I'm glad we're on the same page fredxr2d2! How did you like the movie? I thought it was good...not as good as Saving Private Ryan, but definitely worth a rent, if not a purchase.

John Wick

In spite of some of the most egregious color grading I've ever had to put up with, this is most definitely a contender for Tier Gold. This was a very dark movie, filmed mostly at night...

I can't recall seeing the trailer but I would imagine they purposely left out scenes in the maze itself, for that would have been somewhat of a *spoiler*. As I said in my review Phantom,...

Whoa! I can hardly believe you are giving this a 1.5 (and that you had originally placed it even lower)! I have to respectfully disagree with you on this one Russ, for this clearly deserves a Tier Bu...
