    I will be purchasing my 100th dvd most likely in the next month. I am at 92 right now. Any suggestions for what my 100th one should be? I want this one to be a really great dvd. Here's a link to my list. My "On Order" section of my list represents dvd's that I plan to buy next. Your suggestions don't have to be from this list. Thanks for the input.

    I'd recommend

    Citizen Kane
    12 Monkeys
    Equilibrium
    Minority Report
    Mystery Science Theater 3000 - The Movie
    The Matrix
    The Matrix Revisited
    and for your 100th:
    Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers - Special Extended Edition

    Of course if you don't like Matrix I'd throw in any Pixar Movies, fantastic DVD sets.

    Lord Of The Rings - The Two Towers: Extended Edition would be a great 100th purchase.

    Go for TTT extended. I just went through this with my 200th. Ironically, my first DVD ever was The Matrix. It just so happened that my 200th was The Matrix Reloaded. I didn't even have to put off or make any additional purchases to get there. It just happened that way.

    Without a doubt, no question; it should be:


    SHOWGIRLS

    with me, milestone DVDs, such as my 100th, 200th, 250th, and so on have to be special to me. My 100th DVD was the Fantasia Anthology. Technically, it was 2 movies in it, so it was like 100 and 101. My 250th and 251 and 252 were Indiana Jones.
    I say go for some box set you have been wanting. It seems more special, at least to me.

    I'd have to reccomend

    Casablanca
    Singin' In the Rain

    or, my personal pick

    Jackie Brown

    This is one of my favorite films of all time and the 2-disc set is fantastic. Great movie, great picture and sound, great extras, you can't go wrong.

    I wouldn't recommend Naked Lunch as a blind-buy, as it isn't to everyones' tastes and many people are disappointed by the film. If ever Criterion released a DVD strictly for a fans, this is it. I love it, it's a fantastic book and film and I'm a big Peter Weller fan. [​IMG]

    Brazil: Criterion Collection
    Without a doubt one of the best DVD's ever. (and I like the movie way more than Lord of the Rings.)

    In all due respect, Estevan, Brazil and Lord Of The Rings are quite dissimilar films. I love both - I love all of Gilliam's work.

    If you don't like that film, you're dead.
