  • I have been gifing Logan like a crazy person. The above, I decided, is the most beautiful moment in the movie. And ironically he is putting clothes ON in it.
  • (to be fair there was this long slow shot of his chest right before that. I just made noises while typing that sentence.)
  • It's my avatar on every message board I post on. It's insanely distracting.
  • I gifed the glasses of ovaries doom.
  • I gifed the swearing.
  • I gifed this sad shit.
  • I cannot stop. I'm even taking requests. I'm like a porn peddler.

    Visual Parallels: Logan + Mad Max: Fury Road

    By Sati. Wednesday, May 17, 2017 , , 26 Comments

    It's almost too perfect. Mad Max: Fury Road is my favorite movie from 2015 while Logan is my favorite in 2017. I do realize it's May but in my experience we only get one masterpiece per year. And Logan is that masterpiece. It's not just well done and beautifully acted film with wonderfully crafted story at the center of it, but it also truly stays with you. Just like Fury Road did.

  • Hugh and Dafne won Best Duo during MTV TV and Movie Awards and it was the most adorable thing ever...well, the most adorable thing since Hugh fed that baby kangaroo and put the video of it on his instagram.
  • Sir, can you stop being adorable for 5 seconds so I can catch my breath?

  • (I don't know if you guys know how much time these posts take to write but I start them on Saturday and have them in draft entire week and every time I see something to add, I do that. But still on Friday it takes a lot of time to prepare the post to publish. I have been editing this motherfucker for 5h now and every time I think I'm done something new shows up on my twitter feed and I need to change it. No more. I don't care what happens. I'm publishing).
  • Ladies and gentlemen let's open on high note. That high note being Hugh Jackman grabbing his magnificent crotch during cricket match:
  • God bless cricket.

    Logan. Our Wolverine.

    By Sati. Tuesday, May 2, 2017 , , 16 Comments

    The strong, silent type. He wasn’t in touch with his feelings. He just did what he had to do.

    I always loved Tony Soparno's rants about the archetype of a true man. Someone who simply does the things an honorable man should do, no matter what. Someone who has his own, unspoken code and follows it.

    And I can't help but think that Tony Soprano would have loved Logan.

    We spent so many years with Logan but not until James Mangold's magnificent film which I have not been able to stop thinking for almost two months now, did we really get to see him in all of his glory. In all of his strong, silent type glory. The ultimate hero, but the hero who feels so very human. In Logan you could take his claws away and it wouldn't change much. In Logan we get to see a hero which is not made extraordinary because of his powers, his claws, or the adamantium covering his bones. We get to see that it is something else that made him so very special.
