The Matrix, retrospectively

Posted on November 17, 2003 at 10:14 AM in Film | Permalink

Well, I did it, I went and saw revolutions over the weekend. While I'm not going to rip into it as others have done (spoiler warnings), I must say it was not the conclusion of the trilogy that I would have preferred. What happened wasn't nearly as disappointing as what didn't happen. Too many loose ends, too many questions of a purely practical nature were completely ignored. Like Where did Zion get food & water from? And what was with all the tatty clothes when they were able to construct machines like they did?

Why were Zion's defences so pathetic, why no EMP in the dock & why have those ridiculous mech-type machines rather than some more practical type of defensive system. The whole defensive system was designed to be melodramatic rather than practically defensive, which, seeing as it's a movie is OK. But if the Wachowski bros wanted us to believe in the reality they constructed, a little attention to detail on these things would have been appreciated.

I went in there not expecting to be amazed by the story, so I was in no way disappointed. At the end of the day it was a fun ride & my $12 was well spent to see Hugo Weaving be brilliant once again as Agent Smith. "Mr Anderson, welcome back. We missed you".

Are you aware that no credit can be just as bad as bad credit? It seems totally unfair but this is the reality. It's just the way things work in the world of consumer credit. Lenders are very leery about lending money to anyone without a history of being able to repay the debt. They have no way of knowing if you are a good risk or a bad risk.So what's someone in this situation to do? You can't get a rental car, stay in a hotel or shop online without a credit card. So let's look at
