In today's Washington Post, Hank Steuver essays about The Matrix, and also brings in mention of some of the other recent blockbuster films which delve into philosophy, metathinking, meme creation and "the superior feeling that nobody gets the [story] but you."

The Harry Potter children -- a rabid generation of meta-consumers, far too smart for their own good -- write long, complaining reviews to one another when each page of their favorite Potter novel has not been translated verbatim to the screen.

Well... (taking exception to his use of the term "children") yes, we do. And, IMHO, there's nothing wrong with that.
