    I read all the time about how frustration sets in ...with how you think that " " will never be released...here's the ultimate sacrifice to cover any copyrights and music rights or what ever $$ issues held up YOUR holy grail

    I would give up a hefty sum of money to see Ally McBeal seasons released.
    As it stands I'm going to be paying some slimeball on ebay to bootleg them for me so I can hack my DVD player and watch them region free.
    It goes against everything I believe in but ya know, that's the price ya pay for Ally!

    i would sell Shawns girlfriend for an anamorphic copy of Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry.

    other than that, i can't think of anything that would make me want to give up even 5 of my favorite dvds for.
    there are a bunch of titles i would still love to see, but looking over my collection, i'm very happy with what i already have to enjoy.

    I'd give away John's dvd collection, Shawn's girlfriend, Stacy's home theater and Paul's car for a compeletly uncut, and fully restored version of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. But even that holy grail wouldn't be worth trading my 1000+ dvd collection for.

    I would pay a totally unreasonable sum of money to see a Rosemary's Baby special edition.

    Actually, scratch that.

    Let's make it a Rosemary's Baby: Criterion Collection

    Just typing it makes me shake with misguided excitement!

    For all of that, I would want the original, uncut version of Star Wars that was released in 1977 on DVD, with none of the "improvements" of the so-called "special" edition, AND without it having Episode IV at the top of the prelude roll.

    I thought there was a special edition of Rosemary's Baby.

    I would like to a "Repulsion" special edition. There was a Criterion Laser of this title, but no DVD.

    I wouldn't sell anything or anybody for this DVD release, but I really would like to see Fandango on DVD. One of my favorite Kevin Costner movies.

    I think we should try to strike a deal with the studios.

    They get Shawn's girlfriend.

    We get all of the above and my short list of:

    The Sting (I'm gonna go bald if I keep scratching my head trying to make some sense of why this title hasn't been given a proper release)
    Song of the South
    St. Elsewhere
    Leave It to Beaver




    And I'm really looking forward to the release of Ragtime this fall. AND, we didn't even have to give up Shawn's girlfriend to get it!!!

    Dean, lol!

    I agree someone should lose a nut if it ever happens.

    Seriously there is no such DVD. I love all my movies and no single one would be worth trading ALL the other's for.

    Ken Russel's The Devils, uncut, anamorphic, w/ all "lost" scenes either reinstated or available as bonus material...no doubt about it...I've paid 100$ plus in the past for Criterion laserdisc sets, so I'd happily drop a decent amount to see The Devils

    also, Grindhouse's Cannibal Holocaust, perhaps the most notorious "coming soon" dvd title in history...PUT THE D**N DVD OUT ALREADY!!!!!!!

    Star Wars Original Trilogy with a 20 minute intro apology from Georgy saying he screwed up on the CGI, special editions, the prequels, etc., and donate all his money to HTF. Why twenty min? why not...

    I think the one item that fits the bill here for me would be the entire day's performances of Live Aid, UK and US.
