Thanks mook ;-D

How does Point Break not get a thumb's up? It's a modern day classic.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Yeah seriously. That was probably his best movie outside of Bill & Ted's.

Not even close. It JM all the way. Here is how they are ranked:

Johnny Mnemonic
Bill & Ted
Devils advocate
The Replacements
Hardball
A walk in the clouds (I'm a softie)
Constantine
Point Break
Much Ado about nothing
Speed
Matrix
MOPI

If Keanu ever agreed to play a handicapped or learning disabled person it would be a blank check for an Oscar. Oh, and have you ever heard him do an accent? Well, that's probably for the best, but if he did a Rainman, Left Foot or Forrest Gump he would be an automatic for an Oscar. Nobody can do learning disabled like Keanu.

Random thoughts concerning Mookie and the excellence of Keanu Reeves...

I love how you ignore Lake House, like the family secret no one talks about it.

I can't believe you'd call yourself a Keanu fan and then rank Point Break so low. I have a feeling that you're intimidated by the ass-kicking awesomeness of the Swayze.

How do you rank Johnny Mnemonic high and Matrix low? Matrix fans aren't necessarily JM fans because Matrix bridged the genre gap. However, that doesn't seem to work the other way.

Well whatever. This is like ranking the best tasting beers. In the end it doesn't matter. It's still beer and it's still awesome.

Party on, dudes.

Constantine was a great flick. I know it didn't get good reviews but I lied it a lot. Very underrated.

What about Dracula? I could of swore that he says "Nosferatu dude" in one scene.

Just watched two.............

The Number 23.

Lame.
Number one rule of making a film if AussieDodger is going to watch it........ make sure I can see what is happening!
This film has so much blurriness , bleak colouring and darkness that it completely wrecks the whole thing.
Note to all directors - having a film that looks bleak is not cool - it is annoying!!
The story was eh "shrug"
I should have known with it being a Jim Carrey film, but I was being "open-minded".

1/10 and lucky to get that.

Dead Silence (2007)

The people who wrote Saw wrote this , and man do they know how to write an ending. ;-D
I love movies where you go "oh I never thought of that"
Highly highly recommended. ;-D ;-D ;-D
8.5/10
