- Your DVD Of The Year Thread -
Just pick your favorite SINGLE release of the year - it could be a box set, or just a single disc.

My pick:

Fassbinder's BRD Trilogy from Criterion:

3 excellent films, remastered, looking and sounding phenomenal and each loaded with insightful extras such as commentaries and more. A 4th disc focusing on the director, Ranier Fassbinder, along with a huge booklet giving even more insight to the films.

from this review: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/brdtrilogy.php
"As a package, I will go out on a limb and declare that this is likely Criterion's best-ever release. Given the quality of the films, the excellent anamorphic transfers, the exhaustive, entertaining, and insightful interviews and commentaries, three essential features, the 53-page booklet, and the integrated, artful design concept, the Criterion team has once again raised the bar for excellence. "

The Adventures of Robin Hood

Amazing restoration and transfer for a 65 year-old film. Tons of cool supplements including a commentary(I think it's the same one from the Criterion LD, but I'm not sure), multiple documentaries, outtakes, trailers, animated shorts, and even an isolated music track. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that this is one of the greatest motion pictures ever made.

You want a 'no contest', I've got a series for you:


Really any of the Doctor Who discs released this year are worthy. The quality that these discs shine with would put *ANY* other TV show to shame.

First is the full restoration job to the show that makes this 40 year old TV show look like it was shot yesterday - quite the feat considering that the BBC doesnt even have the orignal broadcast masters.

The extras are piled high and deep. Commentary for every episode from surviving cast and crew, trailers thought long lost, easter eggs that poke fun at the show, pop-up text commentary, clips from other TV shows at the time about Who, and documentaries about the show.

Oh, and the actual show itself is pretty cool too. Daleks kick ass.

Given all that, wrapped up in a neat package, how any other DVD can hope to top it, I just dont know.

Pants 12-24-03 03:58 PM

I love how after five years of all the "When will it be released?" and "I want it now!" threads, not very many people have mentioned the clear winner:

Indiana Jones Trilogy

It beats out the Criterion Devil and Daniel Webster, Bergman Trilogy, and Throne of Blood.

Wow almost everything mentioned is pretty great - so has this been the best dvd year so far?

I guess because of advancing technology, every year is better than the one before it...
