Two more reviews of Matrix fan edits: The Matrix Regenerated & The Matrix Squared. They are on the same page as my Hacked and Dezionized reviews: http://www.fosteronfilm.com/fanedits/matrixfe.htm.

The reviews were written with the assumption that you are familiar with the theatrical cuts, and that you've read the general discussion on Matrix edits at the top of the page.

ah, I was excited to read those. Thanks, FOF, again it is a very entertaining pleasure to read your comments and suggestions.
Just a few things:
REGENERATED is Chinese because it gave the editor the chance to let the actors say in the subtitles what he wanted them to say. Therefore he picked a "rare" language which sounded "cool" (I still consider it extremely funny to pick Chinese for a rare language). What the people say in Chinese differs a lot from what the y say in the subtitles.
I think you wrote a pretty great review for that, especially because it did not feel like you destroyed it with your critique, which can VERY easily happen with this fanedit. I remember that my words for another MATRIX fanedit (UNLEASHED) were a bit "rougher" than yours ;-) They would have also been if I had written a review for REGENERATED.

As for MATRIX SQUARED I guess you watched the old version and not the REVISED one, which is around for about two weeks now, but not yet on Rapidshare. Still I dug your review and it fits to what a lot of people think about this cool fanedit. if you had written, what Spence wrote on a MATRIX fansite when he was planning this, you would be more than impressed as to how much detail he gave to the planning of every scene.

That's what I thought at first, and expected all kinds of wild variations, but actually, I found the subtitles almost always matched the Chinese. My wife even had me go back so she could translate parts. There's one big change (it is actually only a few words, but they make a huge difference), in a conversation with The Oracle, but almost all the rest of the dialog is what we're used to.

Yeah, it's kinda tricky getting a look at the different fan edits, and Rapidshare doesn't work well for me.

Do you have a link to what was written on that Matrix fan site?
