SAN DIEGO, CA - JULY 20: (L-R) Actors Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen speaks at the 20th Century Fox "X-Men: Days of Future Past" panel during Comic-Con International 2013 at San Diego Convention Center on July 20, 2013 in San Diego, California.

For those that don’t know, I’m a nerd and even more than that I love anything X-Men Related. Fox started making Live Action X-Men movies in the year 2000. What I’m going to do now is rank the movies according to how I liked them. The X-Men movie franchise consists of 12 films, including the spin-offs. Here is my ranking, from worst to best, and I’m including the IMDb ratings:

  • 12. X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)

    6.7 – This movie ruined the whole original trilogy, it was a weak cop out of a movie.

  • 11. X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

    6.9 – Apocalypse looked like Ivan Ooze from Power Rangers. I’m a big fan of the Apocalypse character and he didn’t get the proper respect.

  • 10. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

    6.6 – My All-Time favorite Marvel character is Wolverine. I actually liked this movie more when it dropped. It did not age well.

  • 9. The Wolverine (2013)

    6.7 – I am a fan of movies that don’t hold the fate of the universe within the plot. This was just ok to me, interesting but just ok.

  • 8. X-Men (2000)

    7.4. – The O.G movie that started it all, flawed but still enjoyable. Well at least until Halle Berry’s “What happenes to a Toad when it gets struck by lightning” line, and the total depiction of Rogue was blah.

  • 7. Dark Phoenix (2019)

    5.8 – Even though lots of fans didn’t care for this movie, I actually enjoyed it. Plus it was WAY better than “The Last Stand”

  • 6. Deadpool 2 (2018)

    7.7 – Deadpool 2 was definitely an enjoyable movie, I don’t have much more to say on that.

  • 5. X-Men: First Class (2011)

    7.7 – The Reboot was everything that was needed for this franchise and more. I’m still salty about how Darwin “died”.

  • 4. Deadpool (2016)

    8.0 – The 1st Deadpool movie was amazing and just what the X-Men franchise needed.

  • 3. X2: X-Men United (2003)

    7.5 – This still stands the test of time, not only the best X-Men Movie (at the time in the first trilogy) but they did a lot of things with the side stories that I really enjoyed.

  • 2. Logan (2017)

    8.1 – Man…For awhile I considered this one of the best superhero dramas of all time. I actually still do, they did the ‘Old Man Logan’ storyline justice with this movie. Obviously it wasn’t a page for page reiteration but this was excellent film making.

  • 1. X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

    8.0 – Arguably the best X-Men Movie of all time (Until they debut in the MCU???) But everything about this movie was great. I LOVED the way this movie essentially cleaned up the original trilogy making it just a potential timeline. The Sentinels were brutal, the relationship between Charles Xavier, Mystique, and Magneto was fantastic. Wolverine doing what he could to save his timeline was excellent.
