    The first one's brilliant. It's hard to see it now because of everything that's come after, but the story's about the least significant part of it: the look, feel, sound, technology, etc. were all incredibly original and influential.

    The second movie's very good. The third one's bad. "Hey, let's make a Matrix movie without any of those pesky inside-the-Matrix parts!"

    Two and three were only good because Monica Belluci was in them..

    Matrix is a cult classic and definitely is a top ten worthy movie.

    The Matrix would have been immeasurably better if they had kept the original concept that the people were being kept to use their brains as computing power. An idiot producer thought that was 'too complicated', 'people wouldn't get it', and got it switched to 'providing energy', which really doesn't make that much sense. Producers in Hollywood: An unnecessary evil.....

    I edited them together into one long movie while cutting out as much of the stupid crap as I could (about 90 minutes in total). It was a much more enjoyable experience. I've been meaning to redo that edit since I didn't know what I was doing at the time and the editing quality is very poor. And it was back with DVDs so it wasn't HD. Now I am more experienced and have better software, and of course blu-rays. Just need the time.

    Sounds like a great concept. I would love to see your edit.

    I've also done the Transformers (29 min. cut), Transformers 2 (two versions, 25 and 20 min. cut), Avatar (19 min. cut), and Karate Kid (2010 version - 32 min. cut). And I joined the last 2 Harry Potters into one movie (length is probably the same. A few things cut, a few small deleted scenes added back in).

    You actually watched 32 minutes of the 2010 version of Karate Kid?

    It's actually not that bad a movie, in many ways better than the 80's version.

    Yup. Jaden Smith is not one of those aspects.
