The Matrix Revolutions - (2003 movie) poster

With killer-machines digging down to bypass the defences of the last refuge of mankind, a man with sudden magic powers magics with his powers.

Oh god, make it end. The writing is so fucking sloppy that the second movie and this third movie should not be watched by anyone, most especially fans of the first movie.

  1. The Matrix - (1999 movie)
  2. The Matrix Reloaded - (2003 movie)
  3. The Matrix Revolutions - (2003 movie)

Just like this poster, this movie has no brains.

The war against The Machines escalates, and it's a race between them digging down to Zion and The One pushing his way into the core of The Matrix for reason that wasn't explained very well.

If there are people out there who saw the first one and somehow get to this post before seeing this movie, please avoid this. Yes it's more of the same and it's "good", but this is a shit story that should be skipped.

This movie does not have an ending. It is part one of a mandatory two-movie binge.

  1. The Matrix - (1999 movie)
  2. The Matrix Reloaded - (2003 movie)

G.I. Joe - The Rise of Cobra - (2009 movie) poster

Newly-developed military nano-technology is stolen by terrorists in a plot to take over the world, and only a super-elite team chosen from the international best can stop them.

This movie is another example of both an astonishingly wide gap between its original audience and current audience, and a needless unimagination in original movie universe-building authorship.

  • Properly titled G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
  • Based on the G.I. Joe toy / cartoon franchise.
  • In association with Hasbro.

A man wakes, reconstructed as a cyborg, and finds himself hunted by unknown forces.

A fucking astonishingly great movie! Fast, bloody and fun. It's effortlessly hilarious, and without being a comedy.

I was initially rather annoyed at the found footage-style shaky camera, but it got so intuitive so fast that it really helped me get into the character and movie. If you like bloody non-stop action movies, definitely give this movie a chance.

Desperate for intelligence, a brutal killer is implanted with the memories of a dead operative.

A surprisingly good movie. While not wholly original, it's a good mix of interesting elements. This isn't really a spy movie, and has a surprisingly strong emphasis on characters.

When his missing daughter turns up with a mark on her back, an ex-con fights to keep them both safe.

Dirty, dangerous and to-the-point. As always, Mel Gibson plays this stereotypical role of his quite well. If you like him in his other gritty movies, you'll like this one.

An assassin tries to leave the life, and though she gets tracked down she survives and takes to a life of revenge.

Incredibly drawn out. I've seen it some time ago, but even attempting to re-watch this makes me cringe. This gets grouped into the category of "I'd be able to pay attention if the lead character was better looking." .. and like those other films, that still wouldn't be enough to make this a good movie.

This is a shit movie that only did well because it was unique at the time.

  • This is the whole of volume 1 and volume 2 put together.

    • I understand there is a DVD release, and it'll be shown in theatres for some reason. I also found a fan edit.
  • Properly titled Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair
  • There will probably be a sequel.

An archaeologist seeks an ancient Egyptian amulet to gain godlike powers.

A great fan film. I wish I had a better source than the 240p on YouTube, but I didn't actually look around at all.

An agent's god-daughter is kidnapped under political circumstances, and complexities necessitate him forming his own team to rescue her.

Quite a good movie. Excellent pacing and music.

A brainwashed CIA assassin who tried to retire-hide in India with his commonlaw-wife gets pulled into a mystery and stuff when she is killed in an attempt to frame him.

More of the same. Forgettable. It's not worth continuing this series.
