I have watched Do FP. Yeah, you know what? That was actually pretty good, great even. Part of me likes it a bit more than Endgame. You know, pedo director and franchise I haven't seen that much of but have spoiled a fair bit of for myself aside. Plenty of awesome action and sweet moments (my favorite just might be the conversation between the two Xaviers, genuinely great and heartfelt stuff), Mc Avoy and Fassbender are great as expected. Also a much better Quicksilver than what the MCU had to offer. Too bad Logan sorta ruins the happy ending, unless you wanna just brush it aside as a non-canon bad alternate future.
I can definitely agree that if these movies were to just up and end with this or Logan, that'd be alright. The Deadpools I could maybe excuse because they're just happily existing in their own space with minimal ties to the rest of the franchise. Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix...nah.

DOFP was an end of an era and I consider Logan the Epilogue of this series.
I think Dark Phoenix is fine as a prequel to the ending of DOFP(which it was made to be). Carries a lot of themes and ideas from it, pays off what was set-up. If it wasn’t mismarketed as a totally different movie story and tone-wise people wouldn’t have been as negative on it.
Though it still would not have been considered very good with that editing and short runtime that handicapped the story.

I felt an inclination to rewatch the Deadpool's back to back...so I did.
The first movie is still great. It was a hell of a risk, both with the relatively small budget and how it just wasn't what you'd expect, but damn it paid off. Easily my favorite comic book movie of 2016 and at the time was my favorite since Guardians 1. Ryan Reynolds absolutely owns this role, seriously.
The second movie...well, it's still pretty solid, Reynolds is still nailing it, good action, good laughs, but I gotta rate it below the original since it makes some less than desirable decisions, utilized some characters less than I'd like, and overall just doesn't have the same sort of wow factor. Doesn't help that, again, I watched these back to back.
The only thing Deadpool 2 has going for it that the first one doesn't is Domino. Domino is goddamn awesome.
To Deadpool’s credit, even if it’s just 2 movies he has maintained a level of consistent quality that the main X-Men movies have long since lost by that point.
Lee felt like saying some nice things about Dark Phoenix.
As much as I disagree with him sometimes when it comes to the bad movies, you really have to admire his optimism.
Apparently the Hellfire Club was planned for Dark Phoenix.
I'm not even surprised Fox didn't do anything with this.
... Of course why not just go with Skrul- err Baku
