    I am a DVD nut, and have a collection of over300 titles, I was one of the many HTF'ers who was recently compelled to buy a LD player, for the specific purpose of owning the Star Wars Trilogy. When a friend gave me his whole LD collection, I ended up owning a TON of titles. I only intend on keeping the best few. The extra content and lush packaging of LD has a strong appeal, and I am looking for titles that offer something special. My current collection includes:
    Star Wars: Definitive Collection
    Star Wars Trilogy: 1989 WS Pressings
    Blade Runner Criterion (Theatrical Cut)
    King Kong Criterion (includes commentary)
    Lawrence of Arabia Criterion
    Bram Stoker's Dracula (includes commentary)
    Raiders of The Lost Ark WS
    IJ and the Last Crusade WS
    Jaws: Signature Collection
    Grand Prix
    Hearts of Darkness
    The Great Escape (inludes John Sturges commentary)
    Poltergeist (includes making of)
    THX Wow!
    All of these titles have that certain special something. Are there any other discs I should get? Ones that have commentary or special features not available on DVD? A few I know of are:
    The Frighteners Signature Collection
    Halloween (w commentary)
    The Game Criterion

    There's really a TON of applicable discs, but it really all depends on personal taste.

    I have searched many threads, and I have come up with no new ideas, that why a started a new thread. I especially like horror and sci fi.

    If you like the Alamo there is a LD box set that contains over 30 minutes of footage not on the DVD.
