I think one was enough.

Flappyhead: I think one was enough.


I don't know, maybe if they added some vampires and made Neo have supernatural powers outside the matrix. And some good dance scenes.
Plus, it wouldn't hurt to have a couple more Agent Smiths, especially if they can travel to the 'real' world.

There was more than one Matrix movie?

Ah. I was wondering what they would be called these days. Definitely takes some getting used to.
 
2014-03-02 08:42:22 PM
I know it's not a popular consensus, but I enjoyed the sequels. They weren't as good as the first film, but that was a tough act to follow.

I would definitely be down for seeing some more.

The Animatrix was cool enough, especially the second renaissance. I dunno if a prequel could work. I would like to see where a sequel goes. Will the machines honor the truce? Will society begin to rebuild? Will Neo ever reappear? These are questions worth exploring IMO.

What?  That's crazy talk.  Next you'll insist they recycle the lobby shootout and throw in even more thick dialogue.

Indeed. There's no need for any "Dark City" sequels.

The Animatrix was great, and all the prequel needed. The story doesn't need any more telling IMHO, it's only being made because Warner Bros. needs more money. Personally, I'll pass.
 
2014-03-02 08:48:14 PM
The Animatrix was easily better than the two sequels to the Matrix, so going the animated route could work.
 
2014-03-02 08:52:14 PM
The search for more money?

Thats a subjective question. Sorry the whole premise of the Matrix is insanely stupid. A horrible world full plot holes and spelling errors. The first trilogy let us not forget was made popular by the cohort who made Twatanic one of the highest grossing films of all time before you start braying about how much money it made.
 
2014-03-02 08:53:46 PM
The ONLY way I could see this working is if they went back to the beginning of the war...but that was The Terminator, wasn't it?

I enjoyed the original Trilogy...the 2nd and 3rd disappointed because they never really answered any of the cool questions that were opened up in the first.  It was more like, "Hey, look over here...cool effects and explosions and stuff!"
 
2014-03-02 09:00:20 PM
WB:  There are Matrix sequels coming.

NEO:  Do you already know if people will go see them?

WB:  Wouldn't be much of a movie studio if I didn't, would I?

NEO:  But if you already know, how can they make a choice?

"The Matrix" was a fun ride, more interesting and far better executed than I had expected from the commercials. Sure, it had plot holes you could drive a semi through (humans as batteries? Why not just burn the carbohydrates without wasting them on humans?), but it had style, pacing and elan.

The second one was okay until the rave scene. Then it got kinda silly. And then it got kinda dumb. And then it just sucked. The Merovingian, the Twins, the whatever, the second whatever, okay, man I'm bored.

The third one was a war movie, but not a very interesting one, and nobody cared, and everyone died, and well, that was $7 wasted.

I recently watched Reloaded and Revolutions for the first time since seeing them in the cinema in 2003. I don't think they're <I>bad</I> movies, just a bit dumb and not as cohesive as good as the first. The audiovisual style the Wachowskis created still holds up really well though and the highway scene in Reloaded is awesome.

It's a shame that the sequels have soured the rep of the original though - it's still a phenomenal film in its own right. Though I must say some of the kung-fu scenes have dated compared to the visceral, post Bourne/Avengers style of action we have in movies today. Oddly enough I think it's the more basic elements of film-making (mise en scene, costumes, music, pacing) that still shine even 15 years later and should allow The Matrix to continue to age well.

/yeah yeah I know the whole humans as batteries is fundamentally stupid and impossible, but I don't mind sci-fi films where you are asked to just take a mental leap of faith on some things to enjoy it.

Video game idea I've had:

The Matrix -- The Agent.

Deus Ex-style game where you play as a prototype "Alpha" agent in post-Neo Matrix, looking for a new threat to the system that your predecessors would not be able to ... evaluate properly, and deal with rogue humans and programs. You'll get rule-bending/breaking powers, as well as the ability to possess a human in the real world at one point, as well as hijack a squid.

The game opens as you "form" your character sitting on a private jet landing at an airport, with two voices advising you of your duties and goal, before you disembark and enter a car with two resentful previous version agents.

Whether you choose status quo, a brave new world, go rogue or deduct Smith was right all along, is up to you.

No, it wasn't a tough act to follow. Neo lost his powers between 1 and 2. The second movie didn't follow from the first. At all. They missed their own point. Cypher saw code as the images they would display. Neo saw the images as code. He broke the system. Then the sequel rolls around, and everything misses the point.

FTFA: Several years later, we got two 'Matrix' sequels back to back. And while those two were no where near the caliber of the first film, they were still fun, and became a solid trilogy. Now it seems the Warner Bros. and the Wachowski siblings are developing more 'Matrix' films.

In the original script, human brains were the source of the AI. They needed human brains to act as computers. However, thanks to executive meddling, that plotline was dropped. (And yes, I did just send you all down the rabbit hole with that tvtropes link.) That was one of the biggest plotholes of the movies, but it was never meant to be one.

Everything from the start of Neo's fight with the Merovingian's goons to the end of the freeway scene is amazing.

I like it.  Now by post-Neo do you mean after Revolutions?  I'd be fascinated to see how machines and humans would interact in the wake of it.
 
2014-03-02 09:25:37 PM
Maybe they'll use the fan theory that the "real world" is actually a second level of the Matrix, thus explaining Neo's new powers.
 
2014-03-02 09:27:22 PM
Well, there are several more Dune books out there to borrow ideas from.

Machines taking over humans, prophecies of the chosen one,  the chosen one can do super-fast martial arts,the chosen one sacrifices his lover to achieve to continue on his path for the greater good, the chosen one loses his eyesight, but can still "see" with hollow eye sockets through some form of prescience, the chosen one must ultimately sacrifice himself.

Perhaps the new films can have women that enslave men through fantastic sex or there's God Emperor with really small genitalia or something.

The only thing I have enjoyed from Disney owning almost all the legacy movie IP is that the other Movie Studios have had to look for new ideas to bring to the screen.

Then this happens...

Yeah, it's kind if surprising that they only made 2 movies and a TV series out of the Terminator franchise. There's a lot more to be explored there.

/ well, there was a comic book where Robocop was a predecessor to Skynet. Might as well work him into the Matrix as well.
 
2014-03-02 09:47:28 PM
I welcome this. Really only the third one was bad. The second one had mixed reviews, but I regard it as the best movie of the series. The action sequences, the philosophy, and the growth of the characters all were amazing in the second outing . The second movie only seems unconventional and hard to digest for the average American moviegoer. However, it's a pretty great piece of art.
 
2014-03-02 10:07:37 PM
Prequels at least allow for something of a new start.  Keanu is ageless, so they can still bring him on at some point no problem.
 
2014-03-02 10:11:55 PM
I notice they are avoiding the use of the word "reboot".

Kept it ambiguous since there is that Matrix Online lore that might have muddled things (if I recall correctly, Morpheus died, one of the albinos too, and spoon bender kid became a free-all-the-humans zealot leader), not to mention the hate for the sequels.

Cannot be anywhere as bad as the Star Wars prequels.

Cloud Atlas was pretty great.

I still believe they can make good movies, but can a movie saddled with all of the baggage that "The Matrix" carries really succeed?

sequels perhaps inevitable

RockofAges: God, I hate sci-fi literalists. "Derp, human beings could never be batteries".

Yeah, and Star Trek has about 10,000 errors an episode "scientifically speaking". Nobody farking cares. Harlan Ellison's story "I Have No Mouth But I Must Scream" surely presents a conundrum for the aspie crowd, yet it remains one of the most striking and notable examples of horror / sci-fi in the short form.

Science fiction is about concepts, ideas, empathetic "what if" scenarios, so on and so forth. Not pedantic physics equations. Sure, there's a niche of hard sci fi fellators -- you won't find me among them.

/Chicks don't dance to differential equations.
//The Matrix was a great movie, the sequels merely just enjoyable. Animatrix also cool. Will watch new ones if they bring back Keanu.


This bears repeating.

The first one was a revelation. The second and third were flawed but still quite enjoyable. Some of you just need to sit back and enjoy the ride instead of white-knuckling over silly logistical fallacies.
 
2014-03-02 10:57:12 PM
While I enjoyed the first matrix I want to comment on something.  When they are breaking into that building to save morpheus, I don't see why they couldn't rely more on stealth than brute force.
