    Keanu has an Asian background.

    People always point that out, like it actually matters what ethnicity he is...it's obvious this isn't a period drama so I'm not sure why it would, lol

    Re: The Movie Thread! - Continuation

    I think the scenario is a little weird. I mean, it seems the movie starts in a non asian place but then keanu is taken to fight somewhere where the people, culture, the 46 warriors and antagonist are asian. They do say keanu is half asian or something and you are probably right about his background but overall the guy does not look asian at all. If ethnicity was not important then why bother specifically getting so many asian people for the movie cast? I think we should be past the point where movies are made where non asians are better asians than actual asians. I guess this does make more sense than katate kid doing kung fu though.

    If he's a half-breed, it would make sense for the hero to look different, even if it's not asian at all to you. Hawaiian people are mostly of half-japanese descendents, so no problem with me.

    Quote Quote:
    His mother was English and his father was a Hawaiian-born American of Native Hawaiian, English, Irish, Portuguese, and Chinese descent
    Don't see the complaint, aside from trying to mock Keanu. Big budged titles get big hollywood name, there is nothing to complaint about that, instead being happy to allow asian people to participate in a Hollywood production. Keanu isn't a better asian, he is he better part asian, part westerner, fit for the plot.

    Haven't realized Mako Mori is the antagonist, would like to hear her english voice some more, seemed so lacking during the Comic-Con panel for Pacific Rim, the german dub was a lot better Imo. edit: Seen some more interviews, seems pretty good for a japanese. hoho

    Hey it can't be worse than After Earth.

    he is lebanese actually. but still he sucks as an actor.


    Can someone message me an anime that's similar to d grayman or claymore or deathnote?

    Ive seen Deathnote, deadman wonderland, fairytale, shigurui, ao no exorcist, beelzebub, samurai champloo, code geass, devil may cry, Hakuouki, monster, blood plus, gantz. Basically, something with demons and gore.

    It actually doesn't matter what his ethnicity is... I don't particularly like him as an actor, that's all. Seems like he has no ability to say more than three sentences per scene or something... But maybe that will be his advantage playing in this movie given a language barrier? hehe.

    Eh... I know that he was born there, but that doesn't matter at all when the family was moving around the world like nomads. Neither Patricia Taylor nor Samuel Nowlin Reeves sound like they are descendents of Lebanon, and since I know a Lebanese family, I can asure you that he has no prominent lebanese features. but you got to bring out that remark anyway.

    I respect your opinions, but I will disregard them nevertheless, I like my Keanu Reeves the way he is, has gone through enough shit in his life already. Yes I'm biased.

    Here is a trailer to a new all-japanese[] movie with Ken Watanabe, dealing with the conflict of new vs old during the Meiji ishin. Without subs.



    And a Ronin 47 trailer review for those interested:

    He was born there. Just to clea this topic up, "His mother was English and his father was a Hawaiian-born American of Native Hawaiian, English, Irish, Portuguese, and Chinese descent". There.

    I'm not particularly fond of him as an actor, but he isn't performing Shakespeare either. He isn't a very dynamic performer and tends to be the same person in most roles. But that doesn't necessarily have to be a negative thing. He's been in a lot of good movies. It sort of reminds me of Kevin Costner.

    American Hustle- Looks interesting I just might watch it.


    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty-Looks promising can't to see it although I wonder if I should watch the original first.

    Good luck. \o Wasn't that bad though.

    I think I saw this movie with Charles, his brother, and their friend. The movie as a whole was irrelevant, considering the ending. :\ Not worth the time.


    I'm interested in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The title is so familiar, I think there's a book out? Must have read it for school years ago. Liked the trailer though, when it showed before Wolverine. Wolverine was a good film, but I enjoy seeing Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, like RDJ as Tony Stark. \o/

    It was a short story, and I believe Wikipedia because I recall now. We read it in class. How was the original movie?

    I just watched "Bronson" for the first time and Tom Hardy is f**king awesome in this one. I recommend it.
