In the spirit of filmography, I still believe this site could be the best all others. I think all official releases, across all formats, should be included!!! With the current economy and the corporations re-releasing the same ole same ole, the older formats should be included!!! Another fact is with the PC environment, some of the later releases have (edited scenes, re-dubbed audio, missing scenes, etc.)

Along that line of thought, listed releases should be annotated with known issues!
