Logan Discussion (SPOILERS)


#1

Opens in the UK/Ireland on Tuesday night, and in the US on Friday.

The Tuesday night showings are too late for me, but I’ll see it sometime on Wednesday. Expectations are high.


#2

I’ll see it Friday or Saturday.


#3

It’s getting very strong reviews from the right people. I’m quietly confident.


#4



#5

Saw it last night. It’s perfect! The Wolverine film we’ve all been waiting for.


#6

Well played to the cinemas that are running 10:23 showings tonight.


#7

Just got back from this. Fantastic. Probably the best x men movie and unarguably the best wolverine solo film (thought that’s not exactly a stretch)

It was genuinely emotionally affecting too, which is a tough ask when you’re also slashing people through the neck

18/18 adamantium claws


#8

18?

That’s 4 more adamantium claws than I was expecting…


#9

#10

It’s possible I miscounted :slight_smile:


#11

Also, what were the 14 you counted?


#12

6 on Logan, 8 on Laura, no?

Bear in mind, I haven’t actually seen the film, so if this is somehow an incredible spoiler I’ll walk away slowly.


#13

Worry not. 3 Solo Wolverine films , 3x6 =18

Now for an actual, please don’t read if you want to remain pure, spoiler:

(3x2)+((2+1)x2) +(3x2)=18


#14

Holy crap. That was awesome!


#15

I saw it, so I’ll be careful about spoilers for a few days, until after the weekend.

It’s good. It advances the movie superhero genre a bit, and everyone in it does well.

I’m not sure what I was expecting? Probably something more arty. This isn’t as off beat as ‘Looper’ for example, which took a standard scifi concept and then came at it from the side.

This is a standard thriller in many ways, only instead of an ex-spy, ex-solider or ex-cop on the run it’s an ex-X-Man.

It’s not the comic, not even a little bit, but on it’s own terms it’s a good film. Definitely one I’ll watch again.


#16

I’m doing the same.

I felt it was very much a Western and I think that was intentional through the Shane lampshading. It almost reminded me of No Country For Old Men in some areas (albeit a very ‘diet’ version).

I also think the central performances were very strong and the script was excellent. Probably the best dialog in an X-Men/Wolverine film, that’s for sure (bar Deadpool).

Incidentally, what did you think of the two funeral scenes.


#17

A bit, but Westerns have left a mark on the genres that took their place. There were some direct connections that were threaded in for a good reason, but beyond that it’s more of a modern action thriller to me.

Strong, but the film could use a little more time on the first one maybe? The second was better.

The cinema was full, on a Wednesday night, so I think this is going to live up to Fox’s box office hopes. Trying to read the room is tricky, but I think most people got onboard with the way the story played out. Word of mouth (outside forums like this) should be good.


#18

I can see what you mean, but I think the delayed reaction at the car made the whole thing very true to character.

I agree, I definitely think this will do serious money. There was two teenagers at my showing who didn’t like it but I think they will be firmly in the minority, everyone else will sing its praises. I wish I had’ve seen it in a busier showing (I was at an afternoon one). I may go again, there’s some scenes I’m definitely looking forward to watching again more closely.


#19

That final moment was perfect. I thought they were going to throw it all away, but no they nailed it.

Not sure how much I liked it overall, though there were certainly some great scenes.
Release a black and white edition, dammit!


#20

Have my ticket. Tomorrow at 7pm.
