Down with Evil Critics!!

As some of you may have read, thier are some "critics" who rated Revolutions very low, like a "C" or even "D". I did see some "A's", but the average grade, according to Yahoo! Movies is C-. When I read these scumbags revies, I wantet to kill them. To take out my anger, I created this thread all of you who read these "reviews" and wanted to express your anger.
To start off, I'm guessing the reviewers were too old or thickheaded to understand the full concept of the movie. Now, I haven't seen Revolutions, but I'm guessing that it's more action than philosiphy, which is fine since the first two have explained most of the concepts. These people need to rethink their reviews and must their reviews like a Matrix fan would.
I just have to say, many people were disappointed all the questions weren't answered...
I, however, saw that as an advantage... why let it stop there???
some critics think theyre cool to diss on a movie as big as the matrix. its really become a fad in the film industry. like roger ebert, he thought star wars ep. 4 was the worst movie of that decade, and look whats happened to that franchise!
i completely agree with you guys, i might understand the critics if they were giving their opinion to like a film school or somethin but, they have to remember that theyre giving their opinion to the genereal audience, not other film critics! theyre just showin off!
I know it's the critics job to take on an unbiased view, and if they think it sucks, well, so be it. I don't think revolutions is perfect, but you don't need to find one thing wrong with it to trash it. There's plenty of good things about it, and it should be good when I see it.
I think the critics are too bored to sit down and understand the movie. After all, ask anyone of the if he hated LOTR. No one will say no. But LOTR didn't have the suspense and beauty and mindwork the Matrix had! It's just another adventure (not that the movies are not good-in contrary)!
Yeah, it's always easy to simply assume that people who didn't like the movie simply 'didn't get it'. That's not always the case.
MC MIKE, l guesss thats the whole point of the matrix.to leave us talking dude.the best the movie could do is end the war and it did that.now what do u want to understand?thats for you to ponder.l mean in the whole triology thats what neo was doing.asking the qustion why.so why must we get it on a silver plate.thats why l differ from the critics and ppl whoi say matrix ending was not good.l think it was genius coz it was the unexpected.how many times do ppl complain that movie are predicteble?
we all wanted the matrix and machines destroyed and the sun to re-appear but what wrong with a truce.those who want to be freed from the matrix will get that.sounds good to me.coz l never thot of that before.what the matrix left for us was irrelevent discussions.like what will happen with neo in the machine world coz l never saw him die but saw him seeing the lights as he was led away by the machine.
l loved this matrix and yeah l have questions, but l know they are not the sort to change anything but more to understand the trilogy, like neo finally did.
critics in general don't know shite. Music critics are the worst though.
Uhh... that's why I said I saw that as an ADVANTAGE!
And you need to work on your punctuation dude!
one guy gave it a 1.5 out 5!!!! he should die!!
lol just another adventure, LOTR IS 1000 times more than just an adventure
and lotr carries far more emotions and beauty to the screen than the matrix ever will
im not a real big fan of lotr. sorry i just think the mid-evil stuff is old and boring unlike the new future and things like that.
Why do people insist on comparing LOTR to matrix, they have very little in common.
Critics suck! They don't understand any of the story! Still.....the fans r lining up outside of the doors!, and Revo. is making A LOT of $$$$ SO screw 'em!
I NEVER listen to critics. They are just a bunch of yahoos who don't understand the film and think nobody else will.
And alot of those fans who are lining up outside of the door, are leaving very disapointed with the finale.
Maybe those r just meatheads who aren't really fans! How could u not get Revo?
Hail Omega! As always!
The fact is, if in order to understand the entire story of the matrix, and to like the movies you have to play a bad game, watch the movies numerous times, and over analize every little bit of it...then the critics negative reviews are completely just
The critics review movies on how strong a movie is without any other criteria other then the film itself, this is their job. They are reviewing the movie for people who aren't already in love with the series and who haven't played the bad game or seen the animatrix, the general public, and if you have to do all these things to enjoy the movie, then it indeed is not a good movie.
Evolution is a strange word, since ETM is a very poor game with many bugs and typical action sequences. Basically, take away the matrix setting, you have a generic action game.
But, I still believe that if in order to enjoy a movie, you have to indulge yourself in other mediums to learn more about the movie, then the movie itself can't be that strong. If it were, people would be feeling alot more satisfied by it.
double post, sorry.
of course the difference between the matrix finale and return of the jedi, is that return of the jedi answered all questions and gave a sense of closure to the series, and from what I've heard about revolutions, it does not.
A finale should wrap up the story, give a sense of closure, leave you feeling somewhat satisfied in the story, since revolutions doesn't do this for people who haven't gotten deeply into the story of the matrix and gone off to other mediums to try to expand their knowledge, the complaints of the critics are just in my eyes, since they are reviewing the movie only, not the game, or the spinoff anime sequences.
Also, ETM was indeed a poor game in it's own right, granted it may have served up some useful information to the matrix story, the gameplay, levels, and engine was mediocre at best.... I ask you this, would you have liked the game were it not set in the matrix world?
A reason I did not like ROTJ, which was far too neat, and a positive boon to Revolutions which was NOT part of a series that in any way would benefit from total explanation.
Sorry, I didn't mean that ALL questions should be answered, bad choice of words on my part.
But it should still give a sense of closure to the series in some way or another, which from what I've heard it doesn't do.
It closes the story it started; it does not wrap up the entire setting. Of the many criticisms I can give Revolutions I really don;t see that being one.
From what I've heard, you're in the minority there. That's the main cricism I've been hearing from people, critics and the general public.
Just people wanting everything answered- their own mistake, in my opinion.
As I wrote someplace else, most people disliked Matrix because the didn't get the answers they were expecting.
Sorry you've paid 8,5$ to see the film, I've paid 5EU to see the film, the W. bros paid around 100 mil$ to make it.
They have explained almost everything.
If you don't like gather the money buy the rights of the film and make the real Matrix end as you like it.
I give a 9,5/10 to the film and the half point is lost because the explanation wasn't easy to get.
There's the rub. The explanation WAS NOT easy to get. Fine. The movie was for the 'intellectuals' among us. A really good movie reaches a broader base of people. they COULD of given more closure but still left some doubts or possibilities. They COULD of added some depth to the CHARACTERS themselves. Neo, who was suppose to free minds - turned into a NORTON-ANTI VIRUS program. My bet?? This 'finale' won't last 3 months in the theatres. Theory's and deep revelations are all the rage for die-hard KILL-THE-CRITICS matrix nuts. Keep reaching for the blue pill. But history's a *****. This will go down as a loser.
- Not Evil, I just didn't like the movie.
Whoa -- this Ebert comment is waaay off base.
Has it ever occurred to your people that to a movie critic with 40 years of experience, the Matrix is just a trilogy that started out with some of the most intriguing sci-fi to hit the screens in a long time, only to cop out to cliche land?
First, not only did he NOT choose "A New Hope" as the worst movie of that decade, but it is in his list of "great movies" (see the entire list at the suntimes website)
Second, Ebert did not "diss on" Revolutions, he gave it three stars out of four - a very good review.
Third, Ebert is often the champion of little known movies, because he seems to judge them for what they are, not for how close they come to Citizen Kane. Case in point: a three star review for "Bubba Ho-Tep"
To paraphrase your comment - I think that some Matrix fans think they're cool to diss on a critic who dares to diss on the Matrix, because it makes them feel superior. Remember, someone else not liking your favourite move doesn't mean they didn't "get it", it means they didn't like it.
Personally, the first movie was one of the best I'd seen, in any genre, ever. Would it make my personal top 10? Maybe not, but it did blow me away. The next two? Good, but not great.
As for comments on the Star Wars franchise - if rampant commercialism in lieu of interesting story development is the measure of success, I hope the Matrix franchise fails.
The Matrix movies are for more youthful, open minds. Liek Morpheous said, once a mind gets past a certain age, it is hard to understand the truth, or something like that. My point is the Matrix should be rated by Matrix fans. Most of the people that watched or will watch are near-die-hard fans of it. Some Joe Shmoe won't not go see it because it recieved a poor rating, it becaus ethe movie doesn't apply to him. Now, if Matrix fans thought it sucked, then maybe it did. It takes a certain level of openess to understand the meaning of it. Once reason why it think the Matrix is so good is that for every time it anwers one ?, it creates two more for debate. So, for all the those people who said that Revolutions didn't have good closure is that there will be more. Maybe not in another movie, but perhaps in another form. It's the ? that drive us and if they are all answered, then what fun would there to discuss it further
i have a message for the critics...
http://www.killermovies.com/forums/images/moresmilies/fyou.gif sit and spin assholes!!
I just saw Revolutions this Sunday and it was amazing. There are no words that can describe it. Anybody who said it sucked desevres to die. Moswt likely they never saw the other two movies or watched the Animatrix and played ETM. This is the only way for them to get the full story. Some people said the ending also sucked. I believe it to be a perfect ending. At first glance, you think you have closure, but at a second runthrough, you find old and new unansered q's that are part of the Matrix legacy. Anybody over the age of 50 most likely wouldn't of gotten it.
