The Matrix: Resurrections

Tools    





I would suspect that the check for John Wick is bigger than for Neo, and it probably comes with a no shave/haircut clause.
I agree, he needed to be shaved and have a haircut, maybe they aren t showing us in the trailer, could be a distinct possibility

I really don't think they should have brought Neo back. I hate this whole death fake out Hollywood has been doing lately, like they did with some other franchises, where you think characters are dead, but then they aren't. They just can't stick to their guns and commit.



Movie Forums Extra
I honestly don’t like to watch reworked films, this already turns out to be completely different from the movie that I liked



From what I hear the official premiere of the new "Matrix" on 123movies will take place in December of this year. So soon we will know what is really there. I have a mixed opinion about this movie. I've seen the first parts and was thrilled. And on the one hand I'll be glad to see the sequel. But on the other hand after so many years to shoot it again. I think it's not going to be the same atmosphere. I've also heard that:
- There's a rumor that The Matrix will continue as a big-budget TV series.
- "The Matrix 4" and other WB blockbusters will be available to watch at home on premiere day.
- Fans caught a nearly bald Keanu Reeves on the set of "The Matrix 4" .

Bald Keanu Reeves still looks amazing !!!

I am getting the whole "Dredging up another old franchise as an obvious cash grab, and we will **** all over it in the process" vibe.

This has all happened before, and sadly, will all happen again.

RIP originality.

...again.
the way I see it is, I survived Reloaded and Revolutions. I'm just good with a probably decent sci-fi coming out.

I tried watching those again recently, and I didn't make it through. The first is still a good watch, so I enjoyed that. I am just not falling for this **** again. Trash all the heroes and concepts from the originals while propping up cardboard cutout replacements with no character arcs. The Matrix philosophy was already half-baked, I can only imagine what we get in this.



Welcome to the human race...
This from the guy with 2049 in his top ten...

There are exceptions to every rule, and 2049 is most certainly that. 2049 respects and enhances the original material and characters, with Villeneuve treating the material with obviously respect and care. I am not alone in thinking this.

Agree with every word. 2049 is a phenomenal film and exceptions prove the rule.

As someone who has watched the entire trilogy more times than I care to admit...you are not wrong.

I mean, aside from the whole trans thing, I kept watching them over and over because I was half expecting I was missing something. I was knee deep in the philosophy they used to write them at the time, and it was barely even a scratch to the surface. I still watch them from time to time because they invoke memories, and not because they are even half way decent. Although, that dock fight scene has aged pretty well considering and is definitely a must see at least once.

Yeah, but why'd it have to be so long? xD

My take is that the director wanted a slow burn that would allow for the existential dread to sort of seep into the viewer. When I watch the film now, the only scene that sort of drags for me is K's visit to the orphanage when he finds the horse. Otherwise, it moves along just fine.

I won't go into more detail than that in an off-topic thread, though. Here, I will try to link the films up:

2049: ****'s too red - needs more green!



I'll likely eventually watch it just to see the special effects and fight scenes, which are always impressive. From the trailer it looks like Matrix has shifted into super hero fare: weak scripts simply designed to link the major special effects scenes together.
