    Exclamation DVD's you HAVE to own!

    A thread for film fans really. Despite the fact that you can literally download anything from Disney cartoons to hardcore pron these days, there are some things you must have that are original.
    Which DVD(s) should be in your private collection, and why?

    Being an Audi forum, Ronin is one that that comes to mind, everytime it's on TV, we all like to give a reminder, especially a mention of the carchase which introduces the Audi S8 as the star of the show.

    American Beauty - best film of recent times, and you can watch it again & again, just brilliant concept, brilliant dialogue, oh and Mena Suvari getting her adolescent kit off of course.
    Fight Club - just outstanding in every way
    Betty Blue - the only sub titled film I would recommend, Beatrice Dalle is quality even when she pokes her own eye out.

    Schindlers List? Yes that's one you just have to watch again & again!
    Powerful film, but you only really ever want to see it once, preferably back in 1993 at the cinema.

    Fair comment but that film should be shown again so that people do not forget what happened. Like wise with shooting dogs.

    Also JoJo asked
    Which DVD(s) should be in your private collection, and why?
    so my answer above is why they should be in peoples collections

    Being an avid DVD collector (I own 1400 DVD's) I thought I'd post my must haves' by genre.

    Action
    The Hitcher - A superb remake of a movie classic.


    Adventure

    Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers
    This is a great follow up to the first movie. The build up to the big battle scene is phenomenal the tension is amazing a must see but watch the fellowship of the ring first which is also great.


    Animation
    Wallace And Gromit - The Curse Of The Were Rabbit
    The last film from Ardman Animation and a real beauty.


    Biography
    The Queen 2006
    Helen Mirren at her very best.


    Comedy
    Freddy Got Fingered.
    Astonishingly tasteless comedy. Watch out for the birth scene.


    Crime
    True Romance
    Very violent but totally absorbing.


    Documentary
    Super Size Me
    Shocking insight into McDonald's practices.


    Drama
    Green Street
    Fantastic performances from Elijah Wood and Charlie Hunnam. The energy of the film is great.Wicked soundtrack, great script and an overall very cool film.


    Family
    Charlie & The Chocolate Factory
    Johnny Depp is good at turning his hand to anything he applies himself to. He makes a wacky, fun Willy Wonka.


    Fantasy
    Premonition
    Storyline is a clever idea and there are some genuinely spooky moments in this film. It is also quite moving.


    Horror
    Hostel
    Classic Quentin Tarantino. Don't bother with Hostel II though.


    Mystery
    Identity
    Very underrated film. Complicated and diverse plot but totally engaging.


    Romance
    Sleepless in Seattle
    An old one but a good one. A warm and compelling love story.


    Sci-Fi
    The Core
    Get inside the earths core. Brilliant Sci-Fi Adventure. Just don't take it too seriously.


    Thriller
    Number 23
    Good plot, good storyline, good effects, great acting, excellent atmosphere, superb editing and great sound.


    Now I know a lot of people will disagree with the above choices. I have steered clear of the obvious normal choices and listed a few of my favorite films. I've deliberately chosen some obscure titles and I'm not saying that everyone should have these in their collection but ,if your renting a DVD and stuck for chose, then it might help you make a decision and pick something you might otherwise overlook.
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.

    Memento is a good one to have on DVD so you can watch it through, get confused then watch the special feature that re-orders the scenes so it all makes sense. Great film.

    Well I'm not going to re-post a load listed above, as I can see a lot of my collection above.

    My fav all time film is Apollo 13 just love that film, could be as I have the book Lost Moon on which it is based.

    A recent addition that I would recomend is The Wire. HBO American gritty drug cop series. Just watched Series 1 (Christmas pressent from Kate the Mrs) and I'm now looking for two and three box sets.
