Had a few great release, but overall not a BIG year in the BR Dept.

Favorite New = Sherlock BBC

Favorite Old = Jaws/Indiana Jones/E.T. (The Spielberg "Hat Trick")

My Top 3:
Jaws
Universal Monsters
Halloween II


I haven't watched E.T. yet, but I'm sure it would be up there.

I also agree with these statements:

Halloween II was a great release, just so happy to have the TV edit. Never would have thought that would ever be released on DVD.

The Universal Monster movies was a great set, though no new special features was kind of a down point for me.

Jaws and E.T. looked great and definitely should be mentioned!

only one? that's tough, here' three


David Lean Directs NoŽl Coward - yes I'm cheating since it's four movies, but still this is how a box set and restorations should look like
Jaws - thank god Universal included the original mono mix
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

and we haven't yet counted the soon to be released:

Lawrence of Arabia deluxe edition
Zombie Arrow edition
Finding Nemo (my fave Pixar film)
Trilogy of Life
Rashomon
Heaven's Gate

The question was, "Blu-ray release", so I think you're fine (and it's pretty tough to argue with your selection).

Star Trek: The Next Generation season 2: *Finally* Paramount decides to go the full nines with a Trek season set. An extended cut of the episode, "The Measure of a Man" will be a big draw.
