Episode 139 - THE ANIMATRIX


Matrix March keeps on scrolling with The Animatrix, an anthology that once bridged the gap between big-screen sequels, and today stands as one of the most unique and ambitious tie-ins of a major Hollywood production. The nine segments featured present an up close and personal view of a technology-fueled dystopia, and offer plenty more philosophical questions for us to debate.

Andrew McNally returns as we shift our focus from massive Australian soundstages to Japanese animation studios and American effects houses. The archives of Zion are open and waiting to be explored. A new world awaits you...

Episode 138 - THE MATRIX RELOADED


The Matrix was quite naturally perfect, a work of art, flawless, sublime. However, it was the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite our sincerest efforts has led us, inexorably, here: Matrix March. Ergo, we begin our journey through the rest of the groundbreaking sci-fi franchise with The Matrix Reloaded.

Concordantly, we have again recruited one of Zion's most loyal sons, Andrew McNally, to help us reflect the varying grotesqueries of our nature through our reactions to this polarizing sequel and its place in an ambitious multimedia narrative. Apropos, we hope you will join us on our quest to find the source, and enjoy the rest of Matrix March.
