Opinions About Specific Movies and their DVDs

Titanic Awe inspiring, watch at any time type of movie spoilt by a disgraceful excuse for a DVD.
The Matrix Great film, great DVD (DTS would be nice though).
Terminator 2 Wow! Superlative DVD presentation of a genuine classic.
Star Wars More than movies, they have become symbols of popular culture. Brilliance exemplified. Let's hope Mr Lucas can finish the series off with the best movie yet!
Godzilla Horrible, horrible. I've had a restraining order put out on this mess.
Independence Day One of those movies I hate then love then feel indifferent to.
