Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (Bilingual Widescreen Edition)
1.  Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (Bilingual Widescreen Edition) DVD ~ Harrison Ford
The list author says:
  "Best ADVENTURE flick to date. Also check out Cutthroat Island, an underrated pirate adventure with a strong female protagonist."
CDN$ 9.97   Used & New from: CDN$ 8.95
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (138 customer reviews)

Born Free (Sous-titres français)
2.  Born Free (Sous-titres français) DVD ~ Virginia McKenna
The list author says:
  "One of the best ANIMAL movies, but don't forget National Velvet with Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney."
CDN$ 15.99   Used & New from: CDN$ 5.52
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Sleeping Beauty (2-Disc Platinum Edition) (Bilingual)
3.  Sleeping Beauty (2-Disc Platinum Edition) (Bilingual) DVD ~ Mary Costa
The list author says:
  "One of the best ANIMATED feature films. Unfortunately, like anything else Disney, it's overpriced! You may save some cash by not getting the platinum edition. If it's returned to the vault, try e-bay."
Used & New from: CDN$ 18.78

Are You Being Served?: The Complete Collection, Series 1-10 [14 Discs]
4.  Are You Being Served?: The Complete Collection, Series 1-10 [14 Discs] DVD ~ Mollie Sugden
The list author says:
  "Leave it to the British to serve up the absolute best you can get in COMEDY. The complete TV series, 69 episodes each of 30-minutes duration, has extremely high replay value as well. Steep price."
CDN$ 110.92   Used & New from: CDN$ 89.95
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Jurassic Park Adventure Pack (Jurassic Park/ The Lost World: Jurassic Park/ Jurassic Park III)
5.  Jurassic Park Adventure Pack (Jurassic Park/ The Lost World: Jurassic Park/ Jurassic Park III) DVD ~ Sam Neill
The list author says:
  "Probably the best CREATURE FEATURE, but only the first film. The sequel is crap, the third okay. Another excellent creature feature is Gremlins. A pleasantly watchable low budget feature is Crocodile."
CDN$ 46.99   Used & New from: CDN$ 15.96
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (93 customer reviews)

Bonnie and Clyde (Two-Disc Special Edition)
6.  Bonnie and Clyde (Two-Disc Special Edition) DVD ~ Faye Dunaway
The list author says:
  "Still a treasure in the CRIME category. Doesn't beat The Godfather, but they're really not comparable."
CDN$ 29.96   Used & New from: CDN$ 7.97
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (71 customer reviews)

Exorcist, the
7.  Exorcist, the DVD ~ Ellen Burstyn
The list author says:
  "The Exorcist still offers the best in DEMONIC HORROR, but don't get this 3-disc pack. Like Jurassic Park, the sequel is crap, but the third film is actually quite spooky."
CDN$ 34.97   Used & New from: CDN$ 30.00
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Titanic (Widescreen)
8.  Titanic (Widescreen) DVD ~ Leonardo DiCaprio
The list author says:
  "No contest. This is, to date, the best in the DISASTER film category.  Having said that, make it a point to watch The Day After Tomorrow as well."
CDN$ 23.77   Used & New from: CDN$ 0.04
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,398 customer reviews)

The Thorn Birds (1983)
9.  The Thorn Birds (1983) DVD ~ Richard Chamberlain
The list author says:
  "Pure DRAMA at its best. Like Doctor Zhivago, a perfect blend of film and music. I'm still waiting for this to be remastered in 5.1!"
CDN$ 58.78   Used & New from: CDN$ 46.18
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (127 customer reviews)

Poltergeist (Bilingual) [Import]
10.  Poltergeist (Bilingual) [Import] DVD ~ JoBeth Williams
The list author says:
  "Probably the best in the GHOST STORY category, but take a look at Sidney Furie's The Entity, a vastly underrated heart-pounding gem starring Barbara Hershey."
CDN$ 16.44   Used & New from: CDN$ 3.49
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (161 customer reviews)

Doctor Zhivago (Widescreen Special Edition, 2 Discs)
11.  Doctor Zhivago (Widescreen Special Edition, 2 Discs) DVD ~ Omar Sharif
The list author says:
  "Absolutely the best HISTORICAL epic. It edges out Gone With the Wind because of the perfect blending of music and film. Don't settle for anything less than the remastered 5.1 surround sound edition"
CDN$ 39.84   Used & New from: CDN$ 16.43
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (130 customer reviews)

My Fair Lady - 2 Disc Special Edition [Import]
12.  My Fair Lady - 2 Disc Special Edition [Import] DVD ~ Audrey Hepburn
The list author says:
  "Still the most charming, feel-good MUSICAL of all time! The bonus disc includes alternate versions of "Show Me" and "Wouldn't it be Loverly," sung by Audrey Hepburn herself."
CDN$ 24.95   Used & New from: CDN$ 6.29
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (153 customer reviews)

Jesus of Nazareth
13.  Jesus of Nazareth DVD ~ Full screen
The list author says:
  "This mini-series, clocking in at over 6 hours, beats everything else in the RELIGIOUS category. Unless, of course, this isn't your religion."
CDN$ 17.69   Used & New from: CDN$ 11.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Notting Hill [Region 2] [DVD] Hugh Grant; Julia Roberts; Richard McCabe (japan import)
14.  Notting Hill [Region 2] [DVD] Hugh Grant; Julia Roberts; Richard McCabe (japan import) 
The list author says:
  "Notting Hill is an excellent ROMANTIC COMEDY, but there are others, such as Never Been Kissed and While You Were Sleeping."
CDN$ 6.11   Used & New from: CDN$ 0.77
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (281 customer reviews)

Bram Stoker's Dracula (Two-Disc Collector's Edition) [Import]
15.  Bram Stoker's Dracula (Two-Disc Collector's Edition) [Import] DVD ~ Francis Ford Coppola
The list author says:
  "Dracula will always win hands-down in the VAMPIRE FILM category. First, the version with Gary Oldman, then Frank Langella, then Louis Jourdan. But check out the TV series Kindred: The Embraced as well"
CDN$ 16.32   Used & New from: CDN$ 10.64
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (336 customer reviews)

Noir: The Complete Series (Anime Classics) [Region 1]
16.  Noir: The Complete Series (Anime Classics) [Region 1] 
The list author says:
  "One of the best ANIME series. Two female assassins so a lot of violence. Engaging storyline delving into Japanese and Italian crime syndicates. Good first choice if new to this art form."
CDN$ 44.96   Used & New from: CDN$ 26.79
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

The Terminator
17.  The Terminator DVD ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger
The list author says:
  "FUTURISTIC SCI-FI at its best. Although this version of the future is all doom and gloom, it offers a good story and a thrilling ride."
CDN$ 5.97   Used & New from: CDN$ 2.25
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (331 customer reviews)
