X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) somehow, miraculously, manages to mix in the X-films (X-Men, X2, The Wolverine) and the First Class X-Men films together while simultaneously negating the negative entries in the franchise (X3 and X-Men Origins). The grue-crew revel in the film’s accomplishments and question some of the time travel shenanigans.

X-Men Days of Future Past (2014)
The gang’s all here, just about every single character in the X-Men series is included in the latest X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Based on a famous two-part story from the early 1980’s from Chris Claremont and John Byrne, Bryan Singer’s return to franchise mixes time travel with all the favorites to produce one of the genres best films. All this and they succeed in making Quicksilver awesome! Gadzooks!
