Yup, any movie where Mr. Keaton from Family Ties is a militant fanatic married to Reba McIntyre is a winner in my book.

Graboids are like the cowbell, there can never be enough.

I'm pretty sure Sean Penn's method acting involves meditating on the fact that most people in this country remember him for Fast Times At Ridgmont High before anything else he's done. It gives him the anger and passion he needs to a shitty actor with feeeeeling.

Speaking of Family Ties, I can't believe we haven't seen more Michael J Fox in recent movies.

Boy did he ever fall off the map ...

Either that's a very bad joke or a genuine question, I'm not sure which.

I hear Fox always puts on a face-mask before opening a can of soda

Wowzers.

Marty McFly is still my favorite film character of all-time.

No doubt. I rewatched those movies awhile back. Its amazing to me how 1 & 3 are so brilliant while 2 is such utter crap.

Guarenteed Zemeckis has more control over #2 in that case.

I enjoyed Part II as a kid, but rewatching it again it really is terrible. Biff all of a sudden becomes some sort of insane rapist murderer? The alternate angle of the day in 1955 is a cool idea though. Part III is enjoyable, it's impossible to top the original though.

Now back to sequelitis:

Back-to-back sequels never work. Here's the breakdown:

Back to the Futures Part II and III
Pirates 2 and 3
The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions

edit: I forgot which thread I was in.

Have any sequels ever failed as miserably as the matrix movies?

I felt like someone stole something from me they were so bad.

The Matrix sequels kick ass. Agreed on the other two accounts though.

Even the Enter the Matrix game, which could've been 150 shades of amazing, was absolutely terrible.

The Pirates sequels were almost as terrible as the Matrix sequels though, but still made a shitload of money because every woman in the world goes horny for Johnny Depp. It's a proven fact.

To be fair I noticed quite a few men join with me to will the camera to pan up so I could see up Kiera's skirt in part three.

It never did ... it never did ...

I think one's enjoyment of the Matrix sequels happens to depend almost purely on whether or not any given individual likes the turns the storyline takes in The Matrix Reloaded. Because if you appreciate the several new plot points raised in that film, I really think the rest of the movie, as well as most of Revolutions falls neatly into place, and just clicks.

However, if you don't like where the story goes in the second installment, I can totally understand hating the films.
