The first Matrix movie (first only and forget the other 2) vs the movie inception. They're both phenomenal films and both of them question whether the world around us is actually real, and they both have spectacular acting and special effects. But which movie do you think is better?

I personally think the Matrix wins by just a little bit simply because it explains why the matrix exists because of the machines harvesting humans and how the matrix works. Inception never explains the technology developed to enter someone else's dreams very well.

Which movie do you think is better? And please give reasons if you don't mind, don't just simply put down the movie name.

@teentitansfan94: I think this belongs in Off-Topic. My vote goes to the Matrix.

Not a very good comparison imo. Two very different concepts and tones.

The Matrix is a classic, using a post-apocalyptic / cyber punk themes and incorporating some pretty awesome martial arts.

Inception is relatively new and a psychological action/adventure thriller.

This is hard, one is an excellent cyberpunk martial arts film and the other is an excellent noir bank heist of the mind film.

The Matrix by a mile.

Inception was needlessly complicated. The entire movie was designed to make you walk away without fully comprehending what you saw, and the way they achieve that is by adding layers that don't really do anything to enhance the characters or the plot, all it really does is add some urgency, which could have been accomplished through any of million simpler methods.

Inception because it actually made me experiment on my dreams by trying to be make myself become self conscious in my dreams.

To be fair, Matrix had top-notch effects of its time, and sorta revolutionized CGI with the bullet-time effects.

No Doubt, it was a close tie but what one it was the that Inception actually had a spinning Hallway that the actors fought in

Didnt really care for either, but Inception is slightly better.

Matrix. Inception was a needlessly convoluted movie with a pretty bad plot. Walked away from it with no idea what happened.

I think the better question is: which one is more confusing?

#29 Posted by DeathpooltheT1000 (11590 posts) - - Show Bio

So its a Nostalgia Ride For The Millenium Change.

A movie that if you hate you get shit by hipsters

Against a Popular Movie that It Biggest Flaw is Being Too Popular.

That hate it make you a popular hipster.

Its Hulk Hogan (Matrix) vs John Cena (Inception).

Only 11 years apart though

That's a long time.

Youtube didn't exist and the Twin Towers were still standing when The Matrix came out.

BTW Blade invented Bullet Time not The Matrix

#33 Posted by Gambit474 (1481 posts) - - Show Bio

Well to be fair..You can't really compare the two because the Matrix has had what..like three films to go by whereas Inception only had its one.

I like both, but I choose the Matrix.

Inception. In the Matrix, it is explained how the machines harvest the humans to survive and keep them in a false reality, the Matrix. It is explained how the technology works and why it was created. That is never explained in Inception. Also, in the Matrix, you only had 2 realities, the Matrix and the real world. In Inception, everything would get confusing since you had multiple layers of the dream, and everything on one level messed with the other levels.

The matrix had deep philosophical thoughts buried in it.

Inception seemed like a movie trying to be overly clever and complicated to be cool. I just found it lacking. Sure to get heat for that.

To be fair, Matrix had many "philosophical" dialogue moments that if you actually look deep into them they are hollow and nothing new. Having said that, they were keen to the movie, and needed for the story. But still, rather empty. Sure to get flack for that as well. Matrix was hugely entertaining though, in fact, going to watch it now. It's been awhile.

The Matrix and am I the only one who didn't find Inception confusing at all while watching it? The hardest part to understand about the movie was what the Chinese guy was saying period. Took me forever to understand his accent.

Let's see what "Sreen Junkies" has to say about this!

The Matrix

Inception

I like the Matrix better because of it's anthropological messages.

#43 Posted by BlackLegRaph (731 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't pick. Probably go with Inception if forced to choose.

Though Inception is better than those awful sequels.

@extremis: The question if our reality is truly "real" or not. Also Neo's ability at the end to bend the rules of the matrix compliments many peoples cultural construction of reality. At least that's how I see it.

oh, I wouldn't call those "anthropological" messages. That was my initial confusion. I'd say philosophical. "Brain in a vat", questioning the concept of "reality", etc.

Out of the whole "Fictional Reality" genre of these movies I'd say

Best movie: Dark City

Worst movie: The Adjustment Bureau
