I took the day off yesterday, for an appointment initially, but also the aim to use the time following to catch a flick. The sadness in me is of hearing of a colleague or friend seeing a film on opening night, and if I half-want to see it, I don't want to hear about it from them. So, on Monday I was told that a workmate was to see Logan on Wednesday eve. I was very tired yesterday, and just wanted to be at home really, but my unquenchable desire to be an early viewer meant me waddling wearily to a Vue, and see it. The annoying thing is, I come to work today, ask the colleague what he thought of it, only for him to tell me he didn't go. Where's the good in competing with someone who just isn't racing at all.
Anywho, Logan was the film. It started quite well, and I enjoyed it being a '15' and gruesome and gritty, but I wasn't hugely connected to it. It didn't feel like a perfect evolution to how things are in 10 years, with Logan's approaching decrepitude. And some bits had the Marvel corniness that they cannot allow not to be in there, it seems. It had a Terminator 2 feel to it at times. Which doesn't make it bad. I just was thinking of whilst they are on the road. Overall, it was ok, but I got a bit bored, and the voice of the girl he's saving, when it finally comes out, is shriekily grating. I also disapprove of Professor X being sweary, and Stephen Merchant being in there. But, as I said, it weren't bad. I think in some ways I think I've had just about enough of Wolverine films. And Jackman as him.
