The Keanu talks MATRIX 4 (3D) & Warners pays $5 million for Wachowski's HOOD starring Will Smith?!?!

Hey folks, Harry here... and it seems "El Nino" was in the ideal place for some pretty monumental news that "The Keanu" dropped into the world!   Awesome!  I love it when you readers report in from special, off the radar events, like this one!   

Personally, I'm jazzed about this HOOD project that gets mentioned.  I'd heard that BILL & TED 3 was being enthusiastically developed.   And I'm looking forward to basically every project listed below.  

 

 

Hi guys,

Hope you're feeling better Harry, get well soon!

Long time reader, occasional news feeder. Writing from rainy old London, England. Surprised that no one has commented on this, lucky me I guess. Was lucky enough to attend a key note speech at the London school of performing Arts university and was honoured to be in the same room as Keanu Reeves who was the guest of honour. Keanu was here promoting his new movie Henry's Crime which is opening shortly. 

keanu as always was his kind gentle self and spoke to the class for a good 45 mins about his big break in acting and his love for Shakespeare. the floor was then opened for Q&A and the following was note worthy;

- Says he's prepping a action movie around the world of the samurai and that it will be a hard "R" rated 3D action feast that will deliver some great martial art set pieces. he's into 2 months of a 6 month training programme.

- Spoke briefly about the possibility of Bill and Ted part 3 - ( Audience started laughing) but he assured us he's committed to the project. 

this is where the fun begins. Some great info shared with us good people.....

- Says he met the Wachowski's (no emphasis on the word brothers), for lunch over Christmas and stated that they had completed work on a two picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of the matrix as Neo. Says the brothers have met with Jim Cameron to discuss the pro's and con's of 3D and are looking to deliver something which has never been seen again. keanu stated that he still has an obligation to the fans to deliver a movie worthy of the title "The Matrix" and he swears this time that the treatment will truly revolutionise the action genre like the first movie. Wachowski's are working on a movie called "Cloud Atlas" at the moment, once that concludes they will talk again.

- Keanu spoke about the need to encourage writers to continue to focus on working on new ideas and that a good script was worth its weight in gold. For example he said the Wachowski's had just sold the most expensive script in history to Warner Brothers. a modern futuristic take on the legend of "Robin Hood". Says he understands WB paid $5 million for the rights and that  from what the wachowski's have told him, it will be an action movie that would have the same impact visually and technically that Terminator 2 had. Confirmed that Will Smith has agreed ti headline the picture.

that was pretty much it guys, have to give kudos to Mr Reeves. A true gentleman and an esquire.

can't wait for the above to come to fruition. If you use this please refer to me as "El-Nino".

Peace out gents.....

"El-Nino"

    As someone who liked the Matrix sequels

    by MrD

    Despite their obvious flaws, I don't see any need to return to that universe. The ending was an appropriate finish to that universe, one way or another.

    The Matrix films are terrible, but bring on Bill and Ted 3

    by The Krypton Kid

    I was baffled that my friends were so caught up in the Matrix phenomenon. Eventually the sequels exposed how lame and pretentious The Matrix actually is.

    Eh pure BS DDA

    by Extr3m1st

    The 2nd Matrix movie was pretty damn good. The 3rd one was a bit weak and for some reason everyone lumped it together with the final one as if both sucked. I could easily spend more time in that universe if they had a good intelligent script.

  • Jan. 23, 2011, 3:35 p.m. CST

    No, they are not.

    by LordEnigma

    Reloaded and Revolutions are about as smart as any film ever made but that's the thing: you have to be opened to it to get it. If you are not perceptive to what they are putting out there then you are not going to get it. Those of us who got those films, appreciate the living shit out of the Matrix trilogy. The fact that within this decade there could be a chance to see Neo again, well, that makes me all sorts of happy. Sorry it doesn't do the same for a portion of geeks out there.

    optimistic...

    by bubcus

    I like what I've read about Bill&Ted's third romp but revisiting The Matrix really raises my eyebrows. I didn't care too much for the second Matrix film but I did love about half of the third one. The Zion battle was fantastic (I think it's chapter 18 on the DVD onward if I recall). I'm all for a fourth and fifth flick if they can stay true to the spirit of the first film. And with Keanu's upcoming Samurai film, I'm hoping he'll get to show off his bilingual skills. I'd really like to see that.

    Knock knock neo

    by HelmetBoy

    I thought the wachowski's dropped the ball with the second and third matrix films, but having said that, the prospect of them rectifying the series with another movie excites me. I just hope they don't bring back agent smith as the villain yet again! Plus the Merovingian was turf personified. I just hope they imbue neo with more humanity this time. I LOVED the animatrox. What succeeded about those short films was that they expanded the universe in an exiting way whilst staying true to the quality of the original. Reloaded and revolutions on the other hand overly complicated what should have been a more streamlined action affair. Whilst I'm ranting, they should use bullet tome again. I don't know why they dropped it from the sequels. I understand they thought the effect was cliche, but it was an iconic element of the first film and it comlemented the futuristic sci fi vibe. End of rant.

    Concerning Matrix

    by killianx

    I thought the first Matrix was groundbreaking and the sequals failed to live up. The blame for which can be spread The W's may have been pressured to get them out. when you rush creativity the product will lag.

    Will Smith's Next project....

    by Amishplaya4

    He is producing a remake of "Back To The Future". Jaden Smith is playing Marty McSupafly and Carl Weathers is playing Doc Brown. I cant wait. I hope he remakes Goonies next. I would love to see the truffle shuffle turn into the hair whip.

    by Sloppy2nds

    box_bruceleitner

    by damned-dirty-ape

    I agree with you in regards to Speed Racer. Love that film and the soundtrack is excellent. As the for the Matrix, the first was excellent, the second was pretty good but the third totally lost the plot. I honestly think they just ran out of ideas or the script wasn't completely finished when they shot it. It was just so disjointed and convoluted. I'd be up for more Matrix if they brought in characters that were allowed to show emotion and who don't wear sun glasses in fucking dark sewers and warehouses.

  • Jan. 23, 2011, 3:44 p.m. CST

    Matrix Reloaded was merely ok, Revolutions was crap

    by gringostar

    The CG also ruined a lot of the sequels for me, the replacement for Gloria Foster (the Oracle) Mary Alice was terrible, the '"rave" was shite, Smith stopped being sinister and turned into a caricature... the first matrix was amazing though!

    by GeorgieBoy

    Loved the Matrix movies. I also loved how the Architect just blew everyone's minds and made everyone hate Reloaded! Har har, you people are dumb! Anyway, I always felt that Revolutions left us with a rather tenuous ending that would one day return to the machines ruling over mankind again. I was hoping for a more definitive ending where everyone wakes up and starts rebuilding the real world. If this is true and Neo is going to return, my mind races wonder how? Will he be cloned? Revived? Was never really dead to begin with? Hmmm...

    by Johnno

    I'm not kidding any of you. Matrix 4!!! FUCK ALL YOU ASSHOLES!!! I LOVED THE TRILOGY!!! Sure I'll agree with many criticisms of the films and I highly agree the first film is still head and shoulders above the sequels, but man... the sequels, for whatever problems they had are still awesome and oozed ambition and I still think about them every now and then... I highly welcome a Matrix 4! The Matrix: Remains!!! Holy shit! This made my day! And given how much bank the sequels made despite critical reception I see no reason why WB wouldn't greenlight this specially when we will all show up for bullet time sequences in 3-D and I can't wait to see what the Wachowskis pull off now that they have access to James Cameron's virtual cinematography toys! Maybe we'll get some more anime shorts too. The Matrix begs to be explored with contributions from other creative people. Get Pixar, Mamorou Oshii, Hideaki Anno, Studio Ghibli, Gainax etc to contribute get Studio 4C to return and let the good times roll!

    Speed Racer isn't shit

    by damned-dirty-ape

    It's just thats it completely different to nearly anything out there. Fair enough, the acting isn't exactly the greatest but that film sure had a hell of a lot of spirit and the visuals were excellent. Bright, cartoonish and flamboyant, just how it should have been. Seeing that film in the cinema and on blu ray nearly makes you eyes melt.

    GO SPEED RACER GO!

    by blackwood

    SPEED RACER was the last revolutionary 'mainstream' effects-driven film I saw. Nothing has come close to it for inventiveness. It also has a lot of heart. I've turned dozens of people on to it, who at first wrote it off as being pretty drivel and didn't bother to see it. It is a genuine masterpiece and I will defend that statement until the end of time. I'm always up for more Wachowski stuff. I don't feel the MATRIX universe left enough unturned than now needs turning, but I'll give it a shot. HOOD, CLOUD ATLAS -- sure. Will Smith can be a great actor. From what very little I've read about CLOUD ATLAS, it seems like a dense, interesting project. GO SPEED RACER GO.

    Re: by the krypton kid

    by MakNeil

    I dig that you don't like Will Smith, but if your reason is because of his son in The Karate Kid, that's bs because that movie surprised just about everyone by being a success. I haven't seen it myself, but Jaden clearly had quite a bit to do with that film working. Sure there are those that remember the original and its sequel, though I suspect that those numbers would not be enough to make the film successful. Besides, I am not quite getting the hate. You act as if this is the first act of nepotism you have ever seen. And if that is the case, then you really haven't been paying attention.

    Christ. Those two movies were the worst sequels fucking EVER. EVER. And the first movie was so good. What a total waste. If they could make another good Matrix movie it would be a good thing. But I think we'll see a good Star Wars movie from GL before we see a another good Matrix movie.

    Matrix trilogy

    by maxjohnson1971

    I didn't hate the second and third ones, but they had the hard task of following up on what the original delivered. That is no easy feat. Hopefully, if they do a fourth film, they can take some time to do a good script FIRST and then make the movies. I actually enjoyed The Animatrix surprisingly. I don't really get into that anime stuff. Just not my thing. But I'll be first to admit that I'd buy a ticket to a fourth Matrix movie. And a Bill and Ted 3. Will Smith as Hood? Hmmmmm... Not so much.

    These two seem to be like the bigfoot of the movie world. They are always talked about as movie-making geniuses...but you almost never see them! Like during the Speed Racer making-of's and promotions. Aside from the cast and Joel Silver, the Wachowski's never stepped forward. I'm of the persuasion that these two were some kind of smoke and mirrors by Joel Silver as a way to get some of the crazier ideas of his made.

    Matrix 4 and 5 would kill at the box office

    by American Mythos

    It's been several years since The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions. For anyone to say people who don't appreciate those films "just doesn't get them" is wrong. The Matrix established a visually awe inspiring concept with a succinct mythos that didn't get in the way of the fun spirit of the film. 2-3 completely let the mythos become convoluted and ultimately take the spirit of the first Matrix perpetually hostage -- including ending the series with some bullshit peace treaty and an ambiguous resolution for Neo. When I saw Revolutions in theaters, fans had so soured of the bullshit the Wachowski's had fed them in Reloaded and Revolutions, my fellow audience members actually cheered when Trinity died. Cheered?! But I think a return to the world would be awesome. Geeks are forgiving people, especially in a world where a single bad film in a franchise automatically triggers a complete reboot. Give us the same world established in the original, give the film the same gutsiness it takes to refrain from pushing the "reboot" button, and fans will flock to see it. Even before IMAX and 3D became popular, the Matrix films were a visual feast all by themselves. Newer film innovations can only enhance that awesomeness. I can't wait!

    Matrix sequels: Zion just didn't feel right

    by Nem_Wan

    I can buy that people trapped together in a cave like that are multi-ethnic and have orgy parties at the drop of a hat, but the council of elders seemed like they just copied a random planet-of-the-week government from Star Trek: a bunch of people in robes making pronouncements from a long table. Look, we're just supposed to be happy people are surviving, so let's not push our luck and say it's Utopia too. Wherever humans go, petty corruption follows. They showed traitors but not people who just fuck up, fail to care, and force you to prove to yourself that it's worth surviving. If Zion had been more credible, socially, I don't think my patience would have been taxed as much.

    I wasn't happy with the last two, they didn't live up to anything for me, and maybe that's my fault. I doubt new movies will do better, and heck they may even do worse, but that's up to them. I don't think that new movies could diminish my opinions of the people who made the last two though. The Warchowski bros just aren't on the list of directors/filmmakers that I find reliably entertaining. Matrix was damned good though, so if there's even chance that could happen again, or just be proven again to be a fluke, then so be it. Honestly I have no interest in more Bill and Ted. I just can't imagine that being so popular. I get Indiana Jones, I even get Tron, but Bill and Ted? I'd take a sequel to Weird Science or Baron Munchausen first.

    makniel, there was no reason to call it "The Karate Kid"

    by The Krypton Kid

    Seeing as how Kung Fu was what the kid practiced. Will Smith's scheme was to exploit the bankability of the iconic Karate Kid name to guarantee a hit for his kid. I've heard of nepotism happening in Hollywood, but nothing on that scale. And there's no way that movie made money on the star-power of Jaden Smith. The Karate Kid is iconic and a "remake" is a guaranteed hit. And the only reason there was a remake was because Will Smith wanted a star-making vehicle for his kid. And the "remake" stunk. It was a soulless copy of the soulful original. Unlike the original, the acting felt forced and the storytelling lacked charm. It was cliche-ridden crap, as well as Smith family and Chinese government propaganda. If people liked that garbage, it's because of the diminished standards of modern film audiences.

  • They were talking bout how their fliqs, although containing a lot of special fx, were concentrated primarily on the story and then the cgi, and how the prequels were the opposite. While I thinq they had the best intentions, almost every set of sequels filmed back to back have been sorely lacking imo. Hopefully the wachowskis will have a better set of fliqs this time.

    by CARTMANEZ

    the too many toi mention flaws of the sequels aside, i was waiting for a cool twist at the end of Revolutions - e.g. if itd had all been revealed to be a drug induced hallucination from when he swallowed the red pill from Morpehous in part 1 (tieing in with the end of Alice in WL which the film frequently references)... A new mind drug that targets your secret fantasys and makes them seem real to you - in this case a boring office geek think hes kung fu kicking saviour of mankind in a Terminator-esque future...a wishful fantasy that many a Sci Fi obsessed geek secretly yearns for (wouldve tied in with all the Anderson asleep scenes in the first part of the movie) or maybe - at the end we find out that the real world was also a matrix within the matrix (hence why he could use his powers outside the matrix at the end of part 2) - last scene of the 3rd film is Neo asleep in another pod....he never left the matrix . They could have called Matrix Reloaded - Matrix ‘2’ (matrix within a matrix) and Matrix Revolutions - Matrix ‘3’ (as that film could have dealt with the matrix within a matrix within a matrix) - as Morpheous says in Matrix 1 - I’ll show you how deep the rabbit hole goes…. Anything twisty and Twilight Zoney like that really - id have liked that instead of the stupid Aliens rip off playing everything straight like a typical boring action movie - starring Mrs Will Smith (cos along with Link and his wife that’s who were were REALLY interested in seeing right?) In fact some of the stuff and ideas in Inception was along the lines of what i was hoping to see in the matrix sequels....

    Didn't have a hit since the Matrix movies?

    by Johnno

    They only actually got involved in making one movie following Matrix 2/3, which bombed, undeservedly I might add, as Speed Racer was bloody brilliant. The other two films they were involved in were V for Vendetta, which did well enough, and rumors that they had some hand or the other in Ninja Assassin, which was shit, but that was mostly McT's fault. But other than Speed Racer I've seen no other major attempts on their part to try and aim for a Matrix like hit. I don't think even they were expecting that from Speed Racer, other than it doing resonably well enough for a campy anime adaptation. All I'm saying is that saying they haven't had a hit since the Matrix under this sort of context is a pretty poor attempt at a put down... Try the one where one of them is an alleged transvestite. That one seems to work better without really saying anything at all...

    Matrix Sequels... Not THAT Bad

    Do it! The Matrix Retconned!

    by Laserbrain

    This is the first time a sequel or sequels can effectively and organically be written off as the hero's "bad dream". If Neo never left the Matrix (as suggested by the fact he retained his powers and that Smith was able to follow him into "the real world") then maybe he never really died - he just got his avatar rebooted. This premise has been popular fanwank/justification/wishful thinking for years now but it could make for a legitimately interesting continuation of the series if the whole gargantuan and improbable (not to mention dull) war with the machines was revealed to be just another video game to con the humans into accepting pacification.

    Matrix Reloaded/Inception

    by CARTMANEZ

    building on what i was saying at the end of my previous post - -Just after the Matrix came out I surfed the web looking for clues as to what the Matrix sequel would be like (like Neo trying to figure out what the matrix was in the first movie) I found a blog that supposdly gave away spoilers to Matrix Reloaded. Almost everything I saw in inception I remember reading on this blog in around 2000. Needless to say the real Matrix Reloaded was just an action movie with no real plot and nothing in Inception resembles Reloaded. in the blog the writer told how there would be a Matrix with-in the matrix and that Neo and Trinity and the team would travel down many levels of the matrix. The further they would travel, the more time would phase in between levels of the matrix‘s. Neo, Trinity and the team learned to have more power in the lower levels and trinity learns how to fold space with her mind. Just like how Ellen Page folded the city in Inception. The team learn to walk among agents and fool them into thinking they were in pods in the power plants. But certain actions would awaken agents and make them suspicious. Just like the people projections in Inception. One other thing. In this blog it stated that Trinity was actually an agent and was leading Neo and the team to their doom. --- the situation with Mal is a little similar...

    The Second Rennaisance

    by lv_426

    The 2-part Animatrix episodes of The Second Rennaisance, about the rise of the machines and their city Zero One is the best part of the Matrix-verse that could be expanded into a feature film. Maybe do two films, the first one focusing on the war and downfall of mankind, then the second one could show the early versions of the matrix and humanity's enslavement in it. Otherwise, unless they are going to start fresh with new characters and set these new films after Revolutions, I just don't see much need to bring back Neo. And I'm a big fan of all three films and the Animatrix too. I just don't want the matrix films to end up like the Star Wars prequels, or see unnecessary sequels that don't add anything worthwhile to the overall mythos of the series (examples: T3, Salvation, Alien Resurrection, Indy 4).

    As in David Mitchell's Man Booker winning novel? I don't see how the hell the Wachowski's can make a novel close in epic scale to a religious text into a film? That has to be an HBO Miniseries or something. They're completely wrong for it!

    Cloud Atlas -- great book

    by Raymond Shaw

    I read "Cloud Atlas" by David Mitchell a few years ago. It's a pretty unique type of book -- a blend of thriller, sci-fi, historical romance, set over a span of 5 or 6 centuries. It's hard to imagine it being filmed, but a check at IMDB says Tom Twyker, Ian McKellen, Tom Hanks and Natalie Portman are now connected with it.

    Best way to retcon the Matrix sequels

    by Nerd Rage

    Is to show Neo comatose, still plugged in. The machines created a seperate, alternate Matrix where Neo believed he fought and sacrificed himself after agreeing to a peace treaty but it was all a lie. Somehow Neo needs to escape the alternate matrix world and help awaken a new generation of human batteries being used by the original Matrix reality. Spend at least 3 years honing the script make it a mind bending journey with tricks and turns along the way and you might finally have a sequel worthy of the original.

Speaking of I watched matrix1 & 2 back2back on tnt and man the first had so much more to offer than the sequel. I get the philosophy and themes but really the cinematography, script and acting was so dull and bland compared to the original. Morpheus looked fatter and kept sucking in his cheeks for some reason. The exposition scene with neo and oracle was way to cryptic. "We're all here to do what we're all here to do." what the fuck oracle?

    The Matrix Remixed

    by RaySquirrel

    As a fan of the Matrix movies I would like the Wachowskis to leave well enough alone. The only way I would like to see two more Matrix films in 3d is if they were remakes of the original movies. 2d to 3d conversions are pretty much reviled so that is what I would imagine the Wachowsks would do. I actually have been working on a fan edit of Reloaded and Revolutions, editing them into one 2-3 hour film, and incorporating scenes used in the video game and the animated movies. I call it 'The Matrix Remixed'. I've got a number of clips on YouTube at the link below: http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=US#/view_playlist?p=058A09104057A4D7

    Matrix 4= X-Men 4

    by jmac4ever

    After the ambitious, yet still disappointing, Revolutions, I'm of the mindset that we deserve another Matrix film that lives up to the promise of the first. The most exciting part of the first Matrix was the last few moments, when we're teased with the idea that Neo is about to free several people from the Matrix himself. That's what was really exciting. The whole Neo flying bit was just icing on that cake. However, the sequels seemed more fixated on his powers then the human story that was told to get him to his powers. When Revolutions ended and we were left with a peace between the two sides, I personally felt jipped because the first film left us to believe that the endgame wasn't peace, it was freedom. And let's not even talk about the Looney Toons cartoon that Neo was stuck in for the first twenty minutes. Reloaded got a little off course, but it still left us with a lot to be excited about. Revolutions deflated that excitement with poor story decisions. As someone else said, the Matrix ceased to be a functioning world and became a set piece. The only real saving grace is that the ending left plenty questions to be explored, the most important being "What happens when the machines get too weak from letting humans go free?" The Matrix 4 is actually, unlike other unecessary sequels, highly necessary to restore the franchise back to its original praise and wash the bad taste of Revolutions out of the mouths of the mainstream public. And no, it's not because I didn't "get" it. I got it. I just didn't like it. Much like X-Men 3. The Last Stand was nothing compared to its previous installments and I find it hard to believe anyone thinks otherwise. Singer leaving that franchise was destructive not only to the X-Men films, but the Superman films as well as they're only NOW working on another film for that character. I think this is something Singer realizes as well which is why he is producing First Class and very likely to return to make another X-Men film of his own once his current movie is done filming. Thankfully, much like Revolutions, X3 made it possible for most, if not all, of the plot points in the film to be undone so making a proper X-Men 3 under the guise of X-Men 4 won't be that difficult and we can finally get a proper film that lives up to the quality of the first two. There are unnecessary sequels and their are chances for redemption. I think, in the case of the Matrix, we're looking at the latter. If Keanu actually made the statements this article claims he did, I think he sees it that way as well.

    In a way I feel I'm owed another Matrix film.

    by SebastianHaff

    For such a visually groundbreaking series, and for as intelligent and quirky as the Wachowskis are, there's some real lame ass cliche bullshit in that trilogy, and I'd really love for them to revisit this fascinating universe they've created, and weed out all the BS. Things that are fucking stupid about The Matrix: <br><p> The Council. There was a time in the early 2000's where I think every science fiction/fantasy film had to have a Council of elders, and it's fucking lame and fucking cliche. LOTR'S, the Prequels, Matrix, etc. Boring boring BORING. The whole Zion thing was stupid. <br><p> Why do people in the future always wear fucking togas and wizard's robes? LAME. Ditch that shit! <br><p> The Prophecy and the Chosen One. I realize this is a classic plot device, but I feel that's just a nice way of saying played out, overused, and tired. I never want to see another movie where the main character was prophesied billions of years ago to save the day. It's not mysterious or cool. It's childish, unimaginative, and boring. <br><p> FUCK THE ORACLE. It's bad enough to shove all your exposition down my throat all at once, but quit trying to be all philosophical about it. I don't mimd being forced to think, the problem is that the psychobabble in the last two films was unintentionally hilarious. "Am I real?" "I don't know. ARE you real? Is anything real? Did I even REALLY ask you that? Can you PROVE I'm even here?" Get the fuck out with that shit. I thought there was an impending apocalypse? Are we really going to dick around at the end of the world with fortune cookie riddles? Just seems silly. Maybe that shit works in anime, but sometimes I feel like The Matrix wears its influences a little too obviously on its sleeve. <br><p> None of the silliness of it all would really bother me if it didn't seem like the filmmakers so desperately wanted the series to be taken seriously.

    by justmyluck

    ...in the R-rated Samurai thing. We'll see how that evolves. As for the ever-polarizing 2-part MATRIX sequels, I really enjoyed particular sequences (even the labored multi-religious & philosophical infusions). RELOADED and REVOLUTIONS admittedly fell short dramatically, and I think the W's exhausted that world and its characters with three feature-length treatments. I think the only way they can continue with Keanu there is as a new cyber-human god-like being (shades of LITTLE BUDDHA) and, I mean, how seriously are we supposed to take that? People seem to dismiss V FOR VENDETTA, and IMO that rocked, even though technically not directed by the W's. SPEED RACER needed major editing, but I appreciated how the W's used CGI to such overload levels it gave even animé a run for the money. ROCKET ROBIN HOOD has been done already as a cartoon - I bet WB didn't know that when they forked over the penta-million. CLOUD ATLAS is an adaptation of the novel, and it will be interesting if the W's can pull that off without gong episodic like the ANIMATRIX. COBALT NEURAL 9 seems to also be progressing on the hush-hush, so the W's are quite busy. I wonder if they will ever appear in public again (and if that has anything to do with Larry's 0-+/0-> on IMDB). http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0905154/

    They should totally just do The Second Renaissance...

    by thecomedian

    And expand on it to make a 3 prequel trilogy. Neo's story has been told. The only way they bring him back is to make his some Kevin Flynn-like aberration in the Matrix...and yeah we've been there already. Though Tron basically stole the Merovingian and Persephone and dressed them up as David Bowie and a very fuckable Tinkerbell lookalike. So these two franchises are fine with ripping each other off. But a second renaissance movie would be awesome. Pretty much the best Terminator movie never made. 1st film could be the war with the machines. Second film could introduce The 1st perfect Matrix, The Architect and The Oracle(I always suspected she's the narrator of the anime). Second film ends with the 1st version of The One discovering his abilities. Third film has The One unplug himself and begin the new war with the Machines ending with The Architect reseting everything after Zion falls and The original version of The One fails.

And I spent weeks on the IMBD boards taking on those racists, condemning them for their racism and for discrediting those of us legitimately fighting against the crooked "remake." The Karate Kid is a title you don't rip off or misrepresent to sell tickets or promote your kid who has yet to earn such a starring role. I would be just as furious if Tom Cruise or Michael Douglas had done the same thing. You know how I know you two are morons? Despite my well-articulated arguments against the Karate Kid "remake," you accuse me of racism. I didn't even make a reference to race, but you two simpletons had no other rebuttal but a bogus allegation of racism. How about some counter-arguments, you morons?

    The Matrix Rebooted

    by hulkiest

    You could even call it that and as crass as it sounds, it wouldn't be totally unacceptable given the premise. Because, yeah, those sequels are TERRIBLE and those who say that we 'simpletons' don't get them, remind me of Tim Meadows in The Dewey Cox story telling his band mates: "You guys are idiots! This song is deep!" Reloaded has that awful, embarrassing rave (and yeah the guy who said the Zion council was straight out of Star Trek was dead on, right down to the crappy asymmetric shirts.) and then topped by overlong exposition scene with Colonel Sanders where they go about trying to sound academic and impressive basically talking about free will vs. predestination. Zzzzz.... And then Revolutions has some of the worst and lamest plodding action scenes as two boring Zion theater dorks try to take out one squid. Meanwhile the filmmakers fall into the "fx dork with a computer" CGI trap of creating so many powerful enemies that our heroes can't possibly win. And yet our heroes win! ("I can't believe the Ewoks won the war!") Ugh! Just recounting that mediocrity gives me shivers. So, yeah, they should really just have a beginning with those zeros and ones and have Mr. Anderson wake up from a dream back in his old hacker bedroom again. And the sequels are basically The Matrix all over again, with the added gimmick that Neo keeps saying, "This is awfully familiar". or "how can the same shit happen to the same guy twice?" Actually, maybe they should just forget about it and realize The Matrix was really a one shot. Like Die Hard and Predator. And Speed. Really there are no good trilogies. Star Wars was an almost, Back To The Future was an almost. (Both had sucky third movies, admit it.) Most movies don't merit sequels. And even when they do, like Iron Man, they disappoint.

    I have to say, there is some pretty good discussion going on here regarding the Matrix. I agree with a lot of what you guys vare saying, its true that the sequals are flawed, and did nt really live up to what the first film promised. But I still give the Wachowskis a lot of credit for not dumbing it down, and you can at least see a ton of ambition there. I think they successfully pushed things in some areas but very much failed in others. Turd, in your estimation, who has gotten the two sequals back to back right? If you had to choose between TBTTF sequals, the POTC sequals, or the Matrix sequals? Who do you think came closest? And why?

    The Matrix etc.

    by NightArrows

    The first one is a fantastic film with an insane level of re-watchability. Now, the second film, taken on it's own, is pretty fucking great IMO. Great action, Neo kicks things up a notch or three, really enjoyed each new addition (with the exception of the albino twat twins, possibly the lamest "cool characters" ever). I even loved the cliffhanger ending with the slow pan and crescendo of music, cut to credits. Reloaded offers some really interesting directions that the third film could take. And that's where the problem lies. The third film simply didn't deliver, IMO. If you want to cite that I "didn't get it", you can, but after leaving the theatre and discussing what we'd just seen, I'm pretty sure we all understood what had taken place and why. But that doesn't make it a good film. There are interesting elements to it, but most of the third movie is simply "too much". Too much of that idiot in the power suit screaming and shooting, shooting and screaming. Too much of the Neo/Smith fight, too much of Morpheus being driven around like Miss Daisy with nothing to do. The discussion can go on and on...but my point is that I loved the first two, taken as a set, but as a trilogy I think it's third act really breaks the magic created with the first film and breaks the promises, spoken or not, that Reloaded gave us. Regarding another two films? I don't know. I'll see them, but I'm willing to bet the well is either dry or the Wachowski's bucket won't reach the good stuff at the bottom. As for a samurai film, I say fuck yeah! Go and watch Sword of Doom for an awesome samurai flick. Too bad they couldn't have finished the second and third film...

    First "Matrix", then Will

    by Hipshot

    First Matrix was wonderful, unreal. And deeply philosophical, with roots going back thousands of years to Tibetan Buddhism. Resonated wonderfully. The sequels were awful and pretentious. I have no enthusiasm for these new ones, but if they've got something to say, I'll check 'em out. ## Please keep complaining about Will Smith. It's good to know who's easily intimidated. Oh! And be sure to make ghetto references so that we know how you sort reality: he's not tall, or athletic, or rich, or funny, or skilled. To you, he's black. And you can't quite handle it, can ya?

    Warners hasn't had a hit since "The Matrix"?

    by Fa_Tass_DinoMolester

    What about The Dark Knight and the Harry Potter series? <p> The Samurai film, BTW, is "47 Ronin" directed by Carl Erik Rinsch. <p> More Matrix could work, if it's closer to the first, and not the second and third. The problem with the sequels is that the creators got carried away with "wowing" people with their "epic, important" universe and special effects and forgot to make it fun and center on likable characters...same exact thing that happened on the SW prequels. <p> That, and has there EVER been an instance of a first film being a hit, followed by two sequels shot back-to-back working out? Back to the Future 2 + 3, Pirates 2 + 3...not really a good track record, and don't have any confidence that the Avatar sequels will break the pattern. <p> PS, Keanu Reeves is a girl and Carrie Ann Moss is a man with a large mustache, and Lawrence Fishburne has a 4-inch gap between his front teeth.

    I Loved Parts Of Speed Racer, But It's Not A Good Film

    by NeonFrisbee

    The three-part race in the middle is such a dead-on perfect realization of the anime in live-action, it makes the negatives -- like the slow pacing, over-melodrama, and awkward exposition (which I suspect was supposed to mirror how the villains spoke in the original, English dubbed series) -- not quite as irritating. I saw it in IMAX twice, own the dvd. It's flawed, but as a life long fan of the original series, I liked it.

    Reloaded = Awesome / Revolutions = Frustrating

    by mooseaka

    I loved, no... LOVED Reloaded. I loved the action scenes. I loved the new layers of mythology that challenged everything we assumed after the first movie. I loved the music (particularly Chateau Fight). I loved the Architect scene. I loved the new concepts (prior "Ones", a program in a human body, rogue programs that were also hiding out in the Matrix). I am one of the few who would have to flip a coin to choose between Reloaded and the original movie. Revolutions... so frustrating: -Not enough Neo! He is missing for huge stretches of movie and only has one Matrix fight (the climax). -Not enough Matrix! Take out the fight at the end, and there was only about 20 minutes of movie that takes place in the Matrix. -Too much time spent with third, or even four tier characters on Zion. -Morpheus was a bitch for the whole movie. Didn't offer anything except to be bossed around by Jada Pinkett Smith. He should have died when the Neb was destroyed (more heroic and symbolic). -The whole Merovingian sex club scene was gratuitous and not very interesting. -The resolution of the Smith story was too confusing. -The whole thing ends on a truce, which is not very satisfying on any level. -This isn't the fault of the movie, but the trailers really should not have revealed that Neo makes it to the machine city. That was a killer. His exchange with the Deus Ex Machina is the first scene of the final theatrical trailer, and is a damn shame. Ha - I bet nobody cares about all this. But it was fun to write.

    No, yourstepdad

    by The Krypton Kid

    But I did attend President Obama's inauguration along with over a million of his other biggest supporters. You, you were probably at home with your hand in your pants, getting a finger full of yourself (because you know you don't have anything between your legs which would require a handful), gratifying yourself while at the same time calling anyone who doesn't like Will Smith a racist, you pathetic schill. Thing is, I used to like Will Smith plenty. The Fresh Prince is one of my favorite shows of all time and I used to be one of his consumate defenders around here. I saw him as a man of tremendous comedic and dramatic talent, but now I see him as a crooked self-promoter, a modern Tom Cruise who misrepresented a film franchise which is precious to me. But to a plebe like you, any cross words about the Smith family Karate Kid "remake" is equivalent to racism. Clearly you're a man whose got more going on behind his rectum than he does inside his skull. What you are, dung-for-brains, is a closet racist: Someone who breaks everything down in terms of race so to give meaning to his pathetic, feeble, meaningless existance. All you have in your poor excuse of a life is your Internet porn and misguided indignation. Hey, whatever gets you off, parnter. Didn't you call me gay earlier? I would call you a homophobe for that, but I know you're just a schmuck who randomly thows around insults, too stupid to put any meaning behind them. Oh, and I've dated multiple women who happen to be black, as I have dated multiple women who happen to be white, Asian, and Hispanic. You should try going out with a real woman sometime; I'm sure your mom is tired of feeling ashamed when she has to run your socks through the wash twice to get the semen stains out of them.

    Possible titles fo Matrix 4

    That was interesting article to read. So the Watchowskis are looking to make a "Matrix 4" in 3D? Well seeing how I loved the first Matrix (and still do) and felt completlely and utterly cheated and ripped off by who horrible the 2 sequels were and how the Wachowski Brothers ruined what could have been an epic Trilogy... Here are some of the Titles I cam up with for Matrix 4 in 3D.... Matrix 4: "We the Wachowski Brothers want to apologize to you Matrix Fans for the terrible 2 sequels we made you watch" Matrix 4: "It can't possibly be any worse than the previous two sequels" Matrix 4: "The first two sequels were just a mindfuck...you were actually IN the Matrix itself!

    Meh for Matrix sequels

    by catlettuce4

    I never saw the Matrix sequels even though I liked the first. Or because I liked the first. At the end, I knew there was nowhere worthwhile it could go in a sequel, as Neo flying in front of everyone, along with his god-like powers and ability to destroy Smith and make agents run, meant the rest of the story was allready spelled out for us. It mystified me when the 2nd one was getting people so hyped... there was no point to the characters or story anymore, so it was clearly just going to be inventing and changing established details from the 1st movie to make more money. The backlash by so many just proves it was the wrong thing to do, especially by the time part 3 came out. What they apparently did for the sequels was change the setup from the first and turn everything on it's ear, and I've no interest in that. I'm also not going to see a Matrix 4 or 5.

    Oh, and Bill and Ted

    by catlettuce4

    The first was basically perfect. The tone of the second was off, but it's enjoyable enough I guess, and shows how the future world came to be. There's the problem: the future we saw in the first movie has come to pass, it's over. Nowhere to go without changing the mythos. It was a GREAT idea for a film, and the first worked like a charm, but it's done now. They aren't teens anymore, and it's not the late 80's-early 90's. Bill and Ted cannot be Bill and Ted as we remember them. Carlin is dead. Those adventures had their time, and a third can only be a disappointment.

    Second Renaissance Animation is Mind-Blowing

    by Autodidact

    I think that maybe a "bookend" set of movies would work... the first one basically showing the events of Second Renaissance, and the second one showing what happens after the Matrix has been rebooted with new rules about the treatment of awakened people.

    HOOD based on DC series OUTLAWS from '91?

    by Dan Halen

    At least I'm guessing this is based on that series. I was in middle school but I remember loving it at the time. I'll have to dig it up. Six issue mini series. Dystopian England of the future, a man named Hood rises to prominence. That's all I remember. It was very bloody and violent though. "Gritty and Edgy" at the dawn of the comic era of "Gritty and Edgy!"

    Sad that this is not true...

    by Billyeveryteen

    Great TB, here's my 2 cents. Really loved The Matrix. Seeing it fresh with a clueless crowd was pure bliss. That collective shit we all took as Neo "woke up", what fun. But boy-howdy, did I have a problem with the sequels. So Neo is essentially a god who can stop bullets, fly, and "enter" an agent, yet we're right back to chop-socky and aw-shucks timidness? Oldy McOld Girlfriend and Black Obi-Wan became sad afterthoughts? Much less fun. Huge fan of Speed Racer as a kid. The first 15 minutes with Rex's ghost car was fucking awesome, then the flicks crashes headfirst a wall of exposition and poorly conceived antagonists. Those races are mint, tho'. Oh and more Bill&Ted is always welcome. It would be most triumphant.

    Finds it humorous that people were actually entertained...

    by MajorFrontbum

    by the Matrix. It was over top ridiculousness, but violent and trendy enough, for 16 year olds to lose loads over. They obviously weren't prepared for any sequels, as they were made up as they went along. Now a fourth part, merely to exploit the 3D technology. They might save face, if they turn it into a spoof. Break out the canned laughter, Neo is going to be climbing walls and dodging chicken pellets again.

    Matrix 2-3 were pseudo-smart

    by kevred

    All flash and surface, full of outrageously pointless fake-philosophic babbling, but really just cobbled-together nonsense with tiresomely self-serious, ponderous tone (a forced substitute for actual substance) weighing everything down. It's not that no one got it except geeks who style themselves as possessing secret wisdom; it's that no wisdom was present, and some were duped. In my opinion, at least. Which was sad, because the first one was great - energetic, fresh, surprising, clever, and just rooted enough in the "real" world to give it some gravity. The sequels, and the similarly timed SW prequels, are a fine warning about not leaving well enough alone on a grand scale.

    That was my first hearty laugh for this morning. Thank you, my friend. "The path of neo is changed, which has provoked the Machine mainframe. Neo realizes that this is all a game, mainframe on other hand has plan of it’s own to destroy the matrix and Zion, once and for all. The only way to stop the machine is to reprogram the mainframe itself..." And it goes on like that. Hysterical.

    The Matrix sequels were not pseudo-smart, they were proper smart. Too often people call pseudo-smart to stuff they can't keep up. Too often people call pseudo-smart to stuff that makes them feel dumber and ignorant. It must swoot their ego thinking like that. The Matrix sequels, for all their perceived faults, they are smart movies. Their fault, if be, is due to the scripts not being as polished as the first. But then again, the first movie had a script being writen and re-writen for 7 years. The sequels couldn't afford that much time, it went from first draft to production in less then two years. It does make a difference. The differences between the first Matrix movie and it's sequels is not a question of smarts, inteligence and delivery, but a matter of script polishing. The first movie had the edge.

    i would love to see two more Matrix films

    by Smack_Teddy

    where they nail it rather than drop the ball like on the last two<p> i agree with Asi in some respects, the sequels were actually were smart thought out films with quite a bit to say under the surface...but they completely scrwewed it up as a piece of audio-visual storytelling on the surface, plotting, characters, where The Matrix fused these near perfectly and knocked it out the park... while he's right about them in his analysis i beleive (you can find his, others essays on Martix, Plato & Cave, Polis etc, and his perverts guide on DVD), Matrix films shouldnt be the kind that need Slavoj Zizek or somebody with an encyclopedic & deep knowledge/understanding of greek up to modern philosophy etc to explain them, they should speak purely and wonderfully through the audio-visuals to the audience themselves, like the first movie did.

    not sure I like the idea of more movies though. I'd prefer (non-3D) re-release for a Matrix marathon for its 15th anniversary or some such. Definitely, not liking the idea of a sci-fi Robin Hood with Will Smith. Next thing Will Smith would be doing would be "Sherlock Homie In Space" I'd rather the Wachowskis did a new "new thing".
