“John Wick: Chapter 4” has been doing gangbusters since its opening weekend, annihilating every other movie, including DC’s latest superhero offering “Shazam 2,” and according to the stats, it’s good old toxic masculinity that’s taking it to the top. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the primary driving force for Wick’s success is men, who have been flocking to the theaters to see the film: John Wick 4‘s performance was fueled by males, who made up nearly 70 percent of ticket buyers, while more than 55 percent of the audience was between ages 18-34, according to PostTrak. And the movie accounted for more than 60 percent of all foot traffic,

Great! A movie that doesn’t feature a 120-pound Uber-chick kicking 200-pound male butts!

I’m all for presenting masculinity in a respectful, responsible view, but John Wick’s not it. I’ve owned and used firearms for over 40 years, I respect them and use them responsibly. I presently own several and will continue to do so until I’m too feeble or incompetent to. I’ll then give them to my nephews or sell them. Now, I’ve watched one John Wick movie and was disgusted by the the simple minded use of firearms. It was like some childish video game. This usage is, I believe, part of the problem with our society. Guns have been portrayed on the screen for decades, but there used to be messages where the good guys would prevail and show ‘it takes a good guy with a gun’. Now people cheer on anyone committing carnage, for any reason. They’re almost blood thirsty.

Like The Matrix trilogy, this series keeps building on itself in an attempt to outdo each predecessor. And this one was the worst of every Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and John Wick movie combined. I hope they didn't pay the scriptwriters too much. And although her part was small, there WAS a one-upping female costar but she proved to at least be mortal. Still, a fun movie. If there is to be a fifth segment I recommend a good prequel. Maybe a normal, married John Wick who only kills believable bad guys at night - not every minute of every day.

Healthy children and teens likely don’t need COVID-19 vaccinations, according to updated guidance posted on the website of the World Health Organization (WHO) on Tuesday. WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) met last week to create a revised roadmap for COVID vaccinations. The new roadmap defines three priority groups — high, medium and low — based on the "risk of severe disease and death" when contracting the virus. Healthy kids between 6 months and 17 years old are now deemed low priority. The agency said that for this group, "traditional essential vaccines" for illnesses like rotavirus, measles, polio and pneumococcal conjugate have a greater impact.

When you’re a far-leftist district attorney prosecuting the man the left hates the most, and you have lost the Washington Post, you might want to rethink your position. This is the situation in which New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg finds himself as he continues functioning as the head of the progressive spear to be used to kill former President Donald Trump’s chances of occupying the White House once again. The Post’s editorial board published an op-ed titled “The Trump indictment is a poor test case for prosecuting a former president,” in which the authors cast doubt on the chances that Bragg will be able to carry out a successful prosecution

After being indicted by a Manhattan grand jury, former President Donald Trump is expected to be arraigned in court on Tuesday, a law enforcement source has told Fox News. Judge Juan Merchan is the trial judge presiding over the case, which stems from District Attorney Alvin Bragg's investigation into alleged hush money payments Trump made to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016. Trump is scheduled to be arraigned at 2:15 p.m. in Merchan's courtroom on the 15th floor at 100 Centre Street in New York City. In addition to Trump's personal attorney Joe Tacopina, a second source has confirmed that Trump has made arrangements with the district attorney's legal team

Earlier today, I wrote about how the outgoing board of Disney’s Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID), the quasi-governmental agency that ran Disney’s Florida properties until Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state legislature dissolved it, enacted a series of covenants and development agreements that purported to keep control of the district in the company’s hands. The new board for the renamed Central Florida Tourism District — which DeSantis handpicked and put in place — worried that the actions neutralized the board’s authority, but Disney forgot who it was messing with. “We’re going to have to deal with it and correct it,” board member Brian Aungst Jr. told the Orlando Sentinel.

Trump is expected to appear in court on Tuesday. The indictment has been filed under seal and will be announced in the coming days. The charges are not publicly known at this time. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office has been investigating the former president in connection with his alleged role in a hush money payment scheme and cover-up involving adult film star Stormy Daniels

Now comes word that one outlet actually went so far as to ban reporters from using the term “transgender” to describe the transgender shooter.
