The Matrix is one of those movies that’s tough to see with a fresh pair of eyes. Not only is it the kind of film that burns itself into your memory but the subsequent sequels were so messy that it’s easy to forget just how tight the storytelling in the first film is. One of the biggest reasons for this is its flawless…
Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick discuss Deadpool’s reaction to Cable. Zack Penn stresses plans for a new Matrix aren’t a reboot or a remake. Andrew Kreisberg promises next season’s Flash villain will be something different. Plus, a haunting new poster for The Dark Tower, and clips from Power Rangers and The Walking Dead…
A few months ago, I encountered a Facebook troll with a remarkable cover photo. It was a still from the movie The Matrix, the iconic moment when Neo stops a wall of bullets—but Keanu Reeves’ head had been photoshopped out and replaced with the head of Adolf Hitler.
To create those amazing bullet-time shots in The Matrix, the filmmakers used a bunch of cameras to simultaneously capture the action from all angles. But Google Engineer Ben Krasnow found an easier and cheaper way to do this by simply spinning a high-speed camera capable of shooting at speeds of up to 21,500 frames…
Quotes are the currency by which we pay respect to our favorite movies. If you can spout off a one-liner from a movie, odds are it has a special place in your heart, and that belief drives an awesome looking new art show in Los Angeles this weekend.
The Matrix Trilogy is driven by the mystery of whether Neo, the film’s protagonist, is actually the savior of mankind. But here’s a crazy theory: What if Neo’s arch nemesis, Agent Smith, was actually “The One” this entire time.
On December 20, 2003, a torrent file was created for an ASCII version of The Matrix. In January 2016, after countless other albums, movies and TV shows have come and gone, it’s still active.
Humanity’s future in space is very much in the planning stages. Will we float among the stars in crazy spaceships? Will we set up small camps that sprawl into townships that grow into cities, or is an orbital mothership more human friendly?
The Matrix was one of the best sci-fi action movies of all time and the rest of the trilogy had some of the most outrageously awesome action sequences ever, even if the movies themselves didn't reach the levels of the original. Basically, The Matrix trilogy is responsible for a lot of awesome moments in film history.…
I think this is my new favorite way to re-watch movies that I have seen a million times already: just follow the story through the close up shots. It works surprisingly well! As in the of The Matrix, you can see Neo's progression from outsider to The One and all the things that happened in between with just close up…
Before you start saying 'Wait, there was something good in Revolutions?', look! Giant, wonderful mech toys! Forget about literally everything else in the movie.
It's pretty clear those Wachowskis didn't have much of a storyline gameplan for Neo and company after the first Matrix film, but one good thing to come from those two forgettable sequels is threezero's wonderfully-detailed miniature version of the Armored Personnel Units—or APU for short—from The Matrix Revolutions.
CineFix sums up Keanu Reeves in The Matrix hilariously: he gets his ass kicked, learns to kick ass and then promptly kicks everyone's ass. The problem that you maybe didn't know? Keanu actually couldn't kick in the movie's epic fight scenes.
They're three of science fiction's biggest — and most dissected — franchises. But have we been looking at them all wrong? A series of new fan theories suggests that there have been some strange underlying stories hiding in plain sight the whole time.
Red pill or blue pill. This TL;DW 2.5 minute summary of The Matrix Trilogy hilariously compares those opposing views on how to interpret The Matrix and nails the important parts of The Matrix 2 and 3: the Oracle does things, the KFC guy shows up with TVs and there is a crazy DragonBall Z fight scene.
Being better than a Matrix sequel is not saying much, I know. But after recently re-watching the whole trilogy (and enjoying it!), it's still nuts how much better the first one was. The action sequences in the sequels may have been more insane but this 8-bit game version of The Matrix brings back more fond memories…
Classic movies have been remade with nothing but stock footage thanks to this video from stock footage company Dissolve. Each "movie" is introduced with a hint, but not the actual title for guessing purposes. I don't want to brag but *pulls imaginary suspenders* I got them all.
