Movie Poll
 
Once again, curious.

The Truman Show is genius in my opinion.

BuckNaked 05-30-2006 09:08 PM

The mo'****** Matrix biotch.

Hawks, Sox and Bears o my 05-30-2006 09:08 PM

from this list it's the truman show

Vilma the Animal 05-30-2006 09:10 PM

Truman Show was sick, but not better than the first Matrix.

frogstomp 05-30-2006 09:10 PM

I voted Truman Show.

hyundridz 05-30-2006 09:11 PM

what a weird collection of movies that have nothing to do with each other.

wiscbadgerfootball 05-30-2006 09:12 PM

the matrix

DHVF 05-30-2006 09:12 PM

Haven't seen the Truman Show nor Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, so I went with the Matrix.

I don't really see a correlation either.

Hawks, Sox and Bears o my 05-30-2006 09:13 PM

Can someone explain what made the Matrix great? It had a cool idea but the exicution was horrible. I love Fishburn and the chick was great in Memento but The Matrix just seemed so average to me and i've even stopped hating Keanu Reeves recently.

The videography was pretty revolutionary.

Not as mind blowing as Natural Born Killers's was.

Conspiracy. It's obvious in JFK and the Truman Show. The actual 'Matrix' can be considered a conspiracy b/c it basically says we know nothing about the true world. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind fits (if you've seen it) in towards the middle and end. For Ocean's 11, it only really fits in at the end with the double bag switch and the idea of Tess.

Did anyone else think the first matrix was awsome and the rest were just ruined with all this science fiction stuff

I kind of figured it was something like conspiracy but Ocean's Eleven threw me off.

For one thing, it fits the era we were/are entering when it came out, not to mention the Jewish/Christian symbolism is out the roof. [(and it has bullet time) (and Rage Against the Machine fits so perfectly at the end]

Plus the gun scenes are pretty sweet.

Yeah the first Matrix is one of the best movies I have ever seen. After that, the other ones weren't that good.

I'd rank them:

Matrix
Revolutions
Reloaded

If I remember, didn't they release 2 and 3 in like the same week or something?

i recommend you guys to watch the count of monte cristo, and no ones really heard of it... it has a truly awesome story... everyone i told to watch loves it... but warning, the beginning is really slow.

The one with Caviezel or Depardieu?
