Of course theres also Live Free or Die Hard, but that's a given.
I saw this not too long ago and I have to say the scene near the end where Bruce Willis is driving the Rig, and the fighter jet is attacking him, is one of the best I've seen in a long time. It's hoaky and unbelievable but the sound is simply amazing.

Re: The best movies for home theater surround sound

The entire star gate climax of "2001: A Space Odyssey" has a engulfing surround field and non-stop sub woofer rumbling effect for ten minutes to make you feel like you're traveling in another dimension with weird colors and imagery. You'll see the 'big bang', creation of the planets and other mysteries of the universe. Sit close to your screen if you have a DLP. It will freak you out as it did in Cinerama.

Re: The best movies for home theater surround sound

I have heard so much about this movie, but it's strange I haven't seen it till date. I think I'll have to own that movie soon

Re: The best movies for home theater surround sound

Blaser,

It's vital that you watch either the HD DVD or Blu-ray version which are so sharp
you think you're watching it in 70mm. There are a lot of white on white sets which
show pixelation in the standard DVD version. Sit close to the screen and don't try to figure
out the narrative, just experience it. The special effects and music are very lyrical.
Completely different than "Star Wars" types of films. It's also rather creepy, unsettling
and disorienting. Make sure there are no distractions and watch it in one sitting with the lights
out. It's a mood piece. Lots of Cinerama roller coaster types of shots but in space.

After watching it, you can do some web surfing to try to figure what it was
about. Kubrick wouldn't explain it which was a wise move. A number of critics and
fans have theories that are worth considering. Personally, I like it as an 'experience'
film like watching an IMAX movie. It has a non-linear narrative and is a very visual
movie. Not too much dialogue. Some people hate it but it's my favorite feature film.
See what you think.

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.
I have not checked III, but the original, with the T-Rex in DTS, with the kids in the explorer, is excellent.

Universal Soldier: Regeneration (2009)
At one point the camera pans right and you can hear the gunshots travel over to the left and hear the blood gurgling sounds. It's pretty sweet!
