Good Morning, Keanu

Alright folks, we're back for real this time, and a good thing too - we're here just in time for Keanu Reeves' 50th birthday! Imagine if we'd missed that! Horrible, horrible, the thought's too horrible to comprehend. The original dude-brah has already entered his Sad Keanu phase - I'd be a monster to exacerbate that on this day of his holy conception.

Okay so making fun of Keanu's easy stuff, but I've always found celebrating him, and not just for being a pretty young thing, easy stuff too. I've always been a fan. Hell you won't find many people defending him in Bram Stoker's Dracula for instance, but I have never taken issue with him in it. I think Coppola uses him well, anyway. (I don't know if I should've said that out loud, you all might've just lost confidence in my opinions.)

So what's your favorite Keanu performance? I'm always gonna go to Speed. He makes that (delightfully) ridiculous movie seem effortless.

speed: mostly for the buzz cut

I would have to go with Speed as my number one too but I'm very fond of A Walk in the Clouds as well.
