    X-Men: Apocalypse

    ★½

    Bloated, dull, narratively undisciplined, an unsightly CGI maelstrom; and yet, still far from the worst super hero movie released in the Year of Our Lord 2016.

    Every so often I remember this movie exists. And wow, what a sanctimonious piece of trash.

    ★★★★★

    Before the excess of the Earth, of which all are intimately a part, we are made equal. There is a democracy of the terrestrial, and W.S. faces the catastrophic power that makes it so with great compassion and love. Pompeii is profoundly melancholic, but it defiantly refuses nihilistic despair. I was humbled by this film.

    For the first hour, I yearned for Rachel Weisz to show up and enliven the film. During the second hour, I yearned for the film to go back to what it was before. (Note: Rachel Weisz is not one of this film's problems. It's just a bad movie.)
