    I don't usually find more than 2 or 3 'must have' titles released a month, but

    October
    Beauty and the Beast, Windtalkers, E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial, Spider-Man, The Sum of All Fears
    November
    Band of Brothers, Star Wars - Episode II, Zulu, Ice Age, Men in Black II, Spirit - Stallion of the Cimarron (for the kids)

    Um, this might be a long shot, but I reckon it could have something to do with Xmas?

    October will set me back around £300 in DVDs, November about £400. December's a quiet one though - about £200.

    nope I'm buying Scorpion King too although I must say that apart from the remaining blockbusters like star wars, spiderman and of course the three disc brotherhood of the wolf DVD I think the run up to Christmas is fairly quiet. I only have a few discs on preorder (including Zulu... fousands of them:D ).

    October is going to be my most expensive month before christmas still its giving me a chance to develop the old back catalogue and buy some gamecube games.

    Plus let's not forget Insomnia in October and LOTR extended version in November :D

    I'll be buying Minority Report as well Kev ;)

    Every month is an expensive DVD month for me :rolleyes: :D

    Windtalkers for sure.

    Also looking forward to Strange Brew (1/10). My favourite comedy film of all time on DVD at last.

    Windtalkers and Insomnia aren't worth owning IMO. I'll be going for Star Wars, E.T, Minority Report and LOTR Extended Cut though.

    It's because all the 'Big Summer Blockbusters' (or 'mindless spectacles' as I prefer to call them) get their rushed through DVD release in time for Xmas (or Christmas as I prefer to call it).
