This fantastic video recreates the lobby scene from The Matrix using Lego minifig versions of Neo and Trinity. There’s also a fascinating behind-the-scenes video that shows how a six-second segment of the video took an hour and a half to create.

Okay, seriously, I give up. I just need to accept that Funko is on a mission to take over the world and prepare to tithe a percentage of my paycheck to them on a monthly basis. Because, seriously, they just keep making things that cause me to make grabby hands!
Teeny Trinity is the new best thing ever.
The only upside here is that they’re not expected until March of 2015, but you can pre-order now.

The world as you know it is about to change forever, or at least the world of luxury cars, according to this Super Bowl ad for the Kia K900. It features Laurence Fishburn in his role as Morpheus from The Matrix, but it’s a whole new world of choices. Will you choose the blue key and stay with what you know, or the red key? Red. Really, choose red because you’ll get to see streetlamps explode and cars float as Morpheus lets lose with some opera.

Everyone loved The Matrix when it first hit theaters because it was an incredible movie with amazing special effects and an intriguing story. And then came the sequels. Screen Junkies gives us the Honest Trailer for The Matrix, which would have been handy when the movie first came out so we knew not to expect much from the next two films.

When Ace and Karla got engaged, they knew they wanted some type of nerdy photos, but it seems they had a tough time choosing and so they just decided to do a multi-themed shoot.
Which I think is great. I mean, if you love this many nerd things and you love each other, what better way to show your love than a Matrix/Scott Pilgrim/Harry Potter/Alice In Wonderland photo shoot?
It looks like they had lots of fun and, when you think about it, isn’t that what these types of photos are all about?

The best way to learn how someone acheived a certain effect is to try to tackle it yourself. That’s what Jeremiah Warren does, and it seems to be working out pretty well for him. He recently applied his resourcefulness to rigging a ceiling fan to film The Matrix style bullet time effect. He saw a video from a friend that used the technique with a GoPro 3 as the high speed camera. Warren built the rig, lit some fireworks, and went to town. The result is so freaking cool.

Joe Nicolosi’s mom had never seen The Matrix. He did what any good son should do and watched it with her. After it was over, she explained to him what she thought about it and gives a basic summary. She doesn’t understand the blue and red pill business, and she calls Laurence Fishburne’s character Moshimo. It’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen this week.

DeviantArtist ikar11 has transformed some Kidrobot Munnyworld figures into an incredible version of The Matrix. Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus are much less badass, but way cuter in this version of things. He’s even made a video that brings the two worlds together. Now we’re all left to wonder if it’s this world, The Matrix or the Munnyworld that’s actually real.
