    ★★★★½

    The whole X-Men universe has been a huge part of not just my childhood, but my whole life up to this point. I've loved almost every film, fan of the comics, and loved every minute of X-Men: The Animated Series.

I was able to keep up with most of the movie, dealing with the housing crisis during the…
