Matrix – Everything Is A Remix – Must Watch

Man I loved the Matrix and still do, it was a revolutionary movie when it came out and I still think so to this day. If you have any inclinations to martial arts then you will love this video, wouldn’t we all want the every type of martial arts downloaded to our cerebral cortex. This video of the Matrix fight scenes is compared with all the great Asian Martial Arts movies from Drunk Master all the way to Ghost In The Shell. What do you think about the Wachowski’s for using these techniques for their film? I think it doesn’t detract from the movie.

Review: The Day The Earth Stood Still

Keanu Reeves is Klaatu, an alien sent to earth to judge the humans and the state of things on earth. If humans are fit to live or the earth has to be reborn again. I’m not the biggest fan of Keanu Reeves but he played this alien character pretty damn well, and Jennifer Connelly is the human scientist who connects with him and trying to help him understand that humans aren’t all that bad. I have to say that I like that big alien robot and it takes an interesting twist, its a fun movie to watch, nothing too special but if you liek Sci-Fi then this is for you.

Review: Street Kings

I have been looking forward to this movie for sometime, but it has had some mixed reviews. Some people like it and some people didn’t, I wasn’t sure what to expect, the trailer looked good. It had an interesting list of actors such as Forrest Whitaker, Keanu Reeves, Hugh Laurie, and a few more. Keanu plays the role of a good person playing the role of dark cop in a dirty Los Angeles, he had to deal with a lot internally. Working with the Vice Squad he was the attack dog of the team, he would kill the bad guys before all the ropes they would have to jump, he thought he was doing it for the right reasons but his commander (Whitaker) had his own reasons to climb to the top. With all this it looked like there was a lot to the the story, as the movie picked up pace the story line was getting a bit confusing. At the end it was a very simple story line, but Keanu Reeves did an excellent job, it could have been a lot better, I expected something like Training Day. If you just want some action then this is an entertaining movie, Keanu pulls it off and thats about it.
