Keanu Classic: Speed

27 March 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.

John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately.  As readers of previous instalments will remember Keanu Reeves was one of my teenage girl crushes alongside Christian Slater. Given that I was a teen during the early noughties these choices might seem a little odd to some of you. Me and my friend though had different tastes to our more mainstream friends – and my choices make a little more sense than Val Kilmer and cartoon character Gambit. Keanu celebrated 50 last year but doesn’t »

Joel Silver’s Dream Venice Post Office Project Is Stalled and In Debt (Exclusive)

26 March 2015 6:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Politicos, business titans and stars gathered for a press gala in the fall of 2012 to hear the big news: Joel Silver would bring his movie company to Venice’s historic post office. To hear the producer and his backers talk, the move would unleash a creative renaissance for both Silver and the beach community.

“The man who brought us ‘The Matrix,’ ‘Lethal Weapon’ and ‘Predator’ will have an address that matches his grand imagination,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa proclaimed to a crowd that included actor Tobey Maguire and former Yahoo chief Terry Semel, his longtime pal from their days at Warner Bros. Silver pledged to “help change the paradigm of Hollywood,” by turning a refurbished Venice post office into a creative hub, a center for technological innovation and a meeting place for friends and neighbors.

Nearly two and a half years after that elaborate rollout, though, work on Silver »

Watch: 'The Matrix' Lobby Fight Sequence Recreated in Lego Form

23 March 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been 16 years since The Matrix changed action films forever by introducing the bullet time craze, making way for tons more slow-motion in the genre. Sadly, the sequels didn't have as big of an impact (though I'll defend The Matrix Reloaded to the death), but that doesn't stop the original from being one of the most iconic action films of the past 20 years. And that's because of incredible sequences like the iconic lobby fight in which Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) attempt to save Morpheus (Laurence Fisburne) from the building where he's being held by Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) and his cronies. Now one of the film's fans and a Lego enthusiast has recreated the scene in block form. Watch! Here's Snooperking's Lego recreation of The Matrix lobby fight scene from Reddit (via Vulture): The original post on Reddit says this little recreation took about 160 hours of »

This Amazing Lego Remake of 'The Matrix' Lobby Shootout Might Be Better Than the Original

22 March 2015 11:51 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Everyone remembers the slow-motion lobby shootout from The Matrix. Even if you've somehow never seen the film, you know that scene. It's an icon of action cinema, and was, at one point, one of the most beloved, imitated, spoofed, ripped-off and re-enacted scenes in movies.

Video: The 5 Best Films of Keanu Reeves

Now, over 16 years after the film was released, YouTube genius Snooperking -- who was also responsible for last year's epic Lego version of the Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens trailer -- has crafted this breathtaking, loving re-creation of the iconic action sequence.

Filled with more guns than you could shake a gun at, along with the film’s trade-mark slow-motion bullet dodging and wall-walking, this tribute is everything a Matrix-fan could want.

Especially the surprise twist ending.

Although, it is admittedly a little unnerving that all the Lego mini-figures have smiles on their faces as they are getting blown apart or murdering »

David Tennant talks A.K.A. Jessica Jones and visiting Marvel

17 March 2015 1:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Announced back in January, former Doctor Who David Tennant will be taking on the role of Zebediah Killgrave aka Purple Man in the upcoming Netflix show A.K.A. Jessica Jones, which is set to debut next year.

“This is something I grew up with,” Tennant said at North Carolina’s Wizard World (via withanaccent.com). “It’s like my eight year old self doesn’t know what to do with himself. I think comic books are a glorious wonderful art form and I think Marvel is one of the things that we’ll be looking back on in a hundred years’ time they’ll be one of the cornerstones of our cultural existence.”

Tennant also had a trip round Marvel recently and seemed to have grand old time. “I got shown around and clever people gave me comic books and told me how they got made and met people that spent their day doing that stuff, »

Keanu Classic: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.

John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. Post-John Wick viewing I arrived home, logged onto Amazon and purchased an alarming amount of films, including Johnny Mnemonic (don’t worry, it was only 8p!). I thought I’d gotten through the Keanu phase at secondary school but it seems that it is now back with  a vengeance. It all started after seeing that little known film The Matrix which was released right in the middle of my school career. Most of my »

Mike Colter says Luke Cage is “geared towards an adult audience”

4 March 2015 1:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mike Colter is set to play Luke Cage in A.K.A. Jessica Jones next year before getting his own series shortly thereafter. We’ve already heard that Daredevil will be taking on a “dark and gritty” tone which is unlike the McU movies, but what can we expect from Luke Cage?

“It’s geared towards an adult audience, which is something that will be different from the Marvel Cinematic Universe that you’ve seen before on the big screen,” he told IGN. “I’m excited about playing the character because I’ve read the comic books. They’re very detailed, gritty; the world they’ve written in the comic books is very clear. Marvel does a fantastic job about bringing human stories – because you’re telling big stories with a heart at the centre of it – and that’s what connects all of the characters to our audience members.

Kanye West Admits His Ego is His 'Biggest Achilles Heel,' Internet Calls Him a 'Loser'

3 March 2015 7:18 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kanye West is back to having no filter.

The always outspoken 37-year-old rapper gave a lecture at the prestigious Oxford University on Monday, and true to form, gave us some gems that could only come from Kanye being Kanye. Speaking in "stream of consciousness," the "Only One" rapper opened up about everything from his egotistical reputation, getting overshadowed by Nicki Minaj on his own album, and why he considers intense The Matrix the "Bible of the post-information age."

But before you start calling him "crazy," Kanye admitted that he actually likes the term.

"That's one of my favorite ones ... to be called crazy," he said via Oxford University student newspaper The Tab. "People say I have a bad reputation. I think I've got the best reputation in the building. They want you to have a reputation of tucking your black nail polish into your pockets and sitting in the corner of the class, and not fighting »

Film Nerd 2.0 digs into the notion of 'what is appropriate' between the PG and R

2 March 2015 9:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been a strange couple of weeks of films with the boys. First, we had a period of almost three weeks where I didn't get to see them because of all sorts of different scheduling issues. The hardest part of adjusting to life as a divided family is making my peace with the very different way the kids and I spend time together now. I've gone from having hours with them every day to having a handful of hours every couple of weeks. It makes time feel much more precious, but it can add a layer of stress, as well, because I'm constantly aware of the ticking clock. I know the boys feel it, too. We talk when I don't see them, but it's not the same. You try having a serious conversation on the phone with a seven-year-old. It's just not satisfying, no matter what. Kids today don't really »

Release Date & Official Synopsis Revealed For The Wachowskis' Netflix Series 'Sense8'

2 March 2015 2:29 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Okay, so "Jupiter Ascending" was a total nightmare and let's never talk about it again, but for those who still hope that The Wachowskis can truly deliver the kind of original sci-fi fans have been waiting for since "The Matrix," they have another shot with Netflix's "Sense8." And it already sounds fucking bonkers. "We told Netflix we were like, 'We're only interested in doing this. It's going to be so hard, it's not very much money. We're only interested in it if we can do anything. And I mean anything. Like crazy psychic orgies with all sorts of different bodies.' And they were like, 'Yeah sure, cool great,' " Lana Wachowski said last month, with Andy adding: "It's science fiction but it's more about humanity. It's about everything...we have live births…Babies coming out of vaginas…" Um, okay. Now here's an actual synopsis that sounds a little more manageable, »

‘Man of Tai Chi’ energizes viewers through its visuals, not its cluttered story

21 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Man of Tai Chi

Written by Michael G. Cooney

Directed by Keanu Reeves

United States/China, 2013

The world of underground fighting is given the cinematic treatment yet again in Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut, Man of Tai Chi. Set in Beijing, the movie follows the exploits of a kind if slightly misguided young man named Tiger Chen Linhu (Tiger Chen), who works as a postal delivery man by day and practices Tai Chi with his master Yang (Yu Hai) during his time off. Tiger has been seduced by the controversial idea of demonstrating that Tai Chi can be used for pure combat, prompting him to enter a legitimate martial arts tournament. His unexpectedly impressive skills catch the eye of one Donaka Mark (Keanu Reeves), the multimillionaire owner of a security company who also organizes illegal fighting matches for the pleasure of a high paying, exclusive public. As Tiger is sucked into »
