John Wick would have been an excellent action film if it took place in a world that was recognizable as our own, but it achieved instant classic status by taking a left turn into The Continental. Once Keanu Reeves‘ retired hitman decided that yeah, he was back, he dug up his weird assassins-only currency and checked into a room at that fancy hotel, an establishment that caters exclusively to professional murderers. Overseen by Ian McShane‘s mysterious Winston, The Continental houses all the resources a working hitman needs and operates with a strict “no violence on the premises” rule that sees violators punished with death. The film’s landscape of killers is just as complex and rich as a fantasy or science fiction and it practically begs to be explored further.
Now, it has been officially revealed that McShane is returning for John Wick 2, which means that The Continental is returning, which means that Chad Stahelski‘s sequel will once again take us into the borderline-fantastical world of the first film. This is excellent news.
What we know about the latest return to the John Wick 2 cast can be found after the jump.

When a dog is killed in a movie, it’s generally a cheap ploy to elicit emotion. John Wick, on the other hand, earns your angst. The lovable beagle is only in the movie for 10 or 15 minutes, but when it’s killed off, it means something to both the narrative and the titular character. After the jump, learn why, thank God, John Wick 2 will not kill another adorable puppy.

John Wick, with all of its head-shooting, puppy-avenging, Keanu-growling madness, is one of the best action movies ever made. And you know what? I’ll say it. We’re all thinking it. It’s one of the best movies ever made. Screw you, Michelangelo Antonioni! This is real art right here.

There’s a good chance no one has ever thought that they’d like to see a movie that intersects the worlds of films such as Star Wars, Scarface, John Wick, Collateral, Terminator, Trainspotting, Saturday Night Fever and more. But that’s exactly what Antonio Maria Da Silva has done with a wholly strange, mesmerizing and fantastic cleverly edited short compiled by using clips from all these movies.
We’ve featured supercuts and trailer remixes before, but this Hell’s Club mash-up is something completely different. We don’t want to give anything away, but Da Silva sets up the video by saying, “There is a place or fictional characters meet. Outside of time, outside of all logic, this place is known as Hell’s Club. Just watch it and be mesmerized. Read More »
In recent years, there’s been a lot of backlash against CGI visual effects as movie studios rely on them more and more instead of practical set pieces, models and make-up effects (mostly because there’s some pretty terrible visual effects out there). We’ve already highlighted a thoughtful look at how CGI effects are actually great when not relied upon too heavily and blend seamlessly with practical filmmaking techniques.
But sometimes CGI special effects are just downright unnecessary and baffling, and the folks at Dorkly have assembled a short list of five of the most unnecessary CGI special effects, but beware of some brief NSFW nudity. Somehow one of the Star Wars prequels only appeared on the list once. Read More »
