Here we go, and I am really excited, I know a lot about this movie, because this was the one, folks. This was the movie I was not allowed to see as a kid and always wanted to. There was a convenience store where you could rent movies, and it had posters up for some movies. For years and years, the poster that was always up right near the door was The Matrix. It looked serious and dark and awesome and of course Nan would always say "we're not renting that, it's too violent."
Well fine, Nan, I won't rent it. I will, however, accidentally push the Play button. :D
So before I do that, let's run down what I know about The Matrix, which is actually quite a lot.
• There's a team called The Matrix. They wear long black coats, black everything really, and really sharp shades.
• The Matrix works for the government, they deal with conspiracies and things that people would rather forget about.
• Their enemies are an alien force disguised as humans that wants to control the planet.
• They fight with big guns and martial arts
• It's a special effects movie with lots of explosions and violence
• The aliens have this poisonous silver blood that can get on you and infect you like a virus
• It's a very bleak and rainy world, going by the poster.
So without further delay I shall now proceed to defy my grandmother. I'm okay with this. Heeeeere we go!

Totally sold on Morfius so far.
Annnnd I'm lost. It's everywhere and nowhere?
"You are a slave" dont make this into a labored metaphor, please.

Diseases. He means diseases
A VIRUS. Boom. "You are a plague and we are the cure" shiver. I love the bland convictioin
THAT IS A LOT OF GUNS HOLY SMOKES PEOPLE
He's only got one facial expression
I dunno Boss Shades, your other Shades friends don't seem to like that
Boss Shades has NO TIME FOR YOUR SMELL apparently

oghfno theyreinside the jship theyrea actuially in there with people get them outttttt
that's not it. STAND
I guess it's the only way they can shake those squid things. but what did that accomplish, huh? The whole story was just to off a mole, scare the Agents with the potential of humanity by taking them out a couple of times, and then...
You know what? No. I'm not angry. This is not a happy movie. It's a thrilling one, but it's black and green and gray and I've always known that. Time for the saviorless denouement then.
Odd bit of... respect there from Smith?
seriously deal with those fucking lasers
is SHE the one? Is she going to go in and become superwoman now that she's inspired by what you love him? How do you love him, he's barely a person
Oh no. NO NO FUCKING NO HOW
OH FOR FUCKS SAKE ITS A FAIRTY TAILE NOW?
okay that right there is pretty friggin cool I hate to say
No time for your bullets, Smith
HE'S SEEING IN CODE
the whole fight on Neo's side is just like "nah"
I'm with you guys whya the hell
wait is he REVERSING IT
OH GOD THE HEAD
annnnnnnnnnd the world bends as Smith explodes
"Yeah we're good. See ya"
GODFUC NOT HTESE THINGS GET THEM OUT OF MY

System failure. He broke the rules.
"I'm going to show them a world without you"
BADASS ROCKING BEAT. SHADES.

iOkay well that was really quiiite a thing wasn't it? I hope the next one's a bit more low-key to give me some brain cool-off time. Hell of a movie. :D
