How many flipper/2 disc dvd movies do you own?

Ok, a flipper is when the movie is on 2 sides, not when the widescreen version is on one side, and full frame on the other and the same with the extras.

Flipper to me doesn't mean the longer films that are on two disks. I consider flippers movies like "A WOMAN UNDER THE INFLUENCE" or "GOODFELLA's", average-lengthed movies that you need to flip in the middle for no apparent reason.

What I don't understand about "Goodfellas", is that the Disc is labeled Widescreen on one side, and Full Frame on the other. But when you watch Widescreen, half way through the film, you have to flip it over. I couldn't tell you if you had to do the same with the Full Frame version, because I haven't watched it.

Got rid of my one and only flipper when the SE of The Color Purple was released. The only 2-discs I have are Godfather 2 and LOTR:FOTR EE. I assume LOTR:TT EE will be a 2-disc as well so that will bring the grand total up to 3.

A lot of the ones above.

I'm not home, but I think The Stand and It and the TV movie version of the Shining are all flippers, too.

I think The Right Stuff is the only one I own. Ironically, it's the first DVD I ever bought.
