Go on then Mal, seeing as someone has to popularise these forums Wink

These are subject to change at anygiven moment, but as of right now these are probablt my top ten:

1. Fight Club (R1) - The mutt's nuts and no mistake!
2. Dogma SE (R1) - Bloody funny film, even better set!
3. T2 (R1) - not the best film ever, but one of the best DVD packages.
4. Criterion Robocop (R0) - Still not the best disc, but better than the R2 release and a top film!
5. Star Wars: Episode I (R2) - people may slate it, but it's not that bad and the DVD release is excellent. 5.1 lightsabers!
6. Superman Box set (R2) - Alright so I'm cheating, but these two films should be seen as one. Pity the sequel didn't egt the same loving attention the original did in the ausio/video departments.
7. Alien Legacy (R2) - Still cheating, but the first two are some of the best movies ever made, and I don't hate the others...
8. Nightmare on Elm Street Collection (R1) - Seven films, an amazing bonus disc, great audio and video. Forget the lousy R2 release, get this!
9. LA Confidential (R2) - An excellent film on a great disc. Need I say more?
10. The Shawshank Redemption (R4) - One of my favourite films, finally given a decent audio/video transfer. Not many extras, but the film is so good you won't mind.

Honourable mentions to: Criterion Chasing Amy (R1), Moulin Rouge (R4), Mallrats SE (R1), Usual Suspects SE (R2), Tron SE (R1), Manhunter SE (R0), Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back (R1), Any Given Sunday (R4) and Goodfellas (R2 flipper, but the film is so amazing I can almost live with it).

Actually, sod it. I have far too many favourites. I only buy films I want, so I love them all!

I take it I'm not allowed to mention Star Wars bootlegs in this thread? Wink
