The Matrix Revolutions - Donation Bonus

"Everything that has a beginning has an end." That mantra is spoken repeatedly in The Matrix Revolutions, the conclusion of the Wachowski Brothers' original vision. But is this a case where the ends justify the means? In 2003 this film was met with widespread fan dissatisfaction, but with over 10 years of distance Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie are ready to jack in one last time. Does the film deserve its reputation? If you DONATE and SUPPORT NOW PLAYING you can find out!

The Matrix Reloaded - Donation Bonus

It took four years for movie fans to re-enter the Matrix. From 1999 to 2003 there were no Matrix movies, comics, or even video games. But in 2003 that all changed as the Wachowski Brothers unleashed an onslaught of Matrix media on fans, including not one but two films that promised to bring the Matrix saga to a close. The first of those films was The Matrix Reloaded. Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus were back but they brought dozens of new characters increasing the complexity of the film series. Fans left theaters divided on the sequel they had anticipated for so long, but was the film that much of a departure from the original? DONATE TO NOW PLAYING to find out!

The Animatrix - Donation Bonus

In 1999 the world learned the answer to the question "What is the Matrix." Then in 2003 a new question arose: "What is The Animatrix?" Released direct-to-video on June 3, 2003 The Animatrix compiled 9 short films from well-known animators, including the creators of Aeon Flux and Akira. With some segments written by The Wachowski Brothers and intended to tie directly into the two Matrix sequels, these films provided a deeper exploration of the history and lore of The Matrix universe. Now Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart review the nine films, "Final Flight of the Osiris", "The Second Renaissance" (Parts 1 and 2), "Kid's Story", "Program", "World Record", "Beyond", "A Detective Story", and "Matriculated." Did these films enhance the Matrix films or was it merely a cash-grab for a popular, new franchise? If you DONATE and SUPPORT NOW PLAYING PODCAST you can listen and find out!

The Matrix - Donation Bonus

In 1999 sci-fi fans were blown away by a new vision of rebel freedom fighters struggling against an oppressive ruler. New CGI effects helped to create visions never before seen in film. No, we're not talking about The Phantom Menace but The Matrix. Part Terminator, part Star Wars, part video game, The Matrix created a cult following and a fashion style. Now, fifteen years later, does this film still hold up? If you DONATE AND SUPPORT NOW PLAYING PODCAST you can take the red pill and Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie will show you how deep the rabbit hole goes!
