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.
