I forgot about Event Horizon in DTS. Whoo! Frightening film to say the least.

We just watched X-Men 3 via Blu-Ray which is actually in 6.1... Both my wife & I were blown away!

Re: The best movies for home theater surround sound

I watched Hollowman 2 last night and apart from some really good bass (effects and musical bass) it has some very realistic surround sounds as well..

Re: The best movies for home theater surround sound

Since I got BluRay, I have a lot more spectacular soundtracks to show off with. I think all my Blu titles have great sound, but 3:10 to Yuma and Crank stick out in memory. Of course theres also Live Free or Die Hard, but that's a given.

Onkyo 805 | Definitive Technology ProTower 400s | ProCenterC2 | BP2x | ProMonitor 100s | Dayton RF 12 HO slot ported thingy | Optoma HD70 | Play Station 3 |

Re: The best movies for home theater surround sound

I'll toss in a couple that are almost always overlooked.
Monster has a great 5.1 soundtrack
Star Trek: Nemesis looks fantastic and has an excellent DTS track.

Remake of "Flight of the Phoenix"

When setting up our 35mm surround system we had the trailer for it, it was very impressive ( they always mix those trailers right up to the redline ). So I bought the
DVD and the first 15 minutes or so is a must have for showing off your system. The
plane coming apart and crashing is amazing. I can keep playing it over and over.
Plus you get to see 'House' without his limp and speaking the Queens English, his
character is still a prick.
