Keanu Reeves / King Vacant: My Favorite Actors and their Movies

I really don't know how to describe the cinematical relationship between Keanu Reeves and me.

All the years I tend to watch every movie with Keanu involved although I have to agree to the common opinion that he has a lack of quality in his acting compared to other actors or acting in general as we know it.

In his career there have many ups and downs so far and the range is imho tremendous. Even after the "Big Bang" with Matrix he neither had a kind of "winning nor a loosing streak" in means of good or bad films.

A little example:

I absolutely idolize films like "The Devil's Advocate, Matrix, Constantine, Speed, Dracula, My Own Private Idaho".
Then he tortured me with taking parts in really terrible films like "Threesome, Johnny Mnemonic, The Watcher, Henry & Julie and Thumbsucker". All the other films position somewhere in between without beeing real highlights or dropouts...

Well, im looking forward to "Man of Tai Chi" and "47 Ronin" :)

Update: Man of Tai Chi was more or less like expected.
47 Ronin I really enjoyed it, kind of underestimated by a lot of people I know.

Now I'm really waiting to see John Wick and Knock Knock :)



Prediction: Never is going to be nominated for an Oscar.
Another 10 wins & 19 nominations.
