Our friends bought us that the other day when they went home to Italy. Only Italian DVD I have, and it's not bad.


Really? I hate that movie so much. I did my best to pretend I liked it as to not offend the people I was watching it with.

My first DVD was Taxi Driver. My mom gave it to me with my first DVD player as a Birthday gift in college.


how do some many hate Life Is Beautiful? it's a beautiful film

It's a shame as there are a lot of good things on the DVD.
My feeling on the film is that the parts (the action/stunts) are greater than the whole. The work done by the production/stunt crew is amazing when viewed in isloation on the featurettes. It's just when you see the work within the context of the film I personally just start yawning and looking at my watch. If the human characters are invincible, how can the audience be involved in the outcome of the many fights?

I was more interested in the Special features on the disc (which were more interesting than the film) and the Ben Stiller 'Being Tom Crooze' bit.

I think I wanted the dvd for the metallica video Laugh

I don't remember that version of The Matrix. Wink

Mine was the Starship Troopers flipper, which looked amazing on my PC when I first tried it.

That's pretty funny. Mine were The Matrix and Austin Powers 2.

More importantly tho, the first DVD I really felt was up to the level that the DVD format was made for was Fight Club. Still impresses me to this day.

Batman, didn't even have a proper DVD player. I had to use my PS2 to watch it...ahh those are the days
Psycho - Hitchcock
The Witches of Eastwick- I wanted to see it in the WIDESCREEN format for years
Double Take and See Spot Run (I know, laugh it up, you'll be rolling on the floor when I tell you that I still watch these movies).

So you had it on DVD the year before it was made? Impressive.
My first DVD was Ronin, then The Matrix but that wouldn't load on my first player so I had to get a new player to watch it.  This is one of the reasons I probably won't get into HD formats early...
Contact - Jodie Foster when DVD was new in like '96
Mine was The Patriot with Gibson in it.  It was cool.
Criterion Robocop and South Park: BL&U were the first. After that I think it was The Matrix and The Spy Who Shagged Me. I went for region one from the start, but I bought The Matrix and TSWSM in the UK because it was two for £30 in Virgin stores at the time. I soon regretted it when I found out one was cut and the other was missing a hidden feature.
mine was the emperors new groove!!! HAHAHA!!!!
Not very proud to say 'The Sweetest Thing' lol
Your very first DVD
Just curious.... what were your first titles on DVD?

Way back when they were new, mine were Alien, Halloween H20, and Deep Blue Sea.
