DVD Talk's *NEW* Top 100 DVDs: Census Version 3.0 (VOTE NOW!)

This is the Third incarnation of this census, returning to include all the major releases of 2001.

LBPound has kindly agreed to keep score once again, so...get posting. Rules below.

What are your favourite movies on dvd? Here is an attempt to compile the ultimate listings.

List your Top Ten favourite discs in your collection (taking into account the extras, as well as the movie itself), in order of preference. Mark draws if applicable. Points will be divided between them thus: 1st, 7 points/2nd, 6 points/3rd, 5 points/ 4th, 4 points/ 5th-10th 3 points each.

eg.
1st = 7 points
1st = 7 points
3rd = 5 points
4 = 4
4 = 4
6 = 3
7 = 3
8 = 3
9 = 3
10 = 3

IMPORTANT: If all Ten Films are equally placed, the order you write them will be taken into consideration.
