Movie Irreview: The Matrix

 

***

I don't know how long it's been since I've seen The Matrix, but it's been far, far too long.  I'm not really sure what I can say about this that hasn't been said already, so I'll just bullet point some thoughts.

  • This movie is way more about Jesus than I realized.
  • Carrie-Anne Moss' character arc could've used a little more work.  A bit too much prophesied puppy love, I think.
  • The machines are really, really fucking stupid if - knowing there's a growing human resistance movement populated by people unplugging from the matrix - they're just flushing their batteries down the toilet without making sure they're dead first.
  • After 21 years, it hasn't aged a bit.

 9/10.
