Just wondering what DVDs you guys watch . . .

Oh yeah, someone in my family, as a graduation present, bought me The Godfather DVD box set. I still haven't gotten around to watching it, because I don't care for shoot-'em-up pictures.

I don't know if you're joking or not, so I'll take this seriously.
The Godfather and Godfather II are awesome, the best ever IMO.
Godfather III should never have been made. Go ahead and spend an afternoon or evening with The Godfather-you won't regret it! White Gold

Oh, I can watch just about anything except if its too violent. The main we watch repeatedly though, is Fellowship of the Ring, in both its forms. Pretty much every day my kids don't have school or wrestling tournaments one or both will watch it.
I'm really glad they have finally set a release date for the Two Towers! Fresh Meat!! Lion

I have the theatrical and the extended versions of LOTR DVD. I love listening to the commentaries on the extended - pity there's no Viggo in the commentary though.
Blue Velvet, Blair Witch Project, Band O f Brothers (boxset), 24 1st season (boxset) Psycho (with Vince Vaughan and Anne Heche), A Perfect Murder and ABBA - The Winner Takes It All are my favourites thus far.

DVDs I intend asking Santa for include:
TTT theatrical and Extended
Harry Potter 1 & 2
Star Wars Episodes 1 & 2
Walking with Dinosaurs
Walking with Beasts
But I'm always on the lookout for more Smile

I buy used dvd's from the video rental place, and Target has the new releases marked down several dollars if you can get there the first week they're out. Very Happy

I rarely buy DVDs (so far only good films I have that I bought are Evolution and LotR), but my dad gets a lot of the latest films soon after they come out (I'll be watching Matrix Reloaded pretty soon).

Today I watched 28 Days Later, and it is an amazing film. The opening is great - they had to totally close off central London to film that sequence.

I have a small DVD collection with titles like "The Shawshank Redemption", "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" and "The Adventures of Ford Fairlane - Rock & Roll Detective" (arguably the best vorspiel movie ever).

Eagles - Hell Freezes Over.......What painful memories that tour brings back ....... I sat on the phone all day to buy tickets to that concert and got them in the end .... only to have to give them away as I had to go into hospital the day before the concert. Crying or Very sad

I'd love to get that DVD to help make up for what I missed out on.

The reason we got a DVD player in the first place is because we wanted Twin Peaks season 1 on DVD because the VHS quality on those is abyssmal. So That was the first thing we got. Since then we've aquired several more, my favorites being:

FOTR extended edition
Amelie
Six Feet Under season 1
Chicago
Moulin Rouge
Lilo and Stitch
Planet of the Apes box set
Harry Potter 1&2
The Shipping News
American History X - I have to emotionally steel myself for this one.
Toy Story 1&2


But some of my favorites are also on VHS:

Schindler's List - This one too.
American Beauty
the Terry Gilliam trilogy - TB, BM, and HG
Magnolia
Ladyhawke
Trainspotting
Ever After
Run Lola Run
The Straight Story
Rushmore
Fight Club
Titus
The Wall
Pulp Fiction
most of David Lynch's movies
and many more. Laughing
