What's it like to be revered as a legend but feel you're unworthy of the acclaim? Mike and Dan discuss James Mangold's Logan (2017), a movie they enjoy for its ideas as much as it's fights--even more so. How the film looks at aging, anger, self-loathing, and a man's trying to be someone he's not all come into play, as well as the many ways that the film complements last week's film, Shane. This episode also has Dan's vote for Mike's best phrase so far in the 150+ episodes they've recorded. Does Logan's death fit the world fo the film--or is it a 9 on the Borimir Scale? Zodiac, No Country for Old Men also come into play. So pull out your claws, take the shot of adrenaline, and give it a listen!
