If you like my work, buy me a virtual cup of coffee at Ko-Fi.
I just finished watching The Matrix Resurrections (2021). I found it in the “new movies” DVD section at my local public library, so renting it costs me nothing. Watching it cost me time (2 hours and 28 minutes) which I’ll never get back.
First of all, I went in with not great expectations. Actually, I didn’t know what to expect.
What I found was that for the first half to two-thirds of the film, I toggled back and forth between interest and boredom.
I probably missed a lot of references to the previous trilogy. While I’ve watched the original The Matrix (1999) dozens of times, I’ve only watched the two sequels one time each. I wasn’t particularly impressed and didn’t see the need to re-watch them, let alone buy the movies.
