Ranking the ‘X-Men’ Movies

Jordan Magrath

Jordan, who currently resides in Seattle, WA, has slowly become a film fanatic over the past couple of years. He attributes his love for film to the smash hit THE DARK KNIGHT which has created an (un)healthy obsession with both Christopher Nolan and the Batman franchise. Although he appreciates all genres of film, his favorite movies are typically psychological thrillers, with an emphasis on non-traditional narratives.

    My list would be like this.

    1. X2: X-Men United
    2. The Wolverine Unrated
    3. X-Men First Class
    4. X-Men
    5. X-Men The Last Stand
    6. X-Men Origins: Wolverine

    Oof, nono. First Class was fun, but it is not a great movie. There are moments of brilliance, but also tons of plot holes and continuity flubs that do WAY more to hurt the franchise than simply having a movie that’s a different tone from the rest.

    I’d rank ’em:

    1) X2 (unequivocally the best of the bunch)
    2) X-Men (the audition tape for X2)
    3) The Wolverine (almost a perfect Wolverine movie)
    4) X-Men: First Class (half perfect, half crap)
    5) X-Men 3 (neither perfect nor crap — just uninspired and lazy)
    6) X-Men Origins: Wolverine (whoooaa nelly)
