"Zealous Zionite"

Most folks will instantly pan the hell out of it, when you bring up The Matrix Trilogy. But whatever. There's no denying how unbelievably cool the first movie was. All that flying kung-fu, bullets and patent leather, combined will killer robots and oodles of cyberpunk homage -- it was almost TOO cool.

And of course, the coolest brother in the series was Morpheus. Even without the reflective shades and floor-length, futuristic-flasher trenchcoat, Morpheus was Superfly TNT. And he proved it when he threw himself into a head-on fight with Agent Smith (in a dingy bathroom, no less!). Of course, he got his ass whooped. Punched and kicked into midair, body slammed, head cracked against a toilet bowl -- Morpheus took a thorough licking, for sure. But the fact that he kept getting up and going against a unbeatable opponent? Well, that's some true heroic grit for the ages.

  1. The first Matrix is one of my favorite movies ever! Great storytelling, suspense and pacing. The other two... not so much. And yes, Morpheus was the coolest man ever.
