What's the best scene in The Matrix? The lobby shoot-out, the helicopter escape, the rooftop bullet-dodging scene? Sure, those had the 12-year-old me bouncing up and down on the couch (figuratively; I was a very sedentary child). But the parts that I remember really tweaking my developing nerd glands were the 'training programmes' - the virtual rooms outside of the Matrix proper, where you could pick out guns (and stylish PVC trench coats), practice jumping the gaps between skyscrapers and leap about learning Kung Fu. It was this use of film's technology that made me think that I wanted to live in the future, sentient machine apocalypse be damned.
