    According to the writer of the film ZaK Penn) the new Matrix film will not be a reboot or remake. In fact he said it would be wrong to even think about doing it. The new movie, if it happens, will be in the current Matrix Universe. (Which Revolutions left the door open to)

    Nerdist had some quote from a person at WB (proposed script writer?) that they were contemplating prequel stories, along the lines of how Morpheus came to be aware of the Matrix and later made captain of his ship, The Ebekenezer (sp?).

    Hell Or High Water:

    To save their family's ranch, two brothers decide to rob banks. A crusty TX Ranger pursues them.

    Excellent movie. The themes, the characters, all top notch. Highly recommend.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I miss being a kid and trying to stay up for the Saturday night monster movie of the week. I still remember Mole People or something like that which if I watched again is probably a terrible movie but scared the s**t out of me back then.

    The Apartment (1960)

    An underling lets his bosses use his apartment for their extra-marital affairs, so he can advance his career. Works well, until he gets involved with one of his boss' latest conquests.

    Great movie, although you can DEFINITELY tell what era this is from, not only from the settings/attitudes in the workplace, but just the style. Jack Lemmon, Fred MacMurray, and Shirley MacLaine star in this, and all are excellent in their roles. Definitely recommend.

    Outstanding cast. Comedies of that era fall flat for me (Some Like It Hot), but I'm on a mission to watch everything MacMurray ever did.

    Some Like It Hot is fantastic. The Apartment is top 5 romantic comedy of all time. Billy Wilder and Hitchcock are the greatest directors of that era.

    It's not a bad Disney comedy.

    However, most of us think of him as Dad in "My Three Sons"

    That's what threw me in The Apartment. He's such an a-hole in it.
