The Matrix..

I loved the movies.. Cool concept, great special effects and I could rock a leather trench coat with 300$ sun-glasses.. What do you think?

Yep, first one is good. Never got around to even seeing the third one.

Oh, and trenchcoats are still cool, despite a couple of antisocial rejects wearing them while on a killing spree.

I love 'em all. First is my favorite though despite what the critics say I really enjoyed the other two.

Great movies. I think most of the people who were disappointed with 2 and 3 are the ones who were in it for the special affects, not the story.

Anyone bought a Toyota Matrix just for the name? If so, then you win this contest.

That should be under the "I see Binary bit streams when I open my eyes" option. Forgot to add it.

Loved 1 & 3, the religious overtones of 3 were a bit hokey. Animatrix kicks butt. PS game is OK, used mostly with the cheat for multiplayer sparring. Path of Neo is in the used game bin..might have to ..just cuz

Making of, interviews...all the crap. I have them because they were part of the kit...I don't think I have watched them, (maybe some random drunk night haha)
