    [Watched with commentary tracks featuring philosophers and film critics: TLDR philosophers are cool and the film critics were archetypically blasé and hyper-critical but actually pretty insightful.]

    Ever since I heard that the Wachowskis were releasing a collection of the Matrix movies opting instead of their own commentary to have film critics and academics dissect instead I knew I had to listen. Especially for Dr. Cornel West, who I went to see speak at a local university years ago and I…

    Oh the nostalgia. I remember watching this so long ago (not in the theaters). I wish I could have seen it in the theatres because I probably wouldn’t have been so nitpicky. It’s such a cool concept but at times it’s just too much. The action is top notch, but sometimes the dialogue fell flat. I read that something like half of Neo’s lines are questions, so that means there is a ton of exposition. It was also kind of…

    This movie is amazing it created a thing that every movie tres to copy and always fails terrebly at it. I admit i am not huge fan of action films but this movie was so good the action was best action i ever seen. Story back it up the story was surprisingly really really good this movie streamed for big and was very ambitious and it abiton succeeded. Keanu Reeves was great it this movie everyone was great it this film. This movie was so original and it makes me happy. DIRECTING WAS AMAZING ACTION SCENES Where directed beautifly. So I will give The Matrix
    ,,A+,,

    Definitely one of the greatest films of our time. It contained riveting action sequences, moments of great suspense, and interesting but organic twists and turns throughout. I appreciated how the film took its time on delivering answers to the questions, and how you're forced to struggle with that debate of whether Neo is or is not "the one."

    My favourite part of the film stems from the conflict with Cypher betraying the team. The suspense of him being the only…

    "Unfortunately, no one can be told what The Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself."

    I think it's easy to take The Matrix for granted nowadays. It has become such an iconic part of the public pop-culture awareness that it's almost a parody of itself at this point. Following it's monumental success in 1999 it certainly spawned a ton of lesser imitators and a couple of not so satisfying sequels. One might be tempted to make the horrible…

    Whoa, Fantastico! The best action film since sliced bread-and sliced bread makes a helluva a good action movie.

    It still tells a good story when it settles down to one of its famous belting action scenes. Just don't let the cast talk for too long.

    When a plot as good as The Matrix gets run over with needless action we ask ourselves the uncoumfortable question as to who is actually making the movie. The directors or the studio?

    I watched this film a lot when I was a kid, but I hadn't seen it in full for a long time, so I decided it was time to pick it up and give it a rewatch. Aside from some of the obvious age on it (wonky CGI, the leather clothing, etc.). it still is a damn good movie.

    This was obviously a milestone movie when it was released. It mixed Hong Kong style action with interesting philosophical themes. Obviously…
