Okay, just got back from watching the Matrix. I have only one thing to say…


Seriously, don’t listen to the negative hype. Just suspend your disbelief a little bit (as you would any sci-fi flick), and go see it! I’ll see it again, no doubt. Sure, there are a couple of unanswered things, but all in all, definitely a finale worth every moment. Go. Now.

    I agree. Most of the things that people complained about not being explained seemed to be more that they didn’t understand either the first 2 movies, or were expecting a clear-cut resolution to the plot.

    Great flick 🙂

    I haven’t seen The Matrix myself, am about to see it shortly though (no matter what the critics say… duh I missed The Matrix part I in the cinema, so I prevented missing Matrix:Reloaded, and I’m DEFINITELY not going to miss Matrix:Revolutions).

    The cinema in my home town is sold out for Fri-Sun both this weekend and the one that follows, so I probably will have to go during a weekday. Not giving much of a possibility to hang around some afterwards, but oh well.

    As for Matrix:Reloaded, I was most of all impressed by the bit where they look out over the machine room. Impressive. Although the fight between Neo and Agent Smith and Agent Smith and Agent Smith and Agent Smith and (…) also left a lasting impression. One remarkable part also was the bit where they announce the break. Mostly my theatre puts in a very ugly one, but The Matrix has one of its own. That was a great job done by them.

    What does it have to do with BeOS?

  4. Ryan says:

    In the second matrix trinity uses nmap, which will be portable to BeOS once the new kernel is built with better mmap and ports support.

    Or, maybe, this has to do with the same thing all movie news on the site has had to do with, and is unrelated to BeOS other than that it was posted by a member of the community.

    In other words, deal.

    I think mooooo already has a port of nmap working on BeOS, but I could be wrong.

    BeGroovy has had a film and movie category on it since it’s inception, 5 years now. We even used to run movie reviews previously. We don’t use it often, but we have done so in the past, did for this movie, and will continue to use it in the future.

    I watched Reloaded last night (in preperation for Revolutions), and I must say that I was more impressed the 2nd time I saw it than the first. Actually, its a lot better, I’d even go as far as saying that its better than the original, since there are soooo many elements to it, that you can keep going back to catch them all.

    I have a feeling the same will happen to Revolutions – initially, we may be disappointed, but after multiple viewings (DVD), we will enjoy it more and more, until it grows on us, then we’ll love it to death…

    I’m waiting for the box set =) Not intending to buy them one by one.

    If you really want to see what the Matrix is, take a look at this (Flash):

  9. Ryan says:

    Dude, jean-marc, I have read a lot of books about the meat trade (fast food nation jumps to mind) and sympathize… in fact, I went vegetarian for a year until I sorted out my thinking on it. Despite the fact that it is a real problem, this is not the place. Your post is off topic and simply an attempt to hijack a thread to promote your own agenda. Don’t spam us again.

  10. Deej says:

    Ryan, I don’t think after that Seattle posting way way back, you can tell anyone this is not the place. 😉 Don’t tell me what I can or can’t do with _my_ ship after that speach of yours! 😛

    I thought it was sorta cute, if not enlightening in a very strange way, flash strip. Sorta funny, sorta scary. But on topic enough with a Matrix movie thread on a BeOS site. 😛

    /me wonders if my steak for dinner is ready. Better not be overcooked! 😛


  11. Ryan says:

    Deej? What are you talking about? I didn’t tell you not to post this. I am for movie reviews. Hell, I added the category. I was posting in reply to jean-marc above me, who posted a spam link to a matrix parody with the political agenda of meat industry reform.

    Reread, and chill dude. You know me. I ain’t no hypocrite. 🙂

  12. jean-marc says:

    Sorry but i don’t consider my post as spam, it was just a link to a parody even though it’s well done militarism against meat industry..i don’t see what’s wrong with that.
    If we can’t have ‘fun’ on BeGroovy’s forum i’ll find another place.
    I’am no so off topic than a movie thread under a BeOS website 🙂
    See ya

    So, back on topic (as in Matrix, not BeOS)…

    Saw revolutions last night – thought it was pretty good. Obviously not as good as the first, but they at least didn’t have too much of the attempted-explanation crap that was in reloaded.

    Some very corny dialogue – especially the parts where people have sustained some really serious injuries, and are yet still able to take part in hushed conversations about life, the universe and everything.

    Who decided that “some things never change, and some things do” was a really profound line? I must have heard that about 5 times in the last 2 movies.

    And I guess the door is still open for yet another sequel.
