This is a unique book idea: Region-specific DVD guides are available on-line but not in print. This work is perfect for use as a guide for buying, or for renting from the phenomenally popular DVD clubs. It is the perfect Christmas present for the film buff in your life. Here is the ultimate guide to the burgeoning world of cinema on DVD - the 300 movies you must own, from "Airplane!" to "The Wizard of Oz". DVD sales now far outstrip visits to the cinema. Indeed, film studios have realised that they make far more money with DVDs than with the original release - and have started tailoring DVDs accordingly, creating numerous special editions, box sets, widescreen transfers etc. The film fan who wants to buy the definitive version of, say, "This is Spinal Tap" is faced with a tough choice - there are several different versions available, with different edits, voiceovers, outtakes and so on. "The DVD Stack" is the definitive guide to 300 classic movies on DVD, right down to the best possible edition of the movie - and where in the world to find it.
