Must Watch: EVERYTHING IS A REMIX - THE MATRIX

Movie Videos The Matrix by Jim Napier

Reboots, remakes, recycled plots are nothing new these days. Just like history is cyclical, so are movies. Directors, writers and actors are influenced by others that have come before them. Hollywood has many innovators, but it is often replicated and nothing is 100% original. The series Everything is a Remix, produced by Kirby Ferguson strives to prove that point. The videos he creates take fans inside their favorite films to get a close look at what movies borrow from movies before them. 

Here is Ferguson's most recent video that takes a closer look at the seemingly unique film The Matrix by The Wachowski Brothers. Check out the video below and see fore yourself:

Here are the respective films that influenced The Matrix and their timestamps:

0:27 – Fist of Legend (1994)
0:38 – Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons) (1993)
0:44 – Fist of Legend (1994)
0:48 – Tai-Chi Master (Twin Dragons) (1993)
0:53 – Drunken Master (1978)
1:02 – Fist of Legend (1994)
1:09 – The Killer (1989)
1:19 – Fist of Legend (1994)

3:42 – The Killer (1989)
3:53 – A Better Tomorrow (1986)
4:05 – Ghost In The Shell (1995)
4:32 – Akira (1998)
4:39 – Koyannisqatsi (1982)
4:49 – Dr. Who: The Deadly Assassin (1976)

I personally do not think anything less of the Wachowski's for liberating these techniques for the film. What about you?
