Jackass 4.5 [AKA Jackass FourPointFive] (2022, dir. Jeff Tremaine)

A compilation of additional stunts and extra footage not used in the release cut of Jackass Forever. More of the same, with no discernable drop in quality from the material used in its movie progenitor. For some, that’ll be all the recommendation that’s needed.

No trailer online that I could find, but here’s a representative clip.

Jackass Forever (2022, dir. Jeff Tremaine)

A decade after Jackass 3D, Johnny Knoxville and friends old and new assemble for more lo-fi stunt stupidity. More of the same, though with the added pleasure of age playing its part. The commitment to slapstick male genital abuse throughout is kinda impressive. Jackass 4.5 soon followed.

Here’s the trailer.

Henchman: The Al Leong Story (2018, dir. Vito Trabucco)

A documentary about Hollywood’s most recognizable stuntman and movie henchman. A crowdfunded production made with affection and respect for its subject. Inevitably for fans, but nevertheless fascinating, not least because the film gives a rounded picture of Leong’s work, life, and personal struggles. Recommended.

John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017, dir. Chad Stahelski)

The eponymous retired hitman is compelled to honour a debt. Less fresh than the 2014 original, but Chapter 2 gains confidence as it proceeds, expanding the series’ world and throwing in a few inventive action set-pieces. Laurence Fishburne cameos hammily.
