For some reason I was thinking about this today. Which 5 DVDs would you keep if you had to pick only 5? This is harder than you might think! Here are mine:

1. Gladiator
2. The Matrix
3. Toy Story Ultimate Toy Box (might be considered 2 or 3 DVDs but what the heck - it's a hypothetical question anyway)
4. Notting Hill
5. The Rock - Criterion Collection

3 of my 5 were easy for me, the last two spots could have gone to about 30 movies!

* North By Northwest
* The Toy Story box.
* Mousehunt (go ahead, laugh - it's one of the most rewatchable comedies I have)
* The Phantom Menace
* Breakfast At Tiffany's

What's surprising isn't really how hard the last one was, but how easy the previous four were.

Toy Story 1/2

Heathers

Oh Brother where art thou?

Fletch

Happy Gilmore( I had to choose between Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, and Christine, and chose Happy even though it's 1.33 open-matte, Hey the *&%$#@s didn't give me a choice, and it's a must!!! )

Yes, I believe that you can count a box set as one DVD (heck, I did!). Why not - it gets you a lot more DVDs!

I'm anxious to hear from some of the HTF'ers who have thousands of DVDs, as their choices must be really tough(RAF, are you listening?)
