best DVDs you own

well for all those lucky people who are priveleged to get this technology:

anyway mine is already quite impressive

best ones i have are (and purely simply because they captured all the technology the dvd has to offer)
the matrix
gladiator
starwars episode 1- the movie that your dvd player was made for
independence day
bladerunner
terminator 2
titanic- stunning visuals
2001 a space odyssey
jurassic park
braveheart (special edition)
x-files season 1 boxset
x-files season 2 boxset :P

im all for the epics

slight disappointments are:
the simpsons season 1 boxset - its a cartoon, so those amazing things dvd can offer is somewhat lost
close encounters of the third kind

I think it's a law that anyone who has a DVD player must own The Matrix (Isn't that the film that they used to show the capabilities of DVD?)

Well, I don't own a DVD player. However, I am staying at my sister's house right now, and she does. However, she only has one DVD (which I bought for her): Mouse Hunt.

Hey, it's friggin' cute, okay?????? I'm rather fond of mice!

The ones I love that aren't on this list yet:
Ronin - those car chases completely come alive on your TV
The Talented Mr. Ripley - its really stunning visually
Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels - just hilarious, and the sound is awesome, plus cool extras
Apollo 13 - probably my favorite movie ever, with those incredible launch scenes too

I also have the standard Saving Private Ryan and Gladiator. I don't own The Matrix for the simple reason that everyone around me already has it in case I ever need to watch it.

Fight Club is a wicked DVD, and definately one that I need to get.

THe Criterion collection edition of Brazil is quite cool for extras..

and the Terminator 2 special edition is of course monumentally extra featured.. though i dont have it and i've never seen it, just heard about it.
