The Matrix Collection official...10/14 - Page 3

post #61 of 774
Got the HD DVD set for $20 (thanks AVS Forum and Circuit City!!!), I sure wish these collections would do what they did for Die Hard - four discs, one meager sized case. I really like that combo case - of course, I am trying to fit 10 pounds of movies in a 5 pound sack, so...

I agree, that would be a major time-saver and general reducer of headaches for those who seek that sort of thing actively.

I myself have the deluxe box for Animatrix, as well as about a dozen or so anime sets with soundtrack CDs included--Jin-Roh SE, Spriggan, Boogiepop Phantom Ultra Edition, and Ghost in the Shell S.A.C.: Solid State Society LE come to mind at the moment. The only live-action flick in my possession with a soundtrack CD would be E.T. in the four-disc gift set.

(A slight correction, added late: I also have the deluxe set for The Scorpion King. The soundtrack CD it includes has three exclusive live tracks from a Godsmack concert, not found on the regular CD.)

I also have plenty of other soundtracks, including all of the Matrix series (except for the score from the first--I only have the rock collection).

As for the movie set on Blu-ray, I look forward to getting it any way I can. I skipped out on the HD-DVD version because I could see the format was dying, so this will have been worth my saving the money for.

How did U do that?!?!?

CC posted a $19.99 on their site at the time of release,[an obvious typo] and some claims that they got it for that price, even though CC sent out emails that they won't honor those orders.

Oh, back then. Yep. I do remember.

post #66 of 774
I decided to keep my HD DVD set since I'm keeping my player. I got the set for $40 through Amazon, which isn't bad, and they look fantastic. I figure that my player will last for another few years (kow) and most of my best HD rewatchable movies are in that format (Bourne, Riddick, Matrix, Batman Begins, 300, etc.). I have never had one hiccup with my A2 either, so I owe it that much.

Yes. It was originally available on its own, and in a box with the soundtrack CD (the version I own).

Cool, I'll wait till it comes out seperately then. If nothing else, I'm sure Netfix will rent it on it's own.

Wait. Why are there 5 BD cases on the sell sheet? If there are only 4 features printed on BDs. And what is 'The Matrix Experience'?

They will be identical in PQ, and since I couldn't care less about the extra stuff, I'm staying put..

From what I understood of the original press reelase, the "Matrix Experience" was the name for it on the DVD/HD DVD release, and it has been changed to what you see on the last two DVDs of the BD release.

I agree.

If they sell The Matrix separately I'll buy.

I will not pay for two movies I hate. Already did that with the Alien franchise set on DVD a while back and at the time I thought it was cool. But then I watched 3 and 4 again and will never do so in the future... a waste of money IMHO. I only like 1 & 2 in that series.

Using the online coupon, I ordered that and got it, with tax , for just a scratch over 70.

I'm really looking forward to replacing my DVD boxset....

The features on disc 6 were presented on separate platters in the DVD boxset, and yet they're on one disc here. So did Warners pad out the DVD boxset? Say it ain't so!

Still, they're following the same HD pattern as Blade Runner (movies on Blu, extras on SD DVD) and I can't say that I mind a whole lot, as long as the movies are in HD. It means that we get the set a little quicker and perhaps a little cheaper too.

Thank **** the Animatrix is in HD this time though.

But how many people like Matrix 2&3 and not 1?
post #80 of 774
I just hope the first MATRIX is in sync this time around.

On my A2, the picture on the HD-DVD version is slightly ahead of the sound. Very annoying and distracting in "bang-crash" action moments and sharp dialogue. GREAT image, but never one of my reference discs because of the sound issue.
post #81 of 774
I'm pretty sure the issue you describe is an HD DVD issue. It is for me, anyway.

I've had several HD DVD movies that would accumulate audio sync errors over the course of watching them. This has never happened to me on Blu-ray. I'm not trying to fan any flames here, just stating my observations.

Anyway, this is one of the reasons I'll be replacing my Ultimate Matrix set.
post #82 of 774
Perhaps it's a player issue or a disc issue?

Brandon
post #83 of 774
Actually, I've never noticed the "gradual drift". My HD-DVD copy of MATRIX (part one... the only one I watch) is out of sync from first frame to last. It's the only HD-DVD in my collection that has a sync issue--although it's admittedly not a huge HD-DVD collection 'cuz I knew it was a doomed format when I started collecting in November.

I've found other evidence on various forums that I'm not the only one seeing a sync problem with that first MATRIX disc. It's fairly well documented and acknowledged across various players. I just hope the Blu-Ray doesn't suffer the same fate, 'cuz it really distracts from the amazing picture.

On movies that would skip (a high %) on my HD-A3 the audio would start to be out of sync as well after the skipping/freezing.. Movies that didn't skip didn't have issues.

Weirdest thing happened with my order of this (and BoB) from WHV.
I ordered in mid August, but they are just now getting around to charging me?

I was sure they pre-auth'd when you ordered and then charged when they shipped.
Anyone else get charged recently for this purchase?

It makes me worry that they are up to their old tricks again...

They charged my card also. This is actually probably a good thing. Means that they're probably shipping this title early as they sometimes do. In this case they'd be shipping over 2 weeks early which is surprising, but since its a catalog title, its not that hard to believe. I'm hopefull that I'll receive mine on Monday or Tuesday. Thanks for posting because otherwise I would not have checked my credit card and not been on the lookout for the package. (warner usually doesn't send me the shipping confirmation/tracking till a couple days after they've shipped, sometimes after I've already received the movie)

Good to hear that I wasn't the only one and that this might be an indicator of shipping early.
You're welcome... I check all my financials every cpl of days online to insure there aren't any unauth charges (a holdover from working in Fraud for years).
post #88 of 774
I wasn't going to buy this due to the rather high price but since I got it for $60 with the amazon 3-for-2 sale last weekend I'm pretty happy now and excited to see these. I honestly don't think I have ever seen the 3rd movie and maybe not even all of the 2nd one.

In all likelyhood, Case 1: The Matrix BD and Digital Copy packaged together; Case 2: The Matrix Reloaded BD
Case 3: The Matrix Revolutions BD
Case 4: The Animatrix BD
Case 5: Both Extras DVDs packaged together.

I'm still trying to figure this one out. I can understand a lip sync error being introduced when the disc is authored, but one that incrementally gets worse with each replay of the disc....?!? I guess the probability is not identically zero that degradation due to oxidation could introduce the precise errors to the audio track alone (and over several iterations, even!) such that the disc would still play with pristine PQ, only introducing lip sync errors... Seriously, aside from any such degradation, either the disc has a lip sync problem, or it does not: it cannot be a gradual occurrence from the disc POV...
