You know, I know this steak doesn't exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious. After nine years, you know what I realize? Ignorance is bliss.
Why are we at The Matrix with retrospectives now? The answer is really easy. In essence, I try to tie in these retrospectives with something current coming out. But I also like it to serve as a database for all franchise possibilities. And when picking what's next, there's either an upcoming film, the timing is notable or I'm in a "this one's for me mode". With current franchises in November, there's Thor...but wouldn't it be more interesting to do a full Avengers retrospective in time for Avengers: Age of Ultron as opposed to Thor>Avengers>Dark World? Plus, after 31 Days of Halloween, I kinda rewarded myself with a break (even though I still did a piece here last week and 8 for Whys So Blu-but HEY, how I choose to take a "break" is how I choose to take a break lol). There is also The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. How about we wait until that series sees closure.
I'm sorry if this wasn't a bigger film analysis, but I'm pretty sure the lot of you are familiar with the film and have done plenty of reading and scouring the web on it to this point. So I share what no other site can, my own personal experience with the film...as this is what the retrospectives all come back to in the end.
