John Wick

Keanu Reeves loves two rings in this movie: his sweet ride and his sweet puppy dog. Then Alfie Allen comes along and takes one and kills the other. Too bad for him it turns out Keanu Reeves has a degree in ass kickery with a minor in shooting people in the face.

Kick-Ass 2

2010’s Kick-ass was a movie not without problems, but what problems it had were easy to forget because it was actually fun.

It’s 3 years later both in our world and theirs and Kick-Ass 2 is here and you know what? It holds up pretty well!
