    Went from "Oh no, they went full sequels again" to "What the hell is going on here this is great and confusing and weird and I'm not sure if I love it or hate it" to "ugh, can we stop trying to make everything Star Wars" to "I have no idea what is at stake here and I don't care if they succeed or if that's even possible." 1 month ago

    When The Matrix came out in 1999, it was the essence of cool, combining a then-unfamiliar Hong Kong aesthetic with cutting edge special effects and heady themes. Visually, it was so revolutionary, the sequels could never recapture that impact. Reloaded had a the visuals down, but failed to deliver on story. Revolutions did deliver on story, but by then, the effects failed to impress. By NOW, we're so used to photo-real effects and superhero action, it would be impossible to achieve the same impact, so all I asked of The Matrix Resurrections was that it deliver on story. While there's a part of me who would have enjoyed it even more if they went FULL meta on it and have Keanu play Keanu, or for that matter a more 1970s-style ending, the meta stuff in which Neo has been inserted into another life (or has he?) is my favorite part of the movie. It's funny, clever, satirical, and as John Wick proved, everyone loves sad puppy Keanu. But it IS a Matrix movie, which means a story about destiny, love and freedom. Rising stars Jessica Henwick and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II are very watchable as the new Trinity and Morpheus (so to speak), and there's a bit of cognitive dissonance in putting Neil Patrick Harris and Hamilton's Jonathan Groff in Matrix action. On par with Revolutions (which I know will mean something different to different people), I felt it did deliver a next chapter.However, if you're looking for the ol' "essence of cool", you won't find it. Directorially, it might even be Wachowski's most timid film. 1 month ago

    If you don't go into this movie expecting to feel exactly how Matrix made you feel, chances are that you'll have way more fun!

    Yes, all of the criticism directed towards Resurections is true: it's an unnecessary, meta sequel that will never hold up to the original trilogy.
    But personally, thats why I loved it so much! Contrary to what people seem to think, I believe Lana was fully aware of what kind of movie she was making, and said "fuck it let's just have fun with it" (or at least that's what it felt like).
    Sure it's VERY on the nose, but was Matrix ever known for it's subtlety?

    My recommendation: no need to lower your expectations, just push them aside completely and let yourself get carried by the movie!
