Basic rules of movie watching

Went and saw The Matrix Reloaded last night. Ran into three of my former co-workers – Donald, Aaron, and Jeffrey. Talking to Jeffrey was a little odd, but otherwise pretty painless. he’s pretty happy and biz seems to be picking up, so it’s all good.

As for the movie : Wow. Didn’t suck.

Now, it *DID* still ahve some plot holes, the acting in places could have been better, but overall, I enjoyed myself. Lots and lots of action. Much more than the first movie. The car chase kicks ass.

Thinking of it as action with and OK plot helps. Kind of like porn with a plot, only this plot keeps you involved between action scenes. Some people were complaining about the political stuff, but i think that’ll be more relevant next movie. I hope.

Oh, and while pretty well done, I could have done without the Neo/Trinity sex scene.

And when you see it, make sure you wait until the credits are over before you leave. Trust me.

Mad, mad thanks to the COUp folks for letting me tag along.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    That’s one of the basic rules of movie watching. You always stay until the credits are over. A good example of this was the last Harry Potter movie. People who stayed know exactly what I’m talking about. :-)

    The first example putting something special after the trailer that I remember seeing was at the end of the Muppet Movie.

    Animal : Go Home! Go Home!
    (after a pause)
    (softly) bye-bye

    Ferris Bueller did it as well.

    Is that place still in business? I thought they went down the tubes?

    I actually find it to be extremely rude for people to get up and leave the theater before the credits are finished rolling. People put a lot of work into the movie, so why wouldn’t you stay and see who “people” are :) And there are almost always interesting little things, even if it’s just something small like an effects house named the “Pixel Liberation Front”
