Matrix Reloaded: did you see it?

Who has seen MR? If you did, what did you think? I'm planning on going monday, and I'm really dying to know what happens.
My paper (De Morgen) said it's 'visually stunning but leaves you with a longing in you heart'.
Can anybody tell?

Don't tell me how to act - how to be - how to live
I am what I am from beginning to the end

It is available on DVD now. I can't stop watching it again and again. Incredible..

By the way, what happened to original thread mentioned above?

The first one was better, yes, but the second one wasn't a bad follow up. They could have done far worse There was no way they were going to top the first one.

The second one is perfect. The first one is more like your typical sci-fi action.

The second one is much deeper and very phylosophical..

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! i'm DYING over here....the "philosophical" part of the movie had me rolling my eyes so much i thought they'd stick. it was like Psych 101, and SO melodramatic...you'd think it was fucking Hamlet.

the first movie, however, was excellent...but some of the dialogue made me wince. here's hoping "revolutions" is FIFTY TIMES better than the "reloaded."

The first one was awesome. I'm getting the second on dvd, I was lame and did not go to the movies to see it.

be glad you saved your money.

the vaunted "burly brawl" between neo and agent smith was so disappointing...i mean, there was no drama...you know the both of them are superhuman, and can't kill one another...so there's no suspense. and no matter how much time and money they spend, it looks FAKE!!! you'd think after all of these years those computer geniuses would learn how to make digital humans look more like the real thing.

and they spent too much time in the real city instead of the matrix world...i did like the oracle, though...she's cool. but...that's about it. GO REVOLUTIONS!!!!!!! please please please be better!!!!!!

yeah the second one was deep an philosophical but that one part and everyone who has seen it knows which part i'm talking about, well it was a bit long and not really something one wants to deal with or listen to in a movie. that part needed to be shorter then the movie would have been perfect.

you want philosophical then watch donnie darko.

this was all about the fighting, and they threw in some words to shut up the original matrix fans.

a good portion of it looked too fake. i have yet to see a movie master CGI. thats why im not a big fan of these sci-fi movies that overuse cgi; i feel like im watching a video game.

and that weird rave scene was pathetic... what the fuck was that about? horribly corny.

glad i didnt see it at the movies. i actually fell asleep last night at the end of it.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.
