Matrix: Kill the Robots and junk
Posted by FredFredrickson on 11/08/03.

After watching Matrix Revolutions twice (That's right, I said it. TWICE), I have decided it was time to post my observation. What's that? Only one observation? Well.. maybe two.. but they're along the same lines.

My first observation is quite simple. Keanu makes a good looking Neo. Not a good talking neo... just a good looking neo. He's got the dark hair, the nice build, the mysteriously unaware gawk... He looks perfect for the part. I think the movies would have been thirty times better if neo had been a mute person who had to write everything on signs like Wile E. Coyote.

The second half of my observation was this:

Now I know what you're thinking, Keanu wasn't really just a big ball of energy on screen.. but did you ever notice, he just wouldn't die? He kept getting knocked down... and he'd stay down for a bit, then a few moments later he was back up and almost in good condition. Like a battery. Ever notice when your flashlight is dying if you turn it off for a few minutes and then turn it back on, it shines brightly again? It works with CD players too. Give them a few minutes, and the batteries will slowly recharge themselves.

Bad connection, I know. But you have to admit, my arguement has merit.

Basically, After the first matrix movie, each additional movie got worse and worse. I didn't especially like the second, and the third one was even worse. I think if all three movies had been played in one night, possibly I'd think differently. But being given a few months to a few years to think about what happens next gives you unrealistic expectations of the film makers. Because let's face it, your imagination can come up with some crazy stuff. When you finally go to see the movie, of course it'll fall short, but that's cause you've been anticipating something great for the past 6 months, and the anticipation has grown each day. Every day closer you get to it, the greater your imagination will make it to be... but when they finally turn 18, I'm sure the Olsen twins won't be quite as exciting as we all imagined them to be...
