|Least Favourite DVDs||Predator Ultimate Hunter Edition (horrible use of DNR), Tremors (great movie but again, DNR)|
|Most Eagerly Awaited DVDs||Blu-rays of Batman TAS, the unaltered Star Wars trilogy...|
|Titanic||A magnificent achievement in contemporary filmmaking which remains every bit as exciting, spectacular and affecting as it was when first released.|
|The Matrix||Groundbreaking science fiction, merging unique ideas and philosophical concepts with exhilarating action sequences. One of my all-time favourites.|
|Terminator 2||An overrated sequel which hasn't aged too gracefully. Arnie makes more sense as a villain, Edward Furlong is irritating, the violence is toned-down, there's plenty of cheese, and the ending feels like a copout.|
|Star Wars||The original unaltered trilogy remains excellent, though Return of the Jedi has its flaws. The prequels are awful.|
|Godzilla||An overlong, lumbering blockbuster that actually manages to be somewhat entertaining. A guilty pleasure.|
|Independence Day||Extremely enjoyable and full of groundbreaking special effects. It's a true summer event film.|
