So far the last 3 episodes of Star Wars have not been released by Lucas. I don't know what's taking them so long but they need to get on the damn ball. Oh yeah, here are a couple of suggestions. 1. Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead 2. Godfather 1,2,3 3. Gone in 60 Seconds (kicks ass with surround sound) 4. Fifth Element (Just for the surround sound) 5. Pulp Fiction

Let's see, what do we have: Party Time with Bear in the Big Blue House. Sesame Street: 123 Count with Me Book of Pooh Mickey Mouse in Living Color Rugrats in Paris The Powerpuff Girls: Powerpuff Bluff The Powerpuff Girls: Down and Dirty The Powerpuff Girls: The Mane Event The Powerpuff Girls: Meet the Beat Alls OK seriously, how about: The Lost Battalion. That film should have gotten a lot more attention than it did. The Bridge on the River Kwai (Collector Edition) Amazon has it for a substantial disccount.

Ronin Have Red Dawn, awesome to see it widescreen again. The Spec. Ed. of Mad Max is a must have. Whole different movie in OAR and with the origional voices. The commentary is pretty entertaining as well. Desperado Superbit. Damn fun gun movie. No original Star Wars movies will be out for at least a couple years, when the prequels are done according to rumors. LOTR will be awesome when it comes out in August. In Nov. a spec. ed. will be out with 30 min. more footage cause the original wasn't long enough. Of course now you need a kick ass sound system with large subwoofer and an HDTV and you're all set. Almost forgot: I'm Gonna Git You Sucka!, great 10 dollar DVD. Robocop Predator with DTS American Pie and Fight Club.

Episodes 4, 5 and 6 from the Starwars series will be released on DVD. But Lucas made it his point to release them only after the DVD releases of Episode 2(coming soon in the theaters) and Episode 3. Which basicly puts the original trilogy on release announced somewhere in 2004. Probably be an ultimate edition pack(with more screens unshown) and an additional Ep. 1,2,3 pack with added scenes.(mind you Episode 1 DVD already has added scenes not in the original movie.) That's Lucasfilm marketing for you. My must have's BlackHawk Down (when released) We were Soldieres (when released) The original SW trilogy (whenever released) Hamburger Hill Platoon Full metal jacket(hate the fact it was released in it's original 4:3 format though). Heat Bringing out the dead(EMT's/Paramedics should love this movie). Terminator2 ultimate edition. and so on..

Well, pardon me for being a critic, but I see a lot of lousy recommendations here. Let me provide a few rules on things to AVOID: (1) All sequels or movies with I, II, III, IV, or V in the title. The ONLY exception to this is the Godfather II. (2) Any movie starring Tom Cruise, Keanu Reeves, Bruce Willis, Marlon Brando, or Mike Meyers. (3) There is a corresponding list of lousy/wierd female actresses, but since you at least generally get to see some TnA I will omit it. (4) Rio Bravo Here are a few DVDs that I think are worth having: WAR -------------------- The Patriot Last of the Mohicans Shenandoah Run Silent, Run Deep Patton The Bridge on the River Kwai Tora Tora Tora Midway Saving Private Ryan Platoon Full Metal Jacket Good Morning Vietnam The Dogs of War Heartbreak Ridge Mr. Roberts Dr. Strangelove SCI-FI --------------------- The Thing (original from 50s) The Thing (John Carpenter) Invasion From Mars (original from 50s) They Live Seven Days in May Mad Max The Road Warrior Predator The Terminator Contact Dr. Strangelove WESTERNS -------------------- The Shootist The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence The Big Country The Magnificent Seven The Wild Bunch Pale Rider The Unforgiven Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid BAD GUYS -------------------- The Godfather I and II Goodfellas Get Shorty Pulp Fiction Resevoir Dogs Fargo Silence of the Lambs MISC -------------------- Braveheart Gladiator American Beauty Hunt for Red October Red Dawn The Quiet Man The Right Stuff Cool Hand Luke The Sting The Graduate Dr. Strangelove Jeez, I could go on with this all day. Hope this helps. [;)] Edited to add "The Unforgiven"... Hard to keep track of all of them! [:)]

To answer my own question, according to WB, Strange Brew is scheduled to be released on DVD this summer. Woo Hoo! Take off, hoser!

Willow? Blech! And that last lethal weapon was very anti-second amendment, so scratch that recommendation. Not listed yet: The Man who would be king (Afghanistan!) Excalibur King of New York Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (for Alan Rickman's performance) Have to go through my collection for more ideas. Sadly the Japanese "Heaven and Earth" is only available on VHS, and oop and hard to find at that. Perhaps Ran and other Kurosawa films will have to tide you over. Wish they'd put out "Wild Geese" on dvd as well, dammit!

Boomer, I no speak with forked tongue. Cruise overacts... terribly. He's a scientologist, which means he's an idiot. And the "Top Gun" script was one of the worst of its time. The technical errors alone would fill a good sized tome, and the story line belongs more in the cartoon genre than the dramatic movie genre. Example of numerous technical errors: At the end of the movie when Maverick is launched to join the dogfight in progress 110 miles away he states he will be there in 30 seconds. That's a 13,200 mph (mach 18) Tomcat he's flying. [rolleyes]

If this is your bent, all of the Grateful Dead videos, especially Dick Latvala's "new" Vault picks, are MUST HAVE. Absolute clarity, soundboard quality maximum rock & roll!!!
Link Posted: 3/14/2002 6:36:34 AM EDT
marvl, complaining about Top Gun's technical inaccuracies is like complaining about those in The Patriot. I watch the history channel for factual info, and the movies for entertainment. Generally I watch the first and last thirty minutes of Top Gun. I think the aerial sequences are great.
Link Posted: 3/14/2002 7:45:15 AM EDT
Houston, I agree somewhat. I'll accept a certain amount of "poetic license", as when martial arts sequences are filmed with the players dangling from wires. But there is a point beyond which a lack of accuracy and credibility destroy the entertainment value of the film. For instance, if Mel Gibson's men in the Patriot were all armed with M16s you probably would have walked out. [:)] I love watching Tomcats fly as well as the next guy. If you cut out everything except the aerial sequences, you've got an excellent 10-minute movie.

I did. Following your line of reasoning about 'Top Gun' exactly how realistic did you find the ambush sequence where Mel and his two sons decimate the redcoats? Reloaded just a little too fast, didn't they?
