Thanks for injecting new blood into the thread, lb, and carrying it into the next wave of releases. I'll post a link to this updated version from my new thread The Ultimate Movie Club. Check it out by the way, new input is required.

Here are those rules and criteria you requested.

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.


Will post my updated Top Ten soon.

Cheers.
dt.

BUMPING UP FOR MORE PEOPLE TO VOTE!!! Anyone who hasn't yet voted (or not after December 1) VOTE!!!

I've updated the list, once more people vote I'll post it. This is a very close race, so the more people that vote, the better (and more representative of DVD Talk as a whole) this list will be.
