X-Men: First Class ~ Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence ~ [Directed by Matthew Vaughn]

“This is what we’re going to do. I’m going to count to 3. And I’m going to move the coin.” ~ Magneto

If only Matthew Vaughn had directed more X-Men movies. Vaughn is a genius, unlike Bryan Singer, who was just kind of a paint-by-number / bland set piece with downtime leading to next bland set piece / CGI heavy director, as opposed to Vaughn, who understands that you build any necessary CGI around the story, and not the opposite. A lot of people may not be able to tell the difference, but Vaughn is leagues ahead of Singer’s stuff. I mean, some people just have an eye for it. For example: Magneto’s helmet looks straight out of the comics in First Class. It’s perfect. And he literally even appears at the very end of the movie in the red and purple suit, too. Everything is set up for the sequel. Vaughn exits (facepalm). Singer returns, and Magneto looks like he’s wearing a plastic child’s helmet in the next one, and the one after that. The badassery is shot. Any kind of real depth is gone, and it’s back to the Singer show. While Singer was apparently phoning his movies in (amongst other bullshit…), Vaughn was doing this (see above.) If you want to see how you can use set pieces and CGI to the advantage of the story, I would recommend watching X-Men: First Class. It’s the best X-Men movie ever made. Directed by Matthew Vaughn.
