    I wish them a successful and absorbing venture

    Anything, really, to keep them from making movies. They are a pair of middlebrow menaces.

    Anyone here remember the Enter the Matrix Game?

    I am a bit of a heretic - I quite like the Matrix films (although they are so cringeworthy in parts) - so much so that I bought the Enter the Matrix computer game.

    What a piece of rubbish - that could have been good. It had full "support" of the Weinsteins - special FMV's that tied in and plots by them, etc. The FMV's were bugged and had no sound for me (and a lot of other people) - major issues with collision detection, etc. Horrible driving sequences.

    Admittedly this was by Shiny via publisher Atari however the Weinsteins had executive control over this game. I don't know who looked at the bottom line and said "Ship It" - however it must have been agreed with the Weinsteins.

    It is the case that every movie tie in has to ship in time to tie in with the movie release. Every game slips a bit due to QA. Add those two together and you get half finished rubbish being released to cash in on the hype.
