1. How did you like the new MATRIX? OK, I know it is an special effects extravaganza but I was just wondering if anyone else felt there was a little something lacking. I got the feeling it is just a bridge to the third episode which is going to rock. That reminds me to tell you to wait till the credits are all done to see the promo for third episode.

    I didn't care for the first so I doubt I'll go see the second. Maybe when it goes on DVD.

    I hate to go to the movie theatre but for this one I may make an exception.

    Darn! I didn't stay for the trailers for the third movie. I wish I would have read this thread before I went tonite.

    I would have to agree. There was a little something lacking from the movie. I suppose its like Episode One of Star Wars...just a transition movie, an explanation if you will. Learning who Neo is, and what the "Zion" and Oracle are. Yadda, Yadda, Yadda.

    Nonetheless, I had no idea I was in that theatre for 2 1/2 hours. It was interesting to say the least. Will he make it or won't he make it???

    I've said too much! I'll take the blue pill please!

    I always am talking about going to SCI FI movie with my siblings or my kids or even my mom. The reason I never mention my hubby is that he has no use what so ever for SCI FI. He will occasionally go see a different type of film with me. The last time we went we saw a charming little film called Drumline.

    Jay Leno did a parody of Matrix Reloaded last night, it was really quite entertaining.

    Saw Matrix yesterday - I enjoyed it but it has to be a really BAD SF film for me to hate it. I will wait for the third installment. PS I like X-Men 2 as well but there was not enough of Hugh Jackman shirtless!

    gwemnith, I saw something about Hugh Jackson hosting a show or something but now I can't remember where or when. I was watching X-Men number one(I loved it) on tv the other night. It was that scene where Hugh's character is fleeing barefoot down the hall after waking in the school. He reaches up and rips the electrodes off his bare chest. For a second I could see those red rings on his skin that really fair people get from the adhesive. I said to myself, "why lookie there, the indestructable man has sensitive skin". Yummie!

    We saw the opening show. My husband absolutely loved the original Matrix. Personally, I thought this one was crap. He was let down by it too.

    I liked the original Matrix, but this one...I'm not sure. I went on a fri nite when there were lots of teens, so there were lots of distractions in the theatre. People talking, getting up and walking in and out, etc. I think I woud have to see it a 2nd time to really understand what was going on in the movie. But I have to say that I HATED the ending!
