The Matrix in 3D, Betelgeuse and Living the Tatooine Dream

If ever there was a trilogy that should have been in 3D, it’s the Matrix…Well maybe Star Wars as well, but it appears we may, at some point, see a little piece of Star Wars ”live”.

Firstly, our most excellent friend, Keanu Reeves has ‘Revealed’ that the Wackowsky?Werkowski?…Okay I know how to spell it, it’s Wokauwski? Woah! Cows Ski? (That’s the Keanu version). Sorry, the Wachowski brothers have said that they’re in treatment phase of Matrix 4 and 5.

It seems a lot of people were disappointed with 2 and 3, but I wasn’t, I loved those films, though the first is clearly the best, they’re collectively one of the most important collections in my DVD, errrr…collection.

I always thought that we were going to see more from the Matrix world, especially the way it was left. I mean everyone must have seen the Jesus comparisons on the films right? Neo is the unlikely saviour, okay he’s not a carpenter, but aren’t programmers the guys who REALLY build things now? By the third film, he has a full following and finally gives his own life to save everyone. All obvious, right? However, it’s also obvious that there’s one final chapter missing from the Nazareth story and that’s the resurrection. As soon as the third film was finished, I was thinking “The Matrix: Resurrection”, would be on the way and hopefully now, it is. Personally, I can’t wait.

So…More Matrix films and now more Betelgeuse? Okay, not quite the same as the Michael Keaton film, but it’s causing more of a stir than an anticipated comedy sequel. Apparently the star is going to go supernova and when it does, we’ll potentially have, what looks like 2 suns in the sky, just like Tatooine, in Star Wars!! Cool, right? Okay, it might not be cool. Maybe it’ll affect our gravitational pull, maybe we’ll all be sucked into a black hole, maybe…Well, you get the picture, right? It may happen in 2012, so the Armageddonists are probably loving it, right now.

So will we be seeing two suns, like the image above? I would’ve thought it was unlikely. Betelgeuse is about 640 light years away, so unless this event happend 639 years ago, we’re not likely to see it in the sky, right? Surely it means that if it happens next year, we’ll see it in 2652, right? Come on @ProfBrianCox and @Prof_S_Hawking , sort it out! Dammit! Sorry people, your Tatooine dreams will have to wait a while longer. I mean, we’ve all Star Wars dreams, right? Even I have. Mine had @ItsJessicaBiel @Nikki_Griffin @BambolaBambina and @AdrianneCurry in it. No! It wasn’t THAT type of dream. Nikki and Jessica as X-Wing Pilots, Adrianne in her Leia bikini and Allessandra as Boba Fett (Sorry @Daniel_Logan ). Again, not THAT type of dream – Jabba ruined the mood. I guess we can all dream, though…right?
