Re: The best movies for home theater surround sound

I had somehow never gotten around to seeing David O. Russell's THREE KINGS. The film that turned George Clooney's career around, I recall. Great movie, similar to Kubrick's best (that might sound like hype, but really, some of the dark humor is consistent with the work of the master).

From what I could tell streaming on Netflix, this film has great use of surround for helicopters, rockets, etc. Was searching for reviews and pricing on the BD before the film was over.....

Jupiter Ascending, while not the best written film (not terrible, but some questionable things), has the best dynamics I've heard in my theater, plus it looks gorgeous.

Blu-ray.com review of the 3D BD says the audio is incredible (and it's Atmos,... sa-weet!). Unfortunately, it's Jupiter Ascending. Not everyone's cuppa tea.

It's not out on disc yet, but in the theater, the sound mix of LOVE & MERCY (Brian Wilson pic) was amazing. It will show off a great HT, I promise you.

Live Die repeat, Edge of Tomorrow has some great subsonic Bass at the beginning and is well recorded throughout.

I haven't read through all the posts, but I just need to chime in and give a nod the opening sequence of Saving Private Ryan.
