Huh. [In reply to] Can't Post

His number 20 pick is William Gibson - writer of Johnny Mnemonic and the inspiration for the dreck of a movie that starred Keanu. Now it makes sense why Keanu took that one on.

Also, Keanu has good taste in books. Tongue

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Love it [In reply to] Can't Post

The matrix and bill and teds are among my all-time favorite movies. But not held as highly as LOTR.

“I am in fact a Hobbit (in all but size). I like gardens, trees and unmechanized farmlands; I smoke a pipe, and like good plain food (unrefrigerated), but detest French cooking; I like, and even dare to wear in these dull days, ornamental waistcoats. I am fond of mushrooms (out of a field); have a very simple sense of humour (which even my appreciative critics find tiresome); I go to bed late and get up late.”

I can't stand his "acting" [In reply to] Can't Post

but I respect him as a person due to the reports I've heard of his personal stands for other actors and crew on his films. This reading list gives me additional respect for him as a person.
