Great scene no doubt Joe. Also one of my all time favorites but my list was more of a overall look what I can do type of lists. All of those movies had me smiling ear to ear throughout and are great for stretching the legs of any home theater.
Whelp we might do both we watched Lorax when we got home.. And the Colors and Quality were top notch!! So it's either Battle LA or the wife will trump and get to watch the Oscars which I won't mind to much
I read every post in this thread as I am looking for some Blu Ray ideas to test my system. One movie I would like to add to the list is "The Last Of The Mohicans" I had no idea how the audio would sound but the sound score in the movie is my favourite of any other film. But the real eye opener for me was the waterfall scene, my walls felt like they were shaking with the bass that was being produced
Also the scene where Daniel Day Lewis arrives at the fort was excellent, multiple cannon fire really tested the sub.
One of the best movies I have for surround sound effects (if it hasn't been mentioned already) is "Cowboys and Aliens"..
The scene where they are all in the old upturned Paddle Steamer has excellent surround sound..Best since "Master and Commander" IMO..
Bluray is better than DVD I believe that bluray is lossless I think that's what they call it not a master of anything so don't quote me not sure on the other sources but I would bet they all very somewhat the only dumb question as they say is the one not asked.
I don't understand the vow not to go to theaters?
I know, it's a given we all love home theater. I certainly do. But I love movies, the whole experience of home movies and movie theaters goes along with it for me. I could never make such a vow, in fact I go to the movies about twice a month -...
So, what films (DVDs/BDs) do you turn to just for the "Eye Candy" factor? Movies you may not even like, so long as they show off that new display or just WOW you for whatever reason. Here's a few of mine...
The Fifth Element
What Dreams May Come
Ghost in the Shell
I thought this might be a fun ongoing thread. You get to see what others are watching and may find a new movie for your collection. New, old, color, B&W, foreign, concert or whatever...its all good.
I'll start with an excellent animated flick with rich detail and a good soundtrack: Tim Burton's...
Okay, we did favorite artists - but I love watching concerts on my HT.
What are your top 5 concert or performance DVD's?
Roger Waters - In The Flesh Live
Eagles - Farewell 1 Tour Live From Melbourne
Funk Brothers - Standing In The Shadows Of Motown
Eric Clapton - Crossroads Guitar...
Answer some or all and use any format you desire... this is simply a guideline for those who might find it easy to use.
