Any others??

There are heaps, but Airplane! is known as Flying High in Australia, I think because the Aussie ausience at the time wasn't too familiar with the term airplane.

I may be mistaken but I think The Edge with Hopkins and Baldwin was once known as Bookworm.

why was it being called Burly man? so people wouldn't recognize it as a matrix set or somethin?

I'm not sure, off the top of my head why they called it that, although I believe one of the fight sequences was also called "The Burly man fight"

I've attached some images that were taken on the set of Reloaded / Revolutions, they're from TheLastFreeCity.com (previously TheMatrixOnline.com) which is a Matrix fansite that I moderate.
