Stef's capsule review

...of Matrix Revolutions
(Not a spoiler for anyone who has seen previous Matrices.)

In Zion, they make their weapons out of yarn. Since they've been at war for 100 years, they are perpetually saving all the yarn for making weapons. That's why they all wear such ratty sweaters.

Anyway, the Matrix trilogy was a nice couple of movies.

I'm still trying to figure out if I made a mistake to see Reloaded. (It was a discount matinee.) Will seeing Revolutions mean I'd have wasted the cost of one admission or two? ;-)

Think of it this way: you are sitting at the poker table playing Texas Hold-em with a King-eight down, the flop is a two-four-six. You can maybe bluff your opponents, but sadly, in this case, you have no opponents.

Fold, my son. Fold.

If the discount matinee is half of the price of a regular movie, then it's worth seeing, since you will have seen the equivalent of one movie at full price. (Of course, you'll be out another 2 hours and 9 minutes. Plus previews.)

Agreed. The first movie was great in itself, and the second movie was a great half-a-movie with a cliff-hanger. The third movie, I was expecting it to be an exciting conclusion. Instead it was plot bits worthy of nanowrimo :)

Why is it, anyway, that a trilogy with the quality of physical detail and special effects that Matrix has can't afford a better plot? It's not like it would be even a drop in the bucket to hire a decent writer.

well, it depends on whether you like Wagnerian opera- this qualifies-

I love Wagnerian opera, and I don't think Matrix is very much like it at all... maybe italian opera. ;-)

Do you really? Wagnarian opera mostly makes me tired. I love Italian opera though.

Matrix struck me as Wagnarian because it is very messianic and has a moral message that isn't particularly clear.

I actually liked it because of its operatic quality.
