Opinions About Specific Movies and their DVDs

Titanic Once was enough & the DVD confirms it.
The Matrix Brilliant movie with a fully loaded DVD. Can wait for parts 2 and 3.
Terminator 2 Innovative special effects with an excellent story, love my Ultimate Edition DVD. Now if only the UE got to R4.
Star Wars Favorite childhood movie that has lost none of its appeal. Maybe if we use the force it will be released on DVD soon (with both theatrical and SE versions please George).
Godzilla Help - big lizard destroying stuff. I am a big fan of Jean Reno, but what is he doing in this movie???? You gotta love that sub workout don't you.
Independence Day America saves the world again, this time with even better special effects. Check brain at door before watching then you won't be disappointed. First rate special edition DVD release (could use DTS sound).
