The Ultimate Matrix Collection slice

Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day is The Ultimate Matrix Collection on Blu-ray for $26.99 (which is 58% off).  Like all Gold Box Deals, it’s only good for today.  Remember, if you spend over $25 you get free shipping.  For what’s included in the box set, hit the jump.  I own this set and it’s loaded with extras and special features.

This definitive seven-disc Blu-ray set features all three films in “The Matrix” trilogy, as well as the companion piece “The Matrix Revisited” and the best-selling “The Animatrix”, plus five entirely new Blu-ray discs packed solid with brand-new supplemental materials that encompass every aspect of the Matrix universe, including two new audio commentaries on each film, “Enter the Matrix” video game footage, 106 deep-delving featurettes and much more.

Written Introduction by the Wachowski Brothers
Commentaries by:
- Philosophers: Dr. Cornel West and Ken Wilber
- Critics: Todd McCarthy, John Powers and David Thomson

    im good with just owning the first movie

      same here. The rest is garbage.

    The first movie remains as fresh and vivid as the day it was released eleven years ago, but those sequels- SHEESH!

    The Wachowski’s should have made just one three-hour sequel, dropped all the nonsensical extra stuff like the Animatrix and that video game, and concentrated on the actual Matrix rather than on Zion, and chances are, that would’ve been a great follow-up the awesome original.

    It’s a shame how ‘…Reloaded’ (bloated and indulgent) and ‘…Revolutions’ (anemic and inconclusive) turned out, there was real scope to continue that story in a very substantive way, but alas…

    The Wachowski Bros share a lot with George Luca$. Their first movie was very innovative and became a classic in the cinematic history. It was their first and last good movie. All what follows after was garbage.^^
