    Hello all-

    I just recently took the plunge into laserdisc (due to our good friend George Lucas). I will soon be receiving the original Star Wars Trilogy (THX "separates" version), but I was wondering if any laser-freaks had a good suggestion for other LD's to look for. My player does not do AC-3, so are there any really good Dolby Surround discs that are worth owning? Specifically, I am looking for other good "not on DVD yet" titles (besides SW, Indiana Jones, and BTTF), or laserdiscs where the LD exceeded the DVD. Any suggestions? Thanks for the insight!

    --Tom

    The Jaws CAV box set, so that you get the full-length documentary that was abridged for the DVD.

    The E.T. CAV box set, because the same thing will probably happen with that documentary.

    If your player has a digital out and you have DTS capability, the DTS versions of The Shadow, Timecop and Sudden Death.
