Game of Thrones 806 - The Finale and John Wick 3 Review

Episode 352 of The Harold & Maudecast: Ghost vs John Wick's Dog for the Throne

Sarah and Jake review JOHN WICK 3: PARABELLUM and the much anticipated Game of Thrones Finale.

After 8 seasons, millions of memes, cosplay and viewing parties, Game of Thrones has come to an end. The finale episode aired on HBO, Sunday, May 19th breaking records with 19.3m viewers. Lucky for the Showrunners, a plastic water bottle (like its predecessor the Starbuck's cup) managed to out Trend the overwhelming negative reaction to the finale. The finale left many threads untied for the potential spinoffs and prequel that is already in pre-production. We found ourselves amongst those who were less than satisfied with the hectic, deliberate tie-up of this incredible story. But we can back up up every point.

Our Game of Thrones finale review is first up on the podcast, John Wick 3 Review Starts @ 43:52.

John Wick: Chapter 2 - Review

In this week's Now Playing Movie reviews on The HMC, John Wick: Chapter 2. Keanu Reeves is back as John Wick in this sequel to the knock out surprise kick ass hit of 2014. This time around he's got a new dog, and some new frenemies.

Strap in tight cause this ride is fast from the jump. After John Wick ties up some loose ends with his Russian pals he quickly finds that living a quiet life in the suburbs with his dog is never to be. Forced to carry out a task that will drag him deeper into the world of Assassins, Wick finds himself with a very large bounty on his head. Wick's got a few returning allies, chop shop man, Aurelio (John Leguizamo), Continental Hotel Manger, Winston (Ian McShane) and some new ones, Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne). He's also got some new adversaries fellow assassins Cassian (Common) and Ares (Ruby Rose).

If you're concerned that the sequel won't live up to the original, never fear. John Wick: Chapter 2 equals, and possibly rivals it's predecessor upping the anti on action whilst keeping its precise, albeit simple storytelling in tact. Director Chad Stahelski aided by Derek Kolstad's script, have built a complex and imaginative universe with the John Wick franchise. With this sequel, it continues to expand and grab you into it, not unlike other (magical) world building stories that have come before it. Thus far, it's the one to beat for 2017. 9/10.
