    They showed it here last night. Honestly they skipped amazing amounts of great SEs and seemed to be more worried about the movie than the qualiy of the DVD. When doing a "best DVDs" list that supercedes

    I saw bits and pieces of it at work yesterday.

    I know "Gump" was #4 and "Jaws was #3 -- what were
    the top 2?

    In fact, if anyone can remember, what were the
    top 10?

    Thats bull, Forrest Gump doesnt hold a candle to Star Wars Ep1&2, Fight Club, Moulin Rouge, LOTR EE, etc. It shouldnt even be there.

    As I recall, T2 was something like #8, and the SW prequels were #9. The Bond, Rocky, and Die Hard sets got in there in the teens as did Beauty and the Beast SE. Jurassic Park was no. 20. The 6th Sense got in there too.

    The Godfather saga #1!!! I guess that show that the quality of the DVD had absolutely NOTHING to do with their rankings! Those DVD's where absolutely horrible video wise and if anything should be on the worst 10 list! Even though the films themselves are classics that should not be the sole reason to rank the DVD's! It's not fair to potential buyers to rank a DVD(s) as the #1 only for them to find out after purchasing them that the video is horrible!

    Interesting to note the absence of Fight Club, which has taken the NUMBER ONE spot on quite a few of those lists in the past few years. But I doubt it's really an Access Hollywood-type film to promote.

    Who cares? Another set of opinions [​IMG]

    Take care,
    Chuck

    Sven, yes it does. It was made in the 80s. As I have said 80s films used some of the worst film stocks ever. I can count off right now how many beloved 80s movies look horrific. Highlander, even with the new Anchor bay transfer still looks worse than Godfather 3, Last Starfighter looks worse, Glory and a bunch of others
