Right now I watching Steven Seagal and DMX in Exit Wounds, and the movie is slowly growing in my estimations. When I first got it, I liked it but it was so-so, now I like it more every time that I watch it.

This morning I broke out My Fair Lady with Audrey Hepburn & Rex Harrison, and I’ll take that up later. Since it’s been growing on me too.

I watched The Godfather in a theatre when it first came out, and it was a hard hitter. If I find a DVD of it I will get it.
I have Schindler’s List, and The Fugitive, and Dances with Wolves, et al. I have a load of VHS and DVD’s.

One is a classic "Orwellian-esque government needs a reckoning" flick. (V)
The other (Matrix) has two obvious layers at play. One being a techy sci-fi element about a dystopian world. The other, a philosophical story about how people seek their purpose in life and how easily they can slip into a controlling structure.
There are many other layers to unpeel, but they are subtle and more fun to find on one's own.

If you only watch the first Matrix movie, that can honestly be enough. But if you want the full story, it's actually a trilogy. There's a new one in the works now as well. Not sure how good it will be, but we'll see.
The first one is by far the best.

Perhaps it seems to me, but after the books (1968-1997) of Carlos Castaneda, I have all the other books and films of the cyberpunk type cause a resistant feeling deja vu.
