The Animatrix review, of sorts…

by on Apr.02, 2003, under General News

The great folks at Warner Home Video sent me a “preview” DVD of The Animatrix, the set of 9 anime-style and CGI shorts set in the world of The Matrix and act as a prelude to The Matrix Reloaded. It’s sort of an extended commercial for the true DVD, which comes out June 3rd. But all I can say is WOW! The anime segments remind me of the styles of the best anime features, and the realism of the CGI rendering – these characters look REAL. Even the case it came in is cool – the DVD pops out of the top when you pull the index card down! The DVD will also include commentary and features on the 7 directors plus more. Did I forget to say the WHV people are wonderful? (Maybe they’ll send me a full copy to review… 🙂 (P.S. I’m experimenting with including the Amazon.com images…let me know if it is too much…)
