Since pretty much everyone has mentioned mine, the one DVD I was the most suprised at how much I like it was Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I didnt see this in the movies, and I bought it as a blind buy, and became my second fav movie this year next to the Incredibles.

Seinfeld and Star Wars duh!

But after those, I'd chose:

Buffy S7 (my first completed series)
Thriller aka They Call Her One eye
Lemora: Child's Tale of the Supernatural
Creature from the Black Lagoon Legacy
Videodrome: CC

Those were the ones outside of the Big Two, that were either wonderful surprises or great transfer/extras. Sure there's been a ton of great releases, but these took me by surprises.
