  • The System (15/07/2010)
    One of my favourite films of all time is “The Matrix”. The first time I saw it I was blown away by the special effects and this was probably the reason why I enjoyed the film so much. As I grow older and watched the film over and over again I see similarities between everyday life and the sci-fi world of “The Matrix” and the special effects become irrelevant. I love the movie even more.
  • Two Worlds (02/07/2010)
