I'm personally more of a computer geek, so that would explain most of it. I agree the LOTR: Return of the King was an awesome movie and will probably win best picture, but everything is so expected, how could anyone get all super freaked out about it? It's not new, the story has been told, and it’s your typical David vs. Goliath/love story/epic adventure. The litte guy overcomes extreme anguish and defeats the all powerful. There are no surprises nor twists. That is why I enjoyed The Matrix more; I didn't expect any of it. I honestly thought Neo would fail and Zion would fail has it had many times before. It was exciting to watch not knowing what was to happen or how it would happen. I also enjoyed The Matrix because of the symbiotic nature of the films. There was more to it than just extreme special effects and a techno lifestyle that all of the critics based their uninformed opinions on. Only the truly interested could appreciate those movies. Again, I loved the LOTR trilogy, but I liked The Matrix more.
