"Logan owes a debt to westerns like True Grit or Shane, but builds on them with its fanboy imagery, world, and awesome action scenes. The quiet moments--like the dinner scene chemistry with Jackman & Stewart--give it a gravitas built by seeing these characters age onscreen for 2 decades. Dafne Keen as X-23 as awesome! Also, this is a timely film that in a way comments on how the world uses refugee/immigrant children as props. Easily the best superhero film since The Dark Knight. "

"I already dislike that this movie is going to be compared to Get Out & Spike Lee's early work. It's more than a story on "race relations" (which only comprise a few scenes). Tonally, it reminded me more of Mike Judge's Office Space (the opening), Idiocracy (the fantastical and sci-fi tones), or a more fun Brazil. There are some great & timely discussions on humanity, the value of work, and how to use and abuse power. But it's also funny as hell. Especially Armie Hammer. Highly recommended. "

"Sometimes I can forgive an artist for creating a composite of their Greatest Hits to make a new work. Tarantino does some of that here, with a film that touches on pop culture, American history, Los Angeles, westerns, war heroes, defeating fascists, and watching enjoyable characters talk and live their lives. This is also his warmest movie yet (especially with his two best leads since Jules & Vincent). But it really ramps up with that resolution--as Pitt does his finest work yet. "
