Just because you've seen every interview a hundred times or bumped into them on the street does not mean you truly know an actor; they show us the sides they want us to see. Similarly, just because you hate one of them does not magically cause his ideals to be more in line with the "villain", or less in line with the "hero". And either way, who actors are when the cameras aren't rolling should have absolutely no bearing on their roles. And will never be something that dictates their fame.

I don't think that's far enough. We need to be able to suspend disbelief and 2 years doesn't quite do it. But the benefit of only having used dates in the past (1962, 1944) is that they never need to specify when the future is. They can continue their habit of displaying "not too distant future" and the audience can make up their own minds about when it takes place. They'll need to be vague if they're bringing characters back from the dead. I do hope we don't see any of them back from the dead beyond Professor X though. If characters who die keep getting revived, there won't really be any severity to seeing them get killed by sentinels. "Oh it doesn't matter, they'll just pop up in the next movie safe and sound".

Discuss the movie without sniping at each other, or don't discuss the movie with each other at all.
