I think you're the only one who thinks this looks bad.

Judging by the fact that I have 3 upvotes on a weekdays night and the 3 immediate reaction says its bad, I am not only one.

 

No offence but you are more in line with the film twitter views, I am more in line with what general audience thinks. 

 

Edit: and there is nothing wrong about it, in fact better. film twitter is just ahead in time. my personal taste is more in line with that but business is different. @lorddemaxus

I'm not a major fan of The Matrix but the trailer looks cool. I think the New Nightmare postmodern approach is cool and can reclaim the appropriation of "red-pill" to tell story of individualism. 

 

Also, if you're a fan of movies in general, shouldn't a gigantic megabudget studio sequel like this interest you? Don't you want something wacky and awe-inspiring?

No offence but you're not. And there's one person who is just indifferent to the trailer. And it's not even just a trailer too. Post the whole website: https://thechoiceisyours.whatisthematrix.com/uk/

Yeah my personal taste don't, but my business sense do, a lot. Not perfectly but a lot.

Well, we're talking about personal tastes here. The trailer so far on the internet has been well-received outside of just film twitter. For some reason whenever something you don't seem to like is well-received, you just point to film twitter as if they rule all movie-related discourse on the internet or something.

It doesn't look that wacky to me. Just looks like the same stuff we have seen from this series previously.

This is what it feels making a discussion out of nothing?

 

Charlie could have just 3,4,5 people that agree with him and that won't make his first comment wrong.

TBH I didn't even check the reception online. Just my 2 bits.

How is your situation currently? Many family in Vietnam under current lockdowns...keep tracking the numbers and number of new cases just can't seem to flatten

Its weird. Last year and earlier this year it was like there is no pandemic in SEA and now they just can't seem to get it controlled.

It's good though. 90 pages now. We won't hit 100 but let's see how far it can go.

I expect Matrix 4 to be on level of the sequels for better or worse, but at least we’ll get some good action scenes.

 

(the fact Keanu came back when he didn’t need to gives me some hope that maybe he sees something worth doing? Call it fool’s hope.)

The plot being very meta is really intriguing and Wachowski coming off Cloud Atlas and Jupiter Ascending makes me believe, she won't make the same old again

For me meta can go more bad than good, though that descriptor itself could mean a variety of things, but it immediately made me think of some of the meta stuff in TLJ which I hated (thought it was a complete misrepresentation of previous films).
