It's not really a movie but The Art of Flight is visually stunning. If you haven't seen it I strongly suggest tracking down a copy.
There are some absolutely breathtaking scenes in The Art of Flight. Definitely recommend.

Re: Top 15 Best Looking Blu-ray Films

I'd have to add Super 8 and Serenity. Almost seems unfair to compare how an animated films looks vs. live action films. The animated films just seem to have that extra little pop of fine detail, color saturation and black levels that make it very hard for me to compare them apples to apples.

And a couple of honorable mentions for outstanding restorations; Dr. No and Lawrence of Arabia. For a couple of 50+ year old films, they sure look good on Blu-ray.

Forgot about Super 8. Fantastic digital creature effects and the audio is top notch. Dr. No I haven't seen on blu yet so thanks for the heads up.

My stuff: LG 60" 4K -Yamaha RX-A3040-Panasonic BD91- Klipsch Ref series front, top, and center. Fluance AVBP2 and Panasonic Titanium Titans bring up the surrounds and rear. Klipsch 12 inch ref subwoofer.

Re: Top 15 Best Looking Blu-ray Films

Some great choices, and I've seen 11 of them.

The Incredibles has long been my movie reference when making changes to my system or listening to a different system. Not only are the audio and video fantastic, but the story is great too and it is my favorite animated film. Can't wait for The Incredibles 2 that is supposedly in the works, and hoping they can buck the trend and actually make something worthy of the first.

Watched Dr. No on Blu-ray yesterday and I have to agree the restoration was very well done nova, once again thanks for mentioning it.

Oz The Great and Powerful, some find the vivid color over saturated, I enjoy the presentation of this film visually and the audio is done well with some decent lfe in spots
