I'll catch it on HBO or Amazon Prime. I liked the first one, still haven't seen JW2 in its entirety.

I know there is Wick hate here, but I enjoy the movies as fun escapism. As with 97% of the movies I see, I'll catch it as soon as it hits DVD or streaming.

Side note, I posted about Reeves shooting ability before and mentioned I wish I could shoot as well as him. Now it seems Halle Berry can outshoot me too:

I saw that on Twitter.  Pretty cool.

I am curious how it will turn out.  While both John Wick movies had a lot of very good action, I thought the first one seemed more plausible/believable.  The scene where he used the AR with an EOtech red dot sight was awesome.  The second was good, but had scenes that felt too choreographed like they wanted more Matrix style action (my memory may be fuzzy).  I am curious about where this one will fall. 



That may be two movies I want to see this month.  The new Godzilla movie is coming out the 25th.

I'll likely wait until it's on DVD or streaming. I enjoyed the first two, but as Mech said, the 1st was far more believable had a much better plot and consistency. (Which is more important than believability.)

I loved the action in both, though. I'll be looking forward to the next (last?) one, as well.

I don't go see a lot of movies in the theatre.  I'll possibly get out and see it but most likely won't until it's on demand in some fashion.

I haven't gone to a movie theater since Deadpool. The new theater got Dad bad with his agoraphobia issues, so that was the final hurrah for going to the movies (not that we'd been in years) We had thought about going to The Alamo, but never got around too it.

And to be honest, I'd rather wait and watch stuff at home. It's a lot cheaper, the food is better, a lot more comfortable and I can take bathroom breaks without missing half the movie.

Last movies I saw in the theater were Solo: A Star Wars Story and Deadpool 2, both last year visiting my friends in Iowa. Before that was Blade Runner 2049.

BR2049 was the only one I was glad that I saw in the theater. The other two? I was glad that I was with my friend and his son, but I really liked watching Deadpool and IT on their home theater in their basement a lot more.

I saw the first one.  I did "get it"  when the criminals killed his dog;  I'd go on a warpath too.  But otherwise I just couldn't sympathize much with John Wick.  Escapism?  Yea,  I don't mind "jaded" heroes,  but Wick is not a hero in my book.   That's just my two cents.

"Wick is not a hero in my book."

Absolutely not. At best, he's a vaguely likely anti-hero, or straight up slightly sympathetic villain.

And yeah, *expletive deleted*ck with my dog, I'm coming after you, and I'm bringing hell with me.

He's clearly not a hero. But he's a bad guy* who's killing worse guys.

Therefore, I cheer for him.



*Who tried to give up being a bad guy until they pulled him back in. So, still bad, but trying for redemption? Seems to me there are a number of movies like that- Unforgiven, A History of Violence, etc...

Which, IMHO, makes him a more interesting character anyway. If you think about it, most of the best characters are the anti hero's.

Tried and mostly true formula for success. Bad guy killing worse guys. Much like Conner and Murphy did when they decided that their lot in life was to run around Boston and kill criminals who couldn't get convicted in the courts.

I got involved in a project and didn't go. I'll probably go tonight.

I did watch a couple of Youtoob videos of Halle Berry training for the film with Keanu at a range. Considering that she [allegedly] had never fired a gun, she's GOOOOOD. And she actually appeared to be enjoying it, so maybe there's a Hollywood star who won't be gun-wielding on-screen and anti-gun off-screen.
