What if I told you there was money in franchises?

A fourth Matrix movie has been in development hell since the Revolutions came out.
 
2021-06-06 2:55:54 PM  
with Keanu Reeves, Carrie Ann-Moss, Jada Pinkett-Smith reprising their roles.

Um... What? I don't really remember #3, but, and Spoilers and all, aren't two of them dead?

Smith was Niobe. A minor character in the movie but a major one in the Reloaded tie in video game.

As for the other two I'm sure the screenwriting wizards in Hollywood will come up with a convincing way to bring their characters back to life. Like their souls being reformed by nanobots or resurrection via sorcerers or they were turned into vampires offscreen or something.

"fans are still excited for the latest entry in the Matrixsaga". Really? All twelve?

The first one was great. For me, the next two were trash.

Maybe if they reboot from the first one?

Just the like The Highlander, any rumors as to the existence of Matrix sequels I just ignore.

There are also only three four Star Wars movies, the original trilogy and the Rogue One prequel.

Well, they GOTTA do something! The last time we saw Neo, he was talking on the phone to some mysterious something and then he flew away. It's about time they decided to continue the story. One Matrix movie is not enough!

If they start from the first and ignore #2 and #3, fine.

They could have him in charge of figuring out how to remove all the adults from the Matrix, given their completely pathological attachment to a delusional fantasy about how the world work while they are treated like cattle.

The allegory to modern politics and TV news kinda writes itself after that.

Keanu's age is catching up with him too; he still looks good, but he's moves stiffly.

Honestly, I wouldn't say no to more Animatrix. Short form stories that don't depend on movie runners that respect the universe but realize it's just fun sci-fi kick punch bang bang.

I'm ok with the concept.... Its physically impossible for it to be any worse than the last 2 films.... And those film-makers have really evolved..... I can't imagine them not putting something worthwhile on screen.

The 13th Floor already made a fine ending to the Matrix series. Simulation within a simulation. Also explains Neo's "real world" powers.

Matrix = winning against the machines to live like a subterranean postapocolyptic rat with minimal food sources.

13th Floor = escape to paradise.

If you really want to get weird, toss in Minority Report. All people trapped in the Matrix world are pre-crime criminals trapped in a simulation.

Then, after escaping the simulation, some prison time Orange is the New Black shower action with the Matrix Ladies...

Then f*ck it. Give the last m

Movie studios and actors like money, Subby.  If someone were willing to pay me $2 million to be in Fast and Furious 10, I would sign in blood.
"What's that?  I singles-handedly defeat drug cartel, run by Jewish lesbian centaurs, with my modded Subaru WRX?  That sounds terrible. I'm in".

Drat. Last movie to D&D, because they need the post GoT work and by that point no one will care.

Coming out of whatever the third Matrix movie, my wife starts acting like one of those mech things, you know, that don't provide any armor to the operators, and goes, "When does the third movie come out?" Because if you went from 1 to 3 there's no way of knowing if you missed anything and there's no closure.

Still the funniest thing ever.
 
2021-06-06 5:14:56 PM  
There is absolutely no need for a fourth Matrix movie.
The first played around with all kinds of philosophical questions about identity and existence.
The second broadened the scope some while not resolving anything that mattered.
The third threw everything out the window in the name of spectacle.
The Wachoswskis basically took a promising premises and completely farking murdered it.
Only reason for a fourth movie is as a cash grab.

The first one WAS great. It also could (and according to rumors was originally supposed to) have been even better.

Unfortunately the best I can find is a rambling reddit fan theory, but the machines using humans as a neural network would have made SO much more sense.

a good friend i believe minored in Film Studies or had it as an emphasis, at least.  his thing was always, "there are films, and then there are movies.  a self-professed Move Snobtm.  Proud of it.

He was shocked I'd never seen The Matrix.  I believe it was a Thanksgiving Weekend around 2005, 2007, whatever.  he basically gave me homework:  the Matrix, Taxi Driver, something else.  I htought Matrix was cool as hell.  Haven't seen it since.

Later, he's like, "Matrix 1 is a perfect film.  Matrix 2 kinda....opened plot lines that were hinted at but didn't really need closure.  Matrix 3 where the farked up the entire timeline.  They should have just left well enough alone.  Instead, they chased the cash and farked up a great movie."

The Highlander sequels were ... near-hit and wide-miss.  Still, always wondered why they skipped Highlander 2 and went straight to 3.

Don't worry, he doesn't wushu anymore. He just shoots people in the head.

We really should have set a new rule after the Matrix trilogy. You only get to do a trilogy after showing a detailed plan of steps 1-2-3. No more of this bull of turning one successful thing into a series. Could have saved ourselves so much heartache.

If people thought like that they wouldn't have released a Doom movie.  Just retitle and re-release Army of Darkness.  And stop the remakes already, ship the [invariably better] original movie.

/sure, Duke Nukem was the one who ripped off Bruce Campbell
//but the Army of Darkness itself (and the chainsaw) were pure Doom
/// slashie III, coming soon to you!

Post Script: If you are thinking about watching a remake, watch the original (or the definitive remake, if already remade more than once).  Hollywood doesn't remake the stuff that should have worked, but failed (which would make sense).  They remake the ones that hit it out of the park, and the odds are against it happening again.

I've seen this type of comment regarding The Quickening posted in a couple of threads.
Is this a meme, a harsh review of the 2nd movie, or something else?
