    The Matrix - More 10 Disc SE Boxset Info Surfaces!!!

    I posted about this once before, but more news and specs have surfaced about the box set. This news is for Region 2, but expect Region 1 to be very similar in the details. Even for just casual fans of the series, it looks like it's going to be an ungodly boxset. Here's the news from Zeta Minor and HMV.
    HMV is listing a ten-disc Matrix Megaset, for release on December the 6th. This seems to tie in with information that's been circulating for a while, but HMV's listing adds some credence to the rumours. The set will also contain a 20-page softcover booklet. HMV's RRP is £44.99.

    The ten discs seem to be:

    1 - The Matrix - With All-New Transfer & Audio Commentary

    2 - The Matrix Revisited – Original Version With Behind-The-Scenes Footage

    3 - Matrix Reloaded Extended Version – New Cut With 55 Minutes Of New Footage Inserted Back Into The Film

    4 - Matrix Reloaded Revisited – All New Interviews, Scene Dissections And More!

    5 - Matrix Revolutions – Original Cut With Audio Commentaries

    9 - The Burley Man Chronicles – The People Behind The Matrix Discuss Their Work

    10 - The Zion Archive – A Tour Of Matrix Design Concepts, Storyboards & Drawings

    Re: The Matrix - More 10 Disc SE Boxset Info Surfaces!!!

    I'll most likely skip this when it comes out. I didn't find any of the extras particularly riveting on the regular versions we already have. I'd consider buying the extended version of RELOADED as a seperate disc. I thought this was the weekest of the three movies, and maybe it would benefit from having the scenes of what was going on with Niobe cut into the film.

    I'm getting to the point of real aggravation with all of these special and extended editions of DVDs. I can't think of how many basic DVDs I've bought that have come out with better editions later on. It makes me want to stop buying DVDs on first release and wait the year or two for the extended versions with the four hours of bells and whistles. Why they don't just put them out this way in the first place is beyond me. (Other than the obvious reason which is to get the fans to buy the movie twice). It used to be the other way around where they'd release the loaded versions first, then remove all of the extras when they dropped the price.

    I'm not so sure about the set yet..

    I would really want the extended editions of the movies, but I don't need all the behind the scenes footage. There's no way I would ever watch it all anyway. If they had some extra episodes of the Animatrix in there, that would probably sway me.

    btw: does anynone know what £44.99 equals to in US dollars?

    Around $82.00, so it would likely be around $60.00 or so, the first week of release. If you shop around and get in on pre-orders and the like.

    I think to purchase and watch this box set would be the ultimate torture for me.

    I heard there's an 11th disc with clips of the Wachowski Bros. drinking champagne on a yacht laughing their A's off while talking about all the people they ****ed off from Matrix 3.

    Yeeeeow, this sounds crappy. I liked the first two a lot but the third one sucked, and that seems like way too much extra crap. I'll pass on this set.
