Tell that to Christian bale and taye diggs


You want me to tell Christian Bale and Taye Diggs that the one true Gun Fu Master is Keanu Reeves? Keanu is the Bruce Lee of Gun Fu... and a true master of the art. I think they know.

That is why Keanu Reeves is the Bruce Lee of Gun Fu... Bruce Lee is not the inventor nor the first ever master of Kung Fu... he revolutionized it and brought it to the people of the world, much like Keanu Reeves. No one but you has seen Equilibrium... but everyone has seen John Wick. We seem to be both correct and stating differing facts in this conversation.

Lol. I have seen that movie. I even made a thread about it around the same time as John Wick 1

Netflix explains why badly reviewed "Bright" killed with viewers
“Critics are an important part of the artistic process, but are… pretty disconnected from the commercial prospects of a film,” said chief content officer Ted Sarandos. They speak to specific audiences who care about quality, or how objectively good or bad a movie is—not the masses who are critical for determining whether a film makes money, he said. “The critics are pretty disconnected from the mass appeal,” added CEO Reed Hastings.

Translation: "Just because a movie sucks, doesn't mean we aren't gonna make a shit load of money off of it. Have you guys ever heard of Transformers?"

Lol Wags


I thought this movie was great! I haven't seen Training Day in like 20 years so that could be why I didn't really piece together that it was the same story. If you analyze this movie a lot, it's probably not great. Super straight edge cop v corrupt cops and a new guy on the block no one likes. The movie was very entertaining and the universe was awesome! Lord of the Rings with guns, what's not to enjoy? I did catch a lot of Fifth Element from it like Tyler mentioned. Will definitely watch the sequels and I'm glad I watched this one!

Very good point about the world turning out exactly the same even with the addition of fantasy elements.
