I'm filling out a "movies" meme and was just checking to see if I've seen Matrix: Revolutions (I have), and something occurred to me. In these kinds of movies I usually root for the machines unless they're being really evil, like in Terminator. But I'm making an exception for The Matrix: the machines in it may be acting evilly, but they're doing it to survive, and humans didn't exactly earn their respect. After all, Morpheus admits that the machines started out solar-powered and it was humans who picked a fight with them. It was humans who scorched the sky, not only stopping the machines from being able to use solar power but probably killing all plant life on the entire surface of the planet at the same time. Yes, the machines are using humans as living batteries and feeding them their dead intravenously, but humans *forced* them to do this to survive. Even then, the machines tried making a nice little virtual Eden for the humans and the humans still fought back. I am 100% on the side of the machines in these movies. Fuck Neo, fuck Morpheus, fuck Zion: the machines act as they do because humans gave them no other choice. So I say GO MACHINES!
