Ok so first of i have spent the last two days installing redhat nine on my home machine, (for those who need this explaining, red hat is a version of linux, which itself is a form of Operating System, ie the software that runs the computer (windows is a popular operating system I hear))
Anyway got it installed and i don’t like it, there have got to be better linux builds out there… anyone who has an opinion on linux please let me know what your fav build is and WHY. I really don’t know what to go with so could do with some guidence. (oh and i don’t like SUSE either!)
MATRIX OPINION AHEAD!
Also went to see the MATRIX: RELODED tonight… boy was i looking forward to this film. My basic feeling beforehand was, ok so it’s gonna be worse than the first film (by definition as the first was unique) but I really liked the look of the trailer so i should enjoy it… BOY WAS I WRONG. This film is drivvel, it really is… no REALLY.
the start is slow and altogether rather boring, ok there’s trinity who looks old and ohhh she jumps too. wow! same old same old. Unfortunatly it gets worse too, the film delves into a rambeling account of what it’s like to be in the world where machines are attacking zion the only sanctuary. only you never feel any anticipation or a sense of impending doom, all I found myself asking was “WHY THE FUCK ARE THEY DANCING? THIS IS THE MATRIX ISN’T IT?” ok so that’s a bit of an overstatement but comon the Zion part is just filler. Ok so i also played and completed the enter the matrix game over the last three days (which is also pants and should have served as a warning) so i had a bit of extra story to keep me interested, but even then it’s just pure shite. Morphius has lost any cool he had and just seems to come accross as a lunatic with his motly crew.
Then we get a nice story tangent as to how the orical is not human and how there are rogue programmes hiding out in the matrix. nice twisting but as of jet no wow factor. We have a nice chase too at some point although it’s just another chase and so soon forgotten about. Suddenly (well not that suddenly but quite quickly) we have a mission to go to the core, somehow we see a power plant get blown up (covered in the game but glossed over in the film) and trinity in danger. it’s all just a load of filler the story threads seem to be picked out of the air at random and placed into the script on a whim!
The bit i did like was with the architect, and the realisation of the orical and Neo’s true purpose, this is a really nice twist, but soooo badly executed. the script seems to try and throw in as much spiralling as possible, why not just say it outrite, that would have more power.
Nedless to say i was left with a sadly dissapointed feeling, where was the action the great moves (even the Computer Generated Images were crap!) it just defied belief. They had too many ideas that they wanted to put in, and only one film to do it (HELLOOOO YOU HAVE ANOTHER ONE ON THE HORISON!!!) hopefully they put all the crap in this one and moved all the good stuff to the finally, cos i can’t take any more of this shite!
Well that’s my rant. Off to bed now to dream of a good matrix 2 script!.
