Best of 2017: #6
Everything from here is 5/5. Each and every one of them are near perfect. And this top 6 was very hard to order. But right now, here is Logan. The best superhero movie since The Dark Knight. What Logan does is deliver an ending. An ending to a beloved character who has had films since the early 2000's. And James Mangold constructs this perfectly. He does a genius job. How he adapts the comics. How he handles the violence and death. It all feels earned. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart both kill it as they play grittier and more tired and worn out versions of themselves.
The farm house sequence is also such an incredible sequence to sit through. The pure intensity and tears that come out of it. The cinematography. It's all there. And then the ending. It's something else.
Logan is a fantastic end to a legacy. And one that'll sit with me for sometime.
