Two extra wins: - the reason for the "lots of guns" for the foyer gunfight was to avoid reloading. Neo and Trinity always drop an empty gun and grab a new one instead. - the way the agents fight. Their moves are simple (punch, kick, shoot, block, dodge, 1 kind of each), but it's effective because they can do it faster than human beings, which is similar to how computers function (simple calculations done extremely fast)

Trinity: “No one has ever done anything like this.” Neo: “That’s why it’s going to work.” He IS the smart guy here. This is a “Zero Day Exploit”, a common thing that any hacker would know. A hole in the security that has never been patched is repaired for “Zero Days” and the knowledge that no one has ever done that is proof it can be exploited and attacked. The knowledge that no one has attempted this before is all he needs to know to know that the plan can succeed. It’s a subtle nod to his hacker roots, and his understanding of how the agents think.

10:17 - I can actually explain how Neo came back to life because of that kiss from Trinity. For you see, Morpheus said that our brain makes Matrix real for us (so if we die there we will die in real life) and in the moment Neo got shot by Smith his brain thought he was dead in real life. But when Trinity kissed him, he felt it. He felt that he was on the ship and He felt that he was still alive. That's how he came back

Very good. To be the one, he must be (to use a gaming term) "dual natured", existing in both realms at the same time. The real is the real, and the Matrix is a spiritual realm. Or is it the other way around. But because he could be in both places, he was the one to bridge the gap.

@Garry Bartlett that's the thing. He wasn't totally convinced. Part of him wasn't, which is how Morpheus recognized him and helped him leave. But part of him was, hence the shock with leaving the matrix and how they can only accept people "above a certain age"

Your cheat code comparison is interesting. There's an arc in The Matrix Online that involved operatives getting their hands on unstable obsolete Agent upgrades colloquially called "cheat codes" that gave them comic book style superpowers. It was not a particularly liked arc, to put it mildly. But the idea is baked into the lore, either way.

Maand geleden
starschwar +7
starschwar

@Sekoia Thank you. As I said they were "obsolete" upgrades. The Agents stopped using them because they were too attention-grabbing. So flashy that they caused more people to awaken, rather than containing the problem. That's why they were retired, and Agents went to the traditional tactics we see - the G-Men rather than super villains. An exile, a Sentinel commander called The General stole the Cheat Codes and gave them to Niobe who was hell-bent on revenge at the time, hoping the chaos that would have ensued would have restarted the war and given him renewed purpose. One of Niobe's followers, Anome, stole the codes and went on an insane rampage. Zion had been awakening a lot of sociopaths, evidently. Of special note: When the Agents finally disposed of the codes in the manner in which the Oracle instructed them, Seraph was exposed. He went a little berserk, but for good purpose - revealing a dark secret that the Machines had been hiding from the awakened community since the start of the truce. But that is an even longer story.

The reason Trinity flipping looks wonky is that she twisted her ankle while rehearsing the flip day of the shoot. That meant they had to film it in two shots instead of one fluid motion. She was devastated about it because she wanted it to look as good as possible. This is in the BTS. Also, Neo looking wonky while doing the backflip in the dojo is Keanu using the wires attached to his hips to propel himself backwards. That’s why it looks off. He does it again after flipping away from Smith in the subway.

Worth noting about 90s ennui that a lot of it was actually heavily driven by the working class. Grunge music, for example, was not a product of middle-class folks in comfortable suburbs. Wages had been stagnating since the 70s, and people were increasingly aware of social stratification and the harmful impacts of capitalism. The idea that the future was bleak and that people could not expect a higher or even equal standard of living to their parents, no matter what they did, was beginning to dawn, along with the increasing awareness of how dehumanizing and alienating office work tends to be. The thing that makes 90s ennui into ennui, and not anything else, is that people genuinely had no idea how to react to it. They couldn't imagine alternatives, in part because of how successful the War on Drugs had been in eliminating leaders of social movements that proposed them. Capitalist realism reached a cultural hegemony. Add in a growing consciousness of environmental degradation, it's no wonder people felt miserable. I'm not going to argue that 90s ennui wasn't heavily focused on white people, with a particular catering to white men, but treating it somewhat tritely as privileged and wealthy white folks moping about how being privileged, wealthy, and white doesn't solve *all* your problems is selling short a kind of unconscious awareness of a whole generation that the world was broken and they had no idea how to fix it.

plus it was into the 90's that the traditional "family" view started to really hit the breaking point. With the wealth gap ballooning and the wage stagnation and inflation pushing more into poverty who previously would have been middle class, the idea of single income homes was becoming more and more of a pipe dream. throwing that wrench in the cogs of a society with near terminally strict gender roles is going to cause issues.

The one question I've always wanted to ask is when Smith refers to humanity as a virus, doesn't that mean that the machines are analogous to parasites that feed off the energy of the viruses that Smith dispises so much? As for the trans interpretation... I'm glad it helps some folks in ways that give me a broader view of the movie in the process. Every good story will always mean different things to different people and anyone that thinks they've cornered the market on the truth of something for everyone, that attitude officially passes into loudmouth noise, for me.

​@flibber frogman Although I know the Wachowskis are trans, I never really noticed the trans allegories. But of course it makes sense. You can't have a piece of art without a piece of the artist. But I disagree with it not being subtle. I mean, the whole Neo being Jesus thing, now that one wasn't subtle! Compared to that, the trans themes weren't too obvious and I don't know if many people would agree on them if the Wachowskis weren't known to be transgender themselves. But of course that's just my opinion.

Smith probably just talks out of his ass, via either misunderstanding or being oblivious to the nature of life due to being a program. How he describes humanity, that's how EVERY living organism functions. There's just a lot of external forces that limit the organism's ability to multiply (food, environment, predators, ETC). Humans have just became too powerful so that they overcame all their limiters. But put a rabbit in an environment without predators - and it will wreck it just as fast as a "bad greedy selfish human" would. The entire _organic life_ is a virus.

Maand geleden

I doubt Smith cares about the machines, perhaps even despises them as well. His 'I hate this place' speech to Morpheus shows he keeps his own agenda a secret from them. I imagine that he thinks he/agents are unlike animals in nature, more transcendental beings like angels. Also, it's worth noting that the machines were independent until humanity nerfed the sun so they are not parasitic by nature.

@Impybutt They've since said that it was intentional. Also the whole "there's something wrong with your perceived reality but it's such a basic part of everything that it's almost undetectable and the only way to confirm it's there is to speak to other people who share your experience" things is pretty on the nose. Especially with the redpill stylised after oestrogen pills at the time that lets you wake up and see your real body for the first time. The wachowski sisters are good, so very little if anything represents just one theme or idea, but the trans allegory is very much there and not very subtle beyond the fact that a lot of people aren't familiar enough with the subject to see it.

If this film helped you on whatever journey you were/are on, be it self-discovery, transitioning, opening you to philosophy, recognising that the human race is a giant system that is dependent on each other and so we cannot truly say that the problems of one, does not affect us all, whatever it is that you understand when the film said, "free your mind", this random guy on the internet is happy for you. I hope you can look back at yourself and see progress and are proud of the person you are today. Also, I found out a few weeks ago that the Wachowski Sisters had considered making a Matrix game WITH HIDEO KOJIMA. Now, I feel like the world has been robbed, I know I was. I would have played the living daylights out of that game.

@TheMike0088 Biologically they are male yes, but it is not what they Identify as. They wish to be Identified as women because it is how they feel. Gender is social, sex is biological. They aren't mutually exclusive, but do not conflate one to the other. I.E. a man choosing to wear a suit isn't biological, but their genitalia IS biological. When talking about transgender people, it is best to get rid of the whole biological argument because it is more nuanced than that.

Maand geleden
TheMike0088
TheMike0088

@David Gowers Ah, I see. But now I'm confused about something else: Male and female are the biological terminologies, aka what sex a person is. Being trans refers to gender, which to my knowledge is the social and mental construct of what is associated with a specific sex, not to the sex itself. So while they are women since they're trans, its also true that they are male, no?

Re: Trinity loving Neo after a few hours, it's established right at the start that she's been watching him. And that she likes him, although she denies it.

I first saw this movie in my 30's and I was a return college student studying literature and I had a *field day* with The Matrix, I loved the symbolism! When the LOTR movies came out, I had the hardest time wrapping my mind around the fact that Hugo Weaving was in *both* franchises, the two characters were so different. I think the only thing they had in common is that they walked with authority and you knew that if you were smart, you wouldn't want to mess with either of them, but one worked for darkness and the other for light, two heads of the same coin.

While I enjoyed the sequels - I came out of the cinema after the first one never thinking it needed a part 2 or 3. For me it was an excellent total package with a very direct message. Neo can do anything now (obviously before parts 2 and 3) - he can literally bend the world as you perceive it to his will, but he won't...because that's for you, the audience and the people who populate the Matrix to decide . Do you want to live as part of the machine, never knowing more but leading a relatively straight forward life, or do you want to rise up, break the machine and take the new life offered to you, even if its hard? And that's why RATM hit so hard when the credits role. But that was just what I felt at the time, my take away thoughts from the very first time I watched it. :)

One thing someone point in this movie is the clothes especially the evolution of Neo, during training, he wears a normal vest and pants. When he returned to the matrix he as a simple suit, and finally when he go save Morpheus it's badass gear time. Something you can miss is, like a video game, they lose part of the clothes when they take damage: first glass which is kinda a barrier for the mind, then coat what protect the upper body.

Your point about the philosophical messages being deep but the story still being easy to follow is one of the reasons I think The Matrix holds up not just as a great film but also as an immensely profound one. I had this conversation with an old coworker comparing Tenet and The Matrix. Both are "smart" movies but The Matrix is smart in the sense that it could be dissected and understood as something more, yet you never have to do that. You can just sit back and appreciate the cool visuals and fun story and nothing else. Tenet, on the other hand, tried to beat you over the head with how smart it was. And although I enjoyed Tenet, it ended up being for everything except its intellectual components, whereas The Matrix still works on all of its levels.

I actually have a funny anecdote about Tenet, because I liked it the first time I watched it and _thought_ that I understood it right away, and I know a few people that had a similar experience... But lo and behold, a couple months later, a podcast host I follow who absolutely hated the movie to the point of deriding it as a POS changed his mind after rewatching the movie several times and proceeded to explain the movie to their podcast co-hosts (which was more or less the same as Lee's explanation)... As it turns out, people who thought the same as me did NOT even really understand the logistics of the movie's plot in the first place... So yeah... Now I have a theory that people who liked Tenet right away probably liked it because they just _thought_ they understood the movie...

this movie is exactly the reason why, i usually stop watching trailers and avoid spoilers once i've decided already i want to see a movie i knew next to nothing about this film when i saw it, and i think that's by far the best way to see it and i prefer to give most movies i see that opportunity, in particular, if you get a sense that the film maker is deliberately telling you in the marketing that they're keeping something a secret if you've decided to see the movie, give the film maker the opportunity to surprise you

And, in a similar vein, no matter how awesome your home theater is, if you know the movie is going to be great, see it in a movie theater. Big screen, monster sound system, comfy chairs, I've seen movies at home that were astounding, but there's something about watching a premiere in the movie theater that cannot be duplicated at home.

One of the first things I noticed about the movie was that in the climax they have a character giving a "you can't be dead because I love you" speech, which is nothing new, but have that speech make perfect logical sense, rather than just being an expression of disbelief, which is unusual.

To be fair to Trinity, I don’t think she killed those cops. In my mind, it was Agent Smith blaming her for killing them when she just knocked them out, but the Agents killed them to cover up the crazy leather clad super woman who kicked their asses. Agents can’t afford to let any hints or evidence of the Matrix get out. So when he says “your officers are already dead” he means that they’re no longer allowed to live because they witnessed Trinity do her thing. I don’t think they just murder indiscriminately… the guys at the Agent building are also programs, so not alive. They only kill when they need to and incapacitate everyone else.

@ferastu You know what, I think you’re right. That does fit with Morpheus and his “Anyone else is a potential enemy” speech during the red dress scene. I figured maybe a person had to be conscious and awake for an agent to inhabit their body, but I don’t think that’s how it works.. we never see them inhabit a sleeping or unconscious person that I know of… maybe that super drunk homeless guy? Idk.. you’re probably correct tho.

@Cass They are civilians. Civilians always die in war. The people in the way are innocent, not the enemy. Also, none of these people are in war. All of them are minding their businesses. THEY are the attackers. These people are just defending themselves from THEM. Neo and the rest of gang are the terrorists and are the criminals. What they are trying to accomplish is the right thing, but that does not make their actions any less violent or malicious. They ARE killing people that are 100% innocent. Doesn't mean they are wrong, but that is what they are doing. Of course they are not killing everybody because for one, they still have some morals and two, that would cause too much attention. But if killing all these people, including children, was the only way to stop the Matrix, they would do it. To them, if they can't be soldiers to the cause, they are useless and meaningless. You cannot deny this. They don't feel any remorse when these people die. Again. These people are innocent of all of these. Just because they got stuck in between Zion's and Matrix's conflict, does not make them any less Innocent. They are like us, just living their life and going to work, except with less choices and control.

@Orange Taxi They're not killing civilians though. It's just people in their way; which happens in literally every war ever fought. If someone is armed, and in between you and your objective... they're an enemy combatant by definition. Just because said enemy is ignorant to the true stakes doesn't make them any less of an enemy. It's not like they're gunning down random people on the street or doing suicide bombings.

@Cass But they are not the enemy. All of them are civilians, and even less than civilians. All of them are no different than children. Each and every one of them are just living their life.

My take: Yes, they knowingly kill people. That said, this is a war. Just because nobody knows they're in the midst of one doesn't mean they're not enemy combatants. If they stand between you and your objective, you can either fight them... or you can just give up. On top of that, the potential for anyone to become an agent at any time means there's no room for hesitation. In summary, they're terrorists... but that doesn't mean they're the bad guys. EDIT: Actually now that I think on it, they don't meet the definition of terrorism either. Terrorists perform violence to provoke fear, in service of political goals. The characters in the Matrix only use violence to achieve specific tangible objectives, and certainly never do it to inspire fear in the general populace (or else they'd be claiming credit for the attacks and deliberately targeting civilians or public figures).

Hell, even when the movie makes a genuine goof or mistake you actually manage to make either a good explanation or just lampoon it in a way that's genuinely funnier then whatever CinemaSins can ever think of.

Not to mention, when something is genuinely bad, he removes a win. CinemaSins, on the other hand, removes a sin when something is good, then adds one or two back immediately for some other tiny detail, nitpick, or personal opinion/arbitrary "I don't like this movie" reason. It's personally one of the most annoying things about CinemaSins. Whenever you think "Oh, so this moment was good?" they undo that feeling with "However, I don't like ______, so two more Sins just for good measure". CinemaWins always has legitimate Wins on the board, even if those Wins are just "Damn this is freaking COOL!!!" because we live for those moments. Of course they're Wins. The channel banner says it all: "Because liking things is more fun than not liking things".

Okay, since you briefly brought it up. The whole trans allegory is, like the film itself, deeper than just the surface level. Personally I always saw the film as an allegory for being who you really are, realising your true self/potential and whatnot, which definitely includes transitioning. That's what makes The Matrix unique for me, all these different people with different perspectives all coming up with their own theories on what the movie can mean. Everyone has their own ideas and headcanons and so on, it's fun to discuss it and see what everyone takes away from the movie. That's why I feel it's managed to stay relevant even after all this time.

​@Geo Da Sponge You seem to think I have nothing else to say or that I'm retreating when I wasn't the one digging down on the puberty blockers to begin with, it was just one of several concerns with it being a trans allegory I raised in my first few comments and I have more not raised here. With BeepSmile they were just throwing insults at me and not making any arguments, Cass was the one that decided to pick up the hormone blockers argument out of everything else so I responded to what they was saying until they ran away, then Mayaya attempted to pick up the argument and again they ran away and in this case even deleted all their posts. I wasn't the one retreating or picking the topic of children transitioning, Cass and Mayaya did. If you re-read the comments you'll notice I'm the only one who has stated at what age they believe someone can consent to transitioning therapy and surgery, I stated my line clearly at 18 when nobody else has been willing to say where theirs is. If they had said 16 or 17 then we could have had a conversation about why their lines are drawn slightly younger than mine. Or they, like you, could have brought up the length of time their feelings of dysphoria had lasted as the determining factor for when a child should be allowed to undergo transitioning. Or indeed what level of medical treatment for it they had already gone through, there's plenty to be discussed there if anyone else had been willing to. You accuse me of not being open to discussion or trying to force people into yes or no answers but where do you see me doing so? And of course, don't think I didn't notice you failed to state your own opinion on any of the questions you brought up. You might be better at hiding your petty insults and having to state your own stance than the other's but I see what you are doing. You have accused me of doing what everyone else did.

@Anders Hansen I'm not here for a long discussion, I'm just going to explain to others how what you're doing is an ideological shell-game. See the problem is that after you were challenged on your original comment, you've kind of manoeuvred yourself to the one talking point that you feel comfortable defending; you've gone from the asinine suggestion that "Gosh, if there's a trans allegory to this film, then that must mean that EVERY element of the film is a metaphor for a specific part of the trans experience, and I guess that means trans people are like terrorists according to the film!", to "Well what about giving hormone blockers to kids, HMMMM?" The reason people have no interest in engaging with you on this point is that there's absolutely no relationship between those points, unless you have an axe to grind against trans people. This is quite a common tactic amongst anti-trans debaters; retreat to the point where you feel comfortable defending, and keep on banging on about that point regardless of how irrelevant it is the initial discussion. Use puberty blockers as a way to discuss the "threat" of trans "ideology", despite the fact that no part of the film could possibly be read as an allegory for any kind of childhood transitioning. Anyway. In response to your repeated stated question of "Should children have the right to permanently alter their body?", it's inherently a vague question that you're writing in a very loaded way. You say "children" to mean "anyone under the age of 18", but that's a very wide range. Are we talking 12? 15? 17, even? If the question posed was "Should a 17 year old have the final say on medical decisions that will affect the rest of their life?" then I expect you'd get a lot more people answering yes. But that's just one variable you're ignoring for the sake of a loaded question. How long has the person had feelings of dysphoria? Six months? Six years? What level of medical advice have they been provided with? Have they made non-medical changes to their life, and if so, how have they made a difference to their life? And what do their parents think? After all, children have medical procedures with potential long-term effects done to them all the time, when their parents are consenting. Quick aside, I'm aware that obviously if we're talking about puberty blockers specifically, we're talking about pre-pubescent kids (although even then, puberty isn't an overnight thing, so... That's another can of worms to open that you clearly don't want to). Point is, you're trying to talk in absolute statements about medical treatment, which will always be a very personal subject in terms of both the desires and the medical needs of the individual. You can see this nonsense with the last two questions you asked as well: No medical treatment is ever guaranteed to be completely harmless, so asking if people consider delaying puberty to be *completely* harmless is nothing more than a baited trap. A much more fair question would be "Do you believe delaying puberty or artificially changing the process through hormones can be better than not doing so?" As for the second question, no one is giving children the choice to make the change entirely on their own; there's parental consent and advice from medical professionals as well. To use your own example, kids absolutely can do drugs... If they have medical advice prescribing those drugs and parental consent. This is why people are accusing you of sophistry; you're taking a very complicated subject, the answers to which will vary depending on who is the subject of the question, and boiling it down into a simple yes or no answer. My big question to you is: If you sympathise with the plight of trans people in general, then why did you bring up the controversial subject of puberty blockers while discussing a film that doesn't have a single child character in it? I believe the answer is because you know "Think of the children!" sells well.

@Mayaya I don't think any kids should be given hormone blockers unless medically necessary to ensure a normal natural development. Hormone treatments and transition surgery are elective procedures and it interferes with the body and minds natural development when given as treatment for gender dysphoria. Most kids who experience gender dysphoria does not grow up to be trans, they grow up to be bi or homosexual. There's no way to know which ones grow out of it by the time they become adults and which ones don't. Children are unable to foresee the long term consequences of their choices, in your teens the limit is about 6 months into the future so giving elective treatment based on whatever a child is feeling at that moment which has permanent effects on their development is unethical in my book. I don't understand why you try to force the "trans kids versus cis kids" when that has never been the argument I'm making. The line I'm arguing for is children versus adults, until you reach 18 and you can take legal responsibility for your choices then we as a society should protect children from themselves. I don't know how long ago it was that you were a teen, hell maybe you still are one. But if you are an adult now, can you honestly say your view of yourself and the world matches completely with your views as a 11 year old, 14 year old and 16 year old? 1st question I see being dodged: Do you believe delaying puberty or artificially changing the process through hormones is completely harmless? And 2nd question: Why are you okay with children being given the choice to permanently alter their body when the reason children aren't allowed to join the army, do drugs, participate in porn, vote and a whole other hosts of things is because as a society we recognize that they don't have maturity to foresee the long term consequences of those choices? Your argument that "it's just healthcare" hinges entirely on their perception of who they are, while being kids, being fully formed and never changing as they mature into adults.

@Mayaya You were the one that just said it wasn't done by trained medical professionals. I thought I answered that, no I'm not okay with children being given hormone blockers because they are experiencing gender dysphoria. What I see is you and others dodging the question of if you are okay with children transitioning. As I said, my line is 18 for the same reason that's the age we have drawn for joining the military etc etc. Do you honestly believe delaying puberty is just harmless, that it has no impact on the childs development? Starting to think you are arguing in bad faith by the way you keep dodging questions, although I will grant you that you are more skillful at doing so.

When people argue over whether the film is a trans allegory or not, IMO on some level they're thinking, "That's a niche thing, so it can't be a huge part of the movie." But no, the trans experience is just *more relatable than most people realize*. Trans people are less common, but that doesn't mean the trans experience has to be alien and unknowable to everyone else. Maybe you're relating to it as a cis person more than you thought you would, and that's ok. It's a good thing to find relatable aspects in other people.

No, the thing about the Matrix is, it's so nebulous that different interpretations will tell you more about the people watching the movie than the movie itself. The real themes of this movie aren't, "This is what it feels like to be trans." The themes are discussions of identity, individuality, confusion, and the nagging feeling that you have a perception that doesn't align with the perceptions of everyone around you. These are ideas that are so broad that anyone can find a personal connection to the film. It just so happens that the people who made it are trans, so they can connect with it because of the process they went through in discovering their identity. But that's not a direct allegory, that's just how the Watchowski's applied their art to their own life experiences.

I'm not trans, but what I gather, the "trans experience" you're referring to is an experience of self-discovery. Who am I, and what is my place in the world? Those are questions that are relevant to everyone. In my mind, a good trans allegory HAS to ask these questions for it to work properly, and they are questions that everyone can relate to on some level. Doesn't mean you relate to the trans experience as a whole, just to those specific questions that are part of that whole.

The scene where Neo is about to leave the Matrix but a hobo turns into Agent Smith feels oddly similar to that.

Thoughts that the movie makes me have: what if the idea of losing time (instance where someone can't account for a given span of time for reasons unknown) is just for a duration where they're overwritten by an Agent, at least until said Agent departs? I don't know if it's addressed in expanded materials what happens if an Agent de-possesses somebody (or if they even can, but I would think the answer would be yes, since otherwise the rational answer to keep everyone compliant would just be continuous "possession"). What if deja vu has a secondary form, applicable to individuals previous possessed by an Agent (going somewhere they've never been, or doing things they've never done, but the Agent did)? Oh, and as much as I'm sure it could ruffle some feathers, I don't see the movies as a trans allegory, per se. More specifically, I see it in a less specific light. To be precise; just be yourself, and you'll be stronger for it, rather than trying to constantly be what others want/expect you to be.

One of the reasons you like the Matrix so much: it is so easy to understand the main story, but there is so much more underneath, makes me think of why I adore avatar last airbender. When you're a little kid, you just wished you could bend the elements and defeat the evil firelord, but as you get older and rewatch it, you find all the nuggets of wisdom the creators put in the show without anyone demanding that from them: lessons on life, love, loss, self-imposed hurdles, destiny, balance, understanding others. It rubs shoulders with other GOAT series for me.

I feel like people in general still get the intended reaction for the ending at any time and in any age, its rather timeless. It's founded in core philosophical concepts and implied issues that can morph to meet the issues of when its being viewed. Also, Rage Against the Machine.

One thing I'd like to point out is something from an analysis from another channel. Musically speaking, anything related to the robots is done on a Diatonic scale, whereas everything related to humanity is done on a Chromatic scale. Diatonic being a bit more structured and Chromatic having all the in-betweens. Very subtle stuff, but brilliant nonetheless.

something i always like is that the agents tend to use high calibre weapons (e.g. the desert eagle) but they show extremely little recoil while just shooting with an extended arm something you defiantly wouldn't be able to do with that gun

10:08 I don't think they show off how long they've been around each other. It's definitely been at least a few months, because I'm sure it took a while for him to be able to walk and everything. So at least a few months to get in the moving shape and more to get to the point in this movie that this is at. So it's entirely possible she could think she feels that way. 🤔

Hey! Great video, as always. A lot of great analysis, and a lot of fun. I would like to say, and I mean absolutely no ill will with this, I do kind of feel that it is doing the topic of the trans allegory a bit injustice to not talk about it. If it was simply a fan theory I think I could agree more, but since both Wachowski sisters are trans and have since confirmed that the film was indeed meant to be a trans allegory, I feel like that becomes a point that's integral to the movie and its analysis as well. I also think that there's an argument to be made that the visibility and insight that could be provided through the analysis of this piece of media that's very important to the trans community might help more than trying to shelter us from harm by not talking about it. That being said, I do understand and respect your decision to not talk about it and the reasoning behind it.

One little neat detail about the final scene. When Neo comes back from the dead and the rest of the crew are standing in awe on board the Nebuchadnezzar, if you slow down the scene a lot and follow the camera shake, it forms a cross.

Hi! Every of your videos are so enjoyable on the films that I even want to watch again to see what I had missed. Because your commentary on them goes in details that may have passed unoticed by many. Your videos do brighten my day. And I don't know if you still take any request but is it possible for you to ever do a video on Arcane its a recent animated series based on league of legends video game. Its on Netflix.

Hey! I always love to hear your take on a movie. Especially your appreciation on the scores and composers of them. If you want to watch a video that takes a DEEP dive on analyzing the score for the matrix, I recommend this: https://youtu.be/HhRjn_jpQxk Excited for Reloaded 😁

0:45 You can also look at it as "no, neo is NOT the one...yet. he has the gift, like she said, but he can't fully tap into it. "Who knows, maybe in your next life or something." Neo becomes the one after he dies and comes back...in his next life.

Slightly off on one point of your analysis. They don't project themselves as they want to be seen, they project themselves as they see themselves. Neo never consciously chooses to look like he does, he just looks that way when he's there. Not a huge difference, but it is a vast difference philosophically, which is what this movie is all about. Especially when considering the original intention of Switch.

7:39 Pepsi Machine in the background has a RED and BLUE logo as a person freed from the matrix fights the means by which the matrix enforces itself. Thoughtful product placement! 8:43 HP computer logo right by Smith as the train hits him, does that count as a System Crash?

I always saw the Oracle as saying "You aren't The One, the next one is" as if to say Neo won't be The One until his next life. And he only fully comes into his powers, after dying.

One thing that I absolutely have to love the Matrix for is that it inspired the aesthetics of the Madness Combat series. A random rebel pseudo stick figure guy in black leather fighting a organization filled with MIB that eventually grew into such a fantastic series.

9:11 I always saw it as Neo slowly becoming the master of the Matrix. Untill he realises he's being shot, bullets affect him dramatically less. He's coming to the point where the world becomes how he percieves it

8:42 That’s a cool detail I never noticed despite knowing Agent Smith switched bodies after being run over by the train. 9:07 I liked that clever joke you did about Trinity and room 303.

So I had never seen this movie before watching it for the first time today and knew nothing of it. I loved it, of course, and after watching this video it's obvious I missed a lot of the symbolism. The entire design of the movie is amazing! Every aspect of it, from the sound to the cinematography. The only thing I made a heavy connection to was the Alice in Wonderland references because I found the many similarities between the stories intriguing but I didn't immediately think of any other deeper meanings. Hearing and reading about the religious and transgender meanings interpreted makes it so much more interesting and gives it so much more depth. Its amazing that after so many years it can still hold so much meaning!

Something that I always noticed is that when Tank wears the headpiece/boom-mic, you can't see the edges, but when Cypher wears it, you can and the edges look like devil horns.

It's great that you are doing the Matrix movies since we have a new one coming next month. But I'm curious to know if you plan on tackling the best comic book ever made. Zack Snyder's Justice League.
