The Wachowskis Said To Be Working On New Matrix Project

https://www.empireonline.com/movies/new ... x-project/
This surprising development comes courtesy of an interview with John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum director Chad Stahelski (Keanu Reeves’ stunt double on all three Matrix movies, and stunt co-ordinator on the sequels), who told Yahoo Movies that Lana and Lilly Wachowski are dialling back into that green scrolling code. “I’m super happy that the Wachowskis are not just doing a Matrix, but they’re expanding what we all loved,” he said. “And if it’s anywhere near the level of what they’ve already done, it wouldn’t take more than a call to go, ‘Hey, we want you to be a stunt guy’ and I would probably go and get hit by a car.” Stahelski said he was ‘unsure’ if the pair would direct the Matrix project, but added: “If they wanted help, I would absolutely put down whatever I was doing to help them.”

I never really understood why the third one is regarded as one of the worst sequels ever made. Yeah, sure, I first saw it when was a kid, so maybe my nostalgia blinds me, but I can't for the love of god see how critics can say that Revolution is a terrible ending for the series while those same critics think movies like Iron Man 3 and Thor Ragnarok are good endings to their series's. I get it, critics almost always judge superhero movies differently than original movies, but seriously, even with that in mind, I think Revolution manages to close all of its lose ends and leave an emotional impact on everything, wheres those superhero movies I mentioned don't do that; they actually do the opposite. I mean, what are the problems? I heard some say that the ending sucks because it's just a big fight between Neo and Smith. Well, okay. But with that logic, Return of the King and Endgame suck ass, because they end with the exact same result.

I think people mostly dislike the third one because they spend a lot of time in Zion and not in the Matrix.

The first Matrix is all we need, Wachowskis. After Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas and Jupiter Ascending... Thanks, but no thanks.

They need an amazing script and something creative this time around but I think this is a tough one to crack. I'm totally not interested in the Morpheus story at all.

Cloud Atlas is a masterpiece though

I thought that was a nice juxtaposition compared to the first two films*. Besides being the third of a trilogy it still feels too much like the entire film is a third act. There are still some good ideas in it but overall it functions too much as a 'we need to tie some things up and give this a conclusive ending' rather than it standing more on its own. Know what I mean?

The first film is still the best but I just love Reloaded, it flows so well and it's highly entertaining. I always watch Revolutions too to seal the trilogy off lol. It's spectacular and has got a few effective emotional scenes, but it's not as multilayered as the first two films.

*the fight scene prior to he club scene is just way too reminiscent of anything we've seen before. I think he Zion action is all but that, and that's why I think it's such a great sequence. With it of course functioning as quite a spectacular action sequence.

All three films continue to age wonderfully btw. I recently rewatched them all, the 4K remasters, they're truly stunning.

The first film works as a great stand-alone.

The exclusion of Marcus Chong kills my interest in the sequels.

I liked Reloaded as a sequel that expands upon the world of the first, but I don't like having the story forced into a trilogy format.

I love all three films, and certainly like Revolutions much more than the masses do. The slow-mo shot of Neo and Smith slamming into the ground still holds up to special effects standards today.

The first film is relentless from the first time they go into the matrix, onward. Love it. Same with the second film, from Neo going into the matrix till the end of the freeway chase scene. It's just great cinema all around.
