Everything that has a beginning has an end. Unless, of course, you work in Hollywood. The Matrix is the latest in a long line of franchises that has been resurrected, this time with the aptly named The Matrix Resurrections, the fourth outing into an environmentally devastated world where machines have come to dominate society, and people are kept placated and docile in a virtual universe enabled by a global, interconnected network. So, basically, our current world, except with slightly more cave orgies. So take your red pill, grab your sunglasses, strap on your finest leather outfit, and join us as we show you exactly how deep the rabbit hole goes. In this episode, we examine whether The Matrix Resurrections is a worthy successor to the boundary-pushing original trilogy, or just another system of control to distract audiences from the mundane reality of their day-to-day lives.
