There can only be CHAOS!
After reading all of this, I remember hearing a rumor about this maybe a year ago, thought it was some quack trying to get money. But if there's evidence of this, then well... let the courts decide. The Matrix is one of my favorite movies, and I never "worshipped the Wachowskis" or felt the need to remain loyal. The movie is great, and nothing really can change that.
However, if she says that the Wachowskis did Reloaded and Revolutions by themselves, perhaps that would shed more light upon why the sequels weren't as popular.
But tell me, of all the books and references out there that have some of the same principles that the Matrix is based on and one that is even shown in the movie (Simulacra and Simulation), why would the Wachowski bros. choose this women's story that is a piece of crap compared to the other books that cover the same topics? This women is a complete nut job, I'm sorry. Some of you probably haven't read some of her statements telling other blacks to join her in her fight against whites in the entertainment business and says that that is the whole reason behind this. And I suggest you read her story once, and you will see how bad it is and how it doesn't come close to having the same story of the Matrix or Terminator.
She directly submitted the idea for the film to them in the early 80's. If they cared to make a film about it before then, they probably would have. But, it seems as if they aren't as ingenuitive as we once were led to believe.
I think it should be noted that in her story there is absolutely nothing like The Matrix in it- the object, as opposed to the theme title. As in no virtual world, or anything like that.
Apparently she thought that part was silly. Mind you, I read that from a site, could just be rumour that she made that comment, because frankly there is a lot of nonsense floating around out there about this, from that first erroneous article onwards.
"We've got maybe seconds before Darth Rosenberg grinds everybody into Jawa burgers and not one of you buds has the midi-chlorians to stop her!"
But that was never the case because it was widely known that they gained a lot of their ideas from material that had been around for hundreds of years, it's just the way they combined it all into one setting that made it so great.
This is coming from her official site, and you tell me if you don't have some doubts about her after looking at her site. I mean she's charging money for CD's to hear her talking!!!! Please, can somebody shut this woman the hell up already.
Sounds like a bitter ex-Black Panther, lol. The thing is, she's apparently in line to win her case, if she hasn't already done so, that said, us being outsiders to the legal proceedings, know absolutely nothing as to what ultimately made the judges decision
So, our speculation is strcitly that, not to mention mostly biased, and unfairly prejudiced.
o well people it happened that way and there is no way in changing it, I don't think there are rights or wrongs in this media excitement so.. they based their film on her story, they didn't do it exactly the same. And their point was to tell people that there is something else than just believing in god etc. her point was to get people to have faith in god again from what I read.
if this lady is suing over the terminator and the matrix. she is just insane. the wachowski brothers have always been open to reveal that many different japanese anime's inspired the matrix. I am sure this lady just wrote a story similar to the matrix and is pissed off that she never had her stuff publised before the brothers made it into a billion dollar franchise. The fact of the terminator is ridiculous. James cameron dremt about the machine when he was borke and living in his car. Creative minds think alike. this chik is just crazy and delusional.
