    It was great watching Bound again on the big screen during last year's Ebertfest with both Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly in attendance. Actually bumped into Gershon all by herself at the theater's concession stand while getting a popcorn-refill (she was grabbing something else), and we both shared some chuckles about the film.

    I own Jupiter Rising in 3D - I don’t know what Eddie Redmayne is doing but I can’t look away. He steals that movie.

    I keep forgetting that Bound was a Wachowski affair. Great film.

    I sort-of-liked The Matrix when it was new because of the action (and I was 13), but I seriously didn’t understand the point of it so much. The sequels perplexed me even more. Have no interest in re-watching them nor another sequel.

    Speed Racer was awesome though. I really need to watch that again soon.

    I watched Bound once, years ago, and the only thing I remember about the film is the camera shot of the telephone cord from the wall to the phone- the camera follows the cord through a twist in the cord. Funny shot!

    Other than the original Matrix, my favorite Wachowski film is V for Vendetta, followed by Bound and the Matrix sequels. I absolutely LOATHE Jupiter Rising, one of the worst big budget movies ever made IMO. Didn't much care for Cloud Atlas either. With their track record, I'm not expecting much from this new Matrix film.

    I think that might be the key to actually liking it. The first two sequels set such a low bar, and I'm so skeptical of another one, that they have a lot of latitude here to surprise me with something that is better than what I think it will be.
