Episode 212 - The Matrix Revolutions

As the Summer Blockbuster Extravaganza winds down, the gang tackles the worst part of one of the biggest movie franchises, The Matrix Revolutions! Why did they think it was a good idea to have all sorts of important story elements play out in video games no one wanted? Did we need to meet this many members of Dozer's family? And what's with all the sex clubs? PLUS: The one who owns all the Sunglass Hut franchises in the Matrix is truly The One.

The Matrix Revolutions stars Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Harry Lennix, Harold Perrineau, Jada Pinkett Smith and Bruce Spence; directed by The Wachowskis.

I don't know that I've ever had a worse time at the theater than sitting through this garbage pile of a film. Great pick WHM gang.

Could next week be League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? I was laughing pretty hard in the world of Agent Smith part.

The second 2 Matrix movies are a bit of a guilty pleasure for me but I completely admit the 3rd movie is a FUCKING SLOG to get through, I remember looking at my watch several times while seeing it in the theatre.
You guys hit the nail on the head SO many times in this show. SO. MANY. TIMES.

I could have listened to another half hour of you guys tearing this movie a new one. The Wachowskis should go back to making low budget flicks like Bound. It's cool they've been making "original" fare post Matrix, but I can't give them another chance after shit like Cloud Atlas or Jupiter Ascending.

So here's a genre of film that I hate, which I feel that The Matrix became: films that were clearly meant to be single movies but are then made into trilogies, as though they were meant to be trilogies. Christopher Nolan's Batman films were never meant to be a trilogy, but they retroactively made it one. Here's another: Terminator.

Star Wars was meant to be a Trilogy. Back to the Future was too. How do we know? The end of the first films sites up the next film in line. The Matrix didn't do that. So it was just an afterthought to make Matrix a trilogy.

P.S. Once you get past the first chapter, Infinite Jest is great. One of my favorite novels. And guess what else; one of my other favorite books is "Cloud Atlas." The film was OK, but the novel is really incredibly good.

I know League of Extraordinary Gentlemen totally deserves an episode, but I'd love it if next week's is Highlander 2.

Either way, this episode was great stuff, guys. Thanks!

Was was the sequel to Star Wars setup anymore so that The Matrix?

Ufotofu9, Back to the Future was totally not planned to be a trilogy. The "cliffhanger" ending was a gag, and if Robert Zemeckis and crew had originally planned on a sequel, they would have done that ending entirely differently, especially in concerns of Jennifer. The reason Jennifer is unconscious in those two movies is because they had no idea what to do with the character.

As for the Wachowskis, I guess I'm a bigger fan then most of the people here. There's a weird earnestness in their movies that you don't see in most Hollywood pictures. That said, Matrix Revolutions is garbage, their worst film by a mile.

Last time it was Sean Connery I predicted wrong. This time having seen the facebook post on this I know I'm right. I wish I wasn't right, I don't even want to remember watching half that piece of shit
