Tracked POLL: Your 20 most-wanted UNRELEASED titles

I haven't done this poll since last January so I thought it would do it again.

List the 20 unreleased-on-DVD film titles that you are waiting for most.

I will track the votes and post the results in a few days. I encourage you to peruse Jadzia's Unreleased list here:

http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...74#post1584154

If there are titles that you want that are not on her list, please post in her thread and let her know.

Some Quick Guidelines to the Poll, please read them![list=1][*]This is for films and documentaries only. No TV shows. Made for TV and straight-to-video titles are OK.[*]List no more than 20. Anything more than 20 will be disregarded. List way over 20 and I'll ignore your whole post.[*]Music titles should already be released on another format or have seen a theatrical release. Be exact about the title. Don't say "An Iron Maiden concert DVD" or something to that effect.[*]To qualify, the title must have never seen a DVD release in Region One. OOP titles do not count. Titles released in other regions but not in Region One do count.[*]List individual film titles separately (as opposed to "The Back to the Future Trilogy" or "The Star Wars Films").[*]It is at your discretion whether or not to list titles that are, as of yet, unreleased but have a confirmed future release date. Also, very recent films (still in or just left the theater) should be avoided.[*]If multiple films have been released with that exact title, try and put a year to avoid confusion. If I have to guess, I may guess wrong. [*]If you can, put them in alphabetical order but I'll live if you don't. [/list=1]

Have at it. I'll post my personal list shortly.

I know it's a little bit against the rules but the only movie I want on DVD that hasn't been released is Explorers. I could give a damn about any other movie.

Nope, not against the rules. You may list up to 20. Sorry I didn't clarify that. Your vote for Explorers will count.

I'm sure I'm in the minority(by a long shot)and I know I"m showing my age but since I know almost all the other movies people mentioned will eventually be available I would like to see all the old Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes movies.In particular The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Hound of the Baskervilles.
