The Weekly Stuff Podcast #402 – Revisiting THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS (2003)
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
We finish our journey through the original Matrix trilogy this week with 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions, following up on our discussion of the original in episode #398 and The Matrix Reloaded in last week’s #401. We have some minor points of disagreement here, but largely share the view that The Matrix went out on a rousing high note, with a focused and propulsive final installment that puts big ideas front and center, and sees them through to an extremely powerful ending. It’s a great discussion, and before all that, you’ll also hear Jonathan review the (very very very bad) Marvel movie Eternals, Sean talk a bit more about Persona 5 Royal, and hear about a weird impulse buy Sean made from Japan.
Enjoy! And come back next week (on Tuesday, instead of our usual Monday) as we mark the 20th anniversary of the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on November 16th!
