Flim Weakly Review- The Matrix: 20th Anniversararary
Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it’s wrong. The Matrix cannot be truth, because it’s made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t know who Jean Luc Godard is, or what 24 frames have to do with it, as frames are usually found in Asda, for pictures and photos to sit in.
Although, actually, films are made of pictures, aren’t they? So maybe that’s what he meant, in which case, he’s very clever, even if he’s from somewhere that isn’t where I’m from.
So, what, in fact, is a film?
Well, it’s a thing you go to see when it’s too early to see it on tv. It even comes out before the dvd. And it costs three times as much as watching it for free, which is really stupid. Unless it has nudity in it.
But not every film does.
Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.
Welcome to FLIM WEAKLY.
This week I was told that this film just turned old.
Bill and Ted’s Keanu Reeves goes a bit Tron when a man in a leather coat gives him some drugs that make him see inside computer things. This happened to me once, in a community center, but that guy was a nonce.
Anyway, Keanu makes air go wobbly and fights a dude that looks like an attorney but is, in fact, an elf from those Rings movies, but he’s gone bad.
Some fighting of bodies and a bit with a helicopter happen and there are more spinny bits than an orgy at a carnival (which I’ve never seen, but think about a lot) before Keanu sorts out the hard drive and sees green shit.
Marks out of 10….
