Thinking to see Matrix Revolutions?


So...my friend Todd called me and asked me to go see it with him and some of his friends, so I said sure *shrug* I had nothing better to do. I was just planning to clean my house, but let's think about that...movie or cleaning house? Riiiggghhhttt...

First off...I wanted to note some key points in chronological order (yeah, I was taking notes, so sue me):
  • That girl Satti was a little creepy. I am not sure if she was over-acting or if that is how it was supposed to go.
  • I found what Satti's father said quite interesting, about love. Neo pointed out to him that he is merely an application, how can he feel when love is a human emotion. Satti's father replied, "What matters is the connection". Now doesn't that just make you feel good? ;) That quote was quite interesting and caused me to think quite a bit, but more on that in a later entry perhaps
  • A little irritating factor...Neo moves to carry the little girl's bag...but when the stupid Trainman pushed him off the train, they left behind that one bag. Any symbolic meaning? Probably not, simply an error on the producers part.
  • When Trinity, Morpheus, and the Oracle's protector were fighting, I had a hard time respecting them since their shots were so horrible...
  • The slow motion between Trinity and Neo felt highly unncessary, quite corny actually...
  • I liked the music
  • Love seems to be the on-going theme through-out the movie...basically a "love conquers all" theme
  • "No one can see beyond their choice", the Oracle said...how true...as hard as you try...she also said, "everything that has a beginning has an end." How cliche...and yet, it fails to tie in with the whole love theme. One would believe, or like to anyhow (I do) that love is a never-ending circle, particularly the type of love that Neo and Trinity supposedly share.
  • A lot of reference to Yin and Yang at this point...the Source versus the Oracle, Neo versus Smith
  • OMG...ok...Neo was such a dumbass when he couldn't figure out that Baine was one of Smith's clones...*shake head*
  • Lots of cliches...
  • Ahh...Trinity's death, finally. Who didn't see this coming? Honestly folks...some guys in front of me kept hoping she would die. I was kind of hoping that myself. Perhaps my lack of true love has made me slightly an unbeliever in the "strength" of love. Or perhaps...it is more so because it is Hollywood who is attempting to showcase this type of love.
  • WHAT THE FUCK??? Neo the Negotiator? Right...
  • A little too melodramatic for me
  • Once again, I dig the music
  • Oh look...they are thinking happy thoughts because they can fly

Main reason this whole thing was such a disappointment for me? Well let me explain. In "The Matrix", the movie was based solely around one of the most famous principles of René Descartes, "I think...therefore I am". That was fabulous, I was able to completely dissect the movie, and while other simply oohed and ahhed over the wonderful special effects, I walked out with a great sense of wonder. Why? Because the movie gave me a whole other dimensional aspect of Descartes theory, it gave me almost a sense where I was able to literally live vicariously through the actors.

The second movie...was ok...better than the 3rd anyway. However, my biggest dislike about it is that it totally disagreed with the 1st movie. *shake head* It went AGAINST Descartes theory. I think at that point, the movie completely lost its substance and became nothing more then some little action flick for teenagers. Ugh...anyway...enough about that...

I was trying to find where I wrote about the second movie, I remember I made some points. However, I of course, have poor subject titles and was unable to find it. I did however run across this. I am really glad I have my journal now. Any guilt or empathy I may have felt has altogether been banished. Anyhow...seeing that it is about 1:46AM...I think I should go to bed. :)

On an ending note...the 3rd one could seriously kiss my ass. The only joy was the company I had with me, so thanks Todd and Brian. The story-line was everywhere, it was erratic, and on top of that, the ending was just too tidy and it was not put together well. *shrug* That's my opinion of course. However, I will say that the special effects were, as usual, superb. Some part of it were incredibly, "*roll your eyes*, OMG, you've got to be kidding me", but aside from that...same-o, same-o. The ending result? The movie didn't make me feeling anything, but exhausted because I walked out of there at 1ish...dropped off Todd and Brian and went on my merry way home. *shake head* Argh...

night night...hope y'all enjoyed my exceprt from the movie...

SERIOUSLY!!! That's what I was thinking...it was like 5? GROSS...just to tell him, "You taught me so much...blah blah blah...love...blah blah blah...love...blah blah blah you brought me back once, can't bring me back this time...blah blah blah...love" UGH, I'm a girl and that was too much for even me!

You would have been better off developing a matrix for apartment cleaning!
