    It's now three years since I got my DVD player and I'm about to buy my 200th disc. When I was approaching my 100th I asked the forum to have a look at my collection and tell me what I was missing.

    I was fortunate enough for a few of you guys to take the time to scan the list and put forward some great suggestions - I'd like to try again for my 200th!

    The last 8 purchases have all been from TV, and the two on pre-order just now are Season 3 for Ever Decreasing Circles and The Brittas Empire - so that's 10,and I'm trying hard to resist Frasier too, so lets make it a film please[​IMG]

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    I'm insanely jealous that you have Wallace & Gromit's Cracking Contraptions on DVD. That being said, I see that we have similar tastes, so I must recommend Run Lola Run.

    Well, from looking at your list I can tell we have different taste in movies so it makes any sugestions harder.

    In general I can feel the absence of Al Pacino movies in your list, maybe you could consider one of those for your 200th.

    Regards,

    Andre

    Stewart,
    You have an excellent collection.
    I noticed though that you're a little light on "classic films" - so perhaps I could recommend a few.

    Citizen Kane
    The Godfather
    Casablanca
    Chinatown
    Sunset Blvd.

    If you prefer something more modern...

    Aliens
    Jaws
    Pulp Fiction
    Toy Story
    The Usual Suspects

    Traffic: Criterion Collection would be my main suggestion
    I noticed an absence of Evil Dead films
    2-Disc of Unforgiven?

    No point in asking and having people take the time to reply if you don't listen!

    I'm thinking of Run Lola Run (gets great reviews from DVD Empire's customers too[​IMG]

    Or Toy Story - maybe a box set of both 1&2?

    Is the 2 disc Unforgiven really worth the upgrade - great film but it's on my list already??

    Stephen - W&G Cracking Contraptions not out over there? If you have a multi region player I can get you a Region 2[​IMG]

    Mike - TRUE! TOTALLY light on classics - just never got into them. It's the same with classical music - I know I'm missing out but just can't get started:b

    Thanks to everyone who replied.

    Hey Stewart,
    How about the first and second season of Coupling? A little more T.V., and frankly the funniest show on T.V.
