I want to smell dark matter
John Wick Chapter 2 - If you liked the first one you'll like this one because it's pretty similar but bigger in every way. I guess after the first was a hit they could spend more money on this because it looks slicker, the action is more elaborate and there's like ten times as many kills. And it's fun! These movies are really silly but they get the tone just right somehow. They don't take themselves too serious, but they take themselves seriously enough that you're not laughing at how stupid it is. It's a cool kind of silly rather than a silly kind of silly? Like the bit where he was walking through the train station having a lowkey shootout with another assassin. And the fact that it exists in a world where seemingly everyone is an assassin. Those are silly things but they work! One thing the original had over this one though was a more personal story (they killed his fucking dog!) whereas in this one it's basically just "John Wick versus the World" and the only stakes are staying alive. But otherwise it improves on the first in every way.
