Logan (2017) **REVIEW**

One of the most anticipated films of 2017 for “Wolverine” fans must be “Logan”. The last film of the series where we get to meet Logan once again but for the final time. It’s a bittersweet film, where there aren’t much laughter but a lot of sadness and anger that comes with the film.

It’s 2029 and mutants are a mere distant memory for the world, there haven’t been a mutant born in 25 years. Logan is still around with Charles Xavier, who’s now suffering from dementia. A mental illness in the world most dangerous brain. Logan is a chauffeur, driving a limo. And you can tell something isn’t right with him, he seem sick. But one day a lady shows up out of nowhere wanting help, but Logan turns her down, until one day he decides to listen. She want him to help a little girl to come to a mutant camp that’s safe, Eden if you will. This girl has been genetically altered by same company who altered Logan’s DNA. But this girl, she’s isn’t just any random DNA altered mutant, they took Logan’s DNA and she is… his daughter.

So now obviously is a race against time so the mercenaries won’t find them and the little girl he’s helping is quite the badass when she fights. She’s the mutant with two claws coming out of her hands and one from each foot.

Actors: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant Elizabeth Rodriguez and many more.

Pan (2015) **REVIEW**

We all know the classic tale of Peter Pan. The boy who didn’t want to grow up and fought the pirates and other enemies of the island Neverland. We seen the films and the tv-show (yes, there was a tv show when I was growing up, have them all on VHS) and here is a different tale of who Peter Pan is.

Peter is an orphan boy in London during World War 2. With his best friend he gets up to mischief. One day the other orphan boys are starting to disappear and Peter it set into finding out why. He will soon realise he shouldn’t have. He end up being on a ship who takes him to Neverland to mine for pixie dust. Because the vicious pirate Blackbeard is dead set on living forever.

Peter soon discover he isn’t ordinary and unwanted like he was always was told by the nuns at the orphanage. He is the son of a human mother and a faery prince. So his destiny is to save the island from Blackbeard. He becomes a friend with someone we all know well James Hook. So this story takes place before the story we all know and love. So will with all the pressure of Peter being the chosen one will he step up and show who he is or will he simply fail?

Pan is a different film from what I’m used to when it comes to the story of Peter Pan. I like how Hugh Jackman plays the bad guy in the film. He always plays the good one and he have said in an interview about playing the bad guy in a previous film, he called it liberating. And it clearly shows he can play a bad guy just as well as a good one and hope we all see him do more bad guy roles. There where scenes in the film where they had some cool and epic moments and some where a bit predictable. But that’s how we all know how the film will end.

Will I recommend this film? Yes I will. It’s funny and romantic in it’s own way and I wouldn’t say it’s good for young kids under the age of 7 but it’s a family film (for the older children).

You see Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, Adeel Akhtar, Amanda Seyfried and many more.

Chappie (2015) **REVIEW**

Ever since I heard about this film I wanted to see it and I got the chance this weekend. And let me tell you – it’s not disappointing.

Chappie takes place in Johannesburg and crime is high, but when Deon a intelligent engineer made police robots – souts crime fell and everyone was alot safer. Everyone is pleased with Deons work and alot is expected of him but there is someone who doesn’t like him and his work – Vincent. Because Vincent makes robots too but people feel like those robots wouldn’t be a good fit. Basically those robots would benefit the military.

One evening Deon invents something exciting and new – new race of AI. This AI can speak and act like a human. Have human feelings and thoughts.  So he puts this AI in a robot and calls him Chappie. But in the beginning Chappie is more of a child and you have to teach him from right and wrong. But there’s this gang who wants Chappie for other purposes than to letting it help society to grow.

Chappie learns how to make weapons and become tough. While his creator  – Deon wants him to focus on arts, engineering etc. But one day Chappie learns how to put his consciousness into a computer because he needs a new body.

It’s an amazing story about a robot and you will laugh, cry and ask “WTF?”. And Hugh Jackman (Vincent) plays this bad guy and in interviews he said it was fun to play someone who wasn’t all good, someone who was selfish. And he was good at it too.

You see actors like Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Yo-Landi visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and many more.

Les Miserables **REVIEW**

For some reason it took me a while to see this film so when I saw it on Netflix (yeah I know) I thought I’d watch it. And here we go.

Jean Valjean is the one of the main people in the film. For 19 years he’s been slaving for stealing bread for his sisters son so he wouldn’t starve to death. When he’s out and done with it his sentence he wants to start over and with starting over he have to run from the soldiers who will hunt him down. He changes his name and make the mayor of a town. One day he steps into the factory where Fantine works and rest of the girls rallies against her and finds herself thrown out and out of the street. Jean had asked the foreman to take care of the fight so he kicked her out. After a few weeks Jean finds Fantine out on the street where she is very ill and been selling herself so she can send money to an inkeep who takes care of her daughter. Do little does she know the inkeep isn’t very nice to little Cosette. One day Fantine pass away at the hospital and Jean promised to take care of Cosette and make sure she’s safe. And he keeps that promise.

The film itself is actually quite good – better than I thought. Since I usually don’t like musicals. But all the actors have done a fantastic job, even the children. So yeah, I would recommend it to anyone who would like to see it.

You see actors like Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, Eddie Redmayne and many more.
