One film took the head-shot, the other gave us a headache. Matthew Sardo and EJ Moreno battle over these two movies as they both expand their respected universe but both lacked a certain something that made the originals special.
We take a hard look at ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ and ‘LEGO Batman.’

Never heard of Matt Sardo?
For starters, he made the Kessel Run in less than 11 parsecs. Prior to that, he gave Doc Brown the idea for the flux capacitor and led the Resistance to victory over SkyNet – all while sipping a finely crafted IPA. As a radio host, he’s interviewed celebrities, athletes and everyone in between. He’s covered everything from the Super Bowl to Comic-Con.
