Day 5 – A Favourite Drama Movie

Logan.

This does delve into the superhero genre I love so much, but I consider this particular film, much more drama than traditional superhero. I also talked about this in my March Favourites.

Basically this is the last X-Men film chronologically speaking. It’s also the last one with Wolverine a.k.a. Logan, a.k.a. Hugh Jackman.  The film takes place in 2029, no new mutants have been born, and all the current ones are dying out. Logan now takes on odd jobs as a driver and looks after Charles (Professer X, played by the awesome Patrick Stewart) who is suffering from an unknown brain disease that causes him to lose control of his telepathic abilities. Then, they come across a young girl named Laura (Dafne Keen) who is very similar to Logan, claws and all. She’s being chased by some folks, and Logan and Charles end up taking her under their wing. That’s all I’ll say for now.

This movie was pretty visceral. It was R18 after all. There’s cursing, stabbing, fighting and decapitation. It’s also the best superhero film I’ve seen for a while. While yes there’s action, the bulk of the film’s greatness for me lies in the relationships. The one between Charles and Logan, and Logan and Laura in particular. It’s emotional, heartbreaking and uplifting, which you often don’t hear about too much in the superhero genre.

Have you guys seen Logan?

What’s your favourite drama?

What’s Up Wednesday #2

Hello! Welcome back to another What’s Up Wednesday! I originally was going to stick to doing these just once a month, then I decided to do it every two weeks which I didn’t. I don’t have an excuse other than I forgot. But the more I think about it, I would rather stick to once a month. I do little catch ups in my weekend reviews, so I don’t feel like I’d have much to say if I did this every week or two weeks.

Here’s a link to the first one – What’s Up Wednesday. Credit to the wonderful Shay!

Let’s get into it!
