Denial Runs Through My Backyard

We've decided to pretend they never made two asstastic sequels to The Matrix.

Ahem.

Boy, The Matrix was a good, standalone, completely un-followed-up-on-by-greedy-bastards movie, wasn't it?

I think it's going well.

Good plan.

I kind of regret buying the second one on DVD. I wanted to watch it more because I was sure that, like the first movie, there were tons of things I was missing that would add a deeper meaning. I was wrong. Now I have 2/3 of a trilogy and only the first one was really worth owning. The anal-retentive movie geek in me is going to feel obligated to pick up the last one. I'm going to try and hold out until the inevitable price drop to under $10 though.

I'm glad I'm not the only one.

In my circle of friends, we've resolved to never view the sequels that must not be named ever again.

We've also vowed to view the Matrix over and over until all memory of the, well those things, are purged from our memory.

There is no spoon.

Despite the sequels, I'm rather fond of half of the Animatrix shorts, and the What Is The Matrix? comics.

Funny. I feel the same way about Aliens ...

And, for that matter, Charlie's Angels.

Chalk us up to another set of idiots who bought the second on DVD -- hoping the third would make up for it and it would just be an empty sandwich filling. Funk dat. I don't even think I could pay under $10 for the not-so-grand finale to have "the set". Not when you can go to Krispy Kreme and feel all warm and fuzzy for the same price instead.

Why do people hate the sequels? I loved them both. (And for the record, it was originally conceived as a trilogy, they just put that bit of closure at the end of the first one in case it tanked) Corporate Mofo says it best about the second movie here: http://www.corporatemofo.com/stories/051803matrix.htm There is a LOT in the second two movies that most people didn't notice this time around, and I'm not sure why. They answered everything and people keep complaining about how they answered nothing. This really confuses me. People complained about the Architect, but he was a machine he was supposed to speak that way, and he explained a lot. What was the matter with these movies?

Sure the first one will always be top in my book, but the sequels addequately continued the metaphors and kicked serious butt in action. -Speaker

Right! (Except for when I see pictures of Monica Belluci's character.) :)

I didn't watch either of the non-existent sequels, and I still want to be Trinity when I grow up.
