    My top three? Not necessarily in this order: [​IMG]
    1. Superman: The Movie - it was my first purchase. The story, colors of the restored transfer, and John Williams' music: WOW!
    2. Terminator 2: Ultimate Edition - outstanding sound
    3. Planet of the Apes (2001) - loads of extras!

    Hmmm...

    1) Toy Story - Ultimate Toy Box: Reference quality audio and visuals, wealth of EXTRAS, and damn good movies.

    2) Cowboy Bebop - Perfect Collection: The entire collection of one of the quirkiest, and most entertaining anime series. PLUS a cool soundtrack and packaging.

    3) Usual Suspects - Special Edition: A well deserved re-rendering of a terrific movie. This Bryan Singer Film is truly done justice here.

    My three:

    1) Eagles: Hell Freezes Over (DTS) Great audio, sounds like you are IN the concert

    2) Matrix Not my favorite movie, but hey.....I just bought a DVD player, and I need to impress my friends.

    3) Video Essentials Absolutely neccessary for setting up my new DVD player (and most likely the accompanying surround-sound system)

    Thanks for listening,

    John Salley

    Well im my mind, the first thing I would want to do with my first few dvds is impress someone (mainly myself!) & get value for money as well as see what the format really has to offer, hence I offer these suggestions:

    1. The Ultimate Toy Box - wonderful presentation, plenty of extras and demo material to boot.

    2. Gladiator - quality 'action' movie, wonderful audio and video and a decent amount of extras

    3. Terminator 2 Ultimate Edition - Really pushes the DVD format to the next level in terms of audio, video and extras.

    1 - Saving Private Ryan DTS - Sound (Best example of how a home theater can immerse you in the movie.)

    2 - Fight Club - Extras ( Shows how the supplements can make you appreciate the movie even more.)

    3 - 12 Monkeys - Extras (The documentary on the making of the movie is by far one of the most informative out there.)

    1.) The Matrix - It shows off most of the features of the DVD format as well as providing a entertaining way to exercise your home theater with the great visuals and sounds.

    2.) Gladiator - Excellent picture and sound with loads of extras.

    3.) Seven Samurai (Criterion) - It's a great classic film (one of my all-time favorites) with one of the best commentaries ever recorded.
