I know there are a lot of folks with mixed (or negative) feelings about the
movie, but I have been looking forward to today's release of the Matrix
Reloaded on DVD since the date was announced... there are a couple of
questions about how things come together in relation to the first movie and the
upcoming conclusion of the trilogy that it will be fun to try and work on, as
well as general Matrix goodness to be explored.
As for Star Wars, I have really mixed feelings. While I really like some of the action scenes, epic battles and special effects in EpII, the characters absolutely SUCK! For one thing, they can't act (or Lucas won't let them).
I've come to the conclusion that it must have been Lucas' direction... For most of these folks (excepting the little Anakin punk from the first one) are accomplished actors...
