[ACT] Your last movie?
Watched Baywatch again. The new one. With pebble, sorority guy, quantico and some other chicks. Loved it.

Star Wars: Rogue One

My thoughts on this movie can be summed up in one word: Why? Why did anyone think it necessary to tell the story of how the Death Star plans were stolen? Why were those Peter Cushing and Carrie Fisher cgi abominations created? Why are the controls to the satellite dish way the fuck out on a platform? Why did they hire script writers who have never actually watched Star Wars?

There was no purpose to this film. All it did is create a giant plot hole.

Why John Wick is a better franchise than Fast and Furious

Full disclosure: I've seen both Wick movies and plan on watching watching Chapter 3. I've seen maybe a total of one and three-quarters of F&F movies out of -- what is it now? Seven? Eight? I couldn't even make it all the way through the first one.

So, John Wick is an ex-assassin. His wife, for whom he left the business, dies of a terminal illness. John mourns his wife and loves his car and the puppy his wife had arranged for him to receive upon her death. A young punk kills the puppy and steal's John's car. Said punk happens to be the son of a local crime boss. Hilarity ensues. Along the way we learn about the classiness of the high-end criminal underground, focusing on five-star hotel, The Continental. In Chapter 2, the hilarity continues. We also learn that The Continental is just a part of a global enterprise. (Rome's hotel is run by the original Django, Franco Nero.)

The John Wick movies are over-the-top, hyper-violent, and completely unrealistic. And that's why they are better than Furious. The first movie was, simplistically, cop and robber flick. With each new installment the locations become more far-reaching and the "action" (and reliance on cgi) increases. And therein lies the problem. John Wick started with an outlandish premise and built a consistent world with consistent stories around that premise. Furious started with a somewhat realistic premise that keeps getting rewritten with each additional installment.
