Most of you are probably familiar with a significant number of films within Keanu Reeves’ phenomenal repertoire. And this week, I shall make 3 horror films our focal topic of discussion. And the film that I shall begin with was directed by the cinematic genius, Francis Ford Coppola, and is simply entitled as “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”.

Keanu Reeves played the supporting actor role of “Jonathan Harker” in this film. “Jonathan Harker” is a young inexperienced attorney that has been sent to an arbitrary, little eastern European hamlet or settlement to conduct business with “Count Dracula”, in place of the initial attorney or solicitor, “R.M. Renfield” (who has been driven mad). As soon as this mysteriously dangerous “Count” discovers that “Jonathan Harker” is engaged to a young woman (by the name of “Mina Murray”) who happens to resemble 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 of obtaining a lifetime mate in “Mina”.

The next horror film that I’d like to mention is known as “The Watcher”. In this film from the year 2000, James Spader starred with Keanu Reeves starring right alongside him. In fact, Keanu Reeves should have received more acclaim and accolades for his portrayal of “David Allen Griffin” (one of the killer’s aliases) in “The Watcher”. This serial killer character was so very believable in his disturbed pathology; and my MuseKeanu  brought him amazingly to life. Whilst viewing the film, it was obvious that “David Allen Griffin” was quite a charismatic and quixotic psychopathic serial killer. He even looked every bit the maliciously callous serial killer whilst simultaneously appearing as quite a beautiful male specimen.

And the third and final horror film that I’d like to mention is entitled as, “The Devil’s Advocate”. This was quite a spectacular film. It starred the adorable and entrancing Keanu Reeves, along with exceptional veteran actor, Al Pacino (among a multi-talented cast, including Charlize Theron). Keanu’s character in the film, “Kevin Lomax”, did initially endeavor to be a loving and devoted husband, although he was a zealous and overly ambitious defense attorney. Yet, Al Pacino’s character, “John Milton” (aka the Devil), started corrupting him with numerous temptations, including lust, wealth, glory, and power; which would be rather difficult trappings for a gorgeous young married gentleman to resist. And certainly, being a Georgia native, I absolutely loved the precious southern accent which Keanu Reeves effected throughout this film’s entirety.

Overall, these were very entertaining films to watch, so certainly feel free to watch them; for those of you who are interested in doing so. Now, for any of you who have not yet been apprised, 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.

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.

{Keanu Reeves Image from: https://i.pinimg.com/736x/3d/26/94/3d269457e8ebe1928eb00fff6b4e1fc5–keanu-charles-reeves-keanu-reeves.jpg}

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.

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

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 is my Special Muse and Inspiration for my creation of “Evian Magi”, the protagonist (main character), within this E-Book. And “Evian Magi” is, in actuality, the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves.
