Oh dear. Seems like you might have to watch a real movie not aimed at children.

Hahaha. Just fuckin' around.

Never liked any xman movie, but you guys are sort of convincing me to check out Logan.

It's screening again in black and white for some reason, so you should actually be able to find it... in black and white... for some reason.

It's also out on DVD.

You don't need any backstory really. It would help a bit if you knew some of the characters from the comics (X23, Caliban) but it's really not required. I didn't even see "The Wolverine," the movie that came right before it, in full.. 'cause it was shit. Real shit.

Logan is kind of its own thing. You'll be fine.

As I've said, I've outright HATED every X-Men movie (except First Class, and even that wasn't great)... but Logan is quite different.

Again (and I can't say this enough), it's no Dark Knight. But it's still several levels above the rest of the superhero stuff out there. If the X-Men/Spidey/Fant4stic jerk stores are, like, a 0 on a 0-10 scale, and The Dark Knight is a 10, Logan and Deadpool are both hovering around the 7 mark. Slightly above Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the other Marvel Studios movies that are good.

It's probably a big enough cultural moment that it should be seen by everyone.

Logan was great for me. As I've said a few times now. It's basically not even an X-Men movie. It's a road movie drama thing that happens to feature a character that used to be Wolverine. And has a ton of violence.

My absolute favorite top tier comic book movies would be Dark Knight, Watchmen and Deadpool - in no real order there. Those are just "the best" ones to me. But Logan is probably sitting right below that tier.

I watched it very soon after reading the graphic novel so everything was fresh in my head. The movie came out as good as I think anyone could make that graphic novel into a movie.

I'm thinking about watching the full director's cut soon which adds in the Black Freighter and Under The Hood stuff and brings the running time up to like 4 or 4.5 hrs. Though I might have to attack that in chunks. Inversely, there's a stand-alone DVD with those that I could just watch as supplements.

Me too. First time I saw it, I thought, "This is legitimately the worst film I've ever seen."

Second time I saw it, I thought it had some cool moments, but it was still fucking absurd, poorly acted, gratuitously gross, pornographic, dim-witted (especially in comparison to the brillaint book) and fucking corny and stupid as fuck.

Get it away from Dark Knight on your movie lists. Get thee behind me, Watchmen!

Dark Knight isn't even a comic book movie. Not in the genre sense of the word. Like Road to Perdition and A History of Violence, it's just a great movie that happens to be based on characters from comic books. It fits in better alongside The Godfather, Heat, There Will be Blood, And No Country (as contemporaries) than it does next to frigging Watchmen. Blech. Blaacchh!
