Logan
Logan (2017)
38 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

As a stand alone film, Logan succeeds in telling a compelling story that should please most moviegoers and fans of the franchise alike. As a supposed swan song and final chapter for Hugh Jackman's Wolverine though, it fails at having the stakes you would expect for a bookend of a film that tries to end a seventeen year journey. Wolverine's third solo outing has much of the same problems as the first two, weak bad guys, an equivalent for Logan to fight, underdeveloped side characters, and a mangled timeline. Two things I really didn't like would be the weird desert post apocalypse like setting and the way they wrote Charles as a crazy old man, it totally went against the grain of what the X-Men movies set up for the character. Even past those substantial problems though, Logan tells a great character story that is jammed packed with moments that will please fans of the character, even Charles gets redemption towards the end of the film in the way that his character finally starts acting like you would expect. Maybe I was expecting much more, but I like the film more and more when I put it into perspective and put aside its faults.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast is a magical retelling of the Disney classic and while it may not elicit the nostalgic that older audiences might have wanted, I firmly believe this will become a classic of its own for a new generation. The well written songs and musical segments are a joy to watch; they never fell tacked on or out of place. There is an sense of magic throughout the whole film, paired with some of the most scenic views a live action Disney film has ever put on screen.

John Wick: Chapter 2

½

John Wick Chapter 2 continues in its predecessor's footsteps seemingly picking up right where the first left off. While it was great to see Reeves back in the role, the film certainly lacks the magic the first had. There is some interesting world building here and the straight up revenge story has taken a turn to the more cartoony side of things, especially with its villains. At the end of the movie though, you won't be disappointed.

John Wick
John Wick (2014)

John Wick is fun and exciting ride that doesn't pump the breaks. Keanu Reeves stars in this action romp that won't even disappoint the most jaded fans of him or the genre. Not to mention there is some absolutely insane stunt choreography on display.

The Departed
The Departed (2006)

Martin Scorsese's The Departed is an absolute masterpiece in storytelling and will leave you wanting more as soon as the screen turns black. Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon do amazing work throughout the long, yet brisk runtime, while Jack Nicholson and Mark Wahlberg steal most of the scenes they are in. The Departed is one of the best crime dramas ever put on screen and it's weaving plot will keep you entertained the entire time.
