People should stop hyping not-so-great movies

... like 'The Matrix' which I saw for the first time yesterday. The first half is quite interesting, but the second is rather boring and silly IMO. I like '12 Monkeys' much more, for example.

Also 'The 6th sense' had a lot of hype but was boring too.

Why is that? Or am I the only person who thinks like that?

The Matrix is a hybrid rip-off of the Ghost in the Shell and The Truth Will Set You Free.

Well, I thought it was a rip-off of Terminator.

I hated the Matrix, I thought it was incredibly overrated too - For some reason well beyond me though, it has become almost cult-like to some people.

To each their own I suppose

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

I didnt understand ANYTHING about the Matrix and hated it! I fell asleep watching The Lord of the Rings.

I loved the 6th Sense though! And 12 Monkeys is a brilliant movie!

I'm sort of a person who hates "The Lord of the Rings". Boring shit right there, but yet it was hyped up, Like Harry Potter, another boring movie. zzzzz

I didn't think 'The 6th sense was boring, But it did drag a bit.

"The Matrix" is the mass-cult version of "1984." It's a decent movie, but anyone who thinks it's "deep" doesn't read.

I have never seen the Matrix and don't plan on anytime in the future either. It just looked ridiculous. Same thing with anything to do with Lord of the Rings. Maybe if they made the Hobbit I would have been interesting. I enjoyed that book when I read it in class in the seventh grade. Then again, I was 13 and pretty lame.

I downright refuse to see Titanic. I am not a huge fan of period pieces like that unless it stars someone I don't hate and who doesn't suck. Unfortunately, Leo is 0 for 2 there.

I enjoyed the Sixth Sense since I saw it before all the mega-hype set in and the ending wasn't spoiled. My friend and I figured it out at the same time. I say "Holy Shit" and then he follows it almost screaming "he's fucking dead". I enjoyed Unbreakable but haven't gotten around to watching "Signs" yet even though I bought it on DVD over three months ago.

the matrix has amazing special effects, that's why it will always be hyped up, and the special effects will only get better
