Title: The Matrix
Director: Ivan Reitman
Run time: 1hr 45m

What they discover is that all Manhattan is being besieged by other worldly demons.”
1:30 – I wish my books would reorganise themselves.
3:45 – Is this why people in the 80s had such big hair? Electric shock therapy?
6:59 – How come I’ve never been in a library like that? It’s so big and spacious and old. All the libraries I know are like portacabins.
10:26 – Bill Murray is awesome.
13:53 – I find it odd that their funding would be stopped with no notice.
20:10 – Wow. In my fridge, there is just cheese.
21:30 – Did he just say “print is dead”? That’s incredible!
24:51 – Well, there you go. I noticed that she had some Stay Puft marshmallows, and it blew Mr C’s mind.
29:37 – Ah, this makes sense. We saw a car decked out like that at Goodwood Festival of Speed, and was tasked to take a picture. I didn’t know why at the time!
33:00 – Slimer!
40:13 – Where are they getting all their nuclear power from, because BTTF had to rob some Libyans for the plutonium and stuff.
45:48 – Ooh, another film with the EPA. No Google required this time.
1:00:11 – Does that receptionist not have a home to go to?
1:04:45 – So, here are my current questions: 1 – why does the alien ghost thing look like a gremlin? w – how did the keymaster and gatekeeper lose each other? 3 – when is Stay Puft in it?
1:07:02 – What kind of insult is pencilneck?
1:17:04 – Dogs and cats living together, a disaster of biblical proportions. I like it.
1:19:06 – Uh oh, it’s all gone a little bit eighties. Bad hair, bad choice of song…
1:21:02 – I’m sure I saw an earthquake like this in Superman once. He just spun round really fast backwards.
1:24:44 – Is Stay Puft even in this film? We want Stay Puft!
1:31:20 – Yes! There he is. I want one.
1:34:55 – I am torn between intrigue over the idea of the entire street covered in marshmallow, and disgust at being covered in goo.
I must preface this live blog with the admission that a) I did not watch it alone, therefore I may not have made as many notes as I normally would and b) I had drunk a little bit of wine, therefore any notes I did make may be completely pointless.
It turns out everyone was right. You all said it was a great film and it is. I laughed a lot at the end. I don’t know how much of that was the wine, but I would have enjoyed it sober as well. I am bitterly disappointed at the lack of Slimer, I thought he was in it more. (Also secretly glad because *shudder* more goo.)
