good movie, bad movie

the matrix: reloaded. More like, the matrix: all over again, but not as good as the first time.Just watched Better Luck Tomorrow. What a great movie. It’s really impressive, the way it managed to capture so well so many aspects of suppressed suburban high school society. Granted, it was something of a charicature, but still, I was amazed at how powerful it was. Or, maybe not powerful so much as just gripping, and strangely appealing with its violence.

It was definitely better than The Matrix: Reloaded, which I saw last night. It wasn’t anything special at all. Some good action, but the acting was terrible, and either I couldn’t follow the story (which is possible), or there just wasn’t one. I was hoping for more, but as it turned out even in my state of anticipation the movie wasn’t so impressive.

Better Luck Tomorrow. A cinematic head rush.
