So, this upcoming weekend is Wizard World East in Philladelphia... and we're gonna be going. I guess I really don't see Wizard World as a real "con". It's a little too commercial for me to feel truly comfortable, but it should still be fun. So, as a bit of advanced warning, we might be a little late with the upcoming update.

And now on to the fun stuff. I wasn't able to really comment on "The Matrix: Reloaded" last week because of all the 1 year anniversery stuff, even though I was able to go see one of the 10PM showings on the Wednesday that it came out (if you're wondering what the line above is, it's the command that Trinity uses to hack into a computer in the new Matrix movie). Anyway, I personally loved the movie. I liked it better than the last one. There have been a number of mixed reviews for the movie, and I can understand where some of the criticisms come from, but IMHO, the movie as a whole is amazing. The movie itself is enjoyable on many different levels; the most obvious of which is the eye candy. However, there's much more to it than just the visuals. The Matrix movies contain a number of philosophical themes which weave in seamlessly with the plot. Besides being something which cause people to consider things they may not ever think about normally, it also adds some very potent fuel for speculation of what happens in the final movie. Although I have to reserve final judgment until I see the final movie, I think The Matrix might just replace Star Wars as my favorite epic Sci-Fi movie series.

Laura: May 12, 2003:

So, it's been like a month since I wrote anything. I am boring. I can't help it. And I just don't want to do anything. It might be because I cut my sugar intake by serious amounts. I used to eat chocolate and drink at least two sodas every day. Now, I've cut back to eating any kind of sweets and soda to one day a week. Waaaaa. Anyway, while normally I have very little I want to talk about, this time I actually have one thing that I want to go on about: videogames, my favorite thing in the world! (Sounds like a good place to break into song, yes?)

Mainly, I'm very excited about E3 which starts on Tuesday. I wish I could be a coffee server at a video game developer just so I could qualify to go as an industry professional. But alas, I can only read about it. There are a lot of great games slated for the latter half of the year (and it's been a great year already) but with E3 coming up, I'm especially excited about the games that we've heard little or nothing about. The titles I'm really looking forward to are Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Castlevania for the PS2, and Metal Gear 3. Admittedly however, there is one thing I'm hoping to see more than anything, though I think there's a slim chance that it'll actually happen. I'm hoping that SquareEnix will do a surprise revealing of Kingdom Hearts 2. Square has, in the past, slipped little hints into their presentations of things to come. Chances are it's still just too early, but video game developers do like their showmanship, so I guess we'll have to wait and see. But if and when they make a sequel, and it's something like what the secret ending was like in the first game, I'd be so happy that...well, I dunno. I'd have to do a happy little dance or something.
