I had to re read the article, my bad but here it is!

Awesome. You know, it's interesting you mention the idea of pop movie stars because there's this particular fascination with Keanu Reeves. I mean, he has his own memes, and I actually discovered a blog dedicated entirely to curating news about him and interviews with him. It's called "Whoaisnotme.net"

Are the showings of the movies at TIFF online or in a theater? If I was to guess I would guess that Keanu will turn up for one of them, but which one?

It's ok, it was for the better. My webhosts told me how to optimise things, so the database works a lot faster and more efficiently now, and things load more quickly.

From TIFF's facebook page, via a comment on CK:


Keanu Reeves had this to say about the retrospective playing at TIFF Bell Lightbox in his honour.

" .. the eleven films being screened by the TIFF were personally life changing and I am grateful to have been a part of them - On behalf of the filmmakers thank you to the festival for the opportunity to having them be seen as they were meant to be - on the big screen .. I hope you enjoy them ..regards and appreciation, Keanu "

Whoa. The Films of Keanu Reeves is on now until April 5.

... remember Peter Travers? one of the movie critics who never missed the slightest opportunity to put KR down (and btw, Mr.Travers, Street Kings doesn't want to be another LA Confidential, and KR is not trying to be Russell Crowe. Just read Ellroy's White Jazz and maybe you'll understand Street Kings a little bit better ;))
No, Mr.Travers, it's not easy being green. at all.

Perfect example of how a critic is so blinded by his prejudiced perceptions that he can't see a brilliant portrayal when it is right in his face. Traver's loss as far as I can tell. I would not listen to him if he said the sky was blue.
This review is a few years old and since then, as we know, Travers had a personal one on one interview with Reeves. I would not be a bit surprised if he changes a lot of his "opinions". Being so narrow minded is a crime against our better nature and a dis service to all who read it. Rant over.

source: google alerts/mr-reeves.com

The love of the people for Keanu – part man, part adorable Andrex puppy – was never better expressed than by the bizarre ‘sad Keanu’ meme. ‘Sad Keanu’ was sparked off by a simple paparazzi picture of Keanu sitting on a bench eating a sandwich, and looking a bit, well, like he was thinking that he needed to do a load of washing when he got home but he really didn’t want to and it was kinda bumming him out. This picture kickstarted a global internet meme, there were websites, amusingly captioned pictures on Facebook, t shirts, mugs, mouse mats, etc, etc. The weird thing is, people seemed really concerned. This wasn’t some privileged, millionaire movie star, this was Keanu, our mate. Keanu touched the heart of millions with a moment of existential angst, he couldn’t be sad, not Keanu. It made you want to bake him cupcakes.

er. someone did. bake him cupcakes. twice ;)

Well? Did he diss Backdraft (in another interview) because they didn't hire him or because he didn't like the way the movie turned out?
