This is exactly what I'm talking about. People decided for themselves what the Matrix movies were about, and then complained when the Wachowskis told them that it wasn't about that.
I'm not assuming anything - I'm going off the information that was actually presented to me in the first film. Such as a lengthy sequence of how much effort it took just to get Neo out of bed for the first time, and dialog such as:
"Why do my eyes hurt?"
"You've never used them."
and then watching real-world Neo lean tiredly against walls for most of the rest of the film, etc.
So I'm not assuming it, it was actually part of the movie they made.
But the fact of the matter remains that the Wachowskis never contradicted their film, only your assumptions about what that film meant.
While that's not the case - see above - the Wachowskis do get to make whatever movie they want. And I'm allowed to like it, or not. I thought their sequels were flawed and just explained why. But neither the Wachowskis nor I will be losing sleep over it.
And you're absolutely right, that was an awesome scene in the first movie, but it would have been horrible if that was the draw of the next FOUR HOURS. You can't make a trilogy with that as your only drama.
I wasn't suggesting that Super Neo/Weak Neo should have been the only plot of the sequels, I was suggesting that as a B plot it would have been more interesting dramatically than the Super Neo/Super Neo B plot they went with.
And again, it's only my opinion, and the sun will still come up tomorrow.
