    I plan on watching them all back to back this week. As it stands, Reloaded is my favorite of the bunch.

    Can't wait to see what the box set will have to offer.

    Me and a friend were also talking about a what if?

    The Jedis wouldn't stand a chance against Neo.

    In the Matrix, perhaps. But in the real world, the Jedi would whoop Neo's ass. [​IMG]

    unfortunately, in the real world, the jedis in lucas' most recent efforts are irredeemable pansies. so, no, they wouldn't be able to hold a candle to neo.

    oops.....was that out loud?

    You couldn't be more wrong. The Jedi in the PT films are in their fighting prime (at least until they're exterminated in Ep. 3). So they'll still mop the floor with Neo in the real world. [​IMG]

    actually, that's sort of my point: if the jedi's in episodes I and II are in their fighting prime, and that's the way they fight, then i'm afraid they're done-for.

    Agreed. Though the Jedi as depicted in the Clone Wars micro-series could give Neo a run for his money [​IMG]

    The real world Neo is no match for the Jedis, but the Matrix Neo could kick all their asses and become the emperor himself. [​IMG]

    But what if the Jedi within the Matrix knew of the Matrix and knew of mind over matter just like Neo? Because if in the real world a Jedi has that much power by focusing his inner energy and mind, imagine what he could do in an artififial world not bound by certain rules and constraints. Yes this is pointless fanboy bickering, but it is still fun.

    And it depends on what Jedi is going against Neo. Because Jedi have a sixth sense most of the time to know what someone is going to do before they do it, they could hold their own against Neo, and if that Jedi were someone psycho, like oooooooooohhhhhh......Vader, then the second Neo thought about doing anything Vader would already have the force choke applied from long distance, ending the fight quickly.

    It makes about as much sense as the scene in Stand By Me, where one of the boys says Superman would beat Mighty Mouse, because he's "real". It's all silly.

    Darth Vader from ESB would kick Neo's pansy ass.

    So would Maul and Dooku(the most impressive swordsman we've seen in SW so far)IMHO

    Well, Neo doesn't have a lightsaber! And the Jedi can perform a Jedi mind trick.

    (Waves hand)
    "You're a six year old school girl."

    "Whoa."

    Trust me. Neo isn't the brainy type. He wouldn't be able to resist.

    Of course Neo could just look up slowly, hold out his hand and say "No" and **poof**, off turn those lightsabers. [​IMG]

    Hmmm.

    The bigger question would be Gandalf vs Count Dooku or Yoda
