Movies To Avoid Corner

Point Break, in which Patrick Swayze, in an attempt to slow down and injure Keanu Reeves, hurls a dog at him.

Oh, man. Point Break is such a good bad movie. Pre-Speed Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze as a shaggy-haired surfer, and Gary Busey as Keanu's boss in the FBI.

"We're gonna be meat waffles!"

I should see if The Nelson has arranged a RiffTrax on that.

How else do you think I saw it? You think I'd watch that cold turd without a comforting layer of Nelson?

Can't criticize that movie.

Cause, you know, THE ONE stars in it ;-)

The surfboard has a better range of emotions than Keanu, but he looks good in a wet suit!
(Patrick Swayze as a blond, on the other hand....eh, not a good look for him.)

I don't understand you people. Point Break should have won an Oscar for best film. I mean, it had it all man.

I mean, dude, LORI PETTY. Tank Girl. You can't go wrong.

And dialog like this:

"It's basic dog psychology, if you scare them and get them peeing down their leg, they submit. But if you project weakness, that promotes violence, and that's how people get hurt."

Yeah. Anyone ever seen "Much Ado About Nothing" where Keanu plays Don John?

THAT was probably the worst acting he's ever done.

I'm sorry I must respectfully disagree, Point Break . . .

Beautiful Scenery + Patrick Swayze + Gary Busey = Perfect

Now for Keanu's worst acting job . . . try A Walk In The Clouds.

The best vintage Keanu is the Bill & Ted Series. Come on . . . Napoleon eats a Ziggy Piggy? It's like poetry.

I agree with Amy Lou... Keanu + Shakespeare = my biggest nightmare

I'm with Cbell and Amy Lou ... "Much Ado" should have credited Keanu as "Coffee Table" not "Don John" ... his performance was just SOOOOOOO wooden.

Happy Belated Birthday, MB ... mine was January 13th (which means it fell on Friday the 13th last year ... good times, good times ;)).

mike, unlucky said...

Really? Mine's on Friday the 13th this year.

Which would explain the lousy karma I've seemed to have these 17 days and change . . . :(

the buxom wench said...

Yeah - we're a day ahead here with the whole time zone thing so I had my Friday 13th Birthday karma last year ;).

Hope things look up and Happy Belated Birthday to you, too :).

No worries. It's not until July, so you're not late, you're early. :)
