Over the past 17 years the comic book genre has taken the world by storm. With each year yielding more and more comic book based movies, and with these movies more and more comic book icons. While some people in the world have started throwing around the phrase “comic-book fatigue” one comic book movie icon that has stood the test of time since the year 2000 is Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. And Logan is reportedly the last film that we will be seeing Jackman’s character, and it very much plays on that fact.
Now don’t begin to think that this film is just meant to make you tear up at the thought of no more Wolverine – it is a deliciously violent movie, filled with stabbings, loss of limbs, profanity, and tackles very adult themes like depression, and the act of growing old. It’s also extremely entertaining – reminding me of Western films about an old gunslinger (in this case Wolverine) riding out on one more doomed quest for glory. This is very different from any other comic book movie that I’ve seen in the past 17 years. It would have been very easy for James Mangold (the director) to make Logan a movie that just recycles the character’s greatest moments leading up to a great superhero battle, or just add loads meaningless gore just to get that R rating because that strategy worked well for Deadpool. He goes for something very different, and it pays off not only as an entertaining comic book/western, but also as a proper send off for Jachman’s Wolverine. Continue reading “My Review of ‘Logan’”

At a press junket in London for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, Collider got a chance to sit down with producer Simon Kinberg who teased that maybe Patrick Stewart will co-star in the movie and confirmed an R-rating by saying: Continue reading “Wolverine 3 is R-Rated”
Almost a year ago Entertainment Weekly released some photos of the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse movie that featured a few of the X-Men and Apocalypse himself. And with the release of the those photos came an outcry from all over the internet that shredded the look of the first mutant. Saying that he looked like the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers villain Ivan Ooze (check out a picture of Ooze here). It looks like Bryan Singer, director of X-Men: Apocalypse heard the millions of voices crying out in terror.
In an interview with IGN Singer explained his choice for selecting Oscar Isaac for the part of Apocalypse.
There was an image released on Entertainment Weekly, where the effect hadn’t been put in yet, so everyone was – the effect has a pink light on it, and everyone got lit up pink, so people thought Apocalypse was going to be pink. I was like, ‘No no, they’re all pink. Take a look.’ I’m going to take some blame for that. My fault, not Entertainment Weekly’s. That’s the picture I game them.

This is the first Q&A question for Reel Movie News! I have gathered a bunch of questions and will be answering them here. They can be anything in regards to movie related topics. If you would like your question answered you can send it in on my Facebook Page, or email me at email@example.com
Once a week I will take a few questions and answer them. If you do not see your question one week I will eventually get to it.
And without any further ado, let’s get the very first question which comes from Bethany Lopez who wrights:
Ok, so in Wolverine Origin, how could he survive a special bullet to the head? I feel like if he was shot and he was actually presumed dead he should BE dead. I know he’s next to immortal, but he freaking died!
