Time After Time has moved up to the top of my queue instantly on the basis of this thumbnail alone.



H.G. Wells vs. Jack the Ripper.

Wells has built a time machine in his cellar, which the Ripper uses as a means of escape. Both men find themselves in 20th century San Francisco, and, after a period of adjustment, they make themselves at home. The plot takes a dark turn when the Ripper, disappointed that Wells' dreams of a Utopian future have not come to fruition, resumes his murderous activities.


I...
Can't wait.

Oh, agreed. DO NOT watch the trailer. It's laughably bad. It's a cool little flick for sure. David Warner is great in it.

EDIT: Seriously, the trailer sucks.

Out of curiosity I finally sat down and watched The Matrix: Reloaded and tomorrow will watch Revolutions. Until last night my entire understanding of the sequels was based upon xkcd:566: Matrix Revisited (below) which joked that the sequels were absolute ****e.



My girlfriend, however swore that the sequels outshine the first film in their deeper exploration of the mythos behind the saga. And you know what? She was RIGHT.

At the conclusion of Revolutions, I made the spontaneous decision to watch the PBS 6-part documentary series featuring Bill Moyers' interviews with Joseph Campbell titled, The Power of Myth for a greater understanding of the recurring monomyth depicted in The Matrix and in countless stories and films from the earliest days to the present.



If I enjoy the series as much as I anticipate, I'll likely order a copy of Campbell's seminal work, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, which I suspect is a standard text for all media and film studies students.

I'm looking forward to it!

I think I was 10 when I saw the second Matrix movie and I hated it because I was so confused. Maybe I should return to it, especially considering if I had seen a film like Prometheus at that age I would have the same feelings.

I agree that The Matrix: Reloaded and Revolutions get an unnecessary amount of flak. I do like the first one the most, but I don't hate the sequels.

The only redeeming quality of the 2nd Matrix movie was Monica Bellucci.
