Default Top 10 must own imports

I'm not sure if a thread like this has been created but the number of titles available is a bit overwhelming. These imports should be those that 1) aren't out on Blu-ray domestically in the US or 2) have better AQ/PQ than the domestic Blu-ray. I'd just like a definitive wishlist.

The tally, according to you fine folks, so far:

1. T2 (12)
2. The Island (11)
3. The Machinist (8)
4. Equilibrium (7)
5. Tie between Hooligans, Silent Hill, 1408 and La Haine (6).
6. Tie between Brotherhood of The Wolf, Crank, and Total Recall (5).
7. Tie between Underworld: Evolution, Perfume, Mulholland Drive and Enemy at the Gates (4).
8. Tie between The Gift, Death Sentence, Arizona Dream, The Fog, The Graduate and Reservoir Dogs (3).
9. Tie between Elephant Man, The Jackal, Fragile, Renaissance, The Bug, Les Triplettes de Bellville, Death at a Funeral, Running Scared and In the Shadow of the Moon (2).
10. Ghost Rider (1).

Already have this Blu-ray unfortunately.

Thanks for the tips so far, looks like there's going to be 100 different answers.

Any imports or just movies?
Under any imports I'll nominate Band of Brothers,
Under movies I'll second T2, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer And Total Recall (TR even with the pitch problem, it is still a good PQ transfer )

I'll nominate Fantastic Four (great PQ and AQ with DTS HD MA, don't know what the Blu has), 1408, Resident Evil (AKA Bio-Hazard Japanese HD DVD) I heard RE2 HD has better Cut of the movie. I also like Flyboys just for the AQ alone

And i'll ask the question about Mr&Mrs Smith, XXX, Under Siege 2, Reign of Fire,Reservoir Dogs, Lord OF War, Leaving Los Vegas, Tomb Raider 2, Bridge TO Terabithia,

Any import is good...the price of Band of Brothers is more I can justify, however, especially when a domestic is due by the end of the year.

I don't get anything available on BD.

Hooligans is my favorite movie I wouldn't expect to see on BD in the USA soon.

here is what I have got.

Hooligans
The Island
The Machinist
Leaving Las Vegas (PQ nothing special)
The Fog (PQ nothing special)
Elephant Man (haven't watched yet but supposed pitch issue)
La Haine
King Kong (1976)
Arizona Dream
Renaisance
Silent Hill (i think this one is on BD but the PQ is supposed to be alot better)

I think I paid under $20 USA for most of them except The Machinist.
I'm really glad to have gotten The Machinist.
