‘John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum’ Has One of the Best Action Scenes Ever!

The John Wick franchise has made a name for itself by being the ultra-raw and violent version of the classic action star story. This isn’t like the Jason Bourne movies or the Mission: Impossible films. This isn’t James Bond or one of the Taken films. This is Keanu Reeves’ epic, blood-splattered John Wick; an assassin gone rogue and now hunted by the secret society of assassins around the world.

John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum is the most high-octane installment so far, featuring mind-blowing and sometimes wince-worthy gory action scenes that never seem to come to an end. One such action scene that I watched again yesterday is a scene featuring Keanu Reeves’ John Wick and newcomer to the franchise Halle Berry’s Sofia taking on a mob of thugs as they escape a gangster’s palace.

Who’s Your Favorite Catwoman?

Catwoman, she’s one of the most iconic DC Comics characters of all time. She also happens to be one of my favorite comic book characters for her sleek catsuits and her incredible ability to kick serious butt. Several women have taken the mantle as the feline and very capable femme fatale and today, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I thought she would be a perfect fit. Enjoy!

Julie Newmar

The first major appearance for Catwoman was on the iconic 60s’ Batman series and the actress who brought her to life was Julie Newmar. I don’t know anything about this version of Catwoman but I couldn’t leave her off of the list considering that she holds so much importance to Catwoman’s time on the small screen.

Eartha Kitt

Before you had Wesley Snipes making history as Blade or Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther you had Eartha Kitt as the first African-American actress to play Catwoman in the 60s’ Batman series. She wasn’t playing the role of Batman’s love interest in the series but she was still able to kick some serious butt and pave the way for other black actresses to play the character (Halle Berry and in the near future, Zoe Kravitz.) That’s pretty awesome.

Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer is undoubtedly the most iconic version of the character. Transforming from a timid, glass-wearing secretary into a confident, dangerous and very alluring lady in a remarkably shiny catsuit with a whip, Pfeiffer is the best thing about Batman Returns.

Halle Berry

Okay…this is my first time seeing this version of Catwoman’s outfit and it’s definitely cool, especially, I’m sure, for guys, but unfortunately the only superhero film to ever be helmed by a black woman would be deemed one of the worst superhero movies of all time.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway would be the next actress to squeeze into a tight black suit and catch Batman’s fancy as the fascinating Seline Kyle. Now, unlike the other Catwomen who were called Catwoman in their respective roles Nolan referred to her only as Selina, changing her storyline just a bit. Undoubtedly, she’s one of the best things about the film.

Camren Bicondova

And last but not least, there is Camren’s portrayal of the iconic character but what makes her so different is she is the only version that is shown as a teenager who grows up over a course of seasons on the show. That’s pretty cool.

And then, we’ll have Zoe Kravitz next. I can’t wait to see how she looks as this character. *squeal*

So, of these six versions of the iconic Catwoman, which is your favorite? For me, undoubtedly my favorite, despite Michelle’s clear iconism, my favorite Selina is Anne Hathaway. I think she’s truthfully beautiful, I love her dagger heels, and plus, she’s part of Nolan’s films and I love his concept of these classic DC Comics characters.

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum’ Is a Truly Fantastic Action Movie

I love a good action movie and John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum is undoubtedly one of the best I’ve seen.

A couple of years ago I watched John Wick: Chapter 2 and it wasn’t bad but I wasn’t thoroughly impressed. I only watched half of the film and never chose to finish it. Parabellum never suffers from a boring plot or lack of action sequences. The stunts in this movie are phenomenal, the characters were exceptional, and boy, was it everything I wanted and more.

Let me warn you though, John Wick: Chapter 3 is not for the faint of heart.
