This letter is incredibly tough for me because I have several titles that get a lot of repeat play in my house. I am going to go with Eagles: Hell Freezes Over, which edges the others out only because I use it so much as a demo disk when friends come over.

Runners-up: ELO: Zoom Tour Live, Emma, E.T., Eight Men Out

I also suspect that 8 1/2 would have made this list somewhere, but I haven't watched it yet, so I can't really say.

Most wanted "E" title: Electric Dreams

Almost all of these letters have been tough. Hell I have 76 just starting with B. But E is actually easier, I only have 14 of those.

Best film - The Empire Strikes Back (I've recorded my laser disc onto a dvd, so I consider this part of my dvd collection, even though it's never been released on that format)

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Wouldn't 8 1/2 go into the "numeral" category, or "O" since the Italian name is "Otto E mezzo"?

I'm going for The Elephant Man (1980).

Perhaps. But for me, that's like saying The Exorcist starts with a T. Posted Image

The only E in my collection is Experience the Deep which is 45 minutes worth of underwater scenes backed up by elevator music.
