    Just for sheer presentation, wealth of extra materials or quality of commentary...

    Fight Club: Two Disc set
    Boogie Nights: Two Disc set
    Toy Story 1 & 2: Ultimate Toy Box
    Indiana Jones: Trilogy boxed set
    Back to the Future: Trilogy boxed set
    Clerks: Animated Series
    LOTR: EE editions
    Moulin Rouge: SE
    Citizen Kane : SE
    Alien: Quadrilogy

    and I have a feeling I'll be adding Star Wars Trilogy to that list next week...

    and my "gotta get when I get the cash" list:
    Rushmore: Critereon collection
    Predator: SE
    Brazil: Critereon collection
    Batman Animated Series: Season one
    The Good, the Bad, the Ugly : SE

    So many DVD's, so little cash, so little watching time...
