  2. Brace Yourselves: Rumors Say The Matrix Is Getting a Prequel Trilogy

    Which pill do I take where this ends up being good news?

    The Matrix was a huge achievement in filmmaking both technically, visually, and in terms of story. The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions may not have been as bad as most people make them out to be, but let's just say the news of a Matrix prequel trilogy has us... cautiously optimistic.

  3. Our Favorite 2014 Super Bowl Ads Both Aired and Unaired [Video]

    Great Moments in Advertising

    Whether or not you care about the Super Bowl, you probably know that it marks the airing of some of the best commercials and that companies spend a lot of effort and money to make an impression. We've collected our favorite Super Bowl commercials as well as a couple commercials that won't be aired during the game but are clearly related to it.  From Tom Hiddleston in a Jaguar commercial to the Muppets being awesome, there's a lot to love here.  On a related note, if you're going to watch the Super Bowl and you see any gross and sexist ads, you can always tweet about them with the hashtag #notbuyingit to tell the advertisers you're not interested in the way they sell things. And hey, if you were only going to watch for the ads, accept this as your excuse to spend your day doing something else. Commercials start after the jump!

  6. If Movie Posters Had Used the Film’s Working Title

    Oh Hollywood

    While some of these are humorously ironic (Captain America: The First Avenger), kind of adorable (The Avengers), some of these titles are just so completely nonsensical that seeing them dressed up in serious font with serious images is outright hilarious.

    Plants use energy from the Sun through photosynthesis, and humans use energy from the Sun through things like solar panels. A new technique created by researchers at the University of Georgia allows humans to get electricity from plants by hijacking the photosynthesis process.

  8. Mom Tries To Explain The Matrix, Goes On Some Surprising Tangents

    we loled

    After watching this video of a mom trying to explain The Matrix, I'm convinced I must make my mom do the same. She's well-known for getting character names wrong when trying to describe a piece of media to me and I'm certain she'd be a YouTube hit. But I digress, Joe Nicolosi got there before me and his mom is a riot. (via HyperVocal) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  9. Agent Smith is Back, Has Job Shilling for GE Software

    Great Moments in Advertising

    I'm not going to leave you in suspense. There's no joke about humans being a disease, plague, cancer, or virus in here. They make a different reference, which I guess is fair, if less in character. Hugo Weaving, thank you for existing.
