I read WordPress: The Daily Post a few days ago and it caught my eye….
You get to spend a day inside your favorite movie, tell us which one that is, and what happens to you while you’re there.
I thought about a few of my favorites, Pretty Woman or Under The Tuscan Sun. I didn’t post but in my mind, I chose Midnight in Paris. I would spend the day in Paris and embark on a time travel adventure in the evening. But I’ve changed my mind….
Keanu Reeves as John Wick, is grieving the loss of his wife when Russian criminals break into his house to steal his 1969 Ford Mustang and eliminate the last gift from his late wife. Poor doggie Daisy.
I would step right into this movie for a day.
I’d have to lose about 30ish Lbs so I wouldn’t appear ready for food instead of ready for action…
I’d wear all black….
I’d get that Brazilian straight hair, black….
I’d get killer stilettos…
I’d be the Bonnie to John’s (Keanu’s) Clyde….
I’d spend the whole day kickin’ butt, no names, with my boo….Call me John Wick (Keanu)
I know what you’re thinking, we’ve seen this “anger-revenge” type movie before. Liam Neeson is the King of the “anger-revenge” genre but here’s what I like-love about John Wick/Keanu Reeves…
John Wick has a sense of humor even in the midst of a heart wrenching and gruesome situation…
John Wick doesn’t say much and shouldn’t have to because action speaks louder than words….
John Wick’s reputation proceeds him. What he was and who he is has already been established. He returns to the places of his past and “everybody knows his name”….
John Wick has music as a sidekick. The soundtrack has such an impact on setting the tone and enhancing the thrilling action in this movie. I’ve downloaded a few of my favs….
I’ve always believed that Keanu Reeves had that sweet simple unassuming sex appeal.
As John Wick, he appears to be an average guy with a nice car and cute little dog but underneath he’s so much more.
The mature Keanu is long, lean and in great physical shape. Those slow-mo action shots with that music was evv-errr-yyything!
“Everyone keeps asking me if I’m back. I didn’t have an answer at first but now, yeah, I’m thinkin’ I’m back!!
Yes you are, Keanu!
Of course it’s worth the big screen! I hope to see it again, rent it on Redbox then buy it and watch it over and over again.
