The Weekly Stuff Podcast #409 – Reviewing THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS
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.
For the final Weekly Stuff Podcast of 2021, we are reviewing Lana Wachowski’s The Matrix Resurrections, the new entry in the Matrix franchise coming a whole 18 years after Reloaded and Revolutions landed in 2003. We did full in-depth revisitations of the original Matrix trilogy on episodes 498, 401, and 402, and this discussion is a great follow-up on those conversations, as we dive deep with this ambitious, challenging sequel that sees Wachowski updating the Matrix – the world and the characters, but also the franchise itself and its many eclectic themes – for a world that’s changed an awful lot in the last 20 years. Sean and Jonathan disagree on exactly how effective the film is on its own terms, but we’re in complete harmony on it being an interesting, passionate idea that’s more than worthy of spending a few hours discussing.
Thanks so much for listening throughout 2021, and we look forward to seeing you all in the 2022 for a whole new year of The Weekly Stuff Podcast!
