Questions to be asked of The Matrix Sequels

Any regular forum visitors will know of my obsession with these movies, and, whilst Revolutions is yet to be released on DVD, I eventually watched it a total of Seven times at the movie theatre :rolleyes:.

If you've read my previous posts about these movies, you'll probably already want to be running away covering your ears & humming a loud tune before you're at the end of the thread, but fear not :D. In my obsession with this movies I've raised to myself a few questions which I've not been able to answer, and seek the 'guidance' of faithful forum buddies. So, to begin with:

1) In the first Matrix movie, Trinity says, when asked by Neo what the EMP is, "Electromagnetic Impulse, it's our only defence against the machines." Quite simple really, that's all the ships have to defend themselves with... So, WHY OH WHY, are ALL of the ships armed to the teeth with firepower in Reloaded/Revolutions?

2) At the end of Reloaded, as Trinity is in the building scrapping it out with the Agent (and in various other scenes), WHERE does she keep pulling these guns from? 'Check Her Out' in some of the wider camera shots, & you'll notice that she's not actually carrying any weapons, so where do they keep coming from!?

3) If the oracle is who she says she is, shouldn't she be 'all powerful'? Why does she keep running away from people?

4) Again in Reloaded, in the scene atop the juggernaught. When Morpheus 'stabs' the Katana sword into the side of the vehicle to 'stand' on (So he can grab the keymaker from the bike etc etc), he stabs it into the side of the vehicle at arm's length (Obvious right?). Yet, when he jumps onto it, it's at the very bottom of the juggernaught. Yet then AGAIN when he retrieves it to attack the agent, it's at arm's length again...

5) In the same scene, why does the keymaker seemingly disappear from the top of the truck in some of the CG shots?

6) What do YOU think actually hapenned at the end of Revolutions between Neo & Smith?

7) And didn't seeing Monica Belluci's breasts on a 50ft screen keep you from concentrating for the rest of Revolutions?

I noticed that and I think I have posted on it in the past.

EDIT yes I did it was in my SPOILER here.

1, Because guns are cool & everybody in the Matrix likes to play with them.
2, The Matrix can be manipulated it's not real, therfore, ergo she can pull guns from thin air.
3, She doesn't have to run because she knows that ultimatly she needs to be where she needs to be to end the sequance of events that's taking place.
4, The Matrix can be manipulated it's not real, therfore, ergo the sword can be moved by him by will.
5, To save money on CGI.
6, Neo won the scrap.
7, Yes

Probably a combination of bad direction and a drunk person pretending to be in charge of continuity.

Even more peculiar- why were the gun turrets mounted on the Osiris in the Animatrix, heavy duty believable looking bits of hardware when the ones in Revolutions were pathetic and appeared to be controlled by a NES control unit? The noise of the Osiris ones was vastly better as well, half Browning 50, half MG42.

All tiny pieces that add up to the superiority of the Animatrix :)

WHat do you think hapenned there then?

I thought 'Controlled by a NES' was a bit strong, 'Commodore 64' would've been more realistic (i've got a NES in my bedroom and it P***** all over that for graphics performance).

Think they ran out of money!?

1. because an EMP would paralise their machinery too leaving them defenceless agains a second attack.

2. they were generated from the matrix.

3. because a certain sequence of events need to play out

4. bad continuity - that scence probablt took months to film

5. bad CG

6. Neo merges the 2 codes (the one & smith) together to end smith's hold over the matrix and allow the architect to restart the program.

Dimmy ... pub, beer, peanuts, you me and about 72 hours of conversation on this topic would follow.

What annoys me more than anything else is the anti-climax of the whole event. You start off in the first film understanding the premise that the human race is enslaved in the Matrix. The machines are bad. The human race needs to be freed.

They spend that much money on another 2 films and we still end up in the exact same scenario? The Watchowski brothers have dissapeared up their own backsides beleiving everything they do is cool(sic). I am utterly amazed that Warner Brothers fell for the story in 2 & 3 allowing it to be made. Imagine if Roald Dahl ended Charlie and the Chocolate factory with Charlie living back in poverty with cabbage soup for dinner!

It'd be like Darth Vader killing Luke and the rebels in Star Wars or Ripley dancing off into the sunset hand in hand with a xenomorph. Why not remove Gimli's chopper from Frodo's ring and let Sauron rule middle earth?! Hells bells, why not let John Connor find out that there will be a judgement day.

Hang on, they did. Another movie ruined, another rant in my head.
