    Early Reactions to JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3- PARABELLUM Hail it as the Best in the Series!
    I usually don't read other people's reviews on movies and as an action movie blogger, I tend to stay clear of all that because I was never one to get swayed by someone's opinion on a film.

This is  not to say that I have never read a review. Of course I have and when it comes to JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3- PARABELLUM, it's very hard to

    THE ACTION FIX: The Classic Elevator Fight Scene from CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
    When people ask me what my favorite movie in the MCU, I usually refer to the adrenaline pumping CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER although AVENGERS: ENDGAME is neck and neck with it now. I love THE WINTER SOLDIER because aside from having a great plot and Robert Redford himself, it also has some of the best action sequences ever in a comic book film. I always say that if there was an MCU martial arts movie...it would be THE WINTER SOLDIER. One of the best sequences from the second movie with
