‘Logan’ Review: Hugh Jackman’s Final Wolverine Movie Comes To a Brutal, Beautiful and Somber Ending

Hands down, this is the best X-Men or X-men related film that has been made to date and unquestionably, the Wolverine movie, we’ve all been waiting for.  Feeling more like a western rather than a comic book adaptation, film director James Mangold (The Wolverine3:10 To Yuma, Copland), brings us a visceral, violent, emotional and arguably, the most ambitious one since Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.

The movie truly elevates the superhero genre to new heights—and along with Deadpool, could set off a chain reaction of R-rated superhero movies being flooded into theaters.  That strategy would probably work with certain comic book characters; however, I think the PG-13 rating should remain the sweet spot for movie studios.  With that being said, let’s get to the good stuff.
Before you venture on, I want to forewarn you that if you haven’t seen the movie yet and wish to see it with a completely fresh perspective, I’d stop here… there are some minor spoilers ahead.

By now, many of you probably heard about Split, the latest offering from M. Night Shyamalan which had it’s world premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX last year in September 2016.  The festival is the largest genre film showcase in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action and other fantastic movies from all around the world.  With that being said, it’s safe to say that Shyamalan has returned to form in full force in his latest and quite unnerving psychological thriller, Split.

Marvel’s Final Trailer To ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Featuring Spider-Man!

So Marvel gave us the second trailer to ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and a first look at the newest variant of Spider-Man, the version that will connect to a solo Spider-Man film co-produced by Sony’s Amy Pascal and Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige. With Civil War being the biggest Marvel movie to date, the brand new trailer looks absolutely fantastic!  Black Panther in action is amazing and long overdue, the tension between Cap and Tony is intensely, self-evident and last but not least, we got Spider-Man swinging into the MCU!  But of course–as if with all superhero movies, you’re going to get a broad range of reactions from ordinary movie-goers, sacrificial geeks and die-hard fanboys.  To some, the suit looks like someone in the design department had a bit too much funny with the CGI effects.  While others instantly recognized and welcomed the Silver Age-inspired design.  As far as Spidey’s suit is concerned, I’m just hoping that it’s not the finished product.  I mean he does look a little weird… but hopefully, the suit will be a bit more polished by the time the movie rolls around this coming May.
