The Matrix in 3D Please

24 May 2012, 09:52

While on Google I found some articles dating back to the beginning of 2011. They spoke mainly about whether or not it was a good idea to convert The Matrix into 3D. For me it would be the greatest pleasure on earth to see the green Matric code whizzing past my head. There has to be no better experience in the cinema.

When one thinks about The Matrix and the unique style that it has one has to admit that The Matrix has been 3D even before 3D became popular again. It just seems quite fitting that something like that should happen. Although producer Joel Silver disagrees with the concept I would have to object to that. Even now on my normal television I tend to tilt my head slightly when Neo dodges those bullets in that iconic scene of the first movie and that was in normal two dimensions. Just imagine what it would be like if we were to see it again today. Hey, as a gimmick, they could make the 3D glasses look like the glasses from the movies.

When it comes to The Matrix I’ll have no problem in admitting my biases towards any other imitations. The Matrix is a brilliant movie! I would go as far as saying I worship The Matrix, but I wouldn’t want to step on any toes. So I’ll just say it’s a really good movie. And the whole 3D effect doesn’t have to be a permanent one. Just re-release it for a short time to pay homage to it. They did it with The Lion King, why not The Matrix.

There were talks though to make a Matrix 4 and 5 but there were some reservations about that. Once again I cannot do anything but throw my full support at it. As a fan I’ve always wanted one more movie. Just one more movie to see what happens to Morpheus, Zion and all the characters involved. Though I have no expectations in the fact that it won’t be as good as the first three, I can’t help but think: What happens next?

The Matrix is work of art not just for story but for the entire world. It moved past the three main characters of Neo, Trinity and Morpheus with the Animatrix, the online comics and the game: Enter The Matrix. There’s more to the story than just Neo vs. Agent Smith. Given that the movie ended with the salvation of Zion and an end to the war and nothing is worse than watching a movie continue when it should have ended at the first one.

But The Matrix didn’t end there. There are comics that talk about what life is like after taking the blue pill, (which was a question I had for some time), while The Animatrix introduces a character called Kid and his idolisation of Neo. Kid was always a character I found fascinating and someone deserving of a further role in the franchise. There’s so many options the Wachowski brothers can opt for it could go on for another trilogy – and then another one (and then another one … Though that might be over-kill)

For the fans such as myself who have seen The Matrix over 400 times – I think it’s over 400; I lost count at three-hundred-and-something a few years ago – I’ve even had girlfriends walk out the room because all they see are moving pictures and my voice running through the entire movie. I’ll even go as far as saying I have tattoos of The Matrix.

 I just feel that a 3D version would really bring a realism and a much deserved additive to the series and that a sequel; even if just one more; would answer those burning questions I’ve had since 1999/2003 and I would finally be able to go to sleep at night knowing what happens to Morpheus.

So please, with a burning tear in my eye - Larry, Andy, please, please make a really geeky fan happy and put 3D to a 3D deserving movie! --- But I think that burning tear was that tattoo needle actually.
