I wonder what they'll do with the supposed reboot, if there's a franchise that can make a legitimate use of reboots in an artistic way, it's the Matrix, since it's filled with Vedic influences.

And if it's the Wachowski's I'm sure they'll make good use of that, I just hope it's not as weak as Jupiter Ascending or that it doesn't taint the first 3.

I've always wondered this too. You know it's bound to happen. Let's just hope they stay in the Matrix for most of the trilogy, as it's the goofy sci-fi elements that really brought 2 and 3 down from "decent" to "WTF did I just watch".

Gimme a reboot in vain of the first Matrix, and keep the franchise in that space, I'll be happy.

Moana - 9/10

Wow! Disney has such an amazing track record, and this is one of their stronger films. Achingly beautiful, fully realized characters, funny, entertaining and powerful story with very good music. Really paid tribute to the Polynesiam people it depicted.

I don't know if it will catch on like Frozen, but it deserves to.

This is a must buy.

Good to hear. I'll be watching this one too.

It pains me how the Matrix sequels are so underrated and misunderstood, people got distracted with hurrr muh Goku fights and muh robots!!! and the completely missed all the wisdom and mind**** the sequels have to offer. Suffice to say that most people have no idea what the sequels talk about :lol

I think the first one is probably the best made one since it's small and contained, plus less CGI, but 2 and 3 are where the meat and potatoes really are imo.

The first film has a lot of little details, references, and symbols that get lost because of all the style and special effects. I think people just like the idea of a dream world (in more ways than one :lol), the cool fights and effects...which are nice, but the sequels are necessary, imo. After watching all three films back to back, the first feels incomplete without the sequels, imo. I can't say that about most trilogies.

Yup, that's pretty much the case with the entire trilogy, but the first one has a more straight forward plot which the audience can hold on to even if they don't get the underlying themes, and with the sequels there's no such thing, the audience gets lost and they think they're bad movies.

to not get the themes from the matrix is impossible, they beat it over your head the entire time. then they released 2 ****** sci fi movies that shared the same name and themes.

they're just bad movies, you don't get anything out of them but a more awkward, over saturated, boring trilogy.

if i want a sequel to the matrix, i'll just take a few tabs and watch the first one please and thanks. :D

Hacksaw Ridge 10/10. Hell of a movie about faith and manhood. Even if you don't share his values (which I don't ... I'm a Baptist, we're well-armed disciples of Christ). Mel Gibson has made the two best Christian movies in a generation.

The Big Sleep 9/10. Bogey and Bacall. My 12-year-old daughter sat and watched the whole thing with me ... which was a bit surprising. Really good movie. Awesome chemistry. Some really great lines in there ("What's wrong with you?" "Nothing you can't fix."). Plot was a bit convoluted. Not quite as good as The Maltese Falcon, but close.

You've proven that you don't know the themes of the sequels. And no, the sequels don't go over the same stuff the first one does, seriously, I'm not being salty, I don't mean this as a taunt, I'm just telling you that it looks like you have no idea what the Matrix sequels go into judging by what you've told me.

I'm not sure I trust the Wachowski's anymore, but at the same time they might be the only people I trust revisiting their material. If someone else takes over it might feel like fanfiction.

Still, I have no idea where they can take the story. I wouldn't mind a new trilogy with some new characters as long as the old cast returns in some way. Maybe they can do a new Aimatrix or some CGI/animated show on Netflix or something if they can't make a new film.

After watching the trilogy, I'd like some merchandise and figures from it even more so than a new film. Why isn't there any merchandise? No Neca figures or even those funko pop things. Nothing. :dunno

Even hot toys got stuck in limbo with releasing merchandise only thing they released was squid, only thing i loved from the matrix was anytime they were plugged in, real world killed it for me, something they did right in the first one but messed up horrible in the last two

Knock Knock. 1/10. Keanu Reeves bangs a couple of annoying chicks in a plot more befitting Penthouse Forum ... then they harass him, torture him, and ruin his life. For no reason, best I can tell. Dear Lord, what an embarrassing spectacle. Not even the nudity was capable of saving this dreck. My wife likes 'scary' suspense movies, so I'll occasionally suffer something like this. Not sure who wrote this drivel, but the dialogue was about as clever as a 4th grader's short story, and the plot was worse. Keanu Reeves is incapable of playing a family man with genuine emotion. He's find as a stoic badass in John Wick or as a loner hacker turned ninja in The Matrix. He was a complete mismatch for this thing. And, I got the feeling the two girls were supposed to be attractive and alluring -- which might've worked if I'd muted the dialogue -- but they weren't. I'd've just made 'em wait on the porch in the rain.

The Paper Chase. 4/10. Entertaining ... but not in a good way. Another one of those movies that's so insufferable that I had trouble looking away. Bunch of pedantic, self-important law students suffer from a chronic lack of perspective during their first year of law school. Not a likable character in the lot.

I went to law school. Nobody acts like that. They spend the entire movie gossiping, spying, and obsessing over the personal life of this one pompous professor ... as if the basic contract law class he's teaching them is truly the collected wisdom passed through the generations to their not-so-remarkable minds. Good grief, it's contract law. Y'know ... the crap Judge Judy deals with every afternoon on Channel 4. Good lord.

Inception. 10/10. Came on IFC this afternoon. Been a while since I'd seen it. I'd forgotten what a badass movie it was.

I really liked Sicario as well. It was definitely darker, but it was also more "real", dealing with more common issues. Arrival I'll probably have to wait until it hits Blu-Ray, 'cause I really don't have the time to go the theater right now. Mid-Terms are in 2 months, the curiculum is ~4000pg and we just got books, so, yeah...

I think you're gonna like the rest of Villeneuve's movies if you were tickled by the twist in this one.

I think the twist in this movie, and the one in Arrival are the biggest ones, but the twist in Sicario is also pretty cool.

If you guys like Villeneuve watch Polytechnique (based on a true story from interviews of a school shooting in MTL). It's haunting the way he made it and only lasts 77 minutes. The incredible part about it is that he filmed it in French and then did the same talking scenes in English on the Blu-Ray, so there's no subs.

Also check out Incendies. Twist in that one as well.

Bad Moms: 4/10

Too preachy about the noble profession of being a mother. Points for Mila Kumis and Kristen Bell. Not that funny but still funnier than Trainwreck. There was an odd line that did make me laugh--one character was crying about all the bad things that were happening in her life, and she said, "My DVR stopped recording Castle for no reason..." And that actually happened to me IRL! (that happened way before it was cancelled, btw)

It's not bad, but the special effects are a bit dated and the ending is a bit anticlimactic. I like the aliens though. It has a few cool scenes, but overall it's an average movie. I had no idea you were such a big fan of this movie. :lol It's just a typical alien film. :dunno

WOW. What a great pulpy crime period piece. Every time a new number was peformed I found myself thinking "wow they are stealing the show." It's great something like this (pure entertainment, not trying to preach anything or teach a lesson) won best picture Oscar. Sorry but this wholly derserved it over two towers and pianist. Also love the fact that these overall horrible people end up "winning" at the end of the film.

Was not at all expecting this movie to be like this. Being a horror fan and hearing numerous praises, it was just not what I expected. I loved it though and thought it was a pretty great creepy thriller, with surprisingly good performances and a tight story.

It just seemed like he was that 'two guys, a girl & a pizza place' dude all the time in everything - & his head irritated me. I love the GL character, & his stpuid box head, coupled with him being a mammoth miscast - & the production being poorly handled on top, cemented my dread of the guy. :lol

The violence's always been there but there are 2 clear distinctions of how the character is often written, Good Deadpool, who fans like, and Waypool, and Waypool is only liked by either normies or people who only know Deadpool because of the game, haven't met anyone who reads comics who actually likes Waypool.

The Deadpool who cracks juvenile edgy jokes is referred to as "Waypool" because of the writer who started that trend; Daniel Way,

Well, there was a lot of Waypool in the film and not enough cartoon/ Looney Tunes humor/logic. Not all of it was dumb or silly, and I ended up liking the "serious" moments more than anything else. Reynolds is surprisingly effective when he's serious.

I agree, half of the jokes are good and half of the jokes a unfunny and stupid, it's ok to be raunchy but in this movie most of those jokes don't land with me.

That was my basic understanding of the 'good' DP as well. My summation of the film was based on that, really. What became a chore, was how they kept piling stupidity on top of more stupidity, just for cheap laughs.. that was just unnecessary. Gags - sure, clever wit - sure, wacky / confronting - sure, violence / smart alecry - sure, but all the gutter comedy was bad form, & they just kept going there. As TCP says, the more serious moments in the movie were great. To answer your question Gaspar, I'm not a Reynolds fan, but he was good in DP, & I really enjoyed the movie.

One thing I forgot to mention (DOH!), was how good Colossus was!

That said, I haven't watched the entire thing properly (I'm dong that with TNG atm), but a local network has been showing some episodes again here & there, & there's some heavy themes & subject matter, but I mean that in a good way.

Sorry folks, but I thought this was terrible.

Why the hell was Jai Courtney even in this movie? Then again, why is Jai Courtney in any movie?

I laughed once, and that was because I told my Wife the nameless Villain with no intro was going to die first, then 2 seconds later he died. Poor guy, at least let the viewers know who he was.

Actually there was a second time i laughed, after the satellites were taken out, they still managed to get a live feed, in the middle of the ocean, of an aircraft carrier being destroyed. That actually earned this movie extra points. :lol

Made little to no sense.

Two good things came of this...

I didn't spend any money on it because I got a $5 Vudu credit the day before.

And...

Found a superhero movie I hated more than MOS and BVS. I'd watch BVS on a 24 hour loop before I ever watched this again.

There might have been a slightly better movie in there somewhere, because you could tell it really suffered from the lousy editing.

Ledger's Joker was so good that it's nearly impossible to watch this movie and not wish for that Joker instead. I think Leto is a good actor, but what I saw of his Joker I didn't really like, just felt more like an up and coming young Gangster/Thug than what I recognize as the Joker. Perhaps if there had been more time with his character I might have felt differently.

Initial rating: 9/10

Final 30 minutes of the movie: 11/10

I was blown away by details both major and minor in this film and consider it to possibly be the new high water mark for prequels, not just in Star Wars, but any franchise, any genre. I knew that I'd enjoy it if it was at least as good as ROTJ, and even if it wasn't I figured it'd still be at worst another "Genisys," an enjoyable movie but not one I accept as canon.

Yeah. I was amazed at how expertly it expanded the universe, complete with unexpected twists and turns, yet still adhered to the narrative long since finalized by the opening scroll of ANH. And to do so in such a hyper-scrutinized saga as SW is a profound accomplishment.


Agreed completely.

I saw it again recently and gave it a 7. It's got some major problems, but it's still above the Bat Nipples films. I feel like it got lost in the Gotham politics too much and there was not enough Batman in it, or at least good scenes with him. Aside from him fighting Catwoman to using the Batglider, I find the film fairly boring. But it's extremely atmospheric, and having it snow filled gave it such character.

Although, love that version of the suit and I go back and forth between that and the 89 version as of late on being my favorite.

Agreed, the film just doesn't have the edge that 89' does, it tries with the gross gags etc, but it only hurts it. Penguin is also a cheesefest but I can look over that because of how the entire film presesnts itself as a whole. Decent Burton movie, ok batflick.

Yeah it's only natural to have a drop off after fully processing a film. In the same hand it can also go up, like my appreciation for T1 over T2, but that's a whole other can of worms. Although, not as volatile conversation as a Star Wars one can be.

Funny you mention that, my now wife loves the film since she grew up with it and loves Michelle as Catwoman. I think having her a psycho made it work, just her creation is questionable. But, it fits Burton's formula, at least back then in his films.

I grew up with it too, more than the 89... but as I got older and saw it more, the original will probably always have the top position for me in Batfilms. The suit, the subtle Batvoice, the car, the dirty scary city that isn't Chicago and that Elfman soundtrack. It's great.

I do think it's interesting that a prequel film that we already knew the outcome to brought more "new" stuff to the table than TFA, a sequel with no limit to the things they could introduce. I guess LFL moved quickly on the "forward" part of "going back to go forward."

I have to agree. The resistance against the First Order is just the rebellion against the Empire again.

I wasn't referring to you :lol

And I honestly don't have a problem with how people rate things, I just find it a little too easy for some to throw those numbers out there. Save them for truly great films. I've not seen Rogue One so I can't comment on that, but what I'm saying is the lines are blurred with reviews on here when you see the same thing day in and day out.

Yes yes yes.....a 1-10 scale means an AVERAGE MOVIE gets a 5.

Some people seem to think a 1-10 scale means anything thats not a SyFy original gets a 7.......like their scale goes from 7-10

True 10's are timeless classics......
Like

The Godfather
Back to the Future
ESB
Indiana Jones

Etc etc.......

Pretty much. This movie is still scarier and has better acting than a lot of the garbage pumped out today. It's been 43 years too. :rock
