    The Matrix Resurrections

    The irony of watching a film all about the dangerous temptations of nostalgia then losing my mind when that “Wake Up” cover came on.

    I thought this was a lot of fun and a neat way to continue the story, but I’m also the guy who came out of “Last Jedi” saying “Oh what a fine Star Wars story!”. Point is, I’m clearly out of touch with whatever the “fans” want out of these things, and judging by some of…

    I don't know anymore.

    Leave it to PTA to make me feel like an idiot.

    Still love you though.

    Yeah I'll be re-watching this.

    I was actually shocked by how good the animation was here - when it comes to character performance, environments, rendering, colors, etc, clearly some money went into this. Despite the subject matter, it feels like the animators did the best job they could to bring this world to life and showcase their talents...

    ...which makes it all the more tragic that those talents were devoted to a talking turd voiced by Patrick Stewart.

    Honestly, I can't even get mad about…
