I found some reports that even the '99 DVD had been color tweaked. Is this true?
Hmm... I haven't heard of this tweaking. My '99 DVD's color timing looks pretty close to a "For Your Consideration" VHS (presumably for some awards show judge), which I found a few months back.
On a side topic, would my "For Your Consideration" VHS be 1) of original color timing and 2) be of any value?
Also, for anyone who is interested, there are now seeders, including me, on thepiratebay torrent of an HDTV broadcast of the Matrix with open matte picture and non-green-tinted color timing. It's identical to the one on RuTracker except it's not in Russian. Anyone interested should grab it now.
