John Wick was a low-budget passion project that was fuelled by Keanu Reeves’ singular focus, reinvigorating his career in the process. So what happens when you take its unique style and add sequel money? Exactly what you’d think. John Wick: Chapter 2 takes what came before and expands in almost every direction, and creates some spectacular moments in the process. The problem, though, is that John Wick now wants to be a franchise, and its increased focus on worldbuilding isn’t entirely successful.

I’ve been on hiatus so here’s me catching up on the movies I’ve seen.

I can’t believe how good this looks. Spoiler alert: It looks friggin’ amazing.
Posters, Trailers / Comments Off on ‘John Wick’ Trailer + Poster: Don’t Mess With Keanu’s Dog
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.
Japan is a beautiful country. I know that even though I’ve never actually set foot on its soil. Thousands of years of myth and steadfast tradition has long enthralled the more relaxed Western cultures, and cinema has always revelled in the deep cultures of its picturesque history. Modern filmic takes like the animated Spirited Away go into great detail to bring their Japanese worlds to life, and often this can result in deep, complicated and slow-burning plots that weave through character and mystery.
Unfortunately, 47 Ronin is what happens when someone called Carl watches a Japanese samurai classic and thinks “you know, this could be more accessible.”

Here comes another trailer for the 47 Ronin. I still don’t know what to make of it.
Did you know that Keanu Reeves was working on an adaptation of the famous legend of the 47 Ronin? This is the part where I’d tell you the legend but doing so would spoil the end so I won’t. Google it why don’t you.
Anyway, the movie has a trailer and some character posters and to be perfectly honest? I’m not sure what to make of it. Let’s watch!
