Now that all of the Matrix chapters have been released for the public to see, I'm wondering, which one sucked less, oops, I mean was the best? I say that the original was the greatest, it had so many unremarkable things in it that blew me away. The second two were good, but they just didn't get my attention the way that the first one did.

By reading the title I though this was a sex thread.

And also, NOOOO! IT WASN'T GOOD. I HATE THE MATRIX.

Well I'm certainly not hte biggest Matrix fan, the moives are fairly good but not as great as everyone makes them out to be.
I just saw The Martix: Lord of the Dragonballs I mean Revolution. It was considerable better than the the second film but if I had to choose I will go with the first film.

I'm a big fan of the The Matrix, but I wasn't keen on the sequels much.

I've only seen the first two, I think the first was the better of those.

For me it's definately got to be the first Matrix. I remember the first time I watched it, I was thinking about it all the next day, and then watched it again when I got back home. It had a really big impact on me, and blew me away. Both the sequals are definately good, and not as bad as they're often made out to be, in my opinion. But they seem to be lacking the special quality of the first. Perhaps the freshness, and suprise, which couldn't be re-captured.

They did however continue the storyline, showing us how much deeper the rabit hole went. Unfortuantely, it didn't turn out to be that much deeper. Despite this, I still very much enjoyed them both. Maybe they couldn't live up to the first, but that was going to be almost impossible anyway. I was happy to see some human emotion, and feeling, and not all just action, as amazing though the action was. I did get the feeling that both sequals had in part, been Hollwoodised, but luckily only tarnished, and not completely ruined. These are just my opinions though. The Matrix trilogy is one of my very favorite trilogies ever, along with the Terminator trilogy, and Back to the Future trilogy. But the first is in a class of it's own!  smile

What Otis said, except with more style, sophistication and panache!!  tongue  laff

I've liked every film I've seen in the cinema except twice when it was unavoidable (Domestic Disturbance and Bed of Roses, don't ask).

If Larry and Andy had made the whole trilogy in one go before all the hype and huge amounts of cash, then maybe it would have all been good, who knows?

Im a VERY BIG fan of the matrix! i have to admit that the first one is the best out of them all cause it told the story and it was an epic film!,  after the four or so wait for the 2nd and 3rd the secound movie was all out confusing but i think if you watch it a few times it is really good, 

but for the third this was the best movie ive seen in ages also the first movie to really open my eyes! cause of the sheer shock of what was going on the screen!,

so if i had to choses out of the three i would go for -

1- The Matrix Revolutions
2- Matrix
3- The Matrix Reloaded

Official? In that case, I'll bring this up here. Did anyone notice in the first Matrix, the name of the guy who comes to Neo and asks for that CD thing was Choi? That means that on the Closed Captioning, his line shows up as "Choi: Hallelujah." That's one letter away from "Choir: Hallelujah." Cool, huh?

...But I digress. 1st Matrix all the way. Then Revolutions right behind it, and Reloaded just barely trailing.

The next line from him is the really interesting one:

"You're my savior, man! My own personal Jesus Christ."

Because, you know, he is. But you already knew that.

The first Matrix was so out there, it took a second and third viewing to get a handle on what was happening in the story... Just amazing sci-fi filmaking!
Reloaded was great on action and added more sexy ladies to the mix!
Yet to see Revolution No. 9, er 3 -- but I'm guessing it's to the trilogy what 'Jedi' was to the original SW one.

Lord no, the Matrix was horrible. #2 was almost all sizzle and no steak. Hardly any of my questions from the first movie were answered and #2 only raised more!

And Neo sucks! Why is it that a computer program (agent smith) has more personality than him?? LOL.

The third one should have been called Morpheus and Neo's excellent adventure.

I so want that final shot of the city with the cool sunset and sky for my desktop, anyone know where to get a good quality one yet?
Preferably 1024x768 (I've checked the official site).

Edit: 1025? Twit.

I think that if all three films were watched for the first time one after the other, Revolutions would widely be considered the best. Don't get me wrong I love the original, but people are voting it the best because it was so groundbreaking at the time. It's not fair that the sequals should have to beat that. If you think about it once the main concept has been set up (the world is only virtual reality, "You are the ONE!"...) not much actualy happens in the original!
If you take away the impact on pop culture the first film had. And the overhyping of the sequals caused by the long wait, each part has an equal opertunity to be judged on it's own merits as a film. Viewed as a complete trilogy and not as "One groundbreaking first part, then two long delayed sequels" I think revolutions is the best part.


I think that makes sense? Did my point come across? Anyway, Revolutions gets my vote.

All three had thier slow moments, but the only thing i'm really dissapointed in is the...

All three had wicked sequences/FX, and i enojoyed them all immencely...

By Action/FX etc.
Reloaded
Revolutions
Orig.

By Storyline elements
Orig.
Revolutions
Reloaded

By Sound (And yes this does deserve its own category   tongue )
Reloaded
Revolutions
Orig.

It is worth pointing out that i didn't see the original at the flicks, but i'm pretty sure it would have been weaker comparitively

Overall
All equally good, each one had its own wicked bits and of course poor bits, but i think they were all immencely enjoyable.

Here's my two cents (ARV: 1/100 cent)


(no plotline spoilers, i just dont want to offend anyone)

01011001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01100001 01110010 01100101 00100000 01110000 01100001 01110011 01110011 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01110100 01101000 01110010 01101111 01110101 01100111 01101000 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100101 00100000 01000101 01110110 01100101 01101110 01110100 00100000 01001000 01101111 01110010 01101001 01111010 01101111 01101110 00101110

My opinions (in spoilers, just in case):


So I gotta go with the first.  Long after I'm sick of 2 & 3, I'll still be watching my DVD of The Matrix.

Um, are we going to use this thread, the Reloaded thread, or the "It Stinks!" thread? Because I don't want to spread my opinion out over three threads.

Okay, the first one was pretty good. An A. Reloaded had its faults, but wasn't as bad many made it out to be. Still, it was disappointly good. B-. And, just coming from Revolutions, I feel so let down. Peter Travis of Rolling Stone was right when he said "The Matrix [revolutions] sucks." D+

Okay, now that's out of the way. I really hope that this is the end of the Matrix series. No number 4, no number 5, no more. Each passing movie gets worse and worse. They should have just stopped with the first one and kept in pristine. But no...$$ had to rear its ugly head.

So I'll close this then, we don't need 500 and the poll option isn't so important.
