Empty Calories
The Matrix Revolutions was quite the event movie last night. We saw the film at perhaps the most famous movie theater in Hollywood, if not the world, and it made the whole experience seem even "bigger". Limos kept pulling up to the theater and divesting their (un-famous) passengers to the theater, and the crowd had an enormous amount of energy. The highlight of the line-waiting was defiantly seeing Ron Jeremy walk past us down Hollywood Blvd. You would think all this hullaballoo would have revved up my excitement to see the final Matrix film, but it really didn't. Once the lights went down and the (literally) twenty minuets of trailers and commercials ran and the green Matrix code began to scroll down the screen I FINALLY started to get excited.

As for the movie... It was certainly very entertaining, and visually amazing, but it was really like eating a spoon-full of frosting: empty calories. The finale wraps everything up nicely, but it doesn't really answer any of the questions asked by the first two films. I fear it is going to take a bad beating by critics and fans, but I do recommend seeing it for anyone who has seen, and liked, the first two. But do your self a favor and go see it on the IMAX screen. You can get more frosting into a bigger spoon...
