Best Blu-Ray demo film/show - 01/03/13 01:48 PM

This thread is to voice your favorite blu-ray films that encompass both amazing audio traits as well as spectacular video. You can list demo scenes as well, but I'd like to know what films/shows you deem worthy to sit down with friends with to show them what your syatem can do!

Two of my favorite current demo films are actually a movie and tv show:
-TRON Legacy (2D)
-Game of Thrones

Saving Private Ryan - beach and bridge scenes are absolute killer if your system is set up right
Master and Commander - cannons music visuals and creaking ship
U-571 - depth charges and explosions and submarine noises
Jurassic Park - T-Rex stomps the yard
Last of the Mohicans - Great Music and cannons
Gladiator - fight scenes and beginning battle
Braveheart - visuals and fights scenes.

The Avengers: The whole film.
Dispicable Me: The scene where Gru is launching to the moon almost shook my house apart.
Quantum of Solace:
I've always like The Matrix, but I only own it on DVD-I assume the blu-ray is good too.

Hmm...Anything with guns, explosions or giant creatures stomping around seems to fit the bill.

Hunt for Red October is pretty good too but in a different way.
Listen for the subtle sounds of the submarines.

We just watched The Fellowship of the Ring this weekend for Mother's Day (her choice! I love my wife!). It sounded fantastic! I'll also second Game of Thrones; both seasons are brilliantly presented.

Battleship(2012) - Silly but fun movie with amazing sound throughout.
Super 8 - The part with the train derailment where cargos and debris are thrown around.

I've been waiting a couple of years to get my system built back up with modern components to enjoy some favorite cinema. Last night I put in "Sky Crawlers" and enjoyed DTS True HD 5.1. It's a fairly slow paced sci-fi anime but there are about 6 airplane dogfight scenes for which sound engineering was commissioned to Skywalker Sound. Absolutely stunning and immersive.

Unfortunately the aspect ratio is pooched, but someone has compiled the dogfight scenes on YOutube. (Major spoiler at 9:00): http://youtu.be/fIyeuK9QBJY

War of the Worlds - for powerful LFE, especially chapter 5
Gravity - Sound immersion and stunning picture
How to Train your Dragon 2 - Incredible animation - the best in my opinion
Cloverfield - LFE do die for or to die from - depending on you sub - the best LFE I have heard
Lord of the Rings - Return of the King - best immersive LFE and stunning visuals.

Plenty more but these are my standouts.

"Days of Thunder" for its sound track. My brother-in-law is BIG NASCAR fan and was an extra to boot. He said its "closest he's been" to being there w/out going.

+1 on many previous suggestions.

The Art of Flight.

Fantastic Blu Ray for checking both video and audio calibrations.
