Logan VFX Breakdown

Since Hugh Jackman doesn’t actually have claws that extend from and retract back into his hand, usually the creation of Wolverine’s signature adamantium claws in the X-Men franchise comes from the prop department. However, for the instances when Wolverine has to jam his claws into somebody, visual effects must be employed to make it look like the mutant has actually stabbed someone rather than just playing pretend.

In the case of Logan, the visual effects process of creating Wolverine’s claws delivering damage to bad guys was more complicated because the movie’s R-rating allowed for much more gruesome, bloody kills from his signature weapons. For those curious how they pulled it off, a Logan VFX breakdown from the visual effects company Rising Sun Pictures reveals the details layers that went into creating Wolverine’s claws and a few more seamless details.

Logan Film Genre Video Essay

Easily one of the best movies of 2017 so far is the surprisingly emotional comic book movie Logan. As Hugh Jackman‘s final turn as Wolverine, we get a film unlike any comic book blockbuster that came before, and Logan is all the better for it. When looked at as the second bookend of the superhero genre, connected all the way back to the start of the superhero/comic book movie craze that truly began with X-Men back in 2000, Logan becomes the perfect metaphor for how film genres change over time.

Logan Honest Trailer

This week brought to home video Hugh Jackman‘s ninth and final round as the mutant Wolverine in the form of Logan. In what many have already regarded one of the best comic book movies of all time, director James Mangold subverts almost all the expectations fans have from an X-Men movie, including the assumption that another Wolverine spin-off will be just as mediocre as the previous two solo outings for the character.

Of course, Screen Junkies couldn’t help but take some shots at Logan in their latest Honest Trailer, which is also their 200th episode. Even if the movie was a little more difficult to make fun of because of how great it is, they still have some good jokes, mostly about sad, aging Logan, the surprisingly expert created documentary about all the mutant children being experimented on, and how the rest of the X-Men movies now pale in comparison. Oh, and they bring in Deadpool (the real Ryan Reynolds) to help spice things up a bit.
