I'm of two minds on this. In one sense I too have most of the "must own" films I want. There are a few classic titles still outstanding I'd like, but for the most part I'm good when it comes to one shot epics. In another sense, there are many titles I still want, but these films are part of a "series". Things like the Bowery Boys, the Blondie films, numerous detective/mystery series (Crime Doctor, Boston Blackie, Whistler, Saint, Lone Wolf, Falcon, Torchy Blane, Perry Mason, etc.), the Andy Hardy movies, a few more Abbott & Costello films, and so on.
If we are talking one shot films then I'm pretty much set, but if we are talking series films then I've got a long, long way to go.
I'm not sure what to make of the OOP films, other than to say that I've seen dvds go out of print real quick from time to time and this just goes to show you can't sit on something for too long in this hobby. If you want it, you better find a way to get it within a certain amount of time. Don't count on it being around 5 to 10 years later. That may or may not be the case.
