I am wondering, are any of you familiar with most of the films within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire? Well, I certainly am, and I am quite familiar with the film entitled, “Dangerous Liaisons”. And whether or not any of you have seen it, I am making it the topic of discussion for this week.

Dangerous Liaisons” is quite suspenseful, with romance, sexual intrigue, and scandal intermixed within. To begin, the “Marquise de Merteuil” (Glenn Close) decides to concoct a mischievous and coldblooded seduction game with former lover, the “Vicomte de Valmont” (John Malkovich), during the 18th century in France. Some of the individuals conspired against are innocent; whilst some are not. The “Marquise de Merteuil” issues a daring challenge for the “Vicomte de Valmont”; which is to seduce the young inexperienced “Cecile de Volanges” (Uma Thurman) who is presently espoused to an older gentleman (as the “Marquise de Merteuil” is aware that the Vicomte believes success impinges upon sexual conquests).

Storyline: “In 18th century France, the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont play a dangerous game of seduction. Valmont is someone who measures success by the number of his conquests and Merteuil challenges him to seduce the soon to be married Cecile de Volanges and provide proof in writing of his success. His reward for doing so will be to spend the night with Merteuil. He has little difficulty seducing Cecile but what he really wants is to seduce Madame de Tourvel. When Merteuil learns that he has actually fallen in love with her, she refuses to let him claim his reward for seducing Cecile. Death soon follows.” Written by garykmcd via imdb.com

The “Vicomte de Valmont” is secretly more interested in seducing the lovely “Madame de Tourvel” (Michelle Pfeiffer), who is temporarily residing with his devoted aunt. However, he accepts the challenge when the “Marquise de Merteuil” agrees to spend one intimate evening with him, if he manages to successfully seduce “Cecile de Volanges”. This is because, at the time, he finds the “Marquise’s” seductive and wily charms rather difficult to resist.

To make a long story short, my Muse, Keanu Reeves, portrays the dreamy, chivalrous, and lovable (yet, quite innocently ignorant), “Chevalier Danceny”, in this film. He is a penniless composer of 18th century music. The “Chevalier Danceny” falls in love with “Cecile de Volanges”, who has been raised via convent education in a nunnery of the Catholic Church.

Please feel free to read the intriguing Rotten Tomatoes Movie Review below the web link: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1005199_dangerous_liaisons

“Director Stephen Frears accelerates entertainingly through Christopher Hampton’s wig-and-powder sado-comedy about sexual mind games in 18th-century France.” Written by Desson Thomson of The Washington Post; a Top Critic

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://themysteryallianceevianssaga.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/a97fe-012bdangerous2bliaisons.png}

This film has quite a few comic points, I must say. The “Marquise de Merteuil” convinces “Cecile de Volanges” to engage in intimate relations with the “Chevalier Danceny” and her future husband after the “Vicomte de Valmont” has molded her into an accomplished lover; which is considered a scandalized title for a female during this era in history. Whilst, incidentally, the “Vicomte” has already audaciously seduced this young innocent in a devious and indecent fashion. In the meantime, while giving this advice, the “Marquise” has seduced Keanu’s, “Chevalier Danceny” character, and the “Vicomte de Valmont” has fulfilled his own nefarious purpose; seducing the lovely “Madame de Tourvel”.

There is so much sexual intrigue and a multitude of plotting going on throughout “Dangerous Liaisons” that there is virtually no opportunity to become bored at all. Keanu Reeves looks so adorable, from beginning to end, with his fresh-faced cuteness (even whilst being dressed head-to-toe in clothing heralding from the 18th century era in France). I simply adored how endearing my Muse, Keanu, appeared with tears filling his eyes when viewing a captivating onstage performance at the Opera. And who wouldn’t have wanted to wipe those tears away?

What would your own ideal future look like? I want the best for my friends and family, good work, a healthy relationship and some fun. My idea of fun? Spending time with friends, a little traveling,...{Keanu Reeves Image: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/510666045227873085}

And that is not all which happened; as some tragic events occurred, as well. Overall “Dangerous Liaisons” is quite a captivating film to see, even with all of its unscrupulous plots, unexpected twists, and immoral behavior of its characters. I was thoroughly entertained by it, although this is not my favorite kind of film. And it was actually nominated for 7 Oscars at the Academy Awards that year due to such riveting acting, attractive costumes, and exceptional cinematography. But, it won for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Costume Design, and Best Art Direction.

Incidentally, for any of you who have not been informed, I am the Creator of this Blog and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy E-Book entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. And 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”. For those of you who have not been apprised, “Evian Magi” is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves.

Thank you very much, Keanu Reeves; for you are such a wonderful Muse, and as sweet as can be toward me, you genteel gentleman. And I thank GOD, most predominantly, for all of Your blessed support. Now, if your interest has been piqued, please feel free to purchase a copy of “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga” 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 for your rapt interest in Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blogs, and do enjoy an Exciting week!

Keanu Reeves in “The Day The Earth Stood Still”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHi there, everyone!

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/c1/fa/3a/c1fa3ae604e5ef1fef489cee24151d25.jpg}

Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog. Are any of you familiar with the Keanu Reeves’ film entitled, “The Day the Earth Stood Still”? Well, I am, so it shall be the focal topic of discussion this week.

{Keanu Reeves in “The Day the Earth Stood Still” Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0970416/mediaviewer/rm1156025088}

Now, for anyone familiar with this film’s title, they will realize that this is a remake of the 1951 sci-fi film of the same name; and which is now an established classic. Keanu Reeves portrays the character, “Klaatu”, who is an alien lifeform with human-like appearance and has journeyed to earth with his gigantic robot comrade. “Klaatu” states that his purpose for coming is to “save the Earth”. Little is known about what he means, until it is almost too late.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2008/12/11/article-0-02C74C85000005DC-640_468x286.jpg}

Storyline: “Dr. Helen Benson is summoned to a military facility with several other scientists when an alien spacecraft of sorts arrives in New York City. Aboard is a human-like alien and a giant robot of immense size and power. The alien identifies himself as Klaatu and says he has come to save the Earth. The US military and political authorities see him as a threat however and decide to use so-called intensive interrogation techniques on him but Dr. Benson decides to facilitate his escape. When she learns exactly what he means when he says he is there to save the Earth, she tries to convince him to change his intentions.” Written by garykmcd on imdb.com

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://s.hswstatic.com/gif/the-day-the-earth-stood-still-250×150.jpg}

The Day The Earth Stood Still” was comprised of an All-Star cast. And such celebrated persons included Jennifer Connelly, Kathy Bates, John Hamm, and Jaden Smith, etc. What is rather notable is that this film encompassed quite an eclectic collection of actors which seems to have made it work. In addition, Keanu Reeves’ portrayal of “Klaatu” was effortless and credible; as he clearly demonstrated the character’s obvious adamant and single-minded intent to “save the Earth” from the human race.

Please feel free to check out the Movie Review below: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/day_the_earth_stood_still/reviews/

“A highly entertaining and gripping sci-fi thriller with brains.” Written by Avi Offer of the NYC Movie Guru located at: http://www.nycmovieguru.com/dec12th.html#daytheearthstoodstill

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://a.espncdn.com/i/magazine/new/keanu_reeves_oscar.jpg}

In a way, it appeared that it took Keanu’s, “Klaatu”, some time before he made his final decision of what he should do. To give this character credit, he asked sincere questions of others regarding their perspectives about his own decision to “save the Earth”, and he also put in a great deal of pensive thought on the subject. Although, if anyone was being overly emotional about any of “Klaatu’s”attitude and behavioral conduct, he was quite detached concerning such emotional displays from human beings; including entreaties and appeals for mercy.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/f4/56/9a/f4569abfaa9705dd9161e6aef9aa1eb7.jpg}

I will admit that Keanu’s, “Klaatu” , did keep me in suspense as to what his final decision would be. So, in a way this film did possess some edge-of-one’s seat suspense. Of course, I always love viewing films within my Muse, Keanu Reeves’, impressive repertoire. I must say that Keanu’s male beauty in this film could be described as arrestingly handsome. And in my opinion, I thought that “The Day The Earth Stood Still” was an engaging sci-fi film overall.

Keanu Reeves in “Young Again”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello, and Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog! Are any of you familiar with the vast array of films (including television films) within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire? Well, I am familiar with them, and I am interested in discussing his role within the television film entitled, “Young Again”. This shall be the topic of discussion for this week.

{Keanu Reeves in Young Again Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092269/mediaviewer/rm1525814528}

Young Again” was a rather enjoyable teeny-bopper type film to watch. It did take me back to the 1980’s; especially with the fun songs from the remarkable electronic keyboardist and singer, Howard Jones, being played throughout. For those of you who may not remember, Howard Jones often composed some fun and entertaining Pop songs throughout the 1980’s.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://img.liczniki.org/20130923/young_again3-1379967644.jpg}

 

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/8d/69/84/8d69844d9ddd61ef0163d90a42609018.jpg}

Howard Jones also, along with the legendary Phil Collins, actually played musical instruments for Ms. Tina Turner in concert before; which was exciting to watch. And the song, “Lucky Star“, by the renowned Madonna (a Queen B of the 1980’s music era), is heard in this film, as well. All of which serve to make this film so entertaining; as it brings back fond memories of the delightful 1980’s time period.

Storyline: “Michael Riley wishes to be 17 again and which comes true. He goes back to the high school where he fell in love with Laura and still be in love with her. Mick is very happy and excited to be 17 again, he finds Laura who is a widow having 2 children and then realizes the reason why they broke up years ago. Laura makes Mick understand that there is no way to go back. Finally Mick is willing to face who he is and has a new start with Laura when he turns back to a middle age man.” Written by Anonymous

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://68.media.tumblr.com/bf3d5d4f078bea792ee35ffacc008e27/tumblr_n8zy8zczEE1sh59xao10_1280.jpg}

Keanu Reeves successfully portrays the character, “Michael Riley“, at the age of 17 within this film. Michael Riley (who is referred to as “Mick“) is basically a charming, gifted student (oft referred to as a brainiac these days), trying to relive his misspent youth. This wish was made in order for him to return to his true love, “Laura Gordon“; portrayed by actress Lindsay Wagner. Yet, this reason is unbeknownst to him, during the initial stages (after the wish is granted by a guardian angel).

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://68.media.tumblr.com/c0bbf4f160950f6821de39e2ac97af56/tumblr_n8zy8zczEE1sh59xao5_1280.jpg}

One of the humorous facets of this comedy & science fiction/fantasy genre film, is that whilst he is in high school, “Michael Riley“, starts dating the daughter of his lost true love, and her name is “Tracy Gordon“. What is even more hilarious is that he only dates “Tracy” to get closer to “Laura“. And when both of them discover this deception, “Michael’s” world is turned upside down, and he is considered by his high school peers and classmates to be weird or a freak; as we are aware that adolescents love to gossip. For gossip is so fun and entertaining to them; just like with some mean-spirited, busybody-type adults.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://images.kpopstarz.com/data/thumbs/full/485206/600/0/0/0/actor-keanu-reeves-participates-in-the-15th-annual-lighting-of-the-downtown-los-angeles-official-christmas-tree-november-30-2000-in-los-angeles-ca.jpg}

Through several mishaps and errors, “Michael“, begins to realize that making the wish was a mistake. He comes to the conclusion that ‘you can never really go back’, thanks to sincere advice from “Laura Gordon“. And so he decides to summon his guardian angel again and requests that the wish be revoked. At first, it isn’t noticeable, but in a matter of minutes, he returns to his 40 year-old present day self; portrayed by the late great, Robert Urich (may he rest in peace). And “Young Again” concludes wonderfully with a very happy ending: “Michael” and “Laura” get a second chance at love, and a potential future life together.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.media4.hw-static.com/wp-content/uploads/constantine-premiere-keanu-reeves_2435165-305×400-305×400.jpeg}

As I have indicated, this is an entertaining film to watch. Keanu was quite believable in the role of “Michael Riley“. So, for any of you who may be interested, please feel free to watch it. Though, I must warn you; it is difficult to find. But, it is available for viewing in 10 separate portions via https://www.youtube.com/.

For any of you who may not be aware, 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 “Evian Magi” just happens to be the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves.

Keanu Reeves in “The Lake House”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello, everyone! And welcome to this Blog of Miss TaffeytheChamp. I believe that at least some of you are familiar with the Keanu Reeves’ film entitled, “The Lake House”. Yet, whether you are or not familiar with it, this shall be the focal topic of discussion for this week’s post.

{The Lake House cover Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0410297/mediaviewer/rm1478069248}

The “Lake House”  is an incredibly romantic film about the fated love of two individuals living 2 years apart; which displays some incredible break in the space-time continuum. Keanu Reeves portrays the character “Alex Wyler”, who is a hardworking architect who is basically dissatisfied with his life. I must admit that my Muse, Keanu Reeves, makes looking dissatisfied with life very attractive. Well actually, the word attractive should be his nickname, in this lady’s opinion. Now, you’ll have to be patient with my sense of humor. Though, I am certain Keanu is used to it from these Blog posts of mine by now.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/TSSuuwQ6pRM/hqdefault.jpg}

It is quite delightful how these two people discover via exchange of letters that they are living two years apart. “Alex Wyler” is living in the year 2004, and “Kate Forster” (portrayed by Sandra Bullock) is living in the year 2006. I also found it wonderfully precious how they managed to recall certain prior dates in time, and where exactly they were, and what they were doing on those dates. What was even more magical was how they were able to encounter each other during “Kate’s” past in the year 2004, at times.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://themysteryallianceevianssaga.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/0349c-_lake2bhouse2bpremiere.jpg}

Now, from my perspective, I found Keanu Reeves’, “Alex Wyler” character, more dedicated to the possibility of a future relationship with Sandra Bullock’s, “Kate Forster” character. And I don’t mean that “Kate” did not appear interested in “Alex” at all. I could just detect quite a bit of reservation, and much doubt on her part, about there even being any potential for a future relationship with “Alex”.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/b5/bb/17/b5bb176fedab00a327b15058c11df345.jpg}

Although this was an amazing film, I do admit to finding the “Kate Forster” character rather irritating, at times. She kept going back and forth with her ex-boyfriend (portrayed by actor, “Dylan Walsh”); trying to decide (it appeared) whether to plan a future with him instead. Now, “Kate” knew that she was not in love with her ex, yet she seemed determined to settle for a man who was not right for her, instead of waiting for her one true love to enter her life.

Synopsis:  “A lonely doctor, who once occupied an unusual lakeside house, begins exchanging love letters with its former resident, a frustrated architect. They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it’s too late.” Written by an Anonymous writer via imdb.com

{Keanu Reeves in The Lake House Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/ca/94/76/ca9476cd91e8218417952e22a85db623.jpg}

Please feel free to read the intriguing Rotten Tomatoes Movie Review of approval by a Top Critic below the web link: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/lake_house/

“The Lake House demands a serious suspension of disbelief, but if you accept it as a romantic bit of nonsense, it has its pleasures.” Written by Anna Smith of Time Out; a Top Critic

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/98/46/c6/9846c6c00b043a802c7d6d3fb6057514.jpg}

To be honest, if I had been in “Kate’s” place, “Alex Wyler” would have won hands down over her ex. Of course, that is definitely due to the fact that Keanu is so very attractive, and because my Muse was portraying this specific character, as well. I thought it was rather humorous that “Alex Wyler’s” secretary was chasing him when he didn’t even know she existed. As we all know, people usually behave this way out of desperation. And “Alex” simply appeared to tolerate her presence before ending their social associations outside of the work environment. Of course, “Alex Wyler”, did eventually leave his former position to open up a fascinating architectural business with his younger brother.

This was indeed a great film; though I was perplexed as to why the “Kate Forster” character was so sad for most of its entirety, even when a dreamboat like “Alex Wyler”; a man out of time, was pursuing her. I certainly don’t think that most women in such a situation would have behaved so morosely about such an incredible love affair. Now, it is quite a different circumstance if she was not interested in him at all. No matter; as overall, I absolutely loved this extraordinary, yet captivating romantic tale. It has left an indelible mark upon me as one of my most cherished, romantic Keanu Reeves’ films. So, please feel free to watch it whenever any of you, who may not have seen it, are capable of doing so.

In addition, for any of you who have not been apprised, 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 “Evian Magi” is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of my exceptional MuseKeanu Reeves.

Keanu Reeves in “John Wick Chapter 2”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello there! And Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog. By any chance, are any of you familiar with the Keanu Reeves’ film entitled, “John Wick Chapter 2? Well, I am particularly familiar with it, so I have endeavored to make it the focal topic of discussion for this week.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.shaw.sg/Images/Film/LJ025//m-johnwick2.jpg}

In “John Wick Chapter 2”, Keanu Reeves returns as the most unconquerable hitman ever. It does not matter what anyone does, no one appears capable of destroying him. He is unstoppable. What is so fascinating about “John Wick’s” expertise is that even with years of retirement (after having won his freedom from accomplishing an impossible task), his expert combat skills were honed (and were simply at rest), so that he returns to such work with exceptionally masterful panache. Keanu Reeves portrays this character with his extraordinary combat skills collected over the years from “The Matrix Trilogy”, and onward, until his “John Wick” combat training ensued.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/8f/fc/ca/8ffcca38b9d75429ea18f36efe87e8c5.jpg}

Storyline: “After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.” Written by an Anonymous writer at imdb.com

Synopsis for John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

“In the opening scene, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) heads to a warehouse owned by Abram Tarasov (Peter Stormare) to get his car back. Abram wants payback against John for killing his brother Viggo and nephew Iosef. John is killing all of Abram’s guards before he finally gets to his car. As he drives away, a whole mess of Abram’s goons start attacking John. His car gets banged up, and the henchmen slam into John with their cars, but the man is persistent and easily kills all the goons before making his way to Abram’s office. John simply pours Abram and himself a drink. He chooses to spare Abram in a peace offering. Abram questions John as to whether or not he can actually find peace…” [Taken from imdb.com via http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4425200/synopsis?ref_=ttpl_pl_syn%5D.

Of course, I am always awe-inspired when I view the exhilarating and exciting display of my Muse, Keanu’s, superior combat skills in motion. I unabashedly admit that it is absolutely ‘edge of your seat’ entertainment. Now, Keanu Reeves, has continually exuded phenomenal charisma and stimulating masculinity that affects one whenever he decides to enact characters on film. Thus, such captivating appeal should not surprise anyone; least of all me, Keanu’s little Musee, Miss TaffeytheChamp (as Keanu is the Muse and I am the Musee; whom he inspires).

For any of you who are not aware, Gun-fu is a relatively recent form of martial arts combat (with guns) being performed throughout Hollywood film and media. The current definition of gun-fu is as follows: “Gun fu, a portmanteau of gun and kung fu, is the style of sophisticated close-quarters gunplay seen in Hong Kong action cinema and in Western films influenced by it.” This definition was taken from the website: http://dictionary.sensagent.com/Gun%20fu/en-en/

John Wick Chapter 2” has received several Rotten Tomato Reviews on www.rottentomatoes.com; which is terrific. One excellent review of “Keanu’s portrayal of “John Wick” within this second installment is as follows: “Powering it all is Reeves as Wick, a hitman who wants nothing more than to leave the life behind yet seems born to it, so at home on the hunt and under fire that it seems to give him purpose.” Written by Sean Axmaker of Stream on Demand via https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/john_wick_chapter_2/

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/94/82/55/948255dc4f42d3a8ede601da2577e20c.jpg}

In my opinion, both films within this “John Wick” series (well, trilogy, to be exact) are both exceptionally mesmerizing forms of film entertainment. I truly enjoyed viewing them every single moment that I have had the time and opportunity to do so. Needless to say, I am continually proud of my Muse, Keanu Reeves, when he successfully and superbly enacts such eclectic characters on the big screen. Keanu Reeves can be somewhat of a charming daredevil, at times. As you know, you have always inspired this lady, Keanu, and will most likely continue to do so (and quite effortlessly).

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.aceshowbiz.com/images/wennpic/keanu-reeves-john-wick-chapter-2-photocall-02.jpg}

Overall, “John Wick Chapter 2” is a superbly produced film that ultimately grasps hold of the audiences’ attention. And it just would not be as engaging without Keanu Reeves’ essential contributions. But, please don’t take my word for it. Feel free to watch it, for any of you who may be interested. Now, for any of you who have not 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 “Rush Rush”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello all, and Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog! Are any of you familiar with most of Keanu Reeves’ film endeavors? Well, I happen to be, and I wonder if any of you have seen the 1991 music video, “Rush Rush” by Paula Abdul? If any of you have not (which would be surprising, considering how popular it has been), I shall make it our discussion topic of interest for this week.

{Spellbound Album Cover Image: http://yusukesuzuki.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Paula-Abdul.jpg}

The “Rush Rush” music video was a short representation of the classic celebrated film, “Rebel without a Cause“. Whoever decided to cast my Muse, Keanu Reeves, was quite savvy. For one thing, Keanu was becoming more successful (and would assume the role of the dazzingly attractive “Jack Traven” in “Speed” a mere 2 years later). And his version of the James Dean‘ character was so affecting; as his adorable fresh-faced cuteness could not be ignored. And who would want to?

{Keanu Reeves in Speed Image: http://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire4/02082008/8/9/4/5/89450f505931f0_full.jpg}

{Keanu Reeves in Rush Rush Image: http://photos.laineygossip.com/articles/open-abdul-27aug14.jpg}

Now, I was a teenage miss when this song and music video was released. And as I’ve said before, when I first saw him, I thought Keanu Reeves was one of the most beautiful men that I had ever seen. And to date, I still have not altered that opinion. After all, Keanu is my most beloved Muse.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/23/63/ff/2363ffe0a54f2cd6186f3fcbf3563c27.jpg}

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/6e/1c/e8/6e1ce86aabf3d26d668d9aadf5a84357.jpg}

Paula Abdul had quite a few songs that I really liked both singing and dancing to. However, she was not a favorite singer of mine. Yet, I could not help, but appreciate witnessing Keanu Reeves as her beautiful male counterpart (or costar) in this particular music video. And Keanu’s own rendition of the pioneering James Dean’ character, “Jim Stark“, was very convincing for me; I must add.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/82/14/c9/8214c961612b46ec0ce1e01f78697961.jpg}

And even if everyone does not agree with me, when I first saw this Rush Rush music video, I felt like saying, “Eat your heart out, James Dean.” I am always rather proud of Keanu when he simply oozes the charisma of any of the characters which he portrays on film. I even ‘bend his ear’ about such things, from time to time.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/b6/3e/da/b63eda9e3c6cb9c5841d9708aadfe12f.jpg}

Needless to say, this was one of my most favorite music videos of all time. Keanu Reeves has always been so easy on the eyes. One of the ways I describe his attractiveness is as simultaneously exotic and hypnotic. Also, his male beauty always astounded me whilst growing up because he could easily swing from cute as a button, to gorgeous, and to handsome at any given time. Thus, I often refer to his God-given male beauty as fascinatingly chameleon-like; through no engineering of his own devices, of course. It is au naturel; from French linguistics for the English word, natural.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/37/0e/4d/370e4dca4e43e0b51c27a0bbaebedbba.jpg}

In addition, his Asian-like, liquid brown eyes (one of the inherited gifts from his biological father), always added to his breathtakingly attractive appearance. You certainly have always stood out in a crowd; to this lady especially, Keanu Reeves. Though, you already know this. And incidentally, the anniversary of this music video’s release has just recently passed. So, please feel free to watch this music video for any of you who have, or have not, seen it at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eqU99FaEmM (Uploaded by user: Mk Almatrouk).

And 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 Endearing Muse and Inspiration for my creation of “Evian Magi”; the protagonist (main character) within “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. “Evian Magi” is the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves, as well.

Thank you eminently, Keanu Reeves, for being my phenomenal Muse, and such a genteel gentleman towards this lady; Miss TaffeytheChamp. And I thank GOD, most of all, for everything You have ever done for me. Now, 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 Enjoyable week!

Keanu Reeves in “Interrogations Gone Wrong”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello there, and Welcome to this Blog of Miss TaffeytheChamp. Are most of you familiar with any of the films (including television work) within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire? Well, I am familiar with them, and I am interested in discussing his portrayal of his own phenomenal self within the television comedy series entitled, “Interrogations Gone Wrong”. This shall be the primary focus of discussion this week.

{Keanu Reeves in Interrogations Gone Wrong cover Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3546436/mediaviewer/rm1735733760}

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/58/46/c6/5846c61c6d4fac9ec60fd34e0027d5f4.jpg}

I must admit that this was one hilarious interrogation by two incompetent and imbecilic police detectives, “Colt Python” and “Jack Steel” (portrayed by actors, Jim Klock and Mike Capozzi). My Endearing Muse, Keanu Reeves, wore an appealing tan within this particular film scenario. But, as the interrogations became more and more idiotic, Keanu’s complexion took on a more reddish beet-colored hue; as his anger and frustration was increasingly built. And who could blame him?

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/50/a6/59/50a659fe9ca893c72d1a50d1bbbbfc4f.jpg}

There are many reasons why Keanu Reeves’ interrogation incited such uproarious amusement, and I shall mention a few. For one thing, these moronic detectives committed an outlandish and fallacious mistaken identity; as they confused Keanu with actor, Mark Wahlberg. Any astute individual would never confuse these two actors. Keanu Reeves is reserved, somewhat shy (at times), and is quite an adorably attractive male. Mark Wahlberg is more of a rugged male with strong-boned masculine features. Thus, this is rather like comparing apples and oranges.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://themysteryallianceevianssaga.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/2ffc9-keanu_reeves_2.jpg}

Storyline: “Two inept police detectives always mistake the person they’re interrogating for someone else to the point of complete absurdity.” Written by an anonymous writer via imdb.com

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/54/19/32/541932daed5897db15ac71be8962b1f5.jpg}

The two aforementioned detectives also confused Donnie Wahlberg and his celebrated endeavors with his brother, Mark Wahlberg’s, successes. They also highly appraised Keanu Reeves, the actor, whilst simultaneously attacking him; as they were unaware that the interrogated suspect was in actuality, Keanu Reeves, himself. Keanu was also erroneously accused of foolish and criminal antics by these two halfwits; posing as police detectives.

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://themysteryallianceevianssaga.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/c1270-keanu2breeves.jpg}

Throughout this film, these detectives frequently confused Keanu Reeves‘ films with the outrageous crimes which he was accused of (as Mark Wahlberg, within their own thickheaded minds, of course). But, by the end of these absurd interrogations, they eventually discovered, fearfully, that the gentleman they accused of impersonating Keanu Reeves, was in fact, Keanu Reeves. Incidentally, the rating given for this particular film endeavor is an 8.7 via imdb.com; which is quite exceptional for a short film.

In my opinion, Keanu, my Muse, successfully pulled off this acting endeavor with intriguing panache. And if any of you are interested in doing so, please feel free to view this hilarious short film at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfvhhhl39hw. In addition, 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”. “Evian Magi” also happens to be the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://www.theearthchild.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Keanu-Reeves-05.jpg}

Thank you exceedingly, Keanu Reeves, for being my extraordinary Muse, and a sort of “knight in shining armor” towards this lady; Miss TaffeytheChamp. And I thank GOD, most paramount and most principally, for everything You have ever done for me. Now, 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.

Keanu Reeves in “Henry’s Crime”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello everyone, and Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog. Are any of you familiar with most of the films within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire? Now, I happen to be, and I wonder if any of you have seen the film entitled, “Henry’s Crime”? If any of you have not, I have decided to make it the topic of discussion for this week.

{Keanu Reeves in Henry’s Crime Image: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1220888/mediaviewer/rm1131002624}

Henry’s Crime” is a 2010 film about one of the most passive and extremely nice gentlemen ever. Keanu Reeves portrays the nice guy character named, “Henry Torne”. Now, to be honest, this “Henry”  was just too kind. He also lacked any ambition and purpose for his life. People could commit some unspeakable and unconscionable acts against him, and he would forgive and forget the offense so easily.

{Keanu Reeves Images: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/f5/5e/33/f55e33500f6c00ed5e4511094a527cce.jpg}

The reason I make these observations is as follows: “Henry” is prosecuted as an accomplice to a bank robbery that he was ignorant of because he trusted a former classmate and his acquaintances. He was then sentenced to 3 years in prison because he would not inform on the guilty culprits of the crime. His wife divorced him during his incarceration and had the audacity to marry one of the complicit culprits of the bank robbery, for which “Henry Torne” was in prison for. “Henry” forgave them quite easily, and even befriended them all, including all of the men whose crime he was doing the time for; which is just incredibly mind-boggling.

Plot Summary: “Released from prison for a crime he didn’t commit, an ex-con targets the same bank he was sent away for robbing.” Written by Anonymous via imdb.com

Please feel free to check out the Movie Review below the weblink: {https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/henrys_crime_2010/}

“If “Henry’s Crime” is occasionally too pleased with itself, it’s also pleasantly unpredictable, and it has a trio of sweet hambone performances at its center.” Written by Ty Burr, a Top Critic, of the Boston Globe

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/8c/82/0e/8c820eba0831dd204407d0cd83ad8b81.jpg}

After being released on parole, “Henry Torne” finally becomes a man with a purpose in life. He arrives at a misbegotten, yet pivotal decision to actually rob the very bank he was falsely sent to prison for robbing. A tunnel that most are unaware of is discovered which leads from the bank to a theater via a back-alley passage. Through much persuasiveness, he recruits his former cellmate and friend, “Max”, to partner with him by convincing him to file for parole (rather that spending the rest of his life in prison; as “Max” had become mentally institutionalized and acclimated to the prison environment).

Max” motivated “Henry Torne” to audition for a character role in the aforementioned theater’s production of “The Cherry Orchard” by Chekhov. Uncannily, the lead actress is a young woman who mistakenly hit “Henry” in a minor car accident whilst he was crossing the street. And it is perhaps poetic that Keanu’s character, “Henry”, ends up falling in love with this somewhat temperamental actress (portrayed by “Vera Farmiga”). The ending involves (for some), a culminating and unexpected conclusion with “Henry Torne” coming to a momentous; yet purposeful, and surprising decision.

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://assets2.ignimgs.com/2013/12/19/keanu1217131280jpg-8860d5_1280w.jpg}

I admit to having found Keanu to be very convincing in his portrayal of this excessively nice guy character, “Henry Torne”. So, if you’re interested, please feel free to watch it when you have the opportunity.  And 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 adorably Endearing 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.

Keanu Reeves in “The Gift”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello 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}

{Keanu Reeves Image: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/cc/ab/09/ccab0954f8e65aa973023bb7e00bcacf.jpg}

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

{Keanu Reeves Image: http://theredlist.com/media/database/muses/icon/cinematic_men/1990/keanu-reeves/167-keanu-reeves-theredlist.jpeg}

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.

Please feel free to check out the Movie Review below the weblink:{https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1103231_gift}

“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.

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!
