#622: John Wick / John Wick: Chapter 2 / Lego Batman Movie

When the Keanu Reeves revenge tale JOHN WICK opened back in 2014, it made a modest $80 million at the box office. But in the couple years since it has acquired something almost as valuable as money: cult status. That cult fervor was rewarded with a sequel: JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2, with Reeves battling some of the world's deadliest killers. We dig into the Wick phenomenon with reviews of both the original and the new entry, plus thoughts on THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE.
