Logan (2017) Movie Review – ** Beware of Minor Spoilers **
Director: James Mangold
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Elizabeth Rodriguez
Saying that Logan is the best standalone Wolverine movie is hardly going out on a limb. Logan is deserving to be in the conversation for best X-Men franchise movie. What makes this film standout is exploring Logan at his most authentic self in a grounded way.
Many of the other X-Men movies don’t hit the mark especially when it comes to characters. By stripping away the trappings of a typical superhero team movie, this film distills the raw, essential aspects of Logan.
Iron Fist Season 1 Review (Minor Spoilers)
Starring: Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey, David Wenham, Rosario Dawson
Iron Fist is loaded with possibilities. Marvel’s latest Defender has a built-in Netflix audience and the advantage of seeing how to construct a superhero TV show off the momentum of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Looking back at Season 1, it’s evident that Iron Fist is inconsistent, uninspired and deeply flawed.
Which Upcoming Movies You Won’t Pay To See?
Some movies coming out this year like Star Wars: Episode VIII and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have big dollars signs written all over it. Then there are poorly reviewed, critical flops which could still rake in a sizable stack of cash, we’re looking at you Transformers: The Last Knight. There will also be high budget behemoths starring A-list actors that’ll crash and burn. Here are 5 films that might be domestic box office bombs in 2017.
This year has plenty to offer fans of superhero movies. The cinematic universes expanding and superheroes battling each other is all the rage. Also Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returned in the sequel Out of the Shadows (Full Review Here). For the rest of the superhero movie lineup, here’s a personal take on how they all stacked up.
Take a look at what the Negan painting looks like. And the winner is …
Jaccendo and Cibarra’s Art want to give fans a chance to win one very cool prize: a Glow-in-the-Dark painting of The Walking Dead’s Negan.
Get ready for Season 7 with the launch of “Which Major Walking Dead Character Did Negan Kill?” contest.
The identity of Negan’s victim(s) will be revealed in the Season 7 premiere.
Could there be more than one victim? The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman addresses the rumours, “I don’t know that our audience is necessarily bloodthirsty enough to be wanting to hear that there’s another death.
“One death should be enough for this audience and one death will definitely have the affect that we’re looking for. It will certainly set the stage for a very exciting season.”

5 Things To Know Before Seeing Captain America: Civil War
This is a post that breaks down the most important things you should know or remember to get you ready for Civil War. I also give my thoughts on the new Spidey!
Rick and Daryl Find Jesus in “The Next World” (Spoilers Ahead)
If last week’s mid-season premiere came across as a season finale, the follow-up episode entitled “The Next World” is like a new beginning. A new important character is introduced and two of the show’s main characters start a new romantic relationship.
The other reason why “The Next World” feels like a fresh start is that usually a time jump occurs in between seasons or after the mid-season break. Several weeks have gone by since Carl got shot in the eye. It’s a little surreal at first seeing Carl up and about, joking about toothpaste. But overall, the time jump worked to bypass story beats that didn’t need a whole lot of screen time and transitioned right into setting up the next major arc.
Deadpool, the subversive superhero movie, is slaying box office records. To put the biggest R-Rated opening weekend in perspective, Deadpool’s domestic gross of $132.7 million from Friday to Sunday ($152.2 million Fri-Mon) handily beats out more established comic book franchises Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($95 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($91.6 million).
Deadpool is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” and he lives up to his name by delivering one-line zingers and pop culture references at a rapid fire pace. Just about anything is fair game to Deadpool’s razor-sharp tongue. He’s making funny barbs about Wolverine/Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds himself, many superhero movie tropes and even the movie studios.
