Fast and the Furious

A Bug's Life (collectors Edition) or Toy Story (collectors Edition) if it counts as 1

The Fifth Element (SB)

Moulin Rouge

The Corrs-Live in London (Canadian 1.78 version only)

Tarzan (collectors Edition)

Gladiator

Bram Stoker's Dracula (SB)

Spy Games

A list of different sort of things, an overview of genres:

The Red Shoes

Muriel's Wedding

Spartacus



Britcom (pick one):
Fawlty Towers

Black Adder
(I recommend the Elizabethan one and the Restoration one)
AbFab (The series is broken into the last season in one and the earlier seasons in a set or three individual DVD's; the earlier stuff is funnier)
Monty Python a low number or the whole bloody business


Music (pick one):
Woodstock

The Last Waltz

Stop Making Sense

The Rolling Stones: Bridges to Babylon

Down from the Mountain


Walt Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Living Color

Casablanca
or The Big Sleep

Training Day

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
(Superbit)


Modern Science Fiction (pick one):
Starship Troopers

Dark City

AI



All are good films and are known to have good transfers as far as sound and picture (okay, the Britcoms may not be top of the heap, but their content is strong enough to overcome any shortcomings).
