The Matrix and Office Space were released in 1999 - thus eligible to be nominated to the National Film Registry. Both films have their own particular brand of rabid fans. Deservingly, these movies are mashed-up in to this funny video by Askel at MttM (Movies for the Masses).
Do you think 'The Matrix' or 'Office Space' belong on the National Film Registry? If so, send an email of support for either film (or another one that is meaningful to you) to Donna Ross at the Library of Congress: firstname.lastname@example.org

I realized where every romantic comedy comes from — what everyone is trying to achieve. It's the most romantic, touching... If I think about it too long, I'll cry. It's just so simple.
Of the movies she mentions four are on the National Film Registry:
Network, City Lights, Annie Hall, and The Exorcist.
