is it

X-Men 1
X-Men 2
X-Men 3
Wolverine

Or do you watch wolverine first

Want to watch them as they are meant to be watched.

Searching on google it appears to be a 50/50 split as to the order.

Well logically much of the first couple of X-Men films concentrate largely on the mystery of Wolverine, how he came to be as he is and what his connection with Sabretooth is. Particularly film 2. So watching Origins first would rather ruin it as it tells you.

You could of course watch 1, 2, Wolverine and finally 3 if you wanted. Of course this would also make you think "What the hell happened to Sabretooth? He looks different...although at least he can talk properly and act now. And Stryker...wtf?".

Personally I'd go for 1, then 2, then pretend 3 never happened at all (known as the Highlander 2 manoeuver) and then Wolverine.

Then again I could argue that Wolverine can be watched whenever you like, because it has very little connection with the main trilogy, sorry make that duo of films. Sure Wolverine's the same and Scott and Professor X make cameos but to me it has the feel of a reboot/remake rather than a prequel.

Watch them in release order (i.e. X Men 1, 2, 3, then Wolverine). X Men 3 really isn't as bad as some people make out, no it's not as good as X2 (one of the best comic book films ever imo) but it's still an entertaining couple of hours.

I'd also go with 1, 2, 3 then Wolverine.

I'd also agree 3 isnt as bad as its made out to be, sure it's not as good as 1 & 2, but imo it's still better than Wolverine.
