A most formidable entry into the franchise, Chapter 4 polishes the formula to near sparkling and doubles down on the action, adding some great new characters to the party and giving us the heaviest hitting tactical action yet.
John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum 2019
Jay Dubs Chappie 3 shows it’s possible to have too much of a good thing. It’s mostly satisfying, with some exciting additions to the franchise (dogs, horses, oh my), but as the runtime goes on the extended sequences stop feeling fresh and the lack of stakes takes its toll. This is most apparent when the final fight turns into three fights, two of which have Wick facing off against a pair of blade-wielding baddies.
One of those would have been enough, and less of everything would have been better.
John Wick: Chapter 2 2017
Fully realizes what the Wick franchise wants to be. Very stunty with a bit of goofy, Chapter 2 manages to balance the worlds it walks between while expanding the setting tenfold in a uniquely creative and downright entertaining way.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2014
Fun and doesn't take itself too seriously in all the right ways. Well acted and smart, my only major grievance is that Ronan was forgettable and disposable as a villain. Glad I caught it a second time in theaters to get over the hype.
The Maze Runner 2014
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Falls below average when it's revealed that **the maze has been fully mapped out before the movie begins** -- so what's the point, again?
