I recently purchased Onkyo S790 HTIB and I would like to test it out. What are some of the best movies on either Dvd or Blu-ray to test out the quality of surround sound ?

So far I've tested Black Hawk Down, The Patriot, T2, Toyko Drift and Saving Private Ryan and all of them sound great.

Bad Boys II. Surround you with bullets flying and explosions.

There is always someone out there that gives you opinion of a product that they don't even own.

Beware of the fake versions that people have d/l off places like Bob's torrent site (available through the demo tree thread in Home Theater and Construction) and then put up with artwork d/l off the internet.

I think one of the best scenes for surround is the shootout after the bank robbery in Heat.

^^^^^ you do know that you replied to a 5-year old thread. There are more current movies than the the ones suggested.
