Logan Leaves a Mark on Wolverine’s Legacy

According to actor Hugh Jackman, Logan, will be his tenth and final appearance as the beloved X-Men character, Wolverine.

While I don’t believe that Jackman is completely finished playing the Marvel mutant, the actor is stepping away from the character for some time. Regardless if he reprises the role or not, this film is a near-perfect send-off for the actor and his character.

Logan follows a beaten-down Wolverine, in a near future where mutants are nearly extinct, who is hiding on the Mexican border caring for an ill Professor X (Patrick Stewart). However, his plans quickly change when a young mutant, named Laura (Dafne Keen), shows up and needs their help.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

**The following review doesn’t reveal any Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spoilers except a brief synopsis and some details revealed in the trailers **

Ever since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was announced at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, the world has been waiting to see the battle of a lifetime. Nearly three years later, people can now see the Dark Knight go one on one with the Man of Steel on the silver screen for the first time, thanks to director Zack Snyder. Snyder, in a way, has been chosen to lead Warner Bros. with their DC Comics film series. He directed this movie’s predecessor Man of Steel (2013), and will direct the upcoming Justice League films as well as produce Suicide Squad, The Flash, and Aquaman. It’s an interesting choice based on the fact that Snyder is quite the polarizing filmmaker; many critics and fans haven’t approved his work in some time. In fact, Man of Steel was met with a lot of criticism, hence why they didn’t make another solo Superman movie. Instead, they had to add Batman because he is a box office draw. Regardless, this is the beginning of what is to come from DC and Warner Bros., and the tone will be set by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The movie follows the final events from Man of Steel when Superman (Henry Cavill) battle with General Zod (Michael Shannon) nearly destroyed everything in sight in the city of Metropolis. However, the audience is given a different perspective in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We see the events through the eyes of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), who sees his building destroyed, in which some of his employees perish during the brawl. Wayne (who is secretly the Batman) now believes Superman is a force that has to be dealt with, because though he is seemingly doing good, he could “burn this whole place down” and the world would have to watch.

Fantastic Four Falls Flat

Fantastic Four is a reboot of a failed franchise that started in 2005. That movie suffered from a boring storyline and not-so-great acting. The 2015 reboot isn’t much of an improvement. I had hopes for this movie, not only because of the cast but because of the direction I believed it was taking. Boy, oh boy, was I wrong. This movie offers nothing memorable and it just boring.

Fantastic Four follows four young outsiders that teleport to an alternate and dangerous dimension that alters their physical form in marvelous ways. There is Reed Richards (Miles Teller), who has the ability to stretch his body to shocking lengths and shapes. There is Sue Storm (Kate Mara) who can turn invisible and create and harness force fields. Her brother Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) can ignite himself into flames and fly. Then, there is Reed’s best friend Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) has rock-like flesh and has incredible strength.

Ant-Man Movie Review & Film Summary

Ant-Man is a movie that on paper might not seem to have grand appeal. A man who can shrink and communicate with ants. That’s why Ant-Man isn’t a common household name like Iron Man or Captain America. Now, to all my comic book fanatics don’t freak out I’m sure you’ve always known of the character. But someone who isn’t an avid comic book reader, probably doesn’t know much about him. With Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel has shown the world they don’t need the most popular property to make a successful movie.

This film is no different. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), hits another one out of the park with its latest installment. It is fresh and funny. It’s off-beat, and like Guardians, it will be a big hit with Marvel fans even though it isn’t focus on their most popular character. It is one of the better Marvel movies, now that I think of it. I even enjoyed this movie more than Avengers: Age of Ultron which appeared in theaters earlier this year.
