Picoreview: Logan: worth going to in the middle of the night, which I did. :)
(I had to, see, or I wasn’t gonna get to see it until THURSDAY, and that would be just AWFUL. So I got a 10:30pm ticket for last night (I guess they can get away with it because it ends on opening day that way), and took a nap yesterday evening, thus ensuring I didn’t WANT to get up and go to a movie, but I’d bought the ticket and so up I got and off I went to a full movie theatre with a couple hundred guys and a dozen women in it.)
Logan is easily the best Wolverine movie there’s been, and probably the best X-Men movie (comparing it to X2 is a comparison of apples and oranges, so I won’t). It’s not as fun a romp as Days of Future Past, but it also doesn’t fall apart at the seams if you think about it at all. And, of course, it’s not supposed to be a romp. Its vibe, as billed, *is* more of a Western than anything else, although it’s definitely in that rare category of Superhero Westerns. :)
Anyway, I don’t want to spoil ANY of it, so all I’m going to say is that Jackman and Stewart were great and Dafne Keen is FREAKING AMAZING and if she is not given the part of Wolverine/X23 in future films it will be a friggin’ *travesty*.
