With the holiday season rapidly approaching, THE CINEMA LASER wants to do its part to help our reader to find the perfect gift for DVD fans- both new and old. With thousands of DVD titles currently on the market, it is the intention of this Holiday Stocking Stuffer Guide to help you pick out some titles for the DVD fan in your life- whether that person is you or somebody else… However, since this is the season for giving, THE CINEMA LASER will just assume all of your selections will be for someone else.

The majority of recommendations will come from titles that have been reviewed here at THE CINEMA LASER, although a couple of other worthwhile titles will sneak their way in.  Also, I expect that some of the recommendations will be for rather obvious DVD titles. However, I hope most of the recommendations found here will point you towards DVDs you may have never considered. Also, if you are giving someone their first DVD player this holiday season, you are going to want to get them started with at least a couple of titles… so they can at least try out their new toy when they receive it.

Note: Clicking on a cover image will usually bring up a DVD review from THE CINEMA LASER, except in cases where we haven't had the opportunity to review that particular title.
