    I don't know about you, but I haven't had a slow DVD year since 1996. [​IMG]

    There are plenty of titles that I don't see myself passing up, but chief among them will be the Animatrix DVD, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Theatrical, TTT Extended Cut, and whatever nice catalog releases will be coming.

    The Chaplin special editions from Warner-MK2 are alone going to make me think of new purchasing strategies.

    I already purchased Metropolis: Restored, Watchable Edition, Goldfinger: SE, Sunset Blvd., FOTR: EE, MST3K: Collection 1, The Producers, The Thin Man, and The Complete Goofy.

    It looks like I'll be getting...

    The Circus/A Day's Pleasure: SE
    The Gold Rush/Pay Day: SE
    The Kid/The Idle Class: SE
    The Chaplin Revue/Shoulder Arms, The Pilgrim, and A Dog's Life: SE
    A Woman of Paris/Sunnyside: SE
    Limelight: SE
    A King In New York: SE
    Around the World in Eighty Days
    The Adventures of Robin Hood
    Casablanca: SE (if it has an Ebert commentary)
    The Jazz Singer (1927)
    Vitaphone Collection (rumored)
    Sunrise (eventually...)
    The Day The Earth Stood Still
    Song of Bernidette
    The Mark of Zorro
    MST3K: Vol 2
    MST3K: Vol 3

    Man I had 2003 planned as a slow year for buying new DVDs. These are the only ones that I planned on getting:

    Die Another Day
    LOTR: TTT (theatrical and extended)
    The Indiana Jones Trilogy (if it ever comes out)
    The Matrix Reloaded
    Alien Quadrilogy (maybe)

    I know for a fact that I'll end up buying more than these - once you start buying DVDs you cannot stop [​IMG].

    Addicts, you're all ADDICTS.

    . . .My name is Justin, and I'm an addict.

    Though my upcoming list isn't that comprehensive, most of you have hit the nail on the head. If I can get review copies of Family Guy and Futurama, and maybe Harry Potter and Roger Rabbit, that would help.

    Yeah Jeff
    I was thinking about that. How much longer are they ? And they are restored as well. But how different is the story ?
    Also they are a little exspensive and only 4 episodes per disc.

    The worst (or best) thing is that More and More titles come out every day.

    Remember back in the late 90's when there wasn't a big selection and you could go a few weeks without wanting anything. [​IMG]

    This past month for me was slow. I Picked up a couple of movies and some sci-fi tv show stuff that came out. But looking ahead things are starting to pick up again. Just when you think you know whats coming a new release is announced for movies and other tv shows.
