11. The 'red dress' scene has multiple sets of twins in The Matrix

This scene takes place in a training simulation, not the Matrix itself. To sell the idea that we’re inside a lazier/dumbed-down program, the Wachowskis cast multiple sets of identical twins along with other similarly-dressed dopplegangers, the effect was intended to create this feeling of an entire world built via copy-and-paste.

Twin Pines Mall Become Lone Pines Mall In Back To The Future

When Marty first goes to meet Doc Brown at Twin Pines Mall we clearly see that it’s called… “Twin Pines Mall”. After Marty comes back from his adventures in 1955 to see Doc Brown get shot up, the sign reads “Lone Pine Mall.”

Why did it go from twin to lone? The land that the mall is on was owned by Old Man Peabody, remember that? Now remember when Marty time traveled back in time and crashed into their barn? Well, when Marty drves away with Peabody firing a shot gun at him he runs over one of a pair of pine trees in Peabody’s front yard

It is still stuck at the bottom of the door, just as it was at the ending of Alien.
