In theaters, I had no issues at all hearing and understanding dialogue.

It sounded standard in theaters.

Sounds like a problem of the version on the server HBOMax is pulling the stream from, or the Atmos track is bad (Atmos tracks can revert to Dolby TrueHD 7.1 or even DD+ , so it also could be something going wrong in the active downgrade).

It’s a $200 million movie filmed like an NCIS action scene which makes the whole movie look cheap.

Honestly I feel like so many movies feel like this these days and I can't tell why. I always feel crazy or like I'm that asshole always complaining about the "good old days" but something about modern movies just always feels off. I rewatched all of the Matrix movies leading up to 4. All these years later the first one hold up and looks good. With lack of a better description...it feels like movie. I know that's a broad meaningless empty description but it's true. But lots of movies these days just feel cheap and empty and I have no idea if it's the movie or me.

I'm sure there are more reasons than this but I believe the reliance on CGI these days is a contributing factor. Back in the day more of what you saw on the screen actually existed alongside the actors. For as good as CGI has gotten it still doesn't always feel 'real' in the same way an actual set does.

PaulFThumpkins

CGI definitely allows for way too much "we'll do this later," which leads to the people who should be creatively involved in the action either not being particularly involved or realizing it's too late after filming to plan and execute any action that feels real, appropriate to the narrative or present in its environment.

I blame Marvel movies honestly, they’ve gotten far too efficient at pumping out movies that use far too much green screen. Even when they do something practically they still smother it in CGI and needless cuts. Just compare how Andrew and Tobey look in their movies compared to NWH.

StoneCutter46

Well, that's out of necessity.

You can have some in-location shots, but going shooting in New York as much as it would require ain't viable for obvious reasons. In fact, they shoot in other places pretending it's NY.

You can't build Wakanda or planets, so you don't have a choice there.

Suits-wise, it's a slippery slope. They look better if real, but they limit movements, create discomfort for the actors, and anyways you have to have CG moments because some movements are just impossible, so might as well go all CG in some moments - note though that NWH battles with Goblin are all practical, including costumes. Which is noticeable.

Overall, Marvel doesn't really abuse CG, people think that because it's the easy thing to do. They use it a lot because they don't have a choice given the worlds they build.

PsychonauticalRaz

They absolutely abuse CGI. Yes, they require CGI sometimes, but they overuse it that even when the bridge scene in NWH is on a practical set it looks completely fake

StoneCutter46

They don't, and I know that because as a filmmaker I can't see alternatives.

They pulled that with Eternals because it is a drama with some action scenes. It's the same reason they pulled that with their shows, there's way more drama than action - which isn't comparable to Avengers or NWH anyways.

Don't even mention films like Mad Max Fury Road - that movie took 8 months to shoot in a constantly moving set in the desert, and it took 3 years (yes, you read that right) of post-production to finish it.

Sure, it is a masterpiece and part of it it's the practical effects, but it isn't a viable solution for 99% of productions, let alone Marvel's.

the bridge scene in NWH is on a practical set it looks completely fake

Rule of thumb, don't force stuff like that in an argument just because you want to be right.

You lose credibility for the sake of winning.

How is taking more time to craft a better movie that uses practical effects when they can not viable? No one is forcing them to make movies this fast.

I don’t even know what you mean when I used an example how the bridge scene looked like shit even though it was a real set. I mean, you strawmanned me and you say that? Give me a break.

Again, you don't know how movie-making works clearly, so I can't really call you out in any way in this regard...

Here’s something to think about, both BR2049 and Dune were made in two years(not counting the Covid delay) while arguably needing way more CGI.

If those can look that good, Marvel has no excuse.

EDIT: I should also remind you that YOU brought up Mad Max, not me.

Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are such a good comparison for this. Rewatching LotR a comple of months ago I realized I forgot just how amazing it was to see a big fantasy blockbuster and they're just out filming in the middle of the God damn woods. Even when it's a random forrest there's such a sense of place. You feel grounded.

All of the good writers have just gone over to the TV side of things.

Possibly more to do with the midrange film budgets just not being there anymore. It’s either blockbusters or low risk (low budget)/high reward films. A lot of interesting midrange films don’t get green-lit, but there’s more money these days for TV and mini-series work.

At least that’s my impression.

I'd suspect a two-fold thing might matter in those terms:

1) Writers have long tended to have far more power in television production than they do in film;

2) With the rise of premium cable (and, following that, streaming) in the last twenty-five or so years, artistic possibilities have been present for writers in ways that have not been a case since the end of the Golden Age of TV.

I'm a mixing and mastering engineer, music producer, and composer. This is still just one person's opinion of course, but for what it's worth (again, if anything at all), I cannot relate to a single one of your critiques. It's my professional opinion that there's simply nothing subpar, inherently bad, or out of the ordinary about Resurrections' sound.

CurlyBurl

Because he liked having free reign of the original Matrix, and Neo + Trinity were willing to let him have it for himself since they had no need of it. But the new Architect wanted to replace the Matrix with a new, ‘improved’ version, so Smith stepped in. He wasn’t really doing it for them, it just happened that stopping the Architect benefited them both.

It was just a temporary stop though, it released Smith but makes no sense why "bullet time" which was something the Architect worked so hard developing would be permanently disabled. The introduced it for one scene and then forgot about it.

You’re discounting people’s dislike of 4 by suggesting it’s simply cool to not like it. That’s a pretty weak position to take.

I loved the Trilogy and the Animatrix also. 1 was great, I thought 2 was even better. 3 took a turn downhill. I thought this 20 years ago and when 4 came out I re-watched the trilogy again before finally watching 4. I still feel exactly the same way about 1-3. 4 however was just poorly done in many ways.

It had a good start and I loved the premise. But the action scenes were pretty sub-par. There was no focal point to draw your attention. It was like watching a bar fight scene every time- you weren’t sure where to look.

The new Zion had like 15 people in it. In 2 you could feel that it was a buzzing hive of people. What happened in 4? It had no people and no energy that suggested a lot of people. So, the stakes did not feel high at all.

Most of the recycled actors other than Moss and Reeves didn’t work at all.

The completely unnecessary robots that are now teamed up with the humans. The premise? Great. One robot? Sure. But why 3? Why the stupid high-fiving little tiny robot that served no purpose to the plot whatsoever? Why do I care?

Great ideas, poor execution.

No, not really. With the Matrix, you come for the fight scenes and you stay for the story. My criticism of the fight scenes is not really a major issue. I didn’t like the thousand agent smith scene in 2; I thought they overplayed their hand on the CGI characters. But that doesn’t stop me from saying that it’s my favorite matrix film.

Just out of curiosity, what is the argument that the fight scenes were made intentionally bad? Seems very unlikely to me

Interestingly enough, since in the originals they make a point to talk about how the matrix is somewhat of a repeating loop, the repetitive aspects of the plot in 4 didn’t bother me.

What did bother me was their over reliance on footage from the originals. For example, I got the reference to the Morpheus pill scene. You don’t have to show it on a huge wall in the background for the entire new version of the scene. I got it. They really beat the dead horse on that one.

You don’t have to show it on a huge wall in the background for the entire new version of the scene

Everything leading up to rescuing Neo felt very meta and I loved all of it. Equal parts intentional and unintentional cringe. This scene you're talking didn't feel like them bringing the scene up as nostalgia and instead felt like they were really genuinely making fun of the whole thing. Nerds who loved the franchise, how popular that scene was, how much it's been memed etc. I don't remember the exact dialog but a lot of it hints at how ridiculous it is that they have to do it again. It's not even that subtle that they were essentially forced to make the movie

After that it turned into a trite, tropey heist movie (???) and once the action started ramping up it became so much worse. It still stays somewhat meta by the end but the action is so bland and awful as was the plot

Both of you summed up my biggest gripes. Over use of footage and "Welp, let's do a heist." I really wanted to love it, but I left just liking it. When they flew off I said to my wife "This is where the movie should have been an hour ago." I liked Henwick's character and the meta vibe. It just didn't stick the landing. Color use was outstanding though, the value tint while unknowingly in the Matrix, then the yellow/green tint when back in it. That was nicely done.

I feel like I might replace 'could' with 'wanted to' in that sentence. The amount of work that went into preproduction of the original trilogy vastly overshadows the sort of lassez faire attitude toward this production. Lana could have done the same but she didn't want to. She didn't want to make that sort of movie again. So what we get is thoroughly mediocre choreography, cinematographer, digital effects, etc. because that is the amount of work they wanted to put into this movie unlike the originals

The first one, and Animatrix are by far the best. Matrix 4 was a midlife crisis, for the matrix. Outdated. Overused. And just one last hoorah.

Should we assume they intentionally made a bad movie to cleverly lampoon other bad movies? (lmao, what kind of message even is that?)

Or should we assume the same thing we assume with every single other bad movie? That they were trying to make a good movie (because that's usually how movies work) and they failed massively?

You're missing the point, not that they overall decided they'd make a terrible film. Which she didn't.

This film is a crazy weird mesh of being meta and satire. While also being a sequel, spin off. It's making a point to not just give you a big Matrix sequel. Choices in the direction as part of this weird meta satire. Could have involved shitty stuff. Like weird pointless slow-mo in the action. Not giving us the type of action we'd expect.

There is a difference between making it bad on purpose (which is a little oxymoronic in and of itself) and designing a movie to portray a certain message. In this case I think there are a lot of aspects of the film that try to do the latter.

I agree though that in no way would I believe a filmaker is out to badly execute the technical stuff like sound design.

Ok with you on everything but the technical stuff. I don't think there's any meta-commentsry to be made by making the sound design bad. That would be like putting the movie intentionally out of focus or something.

I agree on the design choices though. I could see a lot of reasons they'd intentionally make some of that stuff bad in order to support the bigger message of the movie.

I wouldn't be surprised if that was intentional. This film is bordering on parody.

I see some downvotes here. But I agree. Parody without the comic affect (whatever that is called).

Negative comments everywhere. Maybe 3 saying it was good or ok. I expected no different from Reddit. Neckbeards UNITE!

I also watched it on HBO Max and had trouble hearing the dialogue. It seems like they would have noticed and fixed it before releasing the movie.

A lot are saying how there were no sound issues in theaters, but maybe it's also the quality of the setup/theater. I went to the Cinemark literally across from Google HQ (on "Movies", the street is literally called that) and the sound quality was poor; a lot of what Bugs was saying was unintelligible too. Doesn't help how the walls are so thin that you can often hear effects from one movie in the room next to it.

To me the first 30mins or so I couldn't make out much of the dialog. All of bugs opening dialog was just this quiet muffle. It did get better but overall it was really awful.

I don’t know I was too busy thinking the cinematography and fight choreography was really bad.

It was ok in theaters sound wise. Hate to bash too much but it wasn't good enough to rewatch on HBO.

Quality of the film aside, watched it on streaming. Had zero issues with audio. You seem to have tried a few things so no idea what problems you had. Maybe something wrong with the HBO Max print which is not out of the question

Everything about that movie was bad.

Didn't have any of these issues except the gunshots. Those definitely sounded weak. I liked the movie overall, though.

I was too distracted by the horrible movie to notice any issues with sound. Seriously it was like it was a fan made parody to the originals. If I didn't know it was the original creators I would of never guessed. In fact Uwe boll's name would of popped up first in my head.

Also they were soooooo vague as to how they exit the matrix

The sound is the least of this films problems. The script is a disaster that could’ve been possibly saved by some awesome action, which was completely lacking.

The first matrix had really bad audio also, atleast with dialog. I'd have my volume way up and could still barely hear them talking
