According to this story, the upcoming 10-disc Matrix Trilogy DVD box set is going to include commentary tracks on all three films by "professional critics who hated [the] films."

Damnit. That's a terribly clever idea on the Wachowskis' part: I have to admit that I'm actually tempted. (I mean, I won't buy the set, but I might actually think about renting it just to listen to the hostile commentary.)

Yeah, that's going on the rental list for sure. :)

Yeah, I think the whole seven-discs-of-extras-for-a-three-disc-series thing is a tad excessive, myself, but then I'm not a Matrix fanboy.

On the other hand, if they put out a 10-disc box in which the other seven discs were all the movies that The Matrix lifted from, that'd be sort of cool. Disc Four could be The Terminator; Disc Five, Akira; Disc Six, Blade Runner; Disc Seven, Enter the Dragon; Disc Eight, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly; Disc Nine, TRON; Disc Ten, all those Gap Khaki ads.

But nothing so entertaining will happen in the real world, though there is apparently going to be a more expensive version of the 10-disc set with a bust of Neo. Woo-hoo. I think the WETA folks who started putting sculptures in the Lord of the Rings collector's sets have a lot to answer for.
