Episode 130: The Matrix Reloaded (2003)

Welcome, dudes, to another of our, like, “Leave ‘Em Wanting More” . . . thing.  ‘cuz we’re talking about, y’know, sequels and stuff . . . so, like, you ever think that maybe we’re all living in, sort of a big computer game or whatever? And we don’t, like, even know it and junk? Yeah . . . yeah . . . us too . . . and, like, did you ever want a really involved explanation of why all this is happening and like have guys make what seems like a cool idea pretty much . . . what’s the word . . . incomprehensible? Yeah, us too! Whoa . . . is that a coincidence, or some kind of conspiracy, dude? Whoa.
Yes, we all liked the original Matrix (well, for the purposes of this paragraph, let’s assume we all did).  But what happens when a sequel comes out with more fights, more action and what everyone REALLY wanted: lots more vague and confusing explanations for what happened in the first movie! Yeah! Because THAT’S what people wanted in the follow-up to a visually remarkable kick-ass action movie: more exposition! Heaps more! Do we get that in this movie? How much? Does it help? Does it make sense? Despite all our rage, are we still just rats in a cage? Tune in to find out the answers, except probably for that last one.

  1. Hi –
    Mike, just so you know, you DID travel on the 101 Freeway in L.A. Many times. It’s the one closest to my house. You also traveled on the 5, the 405 and the 134. You did NOT travel on the 505, as it does not exist.

    As for things to sell – T-SHIRTS!!!!!

    Your Los Angeles emissary and sister

    1. All California highways look the same to me; like parking lots! Zing! So we might open this question up to the other listeners, but if we did do t-shirts, what would you want to see on them? Thanks for listening!

      1. Far be it for me to refuse a severed horse head, but maybe just the show’s logo would be fine now. 🙂

        1. I need to update the logo; I don’t look like that any more! But there are ways to make a t-shirt available if someone wanted it at no cost to us. Perhaps we’ll look into it. Thanks, Vince!

  2. I laughed so hard at Max’s interpretation of Bella from Twilight, and her dull character being a “choice”.
