    I just saw the new matrix movie, Matrix Reloaded, and i was kind of dissapointed. Its definatly not as good as the first one, although it didnt completley suck. It just seems sort of fake. I dont want to give anything away. I also hated that it didnt end.

    Its the middle part of a trilogy, the ending comes out next fall.

    That way it would be impossible to give away the ending.

    I saw it today. I won't give anything away, but I will say this:

    1. It's WAY over the top. Holy cow.

    2. I was dissapointed that Neo didn't reunite with the Wild Stallions. Dude, they rocked.

    3. Be prepared to be pissed that you don't have a time travelling phone booth to fastforward your ass to November so you can see the next one sooner.
     
  9. I saw the movie last night. I will see it again. Many times.

    Bad- They put too many special effects in this one. It made the movie seem so busy. it was like, look that You never have any time to reflect on what just happened except for the one and a half hour long sex scene that was not needed. The movie had tooo much information in it for one movie. It's gonna feel like mission impossible 1. You will say this after the movie: "That kicked ass! but what the hell just happened?"


    Note to all. Stay for credits. They are long but there is a matrix 3 preview!!!

    Yeah, what was up with that sex scene? Note to all: sex scene is a good time to go to the bathroom or get a coke. Trust me, it's so long, you won't miss anything.

    Well I haven't seen it yet (tomorrow) but I must say that I can't think of ANY second movie of a planned trio that DOES really end. Think about it...Back to the Future 2, Empire Strikes Back, The Two Towers... I'm sure that every one that I can think of that's part of a continuing trilogy is like that. People said the same thing about Empire Strikes Back when it came out.

  12. I don't know what some of you guys were talking about. I thought the movie was incredible. Sure it was heavy on the visual effects, but the visual effects were awsome!!
     
  13. when you no that there is another movie coming out how can you be dissapointed.

    I mean LOTR ends where it does but everyone knows there will be another one but that is ok. Yet it is common knowledge that there is a third movie.

    speaking of which i would like an expansion of the LOTR story as opposed to reading the prequel 'the silmarillion'

  14. 99% of the time sequels arent as good as the original, usually the people realize what they did wrong with the second and change it for the third. so the third is worse then the first, but better than the second so it seems like a good movie, but nothing beats the first. this is true for almost all movies like this.
     
  15. yo todd this i just my opinion but i thought LOTR 2 was a much better movie thatn the first and the third could only be better if they show the final batltle and the city of gondor lives up to my expectation.

    In the case of second movies being of a infereior quality to the original movie i must cite terminator 2 which was eons in front of T1. Which leads me to the observation that T3 will have to be the best movie ina long time to surpassT2.

    No, just really lame philosophy.
     
  17. Correct spelling.

    Is Death still doing his solo bass act?

    :D

    Seeing the movie on Tuesday. Will take the advise, and stick around for the credits.

    Rock on

    Heehee, we're grammar nazis even when we are spelling things incorrectly on purpose.:D

  19. It was good, I plan on seeing it a second time to try and catch what I missed.

    I have a question, when the "key maker" was introduced, alot of the audience laughed and cheered a bit. Was there some inside joke that I missed?
