Superman I-IV
Easy Rider

The Muppet Movie
and my new prize possesion....

Well, for me it's a toss-up between getting the latest game or the latest DVD film... ;) I also just use the DVD drive (with PowerDVD) in my PC for DVD playback at the moment, so my selection of titles is rather limited as well...

Men In Black (Special Edition)
Alien (Boxed Quartet)
Deep Rising
Tremors 2
This Island Earth
Blade
Tomorrow Never Dies

My wife and kids have a few others, like Shrek, Toy Story 2, Star Trek Inusurrection, The Fugitive, Space Cowboys...

Of course...there are a ton of other films I want to add to that collection - especially some of the SF Golden Oldies (some of which I already have on VHS). I have made the conscious decision not to purchase any more video tapes...I'd rather get the DVD versions. :)

Very true, but...

1. Until recently, VHS has (mostly) been cheaper than DVD.
2. Some films/tv series have not been available on DVD until recently (and some are still unavailable in that format).

By conscious decision, I mean I actually purchased a few DVDs before I ever had anything to play them on, and also the fact that I will probably hold out on getting a film/tv series until it is released on DVD. :)

I won't be getting any Star Wars DVDs until they bring out the boxed collection, that's for sure. ;)

Here it goes:

The Phantom Menace
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Unbreakable
The Sixth Sense
Magnolia
Eyes Wide Shut
Life is Beautiful(La Vita Ê Bella)
Hook
Edward Scissorhands
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Jaws
Lawrence of Arabia
The Bridge on the River Kwai

I also had American Psycho, Blade Runner, Matrix and Ghost in the Shell earlier, but after viewing them couple of times, they just didn't feel to be part of my collection(because of various reasons). Next I'm gonna definitely buy Willow DVD, but I need to find Region 2 copy of it somewhere with Finnish subtitles... :(

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie

Just had to have it eh? ;)

Is that the only Turtles movie on DVD? I haven't seen any of the others on DVD. Not that they are very good, but it might be cool to have them.

Which version of Starship Troopers? The decent film or the GREAT tv series Roughnecks?

i might be tempted to get a dvd player now the dvd prices are coming down to a sensible price.. it just bugs me to shell out £20 for a film i already have just to get some deleted scenes and a commentary that i will probably watch a total of once...

if the LOTR dvd lives up to my expectations, that might be the turning point though.

(and it would be nice to be able to watch my VCDs on the big tv downstairs... ;) )

Uh, the much higher picture quality is a pretty good reason to get DVD as well.

It would take a while to type out all my DVDs. Safe to say it consists of all the best sci-fi and action movies out there. I run these movies on THX speakers using a DLP front projecter for a very large and sharp image.

Actually The Matrix Revisited is a two hour documentary on The Matrix, and doesn't include the film. It also has little featurettes on things like the Animatrix shorts, Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions, and The Matrix Reloaded video game. It's like the supplemental disc that should have come with the movie in the first place.

Would a whole series of Star Trek fit on one DVD??? If so then wouldnt it be cheaper for them to stick to 3 episodes per video :), but if they did that on a DVD loads of space would be wasted :rolleyes:
