John Wick 3: Parabellum (2019) (30th Jun 19 at 6:42am UTC)


I finally saw this. It's better than the second one, but still not as good as the first. The complex background mythology detracts for the simple payback he wanted in the first movie.
The 3rd movie doesn't stick with a style or theme and embed it into the viewer like the first movie did. The first movie was relentless close range head shots. This one tries to split it up into sections. The knife kills grab the spotlight in one scene, but it isn't relentless. It moves on the horse kills, motorcycle kills, then dog kills. All the phases are disturbing, funny, and extreme. They just don't stick with it long enough and revisit it through the whole movie. In the first movie, everyone feared him. In this movie, they show that many of his opponents are proud to meet him and honored to fight him. Halley Berry did a good job, but her appearance took it away from that cult film feel and makes it seem like any other action adventure movie. It would be so easy for them to drop the veil and turn these movies into an extension to the matrix trilogy. I give it a 7 out of 10. Some scenes are worthy of 10 out of 10.

I'm glad this one is good. I've been looking forward to seeing this one more than Avengers 4.

John Wick 3 was more entertaining than Avengers #4 in my opinion. Avenger 4 bored me and just didn't deliver anything I wanted to see.

I had a feeling Avengers was gonna be boring. Glad I didn't miss much. I tried to get into Captain Marvel but after ten minutes I got distracted.

I liked the time travel scenes in Avenger 4. The movie had moments. Overall though, the first half of the movie could be cut and left on the edit room floor. The last big battle scene is a huge disappointment. I guess my biggest problem is that it focuses on third tier heroes that I don't give a shit about. You don't focus on lame heroes like Hawkeye. Hulk can destroy mountains. Hawkeye shoots a bow and arrow. I want to see Hulk do something, not Hawkeye.

Captain Marvel is not a like-able character. She's more concerned about all other planets than she is her own. Her solo movie was boring. Her role in Avengers is like an afterthought.

The characters that won't be back annoy me. Fuck the actors that don't want to play the characters going forward. Kiick'em to the curb and bring in actors that do want to play the characters. Soap Operas swap out actors all of the time.

This is a problem in the comics with creators. They think they are more important than the characters. Jim Starlin killed off Captain Marvel with cancer in comics. He should have been told "no". I don't buy comics about superheroes to read about losers.
