On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, we’ll be celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Matrix! Has it stood the test of time? Can it truly be considered a watershed film on par with the original Star Wars? Is it truly the Wachowskis single best film? Is it nothing more than a polished amalgamation of wuxia films, heroic bloodshed, cyberpunk, anime, and manga? Did the Wachowskis basically steal their ideas from Sophia Stewart? Did they simply plagiarize writer Grant Morrison’s comic series The Invisibles? Has the film’s influence truly been a lasting one? Can The Matrix be considered a loving tribute to Hong Kong Action cinema, or just a cheap imitation of it? Can the Wachowski’s ever return to their former glory? Should the saga of Neo continue?
We’ll also talk about the sex abuse allegations currently being made towards filmmaker Bryan Singer. If Michael Egan’s prove to be true, could they spell the end of Bryan Singer’s career? What impact would it have on Hollywood as a whole? Just how deep could the proverbial rabbit whole go? Could Amy Berg’s upcoming documentary on child sexual abuse in Hollywood be a feature- length indictment of Singer and his ilk? Is this whole scandal nothing more than an anti-gay witch-hunt? What could this mean for X-Men: Days of Future Past and the X-Men franchise in general? Could a full-on backlash be imminent?
