Movie Review: The Bad Batch

The Bad Batch
Written & Directed by Ana Lily Amirpour
Cast: Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi, Jim Carrey, Jayda Fink
Annapurna Pictures | Neon Films
Rated R | 115 Minutes
Release Date: June 23rd, 2017

In 2014’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour showcased her unique style, blending genres while maintaining a minimalist approach. Her Iranian vampire/spaghetti western film earned international acclaim, but also garnered a lot of reviews uttering the phrase “style over substance.” In her latest film, The Bad Batch, she adheres to all of these traits, positive and negative, again. The Bad Batch is at times brutally violent, at times wonderfully poignant, and all together completely bizarre. It’s one of those films where it ends and you kind of just sit there pondering for a few seconds as the credits roll. What did I just watch? Did I love this movie or hate it? The one thing that sticks with me is what I wrote mid-film, “This is like if Mad max f*cked The Neon Demon.”

The New ‘Matrix’ Film Might Not Be A Reboot After All

The Matrix

Over the weekend, the Internet went crazy when word got out that The Matrix was being rebooted. In all fairness, something like this getting rebooted isn’t at all surprising considering studios want to revive certain successful franchises. But for a film to end the way it did, why even bother rebooting it when there is so much more story left to tell? So Zak Penn, the writer hired to write the next (or newest) chapter of The Matrix, took to Twitter to explain what he will be doing for the franchise.

Find out his thoughts on the matter and his “approach” to it below.

Keanu Reeves stars as John Wick in JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2

John Wick: Chapter 2
Director: Chad Stahelski
Screenwriter: Derek Kolstad
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, Franco Nero, Ruby Rose, John Leguizamo, Peter Stormare, Peter Serafinowicz, Lance Reddick
Distributor: Summit Entertainment
Rated R | 122 Minutes
Release Date: February 10, 2017

“Somebody please get this man a gun!”

With 2014’s John Wick, co-directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch delivered a stylish neo-noir action thriller with hyper-kinetic fight choreography and sophisticated “gun fu” a-la John Woo’s The Killer. In the follow-up, John Wick: Chapter 2, Stahelski and returning screenwriter Derek Kolstad attempt to delve deeper into Wick’s internal struggle and expand the franchise’s mythology.

After unleashing hell on the Russian mobsters who killed his dog, retired hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves)’s plans to resume a quiet civilian life are cut short when Italian gangster Santino D’Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio) shows up on his doorstep with a gold “marker” compelling him to repay past favors.

‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ Trailer: How Good It Is To See Mr. Wick So Soon

John Wick Chapter 2 header

Of course, he’s back. Having a one and done film for John Wick (Keanu Reeves) didn’t seem appropriate for the man, the myth, and the legend. So the successful film about the former assassin who came out of retirement after the son of a crime boss killed his beloved dog (which was also a gift from his dying wife) is getting a well-deserved sequel, and it looks like it will live up to expectations.

Lionsgate has released the second trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, and the action can only go up from here. Especially since there is a mark on him.

Check out the latest trailer here below.

NYCC 2016: ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ Trailer Keanu Reeves Is Out Of Retirement, Again

John Wick Chapter 2 header

For a guy who says he is out of the game, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) certainly has a hard time grasping the concept of retirement. Which is a good thing for us, especially if you were a fan of the first film. Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have released the first trailer today for John Wick: Chapter 2 at the New York Comic-Con. The first film, 2014’s John Wick, was very ambitious but caught everyone’s attention because of the visually appealing stylized action, and now it looks like returning director Chad Stahelski is turning it up in the sequel that will see the title character doing so much more than kick ass in a tailored suit.

Check out the trailer below.

‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ Gets A Sharp Tailor-Made NYCC Poster
eelyajekiM   |  

John Wick

My love for John Wick comes from the title character’s determination to get justice for his dog’s killer. And when I say justice, I mean deadly revenge since he was a retired assassin whom some in his profession thought of as the Boogie Man. Sure enough, the action flick starring Keanu Reeves was a hit with audiences, which of course meant that Lionsgate had to put John Wick: Chapter 2 into production. Luckily, he won’t be motivated to kill because his new dog died, but a former associate seems to bring him out of hiding when he tries to gain control of an assassins’ guild.

Now that Wick has a reason to come out of retirement, again, he will have to do it in style. Check out the latest teaser poster for the film below.

The Movie God   |  

Keanu Reeves Voices Cat In Keanu

The first feature film from Key & Peele stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, titled Keanu, already looked like a lot of fun, following two men trying to retrieve a stolen kitten.

And of course the first thing you think of when you read the title is Keanu Reeves. So finding out Reeves actually voices a cat in the movie makes it all the more amusing. Thought this wasn’t always the plan. In fact, it wasn’t until Reeves actually saw a trailer for the movie that he reached out to see if he could help out at all.

You can read the story below.
