Opinions About Specific Movies and their DVDs

Titanic An okay movie made with a huge budget which must have been exhausted by the time the DVD was released
The Matrix The first DVD I bought, and the one I use to demo the format to friends.
Terminator 2 Loved the film, haven't seen the DVD.
Star Wars Lets just hope that the rate of DVD player ownership keeps expanding exponentially... I'm sure the canny Lucas & Co are waiting for maximum exposure for their marketing dollar.
Godzilla Good fun, with an excellent cast. Haven't seen the DVD.
Independence Day Bubble gum for the eyes, also haven't seen the DVD.
