Heard a lot of people recommend this movie. I started watching it thinking it would be a romance-comedy cliche. But I assure you, while romance is a big part of the movie, it certainly isn't so cliche.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this flick from the first minute until the credits roll. Its so good, it immerses you into this wonderful journey of Joel's mind and at the end of it leaving you feeling warm and happy with a touch of sadness. It is what everyone wishes could happen to them. It is what happens in every relationship and life in general.
The deeper I was into the movie, the more I actually felt like the character, Or that I was on drugs. I've never taken drugs before so I wouldn't know exactly what it feels like. But I imagine if I did, it would feel like this movie.
Its long. To quote Alex, "It really seems like eternity" After about 2 hours into it, I find myself asking "When is this going to end!"
There are a few times I thought…
After more than 10 years, this movie still blows my mind. This has to be one of my all time favourite. When it was first released, The Matrix had the most amazing action scenes introduced to Hollywood during that time, borrowing from Bruce Lee movies and chinese kung-fu movies.
Not only that, it has such detailed and deep script writing, Morpheus's Yoda-esque dialog, great cast of characters, most original and unique world and it makes you think if The Matrix could be true.
