Welcome, the point of this thread is to bring to light all the media that has direct or indirect elements of the Matrix. Besides the Obvious 6 (The Matrix Trilogy, Enter the Matrix, Matrix Online, The Animatrix) List old, current, or upcoming Music Videos, Games, Movies that feature a direct or indirect relation to Matrix elements. Write the Name, Media Form in
Parenthesis (say if it is a game, movie or music video) and a short description of the matrix element. I have an example below:
I just have 3 Simple Rules:
1. To make this thread productive, do not repeat posts. If someone posts a movie do not post the same movie

2. Do not be general; Example: "All Anime is like the matrix" Please, be specific.

3. No Spam, if you dont like the Matrix, i would urge you to find something more productive to do with your time than spam this thread.

Very Well, Now that we understand I shall begin.

Scary Movie 1 (Movie)

The fight scene between GhostFace & Anna Faris-

Anna does the stop motion, then rise into the air and the kick in the chest to the other side of the room (like Trinity does) After this she takes a large serving tray and throws it at GhostFace, and he does the "bullet time" that The Matrix is famous for.

WWE Smackdown:Shut your Mouth: when performing a finisher tap the special "Smackdown" Camera button and the camera rotates 360 degrees, while your wrestlers are frozen in time

I've got another that I just thought about!

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (Game)

If you hit a certain button during a jump, the camera zooms to the car, stops and then rotates 360 degrees around the car at window level. Very cool.

Film called 'Equilibrium'. The scene where the hero is shooting it out with the baddies. Loads of weaponry, bullet time, cartwheels. Clone if ever I saw one.
