uh
21:39
magneto and Phoenix first talked like
21:43
when they were sitting down talking
21:44
there should have been no music until
21:47
such time as magneto said whose blood is
21:49
that that's when the music should have
21:50
come again so yeah that's what killed
21:53
the Lupus that this the that's that mood
21:56
is just killing it overall though I
21:58
thought it was a really good movie if
21:59
you can get past that the action scenes
22:02
are great I thought the acting was great
22:03
I thought Michael Fassbender and um your
22:06
boy James McAvoy who is amazing
22:09
well awesome anything else you want to
22:11
say about this movie sir um no just kind
22:15
of piggyback like basically if you don't
22:17
care about I guess every point of the
22:21
movie like to make a good movie you just
22:23
want to go find some that's gonna
22:24
entertain you I think it would entertain
22:25
now I can't say after watching the
22:28
Stegner Tom it's definitely not as as
22:30
impactful as it was the first time we
22:32
watched it so you know you know I can't
22:36
really say now that I'm kind of looking
22:38
at a few more times I was thinking like
22:39
okay Doug really liked this movie I
22:41
really like the third act I think this
22:43
is all I can take for the new it I
22:44
really like the fighting and then on
22:47
that third act if they would have
22:49
intertwined a little bit more that in
22:50
the movie it kind of takes a while for
22:53
them to build up to the main fights so I
22:56
I definitely didn't today they messed up
22:59
a lot of movie with going back and kind
23:00
of cutting it up because I heard they
23:01
have so many shoots and edits and things
23:04
when Disney bought it so I only know
23:06
what the real true movie was it kind of
23:08
just got completely destroyed you know
23:10
based off of you know because it's the
23:12
last movie of the Fox brand before
23:16
Disney takes over and Disney just like
23:18
hey we're gonna get this out we only
23:19
care what you got it looks okay
23:21
make a little bit a little bit of money
23:23
on this movie and put these characters
23:25
on the shelf for about five years
23:28
so okay alright guys well if you like
23:35
what we did here make sure you leave us
23:37

23:39

23:41
the end of the Fox x-men movies who
23:44
basically really kicked off other than
23:47
blade of course really kicked off this
23:50
whole recent superhero thing that we
23:52
