If there is a franchise that showcases the love of cinema, stuntwork and true unhinged ambition, it's the 'John Wick' franchise.

‘Avatar: The Way of Water’: A Sophisticated Sequel That Expands Every Aspect.
Ever since 2009, the sight of the James Cameron blockbuster 'Avatar' would make me roll my eyes and groan, it was one of those movies that was just so overhyped and talked about to the point of great annoyance so there was a natural distaste for it on my end.
