Simple thread. You've had a year to digest the third film. So now it's time to rank all three.

Poll is here. VOTE!

I swear I voted for 2/1/3, instead it says I voted for 1/3/2. I guess the good ol' pop-up ad caused my vote to go elsewhere.

You cant beat John Wick. It was amazing, Especially on its first viewing.
My only complaint is with it now being 3 movies the excessive beatings from people and cars that he takes get tougher and tougher to believe that he could walk away from them. So for the first movie you can brush it off, but then it keeps happening in 2/3 and becomes tougher to brush off. And I fully understand that these are just movies but.....

Re: It's been a year; rank the three JOHN WICK films, you cowards.

2, 1, 3

2 took everything that was cool and interesting in 1 and expanded the entire world. Became a much detailed and interesting. What I am most interested in seeing is the world and how it works.
Though I mostly liked the Halley Berry and dog stuff, the horses in NYC and the sushi chef villain, I thought 3 was too repetitive and hated how it ended pretty much exactly where it began. Felt like a huge waste of time, though still pretty entertaining.

My biggest disappointment with #2 was the action. It just felt needlessly chaotic and far less coordinated than the other two films. That's the main reason I rank it the lowest. On pure entertainment value, it just doesn't hit the mark like the other two films do, for me.
#3 is a bit convoluted on the mythology/background stuff, but easily has the best action sequences. I could go either way, ranking #1 or #3 as the best depending on my mood, but I wanted to commit to one of them

Halle Berry's character's dogs need their own spinoff trilogy.

Pretty much this.

#1 is Perfection
#2 Expanded the world but the action was completely forgettable. Also negative points for the cliched house of mirrors nonsense.
#3 Action was amazing but the plot was convoluted and forgettable. Also losing a trigger finger is absurd.

2,1,3. At some point in 3 I dozed off because it was too repetitive.

To be fair, he lost a ring finger, not an index finger. I agree with your ranking though. 3 was just TOO much action, if that's possible. There were so many times in the third one that someone could have easily killed JW, but the fight choreography purposely paused so Keanu could block or get in a better position. Granted, that happens at some point on all the movies, but I really noticed it in the last one.

Embarrassed to admit ... the John Wick films are something that is missing from my viewing history ... I have no real reason why.

Some day I will rectify that ... some day.

I don’t know if anyone watched, but the Lionsgate YouTube channel live streamed the first movie tonight. Jamie Lee Curtis hosted.

Lionsgate was doing a 4 week fundraiser to help displaced movie theatre employees.

I already own the BD, but I watched about an hour. Stream quality wasn’t great, but watchable.

1/3/2 here - 1 because it came out of nowhere, 3 has some of the best action sequences of all time and 2 is pretty damn great too, just not as great as the other two.

Fuck now I need to go watch all three again.
