The late Filthy Critic didn’t think highly of The Matrix. The movie was fun to watch, but the plot was painfully familiar. What bugs me about Matrix is that the dystopia that ensues doesn’t appear to be tightly coupled to the decisions of mankind, which at least the Terminator series weakly attempts to do. Perhaps the third Matrix installation will shed some light on some “invisible hand” that set the machines in motion.
It would be great if that movie fingered Larry Ellison as the culprit.
Or Darl McBride. Since Bigger, Longer and Uncut, Bill Gates has become passe as a villian.
