James Mangold Labels Professor X as Dangerous in LOGAN

Logan hits theatres in just a couple more weeks. Thus far, the promise of the film is that this is Hugh Jackman‘s last hurrah as Wolverine and the buzz around the film has been mostly positive. Today Slashfilm released an interview they did with director James Mangold. Asked about his influences for the film, Mangold said that the center of the film, for him, “how do I construct a film that confronts Logan with what he’s most frightened of?” He went on to say that this isn’t the biggest supervillain or “the destruction of the planet, or even the...

Motivations for BLACK PANTHER Villains M’Baku and Ulysses Klaue Explained

The villains in Marvel’s upcoming 2018 release, Black Panther, will each have their own motivations for doing the things that they do. It’s unclear where exactly Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) falls into that except that he disagrees with the direction that recently murdered King T’Chaka was taking the country, and therefore with his son, the newly crowned King T’Challa, a.k.a. The Black Panther, as played by Chadwick Boseman. We’ve heard their relationship described as a bit like that of Magneto and Professor X — a healthy respect for each other even if there is some very strong antagonism...

Sony’s Spider-Man Spinoff, VENOM, To Be Cronenberg Horror

When Deadpool hit last year, it redefined the superhero game. Not only would audiences turn out in hordes thirsty for the material, they would love it and make it one of the biggest hits of the year. In February. On Valentine’s Day. Audiences love their PG superheroes, but they also love their Rated-R superheroes, making both sorts of films profitable. Then Logan changed the game again. Not only would adult audiences turn out for Ryan Reynolds in a raunchy rated-r superhero romcom but they would also show up for a gritty, brutally realistic film featuring two geriatric heroes in...

Bite Sized Movie Reviews – JOHN WICK 2, LOGAN, KONG SKULL ISLAND, FIFTY SHADES DARKER

  JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 There are few action movies that display such a unique style when it comes to delivering head-exploding thrills. John Wick 2 was excellent. It’s a stylish action movie with some remarkable layers of greek mythology woven throughout, so much so that I had to go back and rewatch the first one to see what I so blatantly missed the first time around. Reeves commits to the role and the fight/gunplay choreography is among the best in anything I’ve seen in a long time. Supported by heavyweights like Ian McShane and Matrix alumni, Laurence Fishburne,...

Movie Review – LOGAN

LOGAN RUNS Logan by Paul Preston The Movie Guys Halfway through Logan, James Mangold’s take on the last adventures of Wolverine, elderly Charles Xavier is in a hotel room, hiding out from those who would like to end mutant-kind once and for all. He sits in the room with Laura, a young mutant, something he and Wolverine were not prepared to see again, and he watches Shane, the enduring Alan Ladd/Jack Palance western. This is fitting because Logan is very reflective of a classic western with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine as the gunslinger who’s seen bigger days making a last-ditch...
