When adding to your DVD collection, the decision has never been more important now thanks to streaming services at a touch of a button.
So, each month, we look at what movies deserve a space on your home-cinema shrine… (commonly known as a DVD shelf).
Here’s five films that we think have potential to be bought in a shop near you…
Director: Mike Flanagan
Writers: Stephen King (based on the novel by), Mike Flanagan (screenplay)
Stars: Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran
Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as The True Knot, who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.
A decent follow up to the cult movie, The Shining. If you own its predecessor, then you need to buy this.
Director: Paul Feig
Writers: George Michael (inspired by: the song "Last Christmas", written and composed by), Emma Thompson (story by)
Stars: Emilia Clarke, Emma Thompson, Henry Golding
Kate is a young woman subscribed to bad decisions. Working as an elf in a year-round Christmas store is not good for the wannabe singer. However, she meets Tom there. Her life takes a new turn. For Kate, it seems too good to be true.
It’s a weird time to buy a Christmas movie, but you can just prepare early! It’s definitely worth having for the festive times.
FORD VS. FERRARI
Director: James Mangold
Writers: Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth
Stars: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal
American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference and the laws of physics to build a revolutionary race car for Ford in order to defeat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.
An Oscar-nominated movie, with cracking action pieces and brilliant editing – a certain DVD shelf filler.
Directors: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
Writers: Jennifer Lee (screenplay by), Jennifer Lee (story by)
Stars: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad
Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven leave Arendelle to travel to an ancient, autumn-bound forest of an enchanted land. They set out to find the origin of Elsa's powers in order to save their kingdom.
Similarly, to Doctor Sleep, if you have the first movie, you really need to own the second. To be fair, it does help that this is great too.
Director: Rian Johnson
Writer: Rian Johnson
Stars: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas
A detective investigates the death of a patriarch of an eccentric, combative family.
What a movie to end with, this is a must own. It has everything going for it and deserves a seat on the collection shelf.
