Nighthawks guest host Terry Flemings is back in the Nighthawks diner, a place that is virtual and conceptual.
Speaking of material used on the podcast, this episode covers the latest entry in The Matrix franchise: The Matrix Resurrections from director Lana Wachowski. The franchise began with Lana and her sister, Lilly Wachowski, behind the camera for The Matrix- a watershed film in blockbusters, action films, and pop culture.
After two theatrically released sequels (The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions), two video games (Enter The Matrix, The Matrix Online), and a direct-to-video animation shorts collection (The Animatrix) carried the canon of The Matrix into the 21st Century, the franchise seemed destined to get rebooted or remade in the 2020s. Instead Lana Wachowski elects to make a direct sequel by way of Wes Craven’s New Nightmare.
Featuring Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their original roles and Jonathan Groff swinging in from his Mindhunting Hamilton career to take on the role of the iconic Agent Smith.
Some things change, some things stay the same, and many things are not what they seem.
Pop a red pill with a tall glass of meta storytelling and step into the diner…
