I watched the Matrix. Finally. And I can say that I really really enjoyed it. Special effects were really awesome. Action scenes were really awesome. Actors were really awesome, especially Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith.
There’s something weird about me, though. When I watch movies, I usually prefer there to be as least romance as possible. Less cheesy gushy kissing in the rain scenes, if they can help it. I’m like a small child, squirming in my chair when I watch a particularly passionate kissing scene. So during the last part of the movie where Neo (Keanu Reeves) dies and Trinity brings him back to life with her love, I felt really weird. OMG and now they’re kissing!
But when I read books, I love the romance. I get disappointed if there isn’t some romance in it. If I had read the Matrix instead of watching it, I would have been complaining about the lack of romance. (Come on. The final scene?)
Does anybody know what I’m talking about, or am I crazy here?
I am going to watch Matrix: Reloaded tonight.
