    Not really. He just has a small amount -- all of his favourites. He's a graphic designer and musician, so most of his cash and time goes towards his talents rather than his hobbies. I'm quite envious of his self-control. :sorry::LOL:

    I know people don't believe me when i say this, but i think that Speed Racer is a masterpiece. Unfortunatly, Jupiter Ascending and the netflix show really disapointed me...

    Dude, you can get a Stan Lee autograph anywhere for a song!:rofl: You can't sell stuff with his autograph because he has signed so much sh*t that he totally devalued his own autograph!!:LOL:

    WAIT! Hold your f*cking horses! Did you just say they are making Matrix 4 and 5? I remember there were talks back in 2011 too (I think)...

    First of all, NO, F*uck that beyond the solar system. Please don't ruin my favorite trilogy :ohno:
    Secondly, OMG! That's f*cking awesome! More Matrix? If it's true then F*CK YEAH!!! Bring it on! :woot:
    Thirdly, I have no idea how to respond to this news. I'm all over the place :coffee:

    And yes, I actually dont want even the Wachowskis to touch it. I've seen all their movies after Matrix (except Cloud Atlas) and I was never impressed! (n)

    Haha I think I speak for most here when I say that I'm also envious.
    May be I should follow in his footsteps and only have my favorites? SO DAMN HARD THOUGH. It's like someone else takes control when I see a good slipcover/steelbook edition :LOL::cautious:

    May be I should give Speed Racer another watch? Only watched once and i cant even quite recall anything about the movie.

    I'll go if I find other people to go with. :thumbs: And I do, I'll keep an eye out...

    Actually, @AlienKing , it makes sense. The Wachowskis have had nothing but failure since the Matrix films.
    This may be their only way to get back in good stead within the industry. And maybe a Matrix film (or films) are the only thing they can get made now, since it is a "known" quantity.
    Also, I am not one of those people who thinks a sequel (or sequels) ruins what came before. If someone hated Matrix Reloaded or Revolutions - just ignore them! It doesn't change the first one! (I liked them. But Revolutions was the weakest for me). I am definitely curious (with excitement and reservations).

    I like your optimism :LOL::thumbs: Talking to me has its benefits you see :p

    Anywho, I also hope they can "redeem" themselves through this. I guess the worst that can happen is it turns out to be Jupiter Ascending 2 :rofl:
    Seriously, i got a little bit of Matrix vibe from that movie. I liked the world they built but the movie was a flop. If it was a bit more on the serious side, i might have enjoyed it more.

    I also dont think sequels necessarily ruins what came before. I just dont want them to touch the original trilogy; as in i dont want them to do a direct sequel.
    Still, I'm SUPER excited to see ANY new Matrix content. Good or Bad. :happy:

    And the collector in me is telling me to start a Savings account now to cover all the 1000th re-re-re-re-releases they'll be doing :rofl:

    Awww crap. You're right. They WILL rerelease the originals in new editions!
    But, ya'know what? There have not been any editions of The Trilogy that I would consider "Red Carpet".
    So, bring 'em on!:rofl:

    I liked Matrix 1 and 2 .. not 3 so much. 1 got better each watch and 2 I just was already bit by the bug and in the universe when seeing it and just loved him kicking ass.
