In every romantic comedy based in New York: how the hell can these young people afford to live in New York?

Welcome to my 2,000 sq foot Manhatten apartment I pay for by waiting tables. Oh, none of my furniture is secondhard crap or ikea crap. Also, when I go shopping I always buy a loaf of french bread and it sticks out the top of the bag I carry.

Batman Begins.

They had microwaves that were supposed to vaporize the water in the sewers, to release the fear toxins.

Why didn't the microwaves also vaporize all the water in the humans as well? Humans are ~75% water. That never made sense to me.

[–] 9675117 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

I'm pretty sure the microwaving was localized to the sewers. There aren't people down in the sewers, so they won't get vaporized.

Almost every zombie movie. When they were alive, they were unhealthy, low IQ schleps working at Walmart. Now they have increased sense of smell, they run faster than you, and they are somehow immune to rigor mortis and biological decay!! Also, they still leak liquid blood. And also! You're wrestling with one (a la walking dead) and stabbing it in the head while it's gooey parts are falling all over you, but it's cool, you'll be fine. Get scratched by one? You're done.

Theres newer zombie books out there that have more realistic zombies. The zombies aren't dead but more or less infected by a parasite. Like the parasite that controls ants or other insects. I find those stories more enjoyable as they don't get all crazy with how zombies operate.

Easy. They don't need IQ, the virus/bacteria (it's usually virus) rewires brain to disable higher thinking and leave only parts responsible for basic impulses processing (kinda like niggers). The "feeding" frenzy is just for the virus to spread, it has nothing to do with physical hunger.
As for speed - ever heard of tard strength? It's basically that. Body loses all inhibitions, so it will run faster and hit harder even if it means physical harm. Enough to suspend my sense of disbelief.

You're wrestling with one (a la walking dead) and stabbing it in the head while it's gooey parts are falling all over you, but it's cool, you'll be fine. Get scratched by one? You're done.

If you assume that virus cannot penetrate soft tissue and can't survive being outside of viable host too long, then it's plausible. Once it gets to bloodstream, you're done. I like how it's explained in Zombie Survival Book by Max Brooks, but it features shamblers, not runners.

The beginning of the Matrix until they pull neo out as a collective thing. If you rewatch it none of it makes sense. Why didn't the agents hop into the cops to kill trinity in that room but were totally fine with hijacking that truck driver a few minutes later? If Neo is plugged into the Matrix why do the agents need to place a physical tracker on him? How in the fuck did they know about the white rabbit? Why didn't they pull him that night in the club? Also if Neo is physically plugged into the Matrix and they can read the code how do they not know where he is physically right away?

All of this generally stems from the same thing. They were trying to hide the nature of the matrix from the viewer and had to bend the logical framework of the matrix to have a better sense of pacing. So that when Neo finally wakes up it is much more dramatic for the viewer.

Also as an aside how the fuck can they read encrypted computer programming? The amount of information needed to run the matrix would make that impossible.

Only addressing one small point that you brought up (which doesn't change any of your larger arguments)

Why didn't the agents hop into the cops to kill trinity in that room

That scene was shown out of sequence. When Smith say "your officers are already dead" he means it literally, not that they are about to die. We then see the scene that has already happened in the apartment to show how they died.

That is probably the best possible explanation but would not really fit with the rest of the film. At no other point are time shifts utilized in the film and to do so their without explanation is certainly possible but I'm guessing giving the film makers more credit than they deserve.
[edit] also it isn't clear that trinity kills any of those men. She roughs them up sure but she isn't scene on camera executing them IIRC.

Both inside and outside the matrix are the computer simulation. The escape of Neo is planned by the architect. Neo exists only as code to give the humans hope that itself does not exist.

This is completely undone by the third movie unless the oracle is unaware of this fact which would make zero sense in light of the fact that the oracle designed the matrix in conjunction with the architect. Also if the matrix is nested in a matrix why bother with the reset of the matrix. Why not just skip to the end of the third movie at the onset seeing as so long as the humans believe they have a choice the matrix functions properly. While it is supported by certain aspects of the film it would open as many plot holes as it would close.

The matrix plot is actually incredibly good. To answer u/JohnPaulJones, machines are letting humans live, everything is staged to give us the illusion of hope and... for training us. They don't need our body energy as much as you think, they put humans in the matrix from preventing us from blowing up the world. If you want to learn more about it I suggest you watching the animatrix.

I've watched the Matrix countless times. Until Neo is unplugged nothing is self consistent. I really enjoy the Matrix movies but their are plot holes miles wide even if you use elaborate fan theories to try and close the holes.

His wife tried to sue for all the inaccuracies and outright lies in the film. She was paid a massive sum of $50k for her contributions to the film. Classic Spielbergenstein.

EDIT - just looking at the number of Oscars it won. Fucking absurd.
