The Matrix Trilogy makes it to HD-DVD in the form of two boxsets. Release date is set for May 22nd. The first box set "The Complete Matrix Trilogy" will feature all three movies plus a bonus "The Matrix Revisited" disc. All movies will be given the HD-DVD (IME) exclusive interactive content treatment. The second boxset, "The Ultimate Matrix Collection," will feature the same as above but also include an additional 35 hrs worth of bonus material! Warner Bros plans a Blu Ray release later this year when the "BD-Java environment" feature is ready for distribution.

The martial arts epic, Curse of the Golden Flower will be available on Blu Ray on May 29th. This movie will be displayed in 1080p using mpeg 2 compression and 5.1, uncompresses surround sound.

"Freedom Writers" or "Super Cliche 3" as I like to call it, will be available on May 22nd on both formats. Hilary Swank stars as the teacher that takes on the troubled kids from the hood.
