Movie Review: ‘Logan’

March 3, 2017 at 10:58 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

Simply put, Logan is a fantastic film. From beginning to end, this is a movie that’s well done and, in my opinion, the best film they’ver ever done with Wolverine in it. In fact I’d go one higher and put this one on par with the best the Batman or Marvel franchises have done. The character work is refreshing, touching and emotional. The story is engaging and pulls you in. There’s action, and yes, it lives up to it’s R rating with violence, language and some brief nudity. It’s a Wolverine movie for adults, and as such, it delivers.

First, let’s start with the driving force of the film, the characters. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is at the heart of the story as an aging mutant whose powers don’t work as well as they used to. He’s lived a hard life and it’s caught up to him. And while he’s given up on the world, he still has a few people he’s looking out for, most significantly, Charles Xavier. Through this movie, you see a gruff, violent Wolverine who can be a person of few words, one who does show love or kindness. But there are moments when the shell breaks and you catch a glimpse beneath the jaded exterior and you see what lies beneath. The film very carefully does this to full effect, making those moments touching and heartbreaking. You begin to realize why he is what he is. And as gruff as he may be, he’s still a good person when it counts. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Logan’…

Drunken Rebels Podcast: Episode 9 starts with a moment of silence for Carrie Fisher, then they get into a broad yet cohesive discussion on a variety of topics. From the blizzard in New York to who is the last Jedi, it’s a random but continuous conversation. Different, but I like it. Worth a listen for lots of fun Star Wars discussion.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 52 covers Rey and Jyn as they talk about the two characters, their importance, how they’re similar and how they’re different.

Blast Points: Episode 59 first touches on the news with Lando, whether Snoke could be the last Jedi, Wedge in Rogue One, and then they get to the really good stuff. The main discussion of this episode is the 1977 album Living in These Star Warz. They go through the album track-by-memorable-track and this thing is golden. There’s songs about Vader and his respirator, Chewie being a rookie Wookiee and even falling in love with a droid. It’s cheesy, it’s weird, and it’s amazing. This episode is my pick of the week.

Blast Points: Episode 60 starts with news and recent happenings as usual including some info on the upcoming Star Wars Rebels episodes. Then they get into the Valentine’s Day spirit with their favorite romantic lines and smooth talking from Anakin. Very fun episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
