THE MATRIX RELOADED - THOUGHT PROVOKING FUN...

No matter how you slice it, any product that can generate $100 million dollars in 4 days of business must have something appealing to the American consumer. So in case you have not seen it, we will offer you our top-three reasons to see THE MATRIX RELOADED.

NUMBER 1 - THE WHOLE FIGHT GAME and MACHINE vs. HUMAN

The running, jumping, fighting, flying, platinum dreds with switchblades, Cadillac Grills and amazing fight choreography will leave you simply amazed. While the first installment contained more tense dramatic moments, RELOADED is aimed more at solving the issues at hand, so there is really no time for dramatic build-up. Also, the simple thought that what if your PC or MAC suddenly decided to wake up and kick your a*s one day? Well, that probably won't happen, but how many times has a device let you down when you absolutely, positively needed it? Hmmmmm.

NUMBER 2 - WARNER BROS. and VILLAGE ROAD SHOW'S Commitment to Diversity

The film represents a beautiful cross-section of diversity. Unlike former box-office behemoths, like THE TITANIC and X-2, THE MATRIX franchise has provided wonderful leading roles for many minorities and it should be recognized. It also proves that any executive that says minorities can't open a film is a liar. Certainly, without the truly gifted Laurence Fishburne, would the series had ever taken off? We salute WB and Village Road Show for their efforts.

NUMBER 3

The Lakers lost and so did Allen Iverson. So get outta the house and check it out. THE MATRIX RELOADED is far more interesting than BIG FUNDAMENTALS.

HBO'S CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ON THE RECORD WITH BOB COSTAS CONTINUES IT'S THIRD SEASON WITH SPECIAL GUEST JERRY SEINFELD

Comic Jerry Seinfeld heads the guest list on HBO's talk show ON THE RECORD WITH BOB COSTAS. If you missed the show on Friday, May 16th, catch the show TONIGHT, May 19, (7:00 p.m.) or WEDNESDAY, May 21 (10:30 p.m.). All times are EST.

Seinfeld's segment occupies about half of the 45-minute program, as the star of one of the most successful sitcoms in history appears for an engaging, in-depth interview. The show also includes a panel on the state of reality TV with guests Larry Wilmore and Mike Fleiss. Wilmore is a veteran producer of scripted network series, including "The Bernie Mac Show," while Fleiss is the executive producer behind the reality shows "Are You Hot?," "The Bachelor" and "Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?"

We know there are many "Seinfeld" fans out there. So tune in and see what's poppin with Jerry...Hey, remember that episode when Jerry couldn't remember his new honey's name other than it rhymed with a part of the female anatomy? Or how about when Jerry got Babou deported? And who could possibly forget the simple yet utterly funny statement, "Newman!"

On COSTAS, Jerry delivers some of his classic make you think jokes...

Seinfeld: "I was on in Las Vegas and it was the Kentucky Derby, and somebody yelled out,
'Do the horse thing.' "I have this whole thing about do the horses know that they're
racing? What do they think is going on? They must get to the end and go, 'We were just here, what's the point of that?' The horse says, 'If we had just stayed here, we would have been first.'"
