He's so tall and hansome just like Wolverine.

DarkKni9hT
01-30-2013, 01:24 PM
Yep. But I've grown accustomed to the "too tall, not rugged enough" look. It's who they cast and he portrays the character well enough (when given a script that's workable)

However, there's a couple of things I've always been bugged by. First is the mutton chops. In X1, they were perfect.... for all of a few scenes, from Logan's cagefight intro to when he gets launched out of the truck. For the rest of that movie the chops were spotty and barely there at some points and overall very inconsistent. In all following movies they seem to slowly grow closer together at the chin to the point where he now looks like he just screwed up trimming a beard. The chops should not be all that difficult to get right. Sabretooth, Hellboy, the shipsmaster in "Pirates" and several other roles I've seen have got Wolverine's mutton chops better than Wolverine. Christ, they're way easier than his fucked up haircut.

Secondly, and far more annoying to me, are his claws. I know this is going to sound like another fanboy nitpick, but bear with me. The way they have been done in all the flicks would simply not work anatomically. Logan's claws come out from between his fingers, yes? Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that the maximum height they could be in profile would be no taller than the base knuckle on the little finger (for me that's about 3/4"). In all X-Movies featuring Wolverine, his claws are at least twice that thick, if not more. The result of pushing those claws out from between his fingers would be a flailing mess of disconnected, sliced apart phalanges. His hands would literally fall apart until he resheathed his claws. They should have researched the look of the Byrne era claws instead of having these monsterous Bowie knives eject from his hands. The look would have been no less deadly, but much more believable. Suspension of disbelief only goes so far.

Also, how come there's never any blood on the claws? Either when he pops them or when he uses them? Is adamantium also bloodproof?

CHWolf
01-30-2013, 03:23 PM
Are we sure this isn't called "The Wolverines", plaural, and that he doesn't form some sort of Green Day/My Chemical Romance thing? He looks the part.

Justice41
01-30-2013, 06:35 PM
Ahh the claws are thick because thin can't be seen on screen well enough. Look at the stupid bone claws, barely see em. I betcha though the claws would come out of the fingers if he didn't make fists. or at least tear up the fingers .

Comix Obsession

The International trailer is a lot better than the domestic one, though I'm also not entirely convinced. It looks like it could be something special, but I'm hoping they don't go down the route of relying on Japanese stereotypes (like the girl freely walking around with a Katana) to make it 'fun'. It'll be a real shame if they're relying purely on the fact that Japan is 'so hot right now'. I know it's based on a comic which I haven't read, but if it's written by someone who think 'Japan is da best!' then it's gonna fail, hugely.

As long as Tippy Toes Jackman is playing Wolverine the movies will never be as good as they can be. As Long as the asswipes at Fox still retain these properties the Wolverine, X-Men, FF, DD, GR flicks will always suck to some extent. Thing with Wolverine stories is the less over the top they are the better they are. Kinda like the best Batman stories are the detective, non robin, non batgirl stories. So like with Batman the more over the top the movies get the more stupid and unwatchable they got. They needed to keep the Wolverine stories tight. Since they treat the Wolverine flicks like chop socky flicks they should have the man drenched in blood hacking limbs off. Bad movie or not that flick Ninja Assassin would have been a perfect Wolverine Movie. Just replace the main character with Wolverine.

I know Wolverine from the 90s cartoon, and these movies. That's it. I don't know how he should be handled, but I'm kinda sick of the 'serious' and 'gritty' in these movies now. Thor was a perfect Marvel film because it was neither serious nor gritty, it was a fun adventure. The 60s Batman series is more entertaining than the recent movies, and whilst I did love the new movies the 'grittiness' started to annoy me. That said, I'd welcome both serious and gritty in a movie that has the balls to try something different - concentrating on making a good drama or adventure story without having to pander to the masses wanting action every 10 minutes or they walk out. I know I'm contradicting myself, but I'd like to see a superhero movie where the genre is something other than 'action'.

Also, I love 'Tippy Toes' Jackson, he's vastly underused as an actor.

I would definitely recommend seeing the movie.

I'm not going to say anything directly about it other than stay after the movie ends. About 1 minute into the credits, another scene pops up leading to X-Men.

1. How did the Japanese capture Logan was he spying and just being patient trying to conceal his identity as a mutant?

2. How did Viper get close enough to him to insert a power transfer device inside of him?

3. Was Harada not the shittiest ninja on the planet? lol Hiding behing a 12in X 6in piece of roof as if nobady could see him...and running around on a slanted roof in broad daylight...it cracked me up. Getting owned by Viper like a bitch, getting owned by Mariko, and ultimately owned by a giant heavy robot suit. An archer maybe..but ninja...NO.

4. Why did Logans body not reject the device? And If she put it through his throat how did it travel to his fucking heart?

5. Why didnt Logan just cut the arrows or the cables off of his back?

6. Why didnt Silver Samurai just cut Logans hands off? Or his arms instead of just the claws...and make him completely vulnerable?

7. How was Silver Samurai just easily able to cut adamantium?

8. How lame was it that Logan was just getting his ass beaten by an old man hiding in a big robot suit? Very.

I don't see this trend to let up anytime soon, so Hollywood better a) Get their shit together for the fans in the US of A or b) Rethink their business model and just focus more on international revenue.

Yet, the waning interest of local moviegoers to Hollywood movies is hardly surprising. There's a gap that needs to be filled not by big blockbuster movies but by relatively small, locally nuanced movies that hits closer to home. Hollywood should look to Thailand and North Korea for examples of successful national cinema.

absoulutely...we dont have movies of pure genius that can hold its weight as immortal despite being "a little guy" Its all Flash and Bang now. A movies worth is based on its budget.

I can totally see why it didn't come out firing.

1. The previews paint a completely different picture of what the movie is. The previews make it seem like an action laden, flashy movie...which it's not except for maybe the Silver Samurai showdown. The movie roughly follows the old westerns motifs and is mostly low key throughout the movie.

2. I don't think the public wants a flashy Wolverine movie based on what they got in Origin...so when all the previews/marketing depict it as flashy and heavy on the action...the general population probably had the mind set of ...fool me once!

3. If the surrounding theaters are indicative the of the theater market, Wolverine was not opening up on multiple screens. The theaters around here had only 1 screen going with a couple of 3D showings.

I've recently come back from living in Thailand for 3 years, and yeah, you're right. Not sure about North Korean cinema (does it exist?), but Thailand is actually making quite a name for itself in cinema circles at the moment. With the recent success of 'Pee Mak Phra Khanong' (the highest grossing Thai film to date), Thailand is starting to show that it's films are worthy of heading overseas. I can vouch for at least 3 Thai films I've seen in recent years that could easily become popular Internationally. Sure, that doesn't even register on a list, but this is from a Country who before that was known cinematically for what, Ong Bak? It's slow progress, but at least it's progress, and they aren't relying on big budgets either. They are going for simple stories with well-written scripts and pushing the boundaries of their own humour and directing. It definitely seems like they are doing something out there.

This. Based on the previews I refused to go see this movie, but was dragged to it by a date and was pleasantly surprised. Easily the cheesiest scene in the trailers, the train fight, actually came out pretty cool. I liked the different pace and story, it really did feel like a western or slow burn thriller. it's not without its faults, but the actors overall did a good job (except maybe the overacting of the woman who played Viper).
