Binge Movie Aftertaste – The Matrix Retrospective w/ Jack Falvey and Alyx Ancira: The Matrix Reloaded (2003)

On September 29, 2017 by Garrett Collins

In 2003, The Matrix was king. Four years following its global phenomenon stamping run in theaters, hype was mounting to the highest degree for The Wachowskis’ long in development two follow-ups, both of which were due in the Star Wars-less year of 2003. Producer Joel Silver was in eight page magazine articles proclaiming what his two filmmakers have up their sleeves will once again blow everyone’s minds. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss were tight lipped about where their characters could possibly go after reaching the heights of the first film. And ‘Larry Fish’ Laurence Fishburne was…apparently eating at the buffet table in anticipation.

Once the first of those two sequels, The Matrix Reloaded, was finally released in May of 2003, a whole film going community became completely divided, with most on the side of asking where everything went wrong. But where do the three hosts of this podcast stand?

Listen as fights ensue, and long winded monologues & onscreen fights are psychoanalyzed. Was the film overhyped, or is it just an underrated blockbuster? And were we actually looking forward to the third film (which we review next week) when it was over? Listen below to find out!
