What are your most anticipated DVDs of 2006?

For me:

King Kong
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Kingdom of Heaven: Director's Cut
A History of Violence

Probably some more I'm forgetting and some films I haven't caught yet like Narnia and Munich.

A copy of Night of the Creeps, Night of the Comet, Monster Squad, and other 80's cheesy horror would suit me great !!!!!

Play Time (Criterion)
Mr. Arkadin (Criterion)
Sam Peckinpah Westerns collection (Warners)
Dune (Extended edition)
The Electric Company (Best of)
The Busby Berkeley collection

Crossing my fingers for a complete series set of The Twilight Zone (Image did this for The Dick Van Dyke Show, so here's hoping)

I'll add more as I think of them (although I guess reflection compromises their status as "most anticipated" ).

Basically everything I liked from '05.

Still hoping for The African Queen and The Maltese Falcon Special Editions. Proper anamorphic widescreen dvds of Mission: Impossible and Ace Ventura. Stand alone anamorphic widescreen edition of Psycho (don't want the box set).

RE-RE-RE-RE-RE RELEASED $ony titles.
