John Wick

Movies with choreographed violence prompt a guilt¬†response in me. I think they’re cool and enjoyable, but feel that I shouldn’t partake. I do have a tendency to over-indulge at times. This is one of those movies, it got some good reviews and I’ve found myself needing escapism recently.

You know what I’m talking about with choreographed violence. It has a few key¬†features. First, it has foreshadowing; you either know what’s going to happen or you have an inclination. Second, it has slow motion or some funky camera technique. And finally, it has gore.

This can’t be good for humanity, or my brain, but neither is sugar. It’s not a bad movie, but somewhat of a throwaway.
