RE: on that list I've seen.....

..two. John Wick vol. 2 and King Arthur Legend of the Sword.

I can see why many would vote thumbs down on these two films but,....truth be told I enjoyed them both.

John Wick vol. 2 is simply wall to wall violence with only just a little bit of story telling to get the action going. All he needs is some really prodious motivation to get the wheels turning in this film. Then, like a complex chain of gears, the violence must continue until all of the energy within that gear chain is spent. I enjoyed it for what it was. Expect more of same from vol.3 when that comes around. Reeves is starting to look a bit past his prime in the face but, physically, he seems to keep up.


King Arthur via director Guy Richie. I don't think it matters that Richie stretched the mythical boundaries in this story telling because.... not that many viewers want to revisit the whole King Arthur story in the first place. For those who do, this one does break out of the mold. It's not in the vogue of Mallory, nor Tennyson's Idylls of The King, nor is it taken from M.Stewart's Merlin trilogy, nor from any of the Catholic Priests who wrote of him in the late dark ages.

re: the rest of that list. I may see a few off it. But all in good time.
