    John Wick

    Why don't we have a thread for this? It's sitting at 90% and I've heard multiple times that it's the best movie Keanu has done since the original Matrix.



    I'm catching an 8pm screening of it tonight, so excite.

    Looks like a fun movie, but he seems like a Frank Castle knock off

    It's pretty humorous too. The writing is well done, my only complaint is there a few scenes where it seems pretty obvious they sped up the action. Not a big detraction though.

    it was pretty good. fairly silly, but silly in good ways and not bad. plus, the two "the wire" cameos made me super happy. there were a bunch of TV actors in this movie, and it was neat to see.

    Amazing movie, go see it. If you're reading this and not from your phone during the previews to this movie you're doing it wrong.

    Movie was legit as fuck. Sucks that it flopped so damn hard. The action scenes were incredible.

    Flopped how? Revenue? RT rating is good.

    Remember, this movies biggest expense was probably willam Dafoe and Keanu Reeves, it doesn't have to make much to be a huge profit success.

    It will end up with around $14/15m which honestly isn't terrible for this time of year.

    it's tracking for a 15m weekend, which is above estimates and is very good for a non-franchise rated R action film

    Man seeing Theon Greyjoy kill Neo's dog, followed by Neo going ape shit the rest of the film. Fucking amazing. It also feels like it was sorta setup as a franchise. I wonder if the Continental will come into play again or if we'll see more of the killer underworld.

    This movie kinda reminded me a Smoking Aces a little bit, minus the crazy assassins.
