The Darjeeling Limited, I haven't seen it since the cinema because I was holding out for a BD and it still hasn't been released.

Lost Highway because when it was re-released, I sold my original DVD, but then never ended up getting the new one and it went out of print pretty quickly. I could still get it off eBay or something but I'm all about Blu-ray now.

I'd quite like Satoshi Kon's other works to be released on BD this year, Paprika's the only one I own. I always avoided buying Perfect Blue because the DVDs didn't look good quality, so I haven't actually seen it yet!

Battle Royale - Come on Palidises Tartan!
The Terminator - I'm happy with the PCM 5.1 (which I hear is an upgrade over the existing 5.1) but want it to actually look like HD!

You want Mono. I want the 5.1 (that is specifically the 5.1 from the DVD, not a new one). Each to their own. No need to belittle anyone.

p.s - Include both, everyone is happy.

Cronenberg classics such as Videodrome, Scanners, and Rabid would be nice.
