I sure hope they sell these individually and not only as a set.

That will never happen. No one would buy the 3rd one!

I would if it were priced at $5 or under. :D

Love the 1st and really enjoyed Reloaded so I don't know that I'd go the individual release route or not if it were available.

I bought the movie only set on HD DVD because the Ultimate set didn't include Animatrix in 1080P. Hopefully they correct it this time.

I was a little worried when I saw the $130 MSRP, but this can be found for $70 through Warner Bros. DVD Shop, so sold! :D

Use the 30 Percent off code (ANWBTS), however you will have to combine it with at least one other item.

What was the original media for Animatrix? Was it made for broadcast TV? If so, why bother wasting the disk space to upconvert it rather than letting the players do so?

It was projected in 35mm at certain film festivals 5 years ago so I don't think a 1080P presentation is an unreasonable request. ;)

because upconverted material still is no were near as good looking as
real hd material.
why would being for broadcast tv be a factor.
plenty of stuff on tv that looks great on hdm.

i might only rebuy the first film and the animatrix if it was redone in hd.

then again, $70 for the whole thing is tempting

Depends of the source materal. "Final Flight of the Osiris" was shown shown in theaters before "Dreamcatcher" and it looked really good. There is definitely a Hi-Def source.

I can't vouch for the rest of the stories, but it is common practice to create these animations for theaters.

1080p should be an improvement.

Kinda wish I had my 2 hours back for Dreamcatcher though.

Yea!
Hope someone is foolish enough too break this out of the set & sell it!
(I've got "Matrix, The" in HD & the SD DVD Box; don't want anything else other than "Animatrix, The" on HDM)
