Restart

Let’s restart this portfolio:

So I just made the realization that I haven’t been back here in a long while, and decided it was a good time to clean it up and to make it a little bit prettier than it once was. I’ve decided to begin posting regularly about ramblings I may or may not have about my daily professional life, and whatever things seem to inspire me (the fact that Chad Stahelski and David Leitch’s John Wick was so popular that it now has a sequel underway is but one example).

In fact, let’s start with that. I loved John Wick. I thought it was the perfect action flick for what it was, which is quite the statement coming from someone who thought The Raid: Redemption and Dredd set the bar so damn high. But where these two movies did simple plot structure and quick pacing so well, John Wick I find also manages to fill me with pure, unadulterated joy at every silly line that Keanu manages to deliver with such stern vigour.

I would also be ecstatic if there was an HBO or FX spinoff show that followed the hotel. But I could go on forever about that.

That’s all I have to say about that for the time being. My girlfriend is rushing to get to her first show of Ryerson Theater School’s run of Vienna Woods, and I’m currently using her laptop.
