If the rumoured remaster of The Matrix ever comes out, and looks anything like as good then its a definite re-purchase.


Oh it's happening. Joel Silver has demanded it happen, and it was the reason the planned SE in late 2002 got cancelled (which as far as specs went, wasn?t much of an SE anyway, Silver said in an interview then they wanted to do better supplements wise and strike a new D5 master for the film).


The question now is, will a new transfer/mastering job for the first film be available to the public on its own individual release, or made exclusive to the planned mega set? I fear the latter.


I love the first film, and I certainly liked Reloaded a lot, but I have come to resent the second film a little bit given how it made a lot of false promises about where it was all heading. Now, Reloaded seems so pointless sitting in my collection without Revolutions beside it, and I have no intention to let the third film sit on my shelf.


If a remastered release of the first one remains exclusive to the big trilogy set, then I shall stick to the 1999 disc and wait for HD-DVD before buying it again. No amount of extras featuring Beavis and Butthead talking about how they used the ladybird book of philosophy to form the story is going to make me buy a special edition box set. :) :green:

Buy Revolutions and send some of the others to Netflix queue.


I think I would asess the new Matrix boxed SE when it came out and if better, eBay the 3 current discs and replace it. Did this with the 2 LOTR films; enjoy the first release then permenantly move to the EE sets. Maybe we're Tolkien snobs, but I can't imagine choosing to watch the theater version over the EEs, they are just so darn good.

This is a bit OT, but I suppose this thread has an 'enjoy by' date anyway.


We decided to watch the 3 Matrix movies in order, starting with the first one last night. I haven't seen the original since Reloaded came out and once again was blown away by it, probably the most enjoyable viewing since I saw it in the theater.


It was interesting to see the hints and foreshadowing of what's to come. It was surprising to see the pivotal 'choice' concept introduced only minutes into the first movie, when Neo is late for work (again), his boss presents him with two choices for his future in the company. Clearly this was the concept they wanted to drive home. More obviously is the Oracle's mention of the choice (vs the accident of breaking the vase), indicating as they expound upon in the next movie that the Oracle can't see beyond the choices people will have to make. Neo's choice to re-enter the Matrix to save Morpheus.


I also was thinking back to the article I read on the 'net which was someone's attempt to sum up the entire story of the trilogy in one neat package. In this article the author mentions that he believed Neo was infected with a program by the Oracle by the cookie...which does make sense.


And of course the very last line of the first movie, on the phone talking to the machines, is about choice:


...I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries, a world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

Interesting points, Ed. I've been meaning to go back and watch the original Matrix now that all the movies are out.

Do you have a link to this article by chance? I'd like to read it.
