Three sentence movie reviews: Logan
This will go down in my own personal movie history as the superhero movie that demoted superhero movies to second-run priority status.* It turns out what I’ve been enjoying about superhero movies is their PG-style violence; this move was chock-full of full-on R-rated violence that I did not enjoy at all. Post-movie discussion led us to the interesting conclusion that Wolverine is our favorite X-Man character, but is only interesting when he’s part of an ensemble cast.**
Where watched: Regal City Center Stadium 12 with Matt.
*Not completely this movie’s fault. Deadpool and Antman helped.
**I’ve seen all the Wolverine movies and they are all sort of “eh.” Even this one, with great acting by both Jackman and Dafne Keen, not to mention Stephen Merchant.
I just wanted it to be a standalone of Logan Echols in his Navy Whites. 🙂 Hee hee. I could go for that!
Yes. That would be a different kind of Logan movie.
My love of superhero movies has definitely waned in recent years, to the point that I gave up on the X-Men franchise and any X-Men related movies. Other than you, everyone I know who saw Logan loved it though. Not enough to tempt me.
I am definitely in the minority on this one. But it is what it is.
We were just in Bend for a short vacation and the movies at McMenamins changed over for the new week. We walked by and I said, “oh, Logan is playing!” Matt made an annoyed noise. We are compatible in that way.
