You know what REALLY grinds my gears about the seduction community…
References to THE MATRIX…
I don’t mind Fight Club references (another movie from 1999) because I can see obvious correlations between it and changing your life for the better.
But when gurus make references to Neo and Morpheus… and “entering the matrix”… and swallowing different colored pills… and the real world vs. perception… and other theoretical mumbo jumbo; I get perturbed.
It is one of those movies everyone likes to pretend they understand because they consider themselves deep intellectuals. I can only imagine that somewhere out there right now there is a guy with a Che Guevara t-shirt and a girl with Lisa Loeb framed glasses discussing the movie while sipping overpriced organic double mocha cappuccinos in a franchised coffee shop that is trying to look hip, trendy and unique.
I’ll be honest; I never got the movie nor did I make any attempt to draw hidden meaning from it. The only thing I liked about it was the “bullet time” action and I liked that for about one minute.
Here’s my brief summary of the movie as a whole:
Two weird and creepy brothers wrote and directed The Matrix which stars Cowboy Curtis, Guido the killer pimp and “Ted” Theodore Logan. They threw in an unattractive female lead along with a bunch of nerdy talk and pseudy intellectual babble. When they opened the spigot out came liquid cow manure which everyone devoured like it was fucking Perrier.
