Movie Meltdown - Episode 408 (For our Patreon supporters.)

This week we continue with our Super Series exclusively for our Meltdown Club members, as we discuss Logan - the grim finale to the Wolverine story arc. And with such a radically different approach to comic book movies, we look at how this film affects all the previous movies featuring Wolverine? And in general... are we ok with heroes that kill? Plus we examine our thoughts on The Defenders and our first impressions of the new version of The Tick.

And as we all realize we're falling apart, we also we also discuss... stabbing guys in the head, Daredevil, that complexity of morality, Sigourney Weaver, I have to be a grown-up, how many episodes, Dumbledore, Netflix shows, Las Vegas, show up and die in one movie, being a sociopath, she never showed her power, Stranger Things Season 2, Jessica Jones, Shane, there's no hope, Thanos, combat he feels comfortable with - socializing...that's a challenge, Deadpool, normcore, some analytical version, Legion, big-ass cars... desert... no water, Batman, gleefully killing people, gore and gore, why even bother trying to learn how to socialize, the darkest timeline, Luke Cage, Anakin, three Joker movies, Iron Fist, you aren't even in control of how dangerous you are and living in a dystopia.

Spoiler Alert: Lots of spoilers for Logan, so see the movie before you listen!

"...it seems like I saw a lot of different people with opinions about what this thing was about. I guess... the core story is simple enough that you can apply it to other things."
