It seems at though the public has caught on about how great the DVD format is!

When I first got my DVD player I could name all the released DVD's off the top of my head. On other forums is was like a major event when a new DVD comes out. Now it seems as though DVD's are coming out faster then I have a chance to pre order them.

While many movies are now out on DVD many great movies still are not available on DVD. What movies do you wish were on DVD?

I can think of three big ones off the top of my head. (All of them Trilogys)

1) Star Wars
2) Back to the Future (which I hear is coming later this year)
3) Indiana Jones

What would you like to see on DVD?

Also waiting for BTTF.

I can't wait for Monsters, Inc. to be released (9/2002). I knew when I saw it at the theater that it was a keeper.

Neil - you can get them in multiple boxed sets (or at least most of them). Take a look at www.dvdpricesearch.com for them.

Yes, and the new SE of Terminator is a must own! T2 is also available in several editions.

I'm also waiting very much for Babylon 5 DVD's!

I always wait awhile to see if another release comes out with DTS or Superbit if it's not that way to begin with. Nothing irks me more than to plunk down $25 then another version comes out 2 months later that's better (probably for less money)!

RE: James Bond. If you are into high quality on DVD, the JB series has been ripped for poor PQ. Check out reviews at The Digital Bits before spending a wad for something you won't enjoy.

Song of the South. A classic Disney that I've never seen, but not PC enough to be released. My parents loved the movie when they saw it and have always wanted to share it with us kids (all of us kids are over 30 now).
