Saw this and honestly I didn’t love it. It was good but it just didn’t do anything for me. Jackman was great. Stewart was good. Script was ok. Other than that I can’t really say I’d go out of my way to watch it again. My grade: BMarch 4, 2017 at 11:01 am #1202029258
Logan was pretty good. Definitely not the best of anything in 2017. Kind of surprised where they went with the character. Don’t usually get those sort of endings in world building comic book movies. Fitting though. Left a sense of wanting for the character that has starred in his fair share of crap movies. Doubt it gets anywhere awards wise.March 5, 2017 at 3:08 pm #1202029839This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 8, 2017 at 4:43 am #1202031837
Both Logan and Prof. X died. (Spoiler)March 8, 2017 at 6:23 am #1202031913
That Shane monologue was one of the most telegraphed potential eulogies in movie history.
It was good and I really enjoyed it but it’s not something I want to go out and rewatch right away. But it was definitely the best Wolverine movie (setting the bar a bit low) and much better than most of the X-Men movies, but I don’t know if it was my favorite. Good work by Jackman.March 8, 2017 at 7:56 am #1202031995This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 8, 2017 at 8:18 am #1202032008
F that movie, way overrated. And professor x and Logan both get crappy pointless deaths. Why is this considered good again?March 8, 2017 at 2:20 pm #1202032289This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 8, 2017 at 6:42 pm #1202032442
It’s a great movie, but let’s be realistic, Fox will have other contenders to campaign for this season like Red Sparrow, Murder on the Orient Express, and the aforementioned The Greatest Showman. A campaign for Logan with no business incentive is not in the works, so it will have to gain all momentum organically. Coming out of it, I thought Patrick Stewart could have a chance, but anything beyond that would be tough. Let’s accept that widespread positive critical and audience response, along with a massive box office return will be Logan’s reward.March 17, 2017 at 12:20 pm #1202039264
I have only seen X Men First Class in this franchise, but did catch Logan earlier this week.
I was really pleasantly surprised. It was a lot more than a superhero film. In fact it wasn’t one of those at all. It was a road trip, action, comedy, family drama, thriller all rolled into one. I loved how it took the now well worn superhero genre and completely flipped it.
Jackman and Stewart were both very good. Any awards talk needs to ideally wait until more contenders are actually seen. But it’s in with a shot at technical consideration, though it won’t break out.
Very enjoyable film that was timed brilliantly as a great film which still acts as that palette cleanser you need after awards season.

It should be a contender no doubt. I want to see Jackman get a nod most of all. I think he has that BFCA Best Actor in an Action Movie sewed up. Keen probably has the Actress one too. This films needs help from the critics circles to justify it like they did with Mad Max.

I’m bumping this because this should be winning Best Picture and Best Actor.
