Will.i.am a satanist. You're a puppet in the matrix of freemasons and satan worshipping secret societys. How about that Masonic compass and protractor in your bad boys movie. And dressing your kids like girls. You're a disgusting human being but I'll pray for you.

Even though i love some of your work, this video shows how full of yourself you really are by undermining keanu's excellent role along with the brothers. Instead you got a shitty feature movie featuring yourself in the shitty 90's CGI wild west. The brothers didn't pitch you the idea of the matrix in that obnoxious way, that's just your ego trippin' on dat phat bank account. Who can blame you? Who can say that they had Steven Spielberg by the balls? No one but you.

There’s so many people who don’t know that the matrix was really for Will Smith. I tell everybody I know this. I’m so glad that he finally broke it down how and why he turned it down. I think if any of us heard that pitch we would’ve turned it down too. He’s so cool I love how he can add humor about it.

The Matrix is one of my favorite films of all time and I have watched it probably at least 10 times. I think the role of Neo needed a quiet, spritual, wide-eyed innocence that Keanu embodied beautifully. Even though it was an "action film" there was a deeply spiritual component that the late 90's Will Smith did not embody. The Matrix most definitely would have been a different film with Will Smith as Neo. Also, I cannot for the life of me see Val Kilmer as Morpheus! Laurence Fishburne is Morpheus, period. Finally, I think people go through "cold periods". Perhaps any movie that Will Smith did during that time would have stuggled, which means The Matrix could have flopped, there would have been no trilogy and the Wachkowskis career would have been done. Thanks for helping the movie succeed by not taking the role!

Well it's weird because the Wachowskis haven't done any other good movies just the first Matrix. I like this video because I'm 43 and have been addicted to this conspiracy point of view for a long time which is boring to me now just as a lot of new content is boring to me although I enjoyed that greatest showman movie- its not like I'm some snob asking for that much but it's nice to know that inside Hollywood they don't have it all figured out even if they are basically giving us government military commercials that are just really entertaining. We are on the other end of The Matrix where it's just sucky to be stuck in this computer Matrix. Hopefully we'll get bored and actually create a future instead of consume one.

I think if you would have made the Matrix it would have turned out to be a good movie. Think about it the reboot .. Well it wasn't broken so you can't fix it. But it will definitely be cool to see Play a scene out of The Matrix . Think about it the.time being era. everything you throw up when in the basket you could have did the Mason one hand free throw from the foul line you going to make it in the basket
