The Matrix Rewound
I got a nasty fright when I first inserted the DVD and my iMac refused to play it. My first thought was that Warner Bros. had introduced some kind of crappy “copy protection” mechanism that meant I wouldn’t be able to watch the movie. I prepared myself for getting rightously indignant.
As it turned out, the actual problem was with my computer and it was caused by yours truly installing an old version of Developer Tools. A quick google on the error message turned up an Apple help article that fixed the problem.
DVDs are the perfect format for films like The Matrix Reloaded. It’s great being able to watch the best bits in high quality over and over. I’m not talking about the special effects, either. I’m talking watching about a leather-clad Trinity using Nmap and sshnuke to do some hardcore hacking.
