It wasn't just the faces in the burly brawl scene, the texture of their clothing was too flat and fake looking to me. It was only for a few brief moments but those moments are BAD. The other worst part is when Neo is flying and the camera pans around to him up above the clouds. Looks waaaaay too fake.

The freeway scene though? Flawless. You can definitely tell where the money went.

I must admit I don't remember the third movie as well because I've only seen it once, but I don't recall being annoyed by the CGI even once. Though I still think the movie was much weaker than the first too (but I still liked it).

ROTK should win special effects and art direction too if they have an award for it

Matrix 3 was totally uneventful for me. Nothing striking. And yeah, at lot of it was too fake looking.
Not saying T3 was good. I'd have to see POTC again, Depp's handsomeness is far too distracting to notice any special effects

ROTK should win Best Picture, in my opinion. I'm not arguing who should win anything, I am just saying that it is a shame to see that the Matrix films are not up for the award. I know they wouldn't win, but you know what they say. It is an honor just to be nominated.

ok. that's true. I think they put an effort into it that should be recognized. I just think maybe it was too stylized to come off right. It was like half way between trying to be realism and trying to be whateverstyle to work right in the third film


edit:
rog just told me the 2nd matrix didnt get any nominations either. I think they should at least have gotten nominated for the 2nd matrix, and at the very least for best action sequence.

The second matrix was astounding. The visuals were just brilliant and plot just dug and dug (maybe too deep). But the third matrix was...more epic in a sense. It wasn't what people were looking for. It was great, but not the same feel that the other two were. But still good none the less. Hollywood is just pissed at the brothers because they were normal guys before the first movie and then they turned into super stars when the second came out. Hollywood hates them because they're aren't good looking, athletic, or anything that makes a good star. Hollywood is pretty much like the big bully and the watchowskie (sp) brothers and their movies are like the nerds playing gameboy on the playground. They're just different and it scares them, and the thing that scares hollywood is, the intellegence of the movies. Not just the dribble that most action movies are.

i agree with the highway scene which had made sitting through the whole (shitty) movie worthwhile. that scene alone should've been nominated, i think. however, i was disappointed with the way that scene ended when neo saved morpheus and the keymaster. stupid.

johnny depp is an awesome actor.

Dude, I can name a LOT of very well regarded directors who are not athletic or good looking at all. Nobody gives a shit about what the director looks like. If you're behind the camera, it doesn't matter.

True. No directors look good . Lucas, Spielberg. But I still stand with everything else I said. But I still think HollyWood is too full of itself to like the geeked up movies. Aside from LOTR because they're just too good not to like.

As for the freeway chase, that's easily one of the best action sequences ever filmed. Everything about it is just badass.
i loved the whole thing but hated how they ended with neo flying in like super man.

i enjoyed T3 and pirates of the carribean :/
