    Fanfare please:

    Ladies and Gents it's that time of the year again.

    This is how it works: you send me (via PM only please) your overall top 5 DVD's of the year.

    i will then collate all the PM's into a list leading to our number one of the year.

    A Couple of Notes:
    The list is limited to 5 as i have to collate the results and doing more than five could prove a nightmare.

    you can include any DVD you like from any region, any title. I will do my best to produce two charts: one will be by title and the other will be by edition (e.g. Hero - i've already had votes for different versions - from the same region!!!)

    The RETURN OF THE KING EE CAN be included - i know its not out yet but based on the quality of the previous two EE dvds its bound to be excellent.

    the closing date for nominations will be 20th December with the winner (and final chart) being published on 22nd December.

    Thanks in advance.

    Stuck for you.

    Agree with west, maybe Top 5 would be better.

    Do these have to be Region 2 DVDs, or can they be any Region?

    It may just me reading it wrongly but do the nominations have to discs released in 2004 or can they be released in previous but only just purchased this year?

    How is it ludicrous? surely its ludicrous to think it will be crap? The previous 2, are 2 of the finest DVD's ever released, do you think that ROTK: EE will be a poor release? with a ropey pictrure and bad sound? with extras that tell you nothing?

    I really do think that you are being pedantic about it - but it will be a mute point in less than 48 hours.

    i dont really think that Godfather is far comparison - i'm not talking about the quality of the film - i'm talking about the quality of the "DVD" itself. (MENUS, EXTRAS, PIC & SOUND QUALITY)

    from the votes i've recevied so far i think that many members are confused by this its not the quality of the film that will make it DVD of the year its the quality of the DVD presentation - hence DVD of the Year NOT FILM of the year.

    Well my ROTK EE has shipped today, and i belive some people already have theirs. So including it in your list wouldnt be wrong (if youve bought it this year that is).

    ...well I'm sticking with Lake Placid (I can justify it by saying that I liked the cover artwork) although my other 4 were for the quality of the disc and presentation.

    Will our top 5 be ranked, or just taken as is? I mean, will my #1 pick be given any more weight than my #5 pick?

    Edit: Also, does anyone know of a good site for checking the release date for a DVD. (as opposed to the film's release date) I've got a couple that might have been released in 2003, but I'm not 100% sure.

    i will admit that i stated this as a forum service, and some the responses i.ve had have been, how shall i put it.... ungrateful.

    but if people dont like what i do, then they can always do it themselves :laugh:
