This might be biased toward the awesome side of the scale. Why ? Well, because when I was little, I was supposed to go to bed and instead, I sneaked into the living-room and watched some of it. Even then I thought it was cool and I'll always remember the bright-green credits rolling down that bulky, black t.v's screen. Ever since I've been obssesed with it. Seriously, in Gr. 3 one of my spelling lists was all
about The Matrix, if that's not obssesed I don't know what is !
When I watched it again as a teen, I still thought the overall story and the fights were awesome, train station fight is one of my favourites.
Personally, story wise, I wish we could have found out more about Switch and Apoc. Especially, Switch what with her, by Mouse's "Hypocrite" line, implied lesbianism or, possibly, bisexuality...what with Lana Wachowiski becoming her true self a few years ago, now. As for Apoc, well, Apoc just seems really awesome even though he only has a few lines. I like Matrix: Path of Neo because Apoc, at least, helps Neo out in a few scenes instead of being a, basically, card-board cut-out.
Anyway, one thing I also noticed in that viewing, that I hadn't noticed before - shipping. The fact that Neo/Trinity
, didn't have very much chemistry to me. Or, rather that Neo didn't have any with Trinity. They barely do anything together, barley talk in-universe and then she's saying she loves him. That comes after a talk about the Oracle's prophecy for Trinity and a few implied scenes of her watching Neo sleep.
Sorry, but, I do not
want any damned Twilight in my Matrix, thank you very much. It's a disgrace
to what little, if any
, sanity that I have left. In fact, I thought that Neo and Smith had far more chemistry in their scenes and would've been far more believable. Thus it was that I walked down the path of Shipping Goggles
, Foe Yay
, and Slash fic
Feel free to dispute my shipping preferrences, I just think Neo/Trinity isn't very believable based on their, nearly complete, lack of interaction. Plus, you people still have canon, while I only have wishful thinking so don't get too huffy, please.
Either way, despite my story-line wishes and love of non-canon pairings, I can't recommend it enough.
