Here is a great example of the "evolution" of The Matrix on disk over the years. The UHD looks phenomenal given we can't experience the WCG and HDR from a camera capture. The BD remaster looks a little blown out (and the camera probably only adds to it) which might be a result of the HDR transfer down to SDR. It probably wasn't given as much attention. But I imagine it still looks great compared to the last BD release. It's shocking how much green they added to the 2008 release. You can even make out the red safety on the gun in the new shots.

This is one of several reviews that have come in. Then general consensus is a 5-star release.

The big highlight is that the aggressive color grading seen on the old BD has been toned way down and a more natural coloring is allowed to emerge. This color grading effect should be maximized even further on the 4k version which supports the HDR and importantly the wider color gamut.

I implemented a mod that supports Google's reCAPTCHA. We'll see if that helps any!

I keep changing the security questions but they keep getting around it. Must have a human handler from time to time.

Price has dropped to $24.99 on Amazon. Was originally above $40.

Just went up for preorder at Amazon:

Yeah, I'm sure it'll end up on Netflix someday and be available on Vudu for the digital copy. However, the quality comparison is not even close. Netflix 4K at most is 15-18mbps. Standard bluray is around 20-30mbps and UHD bluray is upwards of 80-100mbps.

And streaming sound is always lossy and equivalent to DVD quality. Although Vudu now supports Atmos, but I believe it's a special extension of DolbyDigital+ for streaming with metadata to place certain sounds. Underneath it's still a lossy format, unlike the majority of blu-ray disks.

Hmm. My girlfriend hasn't seen all of them yet. Maybe we should wait for this release (if they end up doing them all).

Keep in mind you need a 4K blu-ray player and a TV capable of 4K and HDR for the full benefit. However, the regular 1080p blu-ray included is also getting a remaster from the new scan so it will hopefully be an improvement over the already excellent blu-ray.

It's official The Matrix is getting a 4K HDR release in May with a newly 4K scanned negative and Dolby Atmos sound-mix upgrade! The new 4K remaster is being supervised by director of photography Bill Pope.

Full press release:

No word on the sequels yet but I would imagine they (and possibly The Animatrix) will follow later in the year if the release is successful.

Pretty sure it's a bot, they have been breaking both the captcha and security questions somehow.
