I rarely post here anymore but I cant help with the greatest day for hi-def one day away. I know many people have been passionate over hi-def for years on this board and Im more excited about tomorrow than the day i actually brought my hd-dvd and blu-ray players home! Wow we should see many hi-def player purchases because of the matrix and pirates. Not to mention 3 other marque titles coming out in the same week! Im like a kid on xmas eve right now. Going to make a midnight walmart run to try and snag these copies asap!


No im not worried the bd version of matrix will/could be better. Ive already resigned myself to the fact that i will most likely own both versions sooner or later. Tomorrow is the first day i can honestly say hi-def has arrived in full force!

I got the Matrix set today, and I have the say that I would be highlt surprised if they will look better on BR. They are very sharp and have a great detail to them. I just watched a few scenes from the 1st movie and it looks sharper and more detailed than the other 20+ HD movies I have. None of the softness that the 99% of other HD movies have. Now I just can't wait to see PoTC, once amazon sends it along with Apocalypto. HD heaven this week.

dont have a hd-dvd player for matrix, and i only wanted the first movie. the lobby shootout should be amazing. hopefully warner gives this movie the specs it deserves: bd50, uncompressed audio.


on the 2nd movie i only liked the highway scenes and scenes with monica belluci. the neo vs smiths scene looked too fake (along with everything in revolutions).

Amazon shipped my POTC today, was going to try to get them early but they werent worth the extra $12 I would have to pay over amazon.

The lobby shootout looked and sounded absolutely amazing. The Neo dodging the bullets on the rooftop gave me the chills, I cranked that sucker up louder than ever on my lunch break. Perfect transfer in my book.

I've got a boatload of BDs/HD DVDs/Clothing coming from Amazon on Wednesday. No doubt this is the biggest high def week yet. My UPS guy isn't going to be too happy though.
