Which Indy films belong in a collection?

So I was looking over the 200 some odd DVDs I have and I realized that probably 90% of the movies I own are mainstream movies. It made me realize that I need to broaden my collection. So my question to all the film gurus out there is what independent films should be in every DVD collection?

I'd say you need all 3 in your collection.




Though most people would say Temple of Doom is their least favorite.

Six String Samurai is definitely fun and non-mainstream.

Indy = Indiana Jones

Indie = Indepedent film

ND = Neutral density

Just a helpful guide for future reference.

Ok, considering 99.9% of us all thought of the same joke, it obviously wasn't that great of a joke.

Yes, that's the way to rationalize it caiman... Those damn joke stealers.

Somehow I thought that maybe, just maybe, I could come in here now and be the first person to make an Indiana Jones joke. Oh what a fool I was.

But anyway Indie films. El Mariachi is good one. You can get that 2-Pack with Desparado for $15 now so it's really a good deal.

I didn't come in to make the Indiana Jones joke, I came in to try and make sense of the question!
