Fun with Franchises: The Matrix (1999), Part VI — “Just Go Ahead, Jump Into a Guy”

We continue with another entry in our Fun with Franchises series. This week’s film is The Matrix.

Fun with Franchises is a series born out of my friend Colin and I realizing how much fun it was for the two of us to watch the same movie separately and then share our reactions. We started by watching all of the James Bond movies, for the purposes of ranking them for the blog. I brought him in because he was much more of a Bond expert than I was at the time, and I felt his perspective would liven things up. He would be the color commentator to my play-by-play man.

We soon discovered that, by watching the movies separately and then putting everything we said together in the same place, hilarity ensued. We each brought in our own observations, not knowing what the other would say, and then reacted to what the other said. And we loved every minute of it.

We had so much fun, we figured we had to do it again. So we graduated from a single franchise, to all franchises. If you’re gonna have fun with franchises, it wouldn’t be right if you didn’t franchise it. Season 1 included the Harry Potter movies, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Twilight (which neither of us had seen before we watched them for the articles) and Pirates of the Caribbean. All of those articles can be read on the Fun with Franchises page.

Also, just so we’re clear, this is all for parody. We’re just messing with them because we love them. (Well… Twilight…) We’re watching movies we enjoy and are simply having some fun with them.

Right now, we’re doing the Matrix franchise, and today is the sixth and final part of The Matrix.

The Matrix - Title Card

We begin Part VI, with them not yet being out.

The Matrix - 2412

The great thing about these scenes is that they have one establishing shot, and that’s all you need to see in order to mentally recreate the rest of the entire sequence in your head.

The Matrix - 2413

The Matrix - 2414

My future.

Colin:

It’s hard, looking at your future.

It actually gets easier.

The Matrix - 2415

Colin:

He’s boozing. That’s why.

Shouldn’t we all know how this is going to go? Why do they just glance at the dude and keep going?

The Matrix - 2416

Colin:

That’s an open subway station in the middle of the city in the middle of the day. Where is everyone? I love this about this franchise. No people anywhere.

The Matrix - 2417

“You first, Morpheus.”

The Matrix - 2418

The Matrix - 2419

The Matrix - 2420

The Matrix - 2421

The Matrix - 2422

The Matrix - 2423

The Matrix - 2424

The Matrix - 2425

Should I even bother to ask how that works?

The Matrix - 2426

The Matrix - 2427

The Matrix - 2428

“Neo, I’m gonna tell you something.”

Well maybe tell him after you get out.

Colin:

This seems like a private conversation. Maybe have it after you get out? When you aren’t in danger or being monitored? It’s purely because of this conversation that he gets stuck here and dies.

The Matrix - 2429

The Matrix - 2430

Keanu looks at a ringing phone.

The Matrix - 2431

Real smart. Safety — this conversation.

You have chosen… poorly.

“But I’m afraid of what it could mean if I do.”

So many reasons to shut the fuck up right now. So many.

The Matrix - 2432

“Everything the Oracle has told me has come true. Everything but this.”

The Matrix - 2433

The Matrix - 2434

The Matrix - 2435

The Matrix - 2436

The Matrix - 2437

The Matrix - 2438

And now you decide to pick up the phone? Either tell him or don’t do this at all. What the fuck was the purpose of that?

The Matrix - 2439

Interesting how Agent Smith has the same suit lining that Keanu had earlier in the movie, in his office.

The Matrix - 2440

The Matrix - 2441

The Matrix - 2442

The Matrix - 2443

The Matrix - 2444

The Matrix - 2445

That’s a great shot. The subtle rack focus. I never really noticed it because it lasts a split second, but that’s great.

The Matrix - 2446

The Matrix - 2447

Colin:

Oh, this is where shit gets REALLY good.

Shame that phone booths aren’t a thing anymore.

The Matrix - 2448

“Neo!”

The Matrix - 2449

“What the hell just happened?”

“An Agent. You have to send me back.”

“I can’t.”

The Matrix - 2450

The Matrix - 2451

“Mr. Anderson.”

The Matrix - 2452

The Matrix - 2453

The Matrix - 2454

“Run, Neo, run.”

What the fuck are you whispering for?

The Matrix - 2455

The Matrix - 2456

OH YEAH!

The Matrix - 2457

“What is he doing?”

“He’s beginning to believe.”

The Matrix - 2458

The Matrix - 2459

The Matrix - 2460

The Matrix - 2461

*crack* 

The Matrix - 2462

Ha ha. Somebody had to let that paper go.

The Matrix - 2463

Colin:

IT’S A WESTERN YOU GUYS

The Matrix - 2464

The Matrix - 2465

The Matrix - 2466

The Matrix - 2467

The Matrix - 2468

The Matrix - 2469

The Matrix - 2470

The Matrix - 2471

The Matrix - 2472

The Matrix - 2473

Colin:

Magic nonsense.

The Matrix - 2474

The Matrix - 2475

The Matrix - 2476

The Matrix - 2477

The Matrix - 2478

The Matrix - 2479

The Matrix - 2480

The Matrix - 2481

“You’re empty.”

The Matrix - 2482

“So are you.” 

Well let’s not pretend like that was some badass revelation. You can SEE the empty clips.

Colin:

They both know how to count.

The Matrix - 2483

The Matrix - 2484

Well shit… this is awkward.

The Matrix - 2485

The Matrix - 2486

The Matrix - 2487

The Matrix - 2488

The Matrix - 2489

That’s what Brian Boitano would do.

The Matrix - 2490

The Matrix - 2491

The Matrix - 2492

The Matrix - 2493

You can still use ‘em as clubs!

The Matrix - 2494

Oh yeah… he’s just getting loose.

Colin:

I think of this every time I crack my neck. Probably a good 5 times a day.

I was gonna say the same thing. Except with masturbating.

The Matrix - 2495

The Matrix - 2496

The Matrix - 2497

The Matrix - 2498

The Matrix - 2499

The Matrix - 2500

That face.

The Matrix - 2501

The Matrix - 2502

The Matrix - 2503

You can see where that thing is designed to break.

Not that I have a problem with it at all. I love practical effects. Just, pointing it out.

The Matrix - 2504

The Matrix - 2505

The Matrix - 2506

The Matrix - 2507

Tensing up the chest. Way to not feel it.

This is how Harry Houdini would have not died.

The Matrix - 2508

The Matrix - 2509

The Matrix - 2510

The Matrix - 2511

Didn’t break the glasses!

The Matrix - 2512

The Matrix - 2513

The Matrix - 2514

That did.

Do you know how many pairs this motherfucker has to go through in a month? Them shit’s Versace.

The Matrix - 2515

The Matrix - 2516

“I’m gonna enjoy watching you die, Mr. Anderson.”

He will. In three consecutive movies.

Colin:

There’s something very charming about how he insists on calling him “Mr. Anderson.” It’s dehumanizing. Which is perfect.

The Matrix - 2517

The Matrix - 2518

The Matrix - 2519

The Matrix - 2520

The Matrix - 2521

The Matrix - 2522

The Matrix - 2523

COMBO!

Colin:

There was power behind that punch.

I like that there’s graffiti on the walls. This place isn’t as sterile as the rest of the franchise.

Only question — who put it there? We don’t ever see people live here. There’s a weird disconnect about this being an ordered system, and then there being shit like this in the train stations. Yet no one ever takes the train stations. I don’t know what the hell we’re supposed to believe.

The Matrix - 2524

The Matrix - 2525

The Matrix - 2526

The Matrix - 2527

The Matrix - 2528

The Matrix - 2529

The Matrix - 2530

The Matrix - 2531

The Matrix - 2532

The Matrix - 2533

The Matrix - 2534

The Matrix - 2535

The Matrix - 2536

Smith knows his way around a headbutt by now.

The Matrix - 2537

The Matrix - 2538

The Matrix - 2539

The Matrix - 2540

The Matrix - 2541

The Matrix - 2542

The Matrix - 2543

The Matrix - 2544

And the kidney punch!

The Matrix - 2545

The triple kidney punch, at that.

Colin:

KIDNEY PUNCHES!

The Matrix - 2546

Oh, well now you’re just showing off.

The Matrix - 2547

The Matrix - 2548

The Matrix - 2549

Anything you can do, I can do better.

The Matrix - 2550

The Matrix - 2551

The Matrix - 2552

The Matrix - 2553

Lefty!

The Matrix - 2554

That was basically a Force push.

The Matrix - 2555

Also, does nobody live here?

The Matrix - 2556

The Matrix - 2557

Where’s Tank with the cloth now?

The Matrix - 2558

I think it’s Lupus.

The Matrix - 2559

What did you do that for? You only have one shirt.

The Matrix - 2560

Colin:

Wipe yourself off. 

This looks so much dumber without the uplifting score behind it.

Also, that cloth is white. What the hell did you rip?

The Matrix - 2561

The Matrix - 2562

This reminds me of that moment in Fight Club where he smiles during the board meeting and has blood all over his gums.

The Matrix - 2563

The Matrix - 2564

The Matrix - 2565

The Matrix - 2566

Colin:

What is that, the dusty stance?

The Matrix - 2567

The Matrix - 2568

The Matrix - 2569

Wouldn’t it be great if he just gave him the finger right now?

The Matrix - 2570

I mean, he gives him the finger, and Smith gives him his phone call. That’s basically what this scene is about.

The Matrix - 2571

Also, where are the other agents? How long does it take to call in a sentinel strike? Is it because there really is nobody that lives here that they can’t just show up? Because, we’re only like two blocks from a MILITARY CONTROLLED BUILDING. I’m sure you got guys that can mobilize by now.

The Matrix - 2572

The Matrix - 2573

Nice punch.

The Matrix - 2574

The Matrix - 2575

Facial expressions.

The Matrix - 2576

The Matrix - 2577

The Matrix - 2578

NICE right hook.

The Matrix - 2579

The Matrix - 2580

The Matrix - 2581

The Matrix - 2582

The Matrix - 2583

The Matrix - 2584

The Matrix - 2585

The Matrix - 2586

The Matrix - 2587

Colin:

The little fingers to the throat bit is my favorite part of this fight. It looks like it belongs in The Three Stooges or something. Totally slapstick.

He does leave himself open.

The best part about it is, we can all hear the noise he makes during this right now.

The Matrix - 2588

The Matrix - 2589

The Matrix - 2590

Right to the fucking head again.

The Matrix - 2591

The Matrix - 2592

The Matrix - 2593

The Matrix - 2594

The real moral of this scene is, you can stand up to them, but you still can’t take them.

The Matrix - 2595

The Matrix - 2596

The Matrix - 2598

The Matrix - 2599

Lot of throwing people into walls. I like it.

The Matrix - 2600

The Matrix - 2601

The Matrix - 2602

The Matrix - 2603

Bye, bye organs.

The Matrix - 2604

Imagine what it’s like when he bangs a chick.

The Matrix - 2605

The Matrix - 2606

The Matrix - 2607

The Matrix - 2608

The Matrix - 2609

The Matrix - 2610

The Matrix - 2611

Well there goes that ticket booth.

I guess this is a station they just skip over now?

The Matrix - 2612

The Matrix - 2613

“That’s right, motherfuckers.”

The Matrix - 2614

The Matrix - 2615

The Matrix - 2616

Colin:

More dragging by the leg.

The Matrix - 2617

The Matrix - 2618

The Matrix - 2619

The Matrix - 2620

The Matrix - 2621

The Matrix - 2622

The Matrix - 2623

That was actually about the right interval for a train. So at least they got that right.

The Matrix - 2624

“You hear that, Mr. Anderson?”

The Matrix - 2625

“That is the sound of inevitability.”

Colin:

Good lines. “InEVitability.” Elrond says a lot of stuff like that.

The Matrix - 2626

And… a train.

Who knew how important trains would be to Keanu Reeves in this franchise?

“That is the sound of your death.”

The Matrix - 2627

“Goodbye, Mr. Anderson.”

The Matrix - 2628

“My name. Is Neo.”

The Matrix - 2629

The Matrix - 2630

The Matrix - 2631

The Matrix - 2632

The Matrix - 2633

The Matrix - 2634

The Matrix - 2635

The Matrix - 2636

The Matrix - 2637

The Matrix - 2638

The Matrix - 2639

The Matrix - 2640

Colin:

Oh, Japan. :(

:)

The Matrix - 2641

The Matrix - 2642

Yeah, your feet weren’t that far back in the previous shot.

The Matrix - 2643

The Matrix - 2644

The Matrix - 2645

The Matrix - 2646

The Matrix - 2647

The Matrix - 2648

The Matrix - 2649

The Matrix - 2650

There are actually people on that train.

The Matrix - 2651

The Matrix - 2652

The Matrix - 2653

So, you did all that, but accomplished nothing except standing up for yourself.

The Matrix - 2654

“What happened?”

“I don’t know, I lost him.”

Well that’s probably not good.

The Matrix - 2655

And that’s probably not good.

The Matrix - 2656

Like this angle.

The Matrix - 2657

The Matrix - 2658

What else would it be?

Colin:

Sentinels! Didn’t the ship in the next one have a lot of guns? Can’t they do a Star Wars thing on the turrets?

Have we yet discussed how these things are basically the same as the sentinels in X-Men, just squids instead of robots?

“How long?”

“Five, maybe six minutes.”

The Matrix - 2659

“Tank, charge the EMP.”

The Matrix - 2660

“We can’t use that until he’s out.”

“I know, Trinity, don’t worry. He’s gonna make it.”

The Matrix - 2661

The Matrix - 2662

Yoink!

The Matrix - 2663

“Shit! That’s my phone!”

The Matrix - 2664

Colin:

Hah. Wall Street type. Asshole. Take their phones.

The Matrix - 2665

The Matrix - 2666

The Matrix - 2667

The Matrix - 2668

The Matrix - 2669

So, my question, before this scene really gets going… when an Agent switches to a person, and they don’t die, and the Agent switches to someone else… what happens to the previous person? Do they just wake up, like, “Oh man, what happened I blacked out. Where are my pants?”

The Matrix - 2670

“Mr. Wizard, get me the hell out of here.”

The Matrix - 2671

“Got a patch on an old exit. Wabash and Lake.”

The Matrix - 2672

The Matrix - 2673

The Matrix - 2674

Apparently whatever that place used to sell, now it’s only onions.

The Matrix - 2675

“Oh, shit.”

So I guess people just don’t live here at night? Or, in train stations?

The Matrix - 2676

The Matrix - 2677

Remember when there wouldn’t be this many people after this?

The Matrix - 2678

Each stand only sells one type of fruit or vegetable?

The Matrix - 2679

The Matrix - 2680

That chick in red just does not give a FUCK.

The Matrix - 2681

Look at her. Like, “Excuse me!”

The Matrix - 2682

The Matrix - 2683

Aww…. Little Asian girl just lost her mommy.

The Matrix - 2684

Colin:

Sucks when your Asian mammy turns into a creepy white dude with a gun.

See, you say Asian mammy, and I think of this.

The Matrix - 2685

Gallagher is the only one laughing at this.

The Matrix - 2686

Colin:

I would fail at this. So badly.

The Matrix - 2687

Look at that top hat!

The Matrix - 2688

Homeless people.

I think they killed them all after this.

Or Hugo Weaving assimilates them all.

Guiliani tried to do that.

The Matrix - 2689

The Matrix - 2690

“Uhh… help. Need a little help.”

The Matrix - 2691

The Matrix - 2692

“The door!”

HOW DID YOU NOT SEE THAT?!!

The Matrix - 2693

The Matrix - 2694

The Matrix - 2695

Good thing no one uses metal doors.

The Matrix - 2696

The Matrix - 2697

The Matrix - 2698

I love the way he turns corners in this building.

The Matrix - 2699

“The door on your left.”

The Matrix - 2700

The Matrix - 2701

“No, your other left.”

Colin:

Don’t know why, but we used to say that a lot in high school.

I always was just like, “How the fuck does he not know right from left?” Isn’t that just instinct? He says, “Left,” you go left. There should be no reason for you to go right in this scenario. It’s not like Tank fucked up. Keanu actually goes right first. 

The Matrix - 2702

The Matrix - 2703

The Matrix - 2704

The Matrix - 2705

The Matrix - 2706

The Matrix - 2707

Colin:

“No, don’t get up! Smells delicious! Dinner’s ready!”

“Hi, how you doing? Name’s Neo. I’m the One.”

The Matrix - 2708

The Matrix - 2709

The Matrix - 2710

This shot always amused the shit out of me. That old lesbian turned into Hugo Weaving.

The Matrix - 2711

The Matrix - 2712

The Matrix - 2713

Tally ho!

The Matrix - 2714

The Matrix - 2715

That’s a proper tally ho.

Colin:

There’s a tally ho.

That’s exactly how Ferris did too.

The Matrix - 2716

Thank god people are slobs in this place.

Is this how he helps his landlady carry out her garbage?

The Matrix - 2717

“Play Dirty, Drink Pure.”

The Matrix - 2718

The Matrix - 2719

The Matrix - 2720

The Matrix - 2721

“Here they come.”

Maybe because the ship has been in the same place all goddamn day. It hasn’t moved since Dozer put it there.

Colin:

Did maybe one of you wanna try driving to avoid them? Or does that fuck up the broadcast?

If they lose the signal, does Keanu die? Can Keanu die just because Time Warner fucks up? Because trust me, Time Warner fucks up a lot.

Can Keanu die if they forget the Wi-fi password?

Also:

The Matrix - 2722

The Matrix - 2723

The Matrix - 2724

The Matrix - 2725

The Matrix - 2726

The Matrix - 2727

The Matrix - 2728

The Matrix - 2729

“He’s going to make it.”

Sure… you’re just… preparing to kill him just in case.

The Matrix - 2730

The Matrix - 2731

And now the pan down makes sense.

The Matrix - 2732

They used to charge for TV?

The Matrix - 2733

Isn’t it nice though that we end where we begin? It’s because time is a flat circle.

The Matrix - 2734

The Matrix - 2735

See? He knows where he’s going.

This makes him showing up in the room perfectly logical.

That’s the beauty of good plotting. You put so much interesting stuff in between the set up and payoff, the payoff actually is a nice moment.

The Matrix - 2736

“The fire escape at the end of the alley. Room 303.”

The Matrix - 2737

The Matrix - 2738

The Matrix - 2739

The Matrix - 2740

The Matrix - 2741

The Matrix - 2742

The Matrix - 2743

The Matrix - 2744

The Matrix - 2745

The Matrix - 2746

The Matrix - 2747

The Matrix - 2748

The Matrix - 2749

See, now, after this, how does your ship get anywhere, even if you do survive?

The Matrix - 2750

“Where the fuck is the beer?”

Colin:

Things with big appendages and lots of little appendages creep me out.

Just like Lana Turner.

The Matrix - 2751

The Matrix - 2752

Colin:

Why don’t they just bomb it? We see later that they have bombs. 

The Matrix - 2753

Colin:

This is tense, though. Those things are inside? Now it’s over.

The Matrix - 2754

The Matrix - 2755

The Matrix - 2756

The Matrix - 2757

End of the line.

Colin:

Ruh roh, Raggy.

The Matrix - 2758

The Matrix - 2759

The Matrix - 2760

The Matrix - 2761

The Matrix - 2762

He looks like he’s about to pull a Tim Curry. “You shot me… and bad!”

Colin:

“Ahhh my chest! My bloody chest! My…outfit.”

The Matrix - 2763

The Matrix - 2764

The Matrix - 2765

The Matrix - 2766

The Matrix - 2767

The Matrix - 2768

The Matrix - 2769

Colin:

Nice spatter on the wall before he gets shot the second time. And then, REALLY nice spatter on the wall now.

The Matrix - 2770

The Matrix - 2771

The Matrix - 2772

Nah bitch, shoot me point blank twice… that ain’t nothing.

The Matrix - 2773

The Matrix - 2774

Yeah… but another nine times… that might do it.

Colin:

COOOOLD BLOOOODED

The Matrix - 2775

The Matrix - 2776

The Matrix - 2777

The Matrix - 2778

The Matrix - 2779

The Matrix - 2780

The Matrix - 2781

The Matrix - 2782

Where’s your messiah now?

The Matrix - 2783

The Matrix - 2784

“Check him.”

The Matrix - 2785

Colin:

Smith doesn’t kneel down to check people’s vitals. That’s this schmuck’s job. Come to think of it, he was doing the serum earlier, too. Is he the medical agent?

The Matrix - 2786

“He’s gone.”

The Matrix - 2787

“Goodbye, Mr. Anderson.”

The Matrix - 2788

Colin:

So, maybe hit that EMP now.

The Matrix - 2789

The Matrix - 2790

The Matrix - 2791

The Matrix - 2792

“Neo…”

I love that. Ignore the giant laser beams, and then say what you have to say.

The Matrix - 2793

“I’m not afraid anymore.”

Were you afraid before?

The Matrix - 2794

Oh, right… of this.

“The Oracle told me that I would fall in love, and that that man, the man that I loved, would be The One.”

The Matrix - 2795

“So you see, you can’t be dead. You can’t be.”

No… he can be dead. That was like twelve bullets point blank to the chest.

Also, “so you see.” What is this, a presentation?

The Matrix - 2796

“Because I love you.”

The Matrix - 2797

“I’m in live with you, therefore, vis-a-vis, you ain’t dead.”

Perfect logic.

The Matrix - 2798

Colin:

Kissing a dead guy. Ew.

WHY DIDN’T YOU DO THIS TO MOUSE?!

The Matrix - 2799

THEY EVEN WORKED IN THE OMINOUS THUNDERCLAP

The Matrix - 2800

Also, what a great name for a band. Ominous Thunderclap.

The Matrix - 2801

“You hear me?”

Nah, he’s pretty dead.

“I love you.”

So is this what he was waiting for? Love?

The Matrix - 2802

Colin:

Also, he’s been properly dead for a good minute or so, right? That’s okay, though. Brain damage suits Neo.

The Matrix - 2803

The Matrix - 2804

“Now get up!”

That’s about right. Woman tells you she loves you, then, “Do shit!”

The Matrix - 2805

The Matrix - 2806

The Matrix - 2807

Zombie Jesus.

The Matrix - 2808

“No.”

The Matrix - 2809

The Matrix - 2810

The Matrix - 2811

The Matrix - 2812

The Matrix - 2813

The Matrix - 2814

The Matrix - 2815

The Matrix - 2816

Colin:

Ripply bullets.

The Matrix - 2817

The Matrix - 2818

The Matrix - 2819

The Matrix - 2820

The Matrix - 2821

The Matrix - 2822

The Matrix - 2823

The Matrix - 2824

KEANU LOOKS AT INANIMATE OBJECTS.

The Matrix - 2825

The Matrix - 2826

The Matrix - 2827

The Matrix - 2828

The Matrix - 2829

The Matrix - 2830

Colin:

“Hm. So this is a bullet, huh? I think I shall drop you on the floor. Yes, that’s right. Follow your friend.”

The Matrix - 2831

The Matrix - 2832

The Matrix - 2833

“He is The One.”

Well now you gotta clean up dead squid things. And Cypher’s not even there to make do it.

So he gets out just in time for them to blow the EMP. And now they have pet Squidies. 

The Matrix - 2914

The Matrix - 2915

The Matrix - 2916

The Matrix - 2917

Colin:

Making out in the chair. Cause everyone else is dead and Tank and Morpheus are probably making out in one of their rooms.

The Matrix - 2918

And that’s… almost the end of the movie.

The Matrix - 2919

“I know you’re out there.”

The Matrix - 2920

He’s talking to Smith, right?

Colin:

Who’s he talking to?

The Matrix - 2921

“I can feel you, now.”

The Matrix - 2922

“I know that you’re afraid.”

The Matrix - 2923

“You’re afraid of us.”

The Matrix - 2924

“You’re afraid of change.”

The Matrix - 2925

“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 you how it’s going to begin.”

The Matrix - 2926

“I’m going to hang up this phone, and then I’m going to show these people what you don’t want them to see.”

The Matrix - 2927

“I’m going to show them a world without you.”

The Matrix - 2928

“A world without rules and controls. Without borders or boundaries.”

The Matrix - 2929

“A world where anything is possible.”

Colin:

He’s gonna show them the real world. Which is actually kinda awful, and it DOES have rules and boundaries.

The Matrix - 2936

“Where we go from there, is a choice I leave to you.”

The Matrix - 2937

KEANU LOOKS AT INANIMATE OBJECTS

Colin:

Yeah, look at the phone before you hang it up. That’s not weird.

The Matrix - 2938

The Matrix - 2939

YEAH! RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE(S)!

Colin:

Good song choice, though. If The Matrix is gonna go with any one band, it’s probably Rage Against the Machine.

The Matrix - 2940

Colin:

Make this black and white and tell me that blonde on the right doesn’t look like an extra out of His Girl Friday.

And the woman on the left looks like an extra out of Schindler’s List.
