I was entertained but can see how most people disliked or hated this movie.

There was too much of a "Free Guy" feel the first half. And the second half felt forced.

Just watched the original Matrix with my boys. 11 and 10. I was surprised how difficult the concepts were for them to grasp. Particularly the phone thing and the fact that agents were programs. I guess when I was their age we were learning about how to create simple computer programs (I only remember “goto” as a command) because it was so new and they couldn’t do much for kids yet. Kids now are surrounded by computing and largely take it for granted. I don’t think my boys understand what their “gaming” computers are truly capable of. They just know they can play games on them. So I don’t think they understand what a “program” is. Overall they were kind of bored. I was bummed because I’ve been excited to watch it with them.

The original Matrix can be a bit heady with the philosophy concepts in it. Are your boys maybe just a hair young for them? I'm wondering if they were like 15 and 16 if the results would have been different. I think it would have made a difference for me at those ages.

Maybe. I think they also skew less mature than our generation at the same respective ages. They also found a lot of the set up boring.

Loved Free Guy. The philosophical underpinnings of that were completely awesome to me. I'm a huge matrix trilogy fan based on the similar philosophy...but, we went for the opening and IMAXed it and mind wasn't blown. That being said, I look forward to watching it a few more times to catch some things I might have missed...alot like Inception.

Free Guy was The Godfather Part 2 in comparison to this Matrix movie.

Every time I think back to Resurrections, I figure out more and more horrible things about it. It might be MegaForce level awful.

You don’t watch a lot of bad movies do you?

Your reaction to this movie makes me think there is something else going on with you. Hope you are ok. It’s no masterpiece, but it’s not a horribly made film.

This was a 3 day break. No reason to assume someone disagreeing with you has some sort of issue
