Re: matrix reloaded spoilers

well it needs to have a PLOT. it needs to have a begining, middle, and ending.

matrix had no ending..it just stopped.

"TO BE CONTINUED" is not an ending. Hollywood has really dupped the public into believing this.

Re: matrix reloaded spoilers

No, I agree with Sassy on this *faints* it was wrong.

Movies should be standalone... if you wanted to watch just #2, you should be able to.

But they got a bit too big for their boots ending it that way.

Re: matrix reloaded spoilers

So just because Matrix did it different, its wrong? IŽll admit it was annoying to end it that way, and that what you are saying was my first thought, though. But anyways its not like its going to take another two years for the next movie .

I mean, check out the ending of Back To The Future 1 and 2. Not as ubrupt, i know, but it doesnŽt really "end" there.

Re: matrix reloaded spoilers

This is the same argument as Lord of the Rings, but it's even more true this time, because there was a lot of press all over the place that the third movie is coming out in the fall. They only put 6 months between two installments of a film series, which I believe is unprecedented.

The public wasn't "dupped."

Re: matrix reloaded spoilers

I agree with GKE. To have gone into Matrix Reloaded(or either of the first 2 LotR movies) expecting there to anything approaching closure when the credits rolled requires willfully ignoring the avelanche of publicity etc. surrounding the movie.

And am I to understand that sassy thought that The Empire Strikes Back had an actual ending? It's basically the same ending that she so bemoaned in Fellowship of the Ring. In both cases nothing is resolved in the "Big Picture" and we leave off with the idea of "We're going to have to rescue Han / the Hobits ..... Somehow .... sometime ..... somewhere."

Re: matrix reloaded spoilers

well, take B5 for example...each episode could stand on its own. there was a plot and a subplot. as well as a continuing 5 year story line.

also i expect a movie to have the basic points: a beginning, a middle and an end. didn't ya'll go to school? didn't you learn anything in Composition class? these are the BASIC teachings they teach us.

in order for something to be good it is considered to have a protagonist, antagonist, and a plot. you know..a POINT.

so there wasn't a plot in matrix, except for a basic one such as a sex scene and some hi special effects fight scenes. are you men really this shallow? that u think 'show me some sex and some fighting?' that u completely gloss over the fact that u sat watching the screen EXPECTING an ending that never happened? oh so the dude just wanders around his city, then the matrix, then seeks the oricle for NO FUCKING REASON. he goes into the room and the all powerful dude says, oh well, your city is going to die..and then nothing....

what point of NOTHING happend don't ya'll get?

as for the arguement "oh, there is part 2.' bullshit. each movie should stand on its own.

i can't believe you buy into hollywoods MONEY making scam of 'oh theres two movies!' hook line and sinker! its a frelling SCAM~ to get more money out of you! thats IT!

for your $7 you are paying for an ENDING! you are paying for a POINT! but oooooooooh no..u want to pay $14 for the ending..

WHO is the one being dupped now?
