Ok, Ok, my title might be a bit miss leading, or at least you might think I am about to ask the same old question everyone else has already asked and answered here. I wanted to start a fun little thread.


I've got the system, and a growing selection of dvd's. Been sitting here at work thinking of what to watch when I get home, and nothing in my collection is standing out to me. So I thought I would head down the the local BB and get me a few new titles, but nothing really of interest is coming out this week. I wanted to start a thread and ask everyone for some suggestions of their favorite titles, and it might give me some inspiration for something I haven't thought about in years. I'm not concered with if its reference or not, or if it was a huge hit, but looking to see what everyone out there has hidden deep in their dvd stack, that they pull out once a year to watch and enjoy. Things I've over looked or havent heard of that I can get my hands on.


Thanks for the help guys.

It's a mix of stuff I've never seen and stuff I haven't seen in a long time. Some of my favorite DVDs by mail have been ones that I didn't even think would be worth renting under the old B&M rental scheme.

What genre are you lacking in the ones that you own? Get that.



For example, I hardly own any comedies. Most of the DVD's I own are action/adventure/suspense. When nothing stands out to me, I'll usually go rent a comedy (or put one in my queue). Determine what you're lacking and rent it.

Here is what I recommend:

Go to www.imdb.com and take a look at the top 250. As you start working your way through the list you will run across movies that you just love, and will want more of the same. Then look up other movies with the same director, actors, or genre. That will lead you to still more movies. Soon you will sit at work thinking about all the movies you "need" to watch.


Have fun.

for some different movies:


My Blue Heaven

The Sweetest Thing

Whos Afraid of Virginia Wolf

Bowfinger

Dark City

Nothing But Trouble

Jason X




then of course, there are the usual standards, the Terminator movies, Matrix, etc, but everyone knows them.


try Twister with DTS sound and crank up the surround-sound to monster volumes and the effects of the tornadoes are staggering.
