Keanu Reeves in “The Gift”!

Hello all, and Welcome to this Blog of Miss TaffeytheChamp. Are any of you familiar with the Keanu Reeves’ film entitled, “The Gift”? I am, in that I have seen it more than once. So, I have endeavored to make it the focal discussion topic for this week.

{The Gift Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0219699/mediaviewer/rm551132928}

The Gift” is a film that fell between 4 diverse genres: drama, fantasy, horror, and mystery. So, this was an uncanny film for Keanu Reeves to star in. And the character he portrayed, “Donnie Barksdale” was quite a vile, repellent, and evil-hearted man. In “The Gift”, “Donnie Barksdale” was a wife beating adulterer, a menacing racist, and a wicked persecutor of Cate Blanchett’s clairvoyant character “Annabelle (Annie) Wilson”.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.hotflick.net/flicks/2000_The_Gift/tn300/fhd000GFT_Keanu_Reeves_001.jpg}

Storyline: “When Jessica King goes missing, all eyes turn to Annabelle Wilson. Not as a murder suspect but as a clairvoyant. Many of the towns folk go to Annabelle for help, and Jessica’s fiancée, Wayne Collins, turns to Annabelle for possible guidance. Annabelle feels that she can’t help, but this doesn’t stop her from constantly getting visions of Jessica’s fate.” Written by FilmFanUK at imdb.com

It was difficult, if not impossible, to feel any empathy at all for the “Donnie Barksdale” character when he was framed for murdering the beloved “Jessica King” character. He was such a loathsome person, and it became evident that even the prosecuting attorney (portrayed by “Gary Cole”) did not care about his having been framed. Nonetheless, this particular attorney was having an affair with the murder victim before her untimely death, so he had no cause to be so judgmental himself.

“A glorious textbook example of a gifted film maker’s ability to transform a familiar genre and, thrillingly, to confound our expectations in the process.” Written by Susan Clark of the Detroit News

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/e9/6c/8a/e96c8ae495131675cd672aa669c0e83f.jpg}

Keanu was so convincing in his portrayal of this character that I was quite proud of him. Although, I freely admit to disliking the grotesque personality of the aforementioned “Donnie Barksdale”. It was almost as though Keanu was channeling his nefarious (yet beautiful) “Don John” character from “Much Ado About Nothing” in this particular film. One of the biggest differences was that the “Donnie Barksdale” character was quite an insidious racist. Yet, all in all, I was riveted by “The Gift”, and enjoyed it thoroughly from beginning until the very end. So, please feel free to watch it, for those of you that may be interested in doing so.

Now, for those of you who are not acquainted with me, I am the Creator of this Blog and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. Keanu Reeves is my Endearing Muse and Inspiration for my creation of “Evian Magi”, the protagonist (main character) within “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. Also, “Evian Magi” is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves.

Thank you sincerely, Keanu Reeves, for being my incredible Muse, and such an extraordinary gentleman towards this lady, Miss TaffeytheChamp. And I thank GOD, most fundamentally, for everything You have ever done for me. If any of you are interested, please feel free to purchase a copy of “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga” today at: https://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Alliance-Evians-Saga-ebook/dp/B01L0K28KS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480461906&sr=8-2&keywords=the+mystery+alliance. Thanks, in advance, for reading, and Have an exceptionally enjoyable week!

Keanu Reeves in “Life Underwater”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello, and Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s blog! Are any of you familiar with one of the early films within Keanu Reeves’ film repertoire entitled, “Life Under Water”? Well, I am familiar with it, and I am going to make it the focal topic of discussion this week.

{American Playhouse: for Life Under Water Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0176357/mediaviewer/rm168937728}

This Keanu Reeves’ film was one within The American Playhouse series during the 1980’s. Keanu portrays “Kip”, a rather aimless young man that lives under the thumb of his mother, who appears to be an irresponsible parent; yet, controlling at the same time. So, he makes a valiant attempt to start taking charge of his own life.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/bWJxkxnjAd0/hqdefault.jpg}

Storyline: “Young man, who can’t get along with the rest of the world, especially his mother, decides to try to take his life in his own hands.” Written by an anonymous writer via imdb.com

Life Under Water” has been given 6.4 out of 10 stars via imdb.com; as a matter of interest.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/4b/91/2d/4b912dc086ac07d2e50b0cbdd2867203.jpg}

It was quite surprising to witness Keanu Reeves starring alongside Sarah Jessica Parker, who portrays the character, “Amy-Beth”, I must say. Not only that, but watching the two of them in some rather cosy and intimate scenes together was interesting. The “Amy-Beth” character initially appeared to unfairly resent him and his presence, for no apparent reason; as though he was a burden on both her and her girlfriend, “Amy-Joy” (who invited him to stay with them while they each took care of the house and children of a wealthy family during the summer months).

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://s2.dmcdn.net/OFisY/280×157-cpk.jpg}

Now, toward the end of this film, the character, “Amy-Joy”, portrayed by actress Haviland Morris, appeared to have pulled a fast-one (as is often said) on them both. It was obvious in the beginning of this film that “Amy-Joy” was very attracted to, and interested in “Kip” herself; which is why she, herself, extended the invitation to him. So, eventually she seems to get jealous of the growing relationship between “Kip” and “Amy-Beth”, and decides to come in between them.

It is unclear whether “Amy-Joy” and “Kip” actually engage in sexual intercourse, but it does appear that they skinny-dipped together. And immediately afterward, she sends him into the living room (where she knows “Amy-Beth” is), in order for “Amy-Beth” to see him in a state of undress; beguilingly nude, of course. And the “Amy-Beth” character looks so crushed when he enters the room, that you must feel sorry for her.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/9f/42/77/9f42779ed1b38b92ca31058f4b0b3c72.jpg}

Yet, let’s get real for a few moments here. This character “Kip” is a very young man (perhaps less than 20 years old), is confused about where he is going in life, uncertain how to get there, and feels that he is severely lacking in his mother’s parental support. Now, these aspects are quite a lot on a young man’s plate. So, even though he initially professed some feelings toward the “Amy-Beth” character, these feelings were sexual in nature; more than anything else.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s22.postimg.org/bbq9euwtd/IMG_0500.jpg}

Young adolescent women or those in their early 20’s seem to forget that very young males are not ready for deep or serious commitments until they are much older (for the majority of the time). I do empathize with her disillusionment, but sometimes a young lady just needs to get real. In the end, he ended up right back with his mother to work on sorting himself out. But, to give the “Kip” character credit, he did appear to feel guilty about having hurt her feelings. And overall, I must admit that this was a very entertaining film to watch. Therefore, please feel free to watch it, if any of you are interested in doing so.

For any of you who are not acquainted with me, I am Miss TaffeytheChamp. I am Creator of this Blog and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. Keanu Reeves is my Special Muse and Inspiration for my creation of “Evian Magi”, the protagonist (main character), within this E-Book. And “Evian Magi” is actually the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves.

Thank you so very much, Keanu Reeves, for being my endearing Muse, an extraordinarily genteel gentleman, and a veritable “knight in shining armor” toward this Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy Author. And I thank GOD, most substantially, for every blessing which You bestow upon me. And if any of you are interested in purchasing a copy, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga” is located at: https://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Alliance-Evians-Saga-ebook/dp/B01L0K28KS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480461906&sr=8-2&keywords=the+mystery+alliance. Thank you, in advance, for reading. And have a phenomenal week!

Keanu Reeves in “Street Kings”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello, and Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog! Are any of you familiar with any of the films within Keanu Reeves’ film repertoire? Well, I am, and one in particular I’d like to mention is entitled, “Street Kings”. Now, whether any of you have seen it, or have not seen it, I would like to make it the focal topic of discussion for this week.

{Keanu Reeves in Street Kings Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0421073/mediaviewer/rm1355191808}

In “Street Kings”, Keanu Reeves portrays the LAPD Detective “Tom Ludlow”, who is a somewhat implacable and eccentric undercover policeman. He is best friends with his superior, a “Captain Jack Wander”, portrayed by Forrest Whitaker. This relationship is quite advantageous for “Tom Ludlow”; as “Captain Jack Wander” always covers for him. Thus, this advantage incites much jealousy among his fellow comrades-in-blue who often help cover for him, also.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.cliponbadges.com/assets/images/picstreet3.jpg}

Tom Ludlow” becomes a target of an Internal Affairs expert by the name of “Captain James Biggs” (portrayed by Hugh Laurie) when he is accused of using excessive force after rescuing a child sex slave from a violent and unconscionable Korean gang. It is important to note that the “James Biggs” character is disgruntled over “Captain Jack Wander’s” promotion to Chief of Detectives, instead of himself. And the unethical ex-patrol partner of “Tom Ludlow” by the name of “Terence Washington” sides with Internal Affairs (which is seen as betrayal by his comrades-in-blue). Amazingly, “Terence Washington” is killed in a convenience store robbery whilst Keanu’s character, “Tom Ludlow” is in attendance, as well.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/eojyTeUKaOk/hqdefault.jpg}

Storyline: “LAPD detective Tom Ludlow is a ruthlessly efficient, unorthodox undercover cop. Captain Jack Wander always covers for Tom, as do even his somewhat jealous colleagues. After technically excessive violence against a vicious Korean gang during the liberation of a kidnapped kid sex slave, Tom becomes the target of IA’s hotshot, captain James Biggs, who feels passed over after Wander’s promotion to chief. Tom’s corrupt, disloyal ex-patrol partner Terrence Washington sides with IA but is killed during a shop robbery in Tom’s presence.” Written by KGF Vissers via imdb.com

Please feel free to read the Rotten Tomatoes Movie Review below the weblink: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/street_kings/

“A lot of reviewers seem to have disliked Street Kings because of its negative view of the LA police, and perhaps the country at large. That is not a problem for me.” Written by Tony Macklin of the Fayetteville Free Weekly {who praised it with a Rotten Tomato (i.e. High Marks)}

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.hotflick.net/flicks/2008_Street_Kings/008STK_Keanu_Reeves_031.jpg}

I found “Street Kings” to be quite an exciting and action-packed police drama with both suspenseful and surprising highlights throughout. It was interesting watching Keanu Reeves’ character, “Tom Ludlow”, struggle against having his eyes opened concerning all of the corruption surrounding him throughout the entirety of the LA county police departments. “Tom Ludlow” already felt very disturbed by past tragic events in his life that he appeared to feel as though everyone he loved and everything he touched would become cursed. But, I will say that nothing in this film prepares one for the gripping and violent climax which occurs when “Tom Ludlow” does finally experience enlightenment, and decides to act upon such devastating revelations.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://ic.c4assets.com/brands/street-kings/a2ade7a1-1808-4c11-a843-e75b5897dcb9.jpg?interpolation=progressive-bicubic&output-quality=90}

Now, I must admit to enjoying viewing Mr. Keanu Reeves’ impressive physique in a police uniform. Keanu does tend to look very attractive in a variety of uniforms; from football and American soldier to that of an heroic policeman. And incidentally, the official anniversary date of the “Street Kings” release has only just passed a few days ago. So, this would be a great time for anyone to re-familiarize themselves with such an intriguing film in commemoration of the diligent work that went into its production. And it is just as good a time as any for those who have not seen it yet, to do so. Therefore, please feel free to watch this intriguing film (again, or for the first time).

Keanu Reeves in “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello, and welcome to this Blog of Miss TaffeytheChamp! Are any of you familiar with most of the films within Keanu Reeves’ film repertoire? I am, and I would like to discuss the film entitled, “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”, this week.

{Bram Stoker’s Dracula Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103874/mediaviewer/rm178840064}

Keanu Reeves’ played a relatively minor supporting role as “Jonathan Harker” in this film. “Jonathan Harker is a young, rather inexperienced attorney that has been sent to an arbitrary, little eastern European hamlet or settlement to conduct business with a “Count Dracula”, in place of the previous attorney, “R.M. Renfield”, who has been driven mad. Once this mysterious and dangerous “Count” discovers that “Jonathan Harker” is engaged to a young woman (by the name of “Mina Murray”) who resembles his long deceased true love, he sets “Harker” up with his undead mistresses to prevent him from returning to her. This is done so that “Count Dracula” can seek her out to abscond with her; most likely with the intent to obtain a lifetime mate in “Mina”.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.obnovi.com/uploads/posts/2009-09/1253625687_h3c13om7ds.jpg}

Storyline: “This version of Dracula is closely based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel of the same name. A young lawyer (Jonathan Harker) is assigned to a gloomy village in the mists of eastern Europe. He is captured and imprisoned by the undead vampire, Dracula, who travels to London, inspired by a photograph of Harker’s betrothed, Mina Murray. In Britain, Dracula begins a reign of seduction and terror, draining the life from Mina’s closest friend, Lucy Westenra. Lucy’s friends gather together to try to drive Dracula away.” Written by Goth <brooks@odie.ee.wits.ac.za>

I found “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” to be quite an entertaining film with a cast of talented actors. Unfortunately, Keanu Reeves took much flack from critics concerning his portrayal of the character “Jonathan Harker”. This was mostly due to the way he spoke with a British accent. I, myself, did not find the accent atrocious. Certainly, I think “much ado about nothing” (to quote Shakespeare, and one of the films under Keanu’s belt) was emitted about such an inconsequential matter. Personally, I feel that I would not be able to speak fluently in every single diverse linguistic accent in existence. And I do believe that Keanu Reeves did at least attempt to have a go at speaking with a British accent through his own best effort or initiative.

Please feel free to read the Rotten Tomatoes Movie Review below the weblink:{https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/bram_stokers_dracula/}

“Coppola’s stunning adaptation of the classic vampire novel is a movie lover’s dream, as the director elected to rely on old-school cinematic techniques (albeit executed with modern-day aplomb) to punch across his bold and bloody interpretation.” Written by Matt Brunson of Creative Loafing via http://www.rottentomatoes.com

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/0e/ee/80/0eee80aebb574b5dc2e66f8af0185d7f.jpg}

I must say that I truly enjoyed watching this film during the summer of 1993. This was one of the films I enjoyed immensely that summer. One of the other films I enjoyed viewing at that time was “A Few Good Men”. I tend to remember that summer very well. Both films were a few of the 1993 summer blockbusters. Now, these films came before the next Keanu Reeves’ film and mega blockbuster, “Speed”. And with a Movie Review like the one above, it is obvious that the great maestro, Francis Ford Coppola, did not make an error in casting Keanu Reeves, my Muse.  

Thus, please feel free to watch this intriguing film, for any of you who have not had the pleasure of doing so. Now, I am Miss TaffeytheChamp. I am Creator of this Blog and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”.

Keanu Reeves in “Something’s Gotta Give”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello there! Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog. Are any of you familiar with most of the films within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire? I happen to be, and I would like to focus on one in particular, entitled, “Something’s Gotta Give”.

{Keanu Reeves in Something’s Gotta Give Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/95/a8/86/95a88699ff66e1204b543efe6ac8999d.jpg}

This is a very entertaining film; as it has an all-star cast, including the amazing Jack Nicholson. Keanu Reeves portrays the character, “Julian Mercer”, in a supporting role. This “Julian Mercer” character becomes the physician (most likely, a heart specialist) of Jack Nicholson’s character, “Harry Sanborn”.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/6c/ff/34/6cff344a5cdb33fa09e3e6d31db944ed.jpg}

Storyline: “Harry Sanborn is an aged music industry exec with a fondness for younger women like Marin, his latest trophy girlfriend. Things get a little awkward when Harry suffers a heart attack at the home of Marin’s mother Erica. Left in the care of Erica and his doctor, a love triangle starts to take shape.” Written by Keanuette at imdb.com

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.slate.com/content/dam/slate/blogs/browbeat/2014/10/27/keanu_reeves_facial_expressions_the_actor_s_many_faces_ranked/a_560x37522.jpg.CROP.promovar-mediumlarge.jpg}

In “Something’s Gotta Give”, the “Harry Sanborn” character has only dated younger women for the majority of his life until he has reached his senior citizen years. He dates “Marin”, the daughter of Diane Keaton’s character, “Erica Jane Barry”. He experiences a heart attack while having some playfully intimate fun (not intercourse) with “Marin”, Amanda Peet’s character. Keanu’s character, “Julian Mercer”, becomes his physician after he is rushed to the hospital. And when it becomes clear that “Harry” requires convalescence outside the hospital, the “Erica” character allows him to stay at her house for a limited time. To make a long story short, “Erica” ends up falling in love with “Harry”, although she is pursued romantically by the “Julian Mercer”character.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.keanuvision.com/mt/pix03/peachy1208.jpg}

This was quite an enjoyable romantic comedy to watch, overall. Now, I must say that I loved the symbolism of Keanu’s character purchasing fresh peaches. I happen to have been born a Georgia Peach southern belle lady. So, I loved witnessing my Muse, Keanu Reeves, purchasing those peaches in this film. Why Keanu, did you realize in hindsight that you would encounter your Georgia Peach Musee someday…Hmm? Haha! 

Anyway, what I did find most humorous was the vast multitude of crying jags or episodes that Diane Keaton’s character, “Erica”, experienced after suffering a heartbreaking rejection by “Harry”, Jack Nicholson’s character. The rather difficult to believe aspect regarding “Something’s Gotta Give” was watching Keanu’s younger character, “Julian Mercer”, being very aggressive and coercive in getting someone (anyone) to date him; particularly, a much older woman. Why, it is more likely that she would be pursuing him aggressively. Thus, that was definitely good acting in this film on the part of my MuseKeanu Reeves, in my opinion.

“A comedy of manners (and mannerisms) with two of the most mannered movie stars of our time, Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson, acting all over the place until you surrender with the ecstasy of pure pleasure.” Written by Rex Reed of The New York Observer

Keanu Reeves in “The Night Before”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello again, and Welcome to this Blog of Miss TaffeytheChamp! Have any of you ever seen some of the early films within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire? I have, and there is one in particular that I’d like to focus upon this week. It is simply entitled, “The Night Before”.

{Keanu Reeves in “The Night Before” Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095730/mediaviewer/rm373298944}

I found this film to be a cute and cuddly type of comedy. Keanu Reeves’ character, “Winston Connelly”, experiences an entire night of unusual and comical mishaps in “The Night Before”. I found him sweet and affecting as the high school geek who ended up dating a Miss Popular type when she lost a bet to one of her popular best friends. The year is 1988, so Keanu Reeves is quite young here, and admirably fresh-faced.

{Keanu Reeves Image: cineplex.media.baselineresearch.com/images/433779/433779_full.jpg}

Storyline: “Winston Connelly wakes up in the middle of the night in an alley with no idea of how he got there. Nor does he know where in Los Angeles he is or why he is wearing a beat-up tuxedo. Through a series of flashbacks, he remembers that he was sidetracked on his way to the prom the night before. In the meantime, he has to figure out what happened to his wallet, his car keys, his date, and why a pimp named “Tito” wants him dead. Written by Christine Sai-Halasz <sai@mit.edu> at imdb.com

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://image.tmdb.org/t/p/w300/kTjZW2Er9kR7GnbeKl9QfaiT6rU.jpg}

There were some delightful facets of this film that young ladies and young gentlemen should enjoy. Number 1: The cute geek dancing, not terribly, to music by George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic with Miss Popular (although intoxicated and eventually stumbling over spilled liquor toward the end of the dance). Number 2: The cute geek rescuing Miss Popular from a supposedly menacing pimp and his street thug cronies. Number 3: And finally, the cute geek winning Miss Popular’s adulation and affection at the end of the film.

You don’t have to take my word for this being an enjoyable film. So, please feel free to read the Movie Review below:

“The film kept me interested through the end, and I enjoyed the diversion from the typical 80s teen comedy.” Written by Kevin Carr of 7M Pictures [Located at: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/night_before/]

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://forgottenfilmcast.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/the-night-before-1.png?w=700}

Overall, this was a fun film from the 1980’s to watch. I am certain that many adolescent high school students have enjoyed it, and any who may view it (in future) may be entertained by it, as well. I, for one, simply adored watching those cute antics and babyface looks of Keanu Reeves in this film (not to mention, his glorious profile). Keanu Reeves always had a fantastic profile and attractive countenance, in my opinion, (as I am fond of letting him know); which is why I selected some of his best images from this film, “The Night Before”, to include within this particular Blog post. 

For those of you who are not aware, I am Miss Taffey Tawanna Champion. I am the Creator of this Blog, and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. My main character (protagonist) is “Evian Magi”, and he represents the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves (since Keanu Reeves is my Special Muse and Inspiration for creating “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”). You may purchase a copy of this E-Book via Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Alliance-Evians-Saga-ebook/dp/B01L0K28KS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1486693303&sr=8-2&keywords=the+mystery+alliance.

Thank you, emphatically, Keanu Reeves for being such a wonderfully genteel gentleman, and for being so very supportive and kind toward this little southern belle lady. Words cannot express what your support means to me. I could not have chosen a better Muse (or did you choose me? Haha!) And certainly, I thank GOD, so very abundantly, for all of Your extraordinary blessings which You bestow upon me. Have a Great week everyone, and Thanks for reading, in advance!

Keanu Reeves in “Sweet November”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello, and Welcome to this Blog of Miss TaffeytheChamp! I hope most of you are familiar with the Keanu Reeves’ film entitled, “Sweet November”. I freely admit that I am, so I shall make it the focal topic of discussion for this week.

{Keanu Reeves in Sweet November Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0230838/mediaviewer/rm1441636096}

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/26300000/Sweet-November-sweet-november-26368020-600-400.jpg}

In ”Sweet November”, Keanu Reeves teams up with Charlize Theron again; as the first time was in the incredible film, “The Devil’s Advocate”. The bittersweet, yet poignant romance is what affects ones heart in this tragic love story. Keanu portrays “Nelson Moss”, a brilliant advertising specialist who is an extremely compulsive workaholic with intimacy issues. He meets “Sara Deever” (Charlize Theron’s character) through an unusual encounter at the DMV. And unfortunately, “Nelson causes “Sara to be kicked out of the driving test; as the assessor assumed she was cheating.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/d3/13/16/d31316e3c538719b764d27fbd91ce545.jpg}

To make a long story short, after intriguing and humorous circumstances of emotional blackmail which “Sara inflicts upon “Nelson (in retaliation for his causing her to lose her driving privileges), she proposes that he live with her for a month. After quite a few emotional starts and stops, he eventually agrees to this outlandish proposition. What begins as a brief, no-strings attached affair turns into the most hopeless and heartbreaking love affair that either of them will ever experience; particularly, “Nelson.  

Plot Summary: “Nelson is a man devoted to his advertising career in San Francisco. One day, while taking a driving test at the DMV, he meets Sara. She is very different from the other women in his life. Nelson causes her to miss out on taking the test and later that day she tracks him down. One thing leads to another and Nelson ends up living with her through a November that will change his life forever.” Written by V. Piper at imdb.com

Please feel free to check out the Movie Review below the weblink: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1104841-sweet_november/reviews/

“A romantic comedy about the emotional makeover of a self-absorbed workaholic man.” Written by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat of Spirituality and Practice located at: http://www.spiritualityandpractice.com/films/reviews/view/3122

Sweet November” was an entertaining film. Nevertheless, I felt that the “Nelson Moss” character was horribly cheated; in that the “Sara Deever” character should have stopped being so intense and demanding about their affair, and let him go before he fell head over heels in love. I found her extremely selfish, and she knew that she was dying of a catastrophic illness; but, wouldn’t even reveal this earth-shattering information to “Nelson”. He had to discover it all by accident, or by a chance incident; the poor fellow. And if this were a real-life circumstance, I can only say, “Heaven help any woman he would become intimate with in future”.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/8d/5f/c3/8d5fc32cb5c0141192d4a34cf641e148.jpg}

Now personally, what I do like most is that Keanu Reeves portrays Mr. “Sweet November” in this film. I happen to be born in November, so I give kudos to Keanu, my Muse, for making a film aligning with my very own birthday month. Although it is a remake of the beloved and classic film of the same title, I think Keanu Reeves was both thoughtful and insightful for using this film to touch many a lady’s heart. Yet again, you are on my wavelength, Keanu Reeves! What else could I expect from my Muse, I wonder? 

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://a405.idata.over-blog.com/4/91/33/72/archives/0/copie_de_sweet1.jpg}

Also, the tears Keanu shed at the end of this film were quite affecting. And I don’t know about any of you, but this display of emotion caused me to want to wipe those tears away. Now, for any of you who are not aware, I am the Creator of this Blog and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. Keanu Reeves is my Special Muse and Inspiration for my creation of “Evian Magi”, the protagonist (main character) within “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. And “Evian Magi” is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves. This Labor of Love, my E-Book series, is being created in dedication and honor of one of my most highly favored celebrities (who happens to be an incredible human being), Keanu Reeves.

Keanu Reeves in “Flying”!

Hello there! Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog. Most of you may be familiar with many of the films in Keanu Reeves’ repertoire. I definitely am, so this week I shall make the film, “Flying” (aka “Teenage Dream”), the topic of discussion.

{Keanu Reeves in Teenage Dream (Flying) Image: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51DC3SPKC0L.jpg}

Now, first of all, this is an early and unfamiliar 1980’s film which Keanu Reeves has under his belt. It is listed on imdb.com as “Flying”, though. It has had 4 titles, “Believe to Dream”, “Dream to Believe, “Teenage Dream”, and finally, “Flying”. And this film is very difficult to find. However, I did make certain to inform Keanu about the issues surrounding this particular film in case any of his fans are interested in watching it. As it is, I have attempted to clear up the confusion as much as I possibly can within this Blog post.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/47/de/41/47de41f8be84fdb3aeaa845175899a49.jpg}

It can be clearly seen from most of the photographs used within this Blog post that Keanu Reeves was very young when this film was made. In “Teenage Dream”, Keanu portrays the character, “Tommy Wernicke” alongside Olivia D’abo’s starring character, “Robin Crew”. Initially, “Tommy” is completely into “Robin”, but she doesn’t know he exists; as she is interested in a popular male gymnast who already has a girlfriend (a fellow female gymnast who is actually “Robin’s” greatest rival on their high school gymnastics team). 

Storyline: “Robin and her father have a car accident. Her father dies. Robin is badly injured and cannot compete in gymnastics tournaments anymore. Shattered dreams. She lives with her mother and bad step-father. Robin is accepted to the school athletics team but is not accepted by some other girls, so she works out at a friends house. Eventually Robin and her team compete in the national scholastic meet.”Written by Ivo Kroone <ab2693@triton.heao.hsa.nl> at imdb.com

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/45/68/b2/4568b23dbc334575b79949a5bb73c95b.jpg}

Eventually, after giving “Robin” a taste of her own medicine by ignoring her for a lengthy duration, “Tommy” confronts her, states his case, and even angrily dismisses her. It takes some effort on her part for “Robin” to convince him of her true interest in only him. Now, I can only imagine what it would be like to experience being dismissed by someone like Keanu Reeves. He is such a kindhearted and extremely attractive gentleman that such an occurrence would be difficult to take. But, at least this was just one of his adorable characters in action. In the end, the two characters became involved in a committed and intimate relationship. And Keanu’sTommy” was a devoted, caring, and very romantic beau. He even prepared breakfast-in-bed for his special lady.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.oocities.org/keanugallery/keanu/keanu485.jpg}

Unfortunately, I was unable to locate any Reviews regarding this film entitled, “Flying”. Nonetheless, on www.Rottentomatoes.com, the audience score posted there is at 63%, with an average rating of 3.4 Stars out of 5 Star ratings (which is good). But the film is noted as “Dream to Believe” via that website. There are somewhat exciting occurrences in this young gymnast’s life at the end of this film. And this was great to see, since the “Robin Crew” character had many difficulties to overcome, including a long-term injury from a car accident that appeared not to be healing much at all.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/f0/2e/e6/f02ee642ff713f1d4a0ffef81394475f.jpg}

I must admit that for a young teeny-bopper type of film that “Flying” was quite enjoyable to watch. Oftentimes, for 1980’s films like this, Keanu Reeves’ infinite Charm and innate Cuteness was advantageous and necessary to incite interest within audiences to watch them; young ladies’ interest, in particular. Now, for any of you who are unaware, I am Miss TaffeytheChamp. I am Creator of this Blog and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. Keanu Reeves is my Special Muse and Inspiration for my creation of “Evian Magi”, the protagonist (main character), within “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. And my beloved character, “Evian Magi” is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves.

Thank you very much, Keanu Reeves, for being such an endearing and kind gentleman toward this southern belle Author. And I thank GOD, most integrally, for all of the blessings with which You have bestowed upon me. If any of you are interested in purchasing a copy, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga” is located at: https://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Alliance-Evians-Saga-ebook/dp/B01L0K28KS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480461906&sr=8-2&keywords=the+mystery+alliance.

Keanu Reeves in “The Matrix Revolutions”!

Hello, and Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog. I am certain that many of you are familiar with the Keanu Reeves’ film entitled, “The Matrix Revolutions”; which was supposedly the final part within “The Matrix” trilogy. I happen to be quite familiar with it, and I shall make it the focal topic of our discussion this week.

{Keanu Reeves in The Matrix Revolutions Image: http://cdn23.us1.fansshare.com/photos/thematrix/matrix-revolutions-bftuvhp-ju-neo-268181150.jpg}

This third part within “The Matrix” trilogy contained some rather surprising and almost unbearable aspects which were difficult for me to witness. I loved this film franchise so much, and was so very proud of my Muse, Keanu Reeves, for landing such a breakthrough role as “Neo” (aka “The One”). But, “The Matrix” and “The Matrix Reloaded” are my absolute favorites within the Wachowski’s successful film enterprise. And of course, Keanu always looked dashingly attractive in his portrayal of this admirable hero-archetype character.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://static1.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11129/111294954/5345829-3238348245-matri.jpg}

Storyline: “Neo discovers that somehow he is able to use his powers in the real world too and that his mind can be freed from his body, as a result of which he finds himself trapped on a train station between the Matrix and the Real World. Meanwhile, Zion is preparing for the oncoming war with the machines with very little chances of survival. Neo’s associates set out to free him from The Merovingian since it’s believed that he is the One who will end the war between humans and the machines. What they do not know is that there is a threat from a third party, someone who has plans to destroy both the worlds.” Written by Soumitra at imdb.com

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/f0/37/d0/f037d0f5ef285d490fd292be8bc113ad.jpg}

Within “The Matrix Revolutions”, there were quite a few obstacles and gruesome battles; to say the least. And the irritating (bad guy we love to hate), “Agent Smith”, became one of the worst enemies which “Neo” could have ever made since attempting to destroy him at the end of “The Matrix”. From “Agent Smith’s” perspective, “Neo” set him free. Nonetheless, this perspective was warped, in that he was consumed with hating “Neo”, and intent upon destroying him.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/cd/2e/b1/cd2eb1038a583089d2dba1af70e51e39.jpg}

Please feel free to check out the Movie Review below the weblink:{https://www.rottentomatoes.com/}

“No less than the rankest demagogue, The Matrix Revolutions insists on the primacy of faith over knowledge. Once it locks and loads, however, the triumphant visuals short-circuit anything resembling abstract thought.” Written by J. Hoberman of the Village Voice

The ending of “The Matrix Revolutions” left me in a bit of mourning malaise, I freely admit. Why did they kill off my “Neo”? And how dared they do that? These are questions which I could not help, but ask. I felt that it was such a dramatic and tragic ending to “The One’s” journey that I even told Keanu that I could not understand the Wachowski’s decision to kill off such a beloved and heroic character. Now, being a writer myself, I must respect their creative choices, but I could not have written the ending that way.

Another highly disappointing facet is that there is going to be a “Matrix” reboot, but not starring Keanu Reeves. I don’t know about the original fans of “The Matrix“, but I cannot even imagine anyone replacing Keanu in the role of “Neo” (aka “The One“). I don’t care how attractive or how hot a gentleman thinks or imagines himself to be, no one can replace Keanu Reeves in this role, in my astute opinion. I wish that I could have delivered better news to his loyal fans, but I cannot; unfortunately.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://cdn23.us1.fansshare.com/photos/keanureeves/keanu-reeves-neo-matrix-wallpaper-normal-matrix-1338495367.jpg}

Yet, no matter how it ends, “The Matrix Revolutions” was an engaging and compelling film to watch. So, for any of you who may not have yet, please feel free to watch it. Now, I am Miss TaffeytheChamp, Creator of this Blog and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. Keanu Reeves is my Special Muse and Inspiration for my creation of “Evian Magi”, the protagonist (main character) within “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. And my beloved character, “Evian Magi” is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of the endearing Keanu Reeves.

Thank you very much, Keanu Reeves, for being so genteel and kindhearted toward this southern belle Author. And I thank GOD, most significantly, for all of the blessings with which You have bestowed upon me. If any of you are interested in purchasing a copy, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga” is located at: https://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Alliance-Evians-Saga-ebook/dp/B01L0K28KS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480461906&sr=8-2&keywords=the+mystery+alliance.

Keanu Reeves in “The Matrix Reloaded”!

Hello there! Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog. I am sure that many of you are familiar with the Keanu Reeves’ film entitled, “The Matrix Reloaded”. I certainly am, and so I shall make it the topic of discussion for this week.

{Keanu Reeves in The Matrix Reloaded Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0234215/mediaviewer/rm1128077568}

This second part within “The Matrix” trilogy was quite exciting and contained unexpected elements within it; to say the least. It was fascinating watching “Neo” in his continuing journey as “The One”. An intriguing aspect was witnessing the love grow and deepen more between “Neo” and “Trinity”. Now, it was obvious in the original film that “Neo” and “Trinity” felt an undeniable, yet potent attraction; though they both tried to disguise it. But, in this film, they clearly expressed their mutual feelings and even displayed it in a blissful lovemaking scene. That is, until “Neo” had a vivid nightmare about “Trinity’s” fate soon afterward.

Storyline: “Six months after the events depicted in The Matrix, Neo has proved to be a good omen for the free humans, as more and more humans are being freed from the matrix and brought to Zion, the one and only stronghold of the Resistance. Neo himself has discovered his superpowers including super speed, ability to see the codes of the things inside the matrix, and a certain degree of precognition. But a nasty piece of news hits the human resistance: 250,000 machine sentinels are digging to Zion and would reach them in 72 hours. As Zion prepares for the ultimate war, Neo, Morpheus and Trinity are advised by the Oracle to find the Keymaker who would help them reach the Source. Meanwhile Neo’s recurrent dreams depicting Trinity’s death have got him worried and as if it was not enough, Agent Smith has somehow escaped deletion, has become more powerful than before and has chosen Neo as his next target.” Written by Soumitra at imdb.com

In “The Matrix Reloaded”, Keanu Reeves as “Neo” (aka “The One”), was gorgeous (particularly, in his Asian-style black suit) and extremely impressive whilst demonstrating his superhuman skills inside the surreal, computer-induced “Matrix” world. As I have told Keanu, I always considered and designated “Neo” as “The Matrix Superman”. If you think about it, it makes sense. His combat skills were superb, his neuro-kinetic moves were performed at hyper-speed, he would stop bullets with the halting-motion of only one hand, he seemed to fly at the speed-of-light, and he even performed an outstanding surgical procedure upon “Trinity” inside “The Matrix” like a Super Surgeon. Thus, in my opinion, John Gaeta’s film magic worked even more wonders in this phenomenal sequel within “The Matrix” trilogy.

On the whole, “The Matrix Reloaded” was one splendidly orchestrated action/sci-fi film. It was definitely the most awe-inspiring film that I saw in the year of 2003. So, if it is at all possible that any of you have not seen it yet, please feel free to do so. And for those of you who have not been acquainted with me, I am the Creator of this Blog and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. Keanu Reeves is my Special Muse and Inspiration for my creation of “Evian Magi”, the protagonist (main character) within “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. In addition, “Evian Magi” is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves.

Thank you abundantly, Keanu Reeves, for being such a sweethearted gentleman toward this southern belle, Miss TaffeytheChamp.
