Logan – #ConTENders 2017

Can an alternate one-off superhero movie be any good? Can–

YES. Yes, it can. Logan is amazing.

I’ve been the biggest X-Men fan since I watched the 90s cartoon show and then first got my grubby little mitts on a special issue of What If? Specifically, issue #9 (Volume 2).

 

What_If_Vol_2_9

My favorite comic series ever.

 

And Logan plays out like a movie version of “What If?” Logan is loosely tied to the rest of the series and is drastic in theme and tone. The film is best summed up as a post-apocalyptic western with mutants.

New Series: ConTENders of 2016

The #DLMChallenge also made me want to slow down and take my time reviewing each film from 2015 with a calculated examination.

The result is another film series called stupidly enough #ConTENders. These will be the films of 2016 that may make my Top 10 list at the end of the year. (It could have been much worse, I almost called it #Con10ders).

There will be no limit to these reviews, and at the end of the year, I will recount the Top 10 Films of 2016 in a summary post.

Simple enough, yes?

#ConTENders is the second new series of three that I will be writing this year. It’s pacing will be wholly dependent on the amount of 2016 films I see and of course when I see them. Does the name suck? Or is it at least better than #Con10ders? I know that’s true. Comment below.
