The LOGAN trailer was so good it could put people into a euphoria-induced coma. Seriously. I know someone who watched it, their brain filled with what doctors call “happiness goo”, and he promptly went into an indefinite slumber. They are currently monitoring him. Anyway, the application of the song Hurt by Johnny Cash over the movie's dramatic footage had a poignant...
