    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 :thumbsdow

    They've had so many Matrix re-releases of late it's a joke.

    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.:smashin:

    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

    Not going to bother, waiting for the trilogy. Why should I fuel this stupid re-release business?

    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:clown: :devil: :laugh:

    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 :)
