Do you own The Matrix?

I'm curious how many people here own it. Any version of it. Think this will give an idea of how well the BO take will be.

You're going to estimate the sequel's box office based on how many people on THIS FORUM own it? This is the lunatic fringe. Not a very scientific poll.

I had it, but then I watched it and didn't really care for it, so I sold it on eBay.

I'm not opposed to owning it; just haven't gotten around to buying it yet (saw it in the theater). Maybe I'll wait till all 3 are in a box set or something.

The Matrix was the "killer app" of DVD - it's the film a lot of people bought DVD players to watch.

So we can thank The Matrix DVD for helping to speed the public consumption of DVD technology.

Now more DVDs are coming out in Pan and Scan, with crappy features and prices are going up.

Thanks, The Matrix. Thanks a #$%&ing LOT!

Just got it on a whim this week: $11.99 at Best Buy + free movie cash was a deal I couldn't pass up when I saw it in the store.

No, but I have been able to take my brother-in-law's copy (one of his first purchases) for extended periods of time whenever the urge to watch it hits me.

I have watched it over 100 times, I just finished watching "Mission To Mars" for the 100+ time. I'm addicted lets face it,
I hope I never 'kick' this addition.

I answered no because I didn't like it. But my wife just ordered a copy a few days ago, so it'll be sitting in the collection soon anyway.
