I've been to Sugar Town and I shook the sugar down

Just wondering..

Which are the best 3 non-Leone movies in your personal DVD collection?

And which 3 is on top of your personal wish list (you know, when we get the money...)?

The first question I can't answer myself since all I've got is Leone and a couple of Carpenter flicks - and the Magnificent 7.

My personal wish list:

1. Fitzcarraldo (Herzog)
2. Godfather Box
3. Blade Runner de Lux-edition

Looking forward to be inspired!!

Blueberry, you need some Kubrick and Scorsese in your collection.  They hold up to repeated viewings.  

Michael Mann never gets boring either - "Thief" and "Last of the Mohicans" are my favorites.  Last of the Mohicans has a great soundtrack, really nice marriage of image and music similar to Leone.  Thief I love because its his first movie and shot on location in early 1980's Chicago, very gritty - James Caan was really good in this movie.


And what if your hand should shake a little?  And that Gringo so fast on the draw.

Fave DVD's would be:

 1. Raging Bull ( I agree General, every collection must contain Scorsese)

2. Fargo

3. Cinema Paradiso (Directors cut)


A wish would be for MGM to release a three disc box set of James Cagney's Angels With Dirty Faces, White Heat and The Public Enemy.

Wants:

Bladerunner would be good. maybe the 1982/1992 cuts in a those branching DVDs
like last years version of Ridley's A L I E N.
Theres suppose to be alot of Producer/Director bad blood, with Licence of Bladerunner concerning the Original/Director's Cut. Which is why it hasn't had its DVD special edition treatment as yet. Alot of stuff has been done Ridleys been looking a prints back in 2002. extras are done (Inc Mark Kermode's 2001 Channel 4 Doc 'On the Edge of Blade Runner' worthy on its own)... but its dead in the water. and Warner are very hush.. hush.. about details.  

Wouldnt mind that Aki Kaurismaki Japanese Boxset. Not a cheap thing thou.

Decent copy of Robert Frank's Stones film C%$ksucker Blues. But this will never happen. Have to make do with Dodgey bootleg VHS transfers.  :P

I didn't care for the "Director's Cut" of BLADE RUNNER.  I liked the Director's Cut ending better, with the film ending on the elevators closing instead of them driving away and Decker saying the girl wasn't built to die early like the other replicant.  However, I thought the voice over added to the film and was a nice nod to the movie's film noir feel.  And that unicorn was STUUUUUUPID.

Favorite non-Leone DVDs are:
1.  Brazil (Criterion Collection)
2.  The Complete Monty Python's Flying Circus Collection
3.  True Romance - Director's Cut (this Scott brother knows how to make a director's cut, adding more kickass action and no stupid unicorns)

General - you're right but I've seen the Scorsese and Kubrick films so many times already... in film clubs, on tv, rentals...etc.

I just mean, if one had just enough money to buy three DVDs and couldn't buy any other for a whole year, what would they be?

I haven't seen Malicks Badlands for 16 years or so, I have good memories of it though - I want it!! And I want Millers Crossing and Blood Simple in a decent version.

And by the way - yesterday my very limited collection got company by the restored version of Hitchcock's Vertigo - looking forward to seeing it.

Shorty - are those the best (non-Leones) in your collection or the ones you want really bad?

I got that Pixies DVD about a month ago. very good. European tour footage, Debaser video... nice 4ADD menus that morph the bands faces.
little disapointed i dosn't contain the Brixton footage in whole. Only in bits on the Documentry.
