This needs to be mentioned far, far more than anyone is. Why haven’t we seen Moira in X1? Something’s up with that, for sure.

Because this is Moira’s ninth life. Or maybe her sixth. But come on, folks, 1) the world we’re seeing is almost exactly the one that X2 describes as its past, and 2) as you seem to be saying, there is just no way this is 616 continuity, as crazily out of character as so many people are acting. Some massive, massive

So is there, like, any chance that the ratings for this show are based on a scam somewhat akin to how half of the engagement with sponsored social media content is fake? Like, who are the people watching this show in such droves? I’m not sure I’ve ever met one.

Remember when people generally understood that expressing an opinion about something, besides being a critic’s job, also isn’t remotely the same thing as demanding that everyone else in the world hold the same opinion?

Okay, so I want someone who has seen the movie to explain something at some point. I keep seeing all these reviews that say things like:

This was exactly my thought. It’s actually a pretty perfect analogy, it just doesn’t mean what Johnson thinks it means.

If you’re American, I think you can just fill in for the answer to the same question about Bernie Sanders, AOC, Elizabeth Warren, etc.

Yeah, X1 being the sixth life I think is the other option. I’m sort of wedded to the “one timeline” theory just because I don’t understand why else X0 and X1 are so similar to what happened in the past of X2—like, how could all the same stuff happen in two timelines, except that once Xavier and Magneto were at the

I know it feels that way, but I promise you that’s not how it works.

Yeah, it really says something that almost every example people can come up with of something that approaches objectively good actually turns out, once you dig, to be something he had almost no real involvement in beyond business-end production stuff.

I know, right?? Like, you start reading that list and their comment really doesn’t seem to saying what they think it is, lol. Like, I thought at first “they’re right, OP is probably exaggerating,” but then I read the list, and I was like “crap, crap, crap, oh god that was terrible” etc.

To be fair, there is an awful lot of crap on that list. And a lot of it did well enough but definitely weren’t caught by the majority of people: I loved Alias and some of Fringe, but they were constantly in danger of cancellation from low ratings; things like Cloverfield and Super 8 did decently for sure, but were

That’s what most people have been thinking, and it was what James was saying up until this week when he’s referring to Powers all being in one timeline (which would have to be the ninth life, because we know X2 is).

the set up for what we already know is going to be a wild path for Mister Sinister is laid. There’s an air of tragedy to it all, and of menace; we know that Sinister is going to one day betray Mutantkind after decades of creating armies of chimeric mutants to fight their way with humanity, because we’ve seen the

Because it’s not actually Xavier, it’s some sort of Krakoa/Sinister clone of him that was made after the real one was killed by Apocalypse, who is running the show with Moira from the black heart of Krakoa (the “place unseen by Krakoa itself” mentioned in House #1), because X1 is the past of x2, Moira’s ninth life.

Yeah, but full screening it only upgrades it from “worst of all time” to “pretty terrible.”
