'E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial'

Spielberg's 1982 "E.T." reigned for years as the all-time box office champ, and it's still a beloved classic. Rumors have it being released in October, so stay tuned (it's up for preorder on Amazon).

'Ed Wood'

Arguably Tim Burton's best movie (and perhaps his only really good one).

"Fantastic Voyage"

A favorite of mine as a kid, I couldn't resist adding it to the list after a reader suggested it.

'Jaws'

So the shark might look a little fake in HD on the closeups, but "Jaws" will still be a must-have Blu-ray when it comes out later this year (August 14).

'Lawrence of Arabia'

When the Blu-ray format was first being previewed, "Lawrence of Arabia" was Sony's poster child for the format's interactivity features (you were able to call up maps and history lessons in the middle of the movie). Alas, Lawrence has been deserted so far, but it's due to launch overseas soon, so a release in the U.S. couldn't be too far off.

'Mulholland Drive'

Some people prefer "Lost Highway," but we're pining for "Mulholland Drive," which made an appearance on HD-DVD.

Both "Rear Window" and "Vertigo" are included in the upcoming "Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection" (September 24), but it's unclear when it will be offered separately.

'The Right Stuff'

"The Right Stuff" is long, but it's got a high repeated-viewing quotient.

No word yet on when "Schindler's List" will make it to Blu-ray.
