“John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” and Zhang Yimou’s “Shadow” on episode #253

Pick up the pace, Mr. Wick. You’re only safe for an hour!

Lots of action on the show this week. First up, Kris and Evan talk about Zhang Yimou’s latest, SHADOW (3:30). Plus, they both have tips on how to NOT watch certain types of movies (in this case, action). Then it’s the main event, JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 — PARABELLUM (16:30). First, Evan catches us up on the first two John Wicks (he watched them for the first time over the weekend), and then it’s talk of fightin’ and killin’ as Keanu Reeves more or less turns every assassin in the world into mincemeat. Plus, Kris breaks down whether the linguistics of JOHN WICK hold up.

PHANTOM THREAD (Paul Thomas Anderson), and Liam Neeson in THE COMMUTER on Episode #183

Ah, this scene, with Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) fitting a dress for Alma (Vicky Krieps), goes in many different directions.

Evan is sunning himself on a beach somewhere – or maybe not. But he’s in Florida, which means he’s warmer than Kris and Dave. And that means there’s a special guest filling in, friend-of-the-show Greg Vellante! After a brief discussion about why Greg works seven full days a week, he breaks down the latest Liam-Neeson-kills-people-in-January movie THE COMMUTER (6:03). Kris lets everyone know how’s he’s doing with his Letterboxd account, and then they’re into tha main event: Paul Thomas Anderson’s PHANTOM THREAD, starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Vicky Krieps. One word of advice: See it on film if you have the opportunity.

JOHN WICK, BIRDMAN, AND THE BLUE ROOM on Episode #15

_1JW7056.NEF

This week we talk about Keanu Reeves’ old-guy-kicking-ass movie JOHN WICK, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s BIRDMAN, and the very French THE BLUE ROOM. Tangents this week include why trailers suck, the French as a people, the Byronic hero, and lots of other stuff. Plus, Dave sings “Two Heads Are Better Than One” for a half-chorus (it’s Evan’s fault), and Kris explains how John Wick (the character) comes to violence (short version: The bad guys came at him on the WRONG day).
