I got to the theatre this afternoon and watched a matinee of the Matrix Revolutions. I always try to go midweek during the day to movies I am really looking forward to, and much to my delight, there were only four other people there. That means the Surround Sound Speaker to ear ratio was about 82 to 1, and it was awesome.
I thought the movie was fantastic, and I think movie critics are now officially morons. Of course, I did not go to the Matrix seeking deep philosophical fulfillment- I went for a couple hours of excitement, action, a decent story line, and lots of hot screaming special effects with an equal amount of complimentary ear-bleeding loud sound effects.
The Matrix delivered.

Unbelievable- Egypt has banned the Matrix movies because they promote Zionism.
