    I've got about 200 now (many people on this site will more than likely have over 1000 no though!) and the best for purely the audio / visual experience are Transformers, Iron-Man and Van Helsing.

    Daredevil is a great disc for sound but I know that is a film that divides opinion.

    Best bet is to just buy films that you enjoy - almost all blu rays have a better picture than the dvd equivalent and the HD soundtracks are great if you have a HD 5.1 sound system.

    Tell us a few of your favourite films - that might help.

    Th version on disc is the extended version which is better than the regular screened one, most people agree with that.
    Part of Daredevil was used as a demo disc for the sound the bit where he first notices his powers first.

    Do you like your food 'Some Like It Hot' or 'Ice Cold In Alex'?

    I made my mistakes with dvd, buying discs for 'demo' purposes. Ended up with a massive collection that never gets used.
    My rule for blu's - under a tenner and will it get watched at least twice in the next 12 months. I may break the rule if it's a favourite.

    That's exactly what the OP is asking - if you've ever worked in a rental shop you'd be amazed at how many people ask the assistant for "a good movie which I would like", and then complain on return they didn't like it.

    I worked in a video store from '97-'99 and you're not wrong.

    I quite liked the idiots that would come back and rant "Here, mate! That wasn't in English!"

    No! Really? The big sticker that says 'SUBTITLED' didn't give the game away?
