Alex Winter on how he and Keanu Reeves brought George Carlin's touching cameo to 'Bill & Ted Face the Music' (spoilers!)
"Jesse Thorn. Our guest is Alex Winter you probably know him best as bill from bill and Ted along with Keanu reeves he starred in bill and Ted's excellent adventure bill and Ted's bogus journey and the brand new movie bill and Ted face the music. Alex is also a director who's made several documentaries. His latest just came out a couple of months ago it's called show biscuits. It features interviews with former child stars about how their time working in the entertainment industry affected them. Let's get back to the conversation. There's a lot in this in this movie also about parenthood and the ties that bind to their and in particular how children kind of actualize the dreams of their parents in some ways for good and bad. I saw that theme also and show Biz kids. Your documentary that made me wonder if you saw parallel there to do you find that particularly compelling. I was raised by two artists. My parents were modern dancers. My mom had company in London, which is where I was born in my dad ultimately had a company in the Midwest. which is still going on when we moved to the states house quite young. I started out as a child actor professionally by like nine or ten I was working professionally by twelve thirteen I was in two long running probably shows back-back. Took me all the way into college so. My relationship to. My parents and to my family and the complexity of that and this idea of I wouldn't call destiny. That's the sort of of the movies that. But you know this idea of expectation and what is your life supposed to be, and of course, it's never going to be that and it shouldn't be that and and and how do the children affects the parents? How do the parents affect the children and of course now I'm a dad and so how'd now it's a triple layer cake right And Those are all those drams or fusing together and crazy ways and I had really wanted to make a film that allowed people who had experienced this firsthand meaning people that come up as child actors. I wanted them to be able to express the very nuanced layers of of that experience. Intimately I just had not seen that done and I had. you know obviously had done it myself in private, but I'd never kind of attacked at. So you that was very satisfying to be able to make and it was really odd to try to make show Biz because for the first time about ten years ago I couldn't find financing and it was exactly the concept. So it was very very strange to. Lovely. But strange to start making the film, shoot a bunch of interviews go away, make bill and Ted be dealing with you know Ted's problems with his dad our issues with our daughters live and our destiny that didn't end up the way it was supposed to in how did that impact everybody and you know, and then of course, like acting for the first time gangs I left act the acting business in after doing Dylan Ted to really Very consciously, and so acting again and I'm making a movie about child actors about parents and their children and it was it was like Oh did this all really need to happen at once was that necessary? I my Gosh. Every aspect of my entire life right now. So Yeah it was lovely and heavy Frankly yeah. Tell me about that decision to kind of I. Think you said, disappear for a minute and then come back and be doing more behind the scenes work than acting. Well. We talk about it in in show Biz kids and it's really not uncommon. It's. It's you know I had started acting I had a very, very public life from around ten years old to about twenty five on nonstop even through college. I was still acting on TV and doing commercials and TV shows. Nonstop and after bill and Tattoo amid and other film called freaked I was just psychologically. I was just worn out and I knew. That I was not I had some friends around me that were crashing hard at a couple that actually died. It was a pretty heavy scene. For Lot of us that had come up because we're all around the same age. So a lot of us were trying to transition from from you know sort of youth in the business too young adult business. We're not having the best time of it and and at the same time I gone to film school and was very very committed to my work as a writer director But it you know for me, I needed to make a conscious decision to get out of the public eye and just go live some normal life and I didn't feel like I'd really gotten to do that through pretty. Formative Adolescence and postal license and. Evan Rachel Wood speaks about this really well in the in the movie sodas will we? All everyone had the same experience I was sitting across from Diana Kerry, the hundred year old woman who was baby peggy, and she literally laid out my entire life story was completely jaw dropping. And that's what had happened to her when she had to really figure life out and she had to get away from the business and. And just be in the world and that's what I did I left. I left my acting representation and I moved and started a production company in London and I just shot commercials and wrote scripts and had a kid and live like regular Joe and. Got My head together and did some growing up and when I felt comfortable again, I started training again to act that was a while ago I just wanted to act for myself I didn't WanNA act. NAFTA, worry about it for paycheck I trained for a long time and it was just coincidentally had started kind of rumble back into life. But it was really lovely. It was a great way to come back can't owner. He's like, what am I, very, very dearest and closest friends in the world and. Everyone on that sat was family and if they weren't, they were really gracious and very happy to be there. So it was extremely sweet environment to step back into but Yeah, it was fun. But I I guess I needed the twenty five year break I I took it.
Bill & Ted Face the Music Review
"One, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, we met bill s Preston and Ted Theodore Logan in the movie bill and Ted's excellent adventure they returned in bill and Ted's bogus journey in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety one, and now almost thirty years later they're back in bill and Ted's face the music Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves return as well. Bill and Ted respectively, and this time they'll need not just their triumphant man to save the world but also their daughters I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes we're talking about bill and Ted face the music on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR here with me and Steven from his home studio is plan Weldon of NPR's arts desk. Linda and also with us from his home in Washington DC, we have JC Howard who is a producer of NPR's Ted Radio Hour and how I built this I. J. C.. Good to have you back good to have you back. So if you are all not familiar, there's not a lot setup that you need or these films except to say that Bill and Ted were introduced to us as teenage bro Friends who had a band and just wanted to have a triumphant band when they were older and eventually they got sucked into time travel and picking up different historical figures, and later we're going to try to save the world and there was. A whole story where they were going to ultimately right a great and triumphant song it's it is a surprisingly complex canonical story of which you need to know practically nothing in order to enjoy I think these films Stephen now that I have thoroughly set the table kind of what is your attachment to bill and Ted these movies. If you have one, well, I've seen bill and Ted's excellent adventure. A BUNCH OF TIMES I've seen bill and Ted's bogus journey a couple times. These are movies that have kind of existed on the wind for the last thirty years. I re watched these movies within the last five years I. Think I talked about the. What's making me happy on this show but still kind of needed to go back to be reminded of what happens in them going into this movie I mean this movie is coasting on goodwill. There is a certain amount of fan service going on here. I mean I'm not sure how many people were clamoring to revisit these characters almost thirty years later but at the same time. Something really really smart happens in this movie and you can tell before you even start watching it, and that is that it is ninety three minutes long all three of these movies are about ninety minutes long and I think they understand that that is the perfect lengthier. There is a certain amount of sequel bloat here. The first two movies are incredibly Chintzy. The stakes in the first one are no greater than maybe Ted we'll get sent to military school and you're there's like the entire fabric of space time can be ripped apart. This is a very shaggy movie. I. Think there are stretches where it sags but. I do appreciate the number of updates. You don't have the gay panic stuff that really dragged down the earlier movies are no gay slurs in this movie. This movie bothers to give its female characters a little bit more agency the women who become their wives barely have any part to play in the other movies, and here you get more of that you get their daughters who are given kind of their own subplot. So I appreciate that it's not just rattling around with these two dudes who are now middle aged, but they're taking an interest in people outside of just bill. Yeah and you do get their daughters. The structure of this one is kind of that they go on one journey through time and their daughters meanwhile who are played by Samara weaving and bridget lending pain go off and tried to get a band together for their DADS to play with on this epoch song that's supposed to save the world. So you kind of have the one journey going on the other journey going on then naturally in the third act it all comes together and I did like those two performances from the daughter's there are also some kind of new faces in this one kristen Schall plays Kelly who is The daughter of Rufus who was the George Carlin character in the original JC it feels to me like you are too young to have a moustache attachment to these movies but I have been assured that that is not the case because television. Yeah. That's exactly right. I was actually super excited to hear this movie was happening and I'm going to show my age a little bit and say that I was born pretty close to the release of the First Bill and Ted Movie of Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. So my first encounter with these guys was as as they say a most impressionable youth. And I was one of what I can only assume are millions of kids who watch bill and Ted's excellent adventure every time it ran on cable TV. The thing about the first movie is the problem that they needed to solve was very simple. Billon Tade just needed a good grade right granted the solution to that problem was a little larger than life and included doctor who like time travel home box and all but the problem itself was simple. The second movie bogus journey was certainly a little nuttier. It had killer robots and aliens and the grim reaper. Didn't feel like it hit quite the right notes for me. No Pun intended. So win a third film was confirmed. The main question I had was like, what are they going to do? Are they going to try to recreate the success of the original and go back to simple run of the mill time travel Orlean into the bizarre and crazy and from just the trailer? It was clear that they weren't going to just lean into the bizarre, but they were diving in head first. But I think what separated this one from the nineteen ninety one sequel is that it has a lot more heart. The original movie was really about the friendship of bill and Ted and saving that they didn't seem to care as much about saving the future as much as they wanted to just make sure that bill and Ted could still just be friends. So it had this kind of surprisingly earnest quality and I think that was what was missing in the second film in this third one for all of its bizarreness in all of its doubling down on death in heaven and hell, and all these kinds of weird things. It really reignites the idea that there are friendships and. Relationships here that are worth saving. Yeah I think you're absolutely right that they go back to the relationship between those two guys being the center of the story and I. Think it's really funny. One of the things that I think is featured in some of the the trailer stuff but they are both married they both have you know lovely wives that you have met before since they got them from the past and they have relationships with their wives that are completely enmeshed with their relationship with each other. So they can't conceive of having individual marriages that aren't some. Like a four person marriage I thought that stuff was sort of funny because I think one of the things that carries over like if you're going to take these guys in age them thirty years you have to either assume that at some point they became more normal, which is a weird thing to assume about bill and Ted. Or you have to assume that they are still very bill and Ted, which would mean that they are still kind of very fixated on this idea that they are a duo and they are always together and they are each other's right hand Glenn you had indicated on twitter that. You perhaps did not have the same nostalgia for these characters that perhaps I have and others may have what is your take care? All right. The ticker about to hear from me Linda Holmes is going to be a subjective it's rigorous. It's clear eyed it is on demand by the gauzy scream nostalgia because unlike all y'all I never saw these movies until this week just to prepare for the show and I didn't see him for very simple reason I didn't have to I. Mean I was a junior in college nineteen, eighty, nine I was studying marine biology. I was dating a string of profoundly unfulfilled women and. Being. On a college campus and eighty nine and not here boobs heinous strange things are afoot at the circle k just over and over and over. So I felt like I got it. And think about the time late eighties early nineties mainstream. American. Comedy was kind of stuck in this catchphrase based mode and I was like, okay. I don't need to see this while I've seen them all now and I'm here to tell you. Sure I guess that's your thing. I like the Guy Listeners of the leads I. think that's the appeal here but left only once an excellent adventure. It's a visual gag that gets tossed off. It's a Freud at a mall holding a corn dog and it's like, okay, fine. You got me I mean it's low hanging fruit, but you got. And in face the music this new film shore on Paper Samara, Weaving Kristen Schaal Holland freaking Taylor they are gunning for me they are coming. But ultimately didn't stick. It's not supposed to. That's not what it's for. It just evaporates on contact with the eyeballs and maybe that's exactly what the world needs. Right now is dumb sweep dumb but I

So it was really and then chats and we want you to have an accent she's like okay. So. It's really She's spectacular. Halley to Yeah Alley Berry on it and That was actually one of the that's one of the cool things that's happened over the course of time with the films that there are people who have like common in chapter two with someone who is like. You know to the director like let's go do this and you know in common committed really to John Wick action you know John Wick. Action Training is no joke for movies is this movie fighting is fake fighting, but it's fun but you have to do the judo Jujitsu have to work with the weapons you have to put the time in. Common did it and and then for chapter three when how in Halle Berry came to the director Chelsea and said, I love these pictures I want to be a part of this and we had a role and. and how he berry just. I mean, she spent. Told like over six months shit. Her characterizes to Mellon laws. and so she trained them for over six months and then did all the judo and all of the job training and and you see it on screen one sequence. Like Crazy the whole movies that way is it? Yeah it's you. Know, it's a bad ass movie which begs the question for me. What comes next for you? You have this vision. Cool projects. Oh i.

Who Act or I've heard that you don't necessarily see the films they paint a picture, but they don't need to write. And I'm not like that I like to at least see the film you know I wanNa know if what I said Yes to gone through this experience if if we have, you know if if it worked you know and if you like it so anyway so if it does, you know you wanna like you know fan the flames of your baby. which is what we're doing here.

I was introduced to this builder guard Hollinger. Over the course of four five years. He designed and built a motorcycle. Motorcycle was amazing amazing and I said to him that needs to be in the world. Do you want to start a motorcycle company? He's been in the motorcycle industry for a long time? And, eventually, he said Yeah, let's give it a try and so we started it in two thousand eleven. We've been selling motorcycles and for the past four years. it's called arch motorcycle and we build but I call it performance cruisers long wheelbase between. we make over two hundred of the parts building momentum.

"Involves training and cooperation with all the stunt at the camera. and. That's also part of what makes John Wick little different is the action and in the characters and the humor. That's. And within that action that you're talking to. Go, hit refresh reload. Hydrate passionate about the moving. that action you're talking about You're you're doing at all I, mean, right you're out starts no stunts don't you? Your fight Jackson Spike Del extraordinaire stuntman extraordinary take anything away from him but you're fighting. percent of what's happening there and for me that's. It's great to be working with the director who has that who wants to do that because if you can make an immersive what is that? That means that if I can do it, I'm ki maintaining the connection with the kids and with the story, right? It's not like there's no. This suspension of disbelief is a little different. You know if you don't have to and if you're right there, right, you know listen if it's wacky crazy stuff then you're just like Oh God. What did I just see like? Well, that's exactly what I thought. The knife fight scene would break the glass knives. You get some thrones of some very closest and very important areas. Yes indeed. Very. Fun those scenes. Yeah and that's that's part of like John Reaction Sense that the director wanted to have a knife fight with a group of people that was like a snowball fight. Like just grabbing knives and then throwing at each other and then getting more no and making getting throwing knives and. John Wick Has Kevlar Soothe right. Bounce off. But yeah. So this idea of a snowball fight being a knife fight. Very Wicky. At the damn intense Nobel fight. Yeah. We shot a couple of days and You know it's really fun. It's really fun. I mean the director talks about the action being kind of. Like dance you know like there's this vision of a movement and then comes choreography and there's the troupe danced stunt people myself learning choreography. And then the cooperation to do that with the camera with the production design sets. And so there does have something that's and then you watch the performance of it. You know that knife fight is a lot of long takes like there's no cut this one section I think almost a minute long. That's just. As E.. Sees it's crazy. It's crazy but it's spun. So what's it like to do those scenes now because you and I are not in our twenties anymore? No, we're not flying over a senior and. Fifty four pushing me a little bit oh. Yeah. Oh you're not there. You're in the for loop still. Is Different to do an action scene today than it was twenty years ago in the Matrix for example, wow. Yes. Absolutely. I mean if more so. Going back that for can't say can't run. First weakening. Okay it's more about recovery. Yeah, it's I would say the biggest difference I would say recovery and The running but with with the experience though. Become you become more efficient and Hopefully. You get bad better at what you're doing. So for all of the week, I generally train about three months before we start filming working with the stunt team. The action team because there's judo little Jitsu, all the weapons manipulations in chapter three, there's A. Calling Gun Fu, another wicky and things combining so. In John Wick. In the first one was car food because I was like hitting people with cars and sheeting out of cars, and then there was gun food because I was doing. You know people coming after me to kill me I'm grabbing them with a weapon. So I'm doing judo with words you Jitsu. And then in chapter three, we wanted to open up the action. So now there's a horse food and There's a motorcycle, there's some motorcycle. Made a better term than motorcycle. Moto foods. Okay. With Ninjas. Ninja Moto food. That's it. You know what I love about this series to franchise of movies because I don't think people realize given how successful it's been. When you guys started, it was an underdog. It was not a big budget movie was now it's still not a big. But it was it wasn't. It wasn't expected to be the smash your of course. Didn't have a ton of money to work with the Hollywood standards for action movie, and it probably wasn't even that easy to get it mate just on the concept on the paper was that a challenge out of the gate. Sure definitely. Resources wise but. you know. In the first one chance to Helsinki and David Leach where the director I'd worked with both of them on the Matrix in the Matrix. Films have stunt people, and then the two of them partnered up starting action design company. Called Eighty seven eleven action design and they would do choreography and then they would be you know certain studio films would hire to do choreography or to do second unit photography. So they were starting to direct second unit when John Wick came to me from the producer Basil I wanted. That script came I had a couple of notes, a couple of drafts, and then we started look for director so I thought. Chad and David because they've been interested in. Always been working with them action and story. and. I knew that they came from the Chow Ski Film School Rights and we knew each other we'd gone through that. So I brought it to them and for the action, and then they were like, actually, we'd like to direct this and when. You know this goes to your point of what were the resources that we have was the vision that we might have and I felt like with their experience and because. Has A. Potential for different kind of action if they were the people for it. And so there was really like. All hands on deck? Let's let's go and and the material Mrs with new directors you know the material brought in. MAZING. Actors and actresses like it brought in. That were you know? Willem. Defoe in McShane. This lackey and Kooky and then they would meet the directors and be like, okay. People know what they're doing I'm want to go out. Okay. Yes. On jump into this world. And then. So regardless. And Yeah. We didn't have this or that but we had. We had the passionate love and so you know that just helps you keep going and of course, Michael Nykvist. Pick, was performing an ad Alfie Allen Anyway it was really deep winter. was really a core cast. What do you think people respond to about these movies Kiana? There are a lot of action movies out there, but you have not only big following passionate pollen. Bugler. So psyched this movie's coming out there speculating. Pictures of on horseback a few months when. They're they're into it. They're in there with the what do you think is about that character? I've heard people say that they like the The never say Die Quality John Wick that the people speak about The kind of that. It's about you know his dog being killed. So this I you know that seems to be just like, okay once you do that. Know and we're on your side. Yeah, and again I think it's the real world. Then there's this hyper other world is continental high table world and I think the films Look Good In chapter two I mean we had jotted Selah in.

"Another episode of the Sunday sit down podcast. Thanks clicking and listening along. got a good one for you not just because he's a name you love. Movies you love. But because he's guy, you don't hear from I don't think. Depth that often it's Kiana reeves whose career launched thirty years ago. Can you believe thirty years ago bill and Ted's excellent adventure came out in nineteen eighty-nine turned him into a star. He went from there to movies like point break, of course, speed the monster hit with Sandra bullock made three, hundred, fifty, million dollars. I think unlike a thirty million dollar budget also, of course, the Matrix movies where he dodges bullets in slow motion as neo, and now he's here today to talk about the third installment in his John Wick movies. John Wick three para bellum really enjoyed sitting down with Keanu reeves. Again, a guy I hadn't met before a guy I don't think you see all over the place on TV. And he was happy to sit down and talk about his career You'll hear as we dren towards some personal stuff, not his favorite subject area, not talking about celebrity stuff and DMZ stuff but just even asking about his reputation as a super generous guy, there are these legendary Hollywood stories of him renegotiating his matrix deals. So the crew could get more money less for him. He bought Harley. Davidsons reportedly for his stunt man and all his movies. A Super Generous Guy a guy about whom there's some folklore I don't know if you saw in March when he you know the plane, he was on made an emergency landing and he landed with all the people on the plane and he arranged with the airline to get a van to drive everybody to where they were supposed to fly. All these sort of sightings of Keanu reeves in the wild. So we try to touch on some of that he gets into it but what's most interesting to me is about his career this long range of thirty years and we talk about it all including John Wick Three Para bellum right now with Keanu reeves on the Sunday sit down podcast. Thanks for doing this. Thank you for. The invitation and the opportunity to converse. Absolutely. We've already been conversing quite a bit. We'll pick up where we left off but I wanNA talk I obviously about the movie. Congratulations. Thank you on John Wick Chapter. Three. For people who may have not seen the first two yet or people were excited now to see that there, where do we pick up John? Where is he in the store? My? Gosh. Well, I mean for if you've seen the film where you haven't seen the film, I would probably slightly different. Yeah I'll do the I don't know how people who've seen the first. Chapter to John, Wick had killed a member of A. Called a guild that's in this other world. You have the real world and then you have these other John. Wick. World rises the world of the Kontinental which is the hotel. And you find out. Through the series at these hotels exist all around the world. And then there's this guilt or this. Thing above the continental called the high table. So I killed a member of the high table on continental grounds meaning the hotel. which is breaking the rules and so winston fantastic and McShane who runs the New York. City continental at the end of John. Wick to gave me an hour. But he made me excommunicate. Oh right and there's an open contract soak in an hour I can have no help from the system of the KONTINENTAL and. In, an hour the assassins can come after John Wick. At the end of Chapter Two, we saw John Wick running out of central park for his life right chapter three slam cut. It's a little later tonight it's raining and John Wick is still on the run. The how's he going to survive? This is this should have been the trailer right here by the way that was incredible. I mean you're new. I'm ready. To cash lost John Wick Action Yeah. How do you describe John Wick like who is he and why was he an interesting character when you first read about Yeah it's the character and the world that was created by the right Oh Derek Kolstad this reality and other reality. In John, Wick John's partner life partner, love of his life passes away. And she gives him a dog. To kind of keep a connection, I think to the heart and soul to keep him grounded. To have a friend because she knows but the audience doesn't know that I was an assassin, a mythical assassin and five years ago I did the impossible task to get out. But one day as the director likes to save fate would have it. Running this I'm just getting gas Mustang with the dog and getting dog food and this kid pulls up anyway long story short him and his. Friends come. To, the House and they kill the dog and beat me up and then it turns out that the kid was connected to a Russian crime Lord Vigo who I had worked with and helped with the impossible task and then John Wick goes from the grieving husband. Man To. The. Bobby Yego. The mythical assassin who? Wants to get some. Revenge. All this to say. Consequences right. So this man who is grieving and trying to live his life, this event, this fate, the something happened, and this other part of John, wick part about dog with that net was it was trying to ground him and once that was taken from. This other person? This other thing? Kind of light and dark side of ourselves, and he goes to this revenge place. Then that has consequences which chapter two he was like I just want peace they take his car he wants his car back is leave me alone. I. Just WanNa Greek. But in the world of John Wick, there's high table. There's a thing called a marker, and if your market means I you, I did something for you so now I HAVE There's this character who ends up being the person that I'd kill. As a kind of vange. And this is the long version housing. Story. Rate Let's see the movie. Walk through the. End Up, doing. It's this journey with themes of action consequence. A. Little fate and destiny I mean this series is has a lot of honor in it. There's a lot of rules, consequences breaking rules obeying. This idea built fealty to the to the high table And all of these characters that inhabit this world and then you have John Wick action. And Humor. So you ask me, we'll. How do I explain you know this I think we're following journey of a man who's grieving. And who is in a battle to to live WHO's trying to survive with the consequences of his past and the actions that he's doing. I think he wants to try to kind of become free. But it keeps coming after him and. Yeah. So that's what we're. Doing amazing summer then there's humor. Humor sure and John Wick Action John Wick action this kind of longer takes. Really the director Chad's to Helsinki I call him visionary wants to make the action in the mercer experience wants to almost present it like. Like theater like a concert like it's literally happening in front of you. That.

All saying is he knows very cool looking interesting man with a great back story And he has made some very interesting decisions in his life and he clearly cares very much about putting the work into things and making it good and entertaining people and there's not a lot of people like that he's remains private and he definitely you can daleas good taste.

I will trace back down the street. Oh my account number is Yanni less statements about Kia Neil Yeah I I love Canada so much I think he's severely like underrated as an actor. I would love to see him Do like kind of a straight role again. Like kind of a left turn from John Wick like I would actually love if Nancy Meyers. And KIANA. Like re teamed up That's kind of or him in Kathryn. Bigelow get like I just want to see him. Kevin some kind of light for boys she really does kind of like a quiet drama or like A. I'm excited for the wrong because I think even if it's just a cameo unlike excited to see him Will I O? Will he endure as an icon? I think.

"To the pond lost. It got to expect to excited. I can't receive praise. I lose lose the work and in that way I am Keanu of myself I was GONNA say. Do you guys think canneries is ever going to win Oscar. I I don't think so. I think he's GonNa be like just the guy who does really creatively fulfilling work and you'll never get the probably deserves as an actor but also I don't know if he's I don't think I can't imagine being a guy who campaigns for an Oscar. I would have to be a thing where he was like. Old people were like Counter an Oscar kind. I could see him getting an honorary. Jackie Chan style us. Oh that would be nice. That counts towards you got I know and I get that goes on the slot for but will he get the sort of that part. Yeah I don't feel like he doesn't really like the like the campaigning part of it and like the false modesty seems like one of those people who's like my job is to be an actor. It's not like the rest of the stuff like comes with it. He's like I show up. I like right act and then I can like right away on my Harley. Yeah but I also think too. It's like he's in this strange sort of slot of like like our culture. Where like Oskar movies are like? They don't necessarily overlap for sure and like that thing of like. Is there a director who kind of sees that and get that not that many people don't they don't consider like he's not considered it? I had a great. I mean people didn't don't even think of him as being biracial and his name is Ray. I think that people write him off in a way. They're half I also think that like kind of becoming a meme hasn't helped right. I think the like most recent phase of his career is like people not like pre John Wick when all the League Sad. Kiana stuff was happening at that early. Mean where people are like. He's immortal. Yeah he's just like his my skin he's kind of just like easy to make a joke about because we don't really. I feel like it's probably because we don't know that much about his actual personality so it's easy to just be like oh the wo- gut like Like oh he's can project onto and also he has so many like both pre John Wick. I feel he had so many giant movies where they weren't like Kiana reeves movies. They were like giant movies that Keanu Reeves was in. So it's like the Matrix is laying huge because it's the matrix such a big part of it but it was also like bullet time and Bluebell. And like there's so much other starts going bald. Oh Oracle there is no spoon Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. Anyway I just think It's it's very easy to write off. Kiana yeah we. If you had to pick a favorite Keanu like vehicle like what do you think will my own private Idaho with my favorite movie? Well all time cool but I think that John Wick. Yeah because I can really. I watched that movie in. It's to me. It's like his masterpiece if he was to disappear and go live on an island afterwards. Being thank you this is the end of the beautiful career of Kano. Let's watch this Kid's beautiful your C- of twenty three children. Yes thank you. I think I think that's gotta be that. What's your favorite well now. I'm just thinking about John Lick again. It's so an it's so dang good A movie I really like him in that he's like. He is being goofy his His parenthood when he plays like the boyfriend. Who's just kind of like who is just like a dumb goofy boy. But he's like so sweet and like so tender like Oh my God. Yes playing with little Young Joaquin Great to but you'll have to see two pills to ballots two hundred. He's like close to that family. I hope so Well key need. Somebody keen does these. That's a whole different conversation rock Rooney. Mara She's who knows I don't know Dave will look like birds to me. They look like different kinds of birds. Yeah Joaquin whatever. We don't have to walk in Phoenix I I. I'm thinking now we mentioned earlier would when you are Renting renting tapes with your family. And there's like I remember. There was just like a maybe a month or two months even when we would go to like blockbuster like me and my mom's like pick which tapes durant and bill and Ted won't be playing every single album. I got bill and Ted was such like a VHS store like screen because unlike kind it's inoffensive right like. Oh Yeah. Is that Napoleon at the mall. Yeah it's funny to hear him. Talk About Bill and Ted. Because he's just like we didn't right. It's kind of the same thing with Jim. Carey and Ace Ventura. It's like these to these style of movies. That never would ever be exist now. bill and Ted's much more innocent As mature has problems. He's littered with sort of just wrong but definitely movies where you could imagine the actors making them going wonderfully huge Napoleon Outta waterpark at the water water friend Our our our friend bridget. She's on a show right now And she was telling a story about Jennifer Jason Leigh is also on the show and she was saying she was talking about annihilation. Because I saw so incredible and Jennifer Jason. Leigh was like Oh yeah. Thanks so much. You know I'm GonNa tell you something. No idea what was going on. I just showed up and Kinda said the awards where I'm really glad they put everything together. She was awesome.

Yes we'll That doesn't make any sense there. How is that a whole movie and I was like? Don't worry about it. Completely Work Sandra Bullock. Very good. Very good to see she's a full. Oh you're star. Yeah those performances. That doesn't have a very much anymore. I someone just kind of shows up and you haven't really ever seen him before and then it's like. Oh you're moving any felt that two million. Sorry Olivia Speak Timothy Too. Shallow may feud too young but this is but it's like I really liked him in. Obviously in like was weeping. Call me by name but it feels like the follow up. Yeah the same thing You know you put Julia Roberts and mystic pizza and then you immediately have. I guess woman anything. I think. The culture doesn't exist in the same like there's so many more places and more and it's a thing a lot of actors and success now is based on nepotism and knowing somebody who knows somebody or going to some fancy school as a kid. Which is Timothy? All Julia Robertson. Sandra bullock I feel like grew up on a farm in like took a bus. Here's what's crazy that like an actual part. I feel like auditions.

"Hello my goodness another fricken. Beautiful Day in the land of ICONOGRAPHY. I thought you were GonNa say Los Angeles. I would never say kind of the elephant in the room is that we are on the other side of the fully recording on the west coast. And maybe that's something that you can hear already something you can do you. Can you hear how relaxed I am? Can you hear me soaking in the salt? Water of the. What Ocean. Is this one possessive? Sure have you been to the beach and no no no? Are you each person? No Okay censoring. That's dead on. That is not a beach person. And you don't win drive so this is why does the odds of a perfect city for to be in right now. I would like to go to the beach but I just I. It's not within my power for myself. Okay as somebody who cannot drive. That was the worst way to frame. Yeah do you think like taking an Uber to the beach? Something about that. Feel sad to me. It's heartbreaking. Drop me off here and I might have I. I have a little bird a lot to places where it's like well. This isn't where person should be like to sometimes like toward cow. I'll like Uber to class Uber into your spin class. Pretty it's pretty sad. I walked back from it so it's walking distance getting okay. Well Hey so okay so well. I`Ma Libya and this is iconography We gather together. Some of our favorite people friends comics and they will bring on a celebrity. That they love that they they don't bring them into the studio physically a bring them in high up in a corner and they have to sit and listen to us. Talk about them silently and they listen. Well I oh what have what's what's up with you? I haven't seen you a minute. That's true And that's another thing that's another elephant in the room. We haven't seen each other in awhile since I kind of unofficially moved out here. I Guess Yeah So. It's been a bit of time Every week eleven I bring on an icon of the week. Somebody Or something that we've been really into thinking about music and about us over And I think we've we've both gone to do some I Dunno some digging from soul searching while we've been apart what what's an icon of the week that you've been thinking about okay In your absence I've been really digging into Just like people that I don't know celebrity And I think I'm today I'm going to say my I kind of the week is Hugh Jackman a fun thing about being i. Oh is that we went psychotic over tex one day and kind of I blacked out and I came out of it and we had. Tickets does Hugh Jackman at Madison Square Garden later this year. This is true this is so sad and then last I flew in last night and watched Logan on the plane and was kind of thinking about that. There's only two modes of Hugh Jackman. There's there's wolverine and greatest showmen like. There's no like name movie where Hugh Jackman just playing a guy. And here's the I K. I literally like the only movie that I could think. Of is the one where he's that politician Do Oh yes. Oh the Gary Hart Walk. Yes yeah 'cause he is doing the greatest show bed or maybe also there's that one from the early two thousand zero one with Meg Ryan where he liked time travels to her and then she time travels back to him. It's not called Bonnie and Clyde but it is like two names late and Leopold. Walk my body anyway. So I'm just thinking about him thinking about how you can live a life where you're just two totally different people and not exist in between like the opposite of like washing a binary. Jack when he does exist in between like real life him. He's like. I'm friends with Ivanka. Trump here is he. Yeah you didn't know I didn't know that he is friends with them because they were all together at a gala and somebody was like. How are you friends with them? And he was like we put politics aside knows he does your politics but he's also like you're here to him. It's not as business. I also like that. Huge Ackman's wife is normal looking. I I I think I've talked to you about this. I talked about getting it on the ground floor of of someone. I think that's kind of what I have to really Bildt. Relationships ARE INVESTMENT HOT. But not currently successful is your hot but not currently successful but you you see that like maybe later on and you didn't send you over. Read we right at Trehgam into falling in love with for sure. If that's what's happening in that marriage you know. That's that's what these in a marriage is. That's its own them and their Australian God but Anyway I respect her for again for normal for looking in the face of Hugh Jackman. Notre looks not normal. Yeah I oh who's your icon this week My icon of the week is my trustee will bike. I bought a bike because I can't dry. And they're like it but you don't bike to spin client don't like biking because sometimes the roads are scary and like so. I know which we're aware has bike. Lanes work has bike lanes. Some friends houses. It's like easier to bike to you but when I first got on my bike I was biking on these streets and like man. I mean those left turns so I'm currently working on my core strength right now. You know it's like the limbs look Nice but everything is strong as it could be both trying to get hot this month. This is true we have a hot month. Gaw where we're just trying to and it's not necessarily physical more like on the inside the inside but so of course drink those little weeks sometimes when I got to let the left arm fly up to do the turning wobbly little it'll do? Is that core strength or you just bad at writing by. That's the other thing about the bike but the bike I have died on it yet and so because of that. I like bike. Do you have a home? Yeah okay do you wear it every time? Hey Okay because I think I'm GonNa die at any moment. Okay because I hear it should hold on. Hold on your helmet attached properly because a lot of people were their helmets like wrong. Oh you is it tight or is it lose. Its pretty tight but when I went to the bike shop and bought it the guy was like you have too much hair so I think just like either way. I'll only be as safe as can be You know is it like one of the ones that has holes in the top of it. Does your hair come through. I'll absolutely thanks. I think that makes it makes you sound like a cartoon character. I think in many ways you are gonNA have. It died on. This bike just proves that the laws of the natural universe don't really apply to begin like I'm Sorta like two D. Cartoon I like. Yeah long like coming up to ours. I'm fluffy family bike. I'm Hugh Jackman on the Mike off of that. Do you want us to be introduced? Aren't gas is an incredible comic If you listen to forever dog podcast you might also recognize him from another great pot on the network there. I've been lucky enough to be on He's just the frigging best wig. Tom Do sloppy day. How's it going good? I really liked that. You've picked Hugh Jackman thank you because I think he's really underrated as a superhero people. Don't give him enough right. Yeah everybody goes heath. Ledger is the is the king king of Superhero performances. But you yeah. He's been there and he was there before like Batman got greedy or whatever accidentally is like gee you like putting in the work for twenty years and he is like a fully formed character. Beautiful character work in movies. That aren't that some of them are great. Now he's so good in Logan. Oh my God so I say underrated for how was huge but still so good in it too. Yeah not grizzled and drinking all the time. He loves that kid though he does as Nice Body that thing. That's like let's get to the crux of it. Gorgeous Body. It actually is. It's actually wrong to not objectify him for his hot power of the body that feminine. And there's some really good. There's a era of you. Jackman that I used to have my ex step. Mom really liked when he was making the move van Helsing Wow and he had grown his hair out bangs. He had like the sweet boy. Boy Swoop things and this is a really funny hair time period. He's on the cover of magazines with this awful haircut. Anyway look it up. Listen you know I'd say riding a bike around? La is more dangerous than driving. The car. Don't say that it's not that I know of this every time. I say that I ride a bike to people who live in L. A. They're like in ano- seventeen people got hit by cars on. Vikes and I'm like well okay. Well don't like a lot of hills here are you. Are you going out those? Who is that like? I'm I'm sort of taking long trips of times because I'm trying to be. I'm trying to be as flat as possible. These cavs are not strong. They're very. They're quite leak. I know I do but I just get so nervous about driving because I grew up in on the east coast and then like lived in New York for six. Or you're about to say where you grew up in the switched it to the east. I saw Boston forming eleven. And I'm just going to keep trucking through because I don't like learn how to pack the car and she does this sometimes. It's hurtful but I don't know I never learnt like like I feel like cars. Make me a little anxious with. It's true you don't WanNa be anxious and riding. Your bike is probably nice to go simpler. You listen to music. Sometimes I'll like play it out or OPPO. My Gosh. You're that person African person. Yeah that's cool. You know. I go to the gym now and I read a stationary bike. And I listened to Kim petrous. My eyes closed totally. Got Shot Thumbs. Blissful. It is like I try to imagine myself singing the songs in front of like you know what I really do. Imagine me at a talent show. My senior year of high school. I walk into this song I wrote. And then and that is a consistent fantasy that I've always had since I was a senior nice. This feels like the plot of or what I imagined. The plot El Fenix Teen Spirit. Oh yes I I want to see that movie and but you're in it now. That'd be great. I think that would be a better on European with dean. Witter are we gonNA see Teen Spirit or is that movie cancelled well It looks bad is yeah. Yeah and also she next. Minghella are in a weird like maybe..

"There are some of the characters that they go back and bring billy the Kid Napoleon Napoleon Socrates Joan of arc Genghis Khan he they bring them all back and they're on the stage and they do this big production well. I know I've commented that sometimes I. I don't watch certain movies. I mean time restraints. I mean I can't watch everything. Well maybe if I didn't do anything else I could probably watch everything but gee you're teasing me here with little history. Maybe I I shoot back. It's it's kind of like the way back machine exactly I think Abraham Lincoln is one of the guys to the film takes place in the following times twenty six eight. Obviously the future may nineteen eighty eight. Which is what the the movie is based in? I guess you'd say eighteen o five eighteen seventy nine four hundred ten BC the fifteenth century. Nine Hundred Ninety one eighteen ten fourteen twenty nine twelve nine eighteen sixty eighty three and one million B C. When you're there was a film one main be is that the one today see Raquel Welch? I mean you know. This is kind of interesting. The one thing I noticed about this in you know the other film dumb and dumber which has nothing to do with Canada. But it's interesting because some people could get into to this and get typecast and not treating seriously after being in one of those and you're trying to cross into dramatic and what I'm thinking about is the actor Jeff Daniels who is a very serious actor. He's been in a variety of films of loved the guy and of course he's been appearing in Broadway on the play to kill a mockingbird and yet he loved loved playing in dumb and dumber and the very serious actor and you think Oh my God if that's on your filmography and people go back and look look at that. How could they treat you seriously? And you worry about being typecast and I think maybe some people didn't take very seriously after the fact perhaps perhaps I dunno usually stars will stay away from that you know absolutely especially a fair goofball in the past but he he doesn't he embraces it because they're doing another film it as we speak here. I have a couple trivia things on on bill and Ted the screenwriters discovered both Alex Winter and Kiana. honoree they were. They were good friends on already when they were messing around in queue outside of McDonald's in front of them so the screenwriters are sitting there. They wrote this movie. They're trying to find fine actors and they're just they're in a line and McDonalds the two guys and Kanye Reeves in winter in front of them and their does goofing around messing around around. That's what we want. We never know where you're going to find some of this being being discovered or the source of inspiration to. Here's some stuff I know. Dialogue is is important and we talked about that before there are seventy uses of dude throughout the movie are- as well as thirty uses of the word excellent so somebody sat around and counted on. Hey Dude Dude. Excellent one other thing. Alex Winter Claims that after he filmed this movie he received positive live letters from history teachers for encouraging children to learn about history and the figures and then received negative mail from English teachers for affecting affecting the way students speak now. That's it the battle between the history teachers in the English teachers continues the next bill and Ted Movie Bill. and Ted's bogus journey. I won't go into all the stuff in this one but it did cost Twenty million to make this one and it grossed thirty eight million. In this movie movie. There was a newer character that was involved in as the grim reaper. William Sadler. It's a good movie as well. I mean it's good is in you. Laugh a lot and then coming in the two thousand twenty like I said they're filming right now. Bill and Ted face the music From a different director director Dean Parse it. I guess it is the Keanu reeves will be playing playing again. Ted Theodore Logan Alex winner will play bill s Preston. ESQUIRE and William Sadler will return his grim reaper. Unfortunately George Carlin Carlin has passed away since so. I'm not sure how they're gonNA handle his character. I'm sure they will says once. Told Fade Save the world. During a time traveling adventure you're too it'd be rockers from Sane Demus California find themselves as middle aged. Dad's still trying to creek out a hit song and fulfill their destiny. So I can't imagine what that's going to be didn't An Reeve or hasn't he'd done Didn't have a rock band or something back in his past. uh-huh darkstars something. I don't know I remember might have been about seeing about it or something so so let's not exactly a unknown tone stretch for him. He played bass in the band. Becky he's been in a couple of bands but we should say something about where he's from. He is Canadian. He was born in Canada he he in fact He. He lives in Los Angeles but he grew up in Toronto. I believe he was a hockey goalie. Who's in several sports? His name came from his uncle uncle. James Henry Keanu reeves is a Wyan phrase means what has great great uncle. KEOUGH ALU EH. Whose name means the soft breeze raising in Hawaii Car Gal who I wouldn't even I wouldn't even go there? It took took me along with Lily. Luke Luke never mind. He managed a pasta shop in Toronto and he was under. That was pretty neat. Yeah he's he's fairly he. He dropped out of high school school. Become an actor which his mother wasn't too pleased with that which I would understand. Well he moved on of course and he made a string of films and we talked about speed and speed for those of you who have not seen that movie he was a cop. There's a bomb on a bus that if it drops below. Oh a certain speed. I think it was what fifty five or fifty and Sandra bullock is. The bus drivers shot by someone on the bus. Incidentally incidentally accidentally and she's taken from group of passengers and she starts driving the bus and the whole thing is how do they save the bus and and so on and so forth so that not only eat some attention. I think that film probably made a lot of money. I don't have this statistics but it was a very popular film. One one of the first times I became aware of Sandra bullock and they were great together. They had good chemistry in that and I think one of the things I always kind of heard or until I actually. We saw him on film. Some people think thought he was kind of wooden but before that he was also in Bram Stoker's Dracula which Gary Oldman played prince of darkness in that that one. And it's pretty elaborate. Well done I'M A BIG DRACULA FAN and particularly the original book and he tried to follow the book pretty much and he played Jonathan Harker which is a critical. Oh character in that. There's a couple of I'm going to talk about. Let me just throw out a couple that I'd I'd light. I think you've got some back story on some Trivia regarding thing is. I actually like the devil's advocate. Where he's this hotshot lawyer from the south? He's scouted by this law. Firm in New York turns out that the guy's his name is John Milton and it's Al Pacino who basically is the devil himself and he gets sucked into this law firm and his wife is Charlie's Feron and I may be incorrect but that's one of the first for one of the first times. I remember seeing her on the screen. It's pretty early in her career. But I thought I thought thought the movie was pretty cool. I don't know that it was critically acclaimed. He did something to get Mr Pacino on that film. Did he not eighty as a couple of things first in order for Pacino to be in the film film he took a two million dollar pay cut. It's pretty significant. But he did that once before in another movie. Yeah I think it's actually after I think it's actually AL replacements. Would Gene Hackman yeah man when he he deferred ninety percent of their salary to get gene Hackman onboard. The other thing is is they were taping speed too at the same time that he taped devil's advocate. They were anticipating that he was supposed to be in speed too but he actually turned it down for a few reasons one. He wanted to do this movie. That he's dead Devil's apple's advocate but also he didn't like the script and he just didn't WanNa do they type of action film at that moment. In time he's still best friends with Sandra bullock. It just another another tidbit that he was taken that movie while they were taken speed to Dennis Hopper was the bad guy and Jeff Daniels was also so speaking of Jeff Daniels. Here we go again. These same people keep popping up. He was in speed as well. As a bomb expert. I talked about directors he worked with COPPOLA WOAH IN DRACULA and the guy who directed devil's advocate Taylor. WHO's a pretty good director officer and a gentleman? He's also the husband an of Helen Mirren who we've mentioned before and in fact when we discussed Hobson Shaw and our show a few times ago. After we saw that movie she was in that and love her. But shortly after devil's advocate he moved into his second film that set in motion a series. That really put him really on the map as a pretty major force and those are the films that you have have watched. I believe you're talking about the Matrix at what I'm talking about will teeny movie. He did bent while back. A few people saw that I think directed by the Chomsky Brother House without skis. I guess the Hausky brothers Kiana start is neo. Laurence Fishburne was is in there as Morpheus Carrie Anne Moss play trilby and Hugo weaving played agent Smith. Yeah I'd say it did well. It was budgeted. Sixty three million grossed I four hundred and sixty three million so I mean that was pretty darn good. That was the first one the first one. So basically here's the little synopsis on it. So the movie follows software programmer and Hacker Neo. Who is played by calories? Lawrence Laurence Fishburne plays morpheus and Morpheus But leaves with all of his heart and soul everything in them. That neo is the quote one prophesized person who will end this big war between gene man and machine the human human beings create. Ai Artificial intelligence well after a while the artificial intelligence takes over starts going after humans and big war happens and where they're at right now. A I created a human battery bank basically each human is actually grown. They're put into these pods and the Matrix of describe with the way. That Laurence Fishburne doesn't in the in the movie. The Matrix is a computer. Generated dreamworld built to keep humans under control in order to change. Change a human being into a battery so basically they're connected to the Matrix through their head because they think that's reality but really in reality during these little Oh pods and they're creating energy and there's millions and millions and millions of rows and rows and tall is can be just millions and it's all linked together all batteries so they find neo the get him to disconnect from this matrix which is pretty crazy he wakes up in a pot of liquid hoses connector. All over him. He's he's hairless he's never seen light so they rescue him. It was pretty funny because his training they do for training is they. They basically you're hooked up to the computer and download the training to for instance. There's a part in the movie. Where Trinity and NEO says? Do you know how to fly helicopter. She said I don't but I want a second. And she calls and says hey tank Anita program to fly Blah Blah Blah then he downloads to her head and all of a sudden okay. Let's go now. I know how to fly the plane so they do the for everything. They did that to train Kiana. He every single different type of martial arts and use them in gun and driving a car. All that kind of stuff was just downloaded into his head in boom right then and there. He's able to do it. Movies are all interconnected. They're basically it goes from him that no one you know what reality is and that type of thing all the way to the last movie. Where are they finally at the very end? There's peace between the two and that's as far as it goes really but.

"Welcome to Episode Fifteen Kiana Reeves on this episode. Johnny and Eddie discussed the filmography of actor Jonah Reeves Johnny shares. A few of the Kiana res Movies is that he has seen. Eddie gives the lowdown on bill and Ted's excellent adventure and the Matrix trilogy. We invite you to grab some popcorn and your favorite beverage can see and put up your feet. It does. We're talking loses welcome back. I'm Johnny Popcorn and I- medically and were talking movies Eddie. I know you've been touting this the episode for what is it about a month now rather than me going on for any length of time here is kind of an introduction. I'm going to go ahead and ask you the key question where we're going today Eddie. Well Johnny we're GonNa try something a little different. We're going to do our first to episode show on this topic we're talking Keanu reeves he ano- read now. It's going to say he's a nice guy. I've heard a lot of Nice things about him. He's made some pretty good films. I'm saying the same thing they're saying. Why would we do parts on Kiana Reeve? When we've only done one part on a guy like Denzel well as you know? There is a certain character actor that Mr Reeves plays that we both love that whole character will be the subject of show number two this episode. We're going to go into his this filmography his biography because there are some major tent type roles. He's played in movies. That's we're going to do to part key honorees. Yeah I think he's one of those actors and again. I knew of him I found out I look into filmography was in dangerous liaison which is pretty classy film. He had a bit part in that that but where I really knew him was point break when he was played. The surfer infiltrated this robbery group. If you remember there were the presidential mask and Patrick swayze Oh is the leader and it was pretty good and inland. Came speed with Sandra bullock. which hey I really liked that film? But he's just a pretty nice guy. I mean it wasn't some other other what we've called before icon stars. But then I think there's as you know he's one of those guys that's been able throughout all the films he's done. He's now hit the third third time. I believe. We're talking when we're talking about episode to third time he's come up with some pretty interesting characterizations that have moved his career career forward. You're more familiar with the first two of those than I am particularly the first Eddie made besides the character that will make up part two of our two part. Show here earp if you would say Keanu reeves to me. First thing that popped in my mind would be bill. and Ted's excellent adventure. Speed was a good movie. That's who I think now. Of course once we get the part two of this perch oh I mean gloves off to think of right away but before that it would be bill and Ted and he's redoing he's he's actually going back and revisiting net. Ed Character isn't he. I saw an interview on the today. Show where he's in fact he said going back to that character and you could explain a little bit about that movie. He's actually more nervous about doing redoing that what is it about thirty years later. Yeah I think they're the thirty years later. What were the eighteen or nineteen when the characters both ability teenagers yeah? They were teenagers the the premise of the movies. That have to do some things to try to a AH plus on an oral exam about history which is right up your alley at is. That's good. I'm impressed maybe you should Russia's this maybe I should let me just go into into the movie because the reason reason is and we're going to do a little differently folks because this is a transitional first of all this kind of established him anyway for the people like you who are wear film and a lot of people like that and are excited about the reduction of the thing and then the other one. You'll visit that except another what we call it a benchmark in his career next time. I want to give too much away next time. We'll talk about that what I would consider the third and maybe the the greatest biggest benchmark greatest to us the effort to us. We're a little bit definitely anyway. Yeah so the bill and Ted's excellent adventure. The first one came out in one thousand nine hundred nine directed by Stephen Herek just say cost. Ten million grossed forty million the accounting department did call. They did say that You know you might have a you know they might have find a spot for you up there. That's why there was a number two stars Keanu Reeves as Ted Theodore. Logan Logan and Alex Winter has bill. S Preston Esquire in this particular movie. The first one George Carlin was in his character was rufus. He was the the person who came back to their time. Time travel thing all their traveling all over the place. So I'll read the you read the summary here. Small town of San Demus a few miles away from Los Angeles. There are two nearly brain dead teenage boys going. And by the name of Bill S Preston Esquire and Ted Theater. That's about it. They have a dream together. Starting their own rock and roll band called the wild stallions. Unfortunately they're still in high school and on the verge of failing out of their school as well we're in danger of flunking most heinous tomorrow Ted ahead and if they do not pass their upcoming history report they will be separated. As a result of Ted's father sitting him to military school but what Bill L.. And Ted do not now is they must stay together to save the future so a man from the future named Rufus came to help them pass their report so both bill who and Ted decided to gather up historical figures which they needed for the report. They are hoping that this will help them. Pass the report so they can stay together and play the wild stallions..

"That's right you said at the beginning of the year was an i loved upped and so good i loved it and i was like oh i this better the huge like 'cause i thought it was the best one how berry i loved those dogs. The german shepherd scenes jeans and the horses in the kharafi was just not with on the motorbikes the the samurai sword on motorbikes freeway on the ridge. It's just ridiculous. <hes> i loved it and then when it came out it was it was in a may i think it was a huge hit and i saw it again probably one of the best films of this the air on a slow definitely talked about like the sequels to remake those the ones. I love him. Yeah i think of this year where they loved the most. I think of john wick three and eventually zanan game yeah. That's there are other ones. I think i love. That's the problem. I can't think of them but those are the two i immediately go to and that's what's sad about movies these days although again there awesome cool trade like did you see the latest trade the fa- joe joe rabbit. I'm sell show it to you after this. I'm so excited for that film. It looks like something so different totally bat shit crazy and it does yeah looks really good okay. We're almost done then that net foots film that came out of nowhere. We'll check how the franken love always be my. Maybe we told you about that right. I had seen on that flex. It's such a charming film. I can't remember the name of the guy but i love him to and he was in the interview anyway. He's really good and that wraps in in this movie and then keanu reeves plays. A version version of himself is so not like whereas attention tends just douchebag but man he's so good in slow motion when they introduced him to tale bomb bomb brands so much most these blowing kisses yeah it was fantastic and that cafe where you you like what was it i think you know i think you listening to the thoughts of the animals you something so no weird yeah i mean this year john three amazing cameo and always be my maybe and then toy story for where he plays cocoons which again i didn't love toy story four but he was very no doubt fan of toy story. Oh you love yeah. I toy story three to me is still oklahoma in the why why like even better than the first i won the third. Bono is the bathroom normal to me yeah we. I think we talked about it. I didn't like i thought buzz. Light year was completely sidetracked yet and and it didn't make sense to me that would he would just leave. Everyone like i mean that's not who he is so anyway. We could go on a tangent on that but i loved it yeah. It's still still have the same ama billion dollars so it did yeah but kiani was great as duke cobham <hes> and then as i said they've just wrapped production action on bill and ted faced the music which i'm excited about i mean but at least i think next year it's either gonna be colossal disaster. Kinda like zululand landed too tight or it's going to be brilliant so hopefully the script is good because it's alex winters playing those characters in the mid fifties and it has <hes> samara. We've won alex winters daughter and then did you see a typical at this from a typical young leaves towards yeah so they play play the daughters awesome. I'm excited for that and then the news that just got everyone that does that now matrix for is being made twenty-one with carrie anne moss coming back and kanye reason again. I'm not totally sure how because obviously i guess just going to reboot the matrix or something or bring them back but obviously hey there aged by twenty years but i mean who am i kidding of course our watcher matrix movie especially with all the now the original cost in i'm sold i expected expected to be similar to star wars in that everyone will be incredibly excited and it'll either do phenomenally opie a huge disappointment..

"The the buddhists believe is the reincarnated and then it goes into the whole poss- life story of buddha and this that and the other is a pretty bad movie. I was too young to consider it a sore one-piece. He's got the boom very weird all right well. Your dad likes one fan cohost. That's her her. Dad's name okay then. I've actually seen even cowgirls. Get the blues. I don't remember him in it but samantha mathis i think was in that who i'd huge crush on but it it was a terrible movie here. It was a really bad movie so we will move on from that see. That's what i'm saying as much of a lot. He's definitely done some stinkers okay so the next film is when he became an international star yes which is one thousand nine hundred four speed. I love speed so i mean i saw this. I saw listen the theater. I remember the buzz i was already a fan of his from point break from bill and ted but he wasn't known as this big main kind of endless hunky star at all. It's made him the top magazine yeah. I think it's because you're right. He still had that kind of surfer stone kind of dude five yeah. This just established him as a leading man and sandra had just kinda blown up. This was the film that made a big star trek nick chemistry and talk just out of this world. I'll always remember at the beginning of the film pop quiz hotshot. There's a bomb obama on the bus. The bus lose fifty miles an hour. The palm is armed. Once it goes under fifty miles it blows up what you do what you do the bad guys naming dennis hall really good this guy. I saw that i had actually a creepy obsession with that film. I watched it it over and over and our most people did i mean so it was huge. It was a sensation jeff daniels. All you're right. Sandra bullock was also like action suspense dispense with it was funny and is going. I am and it was so ridiculous but totally believable right and you're right. It was nonstop adrenaline but he was phenomenal and his chemistry was sandra. Is i think what really elevated so it made him kind of more than just like the action in hot shots because there was this romantic part to it as well and they were just adorable. I saw in the theater and remember. It's one of those films where you go like. It's one of those films. I talk about that. Don't happen these days where you go to a movie and the entire audience is just raptured and just like oh my god this is an everyone was applauding applauding and cheering out and you're like when can i see it again right yeah i saw two or three times in the theater and many many times on VHS DVD blu et cetera so speed established keanu reeves as like a big shave with dr who we'll just as a stock leading man he was off to the big and then for some reason he did johnny minimum nick. Did you ever see that. I think certainly was terrible. It was a science fiction movie. I saw in the theater it was oh something something needs not a robot but it was like this kind of like punkish sifi but he's huge now so they mock mocked today and it was just a i saw in the theater and it was terrible and what's weird is he did a few films like this again after speed because then he you did a walk in the clouds ninety five now your check so i'm gonna give you the floor right. I saw at once. I thought it was really sappy and languid super sappy by. I'll talk to a very sweet love story. I don't remember it. Yes so it's <hes> it was like an italian one. Maybe i wanna say post world war one. He's like a soldier coming home. He stops off on a bus in italy and there's is crying. Women the basically the concept of the story is is she. She tells him you really do this. I've seen it quite recently <unk>..

"It's actually a very good movie scored my own private idaho okay very critically acclaimed but it's not a movie. Everyone knows because it's about gay hustlers. They're gay hustlers. Okay an it's a very kind of quirky dramatic dramatic movie <hes> it. I mean him and river or very good net. It's very well. I haven't seen it but i have no. I'd recommend i mean again. It's not everyone's cup cup of tea. <hes> then following off of the <hes> you know the i think the colt buzzing status of bill and ted's excellent adventure they did bill and ted's focus journey which is actually underrated. I love to do that film but it wasn't a big success but that film i think has stood the test of time. It gets better and better at scott. Evil ted an evil build evil robots on robot chubby you know and <hes> <hes> the princesses and then death the guy who plays death williams sadly is fantastic annette breast out of five. I i suck your battleship anyway. He was fantastic in that so i mean he's coming back for the third movie as well death is and it just <hes> i really enjoyed that movie sore again last year for probably the first time in maybe a decade and was surprised how much i actually really enjoyed it so that was really good. <hes> then the after that again this is another film where he kind of he forayed into more dramatic movies and he got kind of slandered for this and i don't think he's as terrible as everyone thinks he is. I just not a big fan of the movie which is bram stoker's dracula so i thought he was pretty bad in this you did so. It's interesting though that the two you've we've mentioned that he's considered really bad syrian. He's he doesn't suit period and that's in miami miam- surface style lingo leaving his guys do sometimes have trouble in acting thing in certain ways and so forth. I watched it. I thought he was it is him in that kind of scenario. Just didn't have chemistry in my opinion at all in that film. I thought they were cute in that recent net flicks moving when owner rider gary oldman anthony hopkins. I didn't even think anthony hopkins was good in that movie. She don't like the film very that's what i'm saying. I'm not a big fan of it. Gary oldman is good and i think his chemistry with winona ryder was actually quite good and it's not a great movie but yes he gets keanu gets lambasted specifically for dracula <hes> and dangerous liaisons behind behind the true and i would just say is miscast not social okay. We'll move on his what's weird because this is a period piece much ado about nothing too readily by brand. I've definitely seen it and i like it and i don't remember him in so it's one thousand nine hundred ninety three and he's the villain and he's actually quite delicious in this movie quite good in that. I really liked him now. I just got an image weird because somehow he pulled us off look. I don't love this movie. This is this is when they were doing all the shakespeare films. You know and it's all in shakes. I like the story of right to do about nothing a lot. Yeah it was a charming movie and he's like the conniving one kind of stirring everything but he was quite good in it so it's kind of odd that civilian exception to the rule otherwise i agree with he is meant to be an yeah. The the funny thing is i actually agree with you but this is just a strange obsession then again. He doesn't have a large role in to not really in the other so we'll reset to the gods okay so then i guess he's really trying to make like special movies award worthy movie 'cause he'd yeah i mean this is just a bad movie little buddha. Do you remember that movie. So what's funny. Have you seen that yes several times really i've seen it once loved this movie now and he he kept replaying it. What's it about again. Just remember him like naked like a little kid..

"Is comedy classic and point break absolute classic. I mean johnny utah that name alone a member of the FBI and again people rag on him for his acting this movie i think he's great and i mean he's playing a surfer dude undercover. FBI agent i. I think he's just fantastic. I think his chemistry with lori petty is fantastic but most importantly the bromance with him and patrick swayze is is just phenomenal soga. I love it. This is directed by kathryn bigelow one of the best action movies still i remember back in today. The sky diving sequences unheard of that was like so shocking to watch a loved this movement. It's it's a phenomenal film. He's amazing in it. I saw that film way later. Just so i hadn't came out when it came out. I saw maybe ten years ago so oh wow so after speed after all these other things i loved him in and i and i just as much thought it was spectacular. This is when i just this is when i was like okay i this is someone i really bill and ted and point break. I was like sold this guy's. He's just fun. He's entertaining. I love him and there's so much other things to love about that film as well gary bucy's actually great and the red hot chili peppers are in this movie. It's fantastic and the action sequences off phenomenal yeah. It's it's that chase sequence sequence. I always remember to this day the skydiving scenes i it's fantastic okay good to that point break so his next movie is a little independent movie directed by gus van sant and with river phoenix where they were like best friends. I've seen this movie..

"The next one is young blood. Which i actually haven't. I haven't seen either. I think it's like a sports movie honestly asli i haven't seen it so <hes> can't discuss it will move on from nineteen eighty eight permanent record. I've never even heard arguments with no idea okay good so there's a few hair where i was going through his category because you know me. I like to cover them. A war and it's like well. I've never even heard of these but i'm gonna mention them. Next is the the prince of pennsylvania never heard of these like low budget indie movies <hes> then the next one which i have seen i do remember him in this and and poor keanu gets rid a court for this this movie role which is dangerous liaisons. Have you seen so this is like number one. He plays well. This is like can official version of cruel and tanya. I remember based off dangerous liaisons which was a big oscar film with michelle pfeiffer. John malkovich glencoe uncured reeves. I mean it's like it's olden times. It's hundreds of years ago victorian period and and he is horribly miscast. You know look. There's nothing wrong with him. He's just miss cost when it's got really top tier actors like glenn close john malkovich does and it's a little yeah he just he stood out. I don't think that he was really terrible. But that's decent film. It's a good drama. I enjoyed that movie the law and he plays the lead as in malkovich glenn close and <hes> michelle pfeiffer leads but he's someone who courts michelle pfeiffer and he's the guy that has the deal with john malkovich and kills him in the end spoilers but the films like from the eighties. It's like thirty years old so he's got. He's got like a significant role in the movie but he's not a lead most of these. He's not a leader. All you know river's edge. Even it's an ensemble boca's but he's in that film throughout okay then often dangerous liaisons the night before again never even heard of it so i am assuming you have an either okay good and then one of his most iconic roles nine thousand nine hundred eighty nine bill and ted's excellent adventure so i mean i've loved this movie since day one like since day one. I absolutely adore this movie. It's you know it's a cult classic movie but actually what people forget was. When it came out it was actually she quite successful. It was even quite well. Reviewed 'cause once interesting about this movie and i've gone back and watched the just a few months ago. It's actually quite a smart move. It is yeah because these two kids who are like loses. They can't really play any <hes> you know instruments or anything like that and in the future that's supposed to come together as the wild stallions and bring peace through that music but they have to like pasta his streak loss in order to do that so rufus you know goes back in in time to help them out and gives them a time machine and they go through time but it's like a history lesson you learn about socrates and the policeman ling could than all these i mean it's actually quite educational but of course that's a bill s preston esquire and ted theodore logan together we are wild stallions stallions and feel like it was the star of that type of comedy like wayne's world and different things and other things followed this kind of like dude comedy and well. It was the first broke i had something like that. My sister brought that film into our house and it was like oh this new movie out bill and ted blah and we we all loved. That's funny because one of the first people remember watching with was. MSA and emmanuel is married to miss any sister. I mean we were huge fans of of those movies so bill and ted's excellent adventure. I mean again. You know i mean i. It's a silly goofy movie but he was great. The and you know it was such a fun movie..

"And you know it was a a you know like yo- wo- i am johnny utah a member of the earth be anyway i love. I love and what's interesting is. He's done everything when you think about he now. He's really redefined himself as like an action star but he's done comedies. He's done drama sifi. He's done really stunned under some of the best stuff out there so anyway so that's why this episode is dedicated to keanu reeves. We love you. We love you johnny. We really do and i'm i'm so happy for him. I mean obviously his the kinison's has kind of been brewing for several years with the first john wick. When i john wayne movie came out it was just this like low budget action flick that everyone disregarded and then the critics were and were like holy shit. This movie's really got it got like incredible reviews full stood up by a puppy yeah oh my god yeah and then it was but he is front and center and he's just so bad ass in that movie and now it's a franchise with three movies that just got better and better like the mission impossible films the only thing i can kind of liken it to you know they just better and better the the the third one. I absolutely loved but this year has just been ridiculous for him. I mean he's like leading a you know a video game character likened of him at that net flix film <hes> will always be my baby which was so charming where he parodies himself like a pretentious asshole version himself. He's so good in john rick three three para bellum which like it made more than both films combined on the first weekend fantastic. I love it <hes> billon intead face to music which finally went into production. The long awaited sequel. I loved those movies <hes> which just wrapped production and then of course they he just announced matrix for who knows how they're gonna do that. I guess quite simple all just probably reboot the matrix or something but that's only in my mind that thing <unk> happening because of kiana read totally stop power again because again. If you remember in the ninety s he was one of the biggest as you said or the two thousands he was one of the biggest stars and then his star kinda faded but you never stopped working. He really went into some more. I would say <hes> not necessarily even low budget legit productions but things that were a little bit more off the limelight you know yeah i mean we also have to pull the some of them are turkeys yeah some of the things and some of of them and you know maybe he just wanted to step away for a bit rhythm who knows i mean again i like he got his hollywood star fame or well no he put his handprints the grauman's t- TLC theater what used to be the chinese theater and his speech was so endearing man. I love making movies. I get up every day and i get to make movies and entertain you. I love what i do.

Michael Jordan, Keanu Reeves And Emile Hirsch discussed on Collider Movie Talk
"So apparently the matrix matrix for it is happening variety reports that loud on what caskey will write and direct a fourth matrix movie with kiana ribs and carrie ann moss reprising their roles so given all the rumors circulating about the matrix. I was surprised to hear this especially given the ending of revolution. So what do do you think about this news. Where could they possibly go with the story. Now i gotta let coin ready for this movie. It's okay in one thousand nine hundred nine twenty years ago. They foretold how ominous technology was gonna be. That movie was so prophetic and now we're living in an age where we often often don't know what's real and what's simulation whether or not you go to burning man. There's a very zatarain surreal quality to what reality is because of fakes because of technology. We've been overcome by technology technology in real life and now there is the perfect time to make the matrix four to retroactively fix the matrix two and three which could have been one very good movie rumor was i heard this this was back in the early two thousands that the animatrix and the matrix two and three it was supposed to be a trilogy but they wanted to do one before the matrix one after the matrix but because of the star wars. I don't know if this is true. Through warner brothers like no no no so they made the animatrix and then they split two and three into two movies but it should have just been one and that's why this movie's filled up loaded. I don't know if that's true but now they can fix that the matrix is more timely than ever keanu reeves is back in another hot streak carrying moscow's incredible and jessica jones. I love the idea of. I don't know why it's it's one which hausky but i love the idea of original crater coming back to a franchise that actually changed cinema. The first matrix is one question for you though so so. I think you use the word retroactively we're. We're talking a lot about ret cons lately but we were talking about something even before the show started that i think might be important to point out here when you say you know do things retroactively ret con whatnot. You're not talking about necessarily just like wiping the slate clean and saying this never happened. You're talking about adding it <unk> adding to it enhancing it. I haven't watched them in years. I've watched the first one planning but the second to there's an entire sequence if i remember correctly with the architect where there's a bunch of nieto's what easier franchise to fix than one where there's that many reality is easier. It's a movie about coding recode. The damn matrix is right there. So all you needed was the people that want it and the technology to catch up to make it different enough to make it worth making and the talent and we got all that in this announcement one of my very favorite things in this announcement is a quote and it says many of the ideas lilly and i explored twenty years ago about our reality are or even more relevant net lake more relevant now. That is the key terms phrase whatever that suggests that this franchise is worth bringing back. I could tell your super into into whatever <hes> was pitching this now well. It's just something i'm really passionate this year in general and storytelling is all the use of parallel realities alternate timelines justice that is also in any property and immediate fixture problem like it's not annoying. It's interesting it's exciting and and this is a- an ideal property to do that with you have to you we also have seen so with halloween. You can go that didn't happen and people will be okay with it. It's totally fine but by incorporating these sort of parallel words or re recoding as you said you don't have to do that you can satisfy both realities without pissing off a fair legion of fans who probably would be like what we saw that happen. It's real may chase recorded voted well. The thing is we say glitch in the matrix in everyday vernacular expression yeah a glitch in the matrix console all three and four we can actually go back and have a deja vu black cat experience and that's exciting and canneries doesn't age. It's very convenient. I that was one of the the biggest things about the story just seeing that the two of them are back but also we only get one which hausky this time which i find very interesting just curious. What do you guys make of that. I mean it is an interesting scenario that you hope is not in any way negative. The fact that lily was mentioned in the press release speaks well and the fact that they've worked together for like forty years see. We looked quite peacefully. I maybe lillies busy. Maybe she feels done with the story. You know there's a lot lot of possible reasons for that but it's it's interesting from a creative perspective if if that is solely lana on her own that i'm curious to see okay how the world might feel different when it's just one mind sort of creating this time around what's interesting to me is is that in conjunction with how many incredible creators came out of the matrix as we have like the john wick team and so many people that we now have directing their own work whether or not they come back to be like first a._d. Or any sort of second unit what the assemblage blue-chip the matrix is because we only have one which hausky instead of the pair so i'm really curious what the movie feels like and we'll be able to tell it's one of them instead of the pair of them because we've only seen them work together to my knowledge. I don't think i've ever seen a single hausky film. I think you're right. I i did like tried to double. Check really fascinating. There's always i'm <music>. I'm an apologist for a lot of their people. Don't like like i'm a big fan of what was the one about the the true through tom hanks. I liked that movie. I the credits of cloud atlas. They reveal who everybody played. Yeah i mean look. I like all of their movies yeah right up on the second for jupiter island because i love that speed racer summons emile hirsch whenever speed racer sir is trending. Emile hirsch was like yes. I'm here in tweets but like speed racer is one of those cult following. I think it came out six months too soon. The world wasn't quite ready for speed racer and the matrix four or is. I hope this is a movie that blows our minds because what they did with bullet time in ninety nine changed things. I can't wait to see what they can do. Twenty years later technology. I'm also curious are as has she says it's more relevant but also our relationship to technology has changed entirely in those decades and i'm very curious what the perspective on it is if it's still the the same. Is there any part of the movie where it's like now. We gotta plug back in the ass plugged in now. I know well. That's what's interesting is ninety nine i. I don't maybe i'm wrong but i don't think phones had internet like or if they did. It was rudimentary pretty average folks. I don't mind texting back marrow's still playing snake on nokia that point and you're doing like corey keyboard texting yeah. I was eleven so i don't remember who had i didn't have internet so what we are now. Now is such a different animal than what that movie represented them but you can watch the matrix now and it doesn't feel old yeah when you watch the matrix the first one it doesn't feel dated so i can't wait to see what they do with the world catching catching up to the reality of the already made. Maybe i'm just i'm afraid to see what they're about to foretell about the future sickly the way they did with the last one hundred forty nine the matrix man. That's a very fair concern very very. I want to know but i'm not sure if i want a fair concern that speaks to how rich this opportunity entity is because it's very exciting because we talk about you know reboot sequels franchises continuing you know twenty years after the last movie came out you name it and we're always like well you repeating something like does this just seems like a really again rich opportunity to continue a popular franchise where you're basically justifying it in the pillars of the franchise itself so i'm pumped and for me. It doesn't doesn't feel like where we have like. Indiana jones nineteen where they're like inventing a new story. The matrix said the video game the animatrix and the two sequels this rich world. They've already built up that they probably had other ideas for or and had ideas for the last twenty. Here's a here's a question from the live chat briefly from who rang who's writing. What does what does it mean for michael jordan. He was mentioned to star matrix matrix reboot. Maybe plays morpheus as son but really quickly before you guys even answer that it was making me think <hes> oddly enough off. I am more into the idea of another matrix movie with keanu coming back with a movie basically being pitched as matrix four rather than getting what we were originally talking about about you know just prequels and different offshoots as much as i like michael jordan i kind of hope that that is done and it's gone and they just move move forward as we were just discussing here. I mean i might be remembering incorrectly but i believe that had a different writer attached they did yeah sounds like a pretty the different project i have no problem whatsoever with michael jordan being in this movie because he's phenomenal and that would be great casting if they want to keep that one little nugget of that project alive. I do please yeah but it sounds that they're pretty separate at least from what the reports read like yeah to me. This is a separate property but if he's on the radar is on the radar so then it's a good thing and it's warner brothers so michael. Jordan is very much on their radar so it's a great opportunity to clarify. I'll take michael jordan anything. It's just when i first read the read the the news or a rumor at that point that that's what they were exploring. I'm like okay but then i hear something like what we're talking about right now and that's the hook. That's how you get me back in. I agree i. I don't think a reboot released spoke to me but hearing the story evolved from an original creator really speaks to the original team for the team sending

I think it's fairly okay to say, as I've mentioned, many times that you can note the movie is unnecessary, but also very excited for it. Because at this point I'm more excited for lying than I am.
