Again really the same. The R1
version of The Matrix has an animated chapter selection screen and some
DVD-ROM trailers, the R4 version doesn't have these, but it does have a Dolby
Digital trailer and in my book the DVD trailers sucked so the R4 version
nudges across the line here also. The rest of the extras are the same.
Cast & Crew Notes: Like it says.
Audio Commentary 1: The first audio
commentary features Carrie Anne-Moss (Trinity), John Gaeta (VFX) &
Zach Staenberg (Editor). This track is encoded in Dolby Digital 2.0. I
have to admit that it is not the best commentary but has some good
technical details. Carrie Anne-Moss is pretty silent throughout.
Audio Commentary 2: Music Only Score
with commentary by Don Davies (Composer). He is very informative also. He
speaks in sections without music.
Making Of Feature: This is a 30
minute HBO making of about The Matrix and is quite entertaining and a damn
sight better than those short 5 minutes crap fest you can get on other
2 Hidden Featurette's: There are 2
hidden featurette's on this disc. You need to find them by looking for the
red pills in the menus. They are entitled "What is the Concept"
& "What is Bullet Time"
"Follow The White Rabbit"
Featurette: This has to be the coolest feature. When you enable this
feature you watch the movie as normal and then at various points
throughout the movie a little white rabbit pops up and you press you enter
key on your remote. Once you press the enter key a little featurette pops
up and you can see how that scene was made. After the featurette ends the
movie continues from the point you left it at. All up around 20 minutes of
DVD ROM Content: There are several
features on the DVD ROM content. The biggest feature is the website on the
disc as well as other little games and trivia.
