The Matrix: Reloaded
Directed by the Wachowski Brothers

Guess what? The Matrix: Reloaded is a lot of fun and if you can't appreciate what went into this film, you are a jaded snob! Seriously, it was really fun. Good story, great action, and Keanu and Carrie having sex. The Matrix films are a rare fluke for Hollywood where some artists with vision actually get to make a movie on their terms without a bunch of studio idiots meddling and what happen? I'll tell you what happens, pimple-faced nerds complain because it isn't what showed up in their wet dreams the night before they saw the movie. Ideally, I would never have to hear the opinions of these uber-nerds, but they are everywhere I seek my entertainment news. We are a generation of know-it-alls that deserve to be beaten every time we open our mouths and let nonsense dribble out. The proof we are too free in this country is that every time a decent movie like The Matrix: Reloaded comes out, I have to be subject to the opinions of a bunch of thirty-something, film school rejects working in a video store because they will never get work in their field. If you were under-whelmed by the Matrix: Reloaded, it's most likely because you are over-stimulated and breast fed too long. If you actually see a movie you understand that doesn't have Cuba Gooding Jr. in it, you should call 911. OK, and please, if you hated Matrix: Reloaded, for God's sake, please stay the hell out of the theater when The Matrix: Revolutions come out so I don't have to hear you bitch about it when the credits role.
