The Matrix to me, was more a tale about control, and the prison we all live in without even realising it. If you think logically, the actual tale of
the Matrix would never happen, because simply, put in that position, why would the machines use us as a power supply, when, if we took out their solar
power, they could simply go into space and leave us to the world we'd ruined. Plenty of solar power out there in space if you don't need to breathe
right? There's something to chew on...
People trying to "wake up" from the system are realising that what we are brainwashed with, ie; the Matrix, is a system of control, a prison without
walls, much the same as our reality today. Go to work, pay your taxes, and above all else shutup and do what your told. People who have broken free
suffer for it, but are actually free.
Smith is hatred, and eventually takes over, in the same way we are taught prejudice and hatred, and it is up to those who are free to rebel against
hatred and teach love. That is why Neo accepts Smith in the end, he accepts hatred into himself, and then sets his hatred free, thus Smith, or hatred
dies. The ending is those who wish to be set free from hatred are to be released to a new dawn.
The beauty of these movies is that people can take away from them what they want, I mean watch it on a base level and it's a really cool
sci-fi/action flick with heaps of guns and explosions, and a kind of supernatural element to it also.
As for Inception, I have only seen it the once, but to me it is a tale of what is real. How far can you go into your own world and regress there? It
has the same styles of visual control as The Matrix, but didn't have as much depth and feel as Matrix did. The end was good though, as it left you
wondering whether he was actually back in reality, or still dreaming, something we all wonder at times.
