Creating Art & Sharing Love Since 2009


So, last night I watched 'Logan', by James Mangold.. and for the first time in my life I don't wanna make comments about a movie. It doesn't mean it's a bad movie, in fact everything is flawless about the last sequence of the 'Wolverine - X-Men Origins' trilogy. The problem is exactly that - it's the last movie.. how is it possible?

Superheroes don't just die and Wolverine is eternal - I don't care what your comic books are saying. Hugh Jackman is The only actor who can be The Wolverine - I don't care if you or the Hollywood producers like him or not.

(resentment silence)

But today is International Women's Day and the film passes a message that even reminded me of 'Mad Max - Fury Road': The future is female.

That's because our most beloved X-Men has a mission to save a young mutant in the near future (year of 2029). One more time, the story revolves around a female character - which, to my joy and happiness of all the feminists of the world, has been repeated in the cinema in the last few years as for example in 'Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens', 'Rogue One', 'The Hunger Games' series (books and movies) and why not in 'Wonder Woman' too! And why not in the new 'Beauty and the Beast'!

But what is changing? Why this new interest in female heroines on the big screen? What, then, is the difference from the male heroes? Simple: compassion. The character in every story has been born already an heroine, she goes after her dreams and goals, she has always sought a better life for her family, etc., showing compassion for all who cross their path helping and striving for a happy ending. In the meanwhile the male character must go through some though situation of loss - of people who love or of his own honor - and thus, through the force of the revenge desire, he can become a hero.

As I said before, I won't make comments or release the famous spoilers. You have to go there and watch .. and then we'll talk about it, okay ?!
I'm only throwing these promotional (stunning!) photos of the movie that are being released on the official Instagram and BTW, this goes to the fans - a black and white version of the movie will be released on Blue-Ray!

Hats off to Sir Patrick Stewart!
It's like the Professor Charles Xavier's cartoon character was based on the actor himself - reality X ficcion

Hugh Logan Jackman Wolverine

The wounds no longer heal as fast as before..

My heart is broken 💔

Dafne Keen as female Wolverine clone Laura Kinney (X-23)

"In Logan, Laura kicks the most ass, saves the most lives, and possesses the biggest heart. It's all about the unbridled force of good old-fashioned girl power."

I don't want to believe this's the end.. X It's just the beginning X

New Coldplay song.. Just in time for more SuperHeroes movies 

"I've been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
Spiderman's control
And Batman with his fists
And clearly I don't see myself upon that list

But she said, where'd you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I'm not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss.."
