WHOA E01: Brotherhood and Exposed
This week on WHOA: A Most EXCELLENT Keanu Reeves podcast, comedian Anthony Thornton joins Krissy to discuss The Brotherhood of Justice and Exposed. The best bad movie about “Brotherhood” and the worst bad movie about exposing things.
We are absolutely going to spoil all the details of a movie you’ve had 30 years to watch, as well as a movie you are better off not watching. Consider yourself alerted.
Episode 1 Features
The Brotherhood of Justice. A 1986 made-for-TV movie starring Keanu Reeves, Lori Loughlin and Kiefer Southerland. It tells the story of a bunch of rich kids fed up with the vandalism and drug dealing that plague their school. They do the only thing a bunch of fed up rich kids can do in that situation—start a gang of vigilantes! Sorry, a “brotherhood” of vigilantes. This movie is most triumphant in its terribleness. It is available to stream on Amazon and I recommend it highly.
We talk a bit about the poster image, so here that is for your viewing pleasure…the one rouge bang was really a thing in the ’80s.
In Episode 1 we also cover
Exposed. A 2016 “Crime Drama Mystery” starring Keanu Reeves, Ana de Armas and Mira Sorvino. It is the story of a cop unraveling a mystery, maybe? It might also be the story of a young woman plagued by visions of angels? Trust me, it is hard to say what the story is. I highly do NOT recommend that anyones see this movie under any circumstances. However, if you don’t want to take my word for it, Exposed is also available to rent on Amazon.
What’s Up Next
Episode 2 is coming at you on June 15th, 2016. We are sticking with 1986 with The River’s Edge, paired up with 2015 Eli Roth “horror” movie Knock Knock. In the River’s Edge, Keanu is an apathetic kid from the wrong side of the tracks who finds himself murder, and not too worried about it. In Knock Knock, Keanu is an architect left behind by his family for the weekend…until two sexy women knock on the door and Keanu finds himself murdering, torturing, and kidnapping…and also not too worried about it?
Bonus Keanu. You are welcome.
This week I invite you to visit Vulture’s Guide to Keanu Reeves’s Facial Expressions. My particular favorites include Concern, Mild Consternation, Sadness-which spawned the magical Sad Keanu meme, Fear- which spawned the amazing Conspiracy Keanu meme, and of course, Lust. I highly recommend feasting your eyes on all of the Keanu Reeves facial expressions and do pay attention to where each falls on the Keanu-Meter.
