The Matrix

Anybody else here like it? I've always loved the movies, then I read an article (more of an essay) about it and now I'm completely obsessed. There are so many tie-ins between all the characters and events and things. There are also theories of major conections between the movies and Christianity... but I won't go into detail about that (lol.... just kidding.... trying to lighten things up). Anyway, anybody else like the movies? If I can find it, I'll post the link to that essay.

Jeremy

The first one didn't do too much for me, the second one was awesome, and I was supposed to see the third one tonight but we couldn't get to the early show on time and Mike has to work in the morning

My opinion on the trilogy...

The first one was pretty cool. I figured it would be another "Jonny Nemonic" so I waited until it came out on video. I liked it a lot though.

The second one was cool too but too much of the same thing.... Slow motion wire fights and deep questions...

The third one was like a big dose of deja vu. A movie I had seen twice already with the same conversations and events/fight scenes between the same characters in exactly the same style. I was a bit disappointed. I just kept thinking "I know where this is going, so hurry up and get there..." Still a cool flick though.

There ya go.

In my oppinion, they're the best movies ever made. Especially if you take out the 3rd movie and pretend like it's just not out yet lol. The 3rd was such a let down... I wanted so many answers and they just didn't give them. But yeah, best movies ever... read the article, you'll understand why.

Krokadylian, yeah but the twins pissed me off. They fought so cheap and I was glad to see them "die"

OH, sorry about posting so much but.... I know it's long and I know it focuses on how he thinks it's basically a story about the book of Genesis... but just stick with it and you'll notice it's not all preachy and that the length won't matter because it'll drag you in (assuming you're interested in the movies)

...

I think the twins died on the bridge on the highway. Morpheus took out his sword and sliced the SUV and then it turned over and blew up. This is seconds after Trinity and that little asian dude jumped off on the bike.

Yeah... but they turned into their ghost form and were blown away... so it didn't exactly seem like they died. But I think they did.

That was a great part though... Morpheus owned that scene.

i JUST got home from seeing the third.. it was pretty good in my opinion. expected a little more, but still, im not one to complain..

and that club scene where they go talk to the frenchman... *wipes drool off keyboard*.. something about girls in vinyl and leather and guns. lol..

only major thing i didn't really like was all the superman flying and stuff..

I feel that if you do crack open a bible and do a over view of the christan Faith you will see alot of similare reprasentations and I mean from the first movie all the way till the end of the third but then again Star wars does the same.
I took the whole trilogy on a verry deep level I love the way they took the Dragon Ball Z fighting style and put it on the big screen.

I wont go in to deep explanation of the way I portrayd the trilogy
cause it just came out and I do not want to ruin the end for ppl.

But I will say that if pay close attention to the end of the
re-loaded when neo is talking to the contractor of the Matrix and then incorperat that last convo wit the last sceens of revolutions you will get all the answers you need to understand all 3 story lines.

The first one is one of my all time favs, but the second one was disappointing. This may sound shallow, but I wanted to see more guns...
