    The matrix

    Just watched this on blu-ray.

    I completely forgot how awesome it is.

    Makes me sad to think how good the sequels could have been.

    100% agree, the 2nd and 3rd films are just mindless dross compared to the origianl.

    First went down the rabbit hole, second and third disappeared up the Wachowski's own holes.

    I an just up packing my set from HMV now.
    Cant wait to fire it up.
    Just fitted surround sound system so here goes.

    the first does rule, and looks amazing at 1080p too. pity about the other two, although as action/scifi films theyre still good.

    I don't so much think the last two were terrible films, but the first was so good.. they completely missed the mark on where the second and third should have gone.

    The last scene in the 1st movie this morning (the phone call)

    I know you're out there...I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. … I know you're out there...I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us, you're afraid of change...I don't know the future...I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end, I came here to tell you how this is going to begin. Now, I'm going to hang up this phone, and I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you...a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world...where anything is possible. Where we go from there...is a choice I leave to you...



    This got me thinking, really i think the 2nd and 3rd films should have been about how neo helps them to get more and more people out of the matrix ready to fight the machines, Morpheus touched on the fact that many people cant leave the matrix as they are too attached to it, this would lead them down the path of deciding whether someone in the matrix is actually "alive", the only way to take down the machines would be to take away the power source meaning that neo would need to instigate some events within the matrix that would make the population reject it, die, and starve the machines of power.

    Just my thoughts. lol.

    Why didn't they just use cows? Silly robots.

    Indeed it would but I suppose a lot of robots would be out of a job and the robot trade union would not be happy about that.
