The Matrix

Postby Justice Hog » Sun Apr 11, 2004 10:08 am

Yesterday I just saw the final(???) chapter of the Matrix triology and I got to wonderin': of those who watched all three, which one do you like best?

I still have to watch the final episode...

I liked the first one better at the moment cause the second one left me hanging a bit - but I may change my mind based on if the third one resolves everything.

How was that for a political answer? ::grin::

By the way JH... still waiting for you to get a cameo on Law & Order ::chuckle::

i think it's difficult to recapture the 'holy crap' factor the first movie had, simply based on teh fact that the entire concept was so radical. going into the 2nd & 3th installments, the basic premise was already known (for the most part), so it's that much more difficult to wow the audience.

the first matrix was my fav, followed closely by the third (i'll pick it up this week), the the second. the animatrix was pretty neat too.

I'll wait to vote as well, as I like the others haven't seen the final episode.....looking forward to it, however. I understand it's very well done.

i've seen all three ...and the 3rd one gets away from the reason i loved the MATRIX in the 1st place.they are down loaded a total of twice i think.. so all the bullet time, kung fu and all the cool stuff like that are gone. it's all real time which gets old. some of the scenes are cool. i'am not saying you'll like it or not.i just feel it gets away from the reason everyone loved part 1 and 2...by the way part 2 is my favorite of the three.i like i said about the movie-to each his own.REDSKINZ4EVER!!!

I was disappointed in the 2nd one as well....too much "love story" for me. Is the 3rd worth seeing?

except for the train station. and club hel. and the super burly brawl. and the part in the oracles apartment.

okay, i do agree that much of the third movie was in the 'real' world, but it was pretty exciting stuff anyway. the attack on zion? niobe's driving? bane & neo? not too shabby.

(i hope i didn't ruin the movie for those who have not yet seen it)
