Frankly, I agree with everything in this article.[/list]

That was a waste of time. Which is always good in the morning.

Thanks Mex!

It looks like there are some spoilers in the article, so I''m going to make that a little more clear. It''s pretty important to some people.

All told I have to agree with Ulairi. It was funny in a sad mildly ironic sort of way, but I just ended up wanting to break this guy''s keyboard.

All told I have to agree with Ulairi.

The world is coming to an end, people....

GRRR this guy irritates me did he actaully do any research especially on point 3 about the two black acctresses being cut....Yeah, cause they both DIED before production was complete, what an idiot.


Okay call me stupid but did the guy who wrote that actually write it seriously or is he being sarcastic?

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing Kegboy. I almost always get the sarcasm vibe when I''m supposed to, but I didn''t get that here.

I wanted to read it, but as Elysium was kind enough to mention it contained some spoliers (unlike some people, *cough* blatherboy *cough*) I''ll have to pass on it. Mrs. Yomm and myself rented the first one, just to make sure we''re up to date on the specifics.

Damn. I found it to be very funny. Maybe something is wrong with me.

Particularly points #49 + 50. That''s golden.

Maybe something is wrong with me.

That''s always been my impression.

...either way, I got my ticket for May 15 at 12:05am. Now the only thing I have to figure out is either go home after the movie or go straight to the office because I defiantly would not get any sleep...

The funniest part of reading the whole thing was finding out the guy was actually being sarcastic, that was around, point three I think. Take a look at this:

In fact, the only reason the U.S. Attorney General did not press murder charges against the filmmakers is because the movie was shot in Australia, giving it diplomatic immunity.

Seriously, a movie? Diplomatic immunity? Sheesh

Warner Bros. devoted $300 million to the production of the two Matrix sequels.

In the time the films have been in production, over one thousand American children will have died of starvation. For the cost of these films, each of those children could have been given one million dollars.

This can be applied to anything that costs reasonably big bucks, classical whino opinion though, its almost a cliché.

Two actors were abruptly cut from the sequel cast before production ended, both female minorities. Coincidence?

Aaliyah and Gloria Foster were unceremonially dropped after shooting some scenes for the sequel. What''s wrong, guys? They didn''t test well with the predominantly white Matrix audiences?

Neither actress could be reached for comment.


Seriously though, is there any point in his whole rant that seems even remotely valid to you? Let''s see, ummm... maybe points 6, 7, 8... 8... and the rest is just utter BS about the first Matrix being unrealistic (well boohoo) and some random jabs at Reloaded. The following part is a classic though:

I had attended a showing of The Matrix in May of 1999 with a lady friend, because we are both big Morgan Freeman fans. An hour into the film, as I observed what dreck we were wading in, I walked up and stood before the screen and tried to explain to the audience that this vomitus was below their dignity.

I was greeted by some of the most vulgar insults imaginable, until some began throwing objects and one man even knocked my pipe from my hand. Do you wish to be associated with a group of such character?

I swear if he had used the word monocle instead of pipe I would have LOL''ed but I guess he didn''t want to give away the sarcasm right there.
