Bugs: Recent Topics Paging, Uploading Images & Preview (11 Dec 2020)

Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.

× WELCOME TO TRASHDOME!

This is part of a series of bloody matches to the death. Show support for your favorite game so it will do better in the fight. You can support it by writing why you think its the better game and more importantly by betting (i.e. voting for) it. Please make it clear for when I check the bets later. You have until Friday when I tally the bets and declare the winner. I will reserve my bet for any tie-breakers.

Although you should be familiar with both games, there is no rule that says you have to have played both of them. The only rule in Trashdome is this;

Two games enter! One game leaves!

Shellhead wrote: John Myers, that was an awesome take down of both movies. It's interesting that most people who voted for The Matrix in this thread have little to say about either movie.


We Matrix fans are men of action not words.

It's not interesting at all. I just can't be bothered to write a screed when Barnes covered most of it.

The Matrix!

I wouldn't say that I was sheltered, but I didn't see a whole lot of R-rated films as a kid. I went to see this one when I was in 8th grade with my older brother and his girlfriend at the time. And I walked in with virtually no expectations and hadn't heard much about it aside from my brother wanting to go. I was blown away. The way some people talk about seeing Star Wars for the first time... that was how I felt after the Matrix. I had seen nothing like this. I still remember walking into school that Monday and finding the one other kid who had seen it, and we spent as much time as we could gushing about it. All the poor philosophy and stuff? Even that seemed pretty cool to 13-year-old me.

Terminator II was something that I'd see parts of on HBO and then change the channel when something bored me. I probably didn't see it all the way through until some time in high school when my friends went on a Schwarzenegger kick.

I like my explosions real, and my violence quick, punishing, and definitive. Matrix was none of that, and probably started everything I've come to hate in the modern action thriller. Still, it was the first, it was mighty impressive at the time, and these choices actually made sense in the house the Wachowski built. So Matrix

Besides, T2 was just the same CGI effect over and over again in a film that itself was repetitive of the first. Like an infinite loop of been there done that.

Winner!

14 - 9

I was wondering if we were going to see that older movies almost always trumped newer competition. I suppose not this time...
