    It’s not a... she’s really funny. I like her.

    I went to the cinema twice in one day yesterday!

    Firstly, I saw Pokémon: Detective Pikachu with my son. He said it was "The best film eveeeeeer", but he says that about every film.
    I was disappointed, to be honest. I'm not a ginormous Pokémon fan, just a passing interest, so the thrill of seeing a Jigglypuff was lost on me. The main appeal of Pikachu being voiced by Ryan Reynolds wasn't as funny as I thought it'd be. I'm not sure if he was improvising or they were pre-written lines, but most fell a bit flat.
    Story was OK, but a bit predictable, but it's not really aimed at me. Some films like Toy Story and Lego Movie I could watch without the kids, but I wouldn't watch it again.
    I shouldn't really complain, because whilst I was watching this with my son, my wife was with our daughter in the screen next door watching Paw Patrol: Mighty Pups. I dodged a bullet there.

    Talking of dodging bullets, that's what Keanu Reeves did a lot of in John Wick Part 3: Parabellum.
    Yeah, this was swiggedy-sweet!
    I was genuinely excited to realise I was watching a modern, Western martial arts film without shakycam, but with an interesting story.
    The plot is pretty simple, but expands the idea of the world of assassins, shifting the motivations from the initial film's revenge and the sequel's manipulation to one of survival and learning who he can really trust.
    It's the fighting that shines here, thankfully, and my fears that it might get a bit repetitive were unfounded as each section has its own unique merits.

    Obviously, I was buzzing to see some of my fave screen fighters (Mark Dacascos, Yayan Ruhian and Cepep Arif Rahman) in this.
    Dacascos particularly shines, playing an interesting bad guy that has more depth than first appears, leading to a few laughs.
    The guys from the Raid 2 have less depth, but you know every time they're on screen, somebody's gonna get a whuppin'.

    Plenty of big names actors also pop up and props to Halle Berry, who gives John Wick a run for his money as a badass with a great sequence with quite a long take with a handheld camera in the middle adding to the sense of chaos.
    Berry training footage:

    So yeah, I really enjoyed this and would've been happy if it had finished here, but by the end I was still ready for more, so I'm pleased it has had a strong opening (finally toppling Endgame at the box office) and they're planning on part 4.

    John Wick: Chapter Three
    I think I enjoyed it a little bit more than Ch2, as soon as events started to be fed into by the Adjudicator you could see Ch4 and 5 line themselves up. Even if they end up over staying their welcome it's impressive that it's this good for this long, my only real downer is that I would have preferred events to stay in the city, it sagged a little for changing locale and didn't really need to in order to do that plot point but overall great fun.

    Just finished watching Brawl in Cell Block 99 on Netflix.

    Holy moly it gets brutal! :O

    It's a real slow burner, which makes the violence, when it finally comes, even more intense.

    The 2005 remake of The Fog. Won't even dignify it with a paragraph, it's truly tedious pap and it nearly bored me to sleep.

    Hellboy 2, for the first time since it came out at the pictures. It reminded me of Ghostbusters 2 crossed with Phantom Menace. It was good. Good all the way. But never more than good. Did like the Abe guy actually doing the voice this time, he does a great job, I think I was disappointed it wasn't Niles the first time I saw this.

    Johann Krauss makes the movie, though. What a great character!

    Ah cool, I'll keep an eye out for that when it streams. It's only just been on the cinema.

    "Eye out" and "dragged across concrete" are just some of the things Vaughn does in Brawl In Cell Block 99 too!

    Dragged Across Concrete is class ... Mel Gibson is so good too.
