This movie was one of my favorites growing up! Time traveling, historical figures, and two chilled dudes. What more could a girl want? Every time I watch it, I find jokes that I might have missed or little details that may have passed me by in the first few viewings. It’s a movie that gets better with time and one that I hold dear to my heart!

So, please, if you have time watch Bill & Ted’s Excellent Journey and be EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER!

KEANU (the movie)

The masterminds Key & Peele have done it again (and beat me to the punch)!

They made a movie called KEANU that, I would say, is loosely based on the John Wick.

Just take a look at the trailer and see for yourself!

I can’t wait to laugh my ass off to see this little kitty in action. BRAVO Key and Peele! Bravo!

Keanu…My Hero

Whenever I tell someone that I’ve been working for the past few years on a Keanu Reeves musical, I usually get a chuckle and smirk followed by  the infamous question, “Why Keanu?”

Keanu EW

This usually is followed up with statements like “he’s a terrible actor” or “what would this musical even be about?”. This usually comes from folks who only know a limited section of his filmography career and don’t know his background not only as a performer but also a person.

Granted, when I first started this project, about 4 years ago, I had those same reaction when the name Keanu Reeves was mentioned in a movie trailer or brought up in conversation. I thought he was just a typical Hollywood actor, who only made it because he was good looking and had a lucky break. When I began my research on Mr. Reeves and dig deep beyond Point Break and actually into his life, my eyes were open to Keanu just being a stand up guy. Not only does he take his profession seriously, he also works hard at it and respects everyone in the trade. No wonder he’s worked with so many great directors like Francis Ford Coppola and Gus Van Sant. And of course he would share the screen with Academy Award winning actors like Al Pacino, Denzel Washington, and Charlize Theron because they saw this level of professionalism and respect.

Sure, he’s good at his job but how does that merit him being a good person? How do we know that he’s not just putting on a show because he is an actor, after all.

The proof is in the pudding. Keanu not only took huge pay cuts in films like The Replacements and The Devils Advocate so they could get the actors they wanted (ie Gene Hackman and Pacino) but he also took $50 million dollars of his $70 million earning from The Matrix and paid the special effects and make up staff saying,

“Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.”

Though, I may have started off this project to poke fun at Keanu and in some regards, I still am.  The one thing that has changed is I have developed a true love and admiration for him and his career. Not only that, but I truly do think he’s a most excellent dude and has become a personal hero of mine, to work work hard and never give up on your dreams!

Thank you Keanu!

John Wick 2 is Coming….

Yeah…I’m thinking he’s back…this time for a sequel!

I don’t know about you but I’m super excited that John Wick‘s story line is going to continue.

Sure Hollywood is saturated with sequels but this one is at least an original idea and story. It’s refreshing and makes me hopeful that we will get more. They sure lucked out with Keanu because he’s such a professional and has become the Harrison Ford or Liam Neeson type of unlikely action star, though we always knew he had it in him from the early 90s with movies like Speed and Johnny Mnemonic and I think that’s why this role suited him so well.

Well, since that film has no release date yet and still waiting for Knock Knock to makes its release nation wide here’s a little something to hold us over until then:

Keanu in the Rain

California has been in a three year drought and yesterday Mother Nature was trying to make up for it with a storm of the year.

No one could get out of the rain, not even Keanu who waiting outside, in the rain for the wrap party of a movie he was in. Of course he was super chill and cool about it and wasn’t afraid of getting a little wet.const_212KeanuReeves giphy 20140819-keanu-reeves 004TMR_Keanu_Reeves_019 008ESS_Keanu_Reeves_015 neo03rev 8YEkHV1 imageskeanu-ii

So, don’t fret about the rain and be like Keanu and ENJOY the rain!

Kayne Got Nothing on Keanu

Nice try Kayne. Sure you look sad but are you? You think you have problems having to deal with Kim and being a new dad but come on. You got nothing on Keanu.

He’s been through so much more and had to deal with greater challenges. But who am I to judge? Maybe take a lesson from Keanu and feel this sadness but know it can pass. He can be your teacher, your master. But you have to be worthy. Can you do that, Kayne? Because of you can’t get out of the “sad meme” world and let the pros handle it.

Sorry About the Window

Dear Keanu,
I’m sorry it’s been a while since we’ve seen each other. I’ve been busy with things and I know you have too. We probably needed space but I couldn’t help it.
The restating order can only work for so long and I couldn’t help it but I needed to see your face and breath your air. Sorry about the window.
Yeah. So, I might have broke into your house in the middle of the night. And sure, you thought I was a robber but you know as well as I do that we are meant to be. Yes, to others this sounds like crazy talk but I’m crazy, stupid, in love with you and can’t help it. Big romantic gestures are what you taught me. Like in A Walk in the Clouds you were fake married to the pregnant lady just so her dad wouldn’t be mad at her for boning out of wed lock. And let’s not forget about The Lake House. I know we would be able to find each other even if we were 2 years apart in the future. We could defy physics and reality because that’s the power of love and I know ours is strong, even if you don’t know it yet.
So, as I sit here in your house, waiting to show you how much care. I love you Keanu and we are meant to be.

Love
The lady who broke into your house

People can’t seem to get enough Keanu. Check out the article this was inspired by:
Keanu woke up to a woman, creepily sitting in his living room as 4 am and he handled it like a pro, calming talking to her as he called the police.

Celebrate Keanu

Since a lot of people take the time to celebrate their Birthdays all week, why not do that with Keanu and his work. 

Why not grow out your hair and catch the end of summer and watch Point Break?

Or if that’s not your thing why not binge watch all of The Matrix Trilogy? If those are not your thing have no fear because he’s done pretty much every genre, so you have a lot to pick from: Keanu’s IMDB

Don’t fight this feeling and just relax and enjoy your weekend with Keanu because you know deep down inside, it’s worth it.

Is TV Ready for Keanu Reeves?

TV Programs (yes, programs because I’m an old lady) have as of the past years been on the up and up with successes from series like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad allowing us as viewers to really connect with these characters. Unlike movies we see these characters develop and grow in different ways, good and bad, and see them as more complex beings over a period of time rather than a matter of hours.

This mini-series Keanu is starring in and executive producing is called RAIN and is set to air in 2016.

The character of John Rain is based on writer Barry Eisler’s series of novels, which see the half-Japanese, half-American assassin traveling the world and finding his marks – but never finding human connection. His whole schtick is making his target’s deaths look like natural causes, which should add an interesting puzzle element to the series if the “hits” are where the series’ focus lies.

I’m thrilled to see how Keanu will fair at this new adventure into to television and feel like he’ll really show us what he’s got, really being able to see him open up into something more then just an action hero, “whoa!” guy.

I think the question isn’t if Keanu is ready for TV but are we ready for Keanu on TV? Well, are you?

I know I am.
