Thoughts on X-Men: Apocalypse

I saw X-Men: Apocalypse three weeks ago right before I was headed out to Cannes. I didn't really like it at all. In fact, I completely forgot I even saw it. It just follows the same tropes that I've come to despise about superhero movies. The bad guy, played here by the usually reliable Oscar Isaac, is just not that despicable and that to me is usually what I bank on to enjoy a superhero movie. The villain has got to be disliked, if you really are indifferent towards the villain you just won't be as invested in the story because all of them are about good vs. bad, which is why The Nolan Batman movies worked so well. They weren't so cut and dry. Even the superhero was sometimes doing awful things.There's none of that in the X-Men movies. X2 is still king.
