    The editors must have been drunk when they made that list.

    Good list, but...

    No Gone With The Wind: SE, Goodfellas: SE, and no Marx Bros. Silver Screen Collection.

    At least the 2nd Looney Tunes set and Warner's Hitchcock set made it.

    I agree with everyone else. Lost in Translation was a wonderful film but its not the 2nd greatest DVD of the year!

    Yikes. How the heck did they leave Gone with the Wind off the list?!? And it's almost as if the 100 DVDs that are on the list were just ranked randomly. [​IMG]

    Most lists suck, this list sucks more than most.

    No Gone with the Wind? Not one of the seven Walt Disney Treasures sets from this year?

    I call bullshit.

    Yeah, Lost in Translation was good, but not one of the top 10 DVDs of this year. Far too many TV DVDs near the top of the list, IMO as well.

    Obviously, they just picked their favorite films/ TV shows and not necesarily DVD presentation. Not having Dawn of the Dead Ultimate on the list...ludicrous!

    Kim Possible? Ren and Stimpy (released with edited episodes and some questionable transfers)? Balderdash!

    I can't blame any of the choices from the top 20 I saw. All are fine works-- Lost In Translation being my favorite film of 2003, The Fog of War being a powerful documentary (better than the low common denominator/emotional chord Michael Moore was going for with his film, in my opinion, though) and the TV show selections are great, reputable choices, though I don't watch TV regularly, much less TV on DVD. Some below 20 wouldn't have been included in my list. All this hype about Gone With the Wind! Sheesh. It was a big deal during Hays Code Hollywood, but feels damn dated now, unlike Rules of the Game, which is rightfully on Amazon's list and is from waaay back in 1939.

    Hans, best DVDs aren't necessarily best movies/TV shows. And Gone with the Wind is also from 1939, by the way. Both are great films and DVDs.

    I know Gone With the Wind is from 1939, that's my point. Rules of the Game holds up, Gone With the Wind Does not.

    I also totally understand that the "best DVDs aren't necessarily best movies/TV shows," but pretty bows and ugly dogs don't make pretty dogs. Ultimately, it should be about the movie. I'm sure the Amazon editors were thinking this with their list, hence many near bare bones DVDs' inclusion.

    I haven't seen The Rules of the Game (yet), but it's ridiculous to say that Gone with the Wind doesn't hold up. It's the American epic.

    And even if you absolutely hate the movie, the DVD is one of the best ever produced for a classic film.
