    My pics are:
    1) Shrek
    2) The Grinch
    3)Star Wars
    not sure about the rest, but heres a guess for the rest of the top 10.
    4)Snow White
    5)Rush Hour 2
    6)Planet of the Apes
    7)Mummy Returns
    8)Jurassic Park 3
    9)Tomb Raider
    10)Pearl Harbor
    BTW is there a site that lists an up to date list of the top selling DVD's of all time??
    Or is there any way we will be able to find out if mine or anyone else's picks are correct on these lists??

    My prediction:
    Top selling DVD from Oct. - Dec. is...
    "Episode 1: The Phantom Menace"
    # 2... "Star Trak: The Motion Picture"
    # 3... "Shrek"
    ----
    But then again, I'm just a dvd sales analyst for the national dvd committee,what do I know...

    I am a nobody, but I am quite sure that ST:TMP does not have a chance of beating Shrek. The market for Shrek is much larger. But I could be wrong...
    Take care,

    I think Snow White is going to surprise. I know for fact that my mother who has never purchased a dvd but knows alot of people in my family have dvd players and she is going to pick up several copies becuase this is a can't go wrong purchase for a gift. The grandmother factor is going to come into play and she is going to think "I'll get it for the grandkids but thier daddy is going to also like this dvd."
    Oh and Star Wars of coarse.

    #1 Gunmen starring Christopher Lambert & Mario Van Peebles
    #2 Operation Delta Force IV starring nobody you know
    #3 Operation Dumbo Drop
    #4 Britney Spears/N'Sync home movie DVD
    Seriously though, my guess is that Episode I, Rush Hour 2 and Shrek are going to kick ass. I don't feel that anything else has the same level of excitement around it (though I'm sure Pearl Harbor, Tomb Raider, JP3 and the like will also sell well).

    1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
    2. Episode 1: The Phanton Menace
    3. Shrek
    4. Rush Hour 2
    5. The Grinch
    My money is on Snow White for #1 simply because I think it appeals to the largest demographic... I am almost 18 and am buying it, I know that lots of you guys are older than me and are buying it... and parents will get it for their kids to watch... I think that its sales will be a pleasant surprise.

    My money is on Shrek, then Star Wars, then Snow White.
    I have never seen DVD advertising like I've seen for Snow White, billboards, commercials, bus ads, pre-orders at Best Buy, etc...

    Phantom Menace
    Shrek
    Snow White
    I'd place the Grinch over Snow White but people are starting to wise up to Disney's moratorium practices and with the undegradeability(is that a word?) of DVD more will buy than with VHS. Single 20 somethings will be looking to start a library for the future kids and this one will be a great start.
    If you single 20 somethings aren't thinking ahead, well, think ahead... [​IMG] This will be unavailable after a year or so.

    I am thinking ahead....
    I envision my kids watching Toy Story, The Iron Giant, Die Hard, Chicken Run, and The Neverending Story. For some reason I can't envision any offspring of mine enjoying Snow White. [​IMG]
    I might enjoy it now though. (Well, don't know haven't seen it in a long time.)
    Anyway,
    My bet for the biggest seller goes to Shrek, with Star Wars, Monty Python and the Holy Grail Special Edition, and The Grinch being other big sellers.

    If a movie is not available in OAR, than it might as well not be available at all.

    Bad Taste Ok so it won't be, but it should. Everyone should own a copy of Bad Taste. Exploding sheep are way cooler than Gungans or Dwarfs.

    I'll go with The Phantom Menace.
    ------------------
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
    -- Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain
