There was one guy in the background of Crash that did a really good job. He gets my vote.

No "Other" option? Personally, I thought the Batman Anthology was pretty great.

This one really needs an "Other" option, especially considering that most of the extras on JAWS were previously released on LD or DVD, and TITANIC is missing any kind of serious documentary. Oh, and THE FLY wasn't released by Criterion. Maybe a little more thought should have been put into this.

My vote:
GLADIATOR: EXTENDED EDITION

Fox did most of the work on the TITANIC DVD. Paramount merely distributed it in the U.S.

BTW - The Fly should have been (Collector's Edition) not (Criterion Collection).

Is there an echo in here? This thread needs a "do-over" button.

I voted for King Kong based on the choices given, but my real selection would have been Criterion's F for Fake.

Forgetting the poll for a moment .....

For me, one of the best "extras" trend was the inclusion of an alternate version of the film. I'm not talking about a director's cut, but a completely different film version, such as:

BEN-HUR - includes the silent version
WIZARD OF OZ - includes earlier silent versions
ANNA CHRISTIE - includes German language version, with completely different cast except for Garbo
STATE FAIR - includes the somewhat dismal Pat Boone remake

Based on what I've seen it was a tough call between King Kong and The Fly (and the Devil's Rejects for that matter but it wasn't a choice) since my favorite Extra is a feature length Documentary.

Ultimately I had to go with Kong as it was the most informative and entertaining.

Sin City- the addition of the comic book even made the set more beautiful

Gladiator Extended or Cinderella Man Collector's edition for me.

Assuming the King Kong Production diaries don't count as extras since they were sold on their own.

Out of the choices probably Ben Hur for the silent version, or Wizard of Oz for the various Oz versions.

For me, though, the best was Hoop Dreams just because having the commentary from the guys the movie was about added a whole new dimension.

I chose King Kong but as soon as I clicked it I remembered that Ben Hur came with the earlier version of the film so now I kinda wish I chose that. Also I haven't picked up the new Sin City yet (or the old one for that matter) but I hope it starts a trend in theatrical cuts being included with extended cuts.

Another vote for the Ben-Hur 4-disc special edition set, specifically for the 1925 silent version (which is superior, in numerous ways, to the Oscar-winning film)...as well as a friendly reminder to fellow DVDTalk pollsters to use "Other/Not listed above" as an option in these threads.

Tough choices here. I had to go with Wizard of Oz but King Kong was a close second.
