DVD: Noteworthy in 2007

In trying to sort out a Top Ten list of DVDs, it occured to me that I don't really favor one over the other, and that, due to self-selection, I rarely buy or rent bad ones. It's not that they're all great, but they're never less than very good, in terms of quality, supplements, etc. So I offer an alphabetized list of noteworthy titles that can keep you busy through the year to come.
