Jun 12, 2019 | Chad Riley, Eddie Villanueva, Movies, Podcasts, Review, Spencer Williams, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva, Chad Riley and Spencer Williams, band together to keep from falling apart at the seams with this week’s review of Dark Phoenix (2019). The final installment of Fox’s nearly 20-year-long X-Men film series (since New Mutants may or may not ever release in 2020) tackles the comic book franchise’s most popular storyline and tries to fix some of what went wrong in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006).

Directed and written by Simon Kinberg, the film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Give us a few minutes of your time, and we’ll let you know if that huge stable of talent pulled out a win…or if that cosmic bird needs another attempt at rebirth someday.
