    ...people 'ripping off' The Matrix. In particular, the much cummed over 'bullet time' effect.

    I remember reading a few years back in some DVD magazine that they were upset with Max Payne's (PS2 Game) use of the effect. I'd have seen it as more of a positive than a negative myself in that it's paying homage, blah, blah, blah.

    Anyway, I was some IMDB style site and came accross some fans bitching about it again, siding with the Wachowski brothers. They quoted a few lines from Silver (their equally ugly spokesman) with more bitching.

    I mean, fair enough if you want something to remain exclusive to your movie because your a complete twat, then fine. I don't see them moaning about the token 'Keanu close up as he peels his face from the dusty floor, mouth dripping with blood' being whored by other actors and films alike though... Suprising since that probably accounts for 90% of the combined trilogy.

    Anyway, if they wish to be twats about it, fair enough. But the dude who put the idea to them, needs to tell them he either used it already or jacked it, because when I see that roof top scene in the first Matrix, I think of Blade.

    all they had to do was take a philosophy 101 course and their entire screenplay would be written after reading some descartes and some "brain in the vat" mumbo jumbo

    I think they should be honored by others using something that they made popular.

    i remember them saying they were inspired by the slow motion done in the anime AKIRA

    dario argento.....


    opera


    "The shot is stunning: she peers through the peep-hole, the killer fires his gun, the bullet travels through the hole, strikes her in her right eye, exits from the back, pushing up her hair, and hits the phone several feet away. Daria then topples backward in slow motion and sprawls on the floor. Pure Argento."

    you actually see the bullet come out the chamber....through the barrel........shatters the glass of the peep hole....then goes in the bitches eye...comes out the back of the head all in slo-mo...and then hits the phone that the other bitch was gonna use to dial 911 at regular speed.....

    godly

    dario is the god
