i loved the whole thing but hated how they ended with neo flying in like super man.

i enjoyed T3 and pirates of the carribean :/

HickMan True. No directors look good . Lucas, Spielberg. But I still stand with everything else I said. But I still think HollyWood is too full of itself to like the geeked up movies. Aside from LOTR because they're just too good not to like.

Dude, I can name a LOT of very well regarded directors who are not athletic or good looking at all. Nobody gives a shit about what the director looks like. If you're behind the camera, it doesn't matter.

Geggy i agree with the highway scene which had made sitting through the whole (shitty) movie worthwhile. that scene alone should've been nominated, i think. however, i was disappointed with the way that scene ended when neo saved morpheus and the keymaster. stupid.

johnny depp is an awesome actor.

HickMan The second matrix was astounding. The visuals were just brilliant and plot just dug and dug (maybe too deep). But the third matrix was...more epic in a sense. It wasn't what people were looking for. It was great, but not the same feel that the other two were. But still good none the less. Hollywood is just pissed at the brothers because they were normal guys before the first movie and then they turned into super stars when the second came out. Hollywood hates them because they're aren't good looking, athletic, or anything that makes a good star. Hollywood is pretty much like the big bully and the watchowskie (sp) brothers and their movies are like the nerds playing gameboy on the playground. They're just different and it scares them, and the thing that scares hollywood is, the intellegence of the movies. Not just the dribble that most action movies are.

Anonymous ok. that's true. I think they put an effort into it that should be recognized. I just think maybe it was too stylized to come off right. It was like half way between trying to be realism and trying to be whateverstyle to work right in the third film


edit:
rog just told me the 2nd matrix didnt get any nominations either. I think they should at least have gotten nominated for the 2nd matrix, and at the very least for best action sequence.

Immortal Goat ROTK should win Best Picture, in my opinion. I'm not arguing who should win anything, I am just saying that it is a shame to see that the Matrix films are not up for the award. I know they wouldn't win, but you know what they say. It is an honor just to be nominated.
Jan 9th, 2004 06:57 PM
Anonymous ROTK should win special effects and art direction too if they have an award for it

Matrix 3 was totally uneventful for me. Nothing striking. And yeah, at lot of it was too fake looking.
Not saying T3 was good. I'd have to see POTC again, Depp's handsomeness is far too distracting to notice any special effects
Jan 9th, 2004 06:43 PM
Protoclown It wasn't just the faces in the burly brawl scene, the texture of their clothing was too flat and fake looking to me. It was only for a few brief moments but those moments are BAD. The other worst part is when Neo is flying and the camera pans around to him up above the clouds. Looks waaaaay too fake.

The freeway scene though? Flawless. You can definitely tell where the money went.

I must admit I don't remember the third movie as well because I've only seen it once, but I don't recall being annoyed by the CGI even once. Though I still think the movie was much weaker than the first too (but I still liked it).

Everyone except you is allowed. I'm sorry, you should have received that memo.

Ant10708 I was agreeing and by more people saying it, it reinforces the fact.

Immortal Goat I agree with Chojin ( ) about the Burly Brawl scene. I can see where you are coming from about the faces, but all in all, I think it was fuckin' awesome. And besides, that scene was probably pretty tough for them to get looking THAT good. It probably took a long time to do.

Yeah, I already said that...

While you are all kind of on the subject of Pirates.. Did anyone think Depp was mimicking his role as Hunter S. Thompson in Fear and Loathing? They were so much alike.. The hand movements, the voice patterns...
No. It was Keith Richards he was mimicking. But perhaps all perpetually drug addled people begin acting the same at some point.

The burly brawl was extremely entertaining and much of it was well done, but you could definitely see when it all of a sudden changed to CGI characters. Their bodies looked fine, but the faces became too... i dunno... plastic.

Mockery I actually thought the effects in the 3rd Matrix movie were cooler. The huge attack on Zion, the giant computer city & ships... all great stuff. The 2nd Matrix definitely had flaws in the Burly Brawl scene, but still... I don't see how either movie can get shunned from the voting in the special effects category when you compare them to T3 or Pirates. That's just horse shit.

And yeah, ROTK will win without a doubt.
Jan 9th, 2004 12:52 PM
Protoclown I agree that the effects in Matrix 2 were great, but there were some REALLY awful moments (during the Smith brawl particularly). Pirates was also really well done. Terminator 3 was nothing special as far as effects go though.

But none of those can come CLOSE to ROTK.
Jan 9th, 2004 12:24 PM
Anonymous Matrix 2 deserves it.

Protoclown If anything deserves an award for visual effects, it's "Return of the King".
