Check out ezydvd.com.au for R4 price.
www.movietyme.com Matrix Reloaded R1 at £17.99.
I order from them the new Iron Maiden dvd R1 for £9.99 plus free p&p whereas at cdwow its £13.99.
As Reloaded is Warner, there shouldn't be a dual language cover to worry about, so I would bet the cheapest will be DVD Soon, once they list it.
What about PLAY lads... don't we shop there anymore?
R1 £16.99 (ntsc ps at a nicker cheaper.... BARGAIN!!!)
I'm pretty disappointed by the confirmed extras for the Matrix sequel, 3 years ago they might have been cutting edge but times have moved on and films like Lord Of The Rings have shown that people have greater expectations, i'm also disappointed at Warners continued Anti-dts stance, on a cutting edge film like the Matrix Reloaded the choice of dts or dolby digital should be made available for consumers to choose.
All in all i'll still buy the film but i'm disappointed at whats been confirmed and the lack of dts sound options.
The direction seems to be at the moment, that the 'ultimate' version of many films is not the initial release, but many extra features are saved for a later 'special edition'. To me, this is a complete rip off to consumers, and DVD collectors, and I really think there should be legislation that film companies have to state if a second release is planned, which would at least give buyers the choice of buying the DVD now, or waiting for the 'special edition'.
By looking at those features I think it's almost certain that Warner will releaase a Box set with all three matrix which will be the 'ultimate' versions with loads fo special features.
Silver has said that he wants to release another version of the matrix with better picture quality so I wouldn't be surprised in in this box set a new version of The Matrix is there too. I agree it is a total rip off if they don't tell people. At leat with LOTR people have the choice to wait as they know about the extended edition. Althougth it is nice ot have the original version of the film on one DVD then the extedned 'Super' version so I will be buying both of The Two Towers.
While I completely agree with you on this, there are ways round it for the companies... all they have to do is say they're not planning a second release to the customers, then 6 months later, say, "oh, we found some more footage that just appeared, and we feel people should see it".
The only way to stop them from ripping us off, is to just not by the second 'special edition' release, but how many people do you know that will do this? I certainly won't
And yes, there's obviously going to be an 'ultimate edition trilogy box set' released with superb PQ and 5.1/6.1/7.1/dts sound. It will be criminal if WB don't provide this!
What would be the ideal kick up the a*se for the companies is for no one to buy the original versions! Of course, film fans will always buy the first release, in most cases, but wouldn't it be great if there was a worldwide consumers boycott of a major release such as Reloaded, just to show the film companies how we feel about being stitched up!
at 9.99 this would be over priced, it will sell by the shed load, but lets face it people are lemmings, by far the most disappointing film of the year will become the most disappointing DVD.
I agree, this is one film that was below average at best.
I'll save my money and spend it on something a little more worth while. A second hand pair of skidded-up underpants maybe.
A dts soundtrack, no matter how arousing it might be (I guess that's something we won't know), just couldn't polish up this turd enough to warrant a purchase
Matris: Reloaded - over hyped, over priced and over here.
Over-priced, I think its a crime to charge SRP £27 unless it is a special box set or a special BBC documentary or something... what the fudge are Warner thinking?
