I want to pick some brains and get a list of movies that can really give my surround system a good work out. My system isn't very fancy, just a 5.1 Sony blue ray but I want to put it to the test!

The Latest Transformers movie "Dark side of the moon" hands Down is the best movie up to this point. No one here will argue that.

Transformers and Tron, got it. There's gotta be more. One of my favorites was Master and Commander, all the sounds of an old wooden ship at sea were amazing.

To name a few:

Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon
Tron: Legacy
Hulk (Ed Norton version) (sonic cannon scene and the climax battle)
Thor
Master and Commander (cannon attack where they shoot off the rudder)
How to Train Your Dragon
Star Trek (recent one directed by JJ Abrams)
Battle L.A.
Iron Man
iRobot (specifically the car chase through the tunnels while being attacked)
Black Hawk Down
War of the Worlds (Tome Cruise version... not the best movie, but great LFE)
Pearl Harbor (initial attack)
Casino Royale (initial foot chase scene)

If you're geeky enough to have a blu ray burner on your computer (they're under $100 now) there's a guy who put together a blu ray you can download free from torrent sites that has 30+ of the best clips from the movies I've listed and more, all specifically chosen to show off aspects of your HT. Greatest demo disc ever!

I think Inception should be mentioned. I hope you realize that all of these movies will make you want to upgrade your system. :) Especially the sub!!!

Dark of the Moon is an obvious choice!

I have to say the open scene of Valkyre (and the beginning of the second chapter when the planes are landing at the outpost) are very impressive to demo. Check it out!

I will repeat what just about everyone has already said, Transformers Dark of the Moon will give your system a non stop workout, it is just amazing to watch and listen to especially if you can get past the poor acting and story.
If you are looking to give a sub woofer a workout a great movie that I have not seen mentioned yet is U-571 the scene where they are dropping the depth charges is intense, also Valkyrie has few scenes where there is bombing that will shake your walls, especially in the beginning when Stauffenberg is injured.
