Welcome to the desert of the real! Our fifth premium podcast has arrived and this time we are delving deep into the special effects wizardry and philosophical mumbo jumbo that make up The Matrix and its sequels. It has now been over a decade since the first movie was released, so we thought it would be a great time to revisit this cult sci-fi trilogy and determine if it still holds up. We discuss everything from goth aesthetics and bullet time to Zion orgies and whether we would personally choose the red pill or the blue pill. As a bonus, we also talk about the Wachowskis’ family-friendly follow-up Speed Racer. Fasten your seat belt Dorothy, ’cause Kansas is going bye-bye.
