The time is coming

by Suw on November 3, 2003

The last few weeks have seen some delicate behind-the-scenes negotiations, arrangements and gentle reminders (i.e. lots of nagging), but finally I can announce that I shall be going to see Matrix: Revolutions at the IMAX North in Bradford on 29 Nov. I’m going with my pal Vince and some of his friends and am expecting… er, actually I’m not expecting much.

It’ll be much fun to hang out with Vince, Carl and Seb, but I’ve got no hopes at all whatsoever for the film itself, although I suspect that the fight scenes will again look rather groovy on the Very Big Screen.

I went to see Reloaded with minimal expectations and thus enjoyed the film immensely, more than many people I know. So once again I’m avoiding all hype, trailers, interviews, features, makings of, etc. etc. etc., in the hope that I won’t be disappointed if I expect nothing.

I live in Arseendofnowhere so technically it shouldn’t be that difficult to avoid the media, but I have seen Matrix related documentaries in the TV listings which I was sorely tempted to watch. Keanu is splashed across magazine stands every which way I turn and the urge to start stocking up on copies of SFX in anticipation has been hard to resist. Bbut I know that abstinence is for the best. Really.

We’ll be doing the geeky thing and watching Reloaded first, which will set us up nicely for our evening out, and I will of course give you a full and complete opinion as to whether Revolutions redeems Reloaded or whether the W Bros actually have lost their collective head somewhere in their own small intestine (or, in Larry’s case, possibly someone else’s).
