Since a bunch of the usual crowd was out in San Francisco this week, we decided to see if bigger was actually better for The Matrix Reloaded.
The short (albeit useless) answer is "yes and no."
The IMAX treatment certainly was a far cry from the local theater in which we originally saw the film. However, the large format and pulsing sound did not make the actual film any better.
The experience was much improved, because you could see all of the work that the reported $127M paid for, but in the end, the film still left me feeling flat.
