    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    ★★★½

    John Wick's unique cyberpunkish universe. In which everybody's martial artist. Even some horses. I had a good laugh there. Another gorgeous looking chapter filled with delicious action. Too bad Stahelski relies a little too heavy on CGI in some scenes. I really don't want to see that bumpy superhero crap here, Chad. And 2+hrs is to be a bit on the long side.

    Dark Angel

    ★★★½

    Bring out all your superheroes, tear down all the CGI cities you want or destroy complete planets for all I care, I will always prefer this kind of pure action. And Baxley was quite good at it in those years. Dolph Lundgren too, that's a pretty sweet roundhouse kick early on, but his ruthless cop is also having a bad day as his partner goes down. In comes a new one. A by the book fed. That means male bonding…
