Just so you don’t get the wrong idea, I don’t have any problem with allegory; and, aside from X3: The Search For A Plot That Feels True Without A Ton Of Tacked On BS, I like the X-Men movies, and this newest prequel installment is no exception. Sure, it confuses 1962 with other years that starts with 196 in an attempt to put more women in little skirts, but whatever.
