What the hell was wrong with me?
Okay, I'll admit it. 1999 wasn't my shining hour of good decision making and clearest judgment (for example). I vaguely remember seeing The Matrix. I'm pretty sure it was after it came out on video and I'm also pretty sure that I fell asleep during it. I remember thinking it was an interesting premise, but too much of a video game for me. When the second one came out, I had forgotten everything about the first one, so it made even less sense to me.
But lately I've had a hankering to watch it again. It arrived this past week from Netflix and we watched it last night.
OH. MY. GOD.
I don't understand how I did not love this movie. Keenau didn't even bug me. In fact, he was kinda hot. SO many things make SO much more sense to me now. From random quotes that folks say in the office to the boots that all the neko-kids wear in SecondLife. It's been awhile since a movie has griped me and grabbed my full attention like that. Usually I knit when we rent movies, but I didn't want to miss a single thing.
I don't know that I have any desire to watch the second and third (I know they are the suk). But I might just have to pick this one up on DVD for myself.
