Boba Fett! Boba Fett! Where?

boba-fett-solo-movie-star-warsNot even 24 hours into the release of Solo, Lucasfilm and Disney announced one of their next upcoming projects: the long rumored Boba Fett film. The Mandalorian bounty hunter has long been a fan-favorite, and despite his very limited screen time, he’s on a crap ton of merch, so it makes sense that he’d be the next character to get a spin off. While there’s no real need for him to get a starring role (the mystery is pretty much gone after the prequel trilogy), the choice for the director is what has me really interested: James Mangold.

The World of Logan

By now you probably are all aware of my thoughts on Logan, the final movie to star Hugh Jackman as Wolverine (if you didn’t, read my review. I’ll wait). It’s a superbly haunting movie that stays with you, and gets better the more you see it. Director James Mangold and Hugh Jackman crafted the perfect send off for Wolverine, and created a film that simply couldn’t be done at any other point in the X-Men franchise’s history.

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrooke

Directed by: James Mangold

MINOR SPOILERS

Very few times we get a comic book movie that not only defines the genre, it elevates it to a whole other level. The Dark Knight did this, as did The Avengers (and some could say Winter Soldier or Guardians of the Galaxy, or really any Marvel Studios major release). Well, we can now add another film to that list, because I can honestly say that Logan, the final film to star Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, is one of those films. It’s somber and hopeful, as well as violent and heartfelt. For a final bow, Jackman and director James Mangold pulled out all the stops, and crafted a film that doesn’t feel like anything else in the stable of X-Men films by Fox. Read the rest of this entry

A New World, A New Logan

landscape-1484835387-screen-shot-2017-01-19-at-141255One of my most anticipated movies of 2017 is Logan. The last movie featuring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine truly looks like it could be the type of Superhero movie that elevates the genre, like The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 2, and The Avengers have done. It has a very unique mood and tone judging by the trailers, and in all honesty, I think it could even get nominated for some awards when the time comes.

However, there is one weird thing that sticks out with Logan, and it has to do with the ever-changing timeline of Fox’s franchise. Read the rest of this entry

The Man Called Logan

cuaiczwueaaid_w-jpg-largeAt long last, we finally have some information on the final Wolverine movie. It’s been some time since we had any real news about the movie, and with the March release date coming up, many of us were wondering if we’d EVER get a trailer, pictures, or even a synopsis on Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Logan. Well, we’ve finally gotten some info on the movie, and it’s…different. Read the rest of this entry
