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.
