Binge Movie Aftertaste – The Matrix Retrospective w/ Alyx Ancira and Jack Falvey: The Matrix (1999)

On 1 September, 2017 by Garrett Collins

There is absolutely no doubt how much the movie making landscape changed in March of 1999. That was when famed action producer Joel Silver (Lethal Weapon) released the vision of two siblings known as The Matrix. Made on a budget of $63 million, the science fiction thriller became a phenomenon, to the point that it took the visual effects Oscar from George Lucas’s Episode 1. It was then that it became abundantly clear that a new vision had arrived.

Join Alyx, Jack, and myself as we go down the rabbit hole of The Matrix, and dissect what it was about this movie that grabbed the movie going public so tight. And keep coming back, as one by one we will pull apart each film in the series (yes, even The Animatrix) and debate whether this groundbreaking series really became the pariah it is perceived by many to be. Hopefully, all other podcasts in this series will end like this one, which consists of one host completely kicking himself for his rating afterwards.
