  1. 1. What'd You Think?

This was actually better than I thought it would be. Yes it was cheap and unambitious, but I liked the whole Nightmare on Elm Street 3 vibe to it. Also bonus points for having better LGBTQ representation in one movie than the whole of the MCU. Anna Taylor-Joy was the highlight but the rest of the cast did the best they could with underwritten roles. If this was the pilot for some Netflix show I’d probably watch more.

I did not like this movie, and I can see why it kept getting delayed. The film took forever to get going, and did do a good job (for a while) at keeping me watching the set up. But it kept setting up, and didn't have that big a delivery. 

 

It wasn't a super hero film, not really an origin story nor a hero vs villain to save the city kind of film. It wasn't a horror film, despite the set up steering in that direction, It was at best a teens learn to get along and deal with an oppressive teacher kind of teen appeal film. Did I ever really care what the main characters' power was? I don't even care to remember anyone's names. Of course she killer her whole tribe, and deserved to be there. She, like all mutants does grow up and learn to control it, and of course the others help her to do that before the staff slowly and safely let her. Is the second facility designed to weaponize them? will there be a sequel? again, who cares.

IDK why they made Illyana racist when Rahne in the comics is canonically a huge bigot. They should have just switched their characterizations. Illyana is even canonically bi (though that wasn't until long after the movie would have been shot, but Rahnes not gay in the comics either so)
