Paw Prints

paw prints, poem for dog, suhasini -dogwithblog
You left paw prints in my heart forever.

You left paw prints, sweetheart
On your sister’s heart
You changed her in a way
She still hasn’t come to understand

She’s scared of loving
Because she’s scared of losing
Of being left, even more incomplete
Her heart is laminated
With your wet kisses
You still live there
Jumping and frolicking

We’ll let nobody in, sweetheart.

‘John Wick’ Review

John Wick beagle
For the love of the dog – John Wick

There’s no sight sadder on the silver screen than a dog dying. Kill men and their muse and we the viewers can deal with that but you hurt the dog, you jangle all our nerves! We don’t like to see dogs die, period. Not even in fictional realms.  The coolest action flick of 2014 John Wick reaffirms this fact. Here’s John Wick review from the dog.

The plot follows a linear revenge trajectory – Keanu Reeves plays John Wick, a grieving widower and ex-hit man who finds comfort in a Beagle pup Daisy, his late wife’s gift to him. The solace is short lived when a gang of thugs makes the worst mistake of their lives – killing Daisy.

”I lost everything. That dog was a final gift from my dying wife.” – John Wick

A 50 year old Keanu Reeves (still looking a decade younger) reboots himself in the action genre in dapper black; Neo revisited mode. Alfie Allen reprises his act of a cocky rogue quite like his Theon Greyjoy (Game of Thrones). Only this time the winter indeed comes early on him. Throw in stellar cameos from the likes of Michael Nyqvist, Willem Dafoe and Adrianne Palicki and you get the perfect cocktail. The directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski have a stunts background and they have stamped their mark in almost every frame with an action choreography that takes on MMA, Max Payne and Matrix moves. With neon lit clubs, mafia hotels and a code of the assassins, the screenplay shows New York in an alternate universe.  What works for John Wick is that it sets it’s ambitions right, far from the best movie of the year but close to the most stylish take on the action genre that you would see on celluloid.

At the heart of all this violence remains a man’s love for his dog. Hope it serves a chilling reminder that you never hurt a man’s (or woman’s) dog.
