    Was just looking for the release date of Matrix Reloaded when I saw the RRP of £26.99 ($29.99) - yes, it is a 2 disc set, but the "special features" sound very ordinary in the extreme - just a series of featurettes:

    Matrix-inspired design advertising
    The MTV Movie Awards Reloaded
    A look at the Matrix phenomenon
    Go behind the scenes with the cast and crew
    Enter the Matrix: Making of the ground-breaking video game

    no commentary tracks
    no proper documentaries
    no isolated score
    no dts

    how is that worth 2 dvds?

    I suppose we will have to wait for the re-release until we get anything decent!! :rolleyes: :(

    How many people do you think will buy it for £26.99?

    None.

    It's £15 (or there abouts) just about every where. It's not a great release, but I'm getting for the film.

    Yes but the point is that it is an inflated price for what is virtually a vanilla release!

    Just part of the Hollywood 'gouge' machine ... it's a rip-off but I suspect they'll sadly sell large numbers in spite of that. :eek:

    I agree Lex although it can be had for less than £26.99, this is still a high rrp for a plain vanilla release, especially once we have been milked for that a special edition will no doubt come out then a trilogy box set etc etc

    I also find it interesting that they're releasing the DVD so soon after its' first box-office run ... whatever happened to the 6 months or 1 year gap between cinema premiere and the VHS/DVD?

    The DVD market is much bigger than the cinema market these days so it's in their interest to get films transferred to DVD ASAP. This one will sell very well in the run up to Matrix:Revolutions not to mention the run up to Christmas.

    WB might not make many good films but they know how to get the most out of their one decent film franchise!
    I'm wondering when the hype-machine will get moving for Revolutions...

    Anyway no one is forcing you to buy this version, you could always wait a year or 2 and get the trilogy box-set with dts, extra features etc. which will probably come out for Christmas 2004 or 2005 :)

    Look at the length of time we've waited for the original Star Wars trilogy!

    Overall, I'm glad we can get most DVD's 6 months after the cinema run, not 7 years after the format has been available (and counting).

    I think New Line have the best aproach with LOTR where you can get the basic version in the summer, but they let you know the extended edition and limited edition version will be out 4 months later.
