Thinking of the title, I now imagine finding a movie titled simply Logan, with zero attachment to the character with a healing factor or the mutant family.

I think "Logan" would actually be a fine title for a comic book series, but it just doesn't work for a movie.

Wolverine - with or without the "The"
Old Man Logan
Yeah, Rise of the Genisis of the Dawn of the Rise: Origins type titles need to go **** themselves honestly. If they're going to add subtitles, do what Marvel do and just use the title of the storyline they're adapting. Days of Future Past, Winter Soldier, Civil War, you don't even need to be a comic nerd to look at those titles and easily get the gist of what you're about to watch.

Watching Batman Begins - I genuinely like Katie Holmes just as much as Gyllenhaal. Never understood the hate.

I do prefer Gyllenhaal as Rachel but I've never hated Katie Holmes either.

^I'm with you guys, never hated Katie Holmes in the role.
To me, changing the actress for that role is akin to changing the actor playing Bruce Banner in the MCU, one fits one movie more, the other fits the subsequent movies more.

Leonardro DiCaprio is very deserving of the Oscar he earned for his performance in The Revenant, I completely disagree with anyone saying otherwise.

Re: The Revenant.

DiCaprio's performance in The Revenant was not much acting, but just him actually experiencing most of what he expresses.
I think he really deserved a long-time delayed Oscar, just not for this particular performance. At least he finally got it!.

Thank you.

Never got that hate either.

I more dislike how she was written (literally just speech after speech it felt like) but I didn't mind the performance and I liked her in the role. Can't say which I liked better though

Here's one:
-I dont get the comparison between the Power Ranger's movie trailer and Chronicle and Fan4stic. Now I dont think PR will be good (which actually bums me out because I think there's potential in that franchise as a proper film series), but the comparisons are silly. It's something I feel a lot of the fanboy community does when they see very small similarities in movies and then automatically say: "Oh it's just like _______"
Again I dont think the movie will be good, but people saying it's too dark, not silly enough, or likee Fan4stic or Chronicle is just stupid to me

Experiencing the thing helps enhance the performance, feeling the weather while also acting to be mauled by a bear and pretending his esophagus was cut, crawling, being hunted.....
He deserved it.

Exactly, she was written as a wet blanket which didn't help her case any.

Agreed, he's given better performances and I'd argue that Tom Hardy outshone him in that movie. It was long overdue and I'm happy he finally won, just not for that particular role. I remember seeing an Onion article titled "Leonardo Dicaprio hopes he screamed and cried good enough in The Revenant to win the Oscar".

Yeah. Although maybe not Oscar-worthy, I think he did a marvelous job in Catch Me If You Can.

Calvin Candie was a hilariously dark character that should have gotten him a best supporting.

Yes. I couldn't believe he wasn't even nominated for that performance.


Also, regarding the Logan thing... it's a bit of an odd choice. I wouldn't be surprised if they change it up at the last minute and call it X-Men Conclusions: Logan, AKA The Wolverine.

I think Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy have both given much more Oscar-worthy performances than The Revenant.

Hardy should have been nominated for Legend instead of The Revenant.

And he should have been nominated for Bronson and Warrior. Bronson at the very least.

While I defend Leonardo DiCaprio earning that well deserved Oscar, Tom Hardy being an Oscar nominee for his role in The Revenant is overrating his role, he was certainly more deserving for his work on Warrior (I have no comment on Bronson), and even Bane in The Dark Knight Rises is more deserving of an Oscar than John Fitzgerald.

Bane is like one of the least noteworthy roles Hardy has played in the last decade.

I thought Katie Holmes was a pretty believable young assistant D.A. who was determined and even over her head. She was most likely stunt casting by the studio, but I would have liked to see her in TDK. She wasn't bad, but she wasn't great (Maggie was better) Though the fact that that new casting doesn't get brought up or complained about is kind of telling about the impression she gave ultimately.

I didn't think either Holmes or Gyllenhaal was very good.

Though I also think the character itself is kind of unnecessary and superfluous.

Even though Gyllenhaal is a better actress in general, I thought Holmes played the role better to be honest. Never understood the hate either.
