On tonight’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews The Wolverine!  Is it better than the first film?  Is it true to the spirit of the classic mini-series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller?  Is it time for Hugh Jackman to step down and let someone else takeover as everyone’s favorite beserker?  Should Wolverine be considered a superhero, an antihero, or none of the above?  Should the film have received an R from the MPAA instead of a PG-13?  Where should the series go next?  Did Bryan Singer truly understand the character?

We’ll also be discussing the greatest vigilante movies of all time.  We’ll be focusing on the 1970’s, as it was the seminal period for the genre?  Is Dirty Harry the greatest vigilante of all time?  What about Paul Kersey, or Travis Bickle?  Now that national crime rates are at an all-time low, is the genre still relevant?  Does it send a socially irresponsible message to impressionable audience members?  Can superhero films like Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy be considered vigilante films?  How much have vigilante movies contributed to the action genre as a whole?
