    Favorites? That's tough. I just started my DVD collection, so I like 'em all.

    American History X
    Antz
    Matrix
    The Mummy
    Patch Adams
    Predator
    Stir of Echos
    Tarzan

    Actually, I haven't seen Antz yet. So many people liked it, I thought it was worth a shot. I just hope it was worth it.

    Well, I'm a little biased because I am a blues musician, but I really get a kick out of Blues Masters which is an old 1963 CBC recording of some classic Blues performers who got together for a 3day studio-concert.

    Sure it's b&w, it's DD mono, but it's the best recording I've ever seen of artists like Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, Sonny and Brownie, James Cotton, etc. If you like Blues this is a must.

    Speaking of Special Interest favorites... if you want to give your DD system a workout - take a peek at IMAX's 'Super Speedway'. One word - "sweeeet".

    Some of my favorites include:

    Dogma
    Hunt for Red October (I woke my mom up
    at 3 in the morning with that one!)
    any of the Bond discs
    Apollo 13 (still one of the best SE discs!)
    Spinal Tap:Criterion
    South Park:BLU

    But I now have too many to watch over and over--I'll never get them all watched.

    Any one else have that problem?

    Lito - it's definitely beginning to be an issue. I love inviting people over for a movie now and tell them to pick one out, any one they want. Invariably the response is, "oh I don't want to pick something you're tired of..." TIRED OF? Unthinkable!

    Anyhow, y'all reminded me of a couple others. first of all, props to Anyo for 5th Element. That's another one I've been over countless times. Then there are a few more to add:

    Dragonheart
    Top Gun
    Crimson Tide (Go Denzel!)
    Starship Troopers (mindless, bad acting, I know, BUT)

    - codes

    Lito, I know where you're coming from on this topic. When we start our collections, we can watch the same ones over and over: We HAVE TO because we don't have any other choices. But later, as our collections grow, we could watch a different movie every night for 3 or 4 months (or longer for some of us). I have followed this pattern myself from VHS through Laserdisc and now DVD. It's often hard to find time for repeat viewings of our top choices without ignoring new releases and lesser favorites in our collections. What a dilemma...

    And Codestah raises a nice point too: It's fun to bring friends in for movie night because we get a chance to enjoy not only the movie but also our guests' reactions to it. This is doubly so if they have never seen DVD before. If they are used to only VHS, they will be blown away.

    After I got my home theater set up, I invited in my father, who had never seen DVD before and really has only a marginal interest in films. I put on The Thing (1982), and the new Universal Studios logo came up on screen. Dad stood up from his chair and said, "Wow, THAT is SHARP." And he was very impressed throughout. For me, his positive reaction was even better than the movie itself.

    Those of you who want to expand the DVD market and get more players and titles out there, just invite over all your unsuspecting friends some night: One good flick and they will be on their way to Circuit City, easy marks for the salesmen.
