Hadn't seen this in ages. Just saw it a little while ago and it's better than ever. Granted, I hadn't seen it since I was probably around my teens so now as a legitimate Adult, I suppose I have a greater understanding and appreciation for it.

I've never really seen any of the sequels though. Would you guys recommend them? Which is better?

I've never seen the sequels but I've heard nothing but bad reviews about them.

Reloaded is good up until a point, then it becomes incredibly convoluted.

Revolutions is terrible until the last 5 min.

If you're going to watch the original Matrix, then you might as well watch the other two.

All 3, simply awful.

Me and my friend were busting a gut laughing when we saw the first one in the theatre.

^ That's crazy. It's considered an absolute classic by most. You should see the first some time at least.

By the way, were the two sequels really made or released in the same year? If so, why? Don't think I recall that ever really happening before with sequels. Seems incredibly rushed to say the least. Is it possible the quality of the films to some extent suffered because of this factor?

yo.

Keanu Reeves' acting was god awful in the first one, god awful.

So bad that it took me out of anything the movie had to offer.

The fact that The Matrix is considered a classic by some goes to show how far movies ave fallen over the last 15 years.

They filmed both consecutively, some scenes at the same time. So they could push them out as fast as possible. And yes, when you rush sequels (and it's happened before, many times), the writing is rushed and if the writing is rushed, there's slim chance that the film will be good.

^ Some of the special effects and dramatic graphic enhancements that were shown in the first hadn't been done nor seen to that extent up until that point and for even that alone I would say one could argue it should and can be considered a classic or memorable.

Effects don't make a movie classic.

^ Outside of your disapproval of Mr. Reeves, the story itself and concept was pretty damn original one must say. The creativity as well combined with other elements made that film one of a kind, certainly unique.

Just watch the movie dude. Depends who you ask. It's kind of like an inception-like thing some say. You interpret it as you wish.

For a skinny white girl, I thought Trinity had quite a nice ass at times.

Also, as I said, haven't seen any of the sequels really yet, but is it true Miss Monica Bellucci is in em' & lots of cleavage is apparent?
