            Marvelette Missives – Hulk

            Marvelette Missives – Hulk

            Big things happened in the Marvel Universe late last year with Civil War II. In case you missed it, much like the original Civil War, all the Marvel heroes were at odds with each other, this time over the ability to stop or prepare for attacks and catastrophes before they happened (there’s an inhuman “seer” involved). Of course, the camps were “yes, this is great, let’s do it” vs “no, this is bad, these people have done nothing wrong yet”.  More

                      Kong: Skull Island Non-Spoiler Review!

                      Kong: Skull Island Non-Spoiler Review!

                      Written by Jason Brigger

                      Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts

                      Writers: Dan Gilroy, Max Borenstein, Derek Connolly, and John Gatins

                      Starring: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, and Brie Larson

                      Kong: Skull Island marks the triumphant return of King Kong to the theater for the first time since 2005 when Peter Jackson thought it was a good idea for a giant ape to ice skate with a damsel in distress, much to the chagrin of critics and audiences everywhere.  This Kong doesn’t have time for ice skating or long walks around New York City because he’s got to protect his home from underground lizard hybrids, birds that can saw a man in half and even humans who feel Kong would look good over their mantle.

                      Kong: Skull Island is set in the year 1973, or more accurately the very day that America was pulling out from the Vietnam War, and the last chance for secretive agency of Monarch (from Godzilla) and scientist Bill Randa (John Goodman) to talk the U.S. government into a “mapping and navigation” mission on an uncharted and until just recently, unknown island in the South Pacific.  Randa recruits a tracker named James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston), photographer Mason Weaver (Brie Larson), and military leader Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) and his fellow soldiers to complete his mission but unknown to everyone but Randa, a giant ape has other plans.  After Kong strikes down every helicopter in the squad, the survivors must navigate the dangers of the island to reach their rendezvous point in three days to get off a literal Hell on Earth.

                                    Logan Film Review (Non-Spoiler)!

                                    Written by Jason Brigger

                                    Directors: James Mangold

                                    Writers: James Mangold, Scott Frank and Michael Green

                                    Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant and Dafne Keen

                                    Logan slashes its way into theaters this weekend and Fox and Marvel finally gives the fans of the X-Men the tale they have wanted to see for years.  Logan, as it should be evident by the R rating, is not for children and is a beautifully violent, head-rolling (literally!) and well-written story that gives Hugh Jackman a film worthy of letting Wolverine ride off into the sunset.  

                                    Logan is set in the year 2029 when mutants are either dead or in hiding and no longer a part of everyday society.  Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) watches after Professor X (Patrick Stewart) in an abandoned silo in Mexico with the assistance of Caliban, played by a returning Stephen Merchant after a brief role in the previous X-Men film, Apocalypse.  Logan resorts to being a limo driver that  knows his time is coming to an end as his body is not healing as quick as it used due to the adamantium that replaced his bones is now poisoning him.  Logan and Professor X leave their reclusive life to help a mysterious new mutant Laura/X-23 (Dafne Keen) to a possible safe haven for mutants called Eden.  Along the way, the trio is hunted by a bounty hunter named Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and the psychotic Dr. Rice (Richard E. Grant) who enjoys experimenting on children in an attempt to make them the soldiers of the future.

                                    The Good:

                                    Laura/X-23Keen does an amazing acting job bringing the new mutant to the screen.  Child characters/actors usually range from “bad” to “tolerable” but Keen knocks it out of the ballpark.  She brings a quiet disposition that she unleashes into a berserker rage when she is cornered or threatened, from bounty hunters to the local convenient store clerk accusing Laura of stealing from the store.  The character hinges on Keen’s performance and she not only delivers in her performance, she makes the audience wanting to see more of Laura/X-23 in her own solo film.

                                    -The story.  James Mangold, writer of the older Sylvester Stallone film Copland, is finally able to bring a gritty and realistic (as much as it can be) Wolverine film to the masses.  Logan is filled with well acted and choreographed action scenes that allow the brutality of the Wolverine character from the comics to show through on screen.  Mangold shows he “gets” the character of Wolverine and allows the animalistic nature of Logan to shine in the film.

                                    -The “R” rating.  I am not someone that feels an “R” rating is needed to make a film better because if the story is good, that should be all it needs to succeed but in Logan, the “R” rating was needed.  Fans of Wolverine have been clamoring for a gritty and bloody film to actually depict the character and the “R” rating secures that for this film.  The battles are brutal but well done and while the fights are bloody, I never felt any gore or violence was gratuitous for the sake of being gratuitous.  The brutality serves to show the inner struggles X-23 and Wolverine have when taking a life and Mangold balances it perfectly.

                                    The Bad:

                                    Nothing.

                                    The Middling:

                                    -The length of the film.  While the film delivers on the story, there are times when not only the action slows down but the flow story stalls in the film.  This doesn’t mean the film is worse for these slow periods but by taking off about 15 minutes of the film, Mangold may have been able to deliver a tighter movie overall.

                                    -Caliban. Caliban is an albino mutant and a poor man’s Alfred for Logan and Professor X but once he is kidnapped and threatened with sunlight, which he must avoid at all costs, he has no choice to but to help the villains in using his powers to track our heroes.  Caliban provides the few moments of levity and humor and fans will appreciate Mangold bringing the mutant back after his brief role in the last X-Men film.

                                    -Pierce. Pierce is the main villain who is hired to capture Laura and while the actor Holbrook does a fine job in bringing personality to him, a lack of backstory hurts Pierce’s character in the film.  There are moments where Pierce delivers and while the character is an improvement above many one dimensional villains in the prior X-Men films, I kept wanting a little more regarding Pierce’s reasoning for doing what he does to mutants in this universe.

                                    Final Grade: B (Good with moments of greatness)

                                    Logan is one of the better X-Men films in a franchise that sorely needs a hit.  Logan is everything that fans of the comic want and Mangold should be given keys to the X-Men film universe for making a film that will resonate with non-fans of the comic.  The film has moments, even periods, of greatness and while the film is very well made, there are moments that stop it from being a true classic.
