Use of 'idem' or Latin meaning same name

Postby skippdiddly » Sat Jun 08, 2013 11:15 pm

I am a novice wanting to use a simple Latin phrase that means 'of the same name'.

Here's my sentence which I'm certain is incorrect: Like the projected reality of the matrix, idem movie ...

What I want is to compare is the reality represented in an array (matrix) and the reality represented in the movie the 'Matrix'. Is there a way to say in this sentence 'the movie of the same name (or forementioned word)?

Thank you for any suggestions.

Why not go with an English word instead: the eponymous movie?
