X-Men ★★★★

Rewatched this today with low expectations and it honestly holds up pretty well. Sure, there are some cheesy late 90s/early 2000s moments here, but overall it's a lot less ridiculous than it could have been.

 It's amazing to note the contrast between this film, the start of the X-Men universe, and Logan, which may be the end of it. There were a few rocky patches, but overall, the evolution has been great.
