Finally saw The Matrix Reloaded tonight. No spoilers from me, but I think they did a good job of creating/fleshing out a surrounding world they'd only sketched in the first movie. I was cracking up to see my adviser from grad school, Cornel West, on the Zion council. Of course, if you know me, you're prolly cracking up to learn he was my adviser. Then again, you'll be cracking up more after you get a load of this.
