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
starwars episode 1- the movie that your dvd player was made for
independence day
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.

Change is the only constant

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.

Fight Club was an awesome surprise. Great film. 1st time I saw it was on DVD. I have never been more pleasantly surprised by any film.

Phantom Menace lives up to it's claim of best sound. Lucasfilm rocks.

Best DVD...EVER!.... Simpsons first season. Bland DVD (nothing special in the way of extras, except missing episode, of course). Best content to date...pure Simpsons...
