Revolting Revolutions

this might just work out to become a crib post (thats not to be associated with the mental level of the lil folk in cribs, although some people, especially my wife, has that complaint about me, hehe). i happened to see the final edition of the matrix trilogy (yeah, i have been sorta living in a cave), even after reviews of die hard fans advocating against it...but hey, this is the matrix we are talking about, so it cant be that bad....and if you take the movie by itself, it wasnt, in fact, it was good, but unfortunately it has the matrix to live up to, which isnt exactly my view, thats what they tried to do, maybe they didnt really have fun doing it, and it showed... too many things added in just for having it...the titles shown with an 'asatoma satgamaya' chant to highlight the mysticism/philosophy, talks of karma....but i did love some lines, notably agent smith's " where others see chance, i see cost, where others see coincidence, i see consequence"...but morpheus and trinity have been truly wasted...and so many cliches, the boy wanting to live up to expectations and doing a heroic thing, a sunrise in the end....and dialogues that were made heavy just for the sake of it....bottom line, once upon a time in wwe, Triple H said "you wanted a revolution , you got it!!", well, the same cant be said of the matrix....i guess its true what they say "everything that has a beginning has an end"...but, whatever said and done, The trilogy is unique, i doubt whether anything before or after has or will be successful in provoking so much thought....but what does provoke thought comes from the 'idiot box' in the form of 'taken'.....just two more episodes to go :-( , hear another good piece of dialogue.." when things around you dont make sense, you try to hold on to things that make sense, so you can understand the things happening around you... you try to understand the reasons behind it, but , what if you find the reasons, and those reasons are not yours??"... those of you who wanna check the series out, try this link ... so long, till the next post....
