    The Matrix Resurrections

    ★★★★

    Not a reboot, but a rebirth.

    Both a satirical, self-reflexive meta-sequel and a sincere gonzo sci-fi action follow-up to the world and story of the original trilogy. The Matrix Resurrections is an anomaly in big-budget reboots - helmed with singular, untampered vision by Lana Wachowski.

    My main concern going in was that too much of the DNA of The Matrix would weigh this film down, but Resurrections only borrows the structure of the first film and mirrors its story beats,…

    The Green Knight

    ★★★★

    This is such an indica movie.

    Medieval psychedelia laced with a lush visual aesthetic. A mysterious and psychological voyage of inner discovery displayed through the lyrical poetry of images. Our myths still have much to teach us about ourselves.

    "The world is fit for all manner of mysteries."

    It doesn't quite beat the original Saw trilogy (or Saw VI), but Spiral sees…

    Vapir

    "It is the question that drove you here. The question that has been like a splinter in your mind - you've asked yourself when will science fuse with nature to allow for a more beneficial, less destructive way to enjoy her herbal benefits? You know the question don't you?"

    "What is The Vapir?"

    A Matrix-themed ad for a dry-herb vaporizer the size of a cinderblock.

    Unique as an artifact of capitalism misappropriating a revolutionary text in an attempt to craft an "us vs them" narrative between cigarette users and the badass techno-anarchists that use an overpriced vape rig.
