    I don't usually care about trailers, but with LoTR or Harry Potter I get excited for new ones. Maybe it's the music? Anyway: Harry Potter 3. I've got the Bradbury/MacBeth tune in my head now.

      I just saw Matrix: Revolutions and I'm joining the chorus of Boos. What the shit was that? Seriously, I'm not deep and I don't watch movies so I can think about them. I need someone to tell me what the fuck I just saw because I don't get it at all.

      Unless, of course, the whole message of the movies is that Hugo Weaving is the coolest motherfucker in the universe, in which case I totally did get it.

          Oh, I totally forgot Seann William Scott, whom is not only so smoking hot, but also available in another movie currently playing in my local theatre with the Academy Award nominee The Rock. I would watch it if I didn't break my glasses frame yesterday. (The glasses are okay though, I did think about just holding them with my hands, but that's just too complicated)

            While I have no love for most of the cast (save Willam from Mallrats), I'm kind of intrigued by The Butterfly Effect trailer. time travel stories.

              But Harry Potter 3 will not have Wood! No wood! I am looking forward to it though. Gary Oldman looks eerily like Bushemi.

              Can I just say how much I loathe the Last Samurai without even seeing it? I saw the Cruise interview on the Today show with Katie and it just bugged my tits. to Tom teaching Katie how to use an old school Japanese sword.
              It's all about me and my precious.

                Let us not speak of the lack of Wood, Pig. It's too much to bear! Fucking bastards. But BoggartSnape in Neville's Granny's hat may make up for it---briefly.

                Every time I see the trailer or the poster for Last Samurai, I cannot stop rolling my eyes. WHY the vanity project, Tommy Shortstuff? His casting makes no sense at all.

                  Y'all ruined my trip to the movies last night.

                  We were going to go see Matrix Revolutions when Mr. Is and I started to discuss the fact that *everybody* we know said either "eh" or "WHAT SHIT!" so we lost steam while driving there and just never ended up at the movie.
                  Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

                    I saw the Matrix again and while I'm still annoyed, the second viewing allowed me to appreciate what little good there was, like the fight scene in the Bondage Club, the Smith/Neo confrontation and Monica Bellucci's , which deserved their own billing in the credits.

                    I think the Brothers W. are guilty of the same thing as George Lucas: They're so concerned with the effects (Fight on the ceiling! Robot Bugs!)that they blow off the characters (Attack of the Clones-esque dialogue, Morpheus having nothing to do). Intentionally or not, they made me give a crap about Neo et al. in the first film. By the end of this one, I couldn't stop rolling my eyes at everything they did/said.

                      Well, Master and Commander was um, informative? I know the movie is based on maybe 20 books, so the plot wasn't nearly as interesting as watching what those ships were like in an era without engines. "I see them Sir, two points off the starboard bow! A day ahead, at most!" They're in sight for a DAY and they're chasing them! Manoman. *hugs engine*

                      I was disappointed Weir didn't use my favorite cannonball I'd read about in books. They use two cannons and the balls are connected with chain and they're sent flying to rip the sails.

                      I thought the movie was awesome for historical interest but it is not an action movie at all. At least not in the era of Bruckheimer. If you know what I mean, and I think you do. Hee. Some guys in the theatre were disappointed.

                        I never get out to the movies anymore Ė not since the baby came along. However the other night I took my stepdaughter and her two friends to see Elf. It certainly isnít cinematic brilliance, but I laughed out loud in a couple of places. (Particularly the part where Buddy meets Finch in his fatherís office. I mean, you see the jokes from a mile away but I. still. laughed.). Either this means I need to get out and get a life (bite me) or it was actually a somewhat funny movie.

                          It was actually a somewhat funny movie, kath. I went to see it Saturday because I needed a laugh/feel-good movie, but the ghetto theater I went to didn't have Love Actually. Elf was amusing and did exactly what I needed it to do.

                            My nephew and I went to see Matrix Revolutions over the weekend. We both agreed: too much talking, not enough fighting, the battle scene at the dock was ridiculous, and it took waaaaaay to long for some characters to die. In this movie when most people are shot they die quickly and we don't see it. But I really don't want to hear a speech on love and faith and all the other crap. Just.die.already.

                            I really wanted to see Elf but nephew won the coin toss. I did win the coin toss for playing Tony Hawk on PS2, instead TLOTR:TTT.

                              i so don't wanna look like a nerd but I LOVED MATRIX. not the first one but the movies as a whole. now i can imagine everyone going fuckin' bullet-time to the keyboard to be like "WTF!" but i love it. it is deeper and more complex than the other trilogies that i grew up with (star wars, porkys, and more modern the Lord of The Midgets {midgets are scary and hobbits are midgets with hairy feet......ewwwwwwwwww!}).

                              so yo...why do i love de matrix. because i love thinkin'. because it reflects many religious and phylos questions. let me begin by saying i LOVE the fact that the matrix itself is Plato's allegory of the cave. the fact that slaves are kept in a cave all their lives. they are shown shadow puppet type stories on the wall and they eat, sleep, and work in the cave. one day a slave is taken outta de cave and sees "the real world." he is just unplugged from the matrix and questions, then at that moment, what is real?

                              and that's just the tip of the effin iceberg. i mean look into all the names of the characters and see who they are in greek philosopy for example- Morpheus is the god of dreams and helps those dreaming come out of dreams; exactly what he does with "the one" {so we don't mix him up with Neo[maxy]. also look up persephone (very interesting).
                              also the relationship between the architect and the oracle. fucking brilliant allegory of dualism/taoist ideas.
                              and so on, and so on, /////

                              but now that i've outed my nerdiness i must get back to putting on my velcro shows, and power walk my ass to the hobby shop. lost my twenty sided die.

                                I actually liked the second Matrix way more than most people did but I'm LD when it comes to philosophy.


                                more bitchy asides/Enter key between paragraphs! Yay! Now if you can embrace the shift key in "LOVE" you can certainly try it at the beginning of sentences! Now go put on your special shoes./bitchy aside
