Reloaded DVD - 44 Days
Revolutions - 70 Days

Just keeping people informed today big grin

hodgie723
i don't think you guys are right about Revoultuons coming out in 70 days

SpikeSpiegel
Yeah fifth of November, 69 days, and 43 days till reloaded DVD

Korri
korri gets excited big grin

Crash_Overload
Korri is always excited... about Neo... (no Offence...I just can't think that some1 can love him that much!!!

Korri
whistle

Crash_Overload
ha. lol

JediHDM
Korri, i'm sorry to tell you this, but there are people who think that Keanu Reaves is a horrible actor. I don't think this, but i have friends (extended) that do.

Another_Smithy
He is'nt a bad actor, he just has a tacky attitude. Lets get back on topic here.

SpikeSpiegel
42 days till reloaded dvd, 68 days till m3

SpikeSpiegel
25 days til m2 dvd

Korri
cannae wait!!

SpikeSpiegel
51 days til m3

Korri
too long sad

SpikeSpiegel
Hmmm
*Ponders ways to make time fly by*

Korri
lock urself in a cupboard and eat creamed rice

JediHDM
How about we all find the Timekeeper and make him speed up time so that it is Nov...

Korri
ahhhh good idea!!

SpikeSpiegel
who's the timekeeper? if you mean the man from the sumway station in etm surely he should be called the observor as he says "I'm just an observor"

burlyman
spectator wasnt it wink

SpikeSpiegel
same difference

Korri
lol

SimplePriest
Well he has like 5 watches on. I think that's why he's been psuedo-named the timekeeper.

And yes, we should find him and have him take us forward to november. Arrrgghh. Too long.....

Korri
well aslong as he turns back time afterwards coz i have exams at the same time sad *sobs*

SpikeSpiegel
that's just unlucky

Korri
it is....very!! wacko

JediHDM
I have two ideas of who the "Timekeeper" are, and both are minor characters we see little or not at all in Reloaded. The first is the subway, "observer" dude. The second is the guy that we see for about two seconds in Le Vrai, as he is being escorted away from the Mero right as our heros are being led to the Mero. (side note: if anyone can remember who the actor is, i would really appreciate it. i have been trying to remember for some time now, and i cant remember his name or what movie he was in. ) I could be wrong, but that is my opinion.

The Omega
Oh. 50 days to The Matrix Revolutions
24 days to the DVD!

(Please insert here various yells, screams, and other noises indicating fustration at 50 days being a DAMN long time...)

rysdigital
I WANT THE DAMN DVD NOW! stick out tongue

The Omega
Rysdigital> There are NOT fairly good quality pirate copies available on DVD (peers around for evil Big Warner Brother).

JediHDM
Omega> there are not words to express the amusement i gained from reading your last post. Too good.

VenomVA
laughing out loud rolling on floor laughing

rysdigital
i know, i have NOT got the ESVCD release cool big grin

i'm still gonna buy the official 2dvd thing though, soon as it comes out smile like everybody here, i imagine

JediHDM
Of Course. It better quality than the non-existant Reloaded rips...

rysdigital
big grin

VenomVA
Can't wait for the real thing (DVD) then I'll give my friend her BL back laughing out loud laughing out loud laughing out loud laughing out loud

Korri
*sigh* the waiting game

The Omega

SimplePriest
This is just plain mean of the Wach Brothers. They should stop playing around and show the movie now. I'm not even joking. We've been good. We've wated long enough. Why can't we see it tomorrow? Scratch that -- tonight! Andy and Larry, if you're reading this thread Please, Please, pleeeassee, just let us watch it. We'll even see it like seven times for you, how bout that? We'll bring all our friends and you can charge like $500 a piece. You see, this is a pretty good deal for you guys. You should take us up on this.

Ugghhh this is useless... It's never gonna be november.

Teunis
Too much Matrix Forum gives you one big headache in terms of having to wait for the next release.

JediHDM
teunis> i agree, and yes, theoretically nov WILL get here, but it is taking too (insert expletive here) long.

nickysan
if i could smash my head with a big a** rock and be out cold till nov 5th i would so do it smile

Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A. (NYSEbig grinMH)(Borsa Italiana S.p.Abig grinMH), a leading manufacturer of high performance motorcycles, today announced that it is teaming up with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to produce a limited edition Ducati 998 and Ducati Monster 620i.e., each inspired by "The Matrix Reloaded." The motorcycles will be on display at the Ducati stand at the Milano trade show, EICMA (September 16-21), and available for model year 2004 at Ducati Stores and other Ducati dealerships around the world. Warner Bros. Pictures' and Village Roadshow Pictures' action blockbuster "The Matrix Reloaded" is the second chapter in the Wachowski Brothers' revolutionary film trilogy. The worldwide blockbuster features a dramatic road chase on a Ducati Superbike.

The Ducati Superbike is celebrated for its design in countless museums and for its performance on racetracks all over the world. In its various versions, The Ducati Superbike has won more Superbike Championship races than the competition combined. The Ducati Monster has become a cult bike that invented a whole class of motorcycle: the sport naked bike. The Ducati Monster Matrix 620 tweaks the category with a spectacular "Matrix" livery, special paint and graphics. It is instantly the most desirable urban street fighter around.

"Ducati is thrilled to be a part of this hugely exciting film franchise," said David Gross, Ducati Creative Director. "The Matrix Superbike and the Monster Matrix 620 capture all of the thrill of high performance sport motorcycling and the spirit of `The Matrix.' Sport bikes and blockbuster movies just don't get any bigger than this."

"We were pleased to use Ducati Superbikes in creating the unprecedented Freeway Chase sequence in `The Matrix Reloaded', and we're even more excited that two Ducati motorcycles inspired by the film will now be available to our fans," said Joel Silver, producer of the "Matrix" trilogy. "Like the visionary action and visceral storytelling that power the Wachowski Brothers' trilogy, Ducati motorcycles represent innovation, singular style and cutting-edge performance."

This fall, Ducati will celebrate the launch of the Ducati Matrix motorcycles and "The Matrix Reloaded" DVD with a series of global events. In the Netherlands, the retailer Bijenkorf, the leading specialty retailer in Holland, will display the Ducati Matrix 998 at their flagship location in Amsterdam at DAM Square, across from the Palace. Ducati France will launch "The Matrix" night during the week of the Paris Motor Show from the 25th of September to the 5th of October. 400,000 visitors are expected.

October 14 marks the highly anticipated DVD release of the record-shattering blockbuster "The Matrix Reloaded," which has earned over $770 million in worldwide box office to date. Warner Home Video's October 14 street date makes "The Matrix Reloaded" available to fans three weeks before the theatrical release of the final explosive chapter in the phenomenal "Matrix" trilogy, "The Matrix Revolutions," on November 5.

SpikeSpiegel
comes out on the 10th here

CandyKoRn
Hated the Cliffhanger on Reloaded... *mumbles* miffed

Y-chromo kid
Has anyone seen Keanu in The Gift? I thought he was quite good.

CandyKoRn
I actually hated that film...

no expression

Y-chromo kid
It wasn't great (a bit different for Sam Raimi) the thing that struck me was that dear old KR played his part well. Some people told me he was a [email protected] actor, but in that role at least he did alright. I liked Bill and Ted but that doesn't count

CandyKoRn
Bill and Ted.. hahaha.. greeat films..

I prefer waynes world, for those types of movies..

trav6612
Matrix Revolution will be awesome. I hated as well the cliff hanger of Reloaded but luckily we don't have to wait two years in order to see revolutions.

icansee
He was good in Speed, all the other films sucked.

The Omega

Crash_Overload
I envy any and all jeapsies that can see into the futur.... MAN... DUDE..... OR i could go matrix style...

There is no time,
Time Is only An illusion,
A system of control,
You must learn to breack all rules,
And see through the fake,
the cover that blinds you,
Must see through,
there is not time......



WOAH..... Korri is married to Keanu...........

Crash_Overload
How many chances do you think Korri will see that?

SimplePriest
Omega>lol, I wish we could. But I imagine that by the time we Could build one of those spaceships, it would be well past Nov 5th. Probably past Nov 5th in the year 2040 for that matter. However if we Could somehow manage to make a near-light-speed space ship we would enjoy the added benefit of barely aging for a month.

Maybe instead we should try cryo freezing. hmm. Or hypnosis.

The Omega

JediHDM
closer to the year 2199... and Omega's right, about the time thing.

SpikeSpiegel
I've heard that HMV are going to to exclusive Neo/Trinity/Morpheus sleeves 4 the M2 DVD.

Korri
lol i wish laughing

Crash_Overload
I only realized I wrote that after it did write it

rysdigital
time does come to a standstill when your speed is c (theoretically). the prob is, you can't accelerate to that speed, would require an infinite amount of energy smile

about that year: more like 2800, btw stick out tongue

CandyKoRn
Korri, I love Keanu now...

Therefore... he's MINE!!! RaWr!!!! evil face


Happy Dance go 'nana go 'nana GO GO! Happy Dance

JediHDM
You have taken a VERY, VERY DANGEROUS POSITION, CandyKoRn...NOBODY cames between Korri and Keanu....You're gonna have to settle for someone else, like the KEYMAKER...HAHAHAHA

The Omega

rysdigital
that's why it's called relativity.

you can debate about this; time outside 'the space ship' (stick out tongue) will go infinitely fast relative to your own experience. this raises the question: can you experience time if the world around you ages infinitely fast. a question which has no answer smile

The Omega

rysdigital

The Omega

rysdigital
yea, sucks to be a photon, how boring would that be stick out tongue look up, i edited my previous post confused

The Omega

rysdigital
well, no. still don't get how that ties into complex number theory. i'll look up that gamma factor stuff tomorrow; good thing i study computer science, not physics wink

edit: gamma factor is just a fancy word for 'time dilation effect'?

The Omega
Here:
t_lab would be tme outside the spaceshiip, t_rest the time onboard the space-ship, c is itself, and v is the velocity with which the space-ship travels. Now try to have v > c.

rysdigital
ah, doh, didn't really look at the equation you gave earlier, stupid me smile got it, square root of 1 - x (x>1) Happy Dance in the denominator.

The Omega

rysdigital
agreed. o well, i don't like math that much anymore, since it got so 'difficult' i actually had to study for it stick out tongue

The Omega
Tsk!Tsk! Math is the language of the Universe, as one of my professors once said.

rysdigital
well, come to think of it, i do like the theoritical courses in computer science best. like mathematical programming and stuff. i'm just a lazy bastard :/ there are just too much things that are more fun and relaxing than studying, sadly.

JediHDM
well, that went over my head, considering im still in Calc 2, however, i have a few questions, Mrs. Wizard...
1) Dont photons have mass? i thought that they did...
2) what if we were to control antimatter, to cause a rift and/or huge explosion to force us to c...
3) would we be able to use anti-quarks for these purposes?
4) what's baryonic matter?
5) there isnt a way to achieve zero mass, because if you were to achieve it, everytime you start moving faster, wouldn't you achieve mass again?

rysdigital
well, hope you don't mind if i answer instead of omega stick out tongue

1) photons have no mass. (which is why they can move at the speed of light)
2) antiparticles have the same mass as their opposites (but the opposite charge), so they aren't relevant in this issue (i think o_O correct me if i'm wrong)
3) see 2.
4) i wouldn't mind knowing that myself smile
5) uhm.. you could go on an infinitely strict diet (sorry stick out tongue)

JediHDM
haha...

Korri
correct! i got there 1st!!

~I don't want any spoilers between the 5th and the 7th capish~

SimplePriest
46 days

SpikeSpiegel> I agree. But I know better.... Alas, I will have to keep myself away from this site until the 8th (when I see the movie twice, at least). I go to a military academy and can't get out until saturday. How unpatriotic is that, huh?

Omega> Oh great, someone who a) knows about physics, and b) entertains silly questions. I'll try to control myself. Eh-hmm. Having said that:
1) If a black hole pulls harder than the speed of light, and I were to head into a black hole, would I accelerate to faster than c? Ooops, never mind. Cuz time would slow down, and space would contract (or is it expand) and any light beams I see would still seem to go at c. Please correct me if I was wrong about that last part.

ok scratch that one,
new 1) So IF I could turn into a photon I would a) move at the speed at light b) not age and c) see everything else around me moving what appears to be infinetly fast (is this all right)? If this is the case then never mind. We'd definitely overshoot the movie.

2) How are we doing on that Theory of Everything? Combining all the forces? Superstring theory? We getting anywhere?

JediHDM
See, a black hole is why i thought photons had mass, because if they were massless, then a black hole wouldn't be able to stop them...

About superstring theory...Whats string theory? huh

SimplePriest
I'll leave that one to Omega to explain, but it's pretty friggin cool stuff cool

SimplePriest
45 days... Almost there

navykidd
Basically, string theory is crap, made up gibberish to explain the unexplainable. I will not believe it until it is a law, and then we will prove the String Theory Law in labs till we pass out. Just like chem labs or EE labs, we already know that Ohm's law works, but hey, lets try and see if it doesnt, oh wait it does, cause its a LAW. Anyways, string theory wont help us. I think the problem is, we cant travel at multiples of c, Is there any thing faster than c, I dunno, but just plain ol normal c would cause shifts in the time space equilibrium. but say we travelled at 1.5*c, then the shift would not be noticed, because the equilibrium would not understand the anomaly of speed, so in essence, if we keep talking out our butt, every night till november, string theory and time travel will actually get us there faster, whew, i said a lot of nothing, sorry for wasting your time. oh wait, thats all we have till revolutions comes out, and then what, a time machine to take us back so we can have that first experience over and over again, lol, GOD BLESS.

navykidd
by the way, simple priest, your pic thing rocks, what does it mean?

SimplePriest
navykidd> well as for your first post:

blink ..... ok

as for the second

Happy Dance why thank you for asking. I've been hoping someone would notice. It's Simple Priest in biblical Hebrew. And then of course it's in a matrix scheme. I kinda like it

roll eyes (sarcastic) wink big grin

navykidd
Thanks Simple, it rocks like i said, and thanks for commenting on my post, if i remember correctly, you told that joe guy that all of our posts matter, im a little confused, are u tolerant of everyone or not, lol, im Just jokin, i was rambling, its part of the stress of waiting till the fifth of november, im sorry, i just cant take the pressure, oh well, "everything that has a beginning has an end"(waiting till Revolutions)

rysdigital
a black hole has infinite mass density, which is why even massless 'things' can't escape. so, in a way, physically speaking 0*infinity > 0, while in math 0*x=0 for any x.

o well, the omega can probably explain this better.

JediHDM
But 0*infinity is an indeterminate form, it could be 0, it could be 1, it could be infinity, who knows...It has to have some mass, other wise it should just fly by. Also, and correct me if i'm wrong, but if a black hole had infinite mass, then we would be dead, because the entire universe would collapse into that Black Hole...

The Omega

JediHDM
but for gravitational pull to have any affect, doesn't the object need mass? In order to over come velocity, you need mass to grab onto...or am i just totally clueless?

The Omega

JediHDM
But if its massless, pure energy, how does the shape of the plane change its direction at all? Oh, wait, is it like the scientist who was able to stop light for miniscule amounts of time, by changing wavelengths, was it? ok, that makes sense, but it goes against everything they taught us about mass v. no-mass and gravity and acceleration...

The Omega

SimplePriest
umm (carry the one, add the 3)... 43 days left
That's one less than yesterday!!

But 45 more than I'd like sad I can't see it until that Saturday

Man, I'm sure I'm gonna have to jump on this site on Saturday and catch up on all the stuff you guys have said, cuz I ain't comin near this site between wed and sat. stick out tongue

SpikeSpiegel
18 days till reloaded dvd in the uk

rysdigital
read my post about education in joeboy's topic.

they always teach you stuff that isn't true at first smile because you won't be able to comprehend what is really happening yet. when you've mastered those basics of a certain science, they'll be introducing new concepts, which cast aside what was taught earlier.

JediHDM
yeah, but it just seems to be a waste of time, mine and theirs, if they only show us of the whole picture...

rysdigital
well, you understand the basics of physics, if you want to know more, you should study it; it isn't really practical on a day to day basis to know about dark matter, black holes if that's not your field of work/profession.

JediHDM
I am studying to be a computer engineer, so i'll probably get into nanotech, maybe not the secrets of the cosmos, but close enough... cool

SpikeSpiegel
14 days till reloaded dvd wooooo!

Crash_Overload
2 weeks??? YA WOAH HOO!!! (yes, woah)

Korri

yes yes, good movie. Hence the quote on my signature block...

JediHDM
yeah, i agree, just think of it as the matrix, but with a twist...and no machine control...its really good, i give it two lightsabers up...

Welll.... Equilibrium looks a little like 1984 meets the Matrix. But it's okay and definetely worth a watch smile

SpikeSpiegel
10 days wooooooooo

SimplePriest
Simple: Forum! Hear me! It is true, what many of you have heard.
The movie has gathered many fans, and as I speak that army of fans is drawing near to our forum.

Forum:

Simple: Believe me when I say we have a frustrating time ahead of us. But if we are to be prepared for it, we must first shed our fear of it! I stand here before you now, truthfully unafraid. Why? Because I've read something you have not? No! I stand here without fear because I remember. I remember that I am here not because of the posts that lie before me, but because of the Threads that lie behind me! I remember that for 138 days we have educated these fans. I remember that for 138 days they have sent their spoilers to confuse us. And after almost five months of threads, I remember that which matters most. We are still here!

big grin we're almost there guys... just over a month left!

JediHDM
YEAH!!! (I love you simple!!! haha *for those of you thinking wha...? its from the matrix sppof, MTV style*)

Still a month...well, at least we know that Metacortex goes online in 25 hours...

dvd is the way of the future

Korri
sad thats Bull$hit!!

burlyman
it certainly is
but its in the effort to wear out vhs..

burlyman
dont break your grans dvd player then laughing

Korri
