The sad fact is that the general public is burnt out on X-Men, especially with how poor the previous two films were. It's just a shame that this excellent film has to pay for the sins of its predecessors.
The Last Stand wasn't a poor film, it just killed off characters that were assumed by the audience to have impenetrable character shields, and was consequently demonized by a vocal minority.
I've not encountered a single person who liked The Last Stand.
No, you just quoted the post of someone who did, now unfortunately relegated to apparent nonexistence.

Aside from killing off characters for no good reason, which is a legitimate complaint
I knew it. I rest my case. Doesn't it suck when character shields go away and anything can happen?

the story was just complete nonsense
So a mutant cure plot is complete nonsense when it happens in The Last Stand, but not when it happens in First Class?
