I have a few major problems with 'The Matrix' starting with the scene at the very end when "Neo" flies up and towards the screen. It looks severely gay and it's just a let down after all that cool action.
"Morpheus" bothers me as well. First off, how the fuck do his glasses, which have no arms on the frames to go over the ears, stay on his dumb face? And why does he walk around like a self-important jackass with his arms FOLDED BEHIND his back? Seriously, get up right now and try standing like that. It hurts like a bitch right? Why would anyone walk around in such an uncomfortable stance like that?
Also, how come in the future they can build this ridiculous underground city and fly hovercrafts through narrow tunnels at blazing speeds while being jacked into this ultimate virtual reality world, yet these poor bastards are slumming around in filthy, moth-eaten clothes and slurping up disgusting gruel? Are you telling me with all this amazing technology these clowns can't build themselves a fucking washer and dryer? The directors are trying to use that gimmick of "the future is dirty, not clean and shiny" but it doesn't work. Not to mention it's a rip off of 'Alien' and a hundred other movies.
My biggest issue, however, lies with this simple yet glaring plot hole: Why would the machines, who can apparently build themselves into whatever they desire, build this overly complex matrix just to get energy? Why wouldn't they simply fly above the pollution cover and collect solar energy directly from the sun in space? It makes no sense that the intelligent machines (another movie rip off) would bother wasting time with humans at all. Building the matrix potentially sows the seeds of their own destruction...am I the only one that sees this? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills sometimes.
Anyway, I've seen this movie 6 billion times and I'm sure I'll never run out of negative shit to say about it.
This should be required viewing for anyone in sales. Alec Baldwin's part alone is insane, and he's only on screen for like 10 minutes!
There are some people who don't have the brain capacity or patience to sit through a true masterpiece like this movie. It's a real shame. Still others have never even heard of it, yet a giant piece of shit like 'Avatar' breaks box office records. Stupid.
