Toy Story 4 Passes

Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. So when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.

John Wick: Chapter Two Passes

image001

In this next chapter following the 2014 hit, legendary hitman John Wick [Keanu Reeves] is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.

John Wick

Liam Neeson in Taken (2008), Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Faster (2010), Nicholas Cage in Stolen (2012), Denzel Washington in The Equalizer (2014), and now, Keanu Reeves stars as a retired killing machine in the action-packed film, John Wick. Like many other revenge-based films, John Wick sets a high-level violent agenda to murder dozens of people.

In the movie, many former colleagues feared the news of his return after some Russian gangsters ransacked the Wick residence. John Wick also stars Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Ian McShane, Willem Dafoe and my favorite former drag queen, John Leguizamo (To Wong Foo).

But, John Wick Director Chad Stahelaki must have known that this storyline was very similar to that of The Equalizer. Both men uses retaliation as the fuel to start an all-out war on foreign enemies. Both men have leave their comfortable retirement to finish their vendettas. And both men, despite their age, use their physical states to kick butt.

Not to mention, both movies have corny endings. No Spoilers! No Shade!

JW vs TE
The plots are almost identical. So similar that I have coined John Wick as the White Equalizer. While The Equalizer is multidimensional (and features the cutest minor, John Wick has ten times more action, killing, and overall brutality.

In addition to the murderous décor, John Wick holds about five big hilarious moments. While there’s nothing funny about dozens of casualties, the infrequent laughter is refreshing and appreciated. I have a queer sense of humor so don’t be alarmed if you don’t laugh as much.

If I had to choose a winner, it would be The Equalizer. But, the White Equalizer comes in at a very close second place.

3 Stars: With the release date and movie plot, John Wick was frightfully too close to The Equalizer. I could pull the race card and say Denzel Washington cannot have one single moment of “glory” but I see this as an opportunity to recognize that everybody cannot be Denzel!

John Wick Passes

Kevin Costner came out of retirement to save his life in Three Days to Kill.  Denzel Washington came out of retirement as to save a lonely teenager in The Equalizer. And now, Keanu Reeves also plays an ex-hitman, John Wick, who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.
