Frank 8/10

Honestly didn't expect much out of this from the appearance. Thought it was going to be one of those indie films where whimsy is supposed to evoke some kind of emotion.

Frank is a good movie about music. Its a good movie about mental illness.

I found a lot to like about this movie, but not much to say.

The French Connection 10/10

Honestly don't hear people talk about this enough when it comes to crime thrillers from the 70s. I really like how this movie portrays law enforcement. Doyle is dedicated, but he's also sloppy. Their are so many times where he is close to solving the thing and everything slips through his fingers.

The scene where I realized I love this movie is this one car chase. I can't remember a movie right now besides this where the protagonist is being so careless that he crashes his car several times during a chase. It felt so intense. You could almost feel his frustration. It reminded me of when you crash your car during a chase in GTA.

John Wick: 10/10

EXACTLY what it set out to be, and THEN SOME.

Lots of cheese in the writing, but interspaced with some really REALLY good character development and some of the finest comic-book levels of badassery I have seen on the big screen EVER. and all delivered by some top-quality actors, who really do revel in the stupidity of it all. Keanu is a fucking dream, man.

And while I had no right to be anything more than a damn good action flick at best, it also pulled some of the finest examples of show-don't-tell storytelling and worldbuilding straight out of it's ass. Complex concepts for the huge mob-run world Wick is set in are given piece throughout the movie, to the point where you never feel swamped with information, because at no point does anyone sit down and give you a lecture about 'how shit works around here'.

And the action sequences. Oh my fucking god the action sequences. I honestly haven't seen anything on par with the level of seer AWESOME that was demonstrated in this movie. it's got your CQC deathmacthes, it's got gun and knife wrestling, it's got combat rolls, executions, quickdraw, and oh my good gravy. They really have to be seen to be believed. A good portion of the movie is dedicated to just John's relationship with his dog and his backstory being built up, but by the time the first major action sequence starts you are ready to be convinced that this man is a god. And it works.


You love action movies? Watch it. Interested in really good storytelling? Gotcha covered here. Sexy old men? We got Keanu and even Willem Dafoe turns up if that's your thing.

Watch this movie.
