In Theaters This Week (2/17/2017): The Wall, A Cure for Wellness, Fist Fight

Fist Fight

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  February 17th is a four-day weekend for a lot of people in the States for Presidents Day (insert your own joke about the current one here), and there are three underwhelming choices to greet it.  Essentially, if you missed John Wick or Lego Batman (I’M GETTING TO THE REVIEW), that’s your best bet if you plan to head to the movies this weekend.

In Theaters This Week (2/10/2017): LEGO Batman Movie, John Wick 2, 50 Shades Darker

John Wick Chapter 2, Keanu Reeves

Yes, the dog. I’m talking about the dog.

One faces a dilemma in reviewing movies like John Wick ( and there are so many movies like John Wick that you could spend the rest of your remaining earthly days scrolling through Netflix’s Action/Adventure suggestion queue and never watch half).  There’s the argument that every film deserves to be examined for artistic merit and even rancid pieces of boar offal like John Wick which critics are, for some inexplicable reason, lauding; thus warning the general public away – a sort of bio-hazard sticker for the Blu ray case.  On the other hand, there’s the argument that the more attention we pay to films this bad may encourage “film makers” to make more.  Sort of like why they don’t show fans who run on to the field at professional sporting events on the televised broadcast.

My Favorite Scene – The Matrix Revolutions (2004) “Neo vs. Smith; Final Battle”




The last three weeks we’ve been reviewing The Matrix trilogy in light of the rumored new trio of films being planned by the Wachowskis.  We had a lot of fun going through The Matrix and even The Matrix Reloaded, but now we come to Revolutions and the fun stops here.

My Favorite Scene – The Matrix (1999) – “The Dojo Fight”

With the rumor/announcement that the Wachowskis are working on a new trilogy of Matrix films, it seemed only appropriate that we take the next three My Favorite Scene columns to look at the original Matrix films.  We begin in 1999 with the film that blew the collective minds of geeks everywhere: The Matrix.
