Nice rant, GrOOve, I gotta hand it to you. But...
You're right grinch, it wasn't that bad of a movie, it was fucking horrible.
We are all entitled to are own opinions, and under no circumstances am I going to try to change yours. I enjoyed the movie to a certain extent. I didn't like it as much as the original, but I do think it was better than Reloaded.
Good for you.
Thanks for the compliment.
Here's where I'm going to really disagree with you. I wasn't expecting the original Matrix in a whole-new nutshell when I walked into my theatre, infact I was expecting something totally different. Given the ending in Reloaded I knew I was in for a ride more wild than anal sex with a 500 lb. Gorilla at the zoo.
I don't think you
understand. I obviously didn't put it in the right words, because I got the wrong idea across. When I walked into see Reloaded, the only other Matrix film I'd seen was the one in 1999, and I was expecting it to be very similar. After seeing Reloaded, however, I was completely prepared for a different story in Revolutions. Maybe that's why I enjoyed Revolutions more.
It's all about the plot and cinematography in Reloaded, I knew the second the movie (Reloaded) ended that Revolutions was going to be weirded out in the sense that the Wachowski Bros. had gotten so skewed in my conception of the first movie overall that the rest of the series was just going to be perhaps less fufilling than the original movie.
Well of course
a sequel isn't going to be as good as the original. Things are popular because they are
original. When you tack a sequel on to extend the original story line, it's never going to be as fullfilling or as exciting. I don't think that the Wachowski Bros. have had their conception "skewed". They had already written a plot for the whole saga, although I will agree that the second and third movies were vastly
different from the original.
I went at the midnight showing, and I'll tell you what - nobody fucking walked out. Did you not see Neo take on about 3 dozen Smiths with a metal pole?!?!
Nobody walked out of the theater in the showing I went to either. Not during the feature. I'm talking how afterwards
people left feeling somewhat disappointend that Reloaded wasn't exactly what they wanted to see in comparison to the original. Oh, and, as I said before, the only reason I bought the Reloaded DVD was for the scene with 3 dozen Smiths and the pole, and the freeway chase. Good stuff.
It's not like we're attempting to erase history here or purge the "controversial art out of Nazi Germany" or anything...some people like to hang on to what they enjoy, and for some fans, that's the original film. We're not denying their existence...I have no fucking clue where you got that from, but I, for one, am going to keep hanging on to my original feelings about the first film, and much less about the sequels.
I'm saying that people have expressed forgetting about the sequels and pretending that the original was the only Matrix film ever made. The way I see it, if you go by that standard, you're only missing out on the true meaning of the trilogy.
See beyond the fight scene...I see...I see...crap, followed by...more crap.
Yes, I will admit, the dialogue was a bit "cheesy" at times, but by that I meant I enjoy the movie for more than
the 50 million dollar fight scenes.
So then you'll be able to get confused time and time again, perhaps a little more each time after you watch it. That's awesome.
There are a lot of things the brothers brought up but - never explained. For example, why does the Oracle look different? In the movie, she says, "Some things stay the same, others change. I still don't recognize my face in the mirror." That's great, we know stuff changes, but why and how did she come out looking drastically different? Oh, that's right, we're just expected to take what they give us.
Everybody is going to have there separate opinions, and there's honestly no way you can change mine. I'm not going to come out and say Revolutions was, eh, "phenomenal", but I will say that I liked it better than the first sequel.
