Reloaded is good too but that first one is so great. A
masterclass in exposition married with fantastic action.

Considered/offered Neo: will smith, Brad Pitt, Val kilmer,
Ewan MacGregor, David duchovney, Tom cruise, leo DiCaprio,
Nicolas cage

Keanu was the right choice.

Morpheus is dope, hangs out with dr dre on a ship called the
Nigga Kanigga, only pulling white people out of the matrix
so they can be his reparation slaves.

i like it when neo enters the room to meet morpheus and
morpheus turns around with his dick out and says "at last."

I was living in London at the time and I remember the hype
for it was huge. There was a real buzz of excitement. It’s
a great movie. Shame about the sequels.

My favorite part was when the white guy said "I can
smell your stink" to the black guy, and the
black guy started crying.

awful cash in buggy as hell, I reckon they could make a
properly good matrix game now

fight much at all

true facqt: due to contractual obligations with the guy that
wrote the book that it was based on, the producers of Die
Hard were contractually obligated to offer the lead role to
Frank Sinatra. then in his 70s, he declined

It's pretty epic that The Matrix was released on
International Transgender Day of Visibility. There's a lot
of great queer and feminist analysis of the film out there.
I haven't been able to watch it since it was hijacked by
alt-right and MRA manbabies, though

you mean a lot of cod philosophy, and the fact is not as
good as the sum of its influences, yeah I think its alright,
I think its one of those films that is quite spectacular on
first viewing but doesn't hold up that well for repeated
viewings

I dunno haven't seen it in a while I might reassess it, the
sequels were deffo a bit gash, first one was a lot better

I liked the first one a lot when I first saw it, it's a good
yarn and brilliantly produced. Some of the sci fi ideas are
a bit dodgy but whatever, not everything has to be hard SF.

completely get why belb says "portentous po-faced plop". The
worst scene for that is the drivel-speech by the architect,
I think in the second one. Holy shit was that bad. My jaw
was hanging open. How did anyone greenlight that dialogue.

guys are we ziltypilled

could be cos i didn't see it at the cinema, it wasn't very
immersive on an old portable with ad breaks. and
cod-philosophy is right. it spawned a load of sixth formers
at our school going round in leather trenchcoats, i just
found the whole thing ridiculous

Yeah it is very first year philosophy but that's part of the
first ones charm as it's an action movie most of all with
cod philosophy to justify it. it's the second and third
where the wachowskis started sniffing their own farts
(architect, ghosts and vampire etc) where it goes off the
rails.

First one has lots of shorter exposition scenes that work
really well as they're always punctuated with examples,
second and third are paragraph after paragraph of 'i am so
smart'.

yeah sniffing their own farts, I think their limitations
were really exposed with the sequels, if they had to
construct nuance to a grand narrative they just couldn't do
it, it was a muddled mess, Im usually good at following plot
threads but I was confused. there was just a lot of mumbly
dialogue that didn't really say much of anything, there was
one scene that was quite well done, the one with the
architect guy, that was memorable perhaps cos it

LAZY_TITLE This guy was like a character from Allo Allo
He make Keanu Reeves look like a subtle actor lol

Just watching it now, yeah Dialogue Is really overwrought, I
like the video screens in the background, the bad guy is
very reminiscent of peter cushing as moff tarkin

Total Film magazine says this film contains "the worst line
ever delivered in a mainstream Hollywood film." The line of
dialogue is: "Your life is the sum of a remainder of an
unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of The
Matrix.
