My wish list (of fictive dvds):

A special Edition of Blade Runner would be nice, with both the cuts on it.

A special Edition of Apocalypse Now, with the original version and the redux on it.  Personally I didn't really care for the extra scenes added to the redux.  It was a great movie as it was.

Kill Bill-the complete film

Top 3 in random order:
The Great Escape (though lousy extras)
The Godfather Trilogy
Back to the Future Trilogy

Don't know if I could narrow down my top 3 non-Leone films, but I'd say my favourite film of all time is Kurosawa's Ikiru. I rate all Kurosawa's films highly. My favourite non-Leone spaghetti is Keoma. Other favourite films of mine include The Wicker Man, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Mad Max 2, Nosferatu, Night of the Living Dead, 28 Days Later, Lady Snowblood and the Lone Wolf and Cub films. And of course Kill Bill, but since everyone likes that at the moment, I don't like to go on about it.

As for DVD wants well, at the moment I'm getting into Italian neo-Realism and German Expressionism. So my top 3 wishlist would be...

1. M
2. Ladri di biciclette
3. The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari

It's class.

Tough to narrow it down to three, but I would have to say...

Sweet Smell of Success
Blade Runner

And special mention to Punch Drunk Love, Apocalypse Now (original cut) Goodfellas and Raging Bull...

 8) DVD!!! I have many! region 1! uncut! collector's editions.... blah blah blah. there are a few more of my favourite movies of all time that are still to recieve the 'special edition' treatments they deserve:



BATMAN (1989)


HEAT (I think this is coming soon...)

LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL ( I have the uncut Euro-version but there is room for improvement)


BLADE RUNNER (the works!)

 yes, if God were to bless my collection with these classics with directors' commentaries, trailers, teasers, etc. my life would be complete (man! I need some sleep!)

My No. one DVD wish, would be to own GREED. A 1923 movie directed by ERICH VON STROHEIM. I have seen a version of it, and it has one of the most stunning endings I've ever seen. But the version on release has been chopped to hell. The remaining scenes are, rumored to be buried in the vaults of, whats left of the MGM studios! :-\
Number two would have to be the BURT LANCASTER starrer ULZANA'S RAID. Again, I've seen a version of it and again the cut scenes are buried by UNIVERSAL or somebody else.  :'(
Number three. Well, number 3 would have to be the still lost but shot sequences in OUATITW. I.E. where Bronson is beaten up by the sheriff.
If I had a 4th, it would have to be all the movies I love with all the scenes intact as they were shot originally by the directors! :'( :'( :'(

This is always so hard, especially if Leone doesn't count.

1. Cinema Paradiso (Directors Cut)
2. The Adventures Of Robin Hood
3. The Deer Hunter

There are so many new/restored releases and old treasures that I want to get so listing a top three is impossible.  :-\
