Fans know how to stay up to date through merit on a Marvel movie, but perhaps not on a Matrix movie. However, you definitely should when it comes The Matrix of the Resurrection, which is now in theaters and streaming on HBO Max.
Resurrection is a long-awaited sequel to the original Matrix trilogy (Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix of the Revolution) which brings back Keanu Reeves as Nea and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity. Both characters died Revolutions, or so we thought — but co-writer and director Lana Wachowski is investigating what happened next in her new film.
And after all The Matrix of the Resurrection‘action and drama, there are merits. If you’re like most people, you probably stopped the movie there. But Wachowski in the end has a bit of a cheeky surprise and here’s what happened.
If you’ve watched the movie, you know that in this new version of the Matrix, created by the machines to house Neo and Trinity after Revolutions, Thomas Anderson has created an extremely successful game franchise called … Matrix. And now the owner of the company, Warner Bros., wants to make a fourth game. Something he said he would never do. All that mirrors, exactly what Lana Wachowski passed with Matrix movies.
After the rush hour, we return to the scene that takes place at the beginning of the film and see that Anderson’s confidence in the brain is still trying to break that fourth Matrix it should. Now, whether this is still happening in the film’s Matrix or not – since in the end, Neo and Trinity are no longer under the control of analysts (Neil Patrick Harris) – we don’t know. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. But either way, one of the employees mentions that “Movies are dead. The games are dead. Narrative? Dead. “They believe the media is nothing more than a series of neural triggers. And the answer? Videos about cats.” What we need is a series of videos we call The Catrix. ” He sits down with stupid confidence.
As The Matrix of the Resurrection The scene itself is a joke that works on several levels. The basic idea is incredibly stupid, so it’s funny. However, you have to think that the scene is also probably Wachowski commenting on both her general contempt for modern, mainstream entertainment, and perhaps even previous ideas that people persuaded her to do as a neighborhood Matrix. Ideas that are so stupid and random that they could have been Cat-rix. Hopefully no one in particular has spoken out Matrix with cats, but if you replace cats with “Any random popular thing”, it becomes clearer.
Anyway, it’s a fun little addition to the movie and, in case you missed it, it’s there. The Matrix of the Resurrection now playing.
