    If I have to put Deadpool on the list it shares the second place with X-Men, it was really fun. And Origins well... No comment

    I never paid much attention to Logan's movies.

    I know many would consider it outrageous for someone to enjoy Apocalypse more than Days of Future Past, but I thought the third act here was much more exciting than in Days of Future Past, where the past Sentinels did nothing and the future ones were just unstoppable.
    Plus, I care much more about characters like Cyclops, Jean, Nightcrawler and even Psylocke than I do about Wolverine, Mystique and Magneto. And even Magneto's arc in this movie was much more heartfelt than his story in DOFP.

    Objectively, Deadpool and X-Men are better films than Apocalypse, but Apocalypse edges out due to the soundtrack, sheer spectacle, attachment to the FC cast and the great casting for the young X-Men. They are pretty interchangable in terms of rewatchability though.

    Again objectively, The Wolverine should be higher than X3, but the fact that I've not cared much for Logan (though I appreciate his role in the series) and that X3 had a glorious soundtrack and two standout sequences (Jean killing Xavier and her final destruction of Alcatraz) makes X3 more rewatchable for me. To be honest though, I view them as two parts of a larger whole (Logan killing Jean and him grieving over it).

    Origins does not exist for me.

    I disliked very much X-Men First Class, it was very boring movie for me and until this day I really don't understand how people would prefer it instead of X-Men The Last Stand. Maybe because I'm old, I'm don't belong the Jennifer Lawrence generation. I'm more of Famke of generation. X-Men the Last Stand had many faults but is more interesting of watching instead of the whole boring parts of First Class.

    X-Men Origins Wolverine got Deadpool wrong, I can see that. But for the movie that character made sense in that way. They created a weapon, a mutant empowered with other's mutants powers, it was cool for that movie. It wasn't cool for Deadpool fans though.

    The Wolverine was so boring. The whole movie in Japan. Couldn't take it.

    Arguably there are better movies under Apocalypse, but I'm really in love with Apocalypse right now. The list will probably change in few months as I've had more time to think.

    I really have to divide mine into bands, rather than ranking one-by-one.

    1. X-Men First Class
    X2: X-Men United
    Deadpool

    2. X-Men: Apocalypse
    X-Men: Days of Future Past

    3. X-Men
    X-Men: The Last Stand

    4. X-Men origins: Wolverine
    The Wolverine

    First Band: I loved the newness of first class, as well as the fantastic actors. Also Kevin Bacon's Shaw was a fantastic villain. X2 had some amazing scenes, such as the White house opening and the Woverine/Deathstrike fight, which really drew me into the movie. Finally Deadpool, well what can I say, I've seen the Deadpool/Colossus freeway interaction about 20 times and I still laugh my ass off every time. (C: Do you have off switch? D: Yeah, It's right next to the prostate, or is that the on switch?):funny::funny::funny::funny:

    2nd Band: By the slimmest of margins these movies go to band 2. DOFP was fantastic, esp the quicksilver scene. The main thing that bugged me about it was the sheer amount of characters that were killed off from FC, especially Emma Frost, as she is a major player in the X-men universe in general. Apocalypse was great too, and I think the critics have got it way wrong in their scores. For me there were just a few things (Like Havok's death) that felt pointless.

    3rd Band: The first and third X-men movies for me were on about the same level. I've never really understood the vitriol aimed at X3. My theory is that people were bummed by the absence of nightcrawler, who was the breakout star and scene stealer in X2. I enjoy these films, but compared to the above they feel just a mark below. Also X3 had a crap version of the Juggernaut, who is my favorite villain/slight antihero.

    4th Band: Whilst I enjoyed watching these movies, I didn't really feel they added much to the overall universe, and the first one really sold out deadpool.
