Eh? It's not even out on DVD yet!
DTS track on 'Behind Enemy Lines'. I use this one to check out after I do any fidgeting or calibration.
The opening scene from 'The Abyss' when the big sub is going down is still awesome. The maddest bass impact and crunch ever when it hits the bottom; water rushing in makes you feel the claustrophobia and panic and ducking from the electrical explosions and fires. I havent heard it in 5.1 - I have a numbered limited edition directors cut on VHS - I'll have to pick up a copy of it on DVD when I see one.
Agreed on any of The Matrix and LOTR movies.
The artillery bombardment in 'Flags of Our Fathers' is phenomenal - if you're not running for cover during this movie you've got nerves of steel. IMO its about as realistic as it gets.
I can watch 'Aliens' (directors cut) again and again. It just never gets old.
People actually still watch movies in VHS?
I've had it for about 12 years - was good then and is still good now. People still listen to vinyl and the sound quality from good HiFi VHS is often not far short of DVD.
....Music wise ..Talking Heads's "Stop Making Sense" and Led Zep's Double DVD set sound fab ......what subwoofers were invented for!

Introduction scene to "Saving Private Ryan".
Thank Christ I was born in the sixties, not the twenties.
Still working on a favourite but my most memorable were the first. Top Gun way back when I had a Yamaha 3020 processor attached to my Musical Fidelity B1 amp in my bedroom! Then it was Jurassic Park on laserdisc when the system had moved to the family lounge!!
