The Matrix Reloaded/The Shape of Things
I know, not another quiz. But having seen The Matrix Reloaded yesterday afternoon, I thought it might be fun to take The Matrix persona quiz. Once again, not really surprised by the results. As for the movie, much has already been written about it, so I won’t spend anytime providing summary or a review. But let’s just say I was pleasantly surprised. Also, I got a kick out of seeing Harvard Divinity School Professor Cornel West in the film as a member of the council. So fitting for his personality. During my tenure at Michigan, he gave a lecture which I attended and ever since then, I’ve been a big fan.
You are Trinity, from “The Matrix.”
Strong, beautiful- you epitomize the ultimate
Since I had another movie pass that was expiring yesterday, I also went to see The Shape of Things. The theme of this movie is that people in general are overly obsessed with looks. To illustrate point, girl meets geeky boy who she pretends to like through sexual enticement, while making subtle suggestions about ways to improve his looks. Specially, she coaxes him to go on diet where he looses 25 pounds, buys new clothes, gets a stylist haircut and even a nose job. I’m going to give spoiler and tell that the climax of movie occurs went she reveals that she manipulated and ultimately humiliated him as part of her thesis project. Yup, she did it for a grade. What a bitch! He did it for love. He had even proposed marriage with his grandmother’s wedding ring. I can’t say I enjoyed the movie as there was nothing really profound about the story and it was a little weird with just four characters talking back and forth to each other in various combinations. But in the end I walked away with the following line in my head: “I choose you.” No one has ever said that to me and really meant it. I wish someone would. Sad eh?
