I'm personally PUMPED for this blu-ray! I have wanted to own this damn movie on HD since I first got an HDTV (four years ago). When I got HD-DVD I had the opportunity to get a used Matrix HD-DVD set for $20. I passed because I don't want the damn sequels. Yes, I could just consider the $20 for the first movie (which I would gladly pay), but it always irked me I just had to get/own parts 2 and 3 in order to own the original in HD.

I will never watch the sequels again. I actually did revisit them about a year ago, so I gave them another chance, but still hate them. The Matrix now ends for me at the end of the first movie.

So I'm pumped to get this on Tuesday for $25. And that's still $5.00 more than I could buy the entire HD-DVD set for right now ($17 + shipping on inetvideo), but I will gladly do so. Hopefully it sports a new transfer, but I do like the book-like packaging on this new blu-ray disc.

I have the HD-DVD set and I don't like the Matrix enough to get the Blu Ray while still in possession of it.

To be honest, I never really was a fan of the original. I'll definitely be passing on this (although this movie's probably gonna look ridiculously amazing in high-def).

I picked up the Blu-Ray box set from Amazon.ca for $40 when it was on sale last month. I heard this new release is just a repackaging of the first movie.

I was right. It's the same disc with new packaging. Here's a review:

I am ok with that. The original blu had two defects...

Wow, thanks for the tip! Been wanting that set for awhile and that's a great price.

I got the Blu-ray box set for Christmas, so I'm all set. I actually like the sequels, flaws and all. I also really dig The Animatrix which, unlike the previous HD-DVD set, is in full 1080P hi-def glory!

I got the box set, even though I probably will never watch the sequels.:lol:

Yah I almost bit on that. I actually read about it on High Def Digest but someone mentioned something about a standalone blu in the same thread. When I saw that was coming out Tuesday for a few dollars more, I decided against the HD-DVD set.

what defecs?

Parts 2 and 3. :banana:

For anyone looking to get the HD-DVD set, an Amazon seller has the Ultimate Matrix Collection for $19.99 plus shipping. That beats the inet video deal.

I may end up eating my words and getting this Ultimate HD-DVD set. I have yet to see Animatrix and I have wanted to check that out. That makes it justifiable, right? Right?

Ugh.

Legit seller, too. They offered this deal once before and I missed out on it.

The Animatrix is awesome. It's better than the sequels, that's for sure.

I'll be getting the first one but prolly won't bother with the rest on Blu.
