    X-Men: The Last Stand


    I watched this for the first time since I saw it in theaters. I figured, what the hell, plenty of things aren't as bad as I remember them. I didn't have any real taste in 2006; I still liked Revenge of the Sith. I might as well give this one a fair shake.

Tolkien's epic fantasy story, once the domain of literary scholars and devout fanboys, was thrust into pop culture with a trilogy of movies that made their best effort to do justice to the material. The films redefined what could be a viable blockbuster and inspired a generation of future…
