    I am compliling a list of DVD'd for my loved ones to choose from when choosing my Chritmas Presents.
    What DVD's would you suggest, they must be good films, have interesting extra features and have a good 5.1 soundtrack to maxamise the potential of my home cinema system.
    I have already thought of star wars, fight club and saving private ryan.
    You thoughts please.

    there are tens of thousands (maybe an exaggeration) of threads dealing with what discs to get to demo your HC set-up. Do a search for demo discs or something like that.

    That said no DVD collection is complete without Gladiator!!:devil: :rolleyes: :D

    Rather than a list of all time faves tho, it does beg the question "What is on your Xmas list this year?" In my case it's not very much 'cos I buy most stuff for myself when it comes out:blush:

    So for what it's worth here's mine:
    MIB2
    Eddie Izzard - Circle
    Robin Williams - Live on Broadway
    The Last Waltz
    The Thin Red Line (DTS)
    Platoon SE

    So if anyone wants to buy me any of those titles ,,,,,,,,, :D

    I'm hoping for Minority Report as it will save me buying it. I have dropped enough hints so fingers crossed someone will get it for me. I thought it was a good one to drop hints about as I don't care which region I get in this particular case (not much difference between them) :)

    I find the problems with relatives buying DVDs is that they tend to buy them from the shops, thus they are region two - when sometimes (often) there are better region one versions. (ungrateful or what!) :D

    I'm getting region 1 Tigger as it's got DTS on it and my son won't listen to anything in Dolby Digital.

    Make sure they are in DTS otherwise they are not worth having.

    If it's any help - Ice Age, Cats & Dogs & Toy Sories are also favoured by 3 year olds.
