major players including Link, Merovingian, Morpheus, Neo and Trinity. Similarly, Ships is a series of production drawings of the various craft used in the trilogy. They include many ships I didnít even know had names. Matrix fans who can identity the following should really get out more: Ganesha, Mjolnir, Novalis, Shiva and Vishnu. Machines are production sketches of industrial-looking equipment like the Digger, the Docbot, the Garbage Truck, and the Sentinels. Most interesting are the Set sketches, which also include some photos. Many of the sketches rise to the level of art. Some are a bit small, and I wish there was a way to zoom in on them.

The Media of the Matrix is broken up into three sections, one for each film. There are trailers and TV spots for all the films, with music videos available for the first two. Many of the trailers are full-screen, which is a bummer, but at least theyíre spotlessly clean.

So much of the Matrix films were done on computer. But we only see the final product, not the hundreds of computer simulations and preliminary CGI sequences that came before. Rave Reel remedies that oversight, with a 9-minute montage of early stage computer work. Itís pretty nifty, but itís set to that horrible music from the rave scene.

Exclusive DVD-ROM Features: What happens when you pop the disc into your PC?

The DVDs containing the Matrix trilogy remind you to insert its 5-inch plasticity into your computer, at which point youíll be magically transported to a website with additional photos, archives, comics and other Matrix completist crap.

Since you canít see any DVD-ROM material without an InterActual player, you must download that first. The InterActual skin has been tailored for The Matrix and it looks cool.

The DVD material is broken up into four sections:

The Matrix Online Game takes you to a Warner Bros. website where you can pre-order the new Matrix game which comes out in January 2005.

Matrix Online takes you to whatisthematrix.warnerbros.com. There youíll find piles of Matrix stuff, including Volume 2 of the Matrix comic.

Enter the Matrix Game just took me to the Warner Bros. main website, so Iím not sure what that does, but according to the studio, this content should be up by the time this collection is released on December 7th.

But the big deal DVD-ROM extra is the Bonus Commentary by Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and various other members of the cast and crew. Too bad this is only available to those with DVD-ROMs.

Parting thoughts

Itís fair to say that every frame of footage that has ever been shot regarding The Matrix is included on these ten DVDs. Itís also fair to say that if Warner Home Video finds another way to release Matrix related product on DVD, the videophile community will storm the studio with pitchforks and torches. The set itself is exhaustive and exhausting with so much behind-the-scenes info that watching the whole thing should count towards film school credit. However, there is a lot of great stuff here and only occasionally does any of it cross the line into bloatware. So, if youíre a big fan of the trilogy, an online retailer will sell you a copy for the surprisingly reasonable price of around $60. For them, itís well worth it. Those who prefer their DVDs contain no more than 100 featurettes, stick with the individual discs. Highly recommended to fans.

As soon as they're uploaded, I'll put up pictures of the differences of transfers of the first Matrix...the old DVD, and the new one
And trust me, it is very nice now, and looks like it was made at the same time as the sequels.

Yeah, the new transfer matches Reloaded and Revolutions now. The original Matrix DVD had a blue-gray tint to it.

wait i need an explanation of the actual case holder for the dvds... how does it hold the disk..i saw the side of thedvds and it looks like its is dvd into four dvd cases..one is THE MATRIX, THE MATRIX RELOADED, THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS, THE ANIMATRIX, and a last one that i can't read cause the picture is blury. i am guessing that the Revisited disks will be with their corresponding movies....so that takes care of 6 disks...the animatrix..takes care of 7...then we have 3 left..which i am guessing they will put on the last one dvd case..... so am i right???

i would think they would put the movies together, matrix and animatrix, reloaded and revisited, then have the revisited disks together with the other three disks. and they will probably put 2 to a case, cause it's easier and cheaper.

Man, I pciked it up yester day and it is awesome. The extras are great for all three films, and they ahve all the trailers and tv spots for all three movies. If you are a matrix fan, I recommend you buy iy, and sell the other matrix dvd's cause it is badass.
