Got a collection link? Might help to know your tastes in film.

Shrek is generally well liked by most but it wasn't my cup of tea exactly so I won't talk about that much.

Jurassic Park is great entertainment, best dinosaurs on film even to this day. Lost World was quite horrid...

Yeah, having some ideas about your tastes would help. I thought the Jurassic sequels were also lousy; I'd definitely skip The Lost World. Personally I can't see watching Jurassic Park all that many times, and I try to pick up films on DVD (rather than renting them) when I think I'm going to watch them several times.

I don't know if it'd be cheap in the UK being a UK film, but if you haven't seen Dog Soldiers, it's quite a good action-horror film.

The 2-DVD set for Who Framed Roger Rabbit is excellent, with a commentary that was pretty enjoyable and a lot of other extras.

I second DOG SOLDIERS. Watched it last evening for the first time and really enjoyed it -- especially the nods to ZULU and AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON.

JURASSIC PARK has great replay value; ROGER RABBIT just doesn't do it for me.

As others have said, having some idea of your tastes might make it easier to recommend titles to you. TRAINSPOTTING is available in a fantastic UK edition, so if you're into dark humor, debauchery, recreational drug use, and bursts of violence, you might like it. Ditto TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE.
