Keanu Reeves

No way. No way! Something a little bit different this time as Tom and Morgan look back at the career of an underrated geek hero of cinema: Mr Keanu Reeves.

We delve into the man himself, his history, his music, his not-so well received performances and in particular, these six iconic movies in Keanu’s filmography:

  • Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure / Bogus Journey
  • Point Break
  • Speed
  • The Matrix
  • Constantine
  • John Wick

Note: Tom wanted to discuss The Lake House (aka one of his top five favourite movies, honestly) at length, but Morgan wouldn’t let him.

Beer choice: Hogstar (Hogs Back Brewery)

Developments since broadcast:

  • Keanu has continued to make great movies as ever – including a third John Wick film, Toy Story 4 as Duke Caboom, and Bill and Ted 3!
  • We recorded a Bill and Ted special to celebrate Face the Music’s release in 2020, which featured an interview with co-writer Ed Solomon.
  • Keanu will star in a long-awaited fourth Matrix film, expected to be released in 2022.
  • Keanu also starred in the even more long-awaited video game Cyberpunk 2077 as Johnny Silverhand. Tom still hasn’t got it working yet.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
