That's a great list! Quality movies, one and all. I found Schindlers List quite hard to watch in places. How about you?

Definitely. I've been to Israel twice now, and both times contemplated going to the Holocaust museums but I know I'd just turn into a blubbing mass at how cruel and inhumane humans can so easily be.
I've met two survivors, and their outlook on life is so live and let live.

I've also been to the remains of Laurence's railway in Saudi when I lived there as a kid, brought back some bolts and bits but have no idea what happened to them.

^^ Pans Labyrinth! A man with class. Lots of my faves in that list. Close Encounters too. Man, that takes me back. So much better than almost every 'Alien encounter' type film i can think of.

@xaccers, totally know where you're coming from. I can stomach remains of U-Boat pens and sea-wall fortifications but i'd totally lose my **** if i ever went to Auschwitz Birkenau!

Hell yeah, especially in blu-ray. I've added a blu-ray "tag" to the movies in the list. I love watching older movies and classics in blu-ray. 70% of my collection is in Blu-Ray at the moment.

I can't beat my older brother though.. His has A LOT of movies. We tried to put a price on it, but we concluded that the value of the collection is roughly $100,000 (he has a lot of special edition boxes and stuff)

I visited the one in Washington D.C. - Very Very difficult to get through the whole museum without shedding a tear.
