Jealous much?

I didn't forget... I swear

Ok, so there's one drawback to letting the comics auto-post. I forget about the damned news updates.

Let's get this out of the way now. No, I did not like The Matrix: Reloaded. Here is a recap of why:

I thought the fight scenes were cool, and the special effects were great. I thought that the storyline was interesting, and that they had some great ideas as far as the plot and expanding on the original premise. What I had a problem with was the way these two elements were scripted together.

The fight scenes seemed tacked on, and superficial. There was hardly a reason for any of them, other than eye candy. The story, although good, was crammed into like three long, wordy, complicated and unbelievable conversations. It's like they created a whole bunch of cool action scenes, cause they thought they would overload with the cool stuff from the first film, and as an afterthought they stuffed the storyline inbetween them.

I didn't like it. That's my opinion.

I'm sure there's more I'm supposed to post, but nothing comes to mind at the moment. Oh well... I'll make additional posts if I think of anything.

Best. Movie. Ever.

I just got done watching Equilibrium on DVD. I am speechless. This movie was put together so well, it astounds me. And I'm fairly certain that it isn't just that it's being compared to the recent disapointment that was Reloaded, either.

The story was cool and well set up. Believable and well acted. The fight scenes were incredible, and they were sparse, so that when they happened they blew you away. The Gun Kata style had me literally giggling with joy.

If you haven't seen this movie, you must. Go rent it, buy it, bludgeon an old lady to death for it. You owe it to yourself.
