Speaking of which, I just saw Matrix on DVD a few weeks ago. It not only
has the movie, but a copy of the movie, with the sound lowered, and
commentary from three people involved in the movie (the woman who played
'Trinity' and a couple of the production and effects guys) on each
scene, effect, etc., PLUS it has 'The Making of the Matrix'. DVD is the
BOMB. I gotta get one of those myself....
