A tip for Matrix reloaded!(NO SPOILERS)

Okay from what I heard (from a good source) it's been confirmed that after the movie Matrix Reloaded...you have to keep your little ARSE in the seats, cause after the credits you'll probably gonna see the trailer of Matrix Revolution! And bytheway Holland has again a very odd reason for playing Matrix on this thursday(15th) and if i'm correct the US will get it Friday... Got my tickets *teehee* ....Yaaaaay

Love can sweep you off your feet and carry you along in a way you've never known before. But the ride always ends, and you end up feeling lonely and bitter. Wait. It's not love I'm describing. I'm thinking of a monorail.

I'm downloading it now, 1323MB file....jesus christ. I'll see it next weekend. I wish I could see it this weekend, especially since this hot girl I know wants me to go, but I have an unexpected, sudden, personal emergency and need to travel to SoCal this weekend....

So...it's next weekend for me. Hope it rocks. And thanks for the after credits tip! Much appreciated.

its good. quite good. but as good? not enough time has passed to tell

i did not wait around until after the credits so i cannot confirm/deny the trailer (its an exhausting experience just watching the movie)

the trailer is there, its ok, and dammit those credits are long. there had to be at least 100 carpenters for the australian set (built zion). but we just talked over the credits and attempted to get less confused.

If you have seen the movie and would like clarifications on some of the themes etc., the best review i've found is by david polland. read the normal review, and then read the two spoiler sections (only if you've seen the movie). It helped me process the mountain of information a bit better.

I donno, the buzz around campus aint too flattering. The gist of it goes like this "Matrix had a deep meaningful plot, and Reloaded tried to have deep meaningful dialogue. But it was very pretty."

I would disagree with that assessment. the first matrix was far from deep. they threw some philosophy bones in there every once in a while. not that i didn't enjoy it emmensly, but despite the nerd following, the first matrix was a pretty shallow setup type movie (who's premese gets torn to shreds in reloaded). While the first movie exsisted on sfx, and wonderful style, reloaded exsists on a deep plot, even better sfx, and the same style.

reloaded is a fundamentaly different movie. it is far more deep, indeed many people complain that it has too much structure (for one viewing). reloaded is also only one part of two, so i did feel like they just cut me off at the end. anyway, if there was any movie this year to see on the big screen, I really can't see the logic in it not being reloaded.

i did stumble on this:
http://www.pointlesswasteoftime.com/film/matrix50.html
a joke about why not to watch reloaded


oh, there might be spoilers in it, depending how sensitive you are
