Logan has seen some shit and it has taken it’s toll on him. I really like where they’re going with this. Long-term consequences are not often portrayed in superhero movies. Here we’re going to see just what years of superhero-ing can do to a man. I’m wondering if his healing powers are on the wane with all those scars on display. And the Professor does not look too good either. They both look rode hard and put up wet and the Johnny Cash song plays perfectly to emphasize the decay and remorse. Can’t wait.
Every once in awhile a new SF film like this just seems to sneak up on you out of the blue. How the hype machine did not bring this to my attention earlier is a mystery but I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised. Pratt and Lawrence are two of the biggest names in Hollywood and I like them both and the special effects look superb. And yeah, something going wrong with hyper-sleep is a classic trope but at least it’s not a remake.
Arrival is based on Ted Chiang’s novella Story of Your Life and it looks pretty damn good to me. Finally an original SF movie that’s from a big name author rather than a franchise retread. This is what we always talk about wanting when yet another Star Wars movie or unfortunate remake of an old classic like The Day the Earth Stood Still fails to impress. I hope it’s good. What do you think?
