Re: Its that time again to rank the X-Men movies!
X2: X-Men United
X-Men: First Class -- The Wolverine (tie)
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
First Class is a little overrated, IMO, and The Wolverine is just as good as it (if not an even better film). The thing that ties them for me is the First Class really works well for an "X-Men" movie, whereas The Wolverine is truly a solid stand-alone story. Yeah, there are a few other mutants present throughout, but nowhere close to the amount we saw in Origins. So this was a really great one-off story that doesn't have too much bearing in the overall X-Men universe, per say, but does justice to the Wolverine we've come to know and love.
Past the point of no return...
