These video is a must-watch for film geeks. And more than that, it’s an interesting testament to how inspiration works and, yes, how everything we see is a remix of something that came before.
From Akira to Total Recall to Strange Days to scores of kung-fu films and the unreal concepts hatched by sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick, this six-minute clip (above) compares frames from The Matrix to scores of movies and other media.
I don’t know about you, and I don’t care what you think, but I’m ready for the fourth one if they ever make it.
