The Matrix: A Different Perspective

“…it wasn’t so much a death, as it was a discovery.” The The Matrix trilogy, particularly its first movie, can be interpreted in so many ways. Now You See It offers that it can also be read as the expression of the Wachowskis’ desire to come out and be true to themselves.

If you ask us, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions were huge letdowns, whether or not we compare them to the first film. But Just Write argues that with adult eyes – and some perseverance – the movies are worth rewatching and dissecting.

According to a 2004 interview with Wired, Will Smith was offered the role of Neo in The Matrix, but turned down the part. Now, thanks to The Unusual Suspect, we know what that movie might have looked like. While we’d miss Keanu, we would have loved this too.

(PG-13: Language) “As you all know, the quietest way to kill a man is to just put your arms over his eyes.” Dunkey plays the 2005 game The Matrix: Path of Neo. It’s obviously broken or modded, but man those cutscenes should have been cut scenes.

The Matrix Trilogy in 90 Seconds

The Matrix Trilogy in 90 Seconds

There is no spoon. Burger Fiction cut out all the bits of The Matrix Trilogy that didn’t move the plot forward, summing up the entire story in just 90 seconds. We love how they gave less than 30 seconds to Reloaded and Revolutions, because that’s all they really deserve.

8-Bit Matrix Reloaded

8-Bit Matrix Reloaded

Editor Philip Raupach took footage The Matrix Reloaded, and replaced the sounds with the bleeps and blips of old video games, leveling up what was otherwise not the Wachowski’s finest moment. We were waiting for Blanka to appear.

Honest Trailers: The Matrix

Honest Trailers: The Matrix

The Matrix was arguably one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time. Here, Screen Junkies reminds us what we loved about the original, and why its two sequels were, uh, not quite as memorable. Neo, this is loco.

Matrix No. 5

Matrix No. 5

Everything is a Remix: The Matrix

Good artists copy, great artists steal. We learn that yet again in this examination of the Wachowski’s 1999 classic The Matrix, which clearly found plenty of inspiration in many earlier films.

Matrix Lobby A Capella

Matrix Lobby A Capella

The classic lobby gun fight sequence from The Matrix gets its sounds effects replaced by a single dude, making noises with his mouth. A little silly, but Matt Mulholland gets an ‘A’ for effort.

The Matrix may be passé, but that didn’t stop these guys from creating an episodic action and effects-laden fan-film. Great looks, cheesy dialogue – just like the original. First episode out 5/21.

Scott Pilgrim x The Matrix

Scott Pilgrim x The Matrix

If only Neo’s problem was as simple as defeating Trinity’s Seven Evil Exes, then maybe the trilogy wouldn’t have been so freaking vague and convoluted. Neo, this is loco!

Funny: The Matrix Pill

Funny: The Matrix Pill

Choosing between red and blue pills is not so much a philosophical quandary as it is a peristaltic one for Neo in The Matrix Pill; if he’s The One, it’ll be a bitter pill for humanity to swallow.
