    Official Matrix Reloaded Thread

    Saw it opening night then saw it twice more.
    Absolutely loved it. I thought the fight scenes were terrific, the music during the fight scenes was very adrennnaline pumping.

    My fav fight scene was the one in the Chateu( that really white place). Loved the highway scene as well.

    The plot was hard to read but I'm sure everything will come together in the next one "Revolutions". After all, the movie isn't done until the next one is released. They actually combine and make a 5 hour long sequel to the first one.

    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I didn't think it sucked, but it didn't rock my world (or many people's).

    Like I said (and was persecuted for), the movie won't even do $300 mill, let alone $400. It's at about $260 or so, pulling in $5M a week and dropping. Next week, it'll drop to $2.5M, and so on, and so on.....

    That's not a stab at the movie, nor is it a reflection of how "good" the movie was (I gave it a good score, a B-), but it absolutely proves what I said (and was persecuted for) when I stated it wouldn't do $300M due to word-of-mouth. That's quite a contradictory prediction to what the media and the hardcore fans were predicting. Hype, hype, hype.

    Some people get so sensitive.......

    Anyway, what's important is that like the first one, it has a sizeable cult following that really enjoys the h*ll out of it.

    And they could care less what anyone thinks. Nor should they.

    .........turning the corner (slightly)......

    I'll be curious to see how the Hulk does.

    Actually, I'll be curious to see if it's any good, regardless of what other people think.

    But I'll also be curious to see how "word-of-mouth" works for that film, because unless I live in a cave, the film sort of already has a slightly "negative" stigma attached to it due to the cartoon-ish look of the commercials and internet previews.

    I think people will be forgiving (I won't use the word 'impressed') when they see him on film. Film is ALWAYS considerably less bright, sharper, and less "shiny" than television or computer monitors, which are the absolute WORST place to view movies with CGI.

    We'll see. From what I've heard from multiple sources, the CGI Hulk is "tolerable", the story is great, the actors are really good, and it's a fun film.

    Speaking of Martial Arts films.....am I the only guy that rented Kung-Pow : Enter the Fist, and enjoyed the sh*t out of it?
