Having finally caught and absorbed James Mangold’s Logan, the finale to the Og X-films, I find myself hoping that the execs behind the soon-to-be-released Wonder Woman and Justice League movies were taking notes. A caveat: I’m going to attempt to keep my lens wide this week. While I don’t believe I’ll be spoiling anything more than people on your Facebook feed have blathered about, be nonetheless forewarned.
Before I get into my listicle (they’re what make articles click-baity, don’t-cha-know), let me quickly pontificate. Logan was one of the most powerful superhero films I’ve ever seen. Perhaps second only to The Dark Knight. It was a straight-forward small-scale road picture that kept a handle on a single-thread story, presented as an homage to the westerns it evoked throughout the picture. In spite of a heavy-handed two-hour run-time, the film itself moves at a steady pace. »

Patrick Stewart would look strange with hair. After all, his baldness is his iconic feature.
And while he agrees these days, he felt mortified when he began losing his hair at 19.
In an interview he gave to the BBC in 2007, Stewart, currently starring in Logan, said he had a horrendous comb-over, which even changed the way he walked because he didn't want to bring attention to his thinning hair.
"I wore hats all the time, caps, especially if it was windy," Stewart told Michael Parkinson.

Just like the moms and dads of human babies, puppy parents always have a photo of their child on hand to show off.
So it’s no surprise that on National Puppy Day, social media is clogged with photos of precious puppers and praise from their owners.
Among those proud parents are plenty of celebrity dog owners who are happy to celebrate their sweet little fluffy balls.
Even if some of these canines are past puppy age, their famous folks don’t care, because to them they will always be their babies.

Just when you thought award season was over, along comes another one… Last night Camden Roundhouse got was host to some very important people for the 2017 Three Empire Awards.
The awards are voted for by readers of the film magazine and tend to produce very different results to the likes of the BAFTAs and Oscars, the focus being much more on the fan favourite films that often get overlooked by the industry-led awards. Ryan Reynolds‘ Deadpool for example found no love at the Oscars, but was nominated for five Empire awards, taking home just one of them. Similarly Amy Adams was missed off of several Best Actress categories this season despite her amazing work in both Arrival and Nocturnal Animals. Sadly she lost out again, but at least she was nominated.
The big winner of the night was Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the film scooping up three of the big awards – Best Director, »

Image Source: Everett Collection Beauty and the Beast is one of Disney's most timeless classics, but there's a lot about the animated film that you might not have realized. For instance, do you know exactly what kind of animal the Beast was based on? Or his real name? The reboot is absolutely gorgeous and has a few interesting updates, but for now, let's revisit all of the interesting tidbits that make the 1991 film so great. Jackie Chan dubbed the voice of the Beast for Chinese-speaking countries. He provided vocals for both the Beast's speaking and singing parts! Chip originally had only one line. The producers liked 9-year-old actor Bradley Pierce's voice so much that they asked to expand the role. He also wasn't supposed to be a teacup. Early drawings of the character saw him as a music box who could only communicate by his chiming musical notes. Belle's »

Sir Patrick Stewart's experience with marijuana has been very therapeutic.
The Logan star recently opened up about his use of the drug in order to deal with arthritis, a painful joint ailment that runs in his family.

Medicinal marijuana has "significantly reduced the stiffness and pain" in his hands, the 76-year-old actor said in a statement, noting, "I have had no negative side effects from this treatment and the alternative would have been to continue taking NSAIDs, Advil, Aleve and Naproxen, which are known to be harsh on the liver and to cause acid reflux."
Why Stewart chose to speak out now has to do with his support for a new Oxford University initiative that will research the medical benefits of marijuana.

“Moonlight,” this year’s Oscar winner for best picture, will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video under an extension of the ecommerce giant’s pact with studio A24.
The multiyear deal, an extension of the 2013 pact between the two companies, will continue to make Amazon Prime Video the only premium subscription service for all upcoming A24 films. However, the content agreement covers only the U.S. — so Prime Video members elsewhere won’t have access to the movies as part of their subscription.

Logan seems to be all that anyone can talk about right now, and with good reason. Unique and quite unlike anything we’ve seen from comic book movies before, James Mangold delivered a stunning final outing for the clawed mutant, showing us that you don’t need huge set pieces, a boatload of special effects or even a PG-13 rating to score a huge win in the genre. Thankfully, people are sitting up and taking notice of that and now, a whole host of superheroes look set to follow a similar path.
One character who likely won’t be going the stripped down, R-rated route, however, is Batman. Given the way that Warner Bros. is currently handling the Caped Crusader over in the DC Extended Universe, it’s not likely that we’ll get a more mature, character-driven film for the iconic hero any time soon – which is quite unfortunate. »

James Mangold, with the success of Logan, has been thrust to the highest realm of comic adapted movie greatness. Let's take a look at a few stats: ComicBook.com gives it a 88.49 composite rating (making it their #2 movie of all time behind The Dark Knight), Rotten Tomatoes has it at a 92%, and Metacritic gives it a 77 -- which is considered favorable.
It is unknown if he will ever make another superhero movie but, with the uncertainty of The Batman, some are wondering if he would be the best man for the job instead of the current director Matt Reeves. Or better yet, if Mangold would do a Dark Knight Returns movie, in line with Christoper Nolan's masterpieces. Mangold was quick to squash this idea when he replied to a fan on twitter.

17 years after the original X-Men made its debut, and the franchise is still going strong. There may have been more than a few bumps in the road, but after the well-deserved success of Logan this past week, the series appears to be set for many years to come.
Logan, the spectacular third solo outing for the character, marks Hugh Jackman’s final performance as the Wolverine. After 17 years, 9 appearances, and enough protein consumption to last a lifetime, Jackman is finally hanging up the claws. His departure marks a bittersweet conclusion for this era of the franchise, and leaves the long-running series with a fresh and uncharted future.
There are currently quite a few X-related projects in the works, including Deadpool 2, X-Force, New Mutants, Gambit and X-Men: Supernova. But, before we’re quite ready to move into the next wave of films, check out 10 extremely interesting facts you didn’t know about the X-Men franchise! »

There was some scepticism when Legion, a show based around the exploits of Professor X’s son David, was first announced. But any fears were quickly put to bed when the show actually arrived, delivering an incredibly visual and enthralling tale for fans to enjoy.

More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the super hero genre. Our thanks to Noah Hawley for taking the creative risks and shattering expectations.

With superheroes dominating both the box office and the airwaves these days, it comes as no surprise that the critically acclaimed X-Men spinoff series known as Legion also resonated with audiences at large. As such, FX has elected to renew the show for a second season as Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, announced jointly today.
On that note, Schrier had this to say:
“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement. More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the super hero genre.
