Or maybe I bought both of them the same day. hmm

deathbucket
I think Raising Arizona. It cost like $30, too! wtf. Very few special features back then. It was probably a single layer dvd.

AdamW.
The X-men Collection(X-men, X2 and a whole lot of special features.)

gogopanda
Pearl Harbor >.>

roughrider
It was back in summer 2001, when I finally bought a player. Think the first movies I rented were Enemy At The Gates & Titan A.E.
I think the first DVD I bought was The Phantom Menace( along with several others), when it came out that fall.

For all the debate about the money spent on DVDs vs. buying Blu-ray, and is it worth it - I was buying laserdiscs back in the 90's, where the price on a new release could be anywhere from $40 to $90 & up. I only bought a dozen of them because they cost so much, but I wanted to watch movies letterboxed in their true format(VHS did that infrequently.) And the picture quality was vastly better than VHS; DVD was a bit better, but much smaller & more interactive & cost the same as VHS! I was in heaven for years.
Now, until DVD is obsolete, I'm sticking with it.

Matrix was my first DVD, in fact I think I read somewhere that many people actually bought DVD players for that movie alone. I still remember that the moving scene selection blew me away. My first Bluray film was The Fifth Element and my first HD DVD was King Kong, RIP. HDDVD stick out tongue

Emma718
Xmen 2 & Titan A.E.

The first DVD I bought was in the spring of 1998, and it was Lethal Weapon. Wasn't a great selection at that time, as DVD was still new, as I also bought Casino and The Doors that weekend.

saintsaucey

That was the first one I bought as well, in October 2001 when it was released for the first time. I had only gotten my first DVD player back in August.

I have no regrets; even if it is No. 6 of the six films, I had to have the complete collection.

derekwc
When I first got a DVD player, I bought Star Trek Insurrection (bare bones) and Strangeland along with it.

Interestingly enough I think I upgraded to the double-disc Star Trek movies somewhere along the way and no longer own the other disc at all.

captainwesker
I bought my first DVD back in 2003 from ColumbiaHouse. I think it was Bruce Almighty or Ocean's Eleven.

Rhovanion
Don't Say A Word back in 2002.

The Goonies was the reason I bought a DVD player though. I desperately wanted to see the film again but it wasn't available on VHS in Sweden. It was, however, out on DVD and so I went and bought me a DVD player. I had already ordered Don't Say A Word on VHS but hadn't received it yet so I emailed the online store and asked if they could change the order to a DVD version instead, and there you go.

srankmissingnin
My dad got a dvd player so he could watch the Matrix, but I think the first dvd I bought with my own money was bunch of anime series at a comics con when I was in high school. Probably Helsing, Trigun and Cowboy Bebop.

theICONiac
I joined Columbia House in 2002 and got 6 DVD's for only $1!

They were JPI/II/III, Trainspotting and Wizard of Oz...I was drunk most of that year and cannot recall what the other 2 were.

I am sorry.

I'm not sure. It was probably The Matrix. I know it was the first DVD I saw. I fell in love after that. I have so many damn DVDs now. But I have moved on to blu-ray..

mattjohn
My first two movies (bought them along with my first DVD player in may 1998) were:
The Game
Tomorrow Never Dies

the ninjak
The second I brought a DVD player I brought a badly re-soundtracked edition of Nosferatu.

Then I quickly brought Night of the Living Dead and Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

rudester

Scarlet315
Heroes season 1

G Morrow
Scream. The first one. My brother was an early adopter and bought a DVD player and the first Austin Powers in... 1997(?), and bought AP since it was the most interesting DVD on sale at the time. It blew my mind and ruined me for "standard" DVD menus and barebones releases. When I finally got my own player a year or so later, I got Scream, which, while a fine enough release, had a one-second delay on the menus which still bothers me.

Have a good day.

Anyhow, to answer the question, my very first DVD was Anchor Bay's double feature of Tombs Of The Blind Dead and Return Of The Blind Dead. It was around 10 or 11 bucks U.S. sometime in 2000 or 2001.
