Matrix Reviewed

A sassy lawyer in Philippine suburbia comments on Matrix Reloaded (via The Brazos de Dios Cantina). How great is the blogosphere?

After reading so many opinions about its plot, I was convinced that I missed something when I first saw it. So, I watched it again. And again. And again.

The Flea's chores include writing a review of Taking the Red Pill, a collection of essays on The Matrix. One essay quotes Marshall McLuhan to the effect that meat is a distraction for the watchdog of the mind. Which is to say the medium in which the Wachowski Brothers are telling their story effects its content... Basically, I figure the first film was made such that it could stand on its own. Reloaded, by contrast, is actually the first half of a second film which has been broken into two parts. I don't think we will know if Reloaded was any good (no matter how many times I too have seen it) until Revolutions comes out later this year.

Umm... nice to know that I'm not the only one who seems stupefied by Reloaded.
