John Wick.

John Wick

What a movie! Phew!

My readers will find it difficult to believe it but I went to see it so that I can write a blog post. Someone very dear to me texted me earlier this morning as to why I have not been blogging.  I responded that my brain had gone to sleep but I thought to myself that I should get back to blogging and might as well do it with a review of a movie.

That there was a movie running with Keanu Reeves starring in it made it even more attractive a proposition.  And with two of my friends agreeing to spend a few hours with some male bonding, we went for a matinee show and winded down with some great high tea in great ambience.

This movie is what my friend Chuck calls a Pop Corn Movie.  A very weak story made to come alive with nothing but clever photography and mindless violence, nowadays called as action.  One expects the hero to win against all odds and he does but does it while keeping the viewer’s eyes pealed and his bottom glued to the seat.  If you can afford to have your adrenalin pumping non stop for about a hundred minutes, this movie is worth a dekho.  In fact that the excitement lasts only for about that much is a great plus point which pushes my rating for it from three to [rating=4].

    Definitely a popcorn movie. I’ll see it – I like Keanu Reeves and there’s always a need for popcorn!

    HA! thanks rummy.
    will pass on this one. even though I do adore keanu reeves.
    i especially liked him in “something’s got to give.” with diane keaton and jack nicholson. i think you would really enjoy that one if you haven’t seen it. wonderful dialogue! and sumptuous settings.
    as to my adrenaline pumping with violence and such… not a good thing for me! AND … so glad to see a post here my rummy! wilson’s muse has also gone for awhile i think. hoping he’s okay. it’s been a long time since his last post. but he told me he’s fine. just busy.

  3. Did you mean it to be 4 stars out of six or out of five? lol I’ve heard about this one but have decided to wait on it since I can’t get any of my friends to go. Glad you enjoyed it though and I’m sure I will when I finally do see it.

    Hi Rummy,

    Not my type of movie although I am a fan of Keanu’s.
    Good to see you back to blogging but if you need some more rest, please do 🙂

    Cheers

    • It is not rest that I need Max, it is inspiration to write! Will manage now that most of the stuff that has been weighing me down the last few weeks have stabilised into manageable levels. None of them to do anything directly to me!

  7. That film was released during my otherwise occupied period. I have not seen it but what better recommendation than one from you. Have sent for a DVD.

    I am not a popcorn fan, so will give this one a miss/

    I am glad you have found someone very dear, to encourage you to blog.
