Are they doing a feature film this time?

That's like asking why Airplane didn't have any well-drawn characters. They're both comedies, fercryinoutloud.

The Big Lebowski
Fargo
The Man Who Wasn't There
Barton Fink
A Serious Man


Yeah, it would be common knowledge if good comedies had well-drawn characters like, you know, good comedies.
You just went full Drinkanddestroy. Never go full Drinkanddestroy.

There are different ways to do comedies. There are character-driven comedies, and there are those, like the Airplane films and Monty Python, where character is pretty much unimportant and situation is everything. Two roads to the same destination: laughter. The first John Wick film gave me plenty of chuckles the first time I saw it in the cinema. Subsequently, on blu, I've had several encore laugh-fests. The previews for Wick 2 promise more of the same. I'll be very happy to double down.

YOU are the one who just went full D&D ("I don't watch comedies"). You are a pathetic, mirthless lot. Don't try to spoil things for the rest of us.

The John Wick films are supposed to be based on a character, whose name I just forgot, can you help me there?

Anyway, this whole thing is off topic. There are a few (like, five) chuckles based on cool situations, like I wrote in another thread - and some good action (just not good enough to justify the movie by itself) in John Wick. It's still not a real movie. Now, based on the good stuff in chapter 1, I hope they're doing a real movie this time.

I can't decide whether to see this first, or the Lego Batman movie. Why I can't I watch both simultaneously?

Flip a coin or just cut the good choices and go for the bad (Fifty Shades Darker).

Roman leg for the franchise, couldn't miss it. Much more varied as to locales and kind of fights is much better than the first one. I give it a 7/10, but it could have been higher if, instead of Gerini, they had picked up a watchable woman. I think I saw her before only in a Verdone comedy where she played the punky wife. Now I don't care whether an actress can play, I want her to be good looking: she wasn't when she was young but now she's simply ugly.  And they even dared to have drop her clothes, fortunately revealing not much.  Who does the casting these days?
