Well, from my own experience...I saw the first Matrix twice and like I said, it was great.  I saw Matrix part deux once at the theater and almost got up and left...it was boring and basically abandoned the total mind screw that made the first one so great.  So, I skipped 3 altogether and haven't seen it yet

I'd have been satisfied if they left it at Matrix and not have two half assed sequels but thats just me

Are we sure that article is reliable?  It's from some community college and I couldn't find any other mention of the story on google news.  I'd think something like that would be all over the place.

According to the story:

Quote
"The reason you have not seen any of this in the media is
because Warner Brothers parent company is AOL-Time
Warner... this GIANT owns 95 percent of the media... let me give
you a clue as to what they own in the media business... New
York Times papers/magazines, LA Times papers/magazines,
People Magazine, CNN news, Extra, Celebrity Justice,
Entertainment Tonight, HBO, New Line Cinema, Dreamworks,
Newsweek, Village Roadshow... many, many
more!... They are not going to report on themselves. They have
been surpressing my case for years..."

Why WOULD they rat themselves out? That's like expecting Dan Rather to say CBS falsified the Bush National Guard memos.

Here, I ran across this while looking for more info:

In reference to the recent article entitled "Mother of the Matrix Victorious," some information has been deemed misleading. Ms. Sophia Stewart has not yet won her case against Joel Silver, Time Warner and the Wachowski Bros. The decision on October 4th enabled Ms. Stewart to proceed with her case, as all attempts to have it dismissed were unsuccessful. Ms. Stewart's case will proceed through the Central District Court of California.

Yeah, her case is only very preliminary.  That article is a little misleading.

So yes, I'll resurrect a 17 year old thread instead of starting a new one:

The Matrix Resurrection Trailer

A lot's happened since 2004.  The Wachowski Brothers are now the Wachowski Sisters.  I'm glad this is streaming on HBO Max...The Wachowskis owe me money for seeing Revolutions in the theater.
This is the way.


I have spoken.
