I want to start my 1st top 5 movie by my favorite actors and actresses. At first, I was planning to start it with Cillian Murphy, because I am currently still in my highest hype over him…but I reconsider that thought because 2 Cillian Murphy’s posts in within 2 weeks is more than enough (I’m currently keeping 3 movie reviews for next month) and I also think that it wouldn’t be fair for my other favorite actors. So, in the end, I’m going to begin this series of top-5 from my favorite people in movie industry with Keanu Reeves.
The thing with Keanu Reeves is, at least for me, he tends to look extremely gorgeous in an extremely boring movie or look gorgeous in extremely great movies. Let’s look at Sweet November!! My God, he is so damn gorgeous in that movie…I literally biting my lips watching that movie, but the story sucks big time. At first I watched the whole show and then I always fast-forwarded it just to see Keanu. The recent movie was Street King, he is so hot in that movie, but the movie is so guessable. However, I’m not going to start saying that he looks bad in these 5 movies that I think as his best movies…he always looks gorgeous and makes my heart beats faster.
Enough with his beautiful physical being!! In term of acting…well, we all know he is not the kind that going to win any Oscar 😉 but he is also not bad… He is really good in action movies, the ones that required less expression. However, they are times where we can see him with good acting, one of them is in my top-5.
Now, let’s start counting down!!
#5 A Walk in The Cloud
#4 The Day The Earth Stood Still
Although some people think that this movie is not good, but for me, this is a great movie. The moral that the movie tried to deliver really got into me. I always like movie that emphasizes its story in global warming because I’m a small scale environmentalist (I protect the earth from global warming starting from my self). You can read more about this movie here.
#3 The Gift
This is the movie where we can see the best acting performance by Keanu. The leading role is Kate Blanchet, Keanu is only the supporting role in this movie. He plays as a man who likes to beat his wife, Hilary Swank. He doesn’t look handsome at all, he wears thick beard. The story is also interesting, Kate is as amazing as always…and I’m so glad to see Keanu performs good acting as an antagonist character (his acting in The Watcher, another antagonist character, is so not memorable).
Speed is the movie that makes me fell deeply in love with Keanu and Sandra Bullock (remind me to write about this movie soon!). I have watched it and re-watched it for more than 10 times, the story never bored me. Keanu is really good in this kind of movie.
#1 The Matrix
Hehehehe …. should I write more about this movie? My number 1 sci-fi movie, my number 4 trilogy, and one of my all time favorite movies. I keep comparing any sci-fi movie with The Matrix. I adore its plot and Keanu is soooo damn hot!! Read more about why I love this movie in here.
Now, it’s your turn to tell me your top-5 Keanu Reeves movies 🙂
