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?

For ordinary men, it's a burning, fiery furnace.

I have 254 DVDs. The following are the two- and three-disc sets:
[list=1][*]The 10th Kingdom[*]The Abyss[*]Akira[*]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)[*]Armageddon[*]Army of Darkness[*]Boogie Nights[*]Brazil (three discs)[*]A Bug's Life[*]Close Encounters of the Third Kind[*]Dogma[*]Fight Club[*]Gladiator[*]Halloween[*]Hannibal[*]Independence Day[*]Magnolia[*]The Rocky Horror Picture Show[*]Terminator 2: Judgment Day (I managed to find the double-disc DVD-9 version)[*]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.

He's INTENDING to buy the just-announced box set of Matrix and Matix Revisited. WB is putting out the latter as a disc of additional supplements not on the prev. released DVD. Owners of the first disc can just buy the supplement, even if it IS a bit pricey. People who haven't bought either one yet can buy the box set.

DVD File had a blab about this, if I recall right.


As I read his post, my wife looked over my shoulder and expressed surprise that ANYone doesn't have Matrix yet. A damn fine movie.

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.
