“After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.”


What an amazing movie. Sequels are always touch and go, but this one was a sequel done right. It follows that saying “live by the sword, die by the sword,” and it really captures those elements. It was just an amazingly executed sequel that has tons of action in it, but thankfully, the action doesn’t take away from the story.

Bill and Ted’s Paradoxical Journey?

Have you heard?  There will be a Bill and Ted Movie, a third one.  Now, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure was hilarious!  Absolutely hilarious that I loved it.  But Bogus Journey was just a rehash of the first one, and a very stupid crappy one at that.  One would think that the Bill and Ted’s Franchise was done and over it.  But it’s been roughly … Continue reading Bill and Ted’s Paradoxical Journey?
