I haven't seen this since it came out, really wasn't nuts about it and I really felt that the 80s wasn't exploited as much as it could have been.  The one thing I did like is that the school felt a bit more like a school than it did before (the pizza eating bulldog?  The messy rooms, the kids everywhere?  That totally worked for me).

The biggest thing about the movie is that Apocalypse as a character doesn't really work for the X-Men movie universe.  So far, they've dealt with threats that come from a human level: hate, fear, bigotry, etc.  Even the time travel from the last one was about correcting a bad decision made from emotion and pain.  So having a proper supervillain doesn't feel right.  It would have been more interesting if Apocalypse was more of a force personified, and we saw how people dealt with that.  It would have been perfect for the time it came out as well, examine the mentality of "just let it all burn down" and why that's a really bad idea.  I would have split it into two movies too, to REALLY get the most out of the 80s.  Have the first movie end with the missiles and the mansion being destroyed, and have the sequel be "the age of apocalypse" where everyone is scrambling.

One thing I want to do is... if you remember when the first pictures came out, people kept saying that Apocalypse looked like Ivan Ooze:

I wanna cut clips together and put Ivan's voice over Apocalypse (I've been working on that impression) just to see how it comes out.
