On this week’s podcast join Dan and Ethan as they dive deep into their love of the coolest films around, the John Wick series. If you’ve never seen a John Wick film worry not as we give a quick breakdown of everything you need to know to bring you up to speed. But if you want to jump right into our full discussion, here’s a quick back-of-the-box blurb to get you prepped:
John Wick, also known as The Baba Yaga, is a retired assassin played by Keanu Reeves, who, after his dog is killed by criminals, returns to the world of assassination to enact revenge, getting caught up in the machinations of the mysterious High Table. This has been going on for 4 films now. Once The Baba Yaga sets his mind to something, he doesn’t stop.
We talk all things Wick in this week’s podcast; our favorite kills and set pieces, ranging from a kneck-breaking book to the world’s most casual shootout (feat. Common), to a discussion on the awesomeness of character names throughout the series, and why John Wick: Chapter Three – Parabellum is the only film in the series to have an admittedly dope title. We also chat about the power of neon lighting, dive into the brilliant, over-the-top world-building of the films, including The Continental hotel, and remember the once-in-a-lifetime talent that was Lance Reddick.
And if you want to know all the non-spoilery details about this week’s John Wick: Chapter Four, first, make sure to check out Dan’s review right here on the site tomorrow, then listen in as he tries to explain the sheer coolness of this newest entry, and why not only is it his favorite film in the series, but maybe his new favorite action film. There’s all that and more on this week’s pod covering all things John Wick.
