Can't watch The Matrix without laughing anymore.... sigh

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
When I first saw this when it came out in theaters I thought it was awesome. I was amazed and thought it was the coolest thing ever. (It's playing right now on TNT.)

And then I saw The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

And now, every time see Hugo Weaving I see him in metalic dresses with glitter eyeshadow up to the middle of his forehead. Oh Fel-i-ci-a!!! Yeah, it ruined Lord of the Rings, too. I was laughing so hard in the theater my best friends were throwing popcorn at me.


Has anyone else had this problem????

Not with Hugo, but I often get a Priscilla flashback whenever I see Terence Stamp, don't know why One film this did NOT happen with was The Limey, again - don't know why.

I love Priscilla!!!!!! When I saw the Matrix, I instantly remembered Agent Smith, er Mitzi del Bra

But all in all, he does play his parts very well, and so does Terence Stamp - gotta give them credit!

I get that whenever I see Tim Curry in anything. There's always that brief image of him in his teddy and high heels singing "In just seven days...maybe six...I can make you a man. Really killed Hunt for Red October for me.

I love Tim Curry.
I am a die hard Rocky Horror Fan - have all the dolls to prove it.

I'm a Rocky fan, too. I think that movie is a ton of fun to go see, especially when you're with an audience that likes to participate. I think I can still remember how to do the Time Warp, but it's been awhile.
I like Tim Curry, too. He's a good and believable actor, I think.

I come at it from the other side. Every time I see Hugo in a movie I start intoning "Mr. Anderson" after each of his lines. ;-)

Drives my wife crazy! We bought the Lord Of The Rings, and when Elrond first appears she paused it and told me to "get it all out of my system" before she continued.

Every time I watch the Fellowship of the Ring, when Elrond says "Welcome to Rivendell, Frodo" I always say "Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson" out loud, even if I'm watching it by myself. Makes me laugh everytime! lol The first time my friend and I saw it in the theatre we looked at each other and said it!

You know, the bad thing is, I saw Priscilla before Matrix, and I kept waiting for Smith to morph into a drag queen.
(Then in the Ring Trilogy, I kept waiting for Elrond to say "Misssssssterrr Bagginnnnssss....")

If you want to see a first-rate, creepy Terence Stamp film, check this out. The book by John Fowles was great too.

What I find really amusing is that in all of the Guy Pierce films I've seen after Pricilla, I never imagine him in drag. (Probably because he just comes off as always being effeminate. So does Nathan Lane in The Bird Cage .)

I still have problems believing it was John Leguizamo in To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar . I think it was because he actually looked like a woman. Chi-Chi La Rue. I had no idea what I was watching the first time I saw this movie, and it took over a half an hour to realize that was actually a man!

Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes.... I've permantly erased those images from my head. Too scary!

(If you can't tell, I love drag queen movies. I wish I was a man just so I could be a drag queen!)

Ha - that's funny. I always thought everyone was SO perfectly cast in the Lord of the Rings - EXCEPT Hugo Weaving as Elrond. I kept seeing him as he is in The Matrix! Somehow he was just too familiar and not quite, er, noble or dark or something enough to be Elrond.

Yeah, I get the giggles about her, too, and for much the same reason.

Thanks! I'll look for it.


One evening, my husband and I were at the movies when several Spanish-speaking ladies sat behind us. As the film started, they chattered away with several interjections of one actress' name. So it went "...chatter chatter An-die Mc-Dowell! chatter chatter An-die Mc-Dowell! chatter chatter" Now whenever we see her we exclaim "An-die Mc-Dowell!"

I don't have this problem with Hugo Weaving, but whenever I see Bruce Campbell in anything I expect him to say "Groovy".
