While I was frittering away my weekend with shopping and band practice,
POTD club sent out several interview links in addition to (as always) some great Keanu pictures...

B.L. Why do you think that these Matrix films are so popular?
K.R. Because they rock! (laughs)
B.L. I totally agree, but...
K.R. They totally rock, man. There is so much movie on the screen, there's ideas, there's kung fu, there's interesting relationships. I think that they are ethical, moral. The taste, the aesthetic, and how much movie is on the screen. I enjoy and respect and I feel that from the filmmakers. I think that they are fun, I think that they are provocative and I think cinematically they're unique. I think the acting and the relationships that you see in the films, the editing and the music, the style, the content is just really unique. They are great, get some popcorn sit down and watch the Matrix. You know what I mean, all of them. I think that the care that Larry and Andy Wachowski - the writers/directors - what they have put in these movies is just cool.
B.L. Now you are shooting Constantine.
K.R. Constantine rocks.
B.L. It's based on the comic hero Hellblazer, how cool is that?
K.R. It';s awesome. Now working with (director) Francis Lawrence, it's his first feature and I don't know, we are four weeks in and I'm working with Rachel Weisz and it's a great script, it's conceptual, it has great ideas and it's a fun character and great crew and hopefully people will like it. I am working right now, which is great. It's a great part and I hope it will turn out.
