    I, Robot was a brilliant film :smashin: , I went out and bought the collectors dvd the day after renting it! Star Wars & LOTR have also woked their way into my collection but i wasnt too impressed with the others.

    VERY scary !

    I couldn't even think of five half decent DVDs last year.

    I've got three from the list which I think was the only three DVDs (current films) I bought last year...2004 was a VERY BAD year for DVDs IMO, then again 2005 is proving to be much the same :(

    Sign of the times I guess.

    Sorry four, Little Britain too.

    Didn't like Potter, Day After and I Robot.

    Not a Star Wars fan and have not seen and don't really want to see Love Actually

    That just leaves Nemo but now starting to get bored of those type of films.

    To paraphrase The Who's Tommy -

    "Got a feelin' 05 is gonna be a good year..."

    After an uncharacteristic bumper crop of Summer season goodies at the cinema this year (with fingers crossed that The F4 makes it a clean sweep), October-November is going to be a very spendy time, with, no doubt, deluxe editions galore of said movies abounding...

    :eek:
    Just noticed the link on the original post!

    I thought this was just a list of personal faves, but it is actually The Top 10 selling disks of 2004 from official British Video Association figures.

    In that case I'm gobsmacked :eek: at how low Star Wars was on the list!

    Not that surprised at Star Wars. Some people are too young to appreciate it and a lot of the fans are too snobbish to buy the 'enhanced' versions.

    * "Lord of the Rings: The return of the King"
    * "The Day after Tomorrow"
    * "Little Britain: Complete first series"
    * "I, Robot"
    * "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl"
    * "Star Wars Trilogy"

    Are the 6 I have, none of the others interest me in the slightest....and of those 6 Day after Tomorrow and I Robot were very so-so :rolleyes:

    I personally was shocked to see Pirates of the Caribbean so low on the list.

    Sorry to tell you kevo - i think "those type of films" aren't going to go away.

    Nemo is a lovely film (but rember its not just a film - its a colourful nanny :D )

    Wasn't Pirates released in Xmas 2003?
    In which case the bulk of the sales would have been from then?

    Got them all apart from Star Wars Trilogy and Pirates OTC. Seen pirates a few times but never bothered buying the DVD and i'm happy to wait for the full 6 film box set of Star Wars - seen EP's 4, 5 & 6 at least 50 times each (mainly as a child) so in no massive rush to see them all again. :smashin:

    Pirates wasn't really my cup of tea either.

    I have the above 8 on dvd. However, I would only put 3 in my essential film list (LotR; Star Wars; Finding Nemo)

    Are mine, although LotR: RotK is by proxy from getting the boxset, and Love Actually was (like others it appears) for the woman. I've seen Nemi and Pirates, just havent bothered getting the DVDs, and "Day" is very mediocre.

    Pity they dont have a full list(?) as often its the next 20 or so sales thats more interesting, as these are the ones beyond the hype, yet sold well enough to put up the odd "viewers choice" as opposed to block-busters that were always going to sell well anyway.

    I, too, didn't think 2004 was a 'bumper year', and was quite shocked to find I owned most of them. Have to agreee with Pauley, though, I reckon 2005 will be a much better year. I'm already offering up Man On Fire as being a classic, and there are loads of summer blockbusters to come. Can't wait! :D

    Man on Fire is a good film. :clap:

    Your right in saying that 2004 was a lean year. :(

    Maybe you should start a new thread on the best / most anticipated of 2005??

    And what happened to your old avatar? Not that I don't like the smileys... :) :cool: ;) :rolleyes: :D

    Go for the new thread I will post there, good idea. :thumbsup:

    I thought it was time for a change, seeing as I have been called a member of the 'smiley gang' I thought I would have a avatar to reflect that. A nice bit of colour and a few smiley face's :D

    nowhere on that list does it say that those DVDs are in order one way or the other. I would be surprised if the Star Wars trilogy was only Number 10 because it's one of the most highly anticipated DVD releases ever.

    I only have three on the list which are i, robot; Star Wars trilogy and return of the King... The rest of the list do not interest me in the slightest
