Logan Movie Review 

*This is a spoiler free review.*
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Logan definitely exceeded my expectations! 
I must admit… I didn’t care too much for the previous Wolverine movies. Sure, they were decent action packed comic book adaptations but they were also severely limited by their PG-13 rating(s). 
I believe Logan’s R rating allowed the story to remain true to its animalistic roots.
Hugh Jackman gives one of his best, if not the best, performances of his career. Patrick Stewart reaches new depths as Professor X and Dafne Keen is superb as X-23.
If you’re a fan of the Wolverine and/or X-Men movie franchise then I highly recommend watching Logan!
On a scale of 1 tamale to 10 tamales I give it 10 delicious tamales! ūüėé

Doctor Strange Movie Review 

‚ÄčAfter his career is destroyed, a brilliant but arrogant surgeon gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil.
I didn’t know much about Doctor Strange to begin with but I was pretty impressed by this movie. I like the fact that the source of his powers come from the infinite energy of the multiverse.
I also really enjoyed the many cleverly choreographed action sequences. Most of them reminded me of another movie with very similar scenes, Inception. 
The ending leaves something to be desired but I assume there are many sequels in the works. I wouldn’t be surprised if Doctor Strange shows up in the next Avengers movie or several other Marvel movies.

X-Men Apocalypse Movie Review 

‚ÄčX-Men Apocalypse is so incredibly awesome! It has an excellent balance of action and drama. It’s way better than stinky ol’ Captain America Civil War!
Apocalypse is a centuries old mutant with immense power. He’s also supposed to be one of the first, if not the first, ever known mutants. He awakens from a very long slumber and finds himself in the year 1983.
Disgusted with the state of society, he begins recruiting other mutants to become his “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” in order to “cleanse” the planet and start anew. Naturally, his horsemen include: Magneto, Psylocke, Storm and Angel. 
I won’t give away too much but I’m pretty sure it’s easy to deduce that the X-Men eventually destroy Apocalypse. There are plans for another sequel due out in another couple of years.
Oh and I really like Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) taking on the role of temporary leader of the X-Men. It suits her well. I also like the fact that a song from my all time favorite band, Metallica, played in the background during the first scene with Angel. (Fun fact: Metallica’s debut album, Kill ‘Em All, was released July 25, 1983.)
The first half hour of the movie almost drags on but then the action kicks in full force! The CGI sequences are really something to behold. I mean, it’s as though the boundaries of CGI technology were really pushed to the limit. 
Overall, this is one of the few comic book based movies that stays true to that familiar comic book vibe.

Captain America Civil War Movie Review (Repost)

‚ÄčCaptain America Civil War sucks so much! Oh, man! It’s undeniably amazing how much it sucks!

Whoever wrote the script must’ve been high as a kite. I mean, who in their right mind would cast Bea Arthur as Iron Man? Who?
Lol! But seriously though… I didn’t like Civil War that much. Sure, there’s one really cool airport fight scene in which Spiderman and Ant-man really shine but before and after that the storyline just seems stale and redundant. I know that Disney/Marvel likes to stick to a certain formula when it comes to the MCU franchise but they could’ve at least tried to add a little more substance to the story.
And no… the fact that Tony Stark’s parents were killed by a mind controlled Bucky (a.k.a. Winter Soldier) doesn’t count as substance because something very similar has been done many times before. *cough* Just about every Batman movie ever made. *cough*
I honestly believe the main reason people like this movie, other than the action sequences, is because they get to see Captain America inappropriately flex his CGI enhanced biceps whilst gripping a helicopter. And uh that’s okay if that’s your thing but it’s not my thing.
One big flaw, amongst others, that really irked me is the fact that the so called villain in this movie doesn’t even really act like a villain. He just seemingly appears and disappears without saying more than a few incoherent lines. Unless he’s not really the villain but if that’s the case then that means Captain America is the villain? Iron Man? Hulk? Oops. Hulk isn’t in this movie, neither is Thor.
How can you have an Avengers movie without Hulk and Thor? How?
Oh but it’s not an Avengers movie. It’s a Captain America movie. Hmmm. *insert sarcastic tone*
I could go on and on about all the things I don’t like about this movie but if I did I’d no doubt cause some Marvel fans to lose their retainers. I kid, I kid. (Chillax, bruh.)
When it comes right down to it I’m more of a DC Comics fan and yes I’m one of the few who thoroughly enjoyed Batman v Superman. That’s right… Batman v Superman is the shiznit! It rocks! It will always rock! Yes!!!
