The Matrix

Posted on by Eggy

The Matrix was released in 1999 and to this day I still believe it to be the best movie ever released. Not only did it have great characters and awesome fighting scenes, but the storyline changed movies, games and pop culture forever. Referencing the matrix that we are all stuck in has become such a common reference it's a household name. The fact is it appeals to people that believe the world we live in is fake. You could take that in a literal way or take it in a more figurative way as such that the general person doesn't know whats going in life.

Of all movies in the world I believe are a must see, it is this one and the 2 sequels. It also has some of the best fighting choreography I've ever seen. It's fast but also very technical. The scene where he fights 100s of agent smiths is my favourite fight scene ever made. The moves he uses are damn right cool. 

The movie explores so many different subjects, from programming, gaming, virtual worlds, wool over our eyes, the mirror reflection, what is real and what is not real, fighting, love, survival, machines AI and more.
