Anyone else download the 1st Animatrix short film?

Umm, kind of looks like the humans deserved to be turned into batteries. I won't give anything away but....jeez humans suck.

Thats the one Squaresoft made, right? Too bad I'm not interested in Matrix stuff, I liked Square Studios....I wish the FF film hadn't bombed so we could see more movies by them.

Where can I find this at? and is it a big file?

I think it's theanimatrix.com. If not just check the Matrix movie site. There should be a link from there.

There are 3 sizes. Can't remember 'em off the top of my head.

It was surprising to see how "uncencored" it was although its a cartoon. Otherwise I think it was very cool. I cant wait to the DVD-release. Isn't it in the end of 2003?

So what exactly is the Animatrix? And how do they make money on it if you get to download it for free?

THE ANIMATRIX fuses the creative vision of Larry and Andy Wachowski, writer-directors of THE MATRIX and its upcoming sequels, with the inspired artistry of some of the most revered and exciting talent of the anime world. (Description directly from their website)

It is a series of nine feature-film-quality short animated films, each between six and sixteen minutes long.

Only four will be downloadable. They will then sell the DVD with all of them, and they will proberly throw in alot of extras on that DVD.

Have you even watched the preview or the website.

You can watch the first movie and the preview at www.theanimatrix.com

and you can read more about the animatrix at www.thematrix.com

so when is the second part going to come out???

02-24-2003, 11:12 AM
I downloaded it. that was a pretty cool movie. A little on the sad side though. Those robots reminded me of those mimes in animaniacs, which was pretty funny.

No there aren't, but i would asume between the midle and the end of the month just as the first one here in february.

02-25-2003, 10:13 AM
The first one came out at the beginning of february. Feb 4th, I believe.

Hahaha god I'm stooopid.

I never actually looked at this topic properly because I assumed it was going to be a link to some stupid "humorous" (< I use the term with a little scepticism) flash version of the matrix, where the characters are replaced by animals. Hence "Animatrix" :D

I'm downloading it now (+ Hanging my head in shame)

It's pretty good, but it adds nothing to the story like the first episode did.

And that chick has the dumbest hair I've seen in quite a while.

it looks nice, but it isn't as loaded as the first one.
