If you build an empty box, people will fill it with words

As of this writing, there are 264 comments attached to The Matrix Reloaded thread — about 200 more than I thought there would be — and it’s still going strong (14 comments today). The wide array of theories as to what people think the movie is all about and what the next installment holds range from mere speculation on plot points to complex philosophical explanations (some of them quite informed) to disinterested & unimpressed reactions to nutball Kennedy assassination-level theories. Even if you’re not interested in the movie, the thread is an interesting look at the various degrees of meaning people get from media.
