Kingdom of Heaven: 4-Disc Director's Cut
A brilliant new cut of an already interesting film with the kind of special-edition treatment you only get from Lord of the Rings films... must-own.

Seven Samurai: Criterion Collection Special Edition
One of the very best movies ever gets one of the very best DVDs ever. Perfect compliment!

Dune: Extended Edition
The only thing missing is a David Lynch recut and a commentary.

Apocalypse Now: The Complete Dossier
Another DVD that perfectly mirrors the film: a work of frustratingly mixed genius and madness.

Forbidden Planet: 50th Anniversary Special Edition
Just plain cool. A simply wonderful transfer that makes me feel like a 5-year-old all over again when I watch it.

A History of Violence
A sensational film with surprisingly intimate making-of docs. The featurette on the shooting of the rape scene on the stairs
from the actor's standpoint was worth the purchase price of the DVD itself.

Blade Runner: The Remastered Director's Cut
Damn straight: with no features at all, it still makes the list.

The New World
If the transfer doesn't quite compliment the film's astounding 70mm photography it's only because the hour-long featurette was included on the same disc as the 135-min. feature.

Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut
Another director's cut miracle. Even as a kid, the second film left me cold. That I'm able to enjoy the new film as a young adult is a great joy.

two of my favorite films were made by John Ford

R1 Young Mr Lincoln from Criterion
R2 Prisoner of Shark Island Masters of Cinema

Both dealt with Abraham Lincoln in totally opposite points of view

Cheers

7. WARNER TOUGH GUYS COLLECTION
8. NETWORK-2 DISC SE
9. STATE OF THE UNION (even if it was shamefully bare bones)
10.WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF-2 disc SE



HD Releases:

2. THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD(extra shout out for 3 High Def cartoons)
3. REDS
4. BATMAN BEGINS
5. FORBIDDEN PLANET ULTIMATE COLLECTOR'S EDITION TIN
6. TROY
7. BLAZING SADDLES

Best Studio: Warner
Worst Studio: Sony

Biggest blunder of the year (other than the HD format war):

Paramount's decision to let its Republic library stay at Lionsgate (only taking back IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE), making sure that the worthy titles in that library will likely never get a decent DVD release.
