The Matrix — Page 2

Didn't see The Matrix in it's release. I just didn't like the trailers at all. I wasn't buying the special effects and didn't like the thought of Neo (played by Keanu) as "the one".

It's funny that in the later movies (I don't remember hearing it that much for The Matrix) people then brought up Neo as being a "Jesus" like figure because I saw that in the original movie trailers. I thought to myself, "I just don't buy Keanu Reeves as being 'Jesus'". So I skipped out on the original theater release.

Skip a couple years ahead. Somehow I finally watched it on DVD and was completely blown away. I agree with MeBe, it's almost a perfect movie IMO. It's the only one I own on DVD.

I was really excited to see II and III in the movies and like the rest of you was greatly disappointed after it was all said and done. I really wanted to like them, and like the prequels made excuses for them. But looking back at them now I just don't like them that much. I find it really funny the brother's knocked the prequels because they relied too much on effects and not enough of story and character development when that's where the II & III films failed most at. There's a couple cool scenes in each (the freeway in II & the superman fight in III), but not enough to carry the films. So I only count the 1st one. And for the record I grade ep II and ep III above Matrix II & III.

Lol. What the hell did you think it was? I like the demonic red eyes, it sums up exactly how I feel about the ugly little bastards. Always staring, never blinking... shudder. Has anyone ever used this thing before me? I used to lurk here long before I registered, and I can't recall ever seeing it in use before.

Hmm, this could be the solution to fanediting a serious ROTJ. What if all the ewoks eyes were retroscoped to glow red while they are in battle? One minute: "Oh, what a cute little teddy bear"... and the next minute its eyes glow red and it shoot flames from its mouth! Instead of stormtroopers getting killed by little migit children inside gutted stuffed animals throwing rocks, we'll have these little demonic creatures running around throwing magical glowing orbs at the stormtroopers and burping flames at AT-STs. Whoa! With a little work, ROTJ could become a rival for ESB as the second best SW movie ever!!!! (That is of course after we figure out how to turn Jabba's palace into a massive disco joint, which would be sooooo much cooler than the Jazz club it is now. I mean, what kind of gangster owns a Jazz club??? It needs to be a disco or a techno, or a fancy high class resturant, never a jazz club... )

I didn't see the hat/cap, and with it's red eyes it looked like a troll or something.

What I did find very cool and what I didn't expect at all about number 3 is that they made peace.

looking at the trailer makes me want to rewatch the 1st one but I’ve watched it already a lot… or so I thought until I realise (thanks to the original trailer of 1999) the version I was watching was a bad remaster of the theatrical one with a weird green filter.
Since then I’ve made some research and found out there is 35mm scan called (The.Matrix 1999.35mm.1080p.Cinema.DTS.v2.0). apparently, it is as close as the original version and I really want to see it. the only website so far I could find to get it was myspleen.org but obviously, I don’t have access as in exchange I have nothing to offer^^’ and then someone told me to go to originaltrilogy.com and I might have an answer so here I am^^ I’m a simple guy who just wants to watch matrix in his most original version^^ If anyone knows where I could get it, it would be much appreciated thank you.
and sorry if requests is not authorized.
