Okay, so why does going to the wrongly-formatted link lead to a page that says 'Watch Nightcrawler'?

P.S. - this is a Keanu fansite. We are interested in financially supporting his movies, multiple times for the same movie in some cases. We only make use of dodgy free downloads for those films of his that are long out of cinemas and/or extremely hard to get hold of otherwise. So, shoo.

The soundtrack review is pretty funny. I especially love this line:

"This soundtrack is not what you would typically listen to when trying to relax. Rather, it seems to try and do the opposite."

Huh. You think? Why would it do that?

And thank you, Anakin, for taking out the trash.

In the positively reviewed revenge movie John Wick, Keanu Reeves has officially returned as a movie star. Throughout a puzzling career that's seen starring roles in polar opposite franchises, Bill & Ted and The Matrix, Reeves has been a bit of a wild card on the screen. He's not Brad Pitt level popular, but he's also not Nicolas Cage level unpredictable. He's in that interesting middle ground of known but not universally recognized; famous, but not beloved by a band of loyal followers.

.... OI !

What? Has he been comfortably living under a rock for the past 25(assuming that's his age) years? We should probably let him know that this site alone covers every continent there is... guess we can't wake those who are pretending to sleep

The hell? For him to make such idiotic comments about Keanu's fame level indicates those might be the only two of his movies this clown has seen.

yes, the Reeves!

but an entirely excellent film - as you say, cinematography, world-building, action, details, humor - also characters drawn sharply, soundtrack, the whole "look"

I've seen it 5x now, and I keep seeing new things!

I am openly envious of that MmeRenard, you're lucky. Wish I had a chance to see it again before waiting like half a year for it to come out on DVD. Then again, time does tend to go rather fast....

And Luca, you can NEVER read too many comics ;)

Well, I did make a comment on that article that Keanu does have a band of loyal followers. Has been waiting for admin approval for 2 days now. Don't expect to see it on the site ... cowards.

yes, indeed. Do you think I should say anything about the huge outpouring of support and love after the "Sad Keanu"? or better yet, "Thank you, Keanu"? or perhaps the enormous, overwhelming response to his recent Reddit? there are [stupid, callow, platry] people who mock Keanu, but there are also a huge number of people who "get" him and love him - did you catch that in Alicia Malone's interview on Fandango, where Chad correctly said "people want to love Keanu"?

I always feel a little weird about "defending" him because he doesn't really need defending, and because I'm kind of sure it would make him cringe (get over it, man) but still, the level of idiocy in some reviews is still mind-numbing.

I'd prefer to read the reviews of something that I've seen and then I can agree or disagree
