"The author focuses on the "Matrix" film trilogy, made up of the films "The Matrix," The Matrix Reloaded," and "The Matrix Revolutions." The author claims that while film audiences were disappointed by "Reloaded" and "Revolutions" as endings to the trilogy, the trilogy does in fact offer an effective conclusion as it corresponds to psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan's theories of the Imaginary, Symbolic, and Real. The author discusses Lacan's theories in relation to an analysis of "The Matrix" as the Imaginary, "Reloaded" as the Symbolic, and "Revolutions" as the Real, and audience reaction to the films."

The article discusses racial aspects of science fiction films. The author discusses how science fiction films of the 1950s such as "The Time Machine" depicted racial anxieties and how the Black Power movement resulted in the presence of more black characters in science fiction films such as "Planet of the Apes" and "Soylent Green." He suggests the motion picture "Star Wars" depicts good and evil using black and white colors but notes that the sequels feature the black character Lando Calrissian. He discusses the popularity of actor Will Smith in science fiction films such as "Independence Day" and "Men in Black" and suggests racial roles are reversed in the film "The Matrix" and its sequels.

"The article discusses the use of bullet time as visual effects. The author claims that the scenes in the film "The Matrix," in which Carrie-Anne Moss moves with a fluid weightlessness, were the launch of bullet time. It is believed that bullet time is composed of an extended take when the camera appears to have a movement that holds a main character in focus as action extend at different rates. From 1999 to around 2003, bullet time had its popularity as it organized commercial, critical and technical discourses in the movie." [Ebsco]

"The article focuses on the presence of the story of Oedipus in films. It discusses the variations of works on Oedipus' story including myth, epic, tragedy, and comedy. It also explores various views on the story of Oedipus and Greek mythology that are being projected in films including "Edipo re," directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini, "Freud" directed by John Huston, and "The Matrix," directed by Andy and Larry Wachowski. It cites that films about Oedipus have modern and autobiographical settings and are updated versions of either Sophocles' "Oedipus the King" or the original myth. Moreover, it is noted that changes have been made in names, characters, plot and themes in these films." [Ebsco]
