#2,345: John Wick 2

Tangerine - ★★★★☆
In that early sit-down scene with the impossible continuity, I thought, "what. What is this?"
But then I loved it. And that's only partially because I like movies that happen in locations I know.

Anthropoid - ★★☆☆☆
A little bit boring movie about the Czech liberationists that couldn't shoot straight.

Logan - ★★★★☆
Obviously the best Wolverine movie, maybe the best X-Men movie. The supporting characters are terrific in a way that X-Men usually isn't (which is a shame in an ensemble). The X-24 parts felt like a little bit of a cheat, - like Passengers, taking the 'easy out' of action instead of going even deeper and darker. But it's all worth it to learn that sometimes you can't just drive through a fence.

John Wick: Chapter 2 - ★★★★☆
This feels like a real success. I think that anyone who sees this movie on purpose is going to like it. Probably, you saw the first one, and you want more, and then you get more. Also, although not based on a game or anything else, this is a really good video game movie.

The only real downside is that any amount of time spent further explaining a mysterious and seemingly complete fictional universe can't help but erode the mystique.
