Saw Logan today, it was good.  Definitely earns that R rating.  They did an uncomfortably great job with old man Xavier.  No surprise that Patrick Stewart is good at acting, I guess.  The kid who played X-23 was great, too.

The most important thing for you to know, there's no post credit scene.  They put it at the start of the movie, which was nice.

It's meant to be the last of that series of X-Men movies right? The final chapter. Pretty interested to see it at some point.

I really like that (some) people making superhero movies have realised that "Superhero Movie" isn't a plot, it's a genre, and you can tell more than two stories using that setting and backdrop. People can only take so many origin stories and "should I really be spider[hyphen]man?" freakouts. Eventually you have to write a superhero spy thriller or a superhero road movie or a superhero infomercial.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

They were all supposed to be the "last one" but Fox really wants to hold onto those dang movie rights.
Not a winner anymore.

Yeah, it wasn't a superhero movie.  It was uh, either a road movie or a western that happened to have a few people with weird powers in it.  I haven't seen enough westerns to really make that comparison, but they push the idea pretty hard.  Easy to make comparisons to True Grit, at least.

This definitely caps off the x-men movies with the original cast.  I guess they could do more movies with the First Class/Apocalypse crew but that would be kinda lame.  My best guess is that the X-men movie franchise is going to be the Deadpool show for a while now.

Saw it, loved it.  Really enjoyed a super hero movie with a definitive ending.

But there's just one lingering question for me...  What was the deal with the robot arms.  Seriously, they make such a big deal out of it in the first meeting between the merc and Logan, and all the mercs have them, but they don't really seem to have a point?
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

I actually only thought Logan met expectations, but that may be due to the premature hype.

Other Marvel:

Dr. Strange was good.

The Iron Fist show is still undergoing deliberation.

And nothing else because I can't remember whether something is DC or Marvel unless it's in the title.

Heard a review on NPR for Iron Fist on netxlix the other day.  It was embarrassing.  Sounded like the guy watched maybe half of an episode, then spent the entire interview complaining about white people.

Well I'm not entirely sure what you were expecting.

I thought they might actually talk about the show.  They usually do that, though I had heard that most reviews are just complaining about the white guy being cast as a white guy.

The hell are they complaining about they got their shows with a woman and a black guy in the white guy role.

This is oppression of white guys and I will not stand for it.

That's not an unambiguously sarcastic thing to say anymore, Sam.

You nazi.
