    AJMCC Episode #6 Challenge Movie Justin's challenge to me

    Opening credits def had a Sublime April 26 1992 vibe - youtu.be/oM1a1ycLtRs

    I was surprised by the black and white of the movie as this is a movie from the mid 90s but I've started enjoying them a lot over the last few years

    The opening riot scene sets the vibe for the movie of the racial and social tension going on in this particular French slum. It's three friends over…

    AJMCC episode #6 Main Feature

    Akira Kurosawa'a first venture into color and oh man did this master nail it. The red, blue and yellow's really popped through out the movie.

    There were lots of good story development among the characters but there were just long periods and by long periods I mean the whole movie where nothing really happened which imo keeps this one from really shining more

    Where to start with this one. First off this movie is freakin amazingly visually stunning. Amazing landscape shots, stellar shots of the robots. Oh yeah spoilers, there are robots.

    John Wick: Chapter 2

    ★★★★½

    So this was my first time watching since my initial viewing and I must say I enjoyed this one much more than I did the first time. I enjoyed the back story how JW used a heel to get out and then how it came back to bite him in the ass.
    I enjoyed how much more we got to see this particular underworld was involved and revolved around the Continental and the High Table etc.

    The action was of course fast and furious and looked fantastic to the surprise of no one.

    I def say give this one a whirl!
