    I have been buying DVD's since 1999, and I never seen so many DVD's that I want released on one day. I think my CC will melt on that day [​IMG]

    A good selection, and I'm glad a lot of people will be pleased, but I won't be buying any of them. The only two I'd be tempted by are Amadeus and Singin' In the Rain, and since I already have these and I've promised myself only to buy a new version if it's totally and outrageously better, I'm not going to duplicate items in my collection.

    Gosh, only 6 titles for me that day:

    A Hard Day's Night
    Mary Tyler Moore: Season 1
    Murder by Numbers
    Singin' in the Rain
    True Romance
    The Unforgiven

    Of course, 4 of those are doubles and 1 is a 4-disc set...

    Could be a very expensive day, indeed.

    And Jesse, maybe I'm an idiot, but I don't understand the Village People reference.

    The day Can't Stop the Music was released was the greatest day in the history of DVD releases! Nothing else can top it (except maybe Thank God It's Friday!) [​IMG]

    Good thing my G/F gives me a Best Buy $50 gift certificate every month for our anniversary[​IMG] It will make that day a bit easier.

    Man, I just bought One Flew Over The Cuckoo's nest about a month ago. I will upgrade though b/c it is one of my all time favorite's.

    Also, True Romance, Trading Places, Swingers, and Amadeus I will be getting.

    The greatest day in the history of the DVD format was, and always will be, October 16, 2001 ...
    (The worst day was April 4, 2000 ...)

    September 24, 2002 can't hold a candle to October 17, 2000 or probably October 8, 2002 this year. [​IMG]

    I'm guessing that Joseph was referring to the birth and death of DiVX!

    If so, then I can't disagree!

    Geez ... This will probably be a little anti-climatic, but here's what I was referring to:

    DVD'S WORST DAY:
    April 4, 2000 : The day that The Phantom Menace was issued to VHS, VHS Widescreen, overseas LD, and overseas VCD. LucasFilm stated that there would be no Phantom Menace DVD "for the foreseeable future ..."

    DVD'S BEST DAY:
    October 16, 2001: The day the format was formally introduced to the Star Wars franchise, with the (then) catalog release of The Phantom Menace to DVD.

    In retrospect though, I have to agree with Aaron Silverman
    above that "The Day DIVX Died" may have been a much more memorable day for the DVD format....

    But I didn't buy "Phantom Menace" because Lucas tweaked it from the theatrical version, so he would've been better off releasing it the same time the VHS came out.

    9/24 is nice, but I will be getting only 3 titles:
    Beavis and Butthead
    Unforgiven
    Swingers

    8/6 is far worse

    LOTR 2-disc Widescreen
    The Simpsons Season 2
    V The Final Battle
    Hot Shots
    Hot Shots Part Deux
    The Jefferson's Complete First Season
    Sanford and Son Complete First Season

    Also, 8/20, 8/27, and 9/3 have 4 titles each. Thats 19 titles in less than a month. Oh. My. God.
