John Wick                     (Lionsgate) (GeekRex review)
Stylishly shot to a fault, there's a kinetic energy pulsing throughout, particularly once the action really kicks in after the setup is established. Point-blank gunfire is paired with expertly choreographed stunts from elaborate set piece to set piece, and while it all starts to feel a bit video-game like after awhile, the early going of John Wick is a tribute to practical stunt-work and how seamlessly Reeves is drawn into the action. The choreography, as you'd expect, is something to behold, and the action is shot so cleanly, you catch every blow. In many ways, the film begins to feel like a very gruesome ballet, with some of the drawbacks that this also implies.

The Interview  (2014)             (GeekRex review)
The Interview is... pretty good. Hell, at points, The Interview verges on excellence, particularly in the segments where American media guru Dave Skylark finds himself completely buying into North Korea's propaganda, more than happy to believe that the American media lies given how much shit he himself shovels every day. Indeed, The Interview is far more effective as a satire on American international relations, a thread that keeps popping up only to be buried amidst a barrage of rectum jokes. It's a ridiculous movie, and an enjoyable one, but there are a few long, laughless stretches in the early going and a climax that struggles to blend the manic energy of Rogen and Bang's scene with the more understated comedy of Franco's interview.
