For the second blog, write a response (250-500 word) to The Matrix. You may use any of the readings or anything else you know (other films and etc.) to frame your ideas. You may discuss one or two themes or ideas you saw or read about, ask questions that you would like to find the answers to, or anything else as long as you do not summarize the plot except to illustrate a point. Be sure to read and respond to classmates' posts that you find interesting!
