It's one of the best times you're likely to have in a theater this year. It doesn't make a ton of sense, but it doesn't always have to. It's the X-Men.

A thrilling, emotionally satisfying return to form for the X-Men.

If X-Men was about coming out of the closet, X2 about unity, X3 about fear-mongering, and First Class about brotherhood, X:Men Days of Future Past is all about course correction.
