RE: The movie thread
John Wick 3 / theater
Whoa.... the movie makes my T10 badass action movies of all time. There was nothing not badass about it. The story was a pretty good way to pick up after 2. I think my only gripe right now as the franchise sits at 3 installments is what is the deal with the High Table, the Continental, and what exactly did Wick do to get himself out of it the first time. I mean, with the way the ties between all of these are set up, he must have done some truly next level sh* to barter his way out.

********************

Wow... so out of date ... so....

** THE MCU Movies I own / BR
--prepped up for Endgame. Mainly wanted to hit some highpoints of story points and post watching Endgame I went back to a few for some background as well.

Star Wars / BR
--Ep 1 -- 20th anniversary ya know
--The Last Jedi --wanted some rewatch when the trailer for the new one hit
--Solo -- for that Chewie homage
--Ep 4, 5, and 6 for more Chewie love

Terminator, Terminator Genysis / BR
--for time travel discussion based on events of Endgame

Back to the Future II / BR
--Time travel discussion based on events of Endgame

The Hateful Eight SE / NF
--Decided to watch the 4 part episodic format Tarantino put out on NF for the movie. I honestly haven't come across new material like it is supposed to have for this Director's Cut of the movie or I haven't noticed it if it has had some new content. I've completed Episodes 1-3 so far.

Wanted/ NF
--I liked the original enough to rewatch on NF. Not a bad action movie but it never captured my mind enough for me to own it. Decent talent pool of actors though.

John Wick & 2 / BR
--Reupping my memory banks for checking out #3 at the theater soon. I like a lot of elements in the first two even if by mind the botched some of the fight choreography.

Alien/BR
--just wanted to watch.

Arrow S8/NF
-- First two episodes tonight since I saw it just hit NF. Wow... they are going full on action movie route this time. Honestly, that is what I kind of like about the series. It is less fluff than Supergirl, Black Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow, and The Flash.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome/BR
--just wanted to.

X Men Days of Future Past/BR
--One of my faves in the new XMen movies. Really, in this new line of films, only Apocalypse kind of underwhelmed me. Hopefully they do Dark Phoenix better than what was told in X Men III The Last Stand because that one just wasn't that good.

The Dark Knight Rises/BR
--just wanted to.

Kindergarten Cop 2/ NF
--man.... this one was a struggle. I mean, yeah Dolph plays Arnold's equivalent to the story well enough, but the movie just felt underdone.

The Hunger Games Catching Fire/BR
--Still not bad. I think the whole story arc and movies were pretty good.

Avengers: Endgame -

It was rewarding. I don't think it stood a chance of topping Infinity War, especially knowing that Time Travel was going to used to solve everything. Instead the Russo Brothers chose to give to reward to fans with great moments for their most beloved characters.

John Wick 3 -

The middle fight scene with Halle Berry was a little long IMO. Honestly leaving NYC was an unnecessary distraction from what otherwise was a non stop action fest. Loved the little easter eggs throughout the movie as well.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix -

HOT GARBAGE!!! Honestly, this story can't be told in two hours and Sophia Turner is a terrible Jean Grey. Somehow manages to be worse than Apocalypse. This will leave such a bad taste in everyone's mouth that the MCU won't be able to use mutants for a few years.

I thought DP was better than Apocalypse and XIII. Not sure what is the deal with the XMen movies though, somehow the 3rd ones always go wrong LOL.
