Lol, Batman And Robin isn't even worth it for free.

Starship Troopers
The Fifth Element

Both for a friend who already had them. So I kept them even though I didn't have a DVD player yet. I don't remember how long it was until I finally got one.

My first player came with those as well; I don't recall if they were in the box or mail-in, though.

As for the first disc I bought, I believe it was either the Who's Tommy or Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.

Had the same offer when I got my first player. They came in the mail.

Pretty sure my first two purchases were Dance With the Devil and the first Blue Velvet release.

Blade, the granddaddy of the modern superhero movie and ,in many ways, the best. Doesn't get the credit it deserves. It's why I bought a DVD player in the first place. It had bulletime effects in it before the same thing blew everyone's mind in the Matrix for chissakes.

Bought it before I owned a dvd player. Probably in late '99. Had to rent one to watch it. Of course, I had to run the dvd player through my VCR, but at least Evil Dead wasn't Macrovision'd like the other dvd I rented.

not sure what my 2nd dvd was. Maybe The Matrix. ??

Can't remember exactly, but I read about some CompUSA sale to clear out all their DVDs around late 2000 I think. I think I picked up The Talented Mr. Ripley first.

Re: What's the 1st DVD You Bought?

My first two DVDs were Spiderman and Star Wars II - Attack of the Clones, which I received with a DVD Player as a Xmas Gift in 2002. The Next Day, while browsing through the DVD Aisles at Best Buy looking for some additional DVDs to purchase with the Money and Gift Cars several relatives sent me, I noticed they had marked down the price of the Thunderbirds Mega-Set, that had the honor of being my first DVD Box set of a TV Show.

The first volume of Jeeves & Wooster, which I ordered the very moment I saw it on Amazon. That was 2001. Six months before I even owned a DVD player. I'd just about worn out my VHS tapes of the show and was ready to move into the new technology.

Not 100% sure exactly but I know the first DVDs I bought were all the Quentin Tarantino & Tim Burton film that were out at the time.

The Matrix was my first DVD - and I still own it. Wouldn't give it up for anything! I'm just glad it still plays.

Bought Armageddon, Jerry Maguire, and Mission: Impossible back in 1999 at Tweeter, a full year before I had any means of playing them.

In the subsequent years, I've sold them off for their double-dips.

I can only remember 3 of the 5 DVDs I bought at the same time as my player.

The original releases for:

Babe (full frame, yuck)
The Matrix
Blade Runner

Re: What's the 1st DVD You Bought?

My first DVD was The Rock in May of 1998. My buddy bought it for me as a birthday present.

I didn't even own a player at the time but I still have the disc today. Had he bought me the VHS tape, it would have been gone years ago.

It's non-anamorphic, single-layer and rather grainy compared to the crisp transfers they were able to produce a year later.

I ended up buying a Toshiba player that came with Eyes Wide Shut and Any Given Sunday.

Brazil. I wanted to check out all the different versions, so that's partly why I decided to get a DVD player.

Not purchased... a gift: Cowboy Bebop - Complete Series. Still one of the best gifts I have ever received.
