There are actually 31 SFF movies coming up this year? That seems like a lot, but if you hardly ever see movies, maybe it’s easy to not notice there are 30+ SFF movies per year.
Oddly, he does not list Logan, a movie I would kind of like to see even though I know it will be sad. Maybe Brin counts movies based on comics as different from SFF. I pretty much think of them as a subcategory of SFF.
Anyway, Logan is showing now, of course. I need to decide pretty soon whether to go see it. Do any of you know whether it is ultimately hopeful or ultimately tragic? I might see it either way, but I would like to be prepared.
I always have had a soft spot for Wolverine. And I’ve always thought of him as more human — ie, Logan. He always seemed like a more well-rounded character than some of the others.
So, yeah, if you’ve seen Logan, let me know what you thought.
Now, the other 31 movies coming up this year … let’s see … ah, Brin does not actually go all the way to 31. He lists and comments on 22.
My favorite of Brin’s comments: Death Race 2050: Geez, a cliché take on the cliché ripoffs of a cliché.
Something I might actually like to see: The Ghost in the Shell. I like Scarlett Johansson.
Still, I doubt I’ll get to the point of watching enough movies this year to be able to make a Top Ten list.
