Everything is a Remix – The Matrix

By Paul Martin October 7th, 2011, in The Matrix

We’ve all known for a while that The Matrix was a mixture of a great many things.  The Wachowski brothers themselves are big anime and kung fu fans, so it makes sense that they would put homages to some of their favorites into their film.

Rob G. Wilson made this video examining the origins of The Matrix. It was written by Cynthia Closkey and most of the comparisons were crowdsourced by Everything is a Remix fans.
