What DVD Should I Get?

OK, DVDTalk -- I need your help.

If you click the link in my signature, you will see that I own exactly 999 DVDs, at least by the way I count them. 999! That means my next DVD is the oh-so-momentous #1,000!

And I have no idea what DVD could be worthy of this honor.

So hit me with your best suggestion. Tell me what I should buy. Tell me what DVD deserves that place of glory.

A couple of caveats:

First, while the Owned list is up-to-date, the Wishlist is not. So don't limt yourself to the DVDs on that list.

Second, I count DVDs in my collection when I have them in my hands. That means a pre-order won't do the trick.

So lay it on me, people. Tell me what to buy!

You own "Swingers" but you don't have "Made".

Not in the least. It's very much the same kind of humor I see in The Office, that uncomfortable situation / annoying person humor. Love it!

You didn't state when you were buying it but if you can wait until Tuesday you could get the Troy: Director's Cut (Ultimate Edition)
or else go for a classic like Commando: Director's Cut

If I got Troy or the Graduate, it would be a double-dip, which means I would unload the previous version, which means I would renumber and I'd be back where I started!

Fight Club has some possibilities. Otherwise, nothing anybody mentioned really grabs me.

Part of me thinks I should buy the movie my wife and I saw on our first date, but it is a really, really, really, really terrible movie and I don't really want to own it.

i don't think it sucks, but it isn't my type of humor. when i say "Made" sucks, i mean it more for the disappointment i felt when i saw it. i mean the reunion of the "Swingers" guys was something i was so so looking forward to as i loooved "Swingers". but Vince Vaughn's character was so grating and annoying that he took me right out of it. he took his Trent character and amplified it to the nth degree and it really didn't work at all.

Sell them all, start over at #1 with HD-DVD and/or Blu-Ray!

The first title I looked for was Primer, which you don't own. Then I looked for Brick, and you don't own that. Those are the two movies I tell people to buy when they ask for a good one they probably don't own. If I had to pick one, I'd say Primer. And it's not because I have one for sale in my FS/FT thread in the DVDTalk.com Exchange forum. First class shipping would get to you in 3 days. If you are interested, click anywhere around this general area of underlined text. It really is a good movie, and it's one that most people rewatch quickly to see what they could have missed. It's a good one to be #1000. In fact, I think I'll watch mine again this weekend (the one I have for sale is brand new).


Then, buy these:

1001. Brick
1002. What Dreams May Come
1003. Fallen
1004. The Girl in the Cafe

I was just taking a wild guess, thatís all.

Iím in the same camp you are. The Office isnít my type of humor either. Itís the only NBC ĎComedy Night Done Rightí comedy I donít love.

I don't see Run Lola Run on your list, that's a crime.
