THE Wolverine

If the Ivory Tower is the brain of the board, and the Transformers discussion is its heart, then General Discussions is the waste disposal pipe. Or kidney. Or something suitably pulpy and soft, like 4 week old bananas.

THE Wolverine

...not bad.

The third act was a bit of a mess, but overall it's a fairly strong piece of work. Logan is de-powered and thus we have some stakes. There's an interesting Japanese conspiracy. Lots of Yakuza thugs made me think of Smooth's thread and whisper, "they wouldn't have access to that many shiny new 45s."

The plot itself... was never sure what was going on with that family. Could have used a bit more time to figure out what Mariko/Grandfather/Shingen's various motivations were. Also, the credits tease was pretty blatant ad for Days of Future Past, but enjoyed it.

Or do one big poo in the morning and another one in the afternoon. I bet they weren't even excited by and then subsequently disappointed by Star Wars Prequels. Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.
