    After watching quite a few of the Matrix reactions videos, it's interesting to see the various things the reactors focus on. Some pick up on the philosophy, some on computer coding, some just like the special effects or fights scenes. I think because it excels in all these different areas is why it's so popular with so many people.

    The typical Prince charming kiss to bring him back to life seems silly but if you think about it ...he only got shot in The matrix ,in the spaceship where they're at.... His physical ears and brain can hear what she's saying and that's what makes him hear her out of the "dream world matrix" and realize that he's not dead and so his brain started his heart again.

    • GarrusDeWitt
      GarrusDeWitt 2 ай бұрын +3

      @crystal scolza Yeah him being able to differentiate what is real and what is in the matrix because he is the one makes more sense. Because when someone flatlines, they are dead. But because it's happening in the matrix and getting the confirmation that he was the one from Trinity sealed it. So it ultimately was still love that got him back which is a little cheesy but there are a few of those moments in the film. I can take it.

    • crystal scolza
      crystal scolza 2 ай бұрын +5

      @GarrusDeWitthis heart stopped only because his mind believed it, but there was no physical reason for his heart to flatline. Because he was not physically shot. So just like the matrix could trick him into believing he had actually been shot. By her whispering physically into his real ear, his actual brain could hear what she was saying to him. His actual skin could feel her touching him and kissing him. And that is what made him remember, just like the fighting scene that "that's not really air you're breathing" or "there is no spoon" and you didn't really get shot. So his brain restarted his heart, because there was no physical reason for it not to be beating. The reason why nobody else can live after being shot when in The matrix is because they're not neo. They can't fight agents, they can't stop bullets, and they can't control whether they die from injuries.....
      The Oracle even said when she was telling him that he wasn't the one. That it look like he was waiting for something, maybe in another lifetime.... And after he technically died for a few seconds and came back to life.... is when he was able to completely stop the bullets, see the matrix in code and jump into agent Smith.
      Just like Morpheus explaining to him that he wasn't breathing the air. And the little boy explain to him that there was no spoon. Trinity showed to him again that the matrix had no power over giving him death.

    'The Animatrix' is cool. A set of short extra stories/history before The Matrix...each a different style of animation. For the main back-story...how it all came about...I think of it as the future 200 years after the movie 'I Robot'. Worth a watch.

    I was lucky enough to watch this in theaters. There was a sense that movies had all of a sudden "leveled up". You could feel the cultural shift. Everyone had a copy of this movie. When you'd visit friends & family they'd invariably ask if you've "seen it" and were excited to share it, etc. Nothing like it up till that point.

      @Badd Medicine Yeah, this movie was the talk of the town around the water cooler for quite some time in those days, especially in SoCal where I'm from. It just nails a bit of everything, so all groups were trying to "clam it as their own", like, if you were a philosopher type, this movie justified you, if you were Judeo-Christian, you bought into all the illusions of savior Christ and scriptural references, if you were paranoid about government and growing technology in those days it spoke to you, it was a fairytale for those who like sleeping beauty kisses at the end. Like, there was a little something in it for everyone.

    One of the greatest movies of all time. It's the first time the inspiration of anime came into a mainstream movie
    (the wachowskis were directly inspired by ghost in the shell 1995, another genre defining classic film, which is even more obvious on the Animatrix)
    So many ideas about the nature of the human mind, consciousness, systemic oppression and systems of control, AI and the future of technology. It's stuff that's still very relevant today, even more so now that these things are even more part of our daily lives.

      The green tint was added after post production. I remember I was able to download an Open Matte version of this movie. That was the bomb, seeing this awesome movie using 100% of your screen instead of having the top/bottom cropped out with black bars. Only problem was that it didn't have the green tint and it was only 720p since it was pre-production footage.

      Even crazier, not a lot of people noticed that the subsequent DVD's and Blu-Rays they exaggerated the green even more to match up with Reloaded and Revolution. Nearly all the streaming platforms had this greener version. Then they released the UHD a couple of years back, which was color corrected to match more with the original theater release (but even then, streaming platforms still had the greener version)

    I still remember getting this on VHS for my birthday the year it released. My aunt got it for me because I had asked for it, but she didn’t realize it was rated R until I opened it up and people were passing it around reading the synopsis on the back of the sleeve. I was only 9 or 10 but thankfully my parents just decided to watch it with me the first time through to make sure it wasn’t like a hard R rated movie. After that, I watched it so much that I eventually wore out the tape because it was my favorite movie and I had never seen anything else like that before in my young life. I honestly couldn’t even begin to imagination how big a part it played in my growth as a person from that point on, leading me to read more into different life philosophies, learning about AI, coding, hacking, even something simple just like Techno/EDM, and god knows what else. There’s no telling how significant the ripple effect from seeing this movie at that point in my life shaped who I’ve become today. One of my all time favorites. A classic.

    Rewatching this time, I just realized the movie "Inception" was inspired by the Matrix too.
    The scenes where Cobb taught Ariadne how dreams work and how to bend it, it's kind of like the "tutorial scenes" where Morpheus teaches Neo how the Matrix works but instead "believe yourself".

    Loved your reaction ^^Before watching Matrix 2 & 3. You'll need to react to The Animatrix. These are 9 shorts stories on the matrix universe who helps to understand it and to elarge the universe and the lore. Actually there are only 4 of the 9 that really matters to better understand the matrix sequels :
    -The second Renaissance : It's a matrix prequel which tells what happened between humans and machines and why the matrix was created
    -A kid's story : Origin story of a new character in matrix 2 & 3
    -Last flight of the Osiris : It's an introduction to matrix reloaded, litterally a couple of hours before.
    Btw, and unfortunetly, Tank (the operator) won't be on matrix 2 & 3 because the actor had schedules issues. And you have to be aware that for matrix 2 & 3 : They dreamt big and had a lot of ambition. They propel the matrix franchise to be a franchise like star wars & lord of the rings, to tell an epic tale. Actually, it was one of the three big trilogy of the early 2000's with lord of the rings and the star wars prequels. It's such a shame that for people and in pop culture, we only see matrix has one great movie but it is really a great franchise with a lot of lore and a large universe as big as any other saga (like star wars) ^^
    But be aware that the style of each films are different, so don't expect to be a redoing of the first one (if that makes sense).
    To be clear :
    -The first one was kind of a dark sci-fy thriller/detective more than an action film
    -The second one is a pure non-stop action film thrill (and a little bit of a superhero movie)
    -And the third one is a war film
    Btw, matrix 2 (reloaded) and matrix 3 (revolutions) are actually a 4 hours film cut in two parts (they were shot back to back) and this is why they were both released the same year with only a 6 months gap.
    Btw guys, which one of you have seen matrix 2 & 3 and the animatrix ? Did you only watched the first one ? Or did you watched them back in 2003 ? I asked because you didn't talk about that in the video (if I'm not mistaken) ^^

    actually Keanu wasone of my fav heroes through the nineties, starting with Speed. Big crush.
    Loved him in devils advocate although i was too little to see it in the nineties (but i caught speed yeah ;) haha those days) same with point break. class acting.
    i loved his Jonathan in Coppolas Dracula despite imperfections and Constantine was so badass, which came after matrix trilogy. Keanu is really good in most things he's done IMO.
    And Carrie another underrated Canadian actor and am glad they both became the superstars they deserve to be in this film/franchise.
    oh another trivia, Carrie did that granite hall shootout scene with fractured ankle. she broke it while training, but hid her pain so as to not lose her role or get cut out if she delays the production. Blessed thing, she was so adorably dedicated 💖

    The Oracle never said he was not the one. Neo said it and she said she was sorry, but not what she was sorry about. People just assume she was sorry to tell him he wasn't the one, but it's more likely she was sorry that he was the one, but he didn't think he was and didn't want to hear he was the one.

    See I think that’s why she said sorry, you’ve got the goods but It looks like you’re waiting on something. Then Morpheus said she told you exactly what you needed to hear. He needed to hear that to become the one. To feel like he HAD to rescue Morpheus no matter what It took.

    In 1999 my boss got a new phone, we all gathered around her to see her unwrap the Matrix Nokia phone. Looking back it was so silly, but at the same time it's still an awesome feeling, like you were _there_ when the world started to change this quickly because of the internet.
    Edit - watch the 1995 Ghost In The Shell animated movie to see where The Matrix got most of its ideas. Imo it's still the better movie of the two anyway.

    I almost didn't go to this film, because the only thing I knew about Keanu Reeves was Bill & Ted, and I thought, "Really? I don't know..." but my friends had already seen The Matrix and all said, "No, you don't understand! He's great in this, and the whole film is awesome! You have to see it! You have to!" So I begrudgingly went... only to LOVE it. I rewatch the first film every so often, because I just love it so much. It blew my mind, and it's so fun. So so good. Thanks for reacting to it!

    I think this movie can be seen as an inadvertent comment on Keanu's status as a movie star at that point.
    When this film came out, Keanu wasn't the beloved star he is today. He'd had some successes ( Bill and Ted, Speed, Point Break), some failures ( Johnny Neumonic, Chain Reaction) but he would flip genres constantly, going from major studio films to small indie features in radically different genres, so he wasn't necessarily seen as a giant box office draw. He also wasn't considered a top tier thespian, and was constantly criticized for wooden acting in certain roles, as well as his odd vocal inflections and almost androgynous appearance.
    Once the Matrix was released, this uncertainty about Keanu actually subconsciously infects( and imo helps) the film. The doubt about Neo feels real, and the doubt about Keanu the actor is real too, and it helps you to root for him to succeed. Keanu blossomed after this film, just like Neo does.

    If you know a little about Buddhism and self enlightening this movie is a mind blown. The building that Trinity is at the beginning is call Heart, and is where everything starts and ends. All names of the movie are important. Neo is dead 33 seconds. Trinity kiss, she is the Trinity energy he needs to become enlightened. Every scene is you analyze it is like a teaching straight from a class.
