X2 or MATRIX RELOADED: which are you more excited about?

Hopefully this isn't too pointless or time-wasting, just wanted to know which is the more aniticipated movie among DVDTalkers.

I'm more excited about X2, my brother, Matrix. I'm curious to see which will do better box office. I hope X2. But probably not.

Matrix, by far (and I am definitely looking forward to X2).

I'll have to say Matrix, but X2 is definitely second on the list, followed by Hulk. Dang I'm a geek!

Voted for the Matrix sequel.

Though I enjoyed the original X-Men and am pumped for X2 as well.

Matrix for me mostly because Matrix's trailer pumped me up more than X2's did.

Ok why isn't both an option! I am in a horrible film theory class this semester that is sucking the love of film right out of me. I'm really hoping these two films will renew my movie addition. Guess I'll have to go with X2 since it's coming out first.

I'm looking forward to X2, since I didn't really care for the first Matrix movie.

I do loathe the new X2 poster though:



Patrick Stewart's Professor X got bumped from the poster for bit player Iceman and I guess Halle's the star now.

Yikes..that poster is horrendous. I'm glad Halle won't be in the next movie, b/c she plays Storm horribly IMHO.

I put X2 b/c the trailer has really gotten me excited - moreso than the Matrix one. The Matrix trailer was just a massive CGI fest, which I'm starting to get tired of.

Neither 'excites' me, but I will see X2 but probably not Matrix.

The first X-Men movie looked great, but was kind of lacking in many areas. The Matrix was just an amazing movie--it was what the Star Wars prequels have aspired to be. I am looking forward to The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions with great anticipation.

Matrix, hands down.

I liked the first X-men and I'm excited for X2 but nearly as much.

The Matrix is one of my all-time favorites, whereas X-men is just my favorite comic book movie.

I think The Matrix for me, just because it's been a longer wait.

I'll be in line for both opening day.

Of the two choices, I'll pick Matrix Reloaded.

But the movie I'm most looking forward to seeing in the next little while is A Mighty Wind.

I'm really pumped for both. None of the 2 have the edge over the other for me personally.
