The Matrix (1999)
Throughout human history, we have been dependent on machines to survive. Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.
So basically: Thomas Anderson is a computer hacker by the name of Neo. He questions his reality and what The Matrix is, which leads the authorities after him. He is contacted by legendary hacker Morpheus who tries to explain what The Matrix is, giving Neo a choice of the blue pill, to go back to ignorance, or the red pill. Neo chooses the red pill and is taken into the real world, a world overrun by machines, using humans as an energy source. Morpheus believes Neo to be The One, the one with the capabilities to overpower the computers and free humanity.
I forgot how epic this film was! Before I had seen this film, and after everyone else had, I got into my head that it was a bad movie. Not, like, a terrible flop-type movie, but that kind of film where everyone makes fun of, y’know? Quentin Tarantino was like that as well. (I think my mother is a bad influence when it comes to movies.) Yeah, so is there anyone who hasn’t seen this film? Because it is epic. And amazing. And I can’t get mad at the floating people like I do regular martial arts movies – that ALWAYS bugs me – because they came up with a valid reason, yey!
I wouldn’t go see the sequels – this is from word of mouth, ‘cause I refuse to see them – but this one defs deserves to be on the list. And look, it’s Morpheus all grown up!
Ziggi seal of approval!
