id hold out for the Goodfellas. I hear the video quality/sound isnt that great, and that a special edition is coming out next year.

my suggestions:
Saving Private Ryan
Leon: The Professional (international edition, in fact, just get the superbit) <--- has love, comedy, and action, all in 1 movie!
Heat
Godfather box set (remastered version rumored...but nothing solid yet...)

yes, check out this link and go down to the screen shots. you can see the more detail and more vibrant colors, as opposed to the blurry and "washed out" effect on some images.

Indiana Jones Box Set
Back To The Future Box Set

Edit:
The BTTF box set is currently out of stock, but you will get the discount for it. Estimated shipping date for me is the 14th, should be the same for anyone else that orders it.

Stanley Goodspeed: You've been around a lot of corpses. Is that normal? [points to twitching foot]
John Mason: What, the feet thing?
Stanley Goodspeed: Yeah, the feet thing.
John Mason: Yeah, it happens.
Stanley Goodspeed: Yeah, well I'm having a hard time concentrating. Can you do something about it?
John Mason: Like what, kill him again?

In addition to what's been mentioned:

Rounders
Carlito's Way
Scent of a Woman
A Few Good Men


eh, I could go on for quite a while. I'll stop there :)

Edit: I forgot Dazed and Confused. You must buy this movie. I command you. I've probably seen it about 100 times myself. Honestly. We used to watch that at my house all the time when we were, uh, tending to the plants and there was nothing better to do. Love that movie :)
