There are alot of good movies that made it to laserdisc, but have yet to surface on DVD. Here's my small contribution to the list. Please feel free to add to it:

1. The Incredible Shrinking Man
2. Robinson Crusoe on Mars
3. The Monster Squad
I'm a classic TV fan. Widescreen? What's that?

"Howard The Duck"
"Who's That Girl"
"Michael Jackson's Moonwalker"

Oh. "Good" movies. :b

Actually guilty pleasures.
"Cookie" with Peter Falk & Emily Lloyd is another.

Presenting Lily Mars
Dangerous When Wet
The Opposite Sex (the musical remake of The Woman)

All of the above I sold on Ebay for about $20 each since they are not yet on DVD and hard to find.

I also sold my Baby Face/Night Nurse on laser disc, but I will not be selling my 2 Pre-Code Forbidden Hollywood laser disc collections, since it will be a long time until they all make it to DVD. (Although I understand the restored Baby Face is scheduled for release on DVD next year.)

Hamlet (1996)

This is supposedly coming out next year, but I'm not getting my hopes up until I see an official press release.
