    I assume the thread-starter was inquiring what our individual "Dream DVDs" might be like if only we could coax some nice studio executive into producing such low-profit items. [​IMG]

    I've got one that would most certainly bankrupt the company distributing/producing it. (But it's fun to dream about nonetheless.) [​IMG] [​IMG] ..........

    Extras would include:

    - A documentary on the history of the Academy Awards going through its creation, its humble beginnings, and the worldwide phenomenon
    - A documentary on the hosts of the show
    - A featurette detailing the voting process
    - An extensive decade-by-decade breakdown of the Academy Awards featuring interviews with historians, Oscar winners, and more. They should share all of our favorite award show gossip. [​IMG]
    - A featurette on all the different auditoriums, etc that were home to Oscar through the years
    - A featurette on the making of one of the Golden statuettes
    - A featurette where all the historians rant about who should've won the Oscar!
    - A featurette on the Oscar hype: including the creation of the poster, marketing, and of course, the red carpet and fashion!
    - A featurette on the writing of a show
    - A featurette on the day in the life of PricewaterhouseCoopers accountant working on the ballots!

    - Trailers, clips, and film posters for all the nominees.

    - Show highlights: basically allowing direct access to the good parts
    - Profiles for all the nominated films and people
    - Oscar Rules as well as a list of films eligible for each award in each year
    - Footage from the Scientific and Technical Awards

    Packaging would be convenient and feature a replica of an Oscar statuette as well as a hardcover book and Academy Awards Soundtrack!

    Now, I can't say I love the decisions of the Academy. It's all politics really. But I can say I love the show for what it is, entertainment!

    David, why no Andy Griffith set?

    My dream DVD sets:
    The Complete Oakland Raider collection
    Every game ever played
    A menu featuring Al Davis remarking that since I own the DVD he is now suing me.

    The Complete NWA/WCW collection
    were I to get this I'd have to build a warehouse for all of that material.

    With content like that I wouldn't need extras...although I'd never be able to watch it all unless I decided that leaving my house was no longer something I needed to do.

    I am fortunate enough to own my "dream" dvd. My favorite movie, Traffic, was given the Criterion treatment. So, I guess my dream dvd would have to be:

    TRAFFIC: THE CRITERION COLLECTION
    -Better transfer than the existing one (if possible)
    -Better audio than existing (not possible, since this is Soderbergh's desired mix)
    -More special features that the excellent ones already on the disc
    (I would like an 8-hour documentary on Soderbergh)
    -Better cover than one existing (not possible)

    Mine would be

    The Val Lewton Collection

    Same titles as the laserdiscs but with commentaries, documentaries, music and effects tracks, trailers, poster art, and more!

    Add to that The Thin Man Collection and I'd be very happy!
