Keanu Reeves Takes Critics' Views Seriously

Much have been said with his acting. Critics say Keanu Reeves is a wooden, lifeless actor. And in all cruelty, they said that he is not much of the actor that he thinks he is. Not even his role as a non-feeling alien in The Day the Earth Stood Still garnered much praise - even if they had previously said that he is good at playing a cold individual.

Keanu Reeves can never please the critics. Especially not now when anime fans are threatening to kill Fox for giving the Spike Spiegel role to Keanu for the live action film Cowboy Bebop. Critics don't like Keanu Reeves much. But he's patiently giving them a time of his day.

When interviewed about movie critics, producer writer Robin Wright Penn of The Private Lives of Pippa Lee said that she is never a believer of critics as they never went to a critic's school anyway. But Keanu thinks otherwise. He said that a critic's view is very crucial. He said that they're like drops, which will eventually make an ocean.

Keanu didn't feel much the same for his music though, especially when he joined Dogstar. As for music critics, he can only shrug his shoulders and say, "Whatever".This only shows that his passion for films is greater than his passion for music. We can only hope that the day arrives when Keanu Reeves finally earns the nods of his own detractors.

Constantine 2, Anyone?

Keanu Reeves starred in Constantine. And he had said he wouldn't mind doing another Constantine movie. This is good news for all fans out there. However, when will the sequel be done, if it will ever be done?

Reports for Constantine 2 happened as early as months after the film was shown worldwide. In 2005, Constantine raked in $230 million worldwide - enough for the producer to look forward in doing a sequel. But a year later, plans have changed and a sequel wouldn't be done. Instead, a prequel is in the works.

It's 2009 now and everything still in the planning stages. There's supposed to be a team of writers working on the script already. But recent reports says that producer Lauren Shuler Donner is still looking for one. Well, it might just take them a few more years to get this movie plan going.

Keanu Reeves Donated $10,000 to Charity

Keanu was able to give $10,000 to the kids, via the Toyota Celebrity Grand Prix held last weekend. The race was for charity and each participating celebrity was paid not to add up to their own bank account, but to the kid's charity as chosen by the race's sponsor.

However, the winning celebrity racer gets additional $5,000 to his/her choice of charity. Keanu was the rightful winner. So he gets to choose which charity would go the money to. That makes him a donor of a total of $10,000 just by participating and winning the recently concluded race.

Keanu had fun in the event. More than winning, he enjoyed the #11 Toyota Scion tC car that he used for the event. He because of the 5-car pile up that happened during the race, causing the leader Danny Way and four others to lose bid in the competition.

Congratulations once again Keanu!

Keanu Reeves Wins the 2009 Toyota Celebrity Grand Prix

It wasn't much of a shocker. But not everybody had expected it either. Keanu Reeves won the Toyota Celebrity Grand Prix of 2009 last Saturday. It was a big day for the motorcycle racer, now a certified speed car racer, Keanu Reeves.

Keanu Reeves drove through 10 laps in a span of 21:46.973 enough to win the celebrity title. His closest rival, and the player most favored to win, Danny Way crashed into the tire barrier allowing Keanu to pull up and move away from the others to seal the deal.

Keanu was elated, he even claimed he went into a shock when he realized his impending victory. The turn of events made Keanu a real speed racer, very much the man who played Officer Jack Traven in his well-loved action movie with Sandra Bullock. Maybe the Matrix man also knew how to dodge bullets?

Keanu Reeves is Not Selling His Bass Guitar

Keanu Reeves DogstarWhen Keanu Reeves was spotted last week at the Anvil! The Story of Anvil premiere at Los Angeles, reporters can't help but ask a few questions to this Hollywood actor who graced the red carpet.

One question is about his personal association to the film, being once a rock band member himself. Dogstar, as his former band is known, has been dissolved years ago. Keanu Reeves played as the band's bassist, a feat that had forced him to go off the Hollywood limelight for a few years really.

That's the time Keanu Reeves turned down Speed 2 and a lot of other movie offers. He would rather take tours around the globe with his band. The move didn't do much for him though. Dogstar's gone and he's back to Hollywood, making films and movies again, thank God. However when asked, Keanu reiterated that no, he's not selling his bass guitar. Could it be an indication that he might just go back to playing again?

Keanu Reeves for Passengers

Keanu Reeves PassengersThere's another science fiction movie lined up for Keanu Reeves. However, this one's still in the script level. It might take a few more revisions and editing before the actual filming began - not to mention that Keanu still has a couple of movies to do lined up this year and the next.

The film is tentatively entitled Passengers, wherein Keanu would play as man traveling in a spaceship on autopilot. Keanu is suspended or asleep during the entire travel, which would actually take hundreds of years. However, he woke up a century too early. And that means he wouldn't reach the destination and would die in the spaceship alone. That's why he created a cyberwoman to be his company. That's where the story winds up.

Will Keanu Ever Watch Point Break Live?

Keanu Reeves Point Break LiveHow good is it if our very own Keanu Reeves will play the Johnny Utah role in Point Break live, which was derived from his own action adventure flick Point Break? That would surely take the house down.

Point Break the movie is now taken live and straight into the theaters with a twist. Johnny Utah, which role Keanu played in the movie, is to be played by a clueless audience. There would be no preparations, no scripts, and no backgrounds given on the chosen actor prior. Everything will be given to him outright.

Right now, Point Break Live is in San Francisco. Maybe Keanu would be game enough to drop by? Well, we can only wish that. Keanu doesn't want to have anything to do with his prior movies, so it seems. Just take Speed. He didn't do Speed 2. And he don't want to do Speed 3 either.

Keanu Favored to Win at the Toyota Celebrity Grand Prix

Keanu reeves Toyota celebrity grand prixWith a 14-1 odds, Keanu Reeves may just take home the trophy for this year's Toyota Celebrity Grand Prix. His closest rival is Danny Way, with all his extreme sports experience.

But as for Keanu, he's has good background in motorcycle driving. And it's not because he's the Speed star and can maneuver buses. Keanu has formal training at Freddy Spencer and had participated in many bike racing events.

This might be the first time he's doing a race in a car. But when it comes to the technicalities that a newbie racer has to learn, the Toyota trainers says he's almost as good as the pros. We do hope that our guy wins this one. All for charity.
