Matrix Reloaded, The (2003) – 2010-08-15 22:16:37
loved it

I watched it again this week and couldn't stop thinking.

The fight scenes were all really good. Keanu is great as usual, and I think the car chase was the best I'd ever seen. And the special effects were incredible-- apparently Trinity's kamikaze dive out of the building was contructed completely from scratch.

The Merovingian's speech made me think. Are we really free? Have I actually ever made a free choice in my life? Probably not. It's actually quite unnerving. The fact that the Oracle says that "you didn't come to make the choice-- you've already made it" doesn't help. It's still kind of creepy...

I love how the Wachowskis think everything through in the Matrix movies-- how no scene is insignificant, how every word said by the character hints a deeper meaning, how every name, color, and number matters. Even the music is symbolic. (Apparently the main Matrix theme was created by Don Davis based on the theme of reflections throughout the trilogy.)

I think the plot of the Matrix Reloaded, along with the rest of the trilogy, is one of the best I have ever seen. I don't know why so many people say the sequels were terrible. D:

It was also the first Keanu movie I'd seen when it came up on tv in Febuary 2010 (right in the bullet time scene where Neo throws off all the Smiths.) I guess this movie was a turning point for me-- it made me begin to question reality, existence... everything.

Thank you Larry and Andy Wachowski. :D

The Devil's Advocate (1997) – 2010-05-09 11:48:01

I actually really liked this movie, a lot. Keanu's accent sort of made me angry at first, and there was sort of too many kissing scenes, but I liked Keanu's performance in general. "Lose? I don't lose! I win! I win! I'm a lawyer! That's my job, that's what I do!" --Kevin Lomax :D :D :D
