PCR #109 - Last Stand of the Dark Phoenix

18Jun

In this episode, Travis and the Professor talk all about the final installment of the long-running X-Men film franchise (until Marvel Studios does it properly!). They start by doing a full spoiler-filled recap of the film and go through everything that worked and definitely did not work. They give their takes on the decade time jumps between films, wonky plotlines, the costumes, both good and bad performances from the cast, X-Men having a Bat-phone, how much everyone loves mutants in this movie, the special mutant cameo we finally got to see, the good and bad of all of the action scenes, production troubles and reshoots, the similarities between this and Last Stand, bad writing and directing, and more! After the recap, they talk about the legacy of the Fox X-Men franchise and what it will be remembered for. Lastly, they decide to give in and do their own casting for the X-Men in the MCU. You can’t miss Xavier’s hot takes on who he picks!
