5. The Adventures of Indiana Jones — If it isn’t wonderful enough to have three of the most fun and adventurous movies ever made together in one boxed set, there are also loads of special features, and Spielberg didn’t get to screw it all up like he did for “E.T.”

4. “I Love the ’80s Strikes Back” — Because we all love the decade so much and because the first round wasn’t enough to satisfy the masses, the ingenious people of VH1 have provided an utterly and completely glorious series of supplemental material with new B- and C-List celebrities, better ’80s memories and more Michael Ian Black.

3. “The Lord of the Rings” Marathon — I thought the re-release of the extended edition “Fellowship” and “Two Towers” films was great, but then the studio heads of New Line decided to give you those and “The Return of the King” all in a row, showing the final part of the trilogy at midnight, Dec. 17. Too bad tickets sold out in mere minutes and can only be found on Ebay for upwards of $1,000.

2. Gambling — With the World Series of Poker having become a regular installment for ESPN and gaining popularity, Casino and Gaming Television is set to launch on cable in 2004. More gambling, that’s all the 18-34 target audience needs.

1. “Alien: The Director’s Cut” — It’s Halloween weekend and what better way to spend Friday night than watching one of the greatest sci-fi/horror films ever created. Easily one of the scariest movies of all time, “Alien” returns to theaters longer and uncut, which is scary in and of itself.
