BEST DVD AWARD TROPHIES

To different people this will mean different things. To some, it will be the release that kicks off an eagerly awaited series. Or it will mark the end of it. It could be the best technical release yet or it could just have that one killer episode that made it shine above anything else. Everyone has a different view on what the best of something is, especially as we all have different perceptions on the release it self due to the variety in players, TVs and sound systems.

We opened up the vote for this Best DVD Release every month to our registered users using the criteria above. The vote takes all those different things and produce a title each month that the majority of people felt, for whatever their reasons, was the best DVD of that month. The goal in the vote is for you to look at what you bought, and even with a flawed release, determine just what the best thing you got was. Do you really feel happy with it when all is said and done? And of those that made you happy, which one stands out the most?

Presented below is the list of titles our users have ranked the best of the best for the months listed.
