Finally The ‘Wolverine’ We Always Wanted

If you are to believe to all the reviews that have been out so far from the critics, Logan is finally the movie we have waiting for.  Logan won’t be out until March 3, 2017 but with the advance reviews Logan is presently holding a 96% score at Rotten Tomatoes.

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

The film has been compared to a contemporary western. The film has been given a R-rating, thanks to Deadpool that showed a superhero movie with a R-rating can make a money and be a hit. The film is tracking to make $60 million on it’s opening weekend. According to Jackman this will be his final appearance as Wolverine a character that he has portrayed since he originated in 2000’s X-Men. There has been some rumors coming out that Hugh Jackman is having a hard time letting go of Logan. True or not it be nice to see him do it one more time. Hey Ryan think you can get him out for a quicky in ‘Deadpool 2’.

Logan also stars along with Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Deen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq LaSalle, Elizabeth Rodriguez.

Sandy Wexler | Official Trailer [HD] | Netflix

Adam Sandler has had what you can call if you like a fall from grace. Sandler has hand some turkeys in the last few years. The movies that he is doing now are being done for Netflix. Yeah his work can be a bit offensive at times. I still get a kick out of his films. Okay so some do suck balls but I can still find a giggle ever so often.

So after watching this trailer for his next film coming to Netflix I will check it out.

In the 90’s one man ruled Hollywood with an iron fist. Sandy Wexler was not that man.

Do You Cheat With Netflix?

Netflix released data today on “Netflix Cheating”.  What is “Netflix Cheating”? Do you go behind your significant other and watch ahead on shows that you are both plan on watching together? A third (37%) of Canadians streaming couples are watching behind each other’s backs. While 76% of Canucks don’t plan to cheat, they say “the shows are just so good we can’t stop bingeing.”

In Canada we  have seem to have less of a problem cheating, with 57% saying it’s “no biggy”.  Unless you are the 7%  think it is worst then having an “actual” affair.

Yikes?

Netflix sent some fun stats to show what we silly Canadians are doing and watching.

Yeah right.

Legion -FX – Episode 1- Not really a review, review

legion-fx-x-men-tv-mutant-marvel-comics

 

Before I sat down to watch this, I knew it was going to be a bit of a mind trip.  It was “broken” legion from the comics after all. I have to admit I had not read the solo series Marvel released so my POV on Legion was a bit dated.

My litmus test for this series was actually going to be my wife’s reaction as we watched it. She’s a casual “comic movie fan” and if she could get on board with what I suspected was going to be a psychedelic episode I knew FOX could go somewhere with this.To be completely honest I can think of about 40 different characters that they could have done a series with, and Legion wasn’t on that list.

Within the first 5 minutes I heard “This is doing nothing for me so far” as the delusions of a fractured psyche played out across the screen in front of us. Then something happened. Dan Stevens begin to act….and it got better from there.

If anything can make this series a success I suspect the acting chops of Dan Brown and Rachel Keller can help with that. I feel terrible saying “acting chops” there, as both of them have extensive professional training with names like “Carnegie” and “Cambridge” attached to it, and I made them sound like street carnie. For the record , there is an excellent little dance number in the episode that I thought showed a range of these actors right out of the gate.

The story itself had a nice pace to it and I did do a little internal fist bump when the name “mutant” was talked about with a fear I had not felt since the 80,s-90’s.They gave me enough to be interested ,but not too much to think they hot shotted the storyline which is become rarer and rarer in todays TV universe. I’m going to watch the first 8 episodes(full season) for sure and go from there.

Trailer is below and the series airs Wednesdays on FX.
