No way. No way! Something a little bit different this time as Tom and Morgan look back at the career of an underrated geek hero of cinema: Mr Keanu Reeves.

We delve into the man himself, his history, his music, his not-so well received performances and in particular, these six iconic movies in Keanu’s filmography:

  • Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure / Bogus Journey
  • Point Break
  • Speed
  • The Matrix
  • Constantine
  • John Wick

Note: Tom wanted to discuss The Lake House (aka one of his top five favourite movies, honestly) at length, but Morgan wouldn’t let him.

Beer choice: Hogstar (Hogs Back Brewery)

Developments since broadcast:

  • Keanu has continued to make great movies as ever – including a third John Wick film, Toy Story 4 as Duke Caboom, and Bill and Ted 3!
  • We recorded a Bill and Ted special to celebrate Face the Music’s release in 2020, which featured an interview with co-writer Ed Solomon.
  • Keanu will star in a long-awaited fourth Matrix film, expected to be released in 2022.
  • Keanu also starred in the even more long-awaited video game Cyberpunk 2077 as Johnny Silverhand. Tom still hasn’t got it working yet.
