Today the gang at Screen Junkies celebrate their 200th episode of Honest Trailers, and what better way, than with one of the best films of 2017 thus far, Logan. Logan is technically part of Fox’s X-Men universe, but feels so much grittier and different than any of the previous films; less characters, less CGI, and more “stab-a-guy-through-the-head-while-cursing”… yeah, it’s different. “They didn’t even put X-Men or Wolverine in the title!”
Check out the Honest Trailer below.
Watch as Hugh Jackman returns for a NINTH (!) time as Wolverine… well Logan, and enjoy as he battles new villains like bloody coughing, alcoholism, and claw pus. And Professor X is even older and more cranky! Narrator Jon Bailey says this one is “Rated R for Realization… that we get old and die,” before sadly humming the X-Men animated series opening credits music.
Bailey makes the great point about just how much Logan shattered the previously held conventions of superman movies in this series. No time travel, no grand finale to set up a sequel, no cramming extra comic story arcs into one film. Instead get grounded in realism as a blonde man named Donald spends the whole movie chasing Mexican aliens… mutants… I meant mutants, as we learn the expository plot from cell phone recordings.
And when Bailey gets to the really sad stuff and the emotions kick in, it’s time to call in backup and who better than f’n DEADPOOL! Ryan Reynolds puts in an epic guest appearance playing off his pre-credit scene in the phone booth. “I have you saved as ‘Fat Betsy Don’t Pick Up’… I’m not sure why I picked up.”
“If Jackman doesn’t get an Oscar nom I’m setting every VHS copy of Crash on fire!” – This made me laugh out loud in an office, drawing looks from coworkers. He even endorses a James Mangold old-man Deadpool movie! This was awesome, and made the 200th edition of HT feel special.
Starring: Logan’s Run, The Nutty Professor, Steampunk Colonel Sanders, and YELLING… New Title: The Last of Us.
