There are alot of Matrix fans in these forums so I thought I would make this a gatthering place for all the fans to meet and discuss The Matrix.

Heres some stuff for you:

Maps:

Matrix Dojo Map: http://www.jedioutcastmaps.com/file.php?id=331
Matrix Lobby Map: http://www.jedioutcastmaps.com/file.php?id=378
Matrix Subway Showdown: http://www.jedioutcastmaps.com/file.php?id=402 (includes Agent Skin)
Matrix Subway Station beta http://www.jk2files.com/file.info?ID=3999&sid=6bf2bcdd98ac563d48a4ead18dd99106

Matrix Quotes:

Morpheus: "What is real? How do you define real? If you're talking about your senses, what you feel, taste, smell, or see, then all you're talking about are electrical signals interpreted by your brain."

Morpheus: Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream, Neo? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?


Oracle: I would tell you to sit down, but you won't. And don't worry about the vase.
Thomas "Neo" Anderson: What vase? [Neo knocks a vase over, which shatters on the ground.]
Oracle: That vase.
Thomas "Neo" Anderson: I'm sorry--
Oracle: I said, don't worry about it. I'll have one of my kids fix it.
Thomas "Neo" Anderson: How did you know I was going to break it?
Oracle: Oh, what will really bake your noodle later is, would you still have broken it if I hadn't said anything to you?


Oracle: You're a nice boy. I can see why she likes you.
Thomas "Neo" Anderson: Who?
Oracle: Not too bright, though.


Agent Smith: Do you hear that, Mr. Anderson? It's the sound of inevitability.


Cypher: I know what you're thinking, 'cause I'm thinking the exact same thing. Actually, I've been thinking it since I got here: Why didn't I take the BLUE pill?


Morpheus: Stop trying to hit me, and hit me!


Agent Smith: Never send a human to do a machine's job.


Neo Are you telling me I can dodge bullets?
Morpheus No. What I'm telling you, Neo, is that when you're ready, you won't have to.


Neo: *The* Trinity? Who cracked the IRS code?
Trinity: That was a long time ago.
Neo: Jesus...
Trinity: What?
Neo: I just thought... you were a guy.
Trinity: Most guys do.


Morpheus The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.


Tank: So what do you need? Besides a miracle.
Neo: Guns. Lots of guns.

Matrix Trivia:

Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity) played Liz Teel in the TV series "Matrix" (1993).

When the martial arts programming menu flashes across the computer screen, "drunken boxing" is one of the skills listed.

The glyphs on the computer screens, with the exception of the call traces, consists of reversed letters, numbers, and Japanese katakana characters.

All of the references to street corners (i.e. Wells and Lake) are real intersections in Chicago, USA, the Wachowski brothers' hometown. The subway train has signs for "Loop," another Chicago reference. The film however is quite obviously not set in Chicago.

As Neo runs through the old lady's apartment near the end of the film, we see an image on the TV of a menacing man in a black suit coat. The image is that of one of the Number 2's from the TV show "The Prisoner" (1967).

When Neo is calling to get extracted from the Matrix, he says, "Mr. Wizard get me the hell out of here," a reference to the 1960's cartoon Tooter Turtle. Each episode, Tooter would yearn to be something he wasn't and have his friend Mr. Wizard (a lizard) wave his magic wand and make him an astronaut or a scientist or whatever. Inevitably, Tooter would quickly get himself into trouble and call out "Help Mr.Wizard," and the lizard would intone "Drizzle, drazzle, druzzle, drome, time for this one to come home." Tooter would be transported back to his old self and be chided by Mr. Wizard to "be happy with what you are."

Neo hides his money in a book titled "Simulacra and Simulation," an actual work of critical theory that deals with issues of what is "real" and what is "simulation or simulacra." When Neo opens the book, he opens to the chapter, "On Nihilism."

Check out the room numbers for Trinity and Neo. When the cops bust in on Trinity in the opening scene the number is 303 ("trinity," 3) and since Neo is The One the number of his apartment is 101. Also, the room with Trinity and the cops in the beginning of the movie, is also the same room, in the same hotel, where Neo confronts Agent Smith at the end of the movie.

Coincidentally (or not), M
atrix, Trinity, Morpheus, 303 and 101 are all makes and/or models of music synthesizer.

Almost every line spoken by Neo's "customer" in the beginning of the film ("You're my savior," "You don't exist," etc.) is foreshadowing.

When Neo is meeting with the Oracle, the music playing in the background in her apartment is Duke Ellington's "I'm Beginning to See the Light," a reference to Neo's continued awakening.

In the Oracle's waiting room, the television is showing Night of the Lepus (1972).

Names of people and objects have historical significance, all related to dreams and illusions. For example, "Morpheus" (film character) was named for the Greek god of sleep and dreams; and "Nebuchadnezzar" (hovercraft in film) was a biblical king who was visited by troubling dreams.

Neo is an anagram for One.

Anderson means "Son of Man," as Jesus is often called.

Hey, cool, a Matrix thread!:D Thanks lexx:D

I love the Matrix...in fact, you could say any line in the film and I could say which line comes after...I know the whole script...

Not that that matters or anything...

Anyway, Matrix, great :D I'll post back with something interesting later...

I agree completly. What else can you see? Neo is now officially a god of the matrix. He can rip it apart without even lifting his hand. Oh, yeah, that's gonna make a fun story.

The only way I can see the Matrix continue is if they kill off Trinity. Think about it. Up until now, Neo (played by the worst actor ever.) has no motivation whatsoever to fight the matrix. Yeah, he's told it's bad. Wow. Show me a tropical fruit, and i'll show you a c0cksucker from the bahamas. Wait, no. Anyway, there's no way to continue the storyline. It's over. Finished. Leave it to the imagination of the fans. Like George Lucas shoulda done with Star Wars. Episode 1? My god man, are you daft?

omg Azrael, if you don't wanna see a sequel, don't watch the one that is ALREADY IN PRODUCTION! I for one am gonna park my butt outside the cinema the day b4 it is released.

I remember after seeing the end of The Matrix, I wanted more. I wanted to see what Neo does and I wanted to see the machines overthrown and I wanted to see Zion and more of the Real World. I am sooooo glad that sequels are being made and I can't wait for them to be released.

more, more, gimme more! :D

If you think that the director and screenwriters should leave it up to the fans imagination, then do you also agree that Lucasfilm should have stopped Star Wars production after A New Hope? no, becasue the story has a lot more to expand on.

The matrix sequels will likely expand on Neo finding a way to destroy the matrix and free his people. Neo is not the "God of the matrix". You can delete a virus, but it will not delete the source. If he destorys the Matrix, then he will kill every one in it. It is obviously not his objective. Reloaded will tell the story of Zion struggling to survive, Neo finding new recuits to take out of the matix, and finding a way to free the peope in the matix. Revolutions will likely tell of Neo and his crew destroying the matix and removing the machines from earth.

Anyway....

Great thread Lexx! Very interesting trivia...

I ehard they are working on The Matrix II, and The Matrix III is also in the works.

Yes, they are working on them at the same time, The Matrix Reloaded will come out in May 2003, and Revolutions will come out the same year (As Anakin would say "Yippie!!!!") in the Fall.

The Matrix Reloaded is due for release on May 15 2003 closely followed by The Matrix Revolutions 3 months after! I don't think putting them so close together is a good idea, I would have preffered a longer gap to keep up the suspence, what about you?

when you're waiting for the matrix, 3 months is way too long:D

Reb Starblazer
07-23-2002, 12:14 AM
Yea, when I said earlier that I liked how they were promoted, that is what I was talking about, Revolutions coming out 3 months after Reloaded. The reason why it's only three months is cause Reloaded supposedly ends in a cliffhanger. It just ends. Like when you're watching T.V. and a commercial break happens right after or before something important. Same thing. Except it's a 3 month break instead of 3 minutes. Trust me, it should prove to be a very long 3 months:)

07-23-2002, 12:44 AM
I like how Matrix 2 + 3 are coming out close together, but I do not think it is a good idea marketing wise.

Movies need a long time (1 year +) between sequels to get popular. Between the movies, people usally make mocks/parodys and people talk about it a lot. I remember when the matrix came out, everyone was talking about. In fact, I couldn't get my friend to shut up about it :) Anyway, the fact is: the longer the gap between sequels, the more popularity it gets so that the next movie will make more money. Thats what I think anyway....


But I still think it's great that we will not have to wait a long time between Reloaded and Revolutions :D

Now a matrix mod for JK2 would be so much cooler than a DBZ mod. You could do some sweet stuff with the slowmo effects of the JK2 engine.

BTW I think the 3-5 month short gap between the two films is the best amount of time. It's short enough to survive thru a cliffhanger but long enough to let the movie sink in. AND hollywood still gets their money. The star wars movies and the LOTR are just taking too long. :P Episode III is going to kick some serious ass.

07-30-2002, 06:32 AM
its for sure that the matrix is the greatest movie ever.

i cant wait for the matrix reloaded to come out!!!

Ok peep this. At first I was pissed because The Matrix totally stole all of the thunder from The Phantom Menace when it was released, and I personnally hate Keanu Reeves(except for Bill and Ted Movies) so I was very sceptical about this movie. Then for no reason whatsover one of my realatives gave me the tape of The Matrix for Christmas. At first I thought it was just to spite me because I love Star Wars so much, but then I watched it and I have to say I was totally blown away. Since then I have seen it several times, I bought the DVD and I think this movie is a landmark to all Sci-Fi films. This movie is fun, intelligent, sexy and cool all at the same time. I thought Reeves was perfect in this film as Neo, there is not one thing I would ever change about this film. I look forward to sequals and also I love it when people and fans combine elements of The Matrix and Star Wars together to make wonderful Fan Films like "Sparring Program". Lexx I really hope you hear me on this one. I absolutely love the Matrix for many different reasons, but I just wanted express my opinion!

No, the Matrix chronicles the war between humanity and the machines. The story's over when the war is.

Here's my own little quote...

Morpheus: "We are at war. What if I told you that tomorrow, the war could be over?"

Darth Groovy

leXX
07-30-2002, 08:14 AM
I hear ya Darth Groovy ;)

I simply can't wait till Matrix Reloaded, the antisipation is killing me. I personally believe Reloaded and Revolutions will be the most succesful films of all time making the trilogy the best selling ever, even surpasing SW OT in gross sales figures! I don't think the merchandise will come close to SW though. I have seen a lot of storyboard images of the new characters, effects etc and it is looking very very very good indeed. :D

Another of my favourites quotes, some might remember it used to be in my signature:

"I think we can handle one little girl, I sent two units, they're bringing her down now."

"No lieutenant, you're men are already dead."

Darklighter
07-30-2002, 08:28 AM
You're definitely right Lexx:) The Matrix generated so much publicity and media attention - it really was a modern film phenomonon, there hadn't ever been such and intricate use of story plotting and visual effects (Bullet time! Yeah!!!:D )

There has been so much hype building up ever since the rumour of a sequel was anounced. It really will be the biggest grossing film...ever.

There, that was quite dramatic wasn't it?:D

Clem
07-30-2002, 10:29 AM
and there wasnt hype for TPM??

lol sure the matrix is a great film .... but if the sequel is flawed in any little way thats it ... all over

much as happened with TPM ... only the real star wars fans are left watching them now

and i still think the matrix should be a standalone film ... whatever happened to leaving the rest to ur imagination

neway i dunno y im arguing im sure ill like the new films

Darklighter
07-30-2002, 10:39 AM
You are right Clem, but The Matrix really was amazing. TPM had to live up to the reputation of the original trilogy: the most amazing films ever created, and absolute classics in their own right.

The Matrix is very different. It is a modern film for modern Sci-fi and action film fans. There is not a specific group of Matrix fans, the film is for action fim fans. They can't do anything wrong with it really. The film is just too cool:D

Pad
07-30-2002, 12:22 PM
the cool thing about the matrix is the hole idea. u know, what if it was true, that were nothing but a duracel battery?
also the kind of filming is new ( slowmo, changing angle,explosions,...) and that makes it so great.
by far the best movie and i can twait to see the sequels!!!

lets play a game:

state a quote and u tell where the quote in the movie was like:

=> "find them and destroy them" (easy1)

Clem
07-30-2002, 12:25 PM
it wont be as popular as the original

cos it cant be as groundbreaking

and all the mystery is lost

that was 1 of my fave things about the film ... trying to get my head round it

all thats gone now

fave scene: Subway fight where he straightens his fingers :)

or the whole lobby scene is pretty good 2

I can't remember exactly (flame me if you must), but I think morpheus was wielding some sort of katana in the trailer - I may have been mistaken though.

I have to agree that it will take a mirracle from God to make this movie as much of a surprise as the first one for three reasons:

1. The big revelation to Neo about babies as batteries has been revealed and will not surprise us anymore.

2. The bullet time special effect has been gummed to death in every action movie that has come out since the original Matrix Film so they will have to come up with something entirely different if they want to blow us away this time.

3. Too much of a good thing can be harmfull. Sometimes sequals can almost kill the original idea that most movies lay, I agree it should be a stand alone, however I will be in the theater when it comes out because I love movies with lots of Martial arts in them!

Dangit! Ok ok ok... NEO wields the friggin' katana :))

Anyhoo - I'm looking forward to the new movies as much as lexx 'n zee others!
The surprise factor may have been lost by now, but they'll never take away that eternal style which is: bullet-time and shades!

Other movies may have shamelessly copied the bullet-time trademark (although Woo *was* the first I reckon), but when the new Matrices (heh) come out they'll mop the floor and kick away all contenders in style! Amen!

Max Payne is a good game to get if you like that bullet-time type combat. Not to mention, there are tons of mods for it. Including a kickass Matrix mod.

ok matrix people can you answer my questions.

1. Why do the humans who go into the matrix go round shooting other humans and killing hoards of people. Doesnt it kill humans in the real world, and they are sposed to be fighting for them?

2.Why on earth do they keep going back into the matrix? its so dangerous in there!
They could just sit on their hovercraft with the lights off and noone would see them.
Why do they go to the matrix? what do they do?

and Clem, where is that unreal tournament matrix mod you were talking about? i cant find it!

What is the Matrix?

Throno-Denkai
07-31-2002, 07:04 PM
The best trivia question about Matrix is: "What is the Matrix?". But its a question that even the creator of the matrix dont know! Thats the only thing makes me sick about matrix, its pretty cool without this question!

Arkum
07-31-2002, 09:00 PM
The Matrix is a dream folded over your mind and eyes and body to simulate reality. But the "reality" we live in now is the Matrix. We feel it, smell it, see it, and hear it. We are actually born in the farms. We are slaves. The Matrix is there to cover up that reality with it's own "reality".


This is the Matrix.


It's really hard to explain. If you have no idea what I just said, do yourself a favor and just don't ask.

Firstly, to answer why they keep killing humans. It is because the Agents take over a humans body so it is unavoidable!

Secondly, to answer why keep going back into the Matrix. They go back in to get others out into the real world.

Thirdly, to answer what is the Matrix. Morpheus already answered that question in the film. "The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth."

Throno-Denkai

leXX
07-31-2002, 10:24 PM
Your not that stupid surely! are you? really? OMG :lol:

Let me explain.

The machines become too intelligent because the AI becomes too advanced. A war begins between the humans and the machines. Nuclear weapons block out the sun, energy becomes scarce. The machines win the war! Now they need energy to survive and they find the human body is the best source of energy. To keep the human body alive, the brain needs stimulation so the machines invent the Matrix. The Matrix keeps the humans alive by tapping into their brain an imaginary world which the humans believe is real. The first few attempts went wrong because the machines created a perfect world which the humans didn't accept. Finally they found the perfect balance, the world you live in now! Only by being untapped from the Matrix can you see the real world.

Arkum
07-31-2002, 11:45 PM

That pretty much sums it up

Third is the best part of the equasion. #3 makes you question the fact that we really don't know what's going on. I think that's what made the movie so big. Sure the killer cgi, the bullet time, the cast, and Neo's "whoa" are all cool, but it's the concept that send chills up our spines, if that's what chill's feel like. Get it?

The Matrix is a brilliant concept. Let's hope they stay true to form and not make lame sequels or bizarre prequels. :D

C'jais
08-01-2002, 06:49 AM
Don't worry chief, the sequels are gonna rock our world!

But the idea of using humans as batteries is quite shallow, even if the sun was blocked out - but that doesn't make it a bad movie.

And lexx, I believe Neo and his gang also killed "real people" in the matrix, simply because they were in their way and would kill *them* if they didn't defend themselves. That's quite paradoxal, seeing as they want to free them - but they also can't just walk right up to a man with an M4 and ask him to free his mind.

Have any of you seen the 13th floor? It's pretty much the same concept as The Matrix - but with a twist. And I believe the 13th floor was made before the matrix, but I could be wrong. See it if you like the concept of the matrix - although there's absolutely no gunfighting, shades or bullet-time in it.

leXX
08-01-2002, 10:29 AM
Ok, it's not like they are just killing innocent people. The people they kill also have guns and are shooting at them. When Trinity killed the police at the beginning, it was self defence, she's hardly gonna let herself get captured is she. When Neo and Trinity mash up the lobby, they are trying to free Morpheus. Who are they going to put first, some security guys shooting at them or Morpheus! The needs of the many outwiegh the needs fo the few. They are trying to save the world after all. A few people dying that get in there way is innevitable.

Darth-Nasty

Does robots planed it like: "Yo guys, lets give special powers to a human so he can kick our asses on the future, and there would be a little action on our stupid not makin any sense lives!", Well, i dont think it happened like this, so does any one has an answer for this?

leXX
08-01-2002, 02:34 PM
Morpheus explains all of it in the film if you listen carefully.

When the Matrix was first plugged in, one guy could see the code and awoke himself from it. He is the one that freed the others!

The oracle predicted there would be a chosen one! Why is there a chosen one? Silly question really...why not? It's just the way it is. There are always bugs in any system...Neo is a bug in the sytem!

Actually, they didn't.

The oracle did die(and she was going to play a major role in Matrix 3), and the directors said they they would change the scripe slightly so that it would make sense.

My guess, the oracle gets killed by agents in Matrix 2, and talks to Neo from the matrix code in Matrix 3, like her spirt is still in the code....

well i have 2 things to contribute to this thread...

1.) another forshadowing event that i dont think has been mentioned: when neo is with his boss, his boss says something allong the lines of "you believe the rules dont apply to you?" and later on, they dont!

2.) this sig i made, i got bored, and i had just dl'ed the matrix font, so i made this, took all of 30 seconds... but why not... and when i finished it, it made me think of lexx, gee, wonder why :D

can someone please tell me if this is the exact quote that neo says at the end of the movie, i got this from the 1997 script on matrix.com

Hi. It's me. I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I imagine you can also feel me. I know you're real proud of this world you've built, the way it works, all the nice little rules and such, but I've got some bad news. I've decided to make a few changes.

Sorry man, but that is completely wrong...

leXX
08-27-2002, 07:34 PM
This is the proper quote:

I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid... afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules or controls, borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you. ;)

and yes...the heroes are no more!

08-27-2002, 07:44 PM

movies often dont follow the scripts, as they edit and change stuffs during production. If you read it, you'll notice that the movie also deleted (combined?) several characters in the original script
