I saw the movie. Yahoo rented out a theater and a ton of us saw it this afternoon. Yawn.

I was going to write about the whole experience, but then I found that someone else summed up my thoughts nicely.

My friend Armando (who also works at Yahoo!) got a ticket, and some pass for all the food he could eat, but he wound up staying at work instead.

I on the other hand, went with my employees (I dont work for Yahoo tho) to Century 23. (note to self and others, dont go to Century 23, theatre sucks)

I was VERY disappointed in the movie. As typical nowadays, the more hype there is about something, the worse it is, and it was VERY true about this movie. My whole group felt the same way as I.

The really sad thing is that there were so many other ways to tell the story. We know that Neo is going to live so no matter how spectacular the fights are, they're going to be dull. We don't care that the rest of the meager crew has a life away from the ship. No, really, it's fluff and the smatterings of time are wasted screen space (Particularly the pre-apocolyptic rave session, even if it was a helluva wrap party)

You know what would have been better? Present the story from the point of view of the machines. They're the far more interesting characters right now.
