Logan Review

logan-film-header-front-main-stage

9th time’s the charm ? No, not at all. Logan delivers more of the same only with added cg blood and limbs flying every which way . Oh , and the F word. So many F words that it just gets unintentionally funny. Unimaginative, uneventful , and ultimately boring. That’s my takeaway after seeing Logan. Which I hope is the last time we see this version of the iconic Marvel character onscreen.

Comics Vs Movies : Dawn of Film Rights

1

Its no secret that I am a fan of comic books and movies based on said books. I read DC books and Marvel books. I love these stories and the characters , but Im pretty damn far from being up to date on any current books. Ive read comics like Hulk , Spider-Man, Batman and X-Men since I was a kid. These mags were a big part of me learning to read. Not only that, but learning to enjoy reading. I bought comics before I could even properly read them. At one point though in the late 80s I fell off reading them, but this was due to the magazines being discontinued. I kept the ones I had and still have a few of those old mags lying around somewhere. But being a fan of the source material can sometimes be a detriment.  You know the saying ; “the book was better” .  Its no joke, sometime that is the case. Sometimes it’s the opposite .  But then sometimes a movie fails so badly that you legitimately have to ask if the filmmakers ever even read the source material .

New International Trailer For Raven And The X-Kids

large (1)

A new international trailer/tv-spot for X-Men Apocalypse ( or Apocalipse as the trailer clearly says ?)  came online today. Its still the Jennifer Lawrence show, with the so-called X-Men taking a back seat yet again to the biggest paid stars in the franchise. More often than not the X-Films have frustrated me a lot due to the lack of knowledge of the characters. But after seeing what WB did to Superman, Lex Luthor, and Doomsday in the lackluster B v S : Yawn of Injustice , maybe I’ve been to hard on Singer and co for the way they have  gone about it with the X-Men ?

The new trailer came online today, and it is very underwhelming in my opinion. Its the Jennifer Lawrence show, with the so-called X-Men taking a back seat yet again to the biggest paid stars in the franchise.

Great news for all fans of X-Men Movies

Jennifer Lawrence Says ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is Her Last Mutant Outing !!! Thank the maker !!!  The girl is not without talent, but she sucked hard as Mystique. Rebbeca Romijn was so far superior in that role that it was almost hard to watch Lawrence in those films. “Mutant and proud” makes me puke everytime I hear her say it.

I miss you Rebecca !! You rocked !!

Oscar Issac has NOT even read a script for X-Men Apocalypse !!

Apocalypse-in-X-Men-Movies

Speaking with yahoo, the actor dropped this load

“I haven’t had a script so I haven’t had a chance to look through the script”  

Some other sites reported this in the last few days,  but they choose to not mention that he has no clue , and rather focus on some babble about what he thinks his costume will look like . “It’ll be a mix of practical and digital.”

Who cares really.  This movie will focus on Magneto and Mystique right …….

Oscar Isaac talks about ruining Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse

Speaking with IGN, Isaac opened up about how they plan to ruin the character.

“Just as Bryan’s done with the other films, I think he seeks to find something a little more interesting than the archetypal aspects of the characters, which work really well in print, but for a film I think you want to see a bit more of the — for lack of a better word — humanity in [Apocalypse]; because ultimately this is a story about humans….It’s just different symbols for different things that we feel. So with this character I am incredibly interested in the challenge of finding someone that’s psychologically interesting and compelling, and actually the spiritual aspects of the character.”

for f@ck sake……..

Like finding humanity in Dracula, The Wolfman, and The Mummy. Yeah, thats working out great for Universal at the moment. Apocalypse is a conqueror who believes ALL lifeforms are beneath him . It would be great to have a villain for ONCE in these films. Whats next ?? Finding humanity in Nazis or ISIS ??

Anyway, this movie will focus more on Mystique and Magneto anyway, so who cares right. Even the X-Men are just extras at this point.

Isaac went on to say he hopes that Ben Foster can reprise his role of Warren Worthington III, AKA Angel from X-Men: The Last Stand.

“He’s a great actor,” Isaac said. “I don’t really know how they’re going to put all that together or exactly what characters, or how that’s going to work. But I know Angel and Archangel in particular were some of my favorite characters in that storyline. That was such a cool and dark storyline. I think that would be a cool thing to see on film.”

Yeah, get Foster back. The movie is set 30 years before X3 , but hey, NOBODY is paying any attention right ??

The topic of adapting comics to the screen also came up which Isaac says is definitely important but not the priority for a film.

“Ultimately, it’s about making something compelling and interesting to watch. I think being faithful to certain characters from the comics is very important, but it’s a different medium. I think, ultimately, you want to make a great movie. That’s the most important part, and then finding, if not the exact details, the soul of the characters, of the stories, of what the whole thing was. Those aspects, even if you’re moving certain things around and maybe not being true to this particular storyline and adding this new thing, I think those are much more important. The experience of it will be much more compelling in the end.”

That all sounds fine and dandy Oscar, but all the shit you said before kind of negates it.  Good luck i guess.  I know what Apocalypse would say
