Everything has been said before... - Dont get swallowed by...THE BLOG!
Vlad 2.0...Coming soon!
Everything has been said before...
...yet it will be said again.
The following post will be about the movie
The Matrix:Reloaded
It also contains spoilers for it, incase you are one of 12 people who have yet to see it. This post is really long
Careful, my nerdiness is showing:

Its about 4am, and I just finished watching the movie again, since my family rented the DVD. I figured I'd refresh myself since I'll be seeing the end of the trilogy in a few weeks. (Small sidenote, Hugo Weaving is in both major trilogies that have come out in recent years, The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings, he's quite the busy guy.)

Now I'm not going to bore you with random bits of trivia like the fact that "andre" means "Man" in some obscure Norse dialect and Anderson [i.e. Neo's last name] would mean son of man, something Jesus called himself. But yes, we all know the comparisons between Neo and Jesus. And Neo and Buddha. So I'll move on from that.

Oh wait, yes I will. But yes, we all know the comparisons between Neo and Jesus. And Neo and Buddha. So I'll move on from that.
So, you might not have understood, or you might have missed some of the following:

When Smith first appears and talks to himself, they say
Smith1: It's happening again, exactly as before.
Smith2: Well, not exactly.
Refering to the fact that the Matrix is going to be rebooted. Again.

The Merovingian: "Oh you mean that funny french dude?" Yes, him. First, the name. The Merovingians were a dynasty that ruled in Europe a long, long, long time ago. To give you a point of reference, I believe Charlemagne was a Carolingian, the dynasty AFTER the Merovingians. The Merovingians were supposedly descendents from the family of none other than Jesus. (Yes, Joseph and Mary had children other than Jesus, for example James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus, check the tombstone)
Also, I'm assuming that if you're still reading, you've seen the movie and are bored, so I'll explain a tiny micro-theory. The Merovingian is somehow related to The Ones. I dont know how. Anyways, what makes me thinkso is the part when Persephone bitches about him. She says something like "When we came here so long ago, he was different. He was like you" refering to Neo. Merovingian was like Neo so long ago.

(warning, tangent) He's married to Persephone, who in greek mythology was the wife of Hades, king of the underworld, now king of the underworld is the devil, the devil being an angel that fought against his creator(God, or the architect??) and was banished to rule in hell (smith described the matrix as a hell) hmm...

Ok, moving on. The number 101 constantly being thrown about. But once again, you only notice it if you're made aware of it. (creepy, eh? like the matrix!)
101 is binary code (thats how how computers talk) for 5.
"Five? what the hell does five matter?! You're stupid Vlad!"
Allow me to explain. Computers start counting at 0. To explain, think of it like centuries. 0-99 was the first century 100-199 was the second. That would make "5" the 6th century, or the 6th version of the Matrix, which is what the Architect calls it.
Also 6 in the bible is something about Jesus turning into a Man. I read somethin about that, thought I'd throw it out there. AND Seraphim (plural form of Seraph, the Oracle's gaurdian) are six-winged angels(3 pairs of wings). 6 again.
His name's Seraph not Seraphim just like my name isnt Vladimirs.

Neo has 314 seconds (just over 5 mins) to get into the door leading to the source. 3.14 is Pi. Refering to circles and the cyclical path of the Matrix and The One. The path of the One always leads back to the source and rebooting the matrix and restarting Zion, atleast, the first 5 times it did.

And the following can be noted just for fun:

In the "Enter the Matrix" game, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Monica Belucci (Persephone) kiss. Real footage.

They refer to Commander Lock as "Deadbolt" behind his back. I think thats a penis reference.

The blond who the Merovingian sends the orgasm cake to is prolly the one who blows him in the ladies room.

The architect wishes he was Donald Sutherland.

The Merovingian (Satan) chooses to speak French.

The keymaker is an asian dude who knows all the combos. Asians are good at math and video games.

The Genius that is Vlad

1. You're a genius
2. You have too much time to yourself
3. When reading your Lj, I had this amazing moment that I really understood... but oddly enough I've never taken Into. to Phil.
4. It's details like that which make the Matrix really awesome to me, and everyone else who says that they don't like the Matrix for this reason or that are lying, because they really just don't get it. And if the W. Bros. didn't put that stuff in on purpose and it was just Vlad who made those very clever connections... then I look like a big idiot right now.
5. Like my icon? My design... and the architect is so a Donald Sutherland wannabe. I was pissed because it was like a cheap knockoff of Donald.
