Default Re: The Matrix is the greatest movie ever made.

OP makes some valid points. I don't doubt that people would pawn their kids off to machines if it meant free time for them (that's different from the Matrix but we already do it somewhat with technology now and I only see it getting more extreme). I could easily see a world where an elite group of people run the world with advanced machines. I could easily see a lot of crazy things happening because Like Einstein, I am not sure whether our technolgy/humanity is meshing cleanly and I also know there are angry people out there that wouldn't mind destroying everyone. Quantum mechanics shows us that we all live in a virtual nothing so definitely any perception of reality should be challenged. I am pretty sure consciousness cannot be stopped though at this point no matter what happens. Quantum mechanics disproves black holes and that is in line with my own personal theory of light being an unstoppable force... Light spawned consciousness and we are too advanced at this point to be destroyed. There is just too much information.

i agree... it's a "great" movie if one is poorly acquainted with sci-fi and metaphysics, doesn't find keanu laughable, and hasn't watched many movies.


but it did come up with bullet time, mofo.

What are you even saying right now? That the first Matrix isn't a legitimately great film? I'm not with you there, homey.

Keanu's acting or lack thereof works well for this character.

but calling the matrix "great" is like going to a cotton candy factory and getting excited about the sugar content.

Default Re: The Matrix is the greatest movie ever made.

I don't see how anyone can say The Matrix isn't great. I really don't. Is it the best movie ever? Depends on who you ask, obviously.

But if someone asks me that and I say something like 12 Angry Men and they say The Matrix...no argument from me.

i wasn't aware that such was the debate.

regardless, was there even ONE good sci-fi film made during the 90's? solaris...?

in any case, i'd watch any old wong kar-wei, hitchcock, coen bros, woody allen, noir or spaghetti western in favor of watching cotton candy like the matrix. that's just me, though.

How can you say this? You don't like science fiction, do you?

I don't enjoy your implication that those names you listed are inherently above Matrix or any great sci-fi from that decade.

They're entry level, too.

I was expecting your thoughts.

Maybe you just never heard of it. I guess that's a possibility. haha

I'm used to everything being sarcastic and I figured you'd know this film if you're a fan of scifi. My mistake.

Absolutely watch this film. It's a must.
