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....

I come to your house and burn it, all your dvds burn with it.

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.

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,
- Black Hawk Down, and
- Godfather Trilogy

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.

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

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

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.
