Occasionally, I’m 100% wrong about stuff.  When I read about the movie ‘John Wick’, I expected another big dumb action flick full of goofy one-liners and the woodenness of Keanu Reeves.  After accidentally encountering it on cable last night, I am happy to say it’s much more than that, full of fun performances, inventive action sequences and fun (albeit incredibly violent and dark) world-building.  Best of all, every sequence features at least one game of “Hey, It’s That Guy!”, which is always a draw for me, and I enjoyed seeing the likes of Dean Winters, John Leguizamo and Willem Dafoe in scene-stealing action (as well as a cameo by Kevin Nash, as underrated an actor as he is overrated as World Champion.)  All in all, it was a fun, not-at-all-Widget-friendly and a little bit irredeemable movie experience, leading to today’s two-gun query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) watched all of ‘John Wick’ repeating, “I have definitely played this mission as Nico Belic,” asking: Who’s the most dangerous fictional practitioner of ultra-violence of them all?

    I gotta go with John Rambo. No one else had quite defined the “one man army” like him.
