One of the Perks of Hollywo...

One of the Perks of Hollywood Living: I'm off to a super-secret (and free!) screening of The Matrix Reloaded. Will post a 25-word review later tonight. UPDATE: Terrific movie. More steam, longer sentences, less goofy humor, smaller WOW factor, but good mindfudgery, bitchin' kung-fu, funny Frenchies, hot Carrie Anne-Moss action. Fishburne needs diet.

Ah, to be 14 again...you'll be one of the few men there who's not still living with his mom.

I liked the Onion's infographic thingie about it: "Incredible new filmmaking technology enables audience to instantly transform from 34-year-old men into 14-year-old boys."

Do you have any idea at all how much jealousy you have instilled in the hearts of computer geeks and bloggers world wide?

I hate you. In a good way.

Twenty-SIX words! Or does a proper name count as one word?

THERE IS NO GIRLFRIEND

I knew you were going to say that. The last Treacher said the exact same thing. Why do you think we keep writing 26 words? Humans are so predictable ... especially you three-armed types.

Thank goodness. Glad someone else likes this movie as much as I did.

I have a personal delima I would like comments on. I will probably only have the chance to see this movie once in the theaters. Should I see it as soon as it opens, or wait three weeks for the IMAX version?

Matt -- You want a shirt? Tell me where to send it.

RE: the IMAX version, though -- make sure it isn't trimmed. If it's just a regular projector pointing at an IMAX screen you're fine, but if it's specifically on IMAX film like Attack of the Clones was, they'll have to cut about 10 min or so, because IMAX platters can't handle more than 2 hour-long flicks.

'course, many people think the shorter cut of AOTC is the superior one.

Odd as it sounds, for about 10 minutes Matrix: Reloaded becomes MTV's "The Grind," and Colonel Sanders makes an appearance near the end of the movie: "Neo, there are two doors. Behind one is salvation. Behind the other is a bucket of my delicious crispy strips!"

heh...or something like that...indeed, a good movie.
