The Matrix was released during my freshman year of college, and I remember some people being BLOWN AWAY by it. I remember enjoying it at the time, though the premise was something I picked up in my high school philosophy class.
I neglected to see the second and third installments.
Mike and I watched it this weekend, and... I don't think that it's aged well. The first movie was fine, I guess, though it had been a while since I had experienced the "acting" of Keanu Reeves.
Bu then, The Matrix Reloaded started. Oh my God.
Needless to say, it was completely retarded and we chose a blank screen over it.
