This interveiw showed that he already don't think that his memes are "clear fun".To the end of the interview he was more and more nervous and that repeated " you know'," you know". I think he got tired of promotion of "Henry", repeating the same 100 times.Anyway I hope with all my heart the film will have the success he expects.

Some guy named Joe Queenan *REALLY* doesn't like Ryan Reynolds. I LOL'd at this, even if I barely know who Reynolds is. A fun read, and it even has a very small (and positive) Keanu mention:

I kind of enjoyed the interview meself :). He does run circuitous circles around the answers they were apparently trying to elicit :D. In some ways his younger interviews were better for the interviewer if not for him - nowadays when he gets a tad serious he goes up on another level of speak that kind of leaves average folk (which is most of us that aren't Keanu ;) in the dust :-/. I didn't see any clear unhappiness with the meme - the photo that brought it about yes, but I think he's accepted that the meme itself wasn't really about the photograph or even him. And I also suspect he was quite a bit more familiar with the thing than he's let on to this point.

Nervous? I don't think so, I imagine it was more frustration, with questions that have no pat answer, with time constraints - with the usual distance that stands between what he's always asked and what he'd really like to say ;).

I sometimes find myself thinking about what it's like for him - how many people does he really have to talk to, who can keep up with him?

I have had the thought that the Klaatu that he gave us - that was not really the Klaatu of the short story or the original film - was just that little bit beneath his own skin..

Oh man, that site... I came across it years ago and was sad that it seemed to be on hiatus.

*reads the article* ...
The overgeneralisations and narrow-minded heterosexism in that thing kind of disturb me. :\\
More importantly, there's no date.

Ugossip on hiatus? I wish...
at least then I'd be able to avoid that car crash fascination I have with it...
although it's kinda fun to read ardith/Iflipout/Donna typing over and over again her theories on several online forums...
a sad kind of fun... :(

well, I guess the article dates at least from late 2009/early 2010... wasn't the author posting at WINM at some time, asking our input re.fandom and our reasons for being fans? or was it at IMDb? it's been some time, and my memory is failing me.. :(

Matrix 4 in 3D ???
...dunno about that...
considering it's the Wachovskis, they might just pull it off. then again... they might not. Frankly, I would prefer they left it alone. But I loved the Matrix sequels, so...
aaaargh !
guess I'll just have to trust K's instincts. :\\

( how's that for enthusiasm ? ;) :D )


PS - maybe Warner could hire the Wachowskis to write a sequel to Constantine. just sayin'... dreamin'... hopin'... ;) :D

News of new Matrix films fills me with trepidation. Can the damage caused by the sequels be erased by some new films in 3D?

*hisses*
... you know what? bring it on, Wachowskis. Give them the Matrix in 3D. Hell, give it to them in 4D. Give them the special effects and the visual tricks and whatnot. But give us food for thought too. You could do it once, you can do it again. Just don't make it another Speed Racer. Instead, give them more 'damage'.

PLEASE.

We'll see... What makes me happy is that it seems K's got many projects to come, and that's good. ;)
