Gizmodo Movie Night: The 5 Best Movies Ever

Image: Supplied

Regular readers will know that John Wick 2 has been one of our most anticipated movies of 2017. And it's finally dropping in Australia this week! To celebrate, here are 5 of our favourite movies of all time.

This movie is just Keanu Reeves killing basically everyone over car theft and puppy murder. And it's the BEST. Unless you're like me and can't handle cruelty to animals. I just pretend that bit doesn't exist.

John Wick

Stan: An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him with New York City as his bullet-riddled playground.

Watch it now on Stan.

John Wick

I will watch anything that uses guns this ridiculously and excessively that the term "gun-fu" is used to describe it.

John Wick

The minimal explanation of the criminal underworld is interesting. A lot is left for audiences to guess. It feels like purposeful mystery rather than a lack of care for the plot. I dig it.

John Wick

Reeves did 90% of his own stunts on this movie. He is our God now.

Why are you still here when you could be booking tickets to the sequel?

    I have a feeling that Gizmodo wants us to go watch A Dog's Purpose.

      I have a feeling Gizmodo wants to watch John Wick. All the videos have now changed to John Wick for me.....Someone is still learning the ropes of the CMS. Protip Giz: Put all articles through an editor for approval before publishing.

        Protip: we meant to do this

          Maybe I'm too used to our CMS. It doesn't outright allow content authors to publish. Publish requests are sent automatically (emailed) through a series of content approvers before publish occurs by the CMS.

          edit: OR I need sleep.... hit and a miss......wooooow.

          Protip: Yeah, we figured it out pretty quick that this was a lame article with a dumb repeating joke. John Wick is nice and all, saw it when it came out. Kinda cool, kinda meh at the same time.

          This article wasn't worth writing unless you had genuinely listed four other movies.

          Otherwise it's just lame clickbait.

          Protip: clickbait is lame. Good for your traffic, a dud for your reputation.

          Try harder next time, bro. The same move 5 times is not a cool story, bro.

    Saw this in the Play Store last weekend for $4.99 HD and picked it up. Watch again this weekend.

    You expect me to watch someone kill a puppy and then sit and watch Keanu Reeves trying to act for the length of a movie?

    Yeah. No.

      Obviously you have never seen the movie yet.

        Well, indeed.

        And given that I have pieces of furniture than can outact Mr Reeves at a standing start, and gun-fu is a genre I'd rather chew my own arms off than watch, nor will I.

          It's not really the type of movie where acting is needed. Look at Bruce Willis. Wouldn't ever watch something for his acting. Die Hard is however pretty awesome.

      there's not much acting in it. lots of sweet sweet gun-fu though.

    but how much john could a john wick wick if a john wick could wick john?

    This is ridiculous, none of these 5 movies are Die Hard.

      @beatsbynelly But it isn't Christmas time...

        I expect nothing short of an article from you at Christmas time with DieHard 1 over and over and over... with a bonus 6th movie being DieHard 3. Not set at Xmas time, but simply because it's the 2nd best DieHard and even Bruce Willis hates DieHard 2 ;)

    news flash - John Wick wasnt actually that good - i know this is very subjective due to tastes, but meh.
    i watched it for the first time last week, and although i wouldnt say it was a bad movie, it definitely didnt live up to the cult status it has.

    I see what you did there...
