Well... Sort of.

Just picked up The Animatrix last night, and I noticed some familiar voices...

John DiMaggio does the voice of "Crewmember" in Final Flight of the Osiris, as well as the voice of "Kaiser" in Program.

Another person you *may* have heard of, Tress MacNeille, is responsible for the voices of "Housewife" and "Kenny" in the short Beyond.

As for the rest of the DVD, it comes highly recommended by myself. My favorites are Detective Story, Kid's Story, and Beyond, as well as Final Flight... But everything on there's pretty good. Definately worth a rent, and if its your style, a buy.

Uh... Thoughts?

I only saw Final Flight when it was on five the other week but I haven't seen any of the others.

Renaissance

I only saw the 4 episodes that are online, and maybe I 'll get the DVD. First I want to see them in a theatre though.

John DiMaggio also did some voices in that anime with the vampires.

Watching The Animatrix for the first time yesterday with friends, I exposed my inner nerd by shouting "That's Tress! And Kath Soucie!" during 'Beyond'. Their voices are so distinctive, it was easily pickupabble for a VO freak like me.

Didn't catch John DiMaggio, though. Nor Phil LaMarr as the voice of the guy in 'Program'. I was very impressed at how very well it was all done. A great package.

Crap, I screwed up the section... I'm shameful. *sobs* But yeah.

I, too, would love to see all of the films together in a theatre, but to be honest, I just don't see it happening. I went and saw Dreamcatcher just so I could see Final Flight of the Osiris on the big screen (and if I may be allowed to note, that chick's ass looks ever better when its the size of my Ford Focus). It was awesome. However, many of the short films are very graphic and not appropriate for younger audiences, while by and large the American mindset is "Cartoons are for kids".

Of course, I don't expect any of you to agree with that, especially since Futurama is certainly not geared towards younger audiences. But you must agree that most people are just stuck in the state of mind that you shouldn't be going to see something animated unless you've driving the minivan and bringing all of your prepubesent brats.

So, I doubt you will be seeing most of these films in theatres. The most you can hope for is one or two being shown before films, as was the case with "Final Flight" and Dreamcatcher. I'm thinking, "Detective Story" or "Kid's Story", or maybe "Beyond" or "World Record" before The Matrix: Revolutions, or possibly another WB film which is released shortly before that.

The whole of the Animatrix was shown in selected theatres before the release of Reloaded. Apparently. Don't think we got it in the UK.

Seriously? I never heard anything about it - it certainly didn't occur in white-bread Colorado. Do you have a source for that?

I know it was shown on C5, they had Final Flight of The Osiris on after they showed The Matrix, and i think they went on to show the rest at another time.

But I heard of some US theatres doing the same. Can't recall where, but it might have been PEEL. I'll do a quick search...

Anyone seen those Bender/Futurama crossovers on newgrounds?

Dvd players are really cheap these days, you can get one for $100

I saw the animatrix in cinemas the weekend before reloaded came out. I posted a review of it in the movie review thread back then.

Also most of the voices in Beyond are done by both Kath Soucie and Tress MacNeille, both of futurama fame.

I'm sure that Phil LaMarr is in one episode as well, but I'll have to check. And Kath Soucie (SP) who I think plays Cubert in Futurama.

Khimari (*snicker*), and Wakka, quite frankly one of the most brilliant voice acting jobs ever, if just for the accent.  What is it?  I don't know.  I've called it a Hawaiian/Californian/NYC/Canadian accent.  It's just that . . . unidentifiable.

He does about half the voices in "Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust." For the main characters, he's Charlotte's father, Nolt (Markus Brothers), and he's the Barborois fighter Mashira (the guy with the wolf in his chest.) I know he does more, cuz I've watched the credits, and his name appeared at least 10 times...

My DVD came today and they're pretty cool.
That chick in Flight of Osiris was very well modelled.  flirt

I finally got my GeForce FX 5200, so now I have the game up and running. It rules. Now, all I need is the Animatrix...

The robots in Second Renaissance looked really gay with the bowler hats.
I didn't like the World Record or Matriculated ones though. Matriculated definately could have been better, storywise.
Also, Beyond was shown on MTV a few times and I didn't even know it was Animatrix!

I should also add that he was the voice of Gonza in the Miyazaki film Princess Mononoke.

In the beginning the Universe was created.  This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

I loved the one with the runner, "world record" or something, I love things that show raw emotions with very few words.
