Who else thinks Matrix 1 is just a great movie, and relatable to the changing world?
I loved that movie when it came out. The concept was mind-blowing to my 20-something self, and I saw it in theaters at least 6 times.
Then they came out with Reloaded, and good god what a letdown that was. I still haven't seen 3 and I probably never will.
We were blown away by the original. It’s a high-power action flick with a great sci-fi hook, amazing FX and the best UBG (ultimate bad guy) I’d seen in a movie in years. If they’d never made a sequel, it would be legendary. Each sequel tarnished its legacy further, IMO.
I found M1 pleasing. Revolutionary effects and concepts.
Sadly, studio meddling dumbed it down a bit, for instance Switches' role, and more importantly - the original premise was that humans were used as CPUs in the Matrix. They were forced to invent the ridiculous 'human battery' concept.
#1 was enjoyable.
Everything following it, for the series and seemingly for Reeves, has kinda sucked.
Yeah, the battery concept is ridiculous. The processing idea would have been much better, and the audience probably would have had no problem getting it but they assume we're all stupid. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I thought it was brilliant, but the sequels were dire.
I rewatched the 3 movies recently. The first is great. The other 2 parts are terrible.
I forgot the matrix even existed, but I think I enjoyed it when it came out
I think the battery concept makes sense, especially when the humans are in a power plant when Neo is unplugged.
Watched it last weekend, wanted to revisit it since I really liked it when it came out.
I fell asleep and my daughters (14 and 17) said Ready Player One was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better.
1 - Yes
2 - No
I like the whole Matrix series. Like most of these, I like them more now than I did when they first came out. Maybe my expectations relaxed a little.
But to me they are completely fantasy and in no way relate to anything about the real world. But they are fun and I love them.
