    Ok, re-worded this one a little. We are looking for your nominations for the best discs of the year below. Once enough people have cast their nominations we will then open it up to a poll vote on the discs chosen.

    So nominate away in these Cat's;

    Best Picture on a disc Any Region?

    Best Sound Any Region?

    Best Extras Any Region?

    Best Film Any Region?

    Best overall R1 disc?

    Best overall R2 disc?

    Best overall Non-R1 Import disc?

    Best Studio of the Year, who has consistantly produced the best all round discs this year?

    Best packaging


    All nominations must be for discs released after Jan 1st 2003 and before 31st December 2003.

    Nominations close, December 15th at midnight

    Once the results are known we will do a special year round up feature at Total DVD Online and in the review forum here.

    Best overall Non-R1 Import disc? - The Classic (Korean R3)

    Best packaging - The Classic Korean LE Wooden Box + OST




    I know that the vast majority of you won't have a clue about this film and the Wooden box edition but I felt it was worth a nomination anyway as it is simply a stunning film in a stunning LE set.

    is this a bit like who is going to BBC sports personality of the year, BBC sorting team of the year, a no competition event?

    The Two Towers Extended Edition (R2)

    It would be nice to have some categories where this disc is excluded, not because it is bad (it is the best) but just to find some other premium discs.

    The only movie my entire family enjoyed over and over for so many months during the year 2003 was "Finding Nemo"

    I am too lazy to put that in every category that is listed on the thread.

    This is one hell of a thread, who's keeping count and when it changes, who re-counts!?!?

    maybe several pols with check boxes would be easier and once youve made your mind, thats it?

    My vote Moulin Rouge - on all counts.
