Blue pill or red pill?

Just finished watching the Matrix Trilogy on DVD over the past week. I only managed to watch the first movie from beginning to end ... but dozed off three times on average for Reload and the Revolution so that accounted for the week that I needed to finished them. Cut the philosophy crap, its just a simple story of good people versus bad machines (that sucks energy out of ordinary folks to keep itself running) and how the last bastion of good people tried to save their Zion from giant metallic squids with razor sharp tentacles from tearing them up to shreds. And well, the One ... the Savior who would save the day (or did he? I think I slept after Trinity died in Revolution ... so I have not finish the show after all... anyway) .... was a good closure to a typical hollywood plot. So what did I get out of it? Well, the fighting scenes were okay, Trinity is cool, Morpheus needs to fill up the gap between his front teeth .... say, I still remember the blue pill and red pill scene. Morpheus to Neo -... you take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes." - Life is never about choice. The only choice is about how you want to view the life you live and the situations you are in. Live in an illusion of happiness and normalcy, well at least you are happy. Live in the truth and you would probably echo Cypher -"I'm tired, Trinity. Tired of this war, tired of fighting... I'm tired of the ship, being cold, eating the same goddamn goop everyday...". Is all about what you choose to believe. ain't it?
