    any matrix fans?

    I was a huge fan of the original matrix, and when you watch all three togethor it turns out to be quite bad as$. Have any of you read these essays on the second two in the series?

    pretty interesting, i read them both, probably going to read them again, its is very insightful. Normally im not a believer in authors putting things in their writings to show a certain type of symbolism, but it stands out in the matrix series that the two brothers intended there to be some religion type thing going on.

    I only liked certain scenes. I also liked the concept. It was oozing with religious undertones.

    I think the underline meaning behind the matrix is the life of Jesus. Birth, Life, and Death.

    if you read the essays i gave in the link they guy shows how it there are parts from many religions. its too bad no one will ever fully understand it except the brothers.
