Movies on Disney Plus: Logan

Logan might just be the most epic Marvel movie of all time. The 2017 film was directed by James Mangold and serves as the finale of the Wolverine saga in the X-Men universe. Set in the future where mutants are almost extinct, we follow the titular character, played by the talented Hugh Jackman, who’s struggling. But everything changes when he meets a young girl named Laura, a mutant who possesses similar powers to his.

This one is definitely a departure from previous X-Men movies, as it’s incredibly gritty and emotional. The film showcases the raw and vulnerable side of Wolverine like we’d never before. The action sequences are intense and brutal, but it’s really the character-driven moments that shine in Logan.

There’s so much to love about Logan, and we’ll always recommend it to movie buffs.

Movies on Disney Plus: Eternals

We’ve reached our first “skip” on the list, readers. The 2021 movie Eternals was directed by the talented Chloé Zhao and features a star-studded cast, but unfortunately, it just falls flat compared to the other entries in the MCU. The film explores the story of an immortal alien race called the Eternals, who have been secretly living on Earth for thousands of years. While the premise is exciting enough, the execution just isn’t strong.

The pacing in Eternals is super inconsistent, and it tries to pack in too many storylines and characters at once. Because the list of central characters is so long, it’s hard to become invested in any of them because there’s not enough time to give them the right amount of focus. This makes it difficult to follow the various character arcs and even some of the plot points.

If you haven’t seen Eternals, you really don’t need to, in my opinion.

Verdict: SKIP
