What to say about Matrix: Reloaded…

Well, I really didn’t expect too much plot wise entering the movie and I certainly wasn’t disappointed there. But most folks had said “Oh, you’ll dig the last 2/3 of the movie.”

So, I sat through the first third thinking, “Eh, it’ll get better.”

And I sat through the second third and thought, “Oh, well, this is a wee bit better.”

And I sat through the third third and was like, “That’s it?”

And I was not impressed. Okay, fight scenes were okay. At least, for the first five minutes. The last ten of each was just a bit much. And not even all fight scenes were badass. All had parts that were pretty sweet, but I don’t think I sat through any one fight scene and was wowed the whole time. Not even the freeway scene wowed me the whole time. Most of it, yeah, but there were some parts that just fell flat.

Was it good? I don’t know, really, but I’m leaning towards no. Certainly not as good as the first movie and most definately not as good as it’s been hyped to me.

Now, as I write this dinner is cooking and Jenn and I are going to partake of said meal while watching the first Matrix again. Maybe I’ll think differently afterwards. Maybe all of my thoughts will be confirmed. I’ll let you all know.

Friday Five

1. What do you most want to be remembered for? Up to this point? Probably just being a good guy and all. I haven’t really done anything signifigant besides that. Eventually I want to be remembered for doing lots of things to help other people, whether it’s through whatever career I choose or politics if I decide to go head first into that.

2. What quotation best fits your outlook on life? “I didn’t do it.”

3. What single achievement are you most proud of in the past year? I got back into school.

4. What about the past ten years? I survived.

5. If you were asked to give a child a single piece of advice to guide them through life, what would you say? Be good.
