    The Usual Suspects
    Alien
    Shawshank Redemption
    Saving Private Ryan.....
    the list goes on and on. It all comes down to what type of film you enjoy or do you mean from the point of view of showing your kit off to it's best?

    Three To Tango, and if you can't find this rare and collectable disc, starring the legendary Mathew Perry, if you search the classified threads, with a determined heart, you might be lucky enough to find someone with one for trade. (me)

    I love that film. I'd have it off you myself, but I already have it. So funny :laugh:


    With regards to the original question, the only 'must haves' in your collection should be your most favourite films. And "The Haunting" DTS (on its way to me as we speak :D ).

    Yes I'm pulling your leg. :)

    I'm sure some people might love the films I've typed. I don't!

    Really it's up to you.

    That’s a really hard question, what suits one does not suit an other.

    There are some disc that will give you surround system a good work out. Of these I have heard Titan EA is a good one.

    I would think Gladiator, LA Confidential, X-Men 1.5 would be nice to have in you’re collection.
    Also if you like Independence Day and Godzilla I would think they would give you system a good work out too.
    Buy your disc to suit yourself not other people, that way you will watch them again and again.;)

    And do not be afraid to experiment with the style of film. A good AV setup has the same effect as a good music only setup has on different styles of music. You suddenly find that films take on a whole new aspect that you missed on a poxy 20 inch TV.:clap:

    Dont joke ive only got a 24" widescreen at the moment! Carting around a 36" doesnt really appeal while im still a student! Certainly got plenty of interesting views from asking this question.

    Nothing wrong with a 24" :)

    Of course, every Pan & Scan release is a must NOT own ...

    And
    I bet Lord of the Rings is good as well on DVD. I cannot comment on it as I’m waiting for the box set.;)
