John Wick
 
Looks like this is going to be a winner. Rotten Tomatoes has it at 92% and the trailer is awesome as fuck.

Maybe enough time has passed that I won't think of Johnny Utah every time I see Keanu Reeves in a movie.

TennesseeDave 23 October 2014 21:48

I plan to catch it next week.

Pretty mediocre IMHO. Decent fight scenes, crappy Keanu dialogue as per usual, plot line that offered no real surprises. Catch the matinee.

Some of what is written in this thread is borderline heresy.

Keanu Reeves is the BEST ACTOR EVER.

When I retire, I will open a university dedicated to the study of Keanu Reeves and his craft. While it seems difficult to pack this amazing body of work into just four years, most people must dedicate time to things that actually earn an income.

I am still working on the syllabus, but this is my basic plan.

YEAR ONE: Let's start lighthearted, with Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Parenthood.

YEAR TWO: A walk on the wild side, with Street Kings and Point Break.

YEAR THREE: We're going to explore the romantic, classical arts, with Dangerous Liaisons and My Own Private Idaho.

YEAR FOUR: A true challenge. The Matrix series. with Honors credits if a student can actually explain the plot coherently.

For those who truly pursue excellence (and have a trust fund), two years of Postgraduate study comparing and contrasting 47 Ronin and The Replacements, two incredible films which have identical plots, yet no one actually watched.

^^^^^^^LOL. If only I could afford the post graduate course.

8654maine 25 October 2014 13:54

LOL. I actually liked the Replacements.

I was going to suggest that the world needs a sequel to Point Break, but it looks like the movie gods have decided to punish us instead with a remake of the original.

So much for being original huh. They will fuck the movie all up no doubt, especially trying to replace that crazy fucker Gary Busey's character. Crazy dudes normally play good crazy dudes IMO. This is one remake I will not be watching.

TennesseeDave 28 October 2014 20:15

I think it's worth a matinee. Nothing original or earth shattering but it wins as an action film

Gumby2/6 28 October 2014 20:23

Looks cheesy. Perfect redbox candidate.

Spinner 28 October 2014 22:19

I'm looking forward to watching it, maybe it will cleanse my cinematic palate of such gems as Johnny Mnemonic.

I actually enjoy watching that movie on occasion, especially that scene where the guy gets sliced in half by the laser whip.

cord 23 January 2015 01:28

I liked it. Has a satisfying premise and enjoyable gun play. Cool movie.

killbop 25 January 2015 09:46

it's kinda like "Equalizer" with Sad Keanu. They even got same bizarre-mustache dude in both films.
Action was great and pretty grounded actually(none of that handheld/shaky camera stuff). Main villain was good.
All in all - it's a good Keanu flick.

p.s.
Prequel is coming out later this year

The kid who is playing Johnny Utah in the remake looks like he could be Keanu Reeves little brother.

Hahaha, an MA in Keanu Reeves would be par for the course these days.

I picked it up from redbox yesterday and finished it this morning over breakfast. I thought it was a good action movie with a variety of weapons not normally used and it had a pretty good flow to it. I would have paid matinee price to see it at theater.

I did like towards the end of the movie all the long arms had EOTechs. I also like the one or two framed shots of the M4 he was using. I couldn't make out what the brand name was since I didnt have my glasses on.
