X-Men: First Class, 2011 - ★★★★

I remember liking First Class when it first came out and after this rewatch in preparation for the sequel, it feels even better. A bit obvious in places and rushed in others but it's mostly effective and enjoyable and doesn't fall foul of the final third problems. Perhaps most significantly it was possible to watch Kevin Bacon without thinking of the awful adverts, something I feared may never be possible again.
