    John Wick: Chapter 2

    ★★★★½

    I have absolutely no idea how they pulled this off.

    A vampiric Keanu Reeves (how old is he? No really??) punches, shoots, knifes, kicks, car slams, sign gestures, annoying mid screen über stylized sub dodges, one lines and sprint-shoots his way through a plethora of inept and not so inept fellow hitmen who all want a piece of his glorious ass.

    There is no real plot, just the 'How to make an action film' rulebook.

    And it bloody well works…

  • The Boss Baby

    The Boss Baby

    ★★★★

    I saw this with my six year old son.

    To all grown up types who watched this and complain that it's uninspired and boring, go watch it with a kid (preferably one you know, I do not endorse kidnapping) and then watch them watching it.

    This film is a complete and utter delight.

    Things my son took away from this:
    - It's cool to have an imagination.
    - A baby showing his ass is pee-your-pants funny.
    - Puke is fun.
    - Babies are scary. Especially with grown up voices.
    - Something about family and stuff.

    Son: Let's roll.

    Me: What'd you think, buddy?

    -Son gives me a look-

    Me: C'mon, wasn't that bad was it?
