    For me it was the Matrix, at the time it was one of the most popular DVDs so my parents got it for me as a christmas present 3 years ago. Since then its bloated from 1 to 80 with Monty Python and the Holy Grail being DVD #80.

    my first was a free reg1 copy of Goldeneye.

    It came with my ifrst player - an imported Toshiba 3006.

    Hell I was so green I watched it for ages in anamorphic mode as it filled more of the screen - it was four years ago!

    For the record the in those days this 'vanilla' player cost £550 or approx $750.

    American Pie. I bought a DVD player because I wanted to see the unrated version, needless to say the differences were disappointing. More Nadia my ass!

    Almost 200 discs later I think I'm hooked.

    Lethal Weapon and In the Line of Fire - not much was around in Early Fall 1997. I didn't want The Mask or Twister. I was too busy buying laserdiscs[​IMG]
    The first DVD that I loved was Contact:SE. Great movie, great DVD's! They have come a long way in 4.5 years!!
    Take care,
    Chuck

    Batman (1989) was the first DVD I got for myself back in late 1998. Rumble in the Bronx, Mr. Nice Guy and The Fugitive soon followed.

    My DVD player came with Unapix's calibration GOLD disc and a Sting DVD...

    The first real disc I got was The Abyss: SE.

    Still a great early DVD despite the non-anamorphic video.

    Also, my two newest DVD's are the two Mickey and Silly Symphonies DVD's by Disney.

    Don't laugh, but my first DVD was MI:2. I never saw it in the theater, and I wanted to show off the superior video quality of my new DVD player to my friends and I heard that that disc would get the job done. Needless to say, I don't think I've watched it since [​IMG]

    Way back in the fall of 1998, when I got a PC-DVD drive, I promptly went to Circuit City and picked up Blade Runner nad Contact on DVD.
