    I just watched Matrix on DVD and it seems to have quite a green color push. Is this just my DVD or are all the DVD's like this.
    Thanks

    First, this should be in the Software section.

    Second...to answer your question, the Wach Bros add a green tint to everything inside The Matrix, and a blue tint to everything in the real world.

    Hope this answers your question.

    (Thread moved.)

    Yes, whatever you do, do not use this DVD to try and re-adjust your colors on your TV set.

    I believe it is supposed to be this way, as others have stated.

    Funny, how no one noticed this in the movie theater. "Hey projectionist, turn the green down!"

    Actually, a lot of people DO ask for projectionists to adjust the color and contrast. How little some know about our friend, celluloid.

    Wow, talk about a flashback! Tim, this is actually one of those 'legendary' questions that has been asked by uncounted numbers of people on this forum over the years. The green tinge is definitely intentional.

    Next thing, people will be asking about the flames at the top of the frame in Saving Private Ryan. [​IMG]

    It's funny, I didn't notice it when I saw The Matrix in the theater, but noticed it on the DVD (but was already aware of it via reviews I read). I sure as heck noticed it during The Matrix Reloaded too, it almost seemed to go too green in a few scenes (greener than the original). *shrug* People will probably be asking this question about TMR when it comes out... be prepared [​IMG]

    Ah, the memories. Also, is the original Star Wars available on DVD? And, remember, we won't buy it if it's not "anamorphic." [​IMG]

    And why hasn't this been addressed yet?...

    We must do everything we can to stop this DIVX format and the evil Circuit City before it destroys dvd forever! [​IMG]

    Rick Sharp is the devil!


    Oh wait, wha.., oh shit, how...how long have I been asleep what year is it?

    What do you mean "it's all over, we won."? Get the hell outta here, when? Why wasn't I told about this? [​IMG]

    Well, that's good, nice work. Hey, does The Matrix still come out on DVD this week? I sure am excited about it.

    Wha, what do you mean "it's been on dvd for 4 years now."!?

    Traffic is NOT a disc to adjust your set to either!

    And now we can add nemesis to that list too. The scene with the Argos (or whatever they called Piccard's midlife crisis compensation vehicle.)
