[2017] Logan [2017-03-04]

I haven't watched any X-movies since the initial trilogy (in part because I'm not great at actually getting out to see movies -- and also because Michael Fassbender [young!Magneto] is an abuser, and Days of Future Past starred Wolverine instead of Jewish woman Kitty Pryde like the comics arc did).

But X-23 Laura Kinney is not your weapon! I have read none of her comics, but have a fondness for her thanks to fox1013's Tumblr.

musesfool had posted: "Logan is getting really good reviews! Comparisons to Unforgiven have been made! Apparently it lives up to the trailers."

Coworker-Mallory hated it because it was way too violent for her, but I really didn't mind the violence. I tend to not do well with on-screen violence because I wince seeing physical pain onscreen, but this felt more cartoonish -- yes, we stabbed people in the head with adamantium claws and decapitated people, but we rarely dwelt on anyone's pain, and almost everyone who died was a bad guy we were in no way rooting for.
