    Without a doubt, "The Matrix" held the record for top-selling DVD for quite a while, until "Gladiator" came along. So the unusual DVD "Matrix Revisited" comes along and some people are wondering just what it is.
    If you were teetering on the edge of whether to buy it or not, consider this: one of the coolest easter eggs ever is on this DVD. A jukebox with 41 songs on it.
    Now if you appreciate the hunt, and don't want the surprise spoiled for easter eggs , then don't click here. Everyone else, have a look and size it up and decide for yourself, I think it's worth it if you dig the movie and special features in general.
    So what say you folks? Interested enough to buy or no?

    According to the mucho informative and good read "DVD Demystified", Matrix was the first DVD movie to pass the one million copy sold mark, which will be a lot more important for future "Who Wants to be a Millioniare" contestants than the latest best selling record holder [​IMG].
    BTW, it only took 2 years (from the time DVD hits retail) to have a first DVD million seller, in contrast, it took 11 years for VHS (Tom Cruise, Top Gun), 4 years for CD (George Michael, Faith).
    After reading the review, I may change my mind and break down and buy a copy of the Revisit.

    I saw this disk yesterday, picked it up and looked at it but put it back down. It was in a snapper by itself. I had also thought it would be available with the movie in a slipcase that could hold both snappers.

    I disdain "Easter Eggs," myself, but I've never quite understood the idea of not buying a particular title just because it contains one.
    Let's say, just for the sake of argument, that this disc didn't contain any easter eggs. The material available on the current disc as an easter egg isn't on this theoretical disc at all. Would you buy it then?

    And if you don't know that the easter egg is there, you won't know what you are missing. [​IMG]
    You are missing out on some really good DVDs, Steve. Not that I care, though. It's your choice. What happens if you buy a DVD, take it home and watch it and then find out that it contains easter eggs?

    Ok.. just got The Matrix: Revisited yesterday and it is absolutely excellent.

    I, as most DVD owners probably did, watched all the extras and behind-the-scenes on the original Matrix DVD so I thought what more could this offer me? But, I ordered it anyways... am I ever glad I did.

    First off there is a behind the scenes documentary that just keeps going on and on and on... I think it was well over two hours and may have actually lasted close to three. It delves into almost every scene and reconstructs the creative and productive process behind it and through it.

    Learn of all the official Matrix "value added" productions that are on going.. Animatrix, comic books, online shorts, Matrix 2 video game (which the W. brothers are intensely involved), etc.

    The hours long behind the scenes look is enough to jsutify my cost of admission... you really get inside the feelings and struggles, both mental and physical, that these actors endured as they sought to film a movie that seemed too good to be true and almost impossible.

    Buy it, you will not be sorry.

    The Matrix trailer is actually on the DVD hidden as a easter egg. It's full frame and DD2.0 only though. It's somewhere in the Jukebox area.

    So they finally put the trailer on a DVD and do it FULL FRAME?! For Chr**'s sake, Warner. Will you ever get it right?
    I hear the documentary is not anamorphic. [​IMG]
