As yet another one of my favorite childhood actors gets older, I feel older. Today is the birthday of Keanu Reeves amd he is 47. Can you believe that? Ted is almost 50 years old! Neo is closer to half a century! Johnny Utah is almost retired! It's so weird to think that Keanu is that old, but he has been acting for almost 30 years. Unbelievable. Sometimes I think that he gets a bad rep because of his early work, but he has been in quite a few of my favorite movies over the years. So let's take a look at some of his best films.



Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

I think is may be one of Reeves more underrated films. He is overshadowed by great performances by Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins and of course Gary Oldman. I think Keanu plays an awesome Jonathan Harker in this movie though. One of my favorite vampire movies, based on the ultimate vampire novel.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989)

It's what jump started Keanu's career and got him the big roles. Plus is there a teenage guy out there that doesn't love this movie? Sure, it may not be his greatest work, but this movie is a classic.

The Devils Advocate (1997)

Man is this an awesome movie. Reeves plays a lawyer who basically helps keep bad people on the street. Little does he know, he is working for the Devil (Al Pacino). Plus there we get to see the smokin' hot Charlize Theron get a little naked. Always a plus.

The Replacements (2000)

You know, I have never heard anyone say a bad word about this movie. It is one that was totally off my radar when it came out, but now whenever it is on I am watching it. I love this movie, and not just Reeves, but the entire cast. If you haven't seen it, you should!

The Matrix (1999)

This is what made Keanu Reeves a household name. His role as Neo is one of the best of his career and "The Matrix" is one of the best movies of the last 20 years, if not all time. I think we can all agree that this is hands down Mr. Reeves best movie role of all time.
