What shades does Neo use? I'm thinking of buying an imitation.
I got replica Oakley C Wires which is almost identical to Neo's but I bought blue lense. Yazid, dun forget, I am Neo for Matrix. Got my Trenchcoat guns sunglasses.
Here's the link to a site selling the actual/replica shades:
Matrix 2 Sunglasses .com
Can use it as a reference
Yazid, I checked the hair accesories shop beside AMK Watson and they don't have the shades. Maybe you can try Yishun there? Will go on a hunt tomolo for a budget one too.
Bugis Street sure have.
Hey Xeno, Neo heh?
Then u shud change ur name to XeNeo. Then I guess I could be Agent Smith.
Frankly, after reading some posts at RPF, I now know who that guy who tried to kill Neo and later survived the ?? is really is. My, my, Agent Smith is really one hell of a fellow!
OK, just brainstorming some of the Matrix-y themes and stuff, based on what I've gathered and understood from the first and second movies so far.....
- Having Choices, Making Choices, the Problem of Choice
- Nature vs. Nurture
- Free Will vs. Control, Slavery, Bondage
- The Nature of Control
- Free your mind, Belief vs. Fear, Doubt & Disbelief
- Man vs. Machines
- The interconnctedness of man & machines
- The religious references
- The numerical meanings
- The mythological references
- The Nature of Reality & Perspective, What's real vs. What isn't real
- Repetition, Deja Vu
- The computer terminology used in these movies
- Birth, Life & Death
- Being awakened, being aware, not being able to sleep, being unconscious, having dreams that are so real, and other sleep-related metaphors and references
- Causality, Cause & Effect
- Questions & Answers, the Search for Truth
- Rules, Borders, Boundaries, being able to work around them, to break or bend them
- Neo as an anomaly, both inside and outside of the Matrix
- A hero's journey, knowing the path vs walking the path, the idea that one can only learn thru' experience and that book-learning/spoon-feeding doesn't work 'cos there is no spoon... hehheh!
**Sorry, I couldn't help myself there!**
Am I still making sense so far??
Yes and one more thing...
You always look cool in black regardless of whether you're the good guy or the bad guy.
how about choice?
And one more thing, it pays to be an agent. they are juz sooooo cooool
Smith : Me, Me, Me ! Me too... Thats my favourite line !!! Three LoLz for that !!!
how about that french guy?
"i love cursing in french...it's like wiping yr a** with silk"...
what's yr fav quote from the film anyway?
for me one of my fav's is the one where simth meets Neo & morpheus...
"i want what u want mr Anderson,i want everything..."-smith
"would that include a bullet from this gun?"-morpheus
I like the part when Neo wants to see the oracle and they was the guardian.
Neo: What was that for?
Guardian: I wanted to if you were really the One
Neo: You could have juz ask.
I still don't get it HOW the Revolution trailer we saw last Friday was different. The Singapore Censored Board at work (couldn't be cause some scenes wasn't shown in the online one)? Cutting down the trailer time? Something special for those outside North America? There is actually TWO teaser trailers for Revolution (aka AOTC Style)? ?
One thing, we don't get to see Agent Smith laugh like a Baka (IMHO ).
Now, my favourite part in the trailer posted online will be:
AGENT SMITH: Mr. Anderson . . . Welcome back! We miss you . . .
NEO: It's end tonight!
Oh! Don't forget the part when the Oracle offered Neo Sweet which is the Red Pill.
Oracle: I like sweet.
Oh Yazid, if you want the Official The Matrix Shades, can try Nanyang Optical. BUT be warned that it's inaccurate. Here's the ones sold at the official site for comparision:
I may be looking to get an accurate Neo Reloaded Shades to match my suit (hunt down in Sg or order online). Still waiting for feedbacks from RPF and ASAP members on which company offers the one that doesn't fall off within a day.
are there 2 Revolution trailers??
I didnt catch the one in reloaded but i did download one from the net.. dont know if it's the same? but according to some pple they say that the 1 on the net is the Revolution trailer that comes with Enter the matrix ....
anyone can shed some light? the trailer i saw starts & ends with ghost & nioble talking... it show's the Smith,Neo showdown in the rain etc...
Not sure about the Revolutions trailers yet... haven't seen the online one, but thanks to DE for the link
I'm gonna try to go watch The Animatrix (aka The Final Flight Of The Osirus) today, and right now, I'm doing abit of background reading... yeah, my Matrix homework, so to speak... LOL!
I'm reading "Exploring The Matrix" (Ed: Karen Haber) and "World Mythology" (Ed: Roy Willis), and I think I also need to bone up on my Philo readings... LOL!
My Matrix fan friends tell me to also read "Simulacra & Simulation" by Jean Baudrillard (sp.?), and the 2 other books that Keanu's mentioned in the "Matrix Revisited" DVD.
Apparently, the Wachowski bros told him to read those 3 books BEFORE he got round to reading the script!! So I guess those books have got to be pretty important reading then - hehheh!
If you watch the 1st Matrix movie carefully, you'll see that Neo actually hides his disks in this hollowed out book, and that book happens to be "Simulacra & Simulation" by Jean Baudrillard (sp.?)... cool, huh??
wow... thanks for the trivial JJ ... do u think they'll release the animatrix on DVD here? after all i dont see NC-16 shows released on DVD here...
anyway FYI ... a Revolutions Trailer Link: http://www.movie-list.com/m/matrixrevolutions.shtml
Not sure if it's the same as the movie one...
Peacekeeper - That one's different from the movie one.
Another bit of Matrix trivia:
In a version of the script that didn't fully make it to the theatres, Apoc was the writer of the Four Horsemen virus. Hence his name.
Nice... Am I the only one not making a Matrix costume here???
hey Yazid_Skywalker ... yr not alone ...
hey jedi clare... so what's the difference?? I didnt get to see the movie one...
Hehehehheee, Yazid, then why not join our resident Agent Smith and be his Clone? (Now where did he go these days . . . ).
Well, Peacekeeper, you should catch the Sg one.
***BEWARE THE SPOILERS!!***
Watched The Animatrix today, and it was not just the Final Flight of the Osirus, but ALL of the Animatrix shorts at one go! Whoo-hoo!!
Needless to say, I'm a happy camper for having gotten to see ALL of them today - haha!
I understood just about everything in all those shorts, I thought they were definitely easier to understand and would definitely be more accessible to the general public.
I know there were some things which tied in with Matrix Reloaded, like the mention of the Osirus, and Niobe having received the letter/package from the Osirus.
Another thing which I think ties in with the movie is the boy who says that Neo saved him, if I'm not mistaken he's the kid in the Animatrix short called Kid's Story.
Not sure yet if anything else in the shorts ties in with Matrix Reloaded just yet, guess I'm gonna have to watch the movie another time to spot more of those little details... LOL!
For those who wanna know & those who wanna watch the movie again, just to spot these - well, here they are.....
Matrix Reloaded movie mistakes
If you ask me though, I'd say that it was all probably just some glitch in the Matrix - LOL!
Heheheheeee, that site is putting all our SW Easter Eggs hunting to a shame!
