"The last time you made just a passing reference to KR, one of his defenders was on the thread within minutes, or possibly seconds. It's like a kind of Keanu SWAT team. I love it!" - Frau_Ilsa_Lazlo

About Us

Far out in a small unregarded corner of the Internet lay a message board frequented by about twenty or so regulars. Years spent in unyielding defence of one of the most maligned actors in Hollywood had hardened most of them into cynical misanthropes whose hope in humanity was steadily diminishing with each repetitively-uncreative and usually arboreal insult. Someone dubbed us the 'Keanu SWAT Team', and that is the name we now go by.

One day, I decided that having a website to link to would save a lot of time and trouble; because there are really only so many times one can insist on Keanu's lack of plant cells before one starts getting mad and destroying furniture.

And so WINM was launched in January 2008, initially consisting of no more than a stock supply of counterarguments against common attacks on Keanu's acting. The site eventually extended into a full-blown fansite, and is now possibly the biggest English-language Keanu fansite out there, home also to the largest Keanu Reeves articles and interviews archive to be found anywhere on the web.

These things happen. No one quite knows how.

For those who have wondered how much time we spend on this, we appreciate your concern, and would like to say that most of us are perfectly functional human beings. We are not a bunch of unemployed slobs sitting in our parents' basements and munching on chips. My parents don't have a basement.

We are not in any way officially affiliated with Keanu Charles Reeves. Most likely he does not know we exist. It's probably a good thing. We might scare him.

About the Webmaster

When not defending the good name of Keanu Reeves, I'm a fairly-unknown science-fiction writer currently working as a web developer and copywriter at a financial advisory firm in Singapore. One day, I hope to write movies for Hollywood and take over the world.

Keanu Fan Since: July 2004

Keanu Films Watched: 42

Favourite Keanu Films: The Matrix, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Speed, I Love You to Death, The Devil's Advocate, The Night Before

Least Favourite Keanu Films: Dracula, Point Break, The Matrix Reloaded, the 5 minutes of Johnny Mnemonic I survived through. I will attempt to watch the whole thing one day. Some people claim it's good. But those people also claimed that Point Break was good and that I have horrible taste.
