Classic - The Matrix review by JD

Spoiler Alert
19/08/2012

This is one of the 20 films that you have to watch. It is as much of a sci-fi classic as The Good, The Bad and the Ugly is a western classic. The plot is so original and so complex that any description would both spoil it and be inadequate. If you haven't seen this already this is compulsory.

A once in a lifetime work of genius - The Matrix review by JD

Spoiler Alert
26/05/2018

I just wrote a review on Aliens, probably the best of all sci-fi films.

But as with everything there are big buts making such claims and the Matrix is one mighty big but.

The Matrix blew us all away when we watched it the first time and today it remains one of the best films ever made.

No shakey cam here, just very well drilled actors doing there stuff to one of the most original plots ever devised and bringing special effects to bare of the like never seen before. And on top of that, its also pretty good...

I envy my kids being able to watch something like this for the first time.

And it has to be said, they really dont make films like this anymore!
