Fire burns all dvds-which 5 first?

I come to your house and burn it, all your dvds burn with it. Which 5 do you go buy back first once you've re-settled in a house!? Yes this is similiar to what are your 5 favourite dvds or something like that but just go with it....

by time you lit the match....you would be lying flat on yer back with a shotgun blast to the face...and a very pissed off rottweiler performing the throat death-grip.

I have too many favorites to pick 5 to replace quickly. I was hoping this thread was what 5 of mine did I want you to set fire to, that would be easier.

1. The James Bond Collection
2. Wrong Men & Notorious Women
3. Looney Tunes Golden Collection
4. Alias: The Complete First Season
5. Clue

Actually I'd go to your house pee, skeet amd crap all over your DVD's and Home theater (so that you'd have no choice but to go through the pain of getting rid of your stuff) and then I'd go and find:

Ultimate Toy Box
Fight Club
LOTR EE's
The Matrix
Indiana Jones Box set

Assuming that I didn't use my own body to try to pat out all of the flames . . . likely dying in the attempt . . . I would probably go with (in no particular order):

- Band Of Brothers,
- LOTR: TFOTR,
- LOTR: TTT,
- Black Hawk Down, and
- Godfather Trilogy

LOTR-EEs
Star Wars Saga
Stargate SG-1 series
Matrix Trilogy
Band of Brothers

But first, before you could start the fire, I would ram one of my crutches down your throat until it touched your prostate. And then I would twist it, round and round, until you would whistle Dixie.

Considering the number of times this thread has been done I was hoping for a new twist... like which 5 would you throw on the flames first

For me I'd go for:
Art of Illusion - interesting documentary for watching once but not really something you'd see often... must have picked it up cheap

Best in Show - bought it a couple of years ago (again cheap, some sort of video story closing sale) but still haven't watched it

Cube2 - Sequel to a movie you really couldn't make a sequel to

Final Fantasy: Spirits Within - Love the CGI, hate the story

National Geographic: Beyond the Movie - The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King - Complete and utter waste of money and time. A collection of supposed connections between characters from the LotR and people in history... sounded like the result of a 10th grade history project IMHO.


To really answer the question though... to be honest if everything was lost I'm not sure I would really get into the buying frenzy again. Some that I would eventually get around to replacing though would be:

Miracles - fav Jackie Chan movie
Firefly - very underrated sci-fi show
Running Out Of Time - fav Lau Ching Wan movie
LotR EE versions
Arsenic and Old Lace - always been a fav of mine

If you burnt all my DVDs my wife would love you , she every so often tries to get me to sell the whole thing off because it takes so much space.

My Number 1 choice would be Subway, no idea what I was thinking when I bought that.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090095/

And then Aquaria, cool concept, but not worth watching more than once.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...v=glance&s=dvd

#3 - The Italians, misread it and thought it would teach me Italian which is something I WOULD like to do.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...v=glance&s=dvd

More later...

Holy crap, I thought I was the only one on the planet who knew about/loved that movie!

Anyway, in a fire I would grab as many Angel and Buffy box sets that I could carry.
