Get your Matrix here…

by Suw on May 27, 2003

I was looking for Matrix stuff on Slsk the other day (although I didn't find anything worth getting), and was quite surprised to see a file of the Matrix Reloaded for download. I didn't really believe that it was actually the Matrix Reloaded though, so I ignored it. Not that I would have downloaded it even if I had believed it, cos I want that full-on cinema experience rather than to watch some crappy pirated copy playing jerkily on a computer that can't really handle it. But according to the Beeb it's not a crappy pirated copy that's doing the round, but a copy taken from a film print complete with surround sound. Someone somewhere's quick off the mark.

I think, though, that there's an upside to all this. The Matrix Reloaded was released worldwide two weeks ago to avoid piracy, and I think that's a good thing. I really hate it when you have a film released in America months before it comes out here. What's the point of that? Just to make us wait longer and get all annoyed at it? I presume they do it because they're a bunch of cheapskates who don't want to pay for the number of prints required to give a film worldwide release, but with the amount of money some of these films make, that's a pretty weak excuse in my opinion.
