The Wachowski Brothers

Any news on what The Wachowski Bros. have been up to?

I remember hearing a rumor a while back about them working on a Speed Racer film, but that didn't sound very solid. I absolutely looooooove The Matix films (yeppers, all 3 of them, Reloaded is even my favorite). And V for Vendetta is easily in my top 5 movies of all time. Yeah, that's good stuff.

Regardless, I can't wait for their next project.

apparently Speed Racer's in pre-production

http://imdb.com/title/tt0811080/

I liked the first Matrix a lot, but the two sequels were a let down for me. I still think Morpheus should've died over Trinity for sure.

I always thought the Matrix trilogy as a whole was overrated. The first film was great. But as a whole, the trilogy doesn't do as much for me storywise as, say, the original Star Wars trilogy, or the Back To The Future trilogy. They were cinematically great though. Ushered in a whole new era of special effects.

V For Vendetta was CLASS

Yeah, forgot to mention V for Vendetta could be the most badass comic book adaptation other than Batman Begins or Sin City.

I think I might be one of the few people who prefer Batman/Returns/Forever to Batman Begins.

Batman&Robin was terrible though.

Batman Begins, to me, is just more true to the character of Batman with less flash and more substance.


The first 3 Batman movies were great movies involving Batman. The stories are too radically shifted for them to be real comic book adaptations of Batman IMO.

I love what Tim Burton did with the first 2 and hell, even the campy Batman Forever with Nicole Kidman at her absolute peak. Batman Forever could've been much better judging from the 40 minutes cut from the movie, I blame the studios for fucking this movie up.

Words have not been made yet to describe the awfulness of Batman and Robin

just saw Reloaded again today on TV... I didn't mind that as much as the last movie, which disapointed me beyond anything.

thought V For Vendetta was a tad overrated myself, but I didn't think it was a bad movie in the least.

Not sure what to expect.

Matrix (should have left the first movie alone without the sequels) and Vendetta

Wasn't there a story about one of them having a sex change around the time of the release of "Matrix 3...completely alienate your audience"

Thanks to the Matrix Reloaded, I don't think I will ever see a more awkward sex scene in a film. Ever.

Rumor has it, that was the first time Keanu ever touched a naked lady.

That's the word on the street.

I don't think so, he had a baby who was stillborn.
