...so much for genocide and the revolution. Okay, let's discuss _The Matrix_.

Piss-poor script. Aspirations way WAY higher than the acting, writing, or plot could even come close to. Cheap escapist pop psychology.

Actually, it has more. Do you know how bad "your average action movie" is? _The Matrix_ was one of the most visually stunning movies I've ever seen. I loved watching it. So in that sense it's useful, but the fact that it tried to "open the minds" of movie-goers through such cheap, cliched devices just pissed me off.
