Keanu's Crime

09.01.2009

Reeves in BILL & TED

I still have hopes for Keanu Reeves, even though I haven't been impressed by his post-Matrix offerings; I liked CONSTANTINE no matter what people say, but LAKE HOUSE was just bland, STREET KINGS was mildly entertaining at best and DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL was every bit unnecessary as a remake could possibly get. But stepping up as a modern-day Jimmy Stewart? I'm curious.

Reeves' new production shingle Company Films is developing HENRY'S CRIME from a script by THE TERMINAL scribe Sacha Gervasi. The Frank Capra-inspired story follows an every-day bighearted man, to be played by Neo himself, who's put on trial for a bank robbery he didn't commit.

That's a romantic comedy, by the way. I know many already feel that foul SWEET NOVEMBER aftertaste, but still, I can actually picture Keanu in a heartfelt little Capra-esque comedy. AND it's independently financed, ergo outside studio "influence", so it might be something to look out for. Other than that Cowboy Bebop live-action we've been promised for a while.

Extra Tidbit: Can Keanu ever be as funny as he was back in the BILL & TED days?

Really digging the love for Street Kings here.

I agree, Street Kings is one of my favourite cop movies. Didn't disappoint, saw it 3 times in theatres, plenty more after that. Love the Training Day/Harsh Times David Ayer projects, man Keanu FUCKING OWNED SK. Wish it got more love.

Other than that, regarding his post-Matrix work, A Scanner Darkly was okay (strong first half, great turn from Downey Jr.), Constantine was good and could use a sequel and The Day the Earth Stood Still was pretty decent too (although an unneeded remake).

THE RELACEMENTS

There is no one that could've delivered the line," Chicks dig scars, pain heals, glory lasts forever. gentelemen it was an honor to share the field of battle with you". I just wanted to put my high school mpads back on and jump through my television. Keanu has and always will rule.

I like Keanu Reeves alot. Constantine, The Replacements, A Scanner Darkly, and Street Kings are all kick ass movies. Especially The Replacements, I've seen that movie like over 30 times already.

I think Street Kings is kinda underrated. Keanu Reeves was surprisingly effective as a bad ass. And don't forget his supporting role in The Gift.

Bill & Ted's remake now!!!!

He spreads himself over too many genres. Before you make Sci-Fi films, romantic comedies, dramas, comedies, etc., maybe you should stick to one and perfect it to the best of your abilities. Them spread yourself around. I actually liked Street Kings and thought he did a nice job.

***Make a Bill & Ted's sequel already!!

What about A Scanner Darkly? Definitly my favorite post-Matrix (the original one!) Keanu movie.

i think if tarantino ever got keanu to be in one of his movies, i think tarantino could pull another travolta onto keanu and make him a star again
