so this is what it feels like

Logan is bar-none one of the best superhero films I have ever experienced -- or, at least, it's one of my favorite superhero films, which is not something I thought I'd ever say about a Fox movie (short of Fox figuring out how to make a Fantastic Four vehicle where Doctor Doom is actually the despotic science-wizard ruler of a small European country). I knew I'd be a little biased going into it, because Laura Kinney is on my god tier of Marvel characters, but shit that was a good movie.

I think it falls into the same category of superhero films as Guardians or Iron Man or even Deadpool; the writers and director and lead actors all had a particular story they wanted to tell and a particular tone they wanted to capture, and they were allowed to pursue that vision without undue interference from the studio (and, in some cases, were willing to fight to be allowed to pursue that vision). The results are striking because they're specific rather than broad.

Anyway, this one is definitely going in the buy pile, and I don't even own Captain America: Civil War, which is definitely one of the better Iron Man movies out there.
