#622: John Wick / John Wick: Chapter 2 / The Lego Batman
« on: February 17, 2017, 02:51:15 PM »


When the Keanu Reeves revenge tale JOHN WICK opened back in 2014, it made a modest $80 million at the box office. But in the couple years since it has acquired something almost as valuable as money: cult status. That cult fervor was rewarded with a sequel: JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2, with Reeves battling some of the world's deadliest killers. We dig into the Wick phenomenon with reviews of both the original and the new entry, plus thoughts on THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I'm not sure how I feel about Adam and Josh shilling sex toys.

Edit: Weird. It makes me feel weird.  ;D

Yeah, the sex toys thing is weird.  But not as weird as them selling bras.

I think that was Sam's response.

Just caught Chapter 2 after my first - and very trippy day - in Beirut. What followed was perfect synchronicity between movie and setting: My brain kept trying to remind me that this makes no sense and is completely OTT, but my soul said "So is the real world, brother, you're in denial. Just go with it!" Am determined to never re-watch it and just keep it in a mental time capsule.
