The Matrix

Skkra recommends… The Matrix!

While the second and third films in this series arent as good as the original – the second is entertaining and passable, while the third is a steaming pile of garbage – the first film is a classic.

It’s hard to teleport yourself back in time to when this movie first came out.  I myself was in high school.  But man, was that movie TheMatrixgroundbreaking at the time.  A lot of the effects shots used in the film were revolutionary at the time.  Now you get numb to them, because they’re so common that you see them used in friggin’ cereal commercials on TV.  Not that the movie is nothing but the sum of its special effects.  It’s not a Michael Bay movie we’re talking about here.

The action sequences in this movie stand the test of time, from the martial arts choreography to the gun fights.
