    X-Men: Apocalypse 2016

    ★★★ Watched 19 May, 2016

    The last two movies in the X-Men franchise have successfully rebooted the series with new actors and really focused on the tumultuous relationship between Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr aka Magneto (Michael Fassbender). The great cast coupled with story-lines that delved into themes of brotherhood, discrimination and prejudice served as a great foundation for the films while still providing enough spectacle to keep the audience entertained.

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 03 Aug, 2014

    There's a lot to like about Dawn. Like a lot of great sequels, the themes are a lot darker than its predecessor, and that in itself lends an emotional weight to the proceedings, adding to the feeling that there is a lot at stake to the events that unfold on-screen.
