Special-Girl, Quickie & Apex On Apex’s Movie & Other Stuff
So I saw “Logan”. Wow, that was a grim movie. Great though, but very grim. Like I said with “Star Wars: Rogue One” it’s a true “Trump era” movie. The heroes are pretty much dead. The few that remain have become crippled and broken. Our hero once known as “The Wolverine” now does a menial job to be able to afford drugs to care for “Professor X”.
As crappy as that setup is it gets worse. This is movie where suicide is more than a viable option. It’s actually more humane than the alternative, and this applies to several characters. In this movie nice gestures get rewarded with gruesome deaths. In this movie the smart thing to do is keep your head and let the corporations do what they want. They’ve already won, fighting back only makes it worse.
Also like “Rogue One” the “victory” in the end is pyrrhic at best. The big hope is escaping to Canada. As with real life though, that’s not a solution. The problem affects the whole world and can reach beyond borders… Now I’ve depressed myself so let’s move on.
Tomorrow we’re introduced to Female Apex Clone #54 AKA Fiddy Fo’ (X-23). She talks out some issues she has with J-Pop (Jubilee). Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
