Many call it the best X-Men movie, but Nostalgia Critic has some problems with it that a lot of people choose to ignore. Let's take a look at X2: X-Men United.

(I'm a good guesser)
You forgot to put Walker, Texas Ranger, Power Rangers, JAG, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Dragon Prince, 24, etc.
anyways, the worst is easily xmen origins: wolverine.
So - BUT YEAH. MYSTIQUE. WHY TF DOES SHE HAVE FEATHERS WHEN SHE IS NAKED? ... FOX? ... DISNEEEEY? HAAALP.
Although, I do realize it would... OnO Prolly make sense that she did for her disguises. Eh... But then she can make clothes? Idk. XD
All I could reply was: "Yes. Yes he is."
Okay new pitch:
First X-Men film by Disney is Jackman playing every part in a Les Mis like musical only using the word Fuck in different tones. And in the end he fights Lou Ferignos Hulk
One: It was pretty obvious from the start that Pyro was going to join Magneto. I don't think you should be claiming it was a surprise, unless you weren't paying attention.
Two: The opening fight scene and, yes, the airplane scene you keep referring to both imply, at least to me, ahead of time that Nightcrawler doesn't actually need to see where he's going to teleport there, because at least once in both scenes (though it's hard to tell in the fight scene, so I may be mistaken) he isn't looking at where he ends up. The exact wording of his explanation suggest this too. All he actually needs is a general idea of the direction and distance to the target point. He's just afraid (perhaps justifiably so) of ending up inside a solid object. When mind-controlled and when operating on reflex, i.e. when he isn't thinking about it, he pulls it off with no trouble. But this is mostly just my own theory; I don't know if anything else corroborates it.
Three: Xavier can't lift planes. His power is purely telepathic in nature. You really should know that.
Four: Not even a single mention of the many gratuitous boob shots of Mystique? I like boobs as much as anyone, but even I have to admit they went overboard. I mean, just look at 16:39 for ONE entirely unsubtle example. And not even a single joke about it? I'm disappointed.
But everything else, I'm with you on. I wouldn't call this the best X-Men movie at all – if Logan counts, I'd definitely pick that, otherwise I'd say probably Days of Future Past. Probably.
