The time has finally come! It took me a while to get to due to getting the chance to see ‘Downsizing’, ‘Pitch Perfect 3’, ‘Bright’, and ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’. Now, I can say that I am finally doing my favorite write-up of the year: Ranking my Top 10 films that made an impact on my movie-going experience! (Stay tuned for my 10 Worst films of the year!) Unlike previous years, these films are not specifically ranked by grade as much as to how I loved them. (even though, it is a major factor in my choices) With all that being said; on with the countdown!
As I sat through ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’, I was hoping for a superior sequel to its decent predecessor, which gave us a disgruntled (and grizzly) Keanu Reeves treading the streets while killing the people who not only stole his car, but also killed his dog. (Which I’m sure made many people wanting to keep close to their pets as possible). We were shown a sympathetic former assassin who had a reason to do what he did. His name? John Wick. Reeves is bad-ass as Wick, and he gives it his all when he takes up that duty once again in this sequel. To tell you the truth, I really liked it. My friends and I were discussing on the ride home how this could potentially set up a third movie in what is set up to be a franchise. I really hope there is a third ‘John Wick’ and cannot wait to see Reeves once again do what he should do best: Shoot, give funny quips, and look dapper.
