X-Men 9 - Dark Phoenix (2019)

Now this was DARK. So dark. So different from what I'd envisioned after I saw the trailer too. Allegiances get switched-up - I'll say that much. The trailer doesn't give you the full picture, and in this case (and in most cases) I really appreciate that.

I really appreciate the special effects too. Amazing special effects. And as with all X-Men movies I appreciate the somber tone. It's so serious, the filming's professional, the mood is dark and the emotions are just all over the place, and that's why I love it.

Compared to the main universe that Marvel manages this is just such a different beast. There's no comedy here. No wit. No small jokes scattered around the canvas. It's so different I forget that Marvel's really behind this one too, and it shows what a breadth of greatness they're really capable of.

I still feel like some things are just a tad bit too predictable, and some emotional moments so clearly scripted but... everything else I love.

I watched Men In Black (the International one) right after this, and it was good with some comedy, cause this: it's dark. It's X-Men, sure, but they keep surpassing my expectations there. Great watch.

 rated 4.5/5: almost awesome
