I bought it to test my player and spun it again last week. I have a person lined up to buy it, but I'll probably watch it again before I let it go. If I like the next two, I'll pick up the box set we all know will come out.

I had my Matrix DVD about a month before I even had my first player.

I hope I never 'kick' this addition.

Seriously? You've watched Mission to Mars over 100 times? Wow, how in the world can you sit through that movie 100 times. Once was enough for me.

Yep. I own it. Before I got a player too. It was lucky number thirteen, but the first DVD I watched when I got my player was "Halloween."
[list=1][*]L.A. Confidential: Special Edition[*]Ghostbusters: Collector's Series[*]There's Something About Mary: Special Edition[*]Suicide Kings: Special Edition[*]Robocop: Director's Cut (Criterion)[*]Alien: 20th Anniversary Edition[*]Aliens: Special Edition Director's Cut[*]Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Special Edition[*]The Silence of the Lambs (Criterion)[*]Go: Special Edition[*]Flesh for Frankenstein (Criterion)[*]Halloween: Restored Limited Edition[*]The Matrix: Special Edition[/list=1]

Wow. I just realized. In my first thirteen, I have two OOP Criterions (and one other) and the OOP "Halloween." Cool.

I heard that the Matrix was a cool movie, but I don't know. I haven't seen it and I'm not sure if I ever will.

I voted for the second option. I sold it before I was REAL big into dvds, about 2 1/2 years ago. I wish I still had it because now I have an awesome HT set-up and would like to see it on there. I will however be buying the inevitable boxset, if I can hold out long enough on the second two movies.

I don't own this now but I'm waiting for the Matrix trilogy boxset when ever that gets released.

I am waiting for "Reloaded" and "Revolutions" to come out on DVD so it can be released to a boxset, that's why I'm not buying the first Matrix dvd.

Exactly my thoughts on the matter, although i'm debating whether to pick up 'The Animatrix' or take a chance on this ever appearing with the rest in an Ultimate boxset of some sort?!

Ditto, and it's my favorite movie, but I know they're gonna redo the DVD for a Special Edition.

I owned Matrix and Revisited but sold it when the new Set was announced, and of course shortly after it was denounced. Hopefully a complete saga set will be sold sometime in the future.

Matrix Revisted does not include the movie. It's just some making-of things and stuff. So you want this one (or both), Ranger:



Come one everyone, I'm pretty sure there is a law that says if you own a DVD player, you MUST own The Matrix. If not you might as well throw the DVD player in the trash.

I don't own it and I have no plans to get it. I thought is was pretty crap, just another movie that relies on special effects.
