OH CRAP! I've seen them all. Although, I'm not sure I've seen Fiddler On The Roof all the way through. However, there are some terrific movies in the collection. My favs would be (YMMV):

Twelve Angry Men - excellent jury room drama
Some Like It HOT - hilarious Billy Wilder slapstick comedy
The Apartment - poignant love story
Judgment at Nurenburg - magnificent WWII war crimes trial drama with stunning performances by Tracy, Lancaster,.....oh hell the whole damned cast is outstanding.
Birdman of Alcatraz - Lancaster outstanding again in prison drama loosely based on fact.
Manchurian Candidate - juicy psy-ops/political drama
The Great Escape - marvelous WWII POW camp drama, again loosely based on fact.
The Pink Panther - Peter Sellers hilariously over the top as Inspector Clouseau.

Okay, here's something that may turn out to be a good deal. DeepDiscount.com is offering an additional 25% off to High-Def Digest readers with the code HIDEFDIGEST25 from now until August 2nd. It doesn't work on preorders, so you can't order the new Battlestar Galactica Blu-ray box set yet, but it comes out before the promotion ends, so it may be the best price to be found for a while. Their price right now is $219.89, which is already ten cents cheaper than Amazon.com's price. If it does indeed allow an additional 25% off, that may be the way to go if you're impatient.

The code does work, making it $164.92 with free shipping, which is the best deal I can find on the box set. I just wonder how long of a wait it will be to find it well below that price. I've still only seen the first season, which didn't win me over 100%, but even if I didn't feel like keeping it, I know my brother-in-law and sister would love to have it. I'm still on the fence. Did any of you buy it, or are you planning on buying it?

So tempting... if only I hadn't seen every episode at least 3 times on Comedy Central...
