Not sure myself, Might wiat until the end of the year and get the Trilogy Box Set
I'm holding out for the trilogy box set too... only another 13 or 14 months to go!
nope not me. I have the original disc, the revisited as well. I`m also gonna get the animatrix. that should be enough....until the moster trilogy
Depending on the spec, I might
Nope, but then again, I found the film to be extreamly overated.
Depends how 'SPECIAL' it is....and it's gonna have to be pretty damn special.

Ok, so Disk 1 is the same as the original release.
Disk 2 is just a souped up Matrix Revisited.
My favourite movie of all time but it's just not worth anything to me. I'll stick with my R4 and pass on that
They've had so many Matrix re-releases of late it's a joke.
From the look of that spec then I will say no.
just on a side note i see in my local hmv they have the matrix/the matrix revisted box set for 16 euro(about £10 sterling).
i`m happy enough with my box set and wouldn`t cough up for a few extra`s on the revisted disc.
I don't even own the Revisited disk. Never wanted it. Don't want to ruin the magic
BTW, the 7 essays and articles that they've stuck as DVD-ROM features are available for free at www.whatisthematrix.com anyway
Jesus, is this the most re-released DVD in history?!?!?!
no that would probably be Army of Darkness on Anchor Bay
Once is enough. The 3 film boxed set might be worth it in 2007....
Not me thats for sure. Forget the Matrix who gonna buy this one. Once again it won't be me, Oh Baby.
Not going to bother, waiting for the trilogy. Why should I fuel this stupid re-release business?
What the hell is that? EXTREME edition?
I already have the Ultimate Edition with the metallic cardboard cover.
What is going to be new on that??????
The new T2 box contains a How TO... guide. Allegedly it's sponsored by the RSPCA as a humane option to all those who got a dog for Christmas but really didn't want one for their life. There's also talk of an SE of The Thing which is also allegedly recommended by the RSPCA for potential pets as presents buyers
When is T3 beling released?
Apparently, "The War Begins July 2", but that's in the US (maybe Mr Bush takes these movie trailers too seriously).
The UKs release date is 01 August 2003.
Come on Arnie, you can do it, we all want you to be great again.
I've never though much of The Matrix picture quality- anyone think the same?
Wonder if the new version has more detail/sharper...
Do you have the R1?
There were reports on Bullets 'n' Babes that the R4 had better PQ than the R1.
I have the R4 and it looks good to me
I borrowed the R1 and the R2 (R2 cut)
Overall I thought the PQ is poor compared to Fifth Element/Starship Troopers etc..
I've not seen Starship Troopers, and only have the Fifth Element R2 to compare it to which I've only seen once.
I don't think Matrix R4 is the best transfer I've seen, there are certainly far better ones, but it's a very good transfer IMO. There is some grain but there is also good detail in the dark scenes which show up great via RGB. I've not seen the R2; as you say, it's cut, so I avoided it like the plague. I presume it would be the same as the R4 though because it's also PAL ...
I do recall the Fifth Element R2 being a better transfer as the colours were much richer, contrast was better, and the image seemed crisper (may be my selective memory though). Remember though that The Matrix is a much darker movie with few brightly lit scenes and I think the murkiness via the light tint was intentional
