Just for sheer presentation, wealth of extra materials or quality of commentary...

Fight Club: Two Disc set
Boogie Nights: Two Disc set
Toy Story 1 & 2: Ultimate Toy Box
Indiana Jones: Trilogy boxed set
Back to the Future: Trilogy boxed set
Clerks: Animated Series
LOTR: EE editions
Moulin Rouge: SE
Citizen Kane : SE
Alien: Quadrilogy

and I have a feeling I'll be adding Star Wars Trilogy to that list next week...

and my "gotta get when I get the cash" list:
Rushmore: Critereon collection
Predator: SE
Brazil: Critereon collection
Batman Animated Series: Season one
The Good, the Bad, the Ugly : SE

So many DVD's, so little cash, so little watching time...
