All I want for Christmas
Watched the new Matrix this weekend. Not as good as I hoped, and I really thought that the fight scenes in the first two were much better.
Can I wish for something for my employer? I can? Oh good.
I'd just like a snazzy new shuttle system with all the trimmings. Plus a laptop would be nice.
APU owners might just want to consider throwing some armor over the cockpit area. That way you can play squid skeet for longer without having your face ripped off.
Bruce: I just saw Revolutiuons last night and my first thought when I saw the APU's was "where the hell is the armor for the operator?"
Have not seen the movie yet, but isn't that the Aliens loader tool?
Oh yeah, and isn't the whole concept a complete rip-off of the mobile infantry suits from "Starship Troopers"? Which was written in what year? 1950-something?
The website says that the armour was removed from the original design to enable better view of the actors.
Haven't you heard of transparent armor?
A job, my contract runs out end of year.
They could have at least replaced the armor with a windsheild. We could pretend that it is really really hard glass.
After the second movie, I am not particularly interested in the welfare of the characters.
Regarding the oft lauded fight scenes from number two - maybe myself and my wife are the exception, however most extended fight scenes left us scrambling to find the fast forward button (we just had our daughter at the time of the theatrical release, so it was left as a rental) - These scenes could only go on for so long (like 5 minutes...) before it's just monotonous and unnecessary, and visual pointlessness.
Peace on earth and some really groovy war toys.
...is my two front teeth...
On the matrix: Much like the Highlander series, they took an fantastic first movie, and then repeatedly lowered the bar.

I will have an embrio for the week days, but still want an APU for the weekend :)
I dunno -- what's an APU?
Oh, wait, never mind.
