    It's an interesting discussion. If I think I'm a fucking tea kettle then I don't think anyone would have a problem describing me as mentally ill, but if I think I'm a woman then it becomes touchy.

    I think they just got lucky with the Matrix. I thought Cloud Atlas was good enough, but I felt that they lost themselves too much on "style" points and dramatic flourish rather than making sure the story was actually interesting. I feel similarly about Sense8, it's good enough, but it's missing something story-wise. If only they could have the style points - but then also have a well-written, gripping, human story that makes you feel emotionally involved to glue it together.

    I think of them as having great ideas but very poor execution. Sometimes you don't need it much for a movie like Matrix. They do have a great eye for visual flares but needs someone to proofread their dialogue for scripts

    In bed with your bitch, watching game of thrones,
    The screenplay is verrry not good.

    Joel Silver made that movie

    That's already happening with Glass (the new Unbreakable sequel).

    Considering they haven't made a good movie since 1999, I'm gonna go ahead and say 'Yes'.

    Didn't know the Wachowskis made that one.

    Haven't seen it yet, but it's on my list.

    the fact that you care so much says more about you than it does about them.

    I didn't know that was official, the teaser at the end of his last movie made it seem inevitable, though.

    It was a weird co-directing thing. The Wachowskis directed half the movie and Tom Tykwer directed the other half.

    You should check it out.

    Yeah I will get around to it. I was waiting to watch it with a friend who also wanted to see it, then I forgot about it.

    I liked their movies better when they were mixed up and confused. Their new awakenings has really affected their bodies of work.
