Speaking of John Wick, I saw the sequel on the plane. I’m on the side of those who thought it was diminishing returns. I think the biggest problem was that he (slight spoiler) isn’t motivated by anything much, this time. Last, time there was a dog to avenge; this time, it seems like he just doesn’t want to be killed, but at the same time it also doesn’t look like he particularly wants to live, or to do anything at all. He just looks weary and like he’d like to go off and have a good nap for the whole movie.
