Want to know the best Keanu Reeves movies?  How about the worst Keanu Reeves movies?  Curious about Keanu Reeves’ box office grosses or which Keanu Reeves movie picked up the most Oscar® nominations? Need to know which Keanu Reeves movie got the best reviews from critics and audiences and which got the worst? Well you have come to the right place….because we have all of that information.

Since we started up this website in March of 2015 we have tried to publish a new movie page every three or four days….rotating between classic performers and current performers.  Well Monday… we published a page on Anthony Perkins so it was time to do a current performer.  So I looked in my request notebook and saw many classic performers but only Elizabeth Banks in the current performer request list.  Well as I was trying to decide if I should do a Banks page or not….we got word that the matriarch of my wife’s family was not doing so well and an emergency trip to Alabama was required this weekend.  So while frantically packing for our 1600 mile weekend trip I decided I would have to pick somebody that I already had most of their movies in my database already.  A quick check showed that I already had 37 of Keanu Reeves’ movies in my database.  So with that knowledge…we are ready for our next movie page…..sorry Elizabeth Banks….at this time we are looking at the movie career of Keanu Reeves.
