Plugging Into “The Matrix” Trilogy (feat. Sean Finnegan)
On a new Be Reel, we enter the Matrix trilogy, which is streaming in its entirety on Netflix. The franchise, of course, begins with one of the most iconic action films of modern times, and we bring in IGN’s Sean Finnegan to discuss how and why “The Matrix” is still relevant and surprising 18 years after its release.
Then, it’s on to the nearly five hours of sequels: “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolutions.” The words “stupid” and “nearly ruins” are tossed about. And in its own, unintentional way, this franchise has caused us to rethink our choices as human beings. Would we have taken the blue pill on this whole Be Reel category?
Thanks very much to Sean for joining us. Check out his production and cinematography work here.

Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
