John Wick is not your regular Disney/Marvel stuff.
By the way he might join the dark superheroe world eventually.

Top Gun is about aerial choreography, John Wick is about terrestrial choreography.
John Wick is extremely stylised, that's today's charm.

If Top Gun: Maverick can make half worldwide what Endgame made that'll be the day. There's more a chance Disney buying Lionsgate and Paramount ...

P.S.
On a personal note, I felt the fight scenes in JW3 were waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long. I prefer something of this duration which doesn’t stretch credibility so much…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoerKPFg03w#t=1s
Jack is no John, in the Hollywood franchise business.
Realistic doesn't sell in this business, we see it every single day.
Blowing our minds out @ the movies is what entertainment with a sign of $$$ attracts both sides of the screen ...

Tom is a stuntman, Keanu is a CGI (CG glass) actor. ...Two different styles.

mrtickle – Over lunch I enjoyed reading the discussion about the 2.4 gamma and BT. 1886 you recently had with Stacey. For some history regarding that start at ~ 35 min. timestamp on this podcast - https://taoofcolor.com/2349/podcast-...update-part-2/

and continue for about 10 min. Thing is many grading facilities have been using 2.4 with a black level set at 0 which caused some issues when viewing content on consumer LCDs, so some facilities set black level up to 0.01 - 0.03 nits, maybe as high as 0.04 on their grading monitors.

Different strokes for different folks. Personally, if I can go to the bathroom have a bowel movement then to the kitchen for a beer and return to see the same action sequence still going on in JW3 then I feel it’s way too long.

b.t.w., so folks don’t get the wrong idea, for the record I really admire Keanu - https://www.thelist.com/93417/ways-k...away-millions/
my lack of attraction is with the editing in 3

Occasionally I’ll point out its weaknesses, otherwise, I don’t have that much of a problem with 8K tvs coming forth. People are free to choose what they want to buy, it’s not like there are real repercussions to our democracy.

I think Robert Z. likes ‘em and he’s probably seen more 8K/4K tvs side by side than anyone else here. I’d personally prefer consumer electronics manufacturers work on other things but like they listen to what I have to say in that regard. A positive feature I do see with the introduction of 8K tvs is that it has ignited R&D into AI machine learning upscaling methods turning away from conventional upscaling methods which is probably long overdue.

You're just too old Penton for that John Wick stuff.

I agree with you JW3 was more of a formula movie with not enough plot and too many fighting scenes.

The first was the best...new and fresh.
The second expanded on the first with the number of kills and bullets.
The third just went overboard.
The fourth, I can't wait to see what they'll come up with.

Those are comedy/action kungfu chop suey flicks with sticks and guns and knives, a la Kill Bill Tarantino similarity. Kids stuff, and grownup kids with a taste of excitement.

I wouldn't recommend to romantic sweet hearts like normal wives and girlfriends and sisters and mothers. It's for boys with toys.

The HDR picture is simply fantastic. And the sounds of guns are fun.
The quick splashes of CGI blood in tandem with wicked Wick.

I miss Bruce ... and Chuck. And I miss the good Italian westerns ... Sergio Leone with Ennio Morricone's musical scores. John Wick is techno beat rhythm disco sounds and lights.

I want to see Anna next, from the Frenchman film director ... Luc Besson.

Just watched JW3. That's one of the bestest action movies I have ever seen. Ever. Still kinda stunned TBH.

I don’t know Anna but if you’re intrigued by strong female characters…..back in the day when she lived in north Orange County occasionally I rode the local trails with this little sista , whom you never know, you may run into someday up there in your neck of the woods if you cross the channel from your island. And if so, give her a hearty thumbs up.

The definition of a strong female…..https://www.pinkbike.com/news/Charac...rior-2013.html

...and I like b&w pics.

* Atomic Blonde was fun, Hanna (2011), Evelyn (Salt), Captain Marvel, Black Widow, La Femme Nikita, Leeloo (5th Element), Mathilda (Leon the Pro), Lucy, ...

Of course I like strong female characters ...
