RE: Best movie to demonstrate surround sound system?

Saw 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' today. Reasonable flick; excellent soundtrack.  Good use of surrounds & sub and well-chosen Jose Gonzalez songs.  Very well produced - a good system tester.

Tempting to get the soundtrack (rather than the score itself).

The library scene from Oblivion or the airport chase scene from Casino Royale.  Smile

RE: Best movie to demonstrate surround sound system?

Saw "Red Dog" last night, a lesser known Australian movie set in the 70's about a dog that becomes a legend in a mining town miles from anywhere.  Apart from being a good chuckle with very strong characters, the sound and cinematography were first class.  Wide sound stage with excellent steering effects.  Fantastic golden red lighting in the arid dust of northern Australia.

 

Makes a refreshing change to have a movie that's a good work out for TV and surround system but ALSO has a well-crafted script and is character-driven. Recommended.
