I wanna see it the first day. But I'll wait a few days-a couple weeks. Cuz I HATE crowded movie theatres, TOO Noisy and I cant feel comfertable. So, like I said, I'd wait a few days. :)

My theater is showing it on Wednesday night at 10 PM as well. I bought my ticket on the 6th and me and my friends are going to be there around 8:30 waiting for it to open so we get good seats.

Maybe we'll order a pizza while in line ;)

My brother and I are getting there at 7:00 pm. there's a Subway right across from the theatre (it's in a mall), so if I get hungry or thirsty I just walk over there:D . I can't wait. only 60 hours and 20 minutes :D

Seriously don't be surprised if they show the original Matrix, or The Animatrix until they can probably show it at Midnight....


I mean us here in Australia have to wait until the Friday since we are in the same time zone as the Asian Pirateers, otherwise it would hit the US before it was in the cinemas.....

I have not looked, but I bet Toronto is having wednesday night Matrix Madness too. I do not drive and so I will not be going, I also feel sorry for theatre staff; used to be one. they have to stay until the theatre gets cleaned, and then evil greedy movie house corporation makes them come in for an early shift the next day. I am thinking of maybe going thursday, If I feel well enough, or if they even have any tickets left. I alos want to see it on IMAX. they are releasing it 3 weeks later in IMAX format, now that would be a real tumble down the rabbit hole. anyhow as my avitar sugguests, I am Matriculated.

I'm actually hearing fairly mediocre things about it - like there are a few scenes destined to be classics, but the movie as a whole is fairly flat and just OK.

We have a Pizza place that opened right next to the theater so we can just have one of us walk over there and bring back a pizza with some hot wings.

You're NOT going to spoil the fun for me, ok :mad: :p :p

Well I'm going to see it this friday @ 21:30 CET. And the first day for the matrix reloaded is thursday here, 22:00CET, so hey I didn't do that bad.

And do you guys have to wait in line to get the best seats? Here you make a reservation and the sooner you do that, the better seats you have, it doesn't really matter when you show up, as long as it's 45 minutes before the show begins :)

Weirdness. In my backwater country, they're showing it the 21st. How come it's out earlier here, than in England? :confused:

But I don't think I'll see it until a week later when the craze has settled. New movies is just not something I could ever get myself worked up over.

And I hate crowded cinemas.

Me too. That would be a great idea. Unconscious through a whole week of exams. Pucker:D

The film looks great, sadly I won't be able to see it for a long while (well, until next Saturday anyway:().

But—to get to the bad news—“Matrix Reloaded” is, unlike the first film, a conventional comic-book movie, in places a campy conventional comic-book movie, and in places a ludicrously campy conventional comic-book movie.

And what, may I ask, is wrong with comic-book movies? Huh?!?!?!

I will FIGHT that New Yorker idiot.

Excuse my French but I have 2 words to tell those guys who did the reviews

**ck you :D :D :D :D

We the fan's will come to that conclussion and we don't need some Journalist that know's nothing about us tell us what we will like. Cause the fact of the matter is that I don't like Critics.

They always come with a $hit head excuse to why they didn't like it and so forth. Every film that they have given a bad review too I liked so I know I am going to like Reloaded

Reviewers are hypocrits anywayz... No of course not all of them, but I read a LOT of bad reviews, based on wrong informations, written by too conventional ppl ('hey I still think casablanca is the best movie, everything else is wrong!' :rolleyes: )...

So I'm going to judge for myself this friday... :D

05-13-2003, 12:13 PM
I don't know...

Now that the awe of the deep plot and the amazing intro into what the matrix really is has passed, I doubt I'm gonna enjoy anything in the movie but the fabulous action scenes.

Shame they couldn't reinvent it somehow.

Grrr.

05-13-2003, 12:28 PM
I think it's generally going to get bad reviews from people who don't get it because of all the hype. they go to the film and if it isn't the most amazing and incredible movie they've ever seen, then they give it a bad review:rolleyes: . most of these people were not loved enough as kids and now they're trying to ruin the entire movie for th rest of us. well, tomarrow the fans will decide if it's a good movie or not.:p

don't read the reviews, you can't be told what the matrix reloaded is, you just have to see it for yourself. i watched the matrix revisited documentary, and all the actors are like dedicated beyond belief for this project, and the Wachowski brothers are so sure of their ideal, without compromise. if you liked the first one, i am sure you will like this one to. i mean they made Bound just to show Warners what they were all about and they had the actors do almost all their own stunts cause it brought more to the sceen, and they had to fight to get and krrp the helicopter sceen from the first one. they have control over the video game, i mean this is their vision. and we are getting lucky that they are sharing it with us. i mean in the documentary so many movie indusrty people said when i got the script for the matrix i knew it was good i just could not get it. well this time round it is not as new as it was the first time. i mean when the critics got hold of it then it was new and totally different, now it is their duty to poo poo it saying oh seen that done that. also this film is goin to lead into matrix revolutions which might be out as early as this november, and... a whole bunch of plot and storyline exist in the enter the matrix game soon out (if not already) so buy your ticket and go see the show, AND REMEBER PEOPLE ON THIS FORUM FROM THE UK do not get to see it for a whole week yet, so don't blab too much plot. just say you thought it was really really cool.:cool: oh and all posts on the matrix from now on should have a sunglass smiley attached at the end, cause if you are not one of us, you are one of them.

05-13-2003, 12:45 PM
Well said Eggy. :cool:

At the end of the day, critics are just people like you and me but with one difference - they have their heads stuck up their arse. When you read a critic's review, it's just his/her point of view. Just one persons opinion. That is why I never ever listen to critics when it comes to films, games or anything. I make up my own mind. I watch the film myself or play a demo etc.

Critics... pffft.

i have never let a critic's opinion influence me over what films i decide to watch.
there was critics who slammed star wars when it first came out.
fight club got a grilling but it's one of my favorite films.
the list is endless to films that gotten bad reviews but go on to be classics.

watching the 'making of reloaded' program last night, i really sensed how proud everyone involved is about this film.
