    This instagram account posted all kinds of neat old-western type B&W photos during the production of Logan. Here's my favorite.

    Here's a pretty meaty Logan review for you to chew on, but it's a little spoilery so maybe wait until you've seen it, which you should.

    Why were the kids running from the soldiers at the end, did they panic? Bear in mind they were all raised as stone cold mutant killing machines. And why did they all speak perfect, unaccented English? I would understand picking up some, like Laura, just due to proximity to the guards and doctors. But they were raised in Mexico by Mexican nurses.

    Like I said, minor stuff. The movie had some incredibly intense scenes (The Casino Scene had me giddy with horror), and boy howdy did they ever go at the R rating with gusto.

    In my opinion, this director (James Mangold) has now created the two best (or two of the best) movies in the X-Men universe, in Wolverine and Logan. Logan is tops for me.
    I saw it this past weekend and I pretty much agree with your review, Mac, but I had a different problem with it:
    Dr. Xavier's death was really anticlimactic. First of all I spent a few minutes figuring it was a dream sequence because 'Wolverine' killed him and we didn't yet know there was a Wolverine clone out there. It was only later that I realized what was going on and by then Xavier was long dead. The death of a central character like Xavier should have been handled differently in my opinion. As a fan of the franchise I wanted to really feel it when he died. This way it was more "oops he's dead, bummer".

    Pretty good Thor trailer!

    Seems like they're tying in some Guardians of the Galaxy type stuff. Working it all into one Universe, so we can be overwhelmed and annoyed by Infinity War.

    Cate Blanchett looks amazing as Hela.

    As much as I didn't care for Luke Cage, I'm kind of excited by this. It looks sweet, and it's got a (nearly) all-black cast, a black director, black writers... it should be an interesting take on the MCU with some form of legitimacy. That was all mostly true about Luke Cage too, I just... didn't like it. Anyway: Black Panther! It's less Urban, more African!

    The problem with Luke Cage was the pacing. It had an extremely languid pace. I gave it the old college try for three episodes and couldn't watch it anymore. Maybe I'm too conditioned to watching actionfest movies, but I found it unwatchable.

    Starting to really look more like GOTG 2.5 than Thor Ragnarok but I'll still see it anyway!
