I love The Matrix. The whole dang trilogy in fact. What I don't like is how mostly everyone I talk to absolutely hates the last two movies and has no problem tormenting me for liking them. I'll admit that on their own, they do seem a bit off at times, but within the realm of story and continuity, they really finish out well. There a some things that are close to being plot holes but they can totally be explained away, at least in my opinion. The first was undeniably the best, but the last two don't get the credit they deserve.

I loved all the Matrix movies. Of course the first one was the best as it was a new experience for all the watchers to that kind of movie style. the other 2 movies you had to be focused and understand their purpose and that way you would wanted to watch it again. I have watched all matrix movies over 10 times now and I still enjoy watching them all three.

I totally agree with the focusing part. There's a lot of important details in the movie that you can easily miss if you even blink. You almost have to watch all three movies a few times just to comprehend everything. But that's what I love about them, their the movies for the thinking man, and I do love to think...I think.

I was absolutely blown away when I saw Matrix, so much so the after watching it I got all my friends to go and watch it some became just as hooked too. Animatrix was superb and so my expectations for Reloaded were stratospheric so it no surprise that I came out of the cinema a little disappointed. Revolutions on the other hand I did not enjoy, the movie was fine, the crowd I watched it was terrible and they ruined whatever hope I had of enjoying it. So for a while I fell into the group that did not enjoy the last 2 movies. Then I got the DVDs with the three movies and extras, and watched them in sequence over an evening with a group of friends in a movie night. This is where I started really liking them. They make sense if watched together, I enjoyed them so much that I have since seen them several times individually and still find them fun and the extras give them a more rounded feel. Matrix in my mind will always be better, it was ground breaking, it created a new style and therefore the surprise of it adds to the charm, the other two are good but they feel like the epilogue of a good book, just to give that extra closure.

I'm with you on this one. Reloaded and Revolutions are not that bad as some critics made it out to be. I've seen sequels far worse. Matrix will always be on my favorite list and its really rare that sequels are better than the original anyways.
