John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum
When we last left John Wick, he was breaking rules and breaking bones. Now, he has to pay with his life for the rule-breaking after being excommunicated from the secret organization.
The plot once again takes a backseat to the action, which this movie is fully prepared to accept. The opening sequence of the film is so frenetic and engaging that sometimes the rest of the film feels boring compared to it. You've never seen so many knives being thrown and it is awesome.
But that isn't to say the series has lost its action-packed fun. Keanu Reeves was made to born to play the slick, confident Wick. Each action scene further proves why Wick is the assassin's assassin. Although he is not as crisp as the first film, Wick is still here to take names and fingers.
If you're a fan of John Wick, the movie will be a great ride, but just be aware it's a little longer than it should be. - Michael Buckner
The John Wick franchise (Wicki-Kill Streaks Universe) is like popcorn. It’s not what you thought you wanted as a snack, but once you start eating it, you wonder how you ever lived without it. It’s the prefect combination of butter, salt and air. Then you eat a little bit more. You still like it, but it’s not the same. After a while you start getting tired of the popcorn and that’s when it happens. You look down and realize you’ve still got half a bucket left to eat.
Unfortunately, that’s how John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum feels.
This is a fun franchise that balanced unique world building with insane fight sequences. But the latest installment just has too much of both. The movie is entertaining, but it really offers nothing more than a mind numbing time at the movies.
In a world of forced cinematic universes, John Wick felt different. It knew what is was and it left you wanting more. But just like the LEGO and Conjuring universes, the Wicki-Kill Streak Universe (let’s make it happen) tries to do too much and ultimately leaves you a little exhausted.
Just like the popcorn you’ve been snacking on for a while, John Wick 3: Parabellum is still good but it could really use some more butter. - JD Roberts
A Dog's Journey
A Dog's Journey, while sweet and innocent on the surface, can easily be a traumatizing movie for some kids.
It follows the same disembodied voice of Josh Gad as a dog's soul trying to protect Dennis Quaid from A Dog's Purpose. But soon after introducing his family and granddaughter, the dog has to be put down.
The dog's soul now has a new purpose: to protect the granddaughter of Dennis Quaid as a new dog.
This movie shows three dog deaths, which is very hard to watch, and I couldn't imagine what it would do to me if I was a kid.
A Dog's Journey plays exactly like a Hallmark movie, but with dogs and a weird reincarnation story line. Again, if you can't handle dog deaths in movies, AVOID THIS MOVIE AT ALL COSTS. - Zach Keast
