'The Aviator'

The most-nominated film of the 2005 Academy Awards has good replay value, particularly if you're into Howard Hughes. Amazon is currently selling it for $9.99, though it sometimes dips to $7.99.

'Braveheart'/'Gladiator' Two-pack

At around $19, this is technically more than our $15 limit. But you're getting two full movies--the Academy Award winners "Braveheart" and "Gladiator"--for under $10 each. Even better, these are--according to the Amazon user reviews--the existing two-disc Blu-ray versions of each movie, so you're not losing any extras. It's doubly incredible when you consider that buying the same movies separately will set you back $33.32. In our book, this two-pack is a downright steal if you enjoy these historical epics, which both look great on Blu-ray.

'A Bridge Too Far'

They don't make 'em like this anymore. Richard Attenborough's 1970s World War II epic uses a cast of thousands--and no fake CGI--to recreate the doomed Operation Market Garden of 1944.

'The Dark Knight'

Another title that also made our Must-have Blu-ray list. Great for testing black levels on your TV (yes, it's a dark movie). Just don't be freaked out by the fact that the aspect ratio switches from letterbox (2.35:1) to full wide screen (1.85:1) to maintain the full resolution of the IMAX action scenes.

'Die Hard'

The original, and still the best. The film that made Bruce Willis an action star still holds up more than 20 years later.

'Ghostbusters'

David Katzmaier, our video guru, said, "You gotta have 'Ghostbusters' on the list." So here it is.

'Goodfellas'

Arguably one of the top three gangster movies ever made. It's priced right, too.

'Office Space'

Did you get that memo that the "Office Space" Blu-ray is $7.99? We need to talk about your TPS reports.

'Saving Private Ryan'

It's interesting to watch "Saving Private Ryan" again after all these years because you realize how much influence it's had on today's video games. Like Spielberg's other recent Blu-ray release, "Minority Report," the video has some grain and color hues that make it seem less than pristine--but that's how the movie's supposed to look (and it does look good). Not surprisingly, the first 25 minutes are that much more intense in HD.

'Superbad'

Amazon's running a $10.49 special on "Superbad," which we're kind of McLovin'.

Warning to those who are offended by crude and vulgar dialogue: you will be offended (to the max).

'The Terminator'

We liked it when Arnold didn't speak much.

'The Thing'

John Carpenter's horror classic is currently available for less than $15.

'The Untouchables'

"You wanna get high-def? Here's how you get it. He pulls a DVD, you pull a Blu-ray. He sends one of yours to streaming, you send one of his to Amazon. That's the Chicago way--and that's how you get high-def."

'The Wild Bunch'

Director Sam Peckinpah's blood-soaked epic Western helped redefine the genre in 1969, and it still stands as one of the greatest tough-guys-on-an-impossible-mission film ever made, thanks to great performances from old-school legends like William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan, and Warren Oates. And it's all yours in high-def, for an unbelievable $8.
