    John Wick Chapter 2

    Pretty damn tone deaf. 
    What do you mean? I saw it in the theatre, but can't remember it well enough to get what you're referring to. I know I liked it though, even though I prefer the Jack Reacher films over John Wick.
    Um, mass shootout/shooting at a concert. Whatever, as long as it entertains, I guess.
    Oh. Okay, I see. Yeah, I don't really go for that kind of thinking when it comes to films. It just feels like emotional censorship or over-sensitivity to me TBH. I don't think current events should lead to avoiding topics or events in film. On the contrary, actually. I think it makes the films more relevant.
    Much more relevant to anyone with PTSD--that's for sure.

    No, much more relevant to everyone. Obviously it would be pretty fucked up for filmmakers to start making their films to accommodate all the various mental illnesses or to eliminate all the "trauma triggers" that people have. Can you imagine how many subjects that would rule out?? No, I really think that sort of thinking is a seriously slippery slope. I mean, with that kind of thinking, we shouldn't have any violence in movies whatsoever, which is, of course, a very silly idea. No more war movies, no more movies dealing with violent crimes, nothing.

    We can agree to disagree.

    I wrote my thesis on the aesthetics of violence in film, so I'm not in any way suggesting this imaginary slippery slope fallacy that you and every other AMT poster like to bring up; I'm merely stating that the filmmakers were a little delinquent (or just willfully ignorant) for either filming that scene after Bataclan or leaving it in the film after Bataclan. (And if Vegas happened before the film was released, well, then, they were just plain heartless.) The reason being that it took me out of the film completely for its duration. Director's cuts and deleted scenes are fun, and that's where I think a scene such as this belonged considering the timing of its release. I'm sure that it was well choreographed and all other kinds of awesome, but my mind certainly went elsewhere while the scene played out. And I imagine that other viewers were taken out of the scene as well.

    Plus, John Wick is more badass when he's kicking ass unarmed. Duh!

    I'm in no way advocating less violence in film--hell, Bad Boys II is one of my all-time favorite films specifically because of its hilariously nihilistic disregard for basically all human life (and death!)--my argument is that it's just bad filmmaking to include a scene that easily distracts your audience from your art. Unless, of course, your art is political/topical, but this is a John Wick movie we're discussing.

    Imaginary slippery slope fallacy? FYI, I'm actually not generally believer in the slippery slope theory either; I don't think it applies to most subjects, assuming logic is applied in the execution of regulation. I just think that it applies to this one theoretically because okay, people are offended by this.... So what's keeping filmmakers from constantly considering that factor?? Nothing much, if that's what the public comes to expect. And you know what, I don't generally give a damn about people being offended by things. I think the state of being offended is given way too much credit. I guess the same would apply to those who feel taken out of the film because a scene reminds them of some upsetting event (no offense, lol). Hell, I would think the most prevalent feeling for those who thought about real concert shootings at all by watching would be for it to have a stronger emotional impact, which is a good thing.

    wasn't there a Schwarzenegger film that was pushed back for that? was it the title or the content? Collateral Damage I think?

    edit: it was b/c of 9/11. 

    The September 11, 2001 attacks affected the release and editing of the final film. The original trailer was scrapped because it showed a major bomb attack in the United States. The film was originally scheduled to be released on October 5, 2001, but it was postponed due to its terrorism theme and eventually released on February 8, 2002. The premiere was held four days earlier.[1] Collateral Damage was also supposed to include Colombian actress Sofía Vergara in the role of an airplane hijacker; however the scene where Vergara would hijack a plane was cut from the film.[2] The film made $78 million worldwide against its $85 million budget.[3] Warner Brothers released the DVD in the United States on July 30, 2002.[4]

    I don't know, sounds likely. I remember after 9/11 some movie that involved planes into buildings got scrapped altogether or something like that. I also remember that I'm Your Man by Leonard Cohen was pulled from NYC retailers because First We Take Manhattan is on it. That frustrated me a lot.

    Well, I'm a huge fan of Tom Cruise movies - can't think of a single one that I don't enjoy. So I'm sure that helps. While I really enjoy the John Wick movies too, I find them a little lacking in terms of the storyline.

     He's also been in a few really good kind of futuristic action films recently, like Oblivion and another one I can't remember the name of. And don't forget about Minority Report. That's a great movie IMO. I also love War of the Worlds.

    Oh, he's a complete fucking nutbar, lol. But yeah, I don't care about that when I'm watching his movies. He's a really good actor who chooses really good roles in really entertaining movies!

    Eyes Wide Shut is good. Magnolia is good. And actually, Jerry Maguire is not exactly bad for sentimental pap.

    I can't think of any of his other work that I would ever suggest watching, though.
