Indeed. Right on Mike I think that most French films are snobbish anyway and besides when you add up the fact that you have to have subs you lose about 80% of the viewing pleasure. I also have Brotherhood of the Wolf but I only watch the English version. Good thing they included the dub. The film was mediocre anyhow though....

OK, I'll shoot one right back at ya. Are their Czech films? (Just being filmed in Prague doesn't count) Or how about Polish films? Now German, yes...just got the new Das Boot mini-series.

Tell ya what, I'd watch a German film anytime over a French film. Let's just say there's some historical and current geo-political reasons for that. [/B]
Again I agree with you. I have not heard of many Czech films, awhile ago there was a Czech film, or so I think that I was going to see because people were saying that it maight be good. What was it called...Kolya?? (was it nominated for an Oscar or two or something??) not sure about Polish films either. Maybe only Kieslowski and Forman..I think they did a few films..but then again they moved to France so....o, forget it, they all have subs so...I am not really into foreign stuff either. Takes too much time to read 'em. And with the French and all...I too have a few reasons as you put it and besides their actions are too weak for my taste (Bad Boys was awesome though...the special effects were cool...all the stuff that they blew up, man....I only wish that our version of Bad Boys 2 came with a DTS track as the French version did...it would be so awesome to crank up the volume on the DTS track...will totaly impress my neighbors.

I'll do you up real good. So be happy with what you get.

Rating = 8.5/10
or
Grade = A-

I'll suggest some films but you either own or want 106/136 films I own so it makes it tough.

Anyway, my suggestions are:

Cube
Gattaca
Leon: The Professional
The Others
Pitch Black
SLC Punk
Signs
Unbreakable


Maybe some foreign films but I'm not the person to ask about them. Just getting into that 'genre' myself.

Well, I've seen all of those but "The Others" and haven't felt the need to buy any of those on DVD. I'd get Gattaca if it were a better DVD - but I think it's non-anamorphic and has no special features, so I'll pass.

The M. Night films after (and before, for that matter) the Sixth Sense really don't do much for me. I do want to see "The Villiage," though.

And you're absolutely right - I need to own Leon: The Professional - I don't know why I haven't picked it up yet.

What you smokin' jough? Gattaca has two different versions that are anamorphic. The Superbit version which is anamorphic & has DTS & the regular edition which is quite nice in itself. It has an anamorphic transfer, DD 5.1, deleted scenes, featurette, trailer, etc.

Be sure to check out The Others. If you liked The Sixth Sense you will probably enjoy this. It is a bit slow moving but it very atmospheric and intriguing. One of my favorite films to watch around Halloween. Having surround sound makes a couple scenes in this film a bit scarier.

1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail since you have Life of Brian

2. Reservoir Dogs since you have Pulp Fiction

3 & 4. Lord of the Rings: TT and ROTK since you have FOTR

5. Unbreakable or Signs since you have The Sixth Sense


* Of course I am only commenting from what you have and I am not good at choosing titles for someone else other than myself.

Pretty solid collection so far, though.

You have a lot of dvds. Too many for me to actually look through.

But what I did skim through looked pretty eclectic.


Do you actually plan on keeping and watching every single one of those dvds? This is why I sold a lot of my dvds and kept what I wanted and I learned to only get something that I wanted to actually spend my money on.

9/10

Yeah. I wasn't sure how I could pick off the wall titles that had nothing to do with his other titles so I picked similar stuff.

Spend a larger percentage of your income on DVDs. In fact, spend all of it. It's the only way you'll get to heaven.

Ah, okay. I was going to pick it up during DVD Empire's last sale, but then looked at the back of the box:


and noticed it didn't say it was anamorphic, 16:9, or enhanced for widescreen tvs anywhere - I just assumed it was letterboxed.

And I also assumed that it wasn't packed with extras, since the only special features they list are "Special Features"

Rate my Collection... any essentials I'm missing?

Just curious what you guys/gals thought about My DVD Collection. I have most of the DVDs I want, except I do have a wish list there with some DVDs I've been meaning to get (once money allows).

Not counting Star Trek TNG & DS9, I probably have about 90% of the titles shown ...BUT..... you have almost nothing pre-1985. The bulk of the great movies made are being ignored. And you really should also start exploring some foreign films.
