Genre Movies That Changed Film-Making: The Matrix (1999) Re-Examined on its 20th Anniversary

Genre Movies That Changed Film-Making: The Matrix (1999) Re-Examined on its 20th Anniversary

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that The Matrix is a great science-fiction movie, but there is more to it than that. For its 20th anniversary I’m going to take a look at all the elements that made The Wachowski’s movie such a cinematic milestone and how it raised the bar for all subsequent genre movies. When The Matrix was released in 1999 it opened up new vistas of imagination in screen science-fiction – a domain of cyber existence that no film had yet explored. It was a sci-fi movie that changed the genre. It was, in fact, a movie that changed film-making in general.

The fight for the future begins.”

Revisiting Hideo Nakata's Chilling Tale of Technological Dread: Ringu リング

In March 2019 Arrow Video is re-releasing Hideo Nakata’s Ringu in celebration of its 20th anniversary; restored from the original negative in vivid high definition.

Ringu is based on a novel by Koji Suzuki, (known as the ‘Japanese Stephen King’) and for any western viewer this film is the starting point for any exploration of modern Asian horror.

“How did the rumours about the video even start in the first place? This kind of thing… It doesn’t start by one person telling a story. It’s more like everyone’s fear just takes on a life of its own.”

Class of 1999 (1990, USA) Vestron Video Blu-ray Review

Class of 1999 (1990)

Class of 1999 is a spiritual successor to Mark L. Lester’s Class of 1984; a tale of revenge that depicted an increasingly violent gang clashing with the music teacher of a troubled inner-city high school. The tagline for Class of 1984“Look at us. We are the future. You can’t stop us. Don’t even try.” – was derived from a comment made in the film by the leader of the gang, Peter Stegman (played by director Timothy Van Patten): “I am the future!”
But that was 1984. The year is now 1999…

“The ultimate teaching machine… out of control.”
