    The Matrix Resurrections

    ★★★★

    I was never a huge Matrix fan. "The Matrix" in my view is the best of the series. I enjoyed the second, checked out of the series (or so I thought) after Revolutions, but caught this for free on HBOMAX.

I read his reviews online pretty religiously and did not always agree but I knew that the man had put thought and care into what he had written. One particular review that always annoyed me was his pan of A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. Word has it that it was his wife, Chaz's favorite movie…
