I thought Days of Future Past was really good. Best X-Men movie since X2. It was way better than First Class (and The Last Stand and Origins: Wolverine - I still haven't seen The Wolverine, but now I want to).
I was really impressed with how what could have been a bloated, exposition-filled giant retcon pulled together to make something so good. I've been pretty jaded lately with the whole franchise mindset and while this movie is pretty much the ultimate franchise movie, it didn't stop me from thoroughly enjoying myself. I was immersed from start to finish and it was a lot of fun.
The best part? Quicksilver's scene during the jailbreak! Okay, maybe not, but man was that scene awesome. I don't know if I've ever laughed like that during another superhero movie.
I also went to see it with a friend I haven't seen in about a year, so I had a great time seeing this movie.
Where sky and water meet,
Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not, Reepicheep,
To find all you seek,
There is the utter east.
