    Um. The whole "What is the Matrix dot com" viral (when viral was viral not "popular youtube video") was massive. The whole internet was talking about The Matrix, as Gremmi said earlier, it ticked very much every box of the time.
    The whole internet back in 1999 was mostly on dialup...and the average punter thought it belonged to the geeks.
    Well, I can't account for stupidity of the masses :)

    (But dial-up was already old hat in 1999)

    Speaking of keanu, heres a cross between Ninja Scroll and the matrix

  • Deleted user 31 July 2013 18:39:11
    Yeah, there's some sort of weird underlying idea that The Matrix suddenly came out of nowhere with very little marketing, but it was probably one of the largest (and arguably most innovative) marketing campaigns of the 90s. WhatIsTheMatrix.com had a colossal buzz about it, even off the internet. The problem was that people were new to viral marketing and didn't quite know what to make of it (especially those without internet access), so the movie ended up being a bit of a slow burner at the box office.

    At a similar time - Blair Witch also had a pretty decent viral ad campaign.

    Looking back it writes itself, but it was pretty cool for the time.
  • Deleted user 31 July 2013 18:55:27
    Blair Witch had an incredible campaign. Most of the trailers didn't even show the film, just the audience reactions, and the internet of the time made the fake websites seem plausible - one of those things that will basically never be replicated again, despite the efforts of Paranormal Activity et al. I'm pretty sure that it still holds the record for budget-to-box-office ratio.

    I don't man, he just done that documentary side by side, which considering his output as an actor, is quite a feat. He really seems interested by film theory, so it be quite interesting to see what he does from here.

    A professor is Japanese History at the University I work at was hired as a consultant for that film. Looking at that trailer, either the professor is a fraud or Keanu didn't listen to a word he said.

    He gave away loads of the money he got from the Matrix to the special FX crew didnt he, may not be the best actor but a pretty decent guy for doing that.

    Empire of the Sun - 6/10

    It doesn't get much cheesier than this. Entertaining though.

    Read miracles of life recently, it was much better.
  • Deleted user 31 July 2013 21:43:03
    Wolverine: Origins.

    Shit. The last 20 minutes is kind of cool and fits in well, but the rest is rubbish. Some shockingly bad CGI- those horrible shots of the first time he get his blades.

    Its like half a origin story, the montage at the beginning would have been ripe for a good story. It would have been more interesting than what happened. I like my comics, but havn't read much x- men, so not sure what the origin stories are like. will check some out though.

    Patrick stewart look liked he had a face lift but it melted afterwards.

    4/10

    @joelstinton

    Sadly, the new one isn't that much better either.

    : (

    The Wolverine doesn't offer much in the way of excitement or suspense, although the story is better than I halfheartedly expected.
  • Deleted user 31 July 2013 21:57:18
    Oh dear :( i would have easily given the first a 3, but i did think the last 20 were worked in well to what is become , so i was generous and gave it an extra point.

    I'm seemingly one of the very few people who like X-Men Origins: Wolverine. For me it manages to strike the right balance between talkie bits and action set pieces. It helps that I don't know or care about what goes on in the comics and apparently some fans were upset with how Deadpool was handled but again that means nothing to me. Some of the special effects are shocking bad for some reason but I can make it through the movie without ever feeling bored.

    The Wolverine

    I'm really surprised at how much I liked it. They were only showing the 3D version and for once I didn't mind. The Japanese girls are breathtaking, each for a different reason. I got a very strong X-Men vibe from it (I liked all 3 movies), one that I found entirely absent in the previous Wolverine film.

    A strong 8/10 on the silly film of the summer scale. I'm not even going to try and rate it on a general scale.

    @HarryPalmer If you are talking about the film based on the Ballard book try the book. It's not at all cheesy. The tone of the film is totally different. It's Speilberg'd to the max. They could never have included some of the stuff in the book though as it's proper grim in places and a bit of a mind fuck that some one could go through that and not come out nuts. Mind you having read a bit of Ballard in my time he was certainly not quite normal.

    7/10
    Was really enjoying it but the last 20 mins was crappy :-(
  • Deleted user 31 July 2013 23:52:56
    Wolverine. Total and utter gash.

    You know a movie is going to be scraping the barrel when it throws not one but two contrived and cheesy dream sequences at you in the first five minutes.

    My wife enjoyed for all the right reasons I'm sure.

    @glaeken - Yeah I love Ballard, Miracles of Life is his autobiography, and it talks a great deal about the events of Empire, which is why I wanted to watch it.

    You're right, it's Speilberg at his most sentimental and obvious.

    The Social Network

    Very well told; didn't think I would enjoy this but I did. Late on, Zuckerberg gets reassured "you're not an ass****". Judging him on this film, he is an ***hole.

    8/10

    They quite often to that for an air of authenticity and then completely ignore them to the point that they ask not to be put on the credits.

    See: 300 for more details.

    On the back of the mentions for The Blair Witch ad campaign it's only on subsequent viewings I really appreciate how god the movie is. I was so hyped for this on its original release and remember going to some art house cinema in Cardiff to see it and being really underwhelmed and disappointed. When I watched it a couple of years later on DVD I totally loved it and must have seen it about 20 times subsequently and love it more and more each time.

    We don't talk about the sequels. :(

    The Heat 5/10

    Reasonably funny although most of the better jokes were in the trailer.

    @Dogmudgeon I saw it at midnight on halloween or something, never been so bored in a cinema in my life (well, other than spiderman 3 but i'm trying my hardest to forget about that).

    As an exercise in movie hype though it is unsurpassed.
