My first dvd was Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country. My sister bought it for me when she lived in the states for a few years.

The first dvd I bought myself was "Double Jeopardy", right after I bought my first dvd player, a Pioneer Multizone dvd player.

Mine was Double Take and See Spot Run. I got them two days before the 9/11 attacks.

It's funny you mention this. I took 9/11 off from work because it was the Tuesday that Argento's Suspiria and Opera were making their DVD debute. Oops.

In the Line of Fire. It was barebones. Didnt even have a real menu. It was $40 BEFORE tax.

Got it in '98, the same day as my spiffy new $650 player with s-video connection. Very Happy

Was the UK Starship Troopers flipper, at the time PCs weren't that powerful so got a hardware decoding card and a DVD-ROM drive. Was amazed at the quality.

There were my first DVDs I got these before I my DVD player came through the post.

The reason I got these because Robocop was cut to ribbons and the rest were banned.

Robocop:- Directors Cut
The Exorcist
The Evil Dead
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Straw Dogs
A Clockwork Orange
Natural Born Killers

It's amazing how prices of dvd players have dropped so much in 8 years and the price of dvd's only a little, or skyrocketed!

Star Trek: Insurrection was the first DVD I got (as a Christmas gift in 1999, same Christmas I got my DVD player), but the first one I bought myself was The Matrix, which I already owned on VHS, but for a movie that was that good, I thought that DVD was absolutely necessary. And it was indeed. But the first movie I ever watched on DVD was Entrapment, which I rented.

If you go by the first "owned" DVDs I actually held in my hand, it would be Ghostbusters and The Princess Bride.  Bought them on a Saturday at the mall the same day as my player.  

However, earlier in the week (I think may have actually been the night before, can't remember for sure), knowing that I was going to buy the player, I ordered The Prince of Egypt and The Abyss from Amazon.

Fight Club, the marvelous two-discer. Sadly AWOL from my collection at present.

South Park: BL&U and Criterion Robocop were the first I ordered, but I bought The Matrix and The Spy Who Shagged Me while I was waiting for them (back when the format wasn't that popular and Virgin did two for £30 on all new releases).

And Peter, Fox are re-releasing the R1 two-discer of Fight Club if I remember rightly. It's the only one with all four commentary tracks.

I'd prefer if only the producers made one whole season worth, "Grey's Anatomy". Loved that new show!! Just finished watching the first nine episodes. Apparently Australia will be screening the other four absence episodes that were not shown after the nine episodes in the U.S.

HEY! I own the Digimon movie too. I rented it as a laugh and ended up liking it enough to spend 5 bucks on used. The bit where the one hacker kid gets a wicked case of the runs in the middle of trying to save the world because he ate the Beef Jerky shake was golden.
