Logan (2017)

Tonight my subwoofer got a serious workout as I watched Logan on bluray. I am sick of comic book movies (though I have to admit Wonder Woman easily pierced my defences), but I've always liked Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. Unlike most sort-of-safe-for-kids comic book movies, this one is dark and desperate and very violent, definitely not for kids to watch, though it does have kids in it: kids doing terrible, awful, horrible things in awesome and fantastical ways (I especially liked the freeze-breath girl). I would have made the movie longer, with more for the group of kids to do in the story arc other than simply fight. But anyway, I liked the gritty, dirty, human desperation that's usually covered by spandex.
