I can't believe The Fifth Element hasn't been mentioned. Back in DVD days the Superbit was great and now the remastered BD is a great option.

Ratatouille!!! with bass rivalling LOTR and WOTW
Ya, Wow! The clipping lights on my EP2500 came on during the shotgun scene. That's never happened before, lol! Definitely a must add to this list.

There is a very good old movie that I've used for many years for testing changes made to the audio side.. It has excellent surround sound and covers just about every square metre of the room..
It's one of the few movies that projects sound right up to your face..Infact you can almost believe that you're going to drown!!
Good thunder and lightning and roaring sounds with some pretty dramatic explosions thrown in as well..
The movie is Deep Blue Sea...but don't watch it if "Jaws" turned your stomach!!

The difference being that Jaws was a great movie and was scary.

White noise was pretty scary sound wise, but sucked otherwise.

There are a lot and I can't remember all of them, but 300 rocks some pretty good sound. I only have an IMAX theater to compare to, but it makes my system work pretty hard, especially with the epic soundtrack. Sweet movie. If I hit the powerball, Im gonna build an IMAX theater and watch 300 everyday after work.

The subtle soundtrack of 'Apocalypto' is my favourite demo track. Not to mention the lush image. You are constantly IN the jungle. Try it, it's awesome.

Re: The best movies for home theater surround sound

I can't remember, it's been a while. I'll check it out.

BTW, I was setting up my new subwoofer today, a SVS PB12/2 and tried the infamous 'Jurassic lunch' clip from Jurassic Park III... It literally knocked my breath out, what a wild subwoofer. I'm definetly getting another one!

I actually haven't tried that scene out yet but if it's like the TRex scene in the first one it should pressurize the room nicely, even with my humble PB10-NSD

You should try it, it's truly reference when it comes to low-end oomph. Two huge lizards really go at each other, stomping around. You feel the weight of the animals real nice. Really add another dimension to the experience.
