I am incredibly excited to make this announcement. Beginning tomorrow (Wednesday) and continuing for the follow two Wednesdays, Nate will be reviewing each of the Matrix films in a comprehensive set of reviews, examining each of them not just individually, but as part of a larger whole. Why so excited you ask? Oh, I dunno, maybe it’s because The Matrix is my favorite movie of all time!
Aside from my personal bias and love for these films, or at least the first one for sure, The Matrix is also one of the most widely used films when it comes to savior analogies. There have been entire books written analyzing the philosophy and theology represented in The Matrix, often drawing comparison to people or stories in The Bible. Since we examine movies from a Christian perspective, it seems only fitting that we throw in our two cents as well. The Wachowski brothers broke some real ground both visually and figuratively with the release of the first film in 1999, and we’re excited to put the trilogy under the microscope. So come back tomorrow and check out the first in this set of reviews!
