    It's hard to believe it's been more than 20 years, since the first Matrix. It was such an amazing zeitgeist of the late 90's.
    I'm actually exited to see what they did with this movie. It's been a very long time since I got exited to see a movie.

    Yeah but they killed Neo off in the final movie and he's back so...
    You also have the issue of making an online game's story part of the canon. I watched the movies had no desire to play the online game.

    The trailer does not inspire confidence. Looks like a retelling of the first movie, uses the hero forgets who he is and has to remember trope and the original trilogy pretty much rounded out the story arc, I don't look forward to whatever convulsed BS they are going to use to explain how Neo is back, assuming they even bother going the convoluted BS route.

    The biggest issue though. The original trilogy was damn groundbreaking in its visuals and the tech they used to combine the fighting with the overall style of the movie. Not only does this not look like t has the same style as the original movies, what can this movie bring to the table that we haven't already seen in the intervening 20 years?

    It looks cheap.

    Sorry, not sorry.

    Not even gonna review it, especially since my brilliant analysis of 'The Man of Steel' was lost in the great forum hack of 2013, when several days of forums posts were lost...including my review. (this is also why I type in short one line sentences)

    Like this.

    BOT: Not using film cameras = bad mistake, and, I have never heard of your cinematographer(s) before.

    Yes it´s hard to believe so much time has passed.

    But i´m no excited by the movie, the trailer seems lame as hell, with several shots copied from the original, and with nothing new to show for...

    Didn´t they learn anything from the mistakes of Terminator´s sequels/reboots/whatever???

    Also someone has to tell Keanu that this is the Matrix, not John Wick 4...

    You clearly did not see the biggest get out of jail card ever put onto screen for the shortest period of time.

    "Based on the characters created by..."

    Based on. Based. This means one of two things: They have re-written the story of these characters, or, these characters are completely different.

    This also means: you cannot argue for or against something if one of two statements are proposed.

    One "It's nothing like the first three Matrix Movies"
    Two "The characters are not the same"

    David Mitchell, I suspect, is to blame.

    A cure for wellness (2016)
    "An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa's treatments are not what they seem."

    Somehow i never watched this movie, and it appears a hidden gem.

    Now I want to know how SJWs who complained about people being miscast feel about a coloured Macbeth. Not quite historically correct either.

    I don't know much about Shakespeare.. the trailer has a positive rating and I thought it looked interesting *shrugs*

    News of netflix making Death Note 2 on the other hand.......... there should be riots.

    I just meant it more like a general snappy comment about how to take things too seriously. As with any interpretation of work of art, there's artistic freedom to it.
    And honestly, couldn't care less about a Macbeth movie, read the book twice, saw the play in theatre, I know the story anyhow :D
