As a filmmaker and Boing Boing enthusiast y’all posting about my video is like the coolest thing in the world. That is all.
i can’t remember the last time i laughed that hard. thx Joseph and Xeni, made my day.
I can: it was while watching Star Wars Retold, which is also the work of Joseph Nicolosi.
Your film is awesome, I laughed very hard many times. Congrats! Great job
You’re a good kid for giving your mom top billing. Thanks for making this.
Your mom rocks, dude! Funny stuff. Not sure why she’s fixated on Neo’s sexual preferences, but whatever! LOL
It IS a pretty awesome video… Moshimo!
I genuinely had to go look up that character’s name because once Moshimo got in my head, it’s all that rattled around in there.
Probably doesn’t help that I’ve been trying to purge that movie from memory ever since the first sequel came out.
I totally fell asleep when I saw The Matrix in the theater, so I can relate to the “closing my eyes” part.
His mom has a very soothing voice.
I imagine it’s from years of telling bedtime stories to lucky sons.
on the other hand, I am the mom who took her kids to see Matrix and whose daughter won some scholarship money for her essay about it
Niiice. It’s my fault that my son only recognizes Star Trek TNG as the only possible Star Trek (though JJ Abrams seems to be making some inroads, there).
Cheers, to all the geek moms out there!!!
TNG is basically a children’s show: one morality play per week with an obvious lesson pounded in with a gigantic hammer. It’s Davey and Goliath with forehead prosthetics. TOS is similar, but with much more foreplay. DS9 was a remarkably sophisticated show about the politics of opportunism.
Yeah, it’s those tidy, short morality plays that get his attention. And I think he may have a slight crush on Troi.
I wanted to be Troi. And have a threesome with Worf and first-season Riker.
I like the way you think. ;-)
Too bad there are no sequels for her to watch.
Leo has to save Moshimo!
I had no idea Leo was bi!
I learn something new every time I visit BoingBoing.
Rest in peace, Moshimo!
My own mom has her own method of film critique that’s pretty linear. Typically the longer she can keep awake through a movie, the better it is. Plot summaries of the movies she wasn’t crazy about tend to be somewhat abridged and focused on the first half hour or so.
We subscribe to Netflix, as do my neighbors who are in their seventies. If a film is very good, I’ll walk it over to their house for them to watch. (Our queue is very long, theirs is very short). My standard for walking the DVD over is, is it good enough to keep Cy awake for the entire film? The star rating system vs. Cy’s snore rating.
Wait, he’s “good”, is he? I’m confused…
My son laughed at me that much when I was trying to answer his damn question, I would smack him so hard!
His Mom must be the nicest, sweetest person in the world…notice how she admits that she does not remember the ending but adds “I think the ending was really good” just to compliment the movie.
Or she smacked him off-screen afterwards. :)
The world needs more people like your mum, thanks Joseph!
The video really sold the story. I loved the subtle changing of Neo’s facial expressions. Good flick.
I was kinda sad that she sorta missed the point – the whole “the world isn’t real” and “humans will destroy ourselves”. That’s what makes the movie great, not the stupid fighting/helicopter scenes!
That was wonderful! Well done and very, very funny. Thanks for the post, Xeni :)
I love your Mom! That was great.
