Each week on Cool Breeze Over the Mountains your hosts watch and discuss the intricacies of (almost) every film in the Keanu Reeves catalog, starting with his film debut in 1985 and moving to present day.
Introducing The Kurt Locker
The Kurt Locker is a podcast series where we'll watch and discuss the entire feature film catalog of Kurt Russell.
Bill & Ted Face the Music
Be excellent to each other, and party on dudes.
Between Two Ferns
Listen as your fearless hosts cordially disagree about and dissect the comedic stylings of Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell. Talk about what wrong Paul Rudd can do (hint: there is no wrong Paul Rudd can do) and ultimately try to answer the question: was this better as a web series or did the gamble to go to Netflix pay off?
Always Be My Maybe
On this episode with guest Lindsey Nelsen, we RUN THE GAMUT of topics, often times not actually sticking to the point, but that's why you're here, isn't it?
Toy Story 4
In this episode we go off on a tangent about Mad Max Fury Road, Andrew gets to utter the greatest sentence that perhaps exists on the whole of Wikipedia, a new Pop Quiz A*****e record is set, and we also explain why Forky is potentially the most relatable character Pixar has maybe ever created. Bonus: Whitney's Thoughts and Feelings™ on John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum!
John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (with Angelica Jade Bastién)
Is it possible that the architectural layout of The Continental is an intentional metaphor for the plot of this film? Maybe! Our very special guest and fellow Keanu Reeves Historian Angelica Jade Bastién joins us to discuss the importance of editing, one key difference that makes old movies better than new movies, and then proceeds to absolutely destroy Erich and Andrew during Pop Quiz, A*****e.

Start at the start
Absolutely delightful journey through the enormous and varied career of Keanu Reeves. Listen from the beginning. For some it will be a trip down memory lane... for others it will be an intro to overlooked winners like Man of Tai Chi, along with brutally honest and usually hilarious critiques of the losers, of which there are a handful (Knock Knock is a particularly good episode). And there’s trivia! Cool Breeze pod: it's a good time.
To be honest, I avoided this podcast like the plague due to an overwhelming gushing by the media to make Keanu some sort of personal savior. I resisted all of the shameless plugs that popped up on my twitter feed and Facebook, meeting them with a fierce passive aggressive scrolling.
Eventually and separately, I stumbled upon the fact that Keanu starred in a Paula Abdul music video in 1991 (Rush, Rush). Feeling shocked at this discovery and being called out on my ignorance, I was immediately intrigued and knew that I needed to, once again, succumb to Andrew’s wisdom in all-things-film.
In the first episode, I expected gushing. What I found was anything but. Each host (especially Whitney) delivers a raw, honest, hilarious reaction and approach to Keanu’s career as I imagine anyone would agree, it took a bit of time for the man to become the sensation he is today. Witty commentary will now, instead, fill each quiet “in between” moment as I play this podcast throughout my day. The best part? There is no need to rewatch any (less desired) Keanu movie as their film summation and story telling far exceeds expectations.
Highly recommend. In fact, if you haven’t listened to them yet, you’re missing out. You may even find yourself pining to rewatch Keanu’s less popular films just to get the full effect of this podcast’s clever insights and critiques.
Excellent Keanu Content
Do you like Keanu? Do you enjoy listening to clever folks talk about Keanu movies? Well then have I got the podcast for you! A really fun listen, feels like your sitting around with friends. Also, really appreciate their honesty when a movie isn’t up to snuff in all our opinions & even more so when I disagree. I can’t believe they’re nearing the end of Keanu’s filmography - hoping he’s back on a film set soon for more episodes.
