Is better than the second even being almost completely devoid of a storyline.
is on at ten so there is no reason whatsoever to watch this travesty of a film.
when i was about 12 and thought of nothing else but football...i was obsessed with this movie. the part where pele does his over head kick....i used to rewind and get the hairs standing up on the back of my neck.
watching it these days i realise it isnt as good as i thought
because im curious to see if it is better without all the hype. so far, i'm being proved right.
make it better than the others.
stomp stomp stomp. its going to end brutally soon though.
link out of Matrix Revo is the black dude out Lost.
I see Link I make bad Zelda jokes, another reason why this film should be outlawed.
i was suprised.
as i saw lost series one yes.
along with all the other shows that people out of lost have been in, there is a few.
trinity got impaled.
what is wrong??
hmm maybe the fucking spike she has sticking through her abdomen.
keanu reeves, not the finest hour of acting skills.
i love the fact that she has managed to talk for another 3 minutes with a big pole in her.
Managed to talk for many years after having a big pole go through his head, it's a shame he bacame a grumpy bastard.
You can have the job of vetting my posts if you want, I'll give you 5 rich teas an hour.
5 rich teas yeah!!
if you do then you better start spelling 'your' right, you hipster schmuck.
bourbon biscuits instead?
Due to the higher quality of Bourbons, an offer of three Bourbons an hour is deemed acceptable.
does it come with tea for dunking?
i want a cup of tea and a biscuit now, mmm.
will be rewaarded as a bonus for good work.
you should have more than one biscuit with your tea.
i just put biscuit, singular, so i didn't come across as too greedy. but we all know i am going to have about 5.
and an entire chocolate bar to melt with it. trust me.
in a 'leave your brain in the fishtank' kind of way.
keanu reeves will never need a wash again after this scene.
is fucking mint.i enjoyed revelutions but reloaded was god awful. first was ace aswell.
had the really cool spectre twins though.
last scene of revolutions beats the whole of reloaded.
most of the credits from films when they show them. it's really annoying.
but ITV putting the news in the middle killed all the tension for me. bastards.
or at least his critical faculties.
in other news, i really love tequila and beer.
BZZZT! BZZZT! FAILURE! FAILURE!
it's like the Wachowski brothers completely forgot what made the first film so good. I do like parts of the second one though, the 30 minute segment in the middle from when they find the keymaker to when Neo saves them off of the top of the crashing truck is immense. There are some really ropey effects in the final two though (particularly the second one), which is a shame considering how much time they had to finish it.
in the middle of the second one. I can't think of anything of worth in the third.
they forgot or misunderstood what it was that everyone liked about the first film - clue, it wasn't the pseudo philosophical nonsense
about the first one?
All the whooshing guns and stuff
The hanging in the air fighting, cause then it was kind of new and exciting
mixed with small sections of philosophy, which didn't really make that much sense in the first place. The action and fight-scenes in the first film were groundbreaking and haven't really been bettered since. By the third film they'd almost completely dispensed with it.
everyone have also slated them if they'd just done the same thing three times over?
don't get me wrong, i don't think Reloaded / Revolutions are works of genius, but I also don't think they deserve the constant slating they get. but maybe that's because i enjoy all the "mumbo jumbo".
they spent too much time in the real world/zion and focused on too many new characters that were badly written, badly acted and I don't think added anything to the films.
You're right in that they would have been criticised for just rehashing the first film, but it would have been better if they left it as one film.
they hadn't really given too much thought about it actually being a trilogy until the first one was such a success. Then they had to rush out two scripts to try and get both films shot and released within a few years.
part of me thinks that their mistake was doing it as a 2-parter, rather than two seperate films. the way they did it totally screws the pacing of both of them.
worst bit was, it wasn't even rushed. the two films came out 4 years after the first one (i think?).
it seemed like they had spent so long on it that it really should have been technically perfect. That's what led me to think that they really hadn't got any further story planned after the first film became a success, thus rushing two film scripts then rushing them into production for an 18 month shoot (I think that's how long the shoot was).
a lot of the CGI with people in was pretty poor - the Neo / lots'n'lots of Smiths scene in Reloaded was pretty bad in places.
because it was released in the year 1999 when everyone was all apprehensive about the millenium "bug" and offered people a philosophical look at life without them realising it.
Then in reloaded, the architect sorts out the men from the boys, as it were....
i took it to mean that as "Neo" is a system anomaly that repeats at intervals, as long as there is a Matrix there will be a Neo.
it was still bad, especially the script
and was it just me, or was agent smith a bit camp and over dramatic towards the end?
the sequel has already started has it not? The Matrix Online?
Its a game where all can choose to be in the matrix or not, having your own adventures in the matrix environment following on from the precendent that neo set in revolutions.
"what about the others that want out?"
"obviously they will be freed"
dunno how far they've got with it tho
