The Matrix

Episode 5: On its 25th anniversary, The Matrix remains a powerful example of how revolutionary science fiction can be
6

The Matrix is one of my all-time favorite movies. As I mention in this pod, it is firmly in my top 10 movies. It’s a nearly perfect thrill ride with enough meat to make you think.

Agree? Disagree? Drop a comment! I’d also love to hear your thoughts about the movie in general, or your memories of seeing it the first time.

In This Episode

  • What do you think happened to spoon boy?

  • Remembering the ‘What is the Matrix?’ ad campaign

  • Working at Blockbuster Video in 1999

  • What is The Matrix? (The film)

  • Exploring the mysteries of the Matrix

An irreverent celebration of pop culture. Funny asides and probably overly serious analysis on movies, TV shows, and video games. Mainly focusing on stuff from the 1980s - 2010s. New episodes every week.
