[Podcast] — Logan (2017) — Episode 205 — Horror News Radio

The X-Men franchise goes raw once again with the R-Rated Logan from director James Mangold. Last year we were treated to Deadpool, this years brings Wolverine as we’ve longed to see him since debuting seventeen years ago. Hugh Jackman reprises the role of James Howlett one last time with Patrick Stewart in tow as Professor X. The Grue-crew champion the film’s gritty, violent tone and praise the performances. Give Stewart a Supporting Oscar, now, please.

Co-hosts  Doc Rotten,  Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr.,  Dave Dreher  and  Thomas Mariani  are back again this week to give you the best in horror as they recap, review and obliterate all that is horror this week!  Oh, and don’t forget — Stump the Saint! (Brought to you by Gruesome Magazine)

Feature Review: Logan  (2017)

X-Men fans are treated to the most mature super hero film to reach theaters in some time. Deadpool was more raunchy and the DC films are missing the mark, James Mangold’s Logan nails the delivery. The story is gripping, the conflicts are dire, and the stakes are more personable. The film doesn’t skimp on gory action – plenty crimson enough to satisfy horror fans with decapitations and dismemberment galore. Jackman and Stewart give their best performances as Logan and Xavier while Dafne Keen makes an impressive debut as Laura Kinney, X-23. Oddly enough, the best super hero film is one that plays less like a super hero film than all the rest. Go figure.
