i have high hopes too.  but as i sat in the theatre watching reloaded, i
kept thinking "this is a blockbuster, not a cult classic".

another thing i wasn't entirely sure i liked was morpheus's transition
from mysterious to populist folk hero.  i kept thinking that the
wachowski brothers wanted fishburne to become more up-front and center.
i think i liked him better as a dark and shadowy guy.

i liked link, and appreciated his character development.

i loved the oracle's twist.  didn't see that coming.  btw, i read that
she died.  guess they need to rewrite the script for the third movie.

i wish we saw more of persephone, but what litle we saw was greatly
appreciated.  awesome character.  they definitely got this subplot down!
cat fight!  ;-P

the only part of the movie i didn't like was the techno-dance scene
after morpheus's speech.  in fact, it reminded me of the hated ewoks
scene in return of the jedi.   :)

i'm still thinking about the movie, trying to sort things out.  i'd
honestly be interested in hearing other peoples' opinions.

any target release date for matrix 3?
