My Thoughts:

Besides my being a life-long Spider-Man fan... I absolutely loved this film.This is actually the second time watching the film. The first time I borrowed the Blu-Ray from the library. Now I recently bought it on 4k and just had to watch it again as I had to see how it looked in 4K! Which was great! As always with the MCU I was hooked from start to finish. Loved the returning characters... not to mention all the returning characters from the previous Spider-Man franchises! I couldn't recommend this higher. Just remember this is coming from a life long Spider-Man fan!

One Weekend I will have to watch all the Spider-Man films back to back!   :tv:

     John Wick (2014/United States)

Summit Entertainment (United States)
Director:Chad Stahelski
Writing:Derek Kolstad (Writer)
Length:101 min.

Plot:
When sadistic young thugs senselessly attack John Wick — a brilliantly lethal ex-assassin — they have no idea that they've just awakened the boogeyman.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Audio Commentary
  • Feature Trailers
  • Featurettes

My Thoughts:

This is one film that does not not disappoint in the least. Keanu Reeves, who is kinda hit or miss for me, really impressed me in this one. Pure bad ass action film! Talk about starting something you can't finish... that is what you get when you start something with John Wick! With the recent passing of Lance Reddick (RIP) I felt I needed to pop this one in this evening. While his part was rather small comparatively, he did his usual great job. If by any chance you haven't seen this one I definitely recommend it!

My Thoughts:

I found this one to be no more then very average. All the best pasrts being shown in the trailer. No real laugh out loud moments. And a little on the long side for the story you get.Matt Damon was just fine in the lead.... not that it is saying much. Pretty much any actor would have been just as good in the role he was given. I actually feel asleep before it ended so had to turn it back on just to see how the film ended. Which was nothing that special and rather predictable.

My Thoughts:

OK... I kinda have mixed feelings here. On the one hand I enjoyed the styory they were telling here. On the other it did get ratherf weird in parts. And while I would say over all it was good, I am not sure it was best picture winner good. At least not in my opinion. Though I did like the cast... and do like that Jamie Lee Curtis got the win for best supporting actress from this film. I have always been a fan of hers. Over all I would say I liked it. Especially for the price I paid... $1.75 for the 4K release brand new at a pawn shop! I would recommend, with caution... as I said it does get weird in parts.

My Thoughts:

What an amazing film! I can't believe that was 2 hours long it went by so quickly. It was so well shot, so wonderfully told, and the pacing of the film was just perfect. And the film looked and sounded so great on 4k UHD! What an experience! This is such a must see film... even if you don't normally like war films... do yourself a favor and see this one.
