Went and saw The Matrix Reloaded last night. Ran into three of my former co-workers – Donald, Aaron, and Jeffrey. Talking to Jeffrey was a little odd, but otherwise pretty painless. he’s pretty happy and biz seems to be picking up, so it’s all good.
As for the movie : Wow. Didn’t suck.
Now, it *DID* still ahve some plot holes, the acting in places could have been better, but overall, I enjoyed myself. Lots and lots of action. Much more than the first movie. The car chase kicks ass.
Thinking of it as action with and OK plot helps. Kind of like porn with a plot, only this plot keeps you involved between action scenes. Some people were complaining about the political stuff, but i think that’ll be more relevant next movie. I hope.
Oh, and while pretty well done, I could have done without the Neo/Trinity sex scene.
And when you see it, make sure you wait until the credits are over before you leave. Trust me.
Mad, mad thanks to the COUp folks for letting me tag along.
