Some movies are best left without a sequel…

Well, I finally got around to watching The Matrix: Reloaded the other night and all I have to say is, *yawn*…

Mind you, I ended up watching a pirated copy off the ‘net because I’ve found it’s exceedingly difficult to find a theater that is open at 2:00 AM (and because I’m a gigantic nerd). The quality wasn’t top notch, so maybe that had something to do with my movie-going -staying experience, but it just didn’t strike me like this phenomenal piece of cinematography that it was made up to be. I thought that the original was great – it left a few things hanging, but still told an entire story – but now it seems like we’re just pushing this story along into the next sequel and it was really obvious, or at least I thought it was. The first one stood out because it was a milestone of its time, but they followed the exact same formula to make this one and I honestly think that they could’ve done better by just leaving it be and creating a whole new story. Of course, I’ll still probably buy the DVD when it comes out, at least for the special effects and whatnot, but you won’t catch me lining up three weeks before the opening for tickets to The Matrix: Revolutions, that’s for sure!

Not that you’d catch me lining up more than ten or fifteen minutes for any movie tickets. I’m told that I don’t have the proper wardrobe for it, anyways…
