Just a small poll: DVD Cases?
I was just browsing the web and found images of the DVD case of the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" remake and thought that the case was pretty cool, so it got me thinking which DVD packaging you think is the coolest?
To me, just off the top of my head it would be the "King Kong (Collector´s Edition)" tin case, followed by the 4-disc "Ben-Hur" packaging or the "Gone With the Wind (4-Disc)"

Yes, I agree, there are too many great cases, I was just naming a few, but in my collection, besides the ones I´ve listed, I have:
-Sin City (Unrated)
-Se7en (2-Disc)
-Walk The Line (2-Disc)
-Cinderella Man (Collector´s Ed.)
-The Good, the bad and the ugly (Extended)
-The Lord Of the Rings Trilogy (extended)
-The Matrix Collection (Without the Neo figure)
-TITANIC (3-Disc)
-Van Helsing (Collector´s Edition) [Note: I bought it mainly because it contained the old monster movies]
-Pearl Harbor (Director´s Cut)
-Black Hawk Down (3-Disc)
-Alien Saga (Collector´s Edition)
-The Terminal (3-Disc)
-Gladiator (EE)
-Master and Commander (Collector´s Ed.)

Those are the "cool" cases on my collection, just a question about the FRIENDS collection.
Does it contain anything new? because I already own all the seasons separatedly and I would like to know if all I´m missing is the big case

Oh yeah, Walk the Line and Sin City: Recut are without a doubt  some good covers! And I also like the Friday the 13th boxset with the first eight films.

The one that I really like is the diecut cover for the Halloween movies that Anchor Bay released 2 years ago in the UK.  The other one that they got is the Hellrasier cube and the Phantasm boxset.  The ones that I own aren't quite so extensive though as others that are members here.  I have the Friday the 13th set along with the NOES set.  Other than that, I'm more of a 2 disc SE release kind of guy.

Lately, Munich and Jarhead (2nd one if you can find it)

however, there are a lot, just not on the top of my head right now

if you ask in the past there are probably a lot that you might be missing out...like for example not many ppl would know that The Terminal 3-Disc is a digipak etc...

also if you like digipaks and premium stuff, you should definitely try R3 - Korea, Hong Kong and R2 - Japan (!!!)

I find a lot of Original artwork for DVD covers Dull & boring so I try to get custom made covers for my cases which look better than the originals.I'm not sure about the legality but ive payed for my dvd so I should be allowed to change the artwork.Ive just downloaded the Steven Seagal covers for my cases and they look fantastic together as a set.

Not only would people not know this I'm sure they would be horrified to know that there are even more bonus features filling up a 3rd disc for this warm flannel of a movie. Is the 3rd disc bonus material or is it just the soundtrack?

I'm a big fan of Shyamalan's films (The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable) in the Vista Series packages. Two discs, incredible artwork (with quotes), nice booklets and storyboards/drawings. Even the menus are luxurious!
