Now's your chance to spend $130 on Matrix DVDs

Next Story

Fuji let loose some new cameras today. Maybe.


This is timely for me, actually; I just watched a 720p version of The Matrix a couple days ago and was completely surprised by how well it holds up. Fantastic movie. Of course, the next two were pretty booboo, but to balance out this enormous boxed set they’ve included the great Animatrix and something like 35 hours of additional features. I’d be interested in finding out more about their huge highway setup for Reloaded, but many of the effects (revolutionary at the time) were let out of the bag long ago for Discovery channel documentaries and such. It costs a bill and a half with taxes.

There’s a full seven discs for you to waste your life with. Clicky the link below for the full features set.
