LOL... It was better than Batman. (flamesuit on). :cool:

Haha, that's just WRONG! :p

I could watch Batman over and over. I'm already bored to death looking at the Matrix on Fox. Bah, I'd rather watch Dateline NBC:p
The very first DVD i ever own was the Matrix.
Ronin for me :D


lol.....batman.

150 min time slot
136 min official time (courtesy of imdb)
that would be normally 14 minutes of commercials (uncut)
normally there are about 15 minutes in an hour show, so along this line there should be about 37 minutes of commercials for this 2 and a half hour slot

that leaves you with about 23 minutes that could very well have been cut from the movie to be aired on network tv

I can hear it in the background, but I am not watching it, I'd rather rent/borrow the dvd if I really wanted to see it.

True Matrix freaks would be watching it on TV as well. There's something to be said about a movie that's on TV even if you own it on DVD/video

Oh well, everyone is entitled to their opinion, I guess. Look at the bright point, now you have an extra hour to find more car previews and PDA reviews to post! :)

Yes, even if they are wrong... sigh... the matrix has style... the music (not the soundtrack music, but the symphony music) fits so well with every scene its amazing... so well choreographed. the camera angles are so great...

while keanu is a crappy actor, he only has a few lines.. most of the acting falls on fishburne and weaving, which is good.

Unbelievable. You call The Matrix "mediocre at best" and you actually own Ronin. I didn't think anyone owned that movie. It's definitely one of the top five worst movies I've ever seen.

Amazing, you have an opinion that differs from someone else!

I wasn't being that serious. I fully realize he can like and watch whatever movie he wants, and he probably doesn't give a damn what I think. I was just saying that I really didn't like Ronin.

Remember folks, you can have full frontal nudity and blood splattered on the walls, but god forbid you should hear a naughty word.

LoL...if you thought it sucked the first time I don't think the network television hack-job is going to make you like it anymore.

Rent the DVD or something :)
