Why is it that nearly everyone here is almost as obsessed with the matrix as they are Star Wars? I dont think the Matrix was that good of a movie myself...*runs from Matrix lovers for dear life*
Your prob not obsessed but Im pretty dam close.

seems your being a lil hipocratical about this:rolleyes:saying "why do people talk about the Matrix" when you are talking about it.(Note: this is not in a negitive way at all)

I've seen the movie fifteen times. :D Can you tell I love it? I didn't understand it at all the first time. Infact, everyone was most likely pulled in the first time by the flashy effects. That's what made them want to see it again. And when they did, they found how intricate the story of The Matrix actually is. Really, it was an awesome movie. It was the original of the widely copied Bullet-time, and the story? Incredible. And as many of you have probably already heard, the second and third get better.

I suppose you a) sort have to enjoy computers and b) have to see it at least three times...well, at least I did.

How many times did you see it?

i really like the matrix, but i'm obsessed with star wars. if i had to choose between the two it would be no contest. the matrix is a great film and i'm looking forward to seeing the sequels, but i've loved star wars all my life.

ya, i have to agree, the matrix is an awesome story and movie, but Star Wars just takes the cake for me.

I personaly hate the matrix. *ducks various sharp objects thrown at head* But I am 90% sure that that is because I was to young when I saw it and didnt understand any of it. I really have been meaning to rent it and watch it again a few times.

Duck? HA!!! Who does that anymore. *Go's into matrix bullet time as the missed objects fling pass* :D

I've watched The Matrix so many times, I've lost count....

I like the Matrix and SW both equally..... well maybe the matrix some what more.... love the story line..........

Well comparing the Matrix and Star wars, is totally in the perspective of the person... Asking this in a sw forum, of course the majority would say that Star wars.. But the matrix is in fact A GOOD MOVIE. I at least watched it 10 times... i had to watch it 3 times just to get the storyline, and which is awesome!...

my thoughts exactly. the matrix is just a way of thinkin brought forward and off course the story line. so much parallels to this worlds. i find it intreging.

We need to free a few minds!

Why didn't you just ask this question in 'The Matrix' thread? :p

The Matrix is my favourite film of all time! The music, the effects, the storyline, the actors etc etc just all clicked with me from the very first viewing of it. There is so much to The Matrix that you could watch it 100 times and still not see everything or understand the meaning of everything.

If you have only seen it once, I highly recommend a second viewing.

The sequels are going to blow your mind! (http://www.matrixfans.net/news.php/5904)

The matrix got its bullet time effects from hong kong dramas called bullet operas. They featured stuff like disarms (think dead to rights meets the matrix).

I like star trek!!! *gets stared at by the plastic-lightsaber weilding people* Nnnnnot really a smart thing to say in a star wars board i guess...

I've only seen it once. The part I liked best is the story....er...aside from bullet-time of course. MOUSE RULES!!

The Matrix is not some complicated plot of a picture,...

Guy gets sucked into a band or freedom fighters who show him his life until now has been a lie,... then he helps them,... plus some dufusy stuff about having a destiny,...

That's about the size of it. You don't need to be a mental giant.

I can't really think of a film that has a plot too complex to understand. Even the Godfather was pretty straightforward. If you want complexity read a book, preferably an OLD one, like one written in the 1700s.

Haven't seen it yet.

Even Pulp Fiction wasn't like Brain surgery...

You want complex,... read the Tax Code.

well if you want a film which gives you no clue to the actual plot, makes you wonder why the credits are rolling when it hadn't finished yet and all you can do is go 'mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm'

then i recommend it.

the Tax Code i can deal with.

ok, about the matrix, try to think of all the references to neo being jesus... "your my own personal jesus" "the one" etc. think of all the refenences to the bible "nebbachadnezzer" "zion" etc. then it gets complicated...

did you even read what i posted?

Sivy
09-12-2002, 11:19 PM
yes, and after you explained it you said, 'im not 100% sure on this'

my point exactly, you try to explain so it makes sense, but your still not sure. which would be the same for me if i try to explain it.
It’s a film that I think no one can explain confidently.

no, im sure if you or i saw it enough times, and put enough though into it, it could be figured out.

*cant wait for Star Trek X to come out* Of course X-MEN 2 had to pull Patrick Stewart away, which delayed ST by months....damn you x-men....DAMN YOU!!
