I would, however contest that there is in REALITY very little pportunity to perform what could actually be termed "close-up" magic.

Don't get me wrong, I liked Matrix Reloaded a lot. its a lotta fun to watch. I just didn't like the pacing of the film at the start. and as in all 3 of the movies, I don't like bullettime and I thought it was marred by mediocre, if not poor acting.

I think the Wachowskis are very good storytellers though. however, they weren't as deep as most fans thought them to be during Reloaded's release.

That's a docu feature.

It can be more cinematic if they re-inacted it and made it into a real short. Smile

For those who said that you didn't enjoy the Matrix movies, did you even understand them? I think if you TRULY understood what they meant then you wouldn't be saying they were bad.

I understood them. It had very unique storytelling, as I've mentioned.
Once again, I don't like the bad acting, the slo mo sequences (even though they are the film's trademark) and I don't like the score. The dialogue is too On The Nose in my opinion.

I see very few newer movies. I liked Daredevil. I thought it had great villians unlike Spider Man which had a horrible Power Ranger look to the villian.

I understood them, but found them no more interesting than studying any religious theory (dont get me wrong, that can be very interesting!). It was a good story, but nothing new.

Anywho, the best of 2003 for me would have to be....

Pirates of the Carribean
LOTR
Bruce Almighty (OK, that might have been 2002!)

Ok, those are the only ones that I can remember seeing!! I don't really watch a whole bunch of movies!
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are

Ummm, everybody knows that Finding Nemo is the ultimate film of all time. Seeing as it came out in 2003, I think it wins this one.

Kill Bill Vol. 1 (but I'm still aching to see the second half)
Mystic River
Lost In Translation
Finding Nemo
Capturing The Friedmans
The Last Samurai
Irreversible (NOT an ideal date movie)

I've still yet to see American Splendor or Master & Commander.

Best Movies of 2003 in no real order Daredevil, X MEN 2, Pirates Of The Carribean, League Of Extraodinary Gentlemen, Master And Commander, The Hot Chick, Underworld, and Cabin Fever. Best DVD of 2003 has to be "The Crow" 2 disc Special edition I cannot wait until fourth Crow flick coming out in the cinema 2004 when is it out in america? Best CD Of 2003, Nirvana Box set and INXS Box Set. How can people not like Keanu Reeves he is a great actor he has an edgy way about him See "The Watcher".
