    Compared to most superhero movies it was good, but that ain't saying much. Compared to any truly great movies, it wasn't that. The chemistry between Logan & Prof X was great, the best thing in the movie. The R-rated Wolverine claws going into faces was immensely satisfying, the way that character's violence should have always been portrayed. The plot however, and most of the other characters surrounding them, added up to a mediocre pile of meh. Which made the film drag. Still, was worth seeing just for the positives I mentioned.

    What a great movie. Had my feels on edge the entire time. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. They didn't waste a minute of this movies runtime.

    Logan is exactly the film I wanted. Stylishly violent, thoughtful, and poignant.

    I mentioned way earlier in the thread how much I loved the piano theme used during the chase but good lord was the entire score for this film amazing and fit each scene to perfection.

    When this kicks in after the battle at the farmhouse I got chills.

    Another piece of low-hanging fruit LOGAN capitalizes on is Going on the 2.

    We've been conditioned to receive our films in threes: three acts, the Rule of Three, trilogies, etc. The easiest action pacing is the One, Two, Three -- often verbalized in older films, but clear enough in beats even today.

    Jumping the gun --
    -- like when
    • X-24 decapitates Okie Dickhead
    • Logan takes out Rice
    • Laura takes out X-24
    • [​IMG]
    -- cheats the three count creating a semblance of surprise.

    Quick and easy tactic. Can be repetitive, so you want to mix in earnest three-count sequences so you're not just creating action porn (LOGAN does succumb to this, but after nine tries we deserve this dessert).

    I guess I latch on to certain things that are always in a fox film. Wolvie getting his ass kicked in every fight before he wins. He's f'in wolverine. Why can't he just kick ass without getting the shit kicked out of him? Oh yeah, fox needs to show an fx scene of his healing power.

    Every mutant needs to ramp up ability and enemies stand around doing jack shit looking at mutant instead of killing them. Blink opening portals, storm flying, Mexican kid throwing tank. Fx sucks donkey dick.
    All I know is if a mutant is concentrating real hard on something that is meant to cause me bodily harm, I'm breaking that concentration asap.

    Having said that, loved the 1st act. 2nd act was good, too.

    I saw it today and I went in expecting a masterpiece.

    solid 7/10.

    Definitely not a "game changer"

    first of all i was heavily disappointment with the use of the R rating. Yes we got to hear "fuck" and see wolverine kill people without the quick cut-aways, but I wanted to see some darker themes explored. In my opinion, the way Dark Knight pushed PG-13 is way more impressive to me than how Logan pushed R.

    With all the "fucks" and blood, I didn't see anything in logan that came close to the pencil scene or Harvey Dent's mental breakdown in TDK.

    Also, a lot of the characters were pretty flat. Actually, the only ones who werent were logan and PROF X. and that is only because they've been in like 10 other films.

    Not to say it isn't a good movie, but I don't see it as a game changer. If anything TDK and deadpool both did similar things before this movie did.

    Greatly composed! Excellent! Like nothing we've ever seen before!

    This post will make more sense when incorporated into the main thread.

    Why would you expect a masterpiece from "Logan", of all films?

    Honestly. DOFP and X2 are probably just as good or better
