They recast both Morpheus and Smith, and now that I think about it, Sati. I dunno if the kid who played her in the OG movies still acts or what.I liked the new Matrix.
You guys will hate it.
Please, please no more sequels. For the love of Crom, leave something to the imagination.
The ending to the new one seems to me to be “yeah sorry guys we kinda went off the walls in the trilogy at the end here is a much more satisfying ending.”
Who was a recast? Smith?
I missed The post credit scene. Saw in theater and had to pee lol, @famicommander can you pm what happens in the scene?
Apparently to fami every franchise is Dune level. Next thing you know we'll be getting daily updates about Jumanji 5.No, it's Dune level 2
Looks like you'll get your wish about no sequels to Resurrections, because it's tanking badly.I thought the beginning with Neo was the strongest part of the film. Had they not shown the new Morpheus it would have been really interesting in so far as whether or not Thomas Anderson was suffering from a crippling mental delusion.
They should have hit up a pseudo Wes Craven’s New Nightmare angle.

There's allegedly a new Animatrix in the works but that'll probably be the end of it for at least another decade.
Also, that bit about the bosses threatening Thomas that they'll make more Matrix with or without him was real life shit.
WB was developing a new movie starring Michael B. Jordan and written by Zak Penn, with no input from the Wachowskis. They canceled it when Lana pitched this movie.
Penn has co-written or written such gems as:
X-Men 3: The Last Stand
Ready Player One
Nutty Professor II: The Klumps
Gotta admit that Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop was weird but cool lolCBGB- Semi comedy about the famous NYC club mostly focusing on the owner Hilly. A real mixed bag, while it covers bands like Television, The Ramones, Talking Heads, Blondie, The Police, Iggy Pop and Patti Smith it skips over a ton of others that while not as well know are arguably just as important. Focusing an inordinate amount of time on The Dead Boys, which actually has Rupert Grint in the most accurate role in the entire movie. Some other interesting casting choices here and there spice things up a little.
Goofy and annoying editing, inconsistant tone and some just god awful lip-synching really drag the movie down and unfortunately so does Alan Rickman as Hilly. The entire time he's on screen all you can see and hear it Rickman in a wig with a gut. Sure he look like the real guy but it just doesn't work.
Also there is no sense of a timeline to anything, it makes it seem like all of this is just happening within a very short window of time when it's actually closer to a decade.
Worth watching to see the different interpretations of some great bands but it's not enough to make it anything more than a mediocre attempt at capturing something really special.
