    The last five DVD purchases that I have made have been 2 DVD sets:
    1) Lawrence of Arabia
    2) Unbreakable
    3) Cast Away
    4) The Bridge on the River Kwai
    5) Dances with Wolves (DTS)
    And Tuesday will make it six consecutive DVD titles in a row that will be a two disc set, when I pick up Scorsese's remake of Cape Fear!
    And these are in addition to the 2 disc DVD sets that I already had, such as Gladiator, the Toy Story 2 pack, Jurassic Park and TLW, A Bugs Life CE, and several more that I am sure that I am forgetting!
    How many 2 disc DVD sets do you have?

    17 of my 109 DVDs are multi-disc sets. That comes out to nearly 16% of 'em. Interesting.

    I have 254 DVDs. The following are the two- and three-disc sets:
    1. The 10th Kingdom
    2. The Abyss
    3. Akira
    4. Alien (Since it only pertains to the first film, I like to count the "Alien Legacy" documentary DVD as its supplement disc…I got a double Amaray case to house 'em together)
    5. Armageddon
    6. Army of Darkness
    7. Boogie Nights
    8. Brazil (three discs)
    9. A Bug's Life
    10. Close Encounters of the Third Kind
    11. Dogma
    12. Fight Club
    13. Gladiator
    14. Halloween
    15. Hannibal
    16. Independence Day
    17. Magnolia
    18. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
    19. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (I managed to find the double-disc DVD-9 version)
    20. Unbreakable[/list=a]
      I also have Men In Black (limited edition) and Seven (to replace the flipper I currently have) on their way as we speak. I'd like to eventually replace my current DVDs of The Rock and the Die Hard Trilogy with the 2-disc version. I have the single disc versions of Meet Joe Black and The Mummy, but I'm happy with them and don't plan to replace them.

    I am surprised at how many people have the 2 disc version of T2 Ultimate Edition. Isn't the DVD-18 the one that was most widely available? Thats what I have. It came with the Tin.
