I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

Lana Wachowski is set to write and direct a fourth The Matrix film, and Keanu Reeves and Carrie Moss are set to reprise Neo and Trinity. The film tentatively will begin production in early 2020.

Well, Neo did die while connected to the Matrix, so it isn't beyond the realm of possibility he could have transferred his consciousness into the system as a program.

 

As for Trinity... that'd be a good trick.

Guys Neo's the One, he's part of the Source, it's pretty feasible for him to come back.

 

Ironbite-Trinity's a bit harder to swallow unless they go with she's a Machine/Human hybrid from the game.

Unless she didn't actually die, the machines recovered her just after Neo left her to find his way to the, whatever it was he had the talk with and decided to revive/heal her, with Neo, I do kind of agree he could of put his mind into the system but it might of lost his memories that or Neo had a twin brother who ends up with Neo taking over his body! We'll see, but then this could simply be like the greatest comedy sci-if movie never made: "Spaceballs 2, the search for more money!"

I mean, I suppose it's not completely implausible the machines may have got to Trinity and revived her. As anyone who watched The Second Renaissance saw, there are no greater experts in that world on the functioning of the human body (and, by extension, how to repair it) than these machines.

 

Personally, I've always kind of liked to believe that there are a group of free humans living somewhere on that Earth in harmony with the machines, perhaps with their survival aided by the latter's technology. We saw in the Second Renaissance that there were quite a few human protesters that sided with AI and fought for machine rights. Based on what we learned about the machines in that short, I'd like to believe they wouldn't have completely forgotten their human allies.

No thank you.

I mean, the Wachowskis have more critical and financial successes than failures. The Matrix Sequels sucked but made bank. Really, the only project that has really tanked would be Jupiter Ascending (Cloud Atlas didn't tank so much as just...passed on by without much comment).

The second movie was so disappointing I still have never actually seen the third one. The Wachowskis record since doesn't fill me with a whole lot of hope.

 

With Keanu revisiting his old films for sequels could we be getting a Johnny Mnemonic II or Constantine 2?

You aren't missing anything. The big set ups from 2 are never explored in 3 (Neo using his Matrix powers outside the Matrix) and it ends in a literal Dragonball-esque final fight sequence.

 

The Matrix films really ought to have been decades apart. The Wachowskis had a glorious first film, but all insight and philosophy flew out the window in the sequels and it's clear they had no idea where to actually GO with the story. Give them the time to hash out those details instead of rushing sequels out the door probably would have resulted in a science fiction masterpiece as beloved as Star Wars. Instead we got a very good (if very dated) turn of the century techno-thriller that proceeds to shit itself then projectile vomit across the room with the sequels.

The original was so good... I'm happy to assume we may get another good'un that washes away the taste of the sequels. It's modern Keanu, how bad could it be?! Everything he touches now turns to gold.

WTH with al this sudden Speed Racer love I don't get it? where where you when the film was in theaters? because that film bombed hard


I wouldn't call it sudden! People have been raving about how transcendently magnificent that movie is since it released. I'm hardly surprised it didn't translate into ticket sales though.
